"Library - decent software - still needs help."

May 14, 2004  |  By trekbody

 |  Version: Library 2.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is software that is on the verge of being good, but is not yet there. I use it, and it is solid, but not well thought out. Examples - Movie ratings do not include NC-17, X, Not Rated, Approved (for older movies), nor any way to remove a rating once entered. When you use auto-entry by UPC code for a movie it gets the date the DVD was released (not the year the movie came out). It seems like color or black and white and stereo and Dolby could be boolean selections and not text entries. It would be nice if the auto entry picked up the studio, the movie rating and the genre too. Also there is only room for one person to give it a star rating (I would like to be able to track star-ratings from multiple people). Also missing is multiple libraries in each of the categories (so lets say I could keep the kid's list seperate from the adult films). This would also be good for VideoGames where I could break platforms out into different libraries, instead of one big group with Platform as a field. Would love to see comics added too. I fed some of this back to the company - would haved liked to have gotten a response, even a form letter, so I can't say I'm thrilled.

"Weak"

January 05, 2004  |  By gtallenjr

 |  Version: Library 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm a registered user and this version feels like a step backward. Among other things, it is pretty slow and worse, it made dupiicates of all my records. Also having several panes in which to enter information is much more troublesome than one with all the information. I reverted back to my previous version.

"Everything Shareware Should Be"

December 08, 2003  |  By autumnd_dotmac

 |  Version: Library 1.1.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is what shareware is all about, affordable software that works. I have been a registered user for around 6 months and have entered hundreds of books with no problems. The batch ISBN feature is a great time saver. Now if they would come out with a music cd version with batch auto entry as nice as this I would be happy to send some more cash.

"Fixed Pound Sterling problem?"

September 24, 2003  |  By sthomas41

 |  Version: Library 1.1.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I love this program and have registered. I noticed that an earlier message mentioned fixing a problem entering prices in pounds. Well, now all the prices I get are in pounds, and I can't put in dollars. Even ones that Do download in dollars, are in pounds after I save. Still, a great little program at a reasonable price.

"Nice app, responsive support"

July 31, 2003  |  By kpm

 |  Version: Library 1.1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a nice inexpensive app which makes it easy to enter books; I'm paying my seven year old 3 cents a book. :)

I would like to see the feature list improve... UI improvements for working with books in list view, multiple library files (for my bride, my kids, etc.), but overall this is a very nice start.

"It does what it says..."

July 11, 2003  |  By TheAppleDoctor

 |  Version: Library 1.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
... intuitively and well. It's just what I needed, and the ISBN lookup feature alone makes it worth the $10. There's not much documentation, but it's not needed - and I can't comment on support because once again, I didn't need it.

hip hip hooray for a great update!
this developer listens to his users.

i love the batch add. and auto highlight of the isbn field is great for multiple entries.
if only i could justify the dough for the scanner.
the web export is wonderful.

"Excellent Start!"

June 27, 2003  |  By tegster

 |  Version: Library 1.0b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Nice layout, very convenient data entry. Love the auto-retrieval of info based on the ISBN (wish there was a similar service for older books with only a Library of Congress catalog number).

Here are some improvements I would like to see added:

  • The ability to sort by column.
  • The ability to filter by genre, i.e, to show just those titles in Literature or History.
  • (Minor) The ability to hide the ratings column.
  • IMPORTANT - The ability to create and print a report (MLA format?).
  • A "multiple add" feature such that the add book dialog pops up again as soon as you save a title.

"I handy tool I didn't know I needed"

June 26, 2003  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: Library 1.0b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Until I had downloaded this software, more out of curiosity than necessity, I wasn't aware how much I'd enjoy and end up needing this tool to track my books. If you are a bibliophile like myself, this little tool is handy. Great interface, very user friendly. Great work!
