Great software
I’m a long-time user of Music Collector, thought I should finally catalog my book and music score library. That 7-day trial with Book Connect has made data entry much easier. Once I get my collection in, the mobile app will probably serve my purpose. We’ll see!
Thanks for the great software. Feeds my OCD challenges. — Dennis R. (USA) on Book Collector

Good App
Good app, finds almost all books via the bar code otherwise it can be added manually. Great asset to not buy books twice when your library grows and your cannot memorize each item. — duzbigalo (Germany) on CLZ Books

Very useful
I've started the trial for the cloud version and the desktop version to see which I prefer. I might end up using the cloud version but still keeping the app on my phone as well as it's just more user friendly when in a book shop to open and check my library list.
Honestly out of all the apps I've used this one has been the easiest to get used to, add books to and navigate. As I've now gotten too many books that fit in my apartment I've found that it will be very useful to keep catalogues of what's in storage, what's in the apartment and what I keep at my office and lend out. — Monique Gomez (Australia) on Book Collector

Great app, great team!
I have been using this app for at least four years. The use is intuitive, the acquisition system is quick and the database is extremely well-stocked. The cards have an incredible variety of data with high customization. Furthermore, the support in case of need has always been fast and decisive. I highly recommend it for those who want to keep their library in order. — MattiaLusetti8519 (Italy) on CLZ Books

Your library in your pocket
User friendly app to keep track of books, music, and more. Know what's in your media library and avoid duplicate purchases. You can even create a wish list for items to add to your library. Works on a desktop computer as well as a smart phone. — CB Youngblood on CLZ Books

Perfect to keep track of everything
Downloaded the trial and started adding books, upgraded to yearly subscription within 1/2 hour! Most of my library is packed away for a bigger house so this app is perfect to keep track of everything I have and don't have as I keep going with my collection. The book Nerd and organiser in me LOVES this app! — Lozzerella (USA) on CLZ Books

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.

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! — Mary Pimentel-Wheeler (USA) on Book Collector

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. — Sherlocked61 (USA) on CLZ Books

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. — Ad Kolsters on CLZ 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. — Stephan E on CLZ Books

School library
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. — Kari O'Connor (USA) on Book Collector

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! — Bob in Poway (USA) on CLZ Books

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. — Ti-Cat Matt (Canada) on CLZ Books

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! — intensia (USA) on CLZ Books

Textbook catalog
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. — ollldie on CLZ Books

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++ — Rodrigo Mendonça on CLZ Books

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!! — JCquilter on CLZ Books

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 a library.
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+++++. — miss BCAEA on CLZ Books
