Book Collector reviews from customers

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

A+ for service
I would like to mention that I have used Book Collector from the early days when I think it was your only program. I am always impressed by the quick service provided.
I greatly appreciate all the help that you have offered (i.e. as before you all get A+ for service) — Chester McFarland (USA) on Book Collector

I love it
Book Collector is so much easier and friendlier to work with - I love it! and have recommended it to friends who, like me, have literally almost 1,500 books to catalog. — Skye Payne (USA) on Book Collector

The very highest quality
I am a retired librarian doing a favour for an old friend. And I have to say that, from day one, I have found your software to be of the very highest quality. Congratulations on a superb product!
I should also add that I have found your after-sales service team to be most helpful and efficient.
All Good Wishes for the future (and for Ajax!) — Richard C-H (United Kingdom) on Book Collector

Thank you!
I'm really pleased with the program, and appreciate everyone's hard work in developing and maintaining the application. Please tell the whole team 'Thank You' from me. — Bruce Rose (USA) on Book Collector

Great stuff
You've added the resize window to image for every image, wicked! I nearly missed it as it wasn't mentioned in the "what's new" and fixed all those damn toolbars too. Really great stuff and thanks to all. — Geoff Owen (United Kingdom) on Book Collector

A breeze
You guys are impressive in how you keep the product maintained. I use it a lot in my writing. I use the software multiple times a day (some days) to do key word searches for 'color' detail information about an historical topic I am writing about. I am very careful about setting up keywords etc when I enter a book so looking up information is a breeze. — Bob Bernhart (USA) on Book Collector

You've nailed it
I absolutely adore your software, and have had a blast adding my nearly 3,000 books to my database. (I've included a pic of one wall of my library.) It's fantastic to be able to check the mobile app while out shopping, to make sure I don't buy a duplicate of something I already own.
I wish you continued success, which you greatly deserve, because you've nailed it with the library software.
I have recommended your apps to many people – anyone who collects books, music or movies – and will continue to do so, although I think I’m too old to know anyone who collects comics or video games. LOL — Melissa Bailey (USA) on Book Collector

Loving the program
Happy Holidays to everyone! Still loving the program and recommending it at every book sale I go to! — Vicki Bross (USA) on Book Collector
