Book Collector reviews from customers

Thank you
I am a avid reader. I have lots of applications on my computer, but I have to comment you have a very well written program. You are consistently updating and improving. — Gene (USA) on Book Collector

Great bit of software
I can't believe how fast the new cloud sync is. That's a great step forward. Shortly before I did a sync with 364 changes and it took ages. Now they happen in a blink. Great work to the team.
This is a great bit of software that just keeps on getting better. — Mal Ferguson (Australia) on Book Collector

Piece of gold
Your software is a piece of gold, and I’m anxious to get back to using it. — Patricia Carr (USA) on Book Collector

My book database
When I bought the app it was after a good many years where I had made my own database, just to be sure that I didn’t borrow books from our local Danish libraby, that I’ve already read. I gave it up when I found Collectorz. I combined from the start the PC application and the Android do.
Soon I realized that it was not all of my read books, that I did put up on the DB. But rather books that I wanted to talk with other people, friends and acquaintances, about.
Somehow there’s also a satisfaction with just looking and seeing what you have spent your time with. I mean a book, read, represents hours and hours of time.
I am very satisfied with the Coillectorz.com – and I follow the development of the app carefully. For example the latest I have discovered: the possibility to make categories of your books – that could be periodically read, year by year, or otherwise. — Finn Alring (Denmark) on Book Collector

Stellar product
I just downloaded the latest version of Book Collector, and I have to say, it amazes me, how you people continue to improve an already stellar product. I would be absolutely lost with your program. Thank you, doesn't seem adequate for all you do. I wish I could look each of you in the eye, and say thank you in person. Please know that the hard work each one of you do every day, makes my life better. I hope I am saying this correctly,"Heel erg bedankt."
I tell everybody what great products you have and how wonderful your customer service is. — Keith Petersen (USA) on Book Collector

Wonderful resource
I LOVE my Book Collector (and with well over 2600 books, I NEED it LOL) What a wonderful resource. I have recommended it to many people. You're all great and so responsive. — Roberta Monteparte (USA) on Book Collector

DE oplossing om mijn boekenverzameling overzichtelijk te houden
Al heel lang verzamel ik pop-up boeken..Eerst wist ik nog wel welke ik al had en welke niet, maar toen ik dubbele ging kopen maakte ik in Excel een bestandje en printte dat uit en nam dat elke keer mee....aangevuld met handgeschreven informatie. Maar toen ontdekte ik Collectorz.com, echt geweldig!!!!!!
Alle boeken staan er (bijna) en nu kan ik zelfs met mijn telefoon in de winkel zien of ik een boek al heb door het isbn te scannen. Ontzettend blij ben ik er mee , het is heel gebruiksvriendelijk en jullie support is ook snel en adequaat, als het nodig is. — Anneke Eggink (Netherlands) on Book Collector

Love your software
I love your software. I have a non profit called Book buddies and I was trying to keep a log of all the books we give away and I was typing out each title. Finding your sofware was very helpful. — Laura Williams (USA) on Book Collector

Marvellous software
I currently have entered in Book Collector over 9100 books and have about 2000 more to go. Your software is the greatest!
Besides organizing my collection so that I can know what I have read, I use Book Collector on my cellphone when I am in a book store so that I can determine if already a book in my collection or not, to prevent buying a duplicate. It has saved me spending money when I have forgotten that I have a book already. Also to know what format, condition, and cover, that I have, if I want to get a book in a different copy version.
Thanks again for you marvellous software and your advice. — Guy Platz (USA) on Book Collector
