"Excellent product"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

BookTracker is unique among all the personal library software programs that I've seen in its ability to track reading habits as well as book ownership. As someone who reads about 150 books a year (including rereads), I needed a program that understood 1) I don't own every book I read 2) I don't read every book I own and 3) I read many books more than once. It's well worth the $10 fee. The custom fields alone are worth the fee - they really make this a flexible and adaptible tool. I'm using the custom fields for categories, reading levels, etc.

I do have a wishlist for future updates.

  1. The group function is nice, but it would be nice to have "smart" groups, in the way that iTunes has "smart" playlists. That is, I wish I could set up some advanced filter that would automatically add all books read in 2005 to my 2005 group. Doing that sorting by hand does get a little tedious.
  2. An advanced search function -- one that allowed filtering by, say, last date read & genre -- would also be a nice add on.
  3. It would be nice to be able to set up a default library, so that one would open automatically when the application launched.
  4. Finally, the process of entering data is always going to be tedious. It would be nice if there was an option to put the custom fields on the main entry page. That way I wouldn't have to click between screens when entering data; I could just tab from field to field.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this product continues to develop!
