The original top ranked book database in the app store!! iBookshelf is your personal portable library reference. A comprehensive book database, created and continuously maintained through extensive feedback from readers like you. Watch the demonstration video on YouTube! Search for iBookshelf. iBookshelf is NOT an eReader. You do not load actual books into this app. Instead, iBookshelf is designed to help you keep track of your personal book collection, whether your books are physical or digital copies. Books are displayed sorted by your preference. You can search for books in your library, and enter a "loan status" to remember who you loaned the book to or borrowed it from. A new book can be entered automatically (enter ISBN and remaining data is loaded from the internet) or manually. It will even tell you where you can buy the book and how much it costs and where you can find a library with the book! __________________________ ** Previously ranked #5 Paid App in the Books category in the US App store ** ** Listed in "The Nine Best iPhone Apps For Readers" - Associated Content ** ** Listed on CollegeDegrees.com as #1 in the 10 best iPad apps for students! ** "This application developed by Josh Pressnell is a must have for any book lover." ** 3.5 Mice in MacWorld ** __________________________ Features: - Supports large databases.

I develop and support my apps because I love the iPhone and iPad platform and I want my apps to be all that they can be. Think I can do something better? Would a slightly different or new capability increase your rating or motivate you to give me a positive review? Please email me. I'm always open to suggestions! **

    The app crashes whenever I try to add a single book to my library. DO NOT DOWNLOAD! APP IS A LEMON!
  • Excellent

    By KoreanDevil
    Keeps track of my library. Occasional bugs. Usually fixed promptly.
  • No barcode match

    By Lukeandsarah
    Not a single ISBN has matched the book I scan. Manual input is a pain. Not worth it.
  • Super useful

  • Latest update problems

    By Jrzy43
    Looks like I just received the latest update and now I cannot add books. The app only displays on about half the screen and the add items is missing. Some bug fixes!
  • Pretty good library app

    A couple of glitches when using my iPad, but really pretty good for tracking all my books.
  • Needs help

    By TCcake
    This app has a lot of issues. It doesn't list my current collection and has books I never added
  • Love this app

    By Chubby cub
    I am an avid reader. I read so much it was hard for me to keep track of books that I had already read. They change the covers of the books and I would read book or buy one I had read before. This app lets me keep track of all the books that I read. I check this app to see if I have read it before purchasing or borrowing from the library. Easy to look up books by author or title. Probably one of the best apps I have ever used.
