Limited functionality and Crashes like no one's business I am disappointed with this app. Any time that I am using the app and I switch to something else and then come back to it, it reports that it has stopped working so I have to restart it every time. When I look at one book and then look at another the app as an incrediblably difficult time of showing the new book. A feature that I think would be a good addition to the next update would be the ability to mark books at "sent". If the developer fixed these issues I would give it 5 stars.

Can't even log on Bought this app, can't even log on. How do I even update? DL free one for now and getting refund for this until fixed. Really need/want a nice app to scan all my books.

Must download additional scanner app? I'm wary of this app. 3rd party plugin? Huh? I use the PBS Wishing app to scan books at my train station and was hoping this 'unofficial' app of PBSwap would be a step up. Not so. Stay ahead of the competition and develop an in-house scanner and keep the updates coming! Thanks for listening.
