Walkthrough

Adding new books is easy! Simply press the + button located in the upper-right corner and enter in the book's details. Only the title is required but the more you fill in the easier it is to find your book later. New books can be added whenever you are viewing the Groups, Sort, or Book Listing pages.

Sifting through your books is just as easy as adding them! Select a grouping of your books from the Group page. The number of books listed in each group is displayed in gray on the right side of each group. After selecting a group, you are provided with a handful of ways to sort your books. Selecting a sorting option will take you to the book list page. Only the books that match the group you selected are shown here and they will be in the selected sort order. Selecting any book on this page will allow you to view more detailed information about that book; as well as allow you to edit or delete it. You can go back at any time by pressing the appropriate button in the upper left corner.

Not impressed -- used FMtouch instead

:
After I downloaded this app I found out I needed an Intel Mac in order to use the backup capability. This was unaccepable since I have a non-intel Mac running Sys 10.5.8. I then found the FMtouch application that lets you use Filemaker databases on your ipod AND it's fully compatibly with making backups on my current Mac, AND I can edit the data base fields to suit my needs.

4/5 stars

Pretty good app overall

:
Have been looking for a way to keep track of books I've read and those I wish to read. This app has been very useful, but not perfect.
Would like a way to note when read, and also to be able to list by years as continue to add on. It would also be great to have a page to list those that would recommend to book club, etc.
