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 idea but app closes constantly! Every time I scan a book the app closes down. I'm so disappointed because it would be so useful for my classroom.

Nice app Nice app, finally able to track people I have lended books to. It would be nice to automatically be able to download a cover based on the book title though.

Doesn't work! Every time I scan a book it comes up as, "Attack on Pearl Harbor" and shuts down.

One of the best but no backup feature. One of the better book catalog apps on the market, but exporting a file is not enough because you can't capture book covers in a CSV file. You must have a way to back up your data including the pictures and this is instantly a 5 star app.

Good app Would give it 5 stars if you can import lists of books already and if it can also search Amazon and eBay half for more books
