Shelves


*** Hello friend. Shelves is now an open source project. You can access the source code at https://github.com/gjtorikian/Shelves***

*** Development is now entirely dependent on open-source contributions. My infinite gratitude to the people who downloaded and supported this app, as well as everyone who offered words of praise or encouragement. It was for you all that I kept this app going for so long. ***

Shelves is an Android application that manages your collection of apparel, board games, books, comics, gadgets, movies, music, software, tools, toys, and video games.

With Shelves, you can add items in a number of ways, such as:

* By scanning barcodes
* From the Internet
* Entering details manually

You can also import and export data from a variety of sources, including Google Books, Google Drive, BoardGameGeeks.com, or Shelfari. There's also full support for software such as Dropbox, Delicious Library, and MediaMan.

Shelves lets you organize your collection by:

* Providing sorting rules on title, price, author, or format (CD, DVD, Vinyl, e.t.c.), and more
* Searching across all available item attributes
* Tagging and filtering your collection
* Allowing for the selection of multiple items

You can loan items to friends in your contact list, or rate items for your personal use. You can also opt to place items in a separate wishlist category.

Additionally, items can be in any language!

THIS APPLICATION IS SUPPORTED BY ADS. YOU CAN BUY THE SHELVES UNLOCKER ON THE MARKET TO REMOVE THEM. Additionally, some features are unavailable, unless the unlocker is purchased.

Thank you to everyone who supports a one-man development team, acting as developer, tester, documentation writer, as well as customer and public relations. I wouldn't do this if it weren't for all of you.

The following is a list of permissions that Shelves requests, and the reasons for their use. If you're not satisfied with the explanations I have here, by all means, contact me and I'll try to explain them further.

The following permissions deal with sending and receiving your collection to Google Spreadsheets. Google is VERY serious about account security, and as such, Shelves has no idea what your login credentials are. Shelves does NOT ask for your password. In this case, Shelves is only asking the Android/Google system whether or not you've successfully logged in:

* MANAGE THE ACCOUNTS LIST
* USE THE AUTHENTICATION CREDENTIALS OF AN ACCOUNT
* GOOGLE SPREADSHEETS
* GOOGLE DOCS (Google Docs in this case is not Google's online word processor, but rather the entire Google Docs suite)
* DISCOVER KNOWN ACCOUNTS
* VIEW CONFIGURED ACCOUNTS
* READ GOOGLE SERVICE CONFIGURATION

This connects Shelves to the Internet, and lets it download all the item information (covers, descriptions, e.t.c.):
* FULL INTERNET ACCESS
* VIEW WI-FI STATE

These manage how Shelves loans to your contacts, and adds reminders to your Google Calendar:
* READ CONTACT DATA
* READ CALENDAR EVENTS
* ADD OR MODIFY CALENDAR EVENTS AND SEND EMAIL TO GUESTS

This permits Shelves to access the cover images and import/export files to the SD card:
* MODIFY/DELETE USB STORAGE CONTENTS
* MODIFY/DELETE SD CARD CONTENTS

This keeps Shelves awake while imports occur. If the device's screen goes dim or falls asleep, the import could fail:
* PREVENT DEVICE FROM SLEEPING

This is necessary for Shelves to store your account preferences when doing an automatic backup (only for Android 2.2 and above):
* MODIFY GLOBAL SYSTEM SETTINGS

* * *
Original code held (C) 2008 Romain Guy; this project is based off of his. Modifications were made in the source and noted in appropriate places.

Recent changes:
* Fix broken images when adding new boardgames (Thanks, James Armes!).

looking forward to using this

I had this app on my Google phone and it worked great. But on my new Samsung Replenish the scanner won't scan the barcodes anymore. It's too blurry. It'd be awesome if the scanner would auto focus or something.

Updated it to latest, now all my book thumbnails are gone. Was not expecting it to go backwards, had been enjoying very much until now, is the reason I decided to buy it to show support. Some sort of explanation/fix would be appreciated. :(

The best Product manager on Android, especially for Video Games and Manga! It has pretty much everything! Even out-of-country products if you set the region in settings! Needs multiple library support though. I'd like to keep my books separate from my manga. Likewise with certain video games.

Can't add comics Books, films and games work fine but I can't add comics. I can search for them but when added the are always "null". This is stopping me rating this higher.

If I could only save one app... I find it indispensable for keeping track of which DVDs I have (which I see is now a couple of thousand, blush!) It is not perfect, and there have been some problems with some updates over the years, but it is still the best purchase I have made on the Play store. Thank you.

Doesn't work Was missing a book or two but it worked well at first. Got a new phone and paid for the unlocker to transfer the data and it didn't work. It took me like 2 hours to catalogue all my books and it won't transfer! Waste of time! :(

Invisible Tags Why do tags you have added not show up? And why does price not show when product details open up?

Was great until I had to reset phone to factory After phone reset reinstalled app and tried to import from Google docs app logs in fine downloads file fine but fails to import data. Days import file cannot be found. Wouldn't recommend this app at all especially if you are trying to scan things for insurance purposes like I was.
