  • Loving it for my collection

    By Yeti1775
    Loving it for my collection. My only complaint is trying to get it to recognize older pre 90’s ISBN’s.
  • Wow....

    By donwebster
    We have close to 800 books in our library and this is so great...had considered using a spreadsheet or FileMaker...but this...has made my week.
  • BookBuddy Pro

    I’ve just started using BookBuddy Pro. It is extremely easy to use. I’ve not found any problems that have held me back. I would like to suggest an add by ISBN. But, I love this app. You can backup to the cloud and other places. You can even write it out to a CSV file. Only another 5000 books to go.

    I liked it.
  • Does not sync between devices

    By Texas speech girl
    This app has some nice features, but does not sync between devices as promised. Don’t waste your money.
  • So far, so great!

    By GuysGirlKnits
    I was pretty excited to find out this app exists because I’ve been longing for a tool to catalog our home library for a long time. We homeschool and have a LOT of books. I’ve already entered over 400 books and it’s been working really well except for one or two little crashes. No huge deal. My friend is also using this app so we can more easily find out what one another has. My one wish is that she and I could access each other’s libraries.
  • Fabulous!!

    By Beachdaisy
    This app is nearly perfect in organizing books among my children, students and myself! I love the options of organizing my books into professional, personal, and children categories; I love that I get the option to add more categories or edit the ones already provided. I also LOVE the loaned out option; you can assign a book as loaned out/returned. I would give this app five stars if I could access my library online, but also if the loaned out option would be more streamlined, such as, you could click on "loaned out" and it would automatically assign the current date. It just requires too much clicking to assign a book as "loaned out" and then you have to toggle to the current date. I wish you could just scan or click a book and it would automatically assign it as loaned out and include that day's date, maybe provide a default option in settings? Hopefully, those features will be added later. I plan on keeping this app and hope these changes can be made or that some other developer will include these options. Until then, it's the best library app out there!
  • The best app of its kind!

    By UsborneAmy
    I just used BookBuddy for five minutes and I am in LOVE! It is so easy to use, and you can try it for free up to 50 books. I’ll definitely be going to Pro version when I get to book 51. It’s only five bucks! Plus, I can feel great that all my data will be safely backed up in my Dropbox. I am over the moon! Oh, and EVERYTHING can easily be done from my iPad or iPhone. I am seriously excited over entering just one book in there to try it. What took five minutes was trying to stand still long enough to show my family my new lovely thing!
  • Brings organization to something hard to organize.

    By NorthDakota999
    This app has been useful in organizing my reading collection. I mostly read professional or work-related books and lend to co-workers. I have a collection that’s half on my Kindle and half read books, with about 30% that overlap. I can track who has what, take notes/comments (especially useful for books not on Kindle). Having a better way to add Kindle items would be useful, as well as tracking those items. I’m using the tags feature. There is a format; however, for the 30% overlap, this was not working well.
  • Love this app

    By booknerd 2
    I really enjoy this app. It is truly a great way to organize my home library (I have over 1000) books. The only complaint I have is it doesn’t or I am not sure how to have this available in both my iPad and I phone with all of my book information. The app contains a way to log books with locations and list books in series which I find amazingly useful.
