"I use All My Books purely for audio books and it does a"

December 16, 2014  |  By kinverkid

 |  Version: All My Books 4.2 build 1224

Pros

I have a large collection of audio books which All My Books stores each book in a folder under the Authors name. It will then display the books in the order of your choice along with the cover and synopsis. I can then edit details or change the cover if I want. I then use it to transfer books I want to read next either direct to my device or to my cloud storage.

Cons

It can be a little slow when I add more books but I do have a large collection. The look is not as polished looking as some software but it does what it's supposed to and does it well.

Summary

I have been using the software for some time now and see no reason why I should not stick with it. I often edit the book before integrating it into my collection. I use Audiobook Cutter to split books into half hour chunks. Then I might use Tagscanner to attach other metadata like author, year, cover, etc. This is purely for my slight OCD when it comes to filing and is not necessary.

August 05, 2014  |  By runred

 |  Version: All My Books 4.0 build 1220

Pros

You can keep track of all your books whatever the format, identify what you have read and keeping track of series.

Cons

I could not fault the program - it did what is says it will do

Summary

A must for book fans, if you loan books you can identify who has them. Super easy to use. Definitely worth a try.

"The best software for its purpose. Easy to use. Great"

January 19, 2014  |  By Zurcher

 |  Version: All My Books 3.8 build 1214

Pros

Easy to use, fast and friendly support. I have done two disparate collections and am in the process of doing a third. Software is so good as to make others superfulous. Learning curve is fairly easy until advanced features are put into play.

Cons

Some advanced features need to be used carefully - again it is a process of the learning curve and when to use the feature.

Summary

Recommend to all. I have never come across better software and support. Other software manufacturers should take note.

"school collection"

August 13, 2013  |  By teachergerry

 |  Version: All My Books 3.5 build 1208

Pros

I have started a small school library. All my Books has been an excellent starting point for us. The coloful interface and tidy design is great.
It allows easy back up and I love the click of a button to get all the bibliographic information by adding the ISBN. It loads the cover picture and a synopsis.
The kids love it and so do I.

Cons

I would like to be able to add an accession number to each record.
I do not like to catalogue any title using the word THE .

Summary

I think its a great tool to use
Thanks

Geraldine

"Easy to use limited database search functions"

August 20, 2011  |  By ferretfingers

 |  Version: All My Books 2.5 build 1131

Pros

Easy to use and
Quick at pulling details from web

Cons

Unable to get all book covers.Clunky database,search returned just one record.Virtual bookshelf is cutesy but I suspect memory hogging.

Summary

I don't have a bar code scanner so used cnet freeware "Katanshi Bar Code reader" to extract bar codes using webcam and then pasted barcode into Allmybooks.Generally worked OK but didnt recognise the odd barcode.Would be nice if webcam barcode recognition was integrated into the program.If they sorted these hassles out has the makings of a fine program

Updated on Aug 20, 2011

Might have been bit harsh in my initial comments.I really like All my Books which has an attractive interface with great potential.Would be great if they included searches to other library sites such as Library of Congress if the initial Amazon search for book details didn't bring up anything.I hate typing!

"Handy, versatile, well thought out data handling."

February 07, 2011  |  By dvfdvf

 |  Version: All My Books 2.2 build 1124

Pros

Intuitive with handy features for collecting, sorting, and publishing data. Simple scanner interface and bookshelf features are nice. Amazon data base reference is great.

Cons

Search appears limited to alphabetical title. Author and title search of external databases yields clunky results - no date or edition info on redundant finds. No auto fill for LOC number on pre-isbn titles. Help function effective but needs polish.

Summary

A feature filled, well designed data manager for larger personal or mid-sized public collections. Easy entry of ISBN era volumes; older works require more work to input. Easy to keep track of loans after a minimal learning curve. Nice display and dissemination options for library data. Frequent updates and user input actively sought. For $40, this is a sleek library manager that while very good, has all the signs of getting better.
