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! :-)

It almost meets all my needs... I was so happy to find this app! As a elementary teacher, I have a lot of my personal books mixed in with the classroom library and this app makes it easier to track where and who has what. The only downside is that the app doesn't have a way to track multiple copies. If this feature could be added, it would be perfect! *Update: it would also be great if we could link this to an email in case a device crashes like mine did. Now I have to completely reenter all of my data.

Love the app! Love how simple the app is to use. I would like to ask for a cloud option or an email link, for when you change phones or need to backup your collections. But making a collection is easy, and lending is as easy as find a contact. Very well done app.

Better on iPod I have this installed on my iPod, and love it. I install it on mytouch Android, and it crashes. I have tried installing it 6 different times. Same results. After I add, 1 or more books and close out, I try to open back up, and it crashes.
