CLZ Books reviews
I strongly recommend this product and the other Collectorz products to anyone needing a way of cataloging their collections, whether it is books, music or movies as it is in my case.
I love that you can sort it in so many ways including by location. I have several shelves all over the house and I can easily see where a book is just by sorting them in the app.
Even better, if you loan a book to someone, just add them as a location and you can keep track of where it went.
Also, I think being able to add additional photos of the book would be helpful, especially when trying to determine if my copy is better than one I'm considering to buy. But, otherwise, defiantly worth the expenditure!
And, in case you're wondering, the computer program is also worth looking into too!
The graphics, and choice of book cover displays, are exceptional. This app has been well thought out. Added features such as recording price of the books also helps me keep track of my expenditure. Brilliant!
If I could find any way to improve this app, I would include an option or link to a website that gives a full list of all books written by your selected author. This would really complete this app! Well Done all the same though
If you want to do more than just upload your books, i.e. organize your books by genre, subject, or tag, it can be a bit tedious, as each book must be edited individually. However, if you just want to scan in your book collection and are happy with organization by author and the existing genre and subject labels that come with each electronic book record, you will be good to go.
I've not tried other book indexing apps, so I can't say how this might stack up against the competition. However, I like the simple interface. It's also nice to be able to organize and view my book collection in so many different ways.
Being able to flip through horizontally is the closest I've found to something online that simulates scanning my eyes along a shelf of books. This is a terrific feature!
It's easy to add new books to your collection simply by scanning the barcode on the book or entering it's ISBN number. There is a ton of data that the app gets for the books you add, so you don't have to put the info in.
Before I bought it I would go book hunting and end up with several that I already owned but could never remember. Now I pull out my app and never have to buy doubles again!!!!
