Great App Tried lots of others. But this works the best for me. However I need to transfer the data I have entered to a new device. Is there a way to do this as I have almost 400 books catalogued and don't want to do have to capture all again. Any ideas please

Needs some work Is ok as far as it goes, but is not ready for prime time. A search by ISBN, sorting alphabetically, condition field, first edition check box, all would be appreciated.

Room for Improvement The application works just as it should but [1] It's not easy to enter the information on books not in the system (since I cannot edit in bulk, it's very time consuming to use: entering the summary, series, authors) [2] most books don't have covers (makes the lists I've made very ugly). [3] I cannot add the book automatically to my wishlist as I have to save the book first then go to the wishlist section.
