Love Book Connect
Many thanks as always for your kindness and generosity. I have always appreciated working with you.
A real blessing to me to keep my library in shape. You have a GREAT product in Book Connect, and I can be assured that all your other offerings have the same high degree of excellence.
At age 82, I really appreciate the simplicity and completeness of Book Connect.

Book Collectorz is one amazing application!
I've been using it now for a few years to manage a 1000 book library collection for my quilt guild. What I really love is that the Collectorz team is constantly making improvements to the app that make it easier and faster for the user to manage their collection. The team is responsive and genuinely interested in what their users have to say about the program. The app is simple to use, and very intuitive. You can slice and dice your collection in any way you want to see what you have, and there are a lot of customizable fields if you have specific interests. The connection to "core" is flawless, and simply by putting in the ISBN from the back of a book you get all the information you need in seconds. The price is very reasonable for the value you get from this app.
While I haven't used their other products, I'm sure they are just as refined and useful. Thank you CLZ team, great job!

Great App Organizer
I am an avid reader and collector. I never thought to have a catalog system for my books. After using this app to get an idea of my library, I found that I purchased several books twice. Donated those to the local library.

Great tool for your library
Just started with the app. Very user friendly and gives you clear overview of your book library in various views, along with some other characteristics of each of your books.

Accurate and user-friendly
This is an excellent app that provided me with the means to create a decent inventory of a small school library. It is very accurate and user-friendly and I am able to create new titles, link existing ISBN's and access my numbers instantly. Highly recommended.

We have catalogued our full school library this year and found the Connect platform to be very useful. Our favorite feature is the picture of the cover of the books. Teachers can quickly identify what they are looking for from our printed index. We're excited for our library to grow.

Great Tool, Easy to Use, Cross Platform!!
Love this app! I’ve been using it for several years and it just gets better and better. I volunteer at the Friends of the Poway Library Bookstore, and recommend it regularly to patrons. Like it so much I also bought licenses for their Movie App which I also love! Running both on my PC, iPad and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phone and they sync flawlessly. Updates are quick and easy and support is really impressive. I wish more Apps worked this well and had this level of support!

Works like a charm!
We use this as the card catalog for our retirement community library.

Does it all. Cover to Cover
I had tried a few catalogue apps for my book collection. Most were okay, but they didn’t do everything I wanted, or they were too difficult to manoeuvre through, or just too expensive. Then one day, about 7 or 8 years ago, the one I was using just quit working. I couldn’t even get into it to export what I had already entered in. I went online and found out that it was done, no longer supported, and no questions would be answered. So I went online and started looking. It didn’t take long. I found a reference to Book Collector. This was an app that I could download and it looked like it would everything that I wanted. It was a reasonable price, and so I decided to give it a try.
FABULOUS ! FABULOUS ! FABULOUS ! It does everything I need, and does it well, and smoothly, and with over 3500 books on my shelves, that’s important. Since then I have switched to their cloud service, CLZ Books. I no longer have to use my memory space. I just log in, make entries, deletions or changes and it’s done. The price is still very reasonable. This is the best book cataloguing service of any I have ever used. They also offer apps or cloud service for collectors of Movies, Music, Comics and Games. This team of developers has done and continues to an outstanding job. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who has a library to keep track of.

Like a Personal librarian, great support!
I have been in the process of moving house and clearing out a family storage unit, thrilled with the books I’m finding, remembering and hoping to organize them all into a great library. I was seriously thinking of hiring a librarian to help me with all this when I found this fabulous app. I am able to seamlessly add volumes by isbn numbers and have manually added obscure volumes, photographing the covers and noting their particular histories.
I have been so eager with the newly discovered app, trying to get up to speed, I quickly asked support for some features that I subsequently discovered on my own. I was pleased to get an equally quick answer to my query— how to print out my lists— and can’t wait to do more. I may still hire someone to help me but with this app I am assured that even a student will be able to do a thorough, professional organizing of my library.
Bravo! Six stars!

I am trying to catalog my husband’s library of about 2500 textbooks in different languages. I searched all over the web and finally came upon CLZ. This sounded just like what I needed. I emailed them to inquire about this and got a positive answer in less than 24 hours. We bought the app and I started to catalog all the books. By now I have entered about 1150 and moved to the cloud. Every time I had a question I got an answer in less than 24 hours. Their support staff is excellent. This is really a great app and I couldn’t be happier with it. I highly recommend it to anyone who tries to catalog their libraries.

Easy to use, extremely detailed app that allows me to keep my library nice and organized... not to mention, keeping me from buying the same book more than once. Highly recommended. A++

I love this app
It helps me to keep my library in order and keeps me from buying the same book twice. I want to give a special shout out to Alwin in support for working with me to fix some issues that I had. Great support and great app!!

I am a professional library worker and this app holds its own against our system. Love the way you can adapt it to your own individual needs.

Love this app!
I use CLZ books to manage my quilt books library
. It helps me avoid buying duplicates which is good for my wallet. It’s also easy to add new purchases to the collection. Thank you, CLZ, for keeping me organized!!

Best App and Customer Service App Ever!!!!
I am most pleased to post a review for the CLZ Book App. I truly love this app. I searched for a cataloguing library app
for years to catalog my book library
. For years, I kept a paper copy of my books, but found this to be ineffective due to the fact that my collection over the past twenty-five years had grown by the thousands. But luckily, I kept searching and found the CLZ Book App. A couple of years ago, I read all of the reviews and convinced myself to purchase the app. Over the past couple of years, I have spent so much money on apps that promise, but do not deliver. But after purchasing this app, I can honestly say that my faith was restored. This is the BEST app for developing and maintaining
It’s easy to input the information about books and the developers are constantly making changes to make this the best book cataloguing app ever. In the couple of years that I have used this app, I have found the developers are very responsive and responded quickly whenever I had an issue.
If you are looking for an app to develop your library, the CLZ Book App is the answer. I highly recommend this app and give it a 5. If I could, I would give it a 5+++++.

Perfect for our Clubhouse library
Love this app. It works perfectly for our community library of more than 5,300 books
. Our card catalog used to be 3x5 index cards that were never updated regularly, so CLZ Books really helps to keep track of what we have.

A spectacular piece of software
A spectacular piece of software that's updated regularly and with great awareness of user needs. Constantly improving on an already best-in-category app. Easily the one piece of mobile library software
worth the cost...Amazing developer, superb app!

The best app on my phone
This is maybe the best app on my phone. I used to have a real problem with accidentally buying books I already owned, but now all I need to do when I'm out book shopping is just check my catalog in the app if I'm ever unsure. Naturally you get the most out of its features when it's linked to the CLZ programme on your computer, but I'm sure it would work perfectly for someone just using the app. I'm a library professional, and I feel like CLZ perfectly blends easy use and robust features.

I have been collecting books
for what feels like forever. I started using Collectorz book collector back in 2000 on a Compaq iPaq to keep track of my books, after buying too many duplicate copies of boo I already owned. Since then I have changed platforms over the years - Windows and Mac for desktop, Android and now CLZ Books for iOS.
I have upgraded for each new release because of how happy I have been with the app. It allows me to instantly verify if I already have a book in my library when I am out shopping. It also helps me when I try to locate a particular book in my library by filling in the location with information on which room/bookshelf it’s located in.
I’ve been telling all my book collecting friends about it and convinced a few to give it a try.
My advice: try it, you’ll like it.

I love this app. Great way to keep up with my library. I use it while book shopping so that I don't purchase something that is currently in my library.

Fantastic software for bookaholics - and clubs
I have used the book cataloging software
for many years to catalogue the many (many) books we have stored in numbered boxes and bags in our loft. I had also catalogued the books belonging to our local Embroidery group.
We wanted to make full use of the group’s books during lockdown and with the superb help of the Collectorz support team, we set up a separate Library and included, on separate sheets, books belonging to members who were willing to loan them out. Until face-to-face meetings resume, we have an ad hoc doorstep delivery system in place, supported by the Loan facility within the software.
The CLZ Barry scanner enables members to scan the barcodes of books they are willing to loan and email the ISBN numbers directly from the App to our Librarian for logging. Subject to Covid restrictions, we can work directly with any member who has as many books as me, to load the books directly.
It is particularly helpful to be able to sort on technique, subject etc as well as author and title.
The software works and the support team are easy to contact and really helpful. Highly recommended!

Best book catalogging tool
Love this app for keeping my library of books
on record and well organized. No more duplicates which can be frustrating as well as expensive. I appreciate knowing my database is available to me on my PC and cell phone via the cloud, with no worries about maximum size. I’ve had this software for years and have enjoyed watching the developers continue to expand and improve its capabilities and design for ease of use. They’re always available and very prompt with functional as well as technical issues. I look forward to the future knowing we can rely on their growth and continuance.

I have been hand cataloging and boxing up my boyfriend’s library for weeks now. There has to be at least a thousand books, bookshelves in every room. I have found many duplicates because he doesn’t recall which ones he has already bought. Now that I have the CLZ app I am saving so much time and he’ll never buy another duplicate! Loving it!
March 24, 2021
No more duplicates
Love, love the ability to view what books we have in our library. Rarely do we duplicate.

I started using book collectorz years ago, probably 10 at least maybe more. I was using the PC desktop version until last year when my computer had a major meltdown. It took me a while but I decided to get an iPad and finally downloaded the mobile version of book collectorz. I figured I would have to redo my entire catalog all over again and I had tons of information. This was the best program I had found, hands down, and I loved updating my catalog.
To my surprise, I found my catalog in CLZ. I don’t have to redo every single book, yay! At the time my library was 6771 books. It was a daunting task to think of having to redo it. I’m thrilled I don’t and only have to add the new books. I love this program. It’s got so much functionality, easy to use, and looks good while doing it!
I recommend this program over anything else you could ever find.

Very Powerful App
We are using this app to catalog our church library
. I tried several apps and this is, by far, the most powerful. I’ve been using it for a week and have already cataloged over 1,500 books. In a week they have already had a few updates, just adding little helpful touches. I love that I will be able to post a link to the books in the cloud so people can see what books are available. They can sort and search without actually changing the database. I can even download a .csv file to print labels for all the books. Very responsive customer service! Thanks!

I had this fun experience of attending a used book sale today where every book was 50 cents. I got my pile together, went off in a corner and entered them all into CLZ. In one batch I could add the specifics of the 50 cent price, the library sale I bought them at and the date.
