    "Nothing Special - Expensive"

    December 29, 2011   |   By Road-King

    Version: Delicious Library 2.7.5

    Pros

    Great website.
    Purchase and download online.

    Cons

    Doesn't sink with iPhone.
    Data not easy to share.

    Summary

    The website leads you to believe you can sink data to an iPhone. This is not the case and they blame amazon for this. Since this app is supposed to be written for Mac's I thought it would work better on mine. Wrong. I bought the app to sink to my iPhone so i would have the data with me in order to not double purchase dvd's. I paid $35.00 for the app. I spent about 7 or 8 hours loading data from 98 dvd's to find out I can't sink with an iPhone. It plainly tells you that in the help menu after you purchase. I went to iTunes and found an app for the iPhone for $2.99 and had the same dvd's scanned in an hour 45 min. I feel ripped off.

    "Upgrading Difficulties"

    September 02, 2010   |   By Brian McCarty

    Version: Delicious Library 2.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Delicious makes upgrading very difficult by putting the software on unbelievably slow and unreliable servers for distribution. This is a continual problem we've reported to them before, to no avail.

    "An Excellent Piece of Software"

    September 01, 2010   |   By tlsterry

    Version: Delicious Library 2.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is a superb programme, worth every penny of the very modest asking price. It's already paid for itself over and over, through saving me from purchasing CDs I already own. I never bothered about a separate scanner. The iMac built-in camera works just fine. Five stars from me!

    "A Great software. Fast, elegant and easy to use."

    August 26, 2009   |   By littlevoicez

    Version: Delicious Library 2.2

    Pros

    It feels like this software has been developed by the Apple Team. It perfectly integrates with your mac, and also allows to export your library to your Ipod, Iphone and Ipod Touch in a snap of fingers. Searching, is really Fast. Cool graphic.

    Cons

    I really have to think hard to find something I don't like about this software. Maybe internationalization can be extended to more countries including Italy (that would maybe make myself very happy :-)

    Summary

    I was able to add movies right away, just scanned with my Isight camera the codebar, and in a second the movie was there, populated with information about Year of production, Actor Names, Movie Poster and so on. more than a movie where not present in the database, but nothing easier than creating an entry manually.
    The way items are displayed in virtual shelves is awesome, it really makes it cool to show them to friends and family when you don't know which one to pick for the night. You can even publish your catalog online and have an online version always available. You can manage your loans easily thanks to its integration with address book and Ical. The Demo version allows you to upload a maximum of 25 items automatically. above that quantity, you would need to add them manually.
    Great Software, It's worth the price.

    Summary

    Delicious Library 2.x was already the best app of it's kind - But the new Version 2.1 blows everything away and is now definitely second to none ! I love the iPhone App - finally we can travel with our whole library of Books, CDs, Movies, Games in our pocket - lovely :-) ...and we've got all this nice extra features - Thank You Guys - Delicious Library rocks !

    "EPIC FAIL"

    June 13, 2009   |   By stevie d.

    Version: Delicious Library 2.1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I would not recommend this product. This was an impulse buy and it has been a disappointment. I really hope the developers work this out. I paid for the original App then I was ignorant enough to spend the money to upgrade to the 2nd version. I'm not a developer. I am certain alot of work goes into making these applications. My suggestion would be put more time into and make it work right or kill it altogether and stop taking money from people for a very sub par flashy application. It wants to be a very big, very great application. I'll give you credit for thinking big but you really need to get it sorted out. It takes forever to load. I literally launch it and leave the room to make a cup of tea. This is normal behavior and something I've learned to live w/ because I don't want to tell myself I really just blew 40 bucks on this mess. Once it gets going and you think its going to surprise you and work. You try to add anything to your list of movies, books, gadgets...and it FAILS. Locks up and takes a ****. I'm sorry I bought this application and I would hope the developer would be big enough to fix it or just take it down. Good luck guys. I'm sure there is alot of sweat and hours in this but it needs to be fixed and please don't charge everyone again for an update that makes it actually do what we all paid for it to do... work.

    What's new in version 2.5
    • Publishing
      • Fixed a crasher after configuring MobileMe and publishing. Me am stupid.
      • Fixed crasher in configuring FTP sites. Yes, another one.
      • Fixed a memory leak creating images when publishing collections to the web, which made largish collections slow down the machine, run out of memory, and then crash during publishing. There's a theme, huh?
      • Recycle memory more efficiently when publishing collections, so very large collections (14,000+ items) now can publish without slowing down, running out of memory, and crashing. Because programming is hard.
      • We now filter errant control characters out of the data we publish, because sometimes our data providers have extra garbage in their descriptions, and that would end up blocking publishing because it generated invalid HTML, which threw an internal error.
      • Fixed a crasher in publishing if there was a warning the HTML generated that wasn't fatal. I don't know if this ever happened in real life, but, hey, less ways to crash is good.
      • We now update our publishing progress HUD every 10 items instead of every page, so you can see what's going on if you have, say, 14,000 items. (Also, seriously, 14,000 items are going to take a LONG time to upload to your website.)
      • We now check to see if the user wants to cancel MUCH more often, so publishing doesn't appear to have hung the app. You can see we've really learned a lot from people with these huge collections.
      • Removed publishing to iWeb, because iWeb is a private format, and we thought we understood it, but were wrong. We apologize. If you'd like to continue using the old buggy iWeb support, from Terminal you can re-enable support with "defaults write com.delicious-monster.library2 enableBuggyiWeb -bool true".
    • Bluetooth Scanners
      • Fixed a longstanding, very stupid bug of mine where when a customer first paired with a scanner it'd get hung up during connecting and the user would have to restart the app. (Subsequent uses of the scanner worked.) Also fixed bug where some unusual error conditions with the scanner wouldn't be handled.
      • Fixed a second bug of mine in pairing with scanners, where pairing could take a very long time if you had lots of Bluetooth devices around you.
      • Fixed a THIRD bug of mine in pairing with scanners, where pairing would appear to fail on 10.5 systems (although it would actually succeed if you re-launched the app).
      • Worked around an Apple Bluetooth bug where when if a Bluetooth scanner fell asleep (after a minute) we wouldn't be able to connect again until you restarted Delicious Library. (Filed as Apple rdar://problem/8018727)
      • Worked around a second, DIFFERENT Apple Bluetooth bug where when if a Bluetooth scanner fell asleep (after a minute) we wouldn't be able to connect again until you restarted Delicious Library.
      • Clarify wording on connection panel that the scanner just fell asleep, and it's not broken. Lots of people seem to hate that the RoV scanner falls asleep after a minute of inactivity, but if it didn't your batteries would burn out REALLY fast.
    • Importing / Exporting
      • Fixed two crashers around parsing invalid files when importing.
      • We now tell the user if we don't understand her file at all on import, which is a nice thing to do, I think.
      • Fixed a crasher on the export pane.
      • Don't show multiple items as selected on the export Excel popup.
      • Add a newline after the final item when exporting as text.
      • Fixed memory leak in old (currently unsupported) iPhone syncing code.
    • Backup / Restore
      • Fixed a bug where if you restore from a backup certain seemingly unrelated operations will crash the app much later (eg, typing in the search field or even just quitting the app).
      • Fixed crasher when changing "Store loans in iCal" preference after a restore.
    • Add Blank Items
      • Our newest programmer (we're up to TWO now) fixed his first crasher, which happened sometimes when adding a blank item to a user shelf in response to a scanned item not being found on the net. (I should mention he's also fixed like half the other issues on this list, but this was the first one.)
      • Fix bug where you can't use the "Choose File..." popup to associate a file with a new blank item you've inserted.
    • Friends
      • Fixed a crasher when loading a friend's library, either under "Sharing" or if you have a friend whose library URL you've entered.
      • Fixed a 10.6-only crasher when adding a friend, due to a new bug in "NSOperation."
      • Upped the timeout when looking up friends' libraries, since 10 seconds isn't enough for some servers.
      • Very small friend libraries would never load before due to a silly bug.
      • We check the last modified date of friends' libraries before we re-load them, so you don't have to wait and wait every time you launch Delicious Library.
    • Re-enabled the ability to E-mail an item to a friend, thanks to Brent Simmons and no thanks to Cocoa's very lacking support for sending rich e-mail.
    • Fixed crasher if we tried to display an item from iTunes whose file was < 255 characters long.
    • People using non-Gregorian calendars (eg, Persian) can now look up items from the net successfully.
    • Fixed up HUD progress panel animation on 10.6, so it's not blurry and animates again.
    • Fixed uncommon crasher plaguing some customers where they couldn't launch the app due to loans and iCal getting out of sync (the "100 times" bug).
    • Dragging lots of items (say, 2000) could be VERY slow before, and potentially would even run out of memory. This is now fast and safe.
    • Tweaked interface with Amazon so more items from lawn & garden scan correctly.
    • When scanning using the iSight on a late-2009 iMac, we dim the monitor, as monitor glare made scanning harder. We are continuing to work on scanning on these iMacs, as their cameras are problematic, but we're confident we'll have a really good solution soon.
    • Worked around a bug (on admittedly private CoreAnimation API we were wrongly using) on 10.5 where when a new item loaded in sometimes it'd leave a big graphic smear down the screen. (10.6 users unaffected - we use the real API now.)
    • We are now much more efficient about the number of lookups we do on Amazon per item scanned. This lowers your network traffic and makes lookups faster, plus it makes Amazon happier with us.
    • Patch around one of the places where the app will crash if the database is corrupted for an item, so now it'll just silently recover and go on with its life.
    • Fix an uncommon crasher in the speech recognizer, where Apple's code will crash if speech recognition is turned off while a word is still be interpreted.
