    "A great program with a great free iPhone App."

    May 19, 2012   |   By Walter_Jaegermann

    Version: Booxter 2.7.4

    Pros

    The combination of the program with the iPhone as a scanner of the ISBN-barcode is fabulous, it was the reason why I bought the program. Just pointing the iPhone to the barcode, the iPhone communicates with my Mac and puts the number into a "lookup" list. When done scanning, I had the program search some databases on the internet (the Dutch Royal Library and Bol.com the Netherlands. (as I live there) Within seconds, the basic information on the book is put into the program, with a picture of the cover in 85% of the cases also.
    Then I wanted to sync the program with my iPhone. This is were we first go to the cons and get back later to the pro's.

    If you just read the cons; good, here you are again. From here on everything works more than fine! An ideal sync with my iPhone, quick search, the right information. It is the program I have been looking for the last 10 years. It even is very simple to use the iPhone or HTML-export to put it somewhere into your website. (with ftp to the net)

    Cons

    I have been trying for more than 4 hours to get the program syncing with my iPhone. Due to the lack of specific documentation, this wouldn't work at first. After reconnecting my iPhone with my Mac, using bluetooth it still did not work. I thought, hmm... well maybe we need to reset the iPhone. (I don't do this very often and can imagine nobody does this often) and yes, there it was, the long expected library under the share-button.
    Also the way to put in a picture of the book-cover wasn't that clear. Couldn't find anything in the documentation. (again) The solution here was much more simple, just drag and drop the picture from my desktop to the book in 1-item-mode.

    Summary

    A great program, It delivered everything the info promised. However, it was really hard to get some of the features working, as the documentation is frankly said, very poor.
    Where the developer just needs to find a little more time to get the documentation in order. This would instantly remove the "bad" reviews on the internet and would add a lot of useability to an otherwise great program! Keep up the good work!
