Review: Billiards for Mac offers an entertaining gaming experience

Better organize your physical book collection with this powerful app that enables you to quickly search titles in an online database.

Bookpedia for Mac allows you to organize and manage a large book collection more easily. Despite its basic and slightly dated interface, this iTunes-like app is easy to use and comes with fast book searching features. Its tracking features for borrowed books and handy wish list are two nice extra features you'll like. The app is not free, but you can test it and see if you like it before purchasing.

Bookpedia for Mac lets you add new books to the library, manually, or by searching for them online using keywords. The search completes quickly and features a lot of metadata, which can help you sort out your library more easily. The app runs smoothly, and when you select a particular book, cover art and additional information are displayed quickly without any lag, bugs, or glitches. In addition to cataloging features, this app also comes with a sub-menu that lists borrowed books, including when they are due, a helpful feature if you use the library often. We also liked the book wish list, which is not only convenient, but also easy to use.

Bookpedia for Mac lives up to its promise. If you have a large collection of owned and borrowed books, this app will help you organize them more thoroughly, by providing extensive metadata about each title. The interface could do with some improvements, but it's OK as it is. Love books? You'll like this app.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Bookpedia for Mac 5.1.8.
