Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

*** Version 1.1.8 update ***
Bug fix
******************************

Do you love reading so much that you forget which books you've purchased? Always forgetting the name of the book you've been wanting to buy?

Use "Book Collector" to help you keep track of your book collection ("Book Collector" does not currently allow you to purchase or download books through it)

In a simple to use design, track books in your collection by entering the ISBN (title search and author search coming very soon!) and the app will automatically download information from Open Library about that book. If information about a book isn't found, simply type in the information and even upload your own book covers to display within the app.

Quickly sort your books by author or title.

Add your own notes to easily find those books later!

Search for details on books you've entered by title, author, notes, genre, loaned to, or filter by books you own or want, whether they are physical or digital copies, ones you've read or have yet to read, or any combination!

Book Collector helps you keep track of your books so you can focus on reading and enjoying them again!

    Great idea

    This is a pretty good app. Need to make sure you save each book as you enter it. It allows you to specify what format the book is, whether you own it or want to buy it and whether or not you have read it. While it will list the book, it only lists title and author not any of the book synopsis. it does not have a section to make notes, select a genre, or if your massive bookworm like me make note that it has been loaned out and to who. If the developers added those options this would be an amazing 5 star app. But if your just looking for an app that will allow you to keep track of what you have and what you want to get, this app maybe for you

    Disappointing

    Out of the 8 ISBN numbers I searched, only 1 came up. The others I had to add manually. I realized that this was going to be a very slow process. I closed the application and when I returned to it later to add more books, the ones that were suppose to be there, were gone. This app needs some major work on it before I'd recomend it to anyone.

    Useful app!

    I really like being able to see all of my books in one spot. Book covers are nice and big on my screen. Even for the ones it found, I could put my own pictures up if I found better covers somewhere else. Adding books was a little confusing at first because I didn't realize I had to press save before my book was saved to my list, but then I was able to search for books I wanted to buy later and see pictures of everything I saved. Like it!

    Okay..sort of

    I wanted to have a quick reference of my books, which it does...but I'd rather it sort the books alphabetically within the by author sort. Also, the Title Sort files books beginning with "The" under "T" and "A" under "A" which is really annoying.

    Great possibilities......with fixes and changes !

    This has the possibilities of being a great app but a lot of work still needs to be done! I agree with the Feb. 3rd review where they really need to add other elements. In addition to this, as with a previous reviewer, I entered the ISBN's of several (27!) Books and only 4 of them showed up!! It's extremely time consuming to enter all of the information manually after already trying to search unsuccesfully for the ISBN. Regardless of the previous reviews, I purchased this app in the hopes that the 1.04 Update had corrected these. I'm still hoping they come out with more updates. If they do, they could have a best seller!

    Not worth it!

    For me, this app was to difficult to figure it out. After a week or two of trying to figure it out I deleted it from my nook. I will stick with Goodreads!

    Okay app

    I would like it better if after entering manually it could be edited using a connection. The part of our house that stores books does not recieve service so.... Between husband myself and child we have tons to enter. Please update to make this app better. Would love a dvd app like this. Last we counted over 3,000 movies.

    This would be a great app if you didn't have to enter all your books manually. I have well over 300 books, needless to say it will take a while to get them all entered. Perhaps at some point they could link it with B&N to do searches.

    Only app available like this.

    It is frustrating that not all ISBN's are registered. Also, the sort feature is not alphabetical. You cannot sort by Author the sort by Title.
    The only nice thing about it the ability to keep a log of all my books so I don't duplicate books anymore. You can also keep track of the books you have yet to read. But that's pretty much it.

    Updates

    Good app but needs several things:
    1. Ability to enter ISBN numbers and later have the app find the book online. Perhaps an update button. I do not have internet at home.
    2. A scroll bar on side so I don't accidently open book while scrolling.
    3. A numbered list.

    This app is a wonderful idea, but it does not work. I don't know

    This app is a wonderful idea, but it does not work. I don't know where the ISBN is searched , but it didn't find any more than 10% of the books I own. The search engine needs major work to search (either b&N or Google). Hopefully when that is fixed then it will became a good app. As it is today, it is not worth the time for the money.

    It's alright BUT it is more work then you would think no fun

    I just got this and i thought it would be really cool to see all the books I have. But out of the 15 plus books i have gotten done they don't have half an i had to put them in, i don't mind but even when they do have them it only brings up the title i have put in every thing. The worse part is i'm bad with titles but i can tell you the story and what the cover looked like. I wanted this so i could have the picture and title next to each other but this thing is only giving me the titles i have to go and find the covers and copy them on to here. It would be more fun to take pics and glue them to pages in a book, you know that sounds like a fun idea.

    Just what I wanted!

    I was able to easily catalog 186 books by entering the ISBN # All info auto entered on most books. I added in title on a few and author's name on a few more. Many had cover art attached. I don't know a short way to get the ISBN# on each of my digital bopks, however, since they are already in the Nook library, I'm not worried about it.

    Awesome

    I love this app. Not only can I add my regular books and my digital books I also use it to add my all my DVD's Now I can put all my books and movies n in one place. I can mark which ones I have read (or for my DVD read means watched). My only negative I wish you could search by typing in a title and search that way. You can sort by title or author but you can only search by ISBN number.

    Great app!

    My 3 year old already has a huge collection of books. This has been great so I don't rebuy a book. I do have to manually enter a few but most of her books do come up by isbn. I do wish it would promt you to save if you forget and hit add book before pressing save. But overall a great app if you just want to track your collection. I wish they had an app for her movie collection.

    Needs serious updates

    This app has potential to be really good but needs work. The makers need to use a better search for finding the book like google. If that happens it would be better.
