BooksApp


BooksApp helps you organize your home library effortlessly. Scan the barcode of a book and all its information is downloaded from the web and saved to your phone automatically¹. You can then easily keep track of your books.

To lend a book to someone, scan it (or open it from the list), press "Lend book" and select your friend. When a month has passed, you will get a notification to remind you where the book is. If you have a book you want to recommend to a friend, you can do that over SMS, e-mail or Facebook etc.

You can organize your books into collections, e.g. "Favorites", "Reading now" or whatever tickles your fancy.

Finding more books is trivial. You can search for books by the same author or publisher, or books dealing with the same subject, all without typing a single character. Saving any of the matches to your phone is just one tap away.

You can export books in two ways, either as a spreadsheet—which you can send to anyone—or to Google Docs². The spreadsheet is a CSV (Comma-separated values) file that you can open in any spreadsheet program. You can also send the file to other BooksApp users, both Android and iPhone users.

Importing books is done by opening a CSV file from an e-mail or from the file manager.

BooksApp exists for iPhone as well, see www.books-app.com for more information.

Happy book organization! :-)

Good but... It's easy yo scan but some features (like manual ISBN additions) would be great. Also, taking a picture from within the app instead of only selecting pics from the gallery would be faster.

So far so good... Is there any way to add the ISBN number search. As a teacher using scholastic books the majority have the ISBN number written but not as the barcode. Would be amazing to be able to search the same database already used by inputting the ISBN. Thanks thanks thanks!

Barely scans, missing a lot. Out of around 140 books new and old it scanned 70. I could understand it being unable to scan old books and just new but this isn't the case. It is super inconsistent. It scanned 4/5 old Aliens books, but only 1 out of the Percy Jackson series all part of the same set. It scanned 3/4 maze runner books even though they bundled in the same set. One thing that would make this infinitely better for me is the option for it to go straight to camera when manually giving a book a picture.

I seriously love this app. I work in a used book store so I'm always checking my stock to see if I need a certain book for my home library. I only really wish I could use this on on laptop. I need something comparable to booksapp for my pc.

Look up with ISBN This is so far the best app I have found... but I would love to the app to search for the book information by typing in the ISBN. I do have quite a few books without a barcode.
