“You've never had so much fun with software... it's just so cool! And it just might buy you some time for more important things.” –David Pogue

“The best of the home inventory managers I tested.” -Farhad Manjoo, New York Times

Just hold the barcode of any of these items up to your Mac's iSight and Delicious Library does the rest. The barcode is scanned and within seconds the item’s cover appears on your digital shelves filled with tons of in-depth information for items from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, and Germany.

Publish your collection to the web with one click, and simply drag an item onto on of your contacts from Address Book to loan an item out and NOT forget who has it.

- Workaround OS X 10.9 issue where covers sometimes draw black & white and striped.
- Fixed crash when running in Spanish and creating or editing a shelf.
- Fixed a problem when exporting to XML with an XSLT.
- Fixed crash when enabling iTunes (or just if iTunes is enabled on launch) from 2.8.

It's Delicious! - This app simply delivers. With a beautiful UI, an easy to understand interface, and an ingenious method of cataloguing (via the iSight camera), this app is nothing but WIN!

Review by Help Me Pleasse

Not a great app so far. - This crashed taking over 300 entries with it (a lot of which had to be manually entered rather than scanned) plus it won't open the saved library, stating it is in the wrong format. On top of that, it appears to have filled my back up disc. I have written to Delicious Library, and only got back a proforma reply, telling me they may not necessarily answer my email. Since some of the questions of their website appear to have been unanswered for some time, I am hoping they will get to me a bit sooner. Like a lot of people that use these apps, I have no techical knowledge, I just want the thing to work.

iSight barcode scanner hasn’t gotten anything correct yet - Trying it out and the Barcode recognition appears to think my science fiction is a mix of Louis L’Amour and butterfly watches. I’m not sure what database it’s pulling from, but whoa is it inaccurate.

Delicious Library 2 - This works fine, my only problem is it is kindle based. I have a kindle. I also have a nook. I have basically decided I really don't care if all the details are correct, I'll edit whatever I feel matters. I hope if anyone is trying nosing around they are properly confused.

Review by Nomisnesbocaj

It is lovely! - I used DL II to inventory my personal library of 1000 books and titles and then went on to inventory all my household stuff. I am currently using it to inventory my father’s library of 4000 titles and records and CD’s with a professional librarian using the handy dandy barcode scanner. This thing does what it says it will do and its fun. I am not feeling the love on version III however, its website is absurd and I can’t glean any reason to update to it.

Review by iDittohead

Standard Setting Application - This is really a gold standard for app user experience. I have been using Delicious Library 2 for years. This has a beutiful interface that shows off the true beauty of immersive application design which is a great contrast to the uglier flat design found in modern Apple applications.
