This is one fantastic app! I am using it to bring order to my library, which is totally out of control. The app finds all of the details about each book from Google just from the title and sometimes the author, needing very little editing (pub. year, publisher, usually), then I can customize each listing by categories and genre, adding comments where appropriate. Best, I enter a location into the "Placement" field, so when I find the title, I can find the book! I am learning many interesting facts - I own multiple copies of some books; books are not published by just one publisher; books are published with more than one cover design or photograph; ISBNs are less than useful. The Google database is astounding. I collect old (19th century) science books and some just old books, such as a German prayer book from about 1850. I have some obscure textbooks. Google found them all, with but a couple of misfires (one a textbook used by a colleague in the 60s published by Kwik Kopy). Support from the app publisher was almost instant. I discovered a quirk in the app last night. This morning, after an exchange of a couple of emails, the support person verified my observation, then assured me that the programmers had fixed it and an update was to be submitted to Apple, expected to be approved after a week or so. All fields are easily editable, so when I decide that biographies ought to be shelved together, which was the objective anyway, I can edit the Placement field quickly. In addition, since I can list all of the biographies, I will know how much held space is needed.

How does this not have more raving reviews!?
Bibliophilia is exactly what I've been looking for to catalogue my (fledgling) personal library. Most importantly, it is functional. So far I'm loving the Google Books auto input and seamless (and cross-iDevice) Dropbox integration and backup. On top of that, the interface is aesthetically simple and elegant. If you own more than 20 books, download this app and you won't regret it.

Best library manager app
Elegant, very well designed, with functionality which matches less good looking apps. Nice surprise also to discover deeper functions I didn't know I needed! Now has a desktop version to sync via Dropbox which works perfectly.

Wonderfully simple.
An app like this has tremendous potential to be unwieldy and complex, but this one's neither: clearly a lot of thought has gone into overcoming potential hurdles. Scanner works great. Ability to export files - including a PDF listing and backup files - is a snap. Very happy with it!
