Most Helpful Reviews
Very Nice App - Once I found the scan/video option to enter in my books, I filled the 30 book limit in a little over a minute. The flexibility in display, type of collection, items to search for, etc… all make this an easy to use and powerful personal cataloging system. If that is what you are looking for, you will NOT be disappointed.
Worthless - This is basically a trial version of the full app -- not a "liter" version of it. It only allows you to add 30 books to the library without purchasing the $30 version of the app.
