Most Helpful Reviews
Good stuff - Although I experienced a few difficulties in making the iPhone app work properly, I must say that this app is excellent. My entire collection (+500 international books) was quickly added to the database, and the information gathered was usually precise and complete. I would highly recommend it for those who need to manage large collections of books. However I would appreciate better documentation and a more intuitive interface.
Expensive app, complete waste of money - I purchased this app so I would have all my books listed with me whenever I went to the library or bookstore. I loved the idea of being able to share the list between my Mac and mt ipod Touch, even though I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on an app. I figured it would be worth it for the convenience of not having to create a manual catalog of my books. Almost right away I ran into problems - the barcode photo scanner was very sensitive so it took a long time to get a clear enough picture for the app to recognize the book. It was faster to type the barcodes in by hand, so I did. That wasn't so bad, but it was not made clear in the description of the app that you would need wifi to transfer between the two. I did not have wireless in my home at the time, so it did not work. I recently added a wireless internet to my home and tried to transfer the files, it did not work. I followed the directions given to share with Bonjour from my Mac, opened sharing in the Touch app, and got nothing. After several tries, I gave up in frustration. Apps are supposed to be easy to use, and this one is just about useless. I wish the app store gave refunds, I would definitely return this app if possible. It is a complete waste of money, and such a disappointment when I had such high hopes for it.
