I can genuinely say this is one of the best thought out database systems I have come across in quite a long time, and the all-important user interface is really well designed indeed. It is truly a joy to use & does everything I need. The automatic data-entry mechanisms & scope for maintaining pick lists etc are exactly what is required to facilitate the arduous task of data-entry, and the facilities for listing, displaying images, sorting, and printing are superb and very intuitive.
I found that the competitor products quite often failed on automatic lookups via ISBN (particularly those systems designed in the USA), whereas Book Collector has very rarely done so up to now- I'm amazed at how often it finds details for books I have which are 50 years old or more & don't show an ISBN (or even an SBN!).
So congratulations on a really brilliant piece of software - I would recommend it to anyone needing to catalogue their book collection.
But the most superior is the SUPPORT. They are fast, nice, helpful, effective. This is at least 6 stars (from 5)!
Wat book collector voor mij waardevol maakt, is dat ik op titel, schrijver of ISBN alle info vanuit een database in mijn systeem kan opslaan. Ook het synchroniseren van de verschillende apparaten via een cloud functie maakt het voor mij ideaal. Tenslotte: de zoekfunctie maakt dat je nooit lang in je 'boekenkast' hoeft te zieken naar dat ene boek dat je zo goed vond en aan iemand wil aanraden. Naam van schrijver of deel van titel is voldoende. Krijg dat maar eens voor elkaar als je niet in je eigen huis bent.
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.
