App is wonderful
It is a great way to catalogue books and to manage them. I like to fact you can have your entire library right on your cell phone.

The perfect solution
Book Collector is the perfect solution for anyone who loves books. It’s extensive functions allow tracking of anything and everything about a book and how it is used, but not daunting if its only purpose is to manage a home library. The website is easy to use and the online manual is well-organized and clearly written.
As a blind computer user with Apple’s screen reader, I am always so grateful to find such a high degree of accessibility in a program like this. It is a blessing to be able to manage my home library without the need for much sighted help.
It is a credit to your programmers that the program is accessible. They obviously took care to meet the guidelines for its support. I suppose that not many blind folks care about books. My blindness came on in my 30s so I had a house full of treasures I wanted to recall, organize and pass along to my son. Audio books have kept me sane but there is nothing like a book in hand and turning a page. I fear before too long too few will be able to know that pleasure.
I have enjoyed working with you. Your communication skills are outstanding. I hope that whoever pays you recognizes the value in that .
If you are ever in the USA and near North Carolina, Do let me know. I would like to thank you in person and buy you dinner for all this effort on my behalf. Truly.

Everything is great! I paid for the upgrade already. This is a wonderful way to store my library and help me organize it as well.

Marvelous software program
Collectorz is a marvelous software program. It is so intuitive, beautifully designed and user-friendly. I have a fairly large library and I have never had it more cataloged and organized!

Been using it for years. My book buddy and I can check which books we have in order to avoid duplicates. Also use it at the bookstore and library to see if I have it or read it.

It's been working great for a few years now. My only comment would be the plethora of options available means I can spend even more time in my library making adjustments.

A real time saver
I love your programs (I also have the Music Collector). I have an extensive library of English and German language books. A substantial part of my library is reference material and Book Collector and its search features are a real time saver. I currently employ an IT student for data entry and proof his work on my iPad. The next step for myself will be entering all my eBooks. I use the iPad for my own data entry. Works great!

I have been using Book Collector for a very long time now. It has steadily shown a continual process improvement and in my humble opinion is better than some of the large library cataloging system software my wife used as a librarian. Recently I just added Movie Collector to the collection software I now use and it is also a great product.
I highly recommend all of the apps Alwin and the folks at CLZ have developed. The interface is intuitive and easy to follow. The money spent on these programs is money well spent. I love the update program as it allows one to be absolutely sure that you are in possession of the latest version and fixes. My personal rating for these PROGRAMS is 6+ stars....
Thanks to all of the CLZ team.

Greatest library software
I have a vast library and the thought of getting software to automate it had me horrified. This software was well priced and the customer service has been tremendous. They have gone the extra mile to help a non-computer guy like me to make sure I was able to get up and running. When I have had trouble because of my ineptitude the customer service has gotten back up and running again. I will never stop using this software.

I've been look for an iOS app for some time to keep a library of the books I've read, so when I'm in a store I can scan the database to see if I've already read it. Very frustrating to get home and find out I already have a copy. CZL solves that issue. The bar scanner is really fast and adding my whole library was done in 30 mins.

Love this APP!
We have found this program to be so helpful to catalog our book collection. The app is a great addition to the software. I am able to add books when I am away from my computer and sync it when I am able. It also helps me to keep from buying a book I already own when I'm out book buying. This has saved me money. The other thing I have used it for is to check where in my home library a book is supposed to be when we can't find it. The pictures are so helpful. I can enter the books on the software the way they are positioned on our shelves and then scroll through the pictures on the app on my iPad to see what shelf the book we're looking for is and what books it is in between. This has saved us so much time.

Fantastic app for organisation
Makes sure I know what books I have so I don't buy twice! Also lets me be in control of my library.

I have the CLZ Book Collector program on my PC, and sync my library to the cloud. I can then download my whole library onto the app, and have a handy reference for whether I already own a book or not. If I'm out and buy a book, I can add it through the app and sync it with my computer later. Fabulous!

Handy when I'm book shopping
I use it to keep track of what books I have, so that when I shop I know if an interesting book would be a new addition to my library. I find it easy to add books by scanning ISBN bar code on back cover or inside cover, which works for almost all books. Older books (~40+ yrs) that don't have recognizable ISBN, I search by author and title then select to add (still relatively easy). In very rare cases I've added a book manually and included the front cover picture that I took myself.

I've been using this program for many years. Outside of professional library databases this is the best product out there.

Best catalog app in the market
Lets face it, if something is good, like really good, its gonna cost something. I personally feel the 1 time cost to get unlimited space is so worth the money! And it's not even an arm and a leg cost. I love this app because im hoping to one day have Belles library from beauty and the beast so im gonna need not only a little more space but something to make sure im not doubling any of these books, and at just a little over 400 right now, i can say this app has definitely helped me avoid that!

Best app I have found yet
Have scanned in my whole library! I love the bulk scanning feature. This is the only app I have seen with it.
