Readerware for Mac includes a powerful and comprehensive relational database, but its tedious data-entry process may prove cumbersome to book, music, and video collectors.

Prior to installation, we mounted the DMG file and noticed that Readerware for Mac consists of three standalone applications--one for books, one for music, and one for video. Installation was an easy drag and drop into the Applications folder, and setup was as easy as giving a name to the database file. We were entering data within minutes. With books, it's just a matter of entering ISBNs in batches, and then having the software download all relevant information. The process is the same for music or videos, using UPC codes, instead. There's an option to scan each item with a bar code reader, which left us wondering why we couldn't use the camera that's built into most modern Macs, instead. Though bar code readers aren't expensive, we felt that adding this feature makes so much sense. Once entered, the application connects with a server and downloads all the relevant information, populating as many data fields as it gets. Each entry can be further edited to note location, notes, keywords, condition, and a host of other attributes, each one searchable.

Readerware for Mac does exactly what you would expect from a database, and does it well. This application is recommended for independent shopkeepers and serious media collectors.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Readerware for Mac 3.30.
