  • Almost Perfect

    By Kathy255
    I have used iBookshelf almost as long as I have had iPads, so that tie you an idea of my priorities in apps. I’m still fond of it, but it’s always been a bit clunky and has lost the ability to randomly select a book to read. So I went looking for a new one, and after looking at the options, doing a bit of research and trying the Bookbuddy sampling app, I decided this was worth the money a few weeks ago (bundled with the movie app). I have been gradually transferring my records and I’m continuing to be satisfied in almost all respects with this app. I’m not sure why the movie app allows multiple genre entries and this one doesn’t, but that’s not a real problem, I don’t need that. One thing I am dissatisfied with is that when I enter the volume number in a series, it restrict entries to integers. Personally, I have omnibus and novels/novellas/short stories between volumes so I would like to be able such things as 1-3 and 3.5. However, the rest of the app makes enduring this worthwhile. I am placing these in the subtitles right now, but altering this would make this app perfect.

    This app is by far the best app to manage your book collection and to help you keep track of who you loaned books out to. It even does graphic novels. I just wish it do individual comic books. Great app and I love the movie buddy app as well. Good job.

  • Promising but flawed

    By Khalandl
    The scanning and sorting features are great, but the importing function is flawed to the point of junk. Wasted a lot of time trying to import my existing 1,000+ book library.
  • Esta App es excelente

    By Homelawyer
    Por 40 años mi biblioteca fue un desastre. Pero al fin, gracias a esta aplicación logré organizarla. La aplicación es muy fácil y contiene todo lo necesario para organizar nuestra biblioteca. Sinceramente es excelente.
  • Amazing

    By Sac0198
    I really liked how I could scan all my library and sort them into the bins I keep. I wonder if there is a way to see a list of who checked out the book prior, just to see if the book is damaged who did it and if it is being read at all. Still learning new things on this app but totally worth it.
  • Great app

    By F5pastorpatrick
    I got this app a while ago. When I first got it I thought it would be great with a bar code scanner. After manually entering in my library I sent an email to the developer with the thought. They responded and told me it was coming in a future update. Here it is and I love it!!! Great tool to help me keep track of everything and now even easier to use. Thanks.
  • Love it!!

  • Needs work

    By British Kate
    Wish there was a away to sign out or have multiple libraries. I want to use for my school and home libraries
  • Great app!

    By ashleydoodles
    I love this app! The only minor complaint I have is for sorting options. I’d love to be able to sort the titles without using prepositions (it, the, an, etc). Maybe I’m doing something wrong?
