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! :-)

Ouch mmmmhm yikes Sorry, but this app sucks. I thought you can read a book on it. Please make it better. I would actually give it 0 stars but I have to give at least one

Great idea but needs tweaking The barcode stops working after each book. It doesn't give my books thumbnails unless I add them through the search options. It could also do with a way to access the same account on other devices. A way to link to Facebook or goodreads could be interesting.

Great app! At first I was upset because I put all my books into this app (over 250) and then couldn't find the way to export to a spreadsheet which is the whole reason I wanted it. But I found it! If you have a Samsung phone (I have galaxy note 4) hold down the button you usually use to close open apps (the button to the left of the home button). A menu will come up with the export feature. I love everything about this app now!
