Lite version crippled
While the free "lite" version has most of the buttons that the full version does, nowhere does it say what the limits are. This became frustrating when trying to decide whether to purchase the full version. It seems (trial and error) that you can put in only 10 books, and the email export features instead quit the app completely (not even a polite "this feature only works in full version, would you like to upgrade?" message).

Highly unstable
I so wanted this app to work, but, mindful of a whole lot of 1-star ratings, I thought to give the lite version a try. I uploaded it to my iPad and immediately noticed that screen orientation does not adjust. No big deal. 3 books were pre-loaded, so I deleted them. No problem. Then I added my first book by entering the author and tapping Import, then Search Autor/Title. After only a few seconds, the author's books appeared. I started going through them and marking about 15 titles I had. The app then made me go through each book individually and add a required genre, which was blank, then press the Save button. I'm wondering, if I had selected 30 titles, would I still have to add each one separately by tapping the Save button? Is this author-dependent? I have several hundred books... After I added my 4th book, the app froze. The screen was completely unresponsive. After exiting with the hardware Home button and re-entering, there was no data. I deleted immediately. Drat! I really wanted this app to work!

Doesn't allow to fully Try Before U Buy!
I find it fishy that there are features to this app that do not let you TRY them in the trial version. Kind of suspicious considering the paid version has several poor reviews that say it crashes alot... There are book database apps out there that do let you try out all the features and I think that is good business!
