    "Brilliant tools for all your books"

    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.

    "Easy, customizable, complete"

    March 08, 2010   |   By CyberCrone4

    Version: All My Books 1.9 build 1117

    Pros

    All you enter is the ISBN and the program goes out and brings back all the details about the book from an Internet source. Saves a LOT of data entry! Lots of room to add your own notes and comments about the book. And you can add your own fields!

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    An exceptional piece of programming by a company that is comprised of only three people. When I found All My Books I was in the process of designing my own using Alpha Five. For me, the ability to add your own fields is the key star feature and has made the design of my own personal library program unnecessary.

    Pros
