Book Track is an iPhone, iPad, and Mac app that can track your books — both the ones you own and the ones you hope to own in the future.
Avid readers know how difficult it can be to keep tabs on a growing book collection and that's where Book Track comes into its own by making it quicker and easier than ever to track your reading. Not only can you track all of the books that you own, as well as how far you've read, but you can also keep a wishlist of the books that you'd like to pick up in the future. Whether a book is in your 'Library' or your 'Wishlist,' Book Track displays information and gorgeous cover art for all of them. While Book Track uses information from the internet, more obscure books can also be added manually, too.
Book Track is a free app and is limited to 20 books. A single in-app purchase unlocks support for unlimited books on Mac. A separate purchase is required to unlock the full iPhone and iPad app.
Book Track users can look forward to:
- A synchronized list of books and information — whether you save a book on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, it'll be synced across all devices. Both your Library and Wishlist will be synced seamlessly and automatically so you'll never lose a book again — or buy the same book twice because you forgot you already own it!
- Easy and comprehensive book organization — Every book you add to your Library can be marked as read, reading, or unread, with each book also supporting tags to help you find similar books throughout your collection. Book information like title, author, description, publisher, year of publication, genre, and even the description can also be edited to make your Library as accurate or personal as possible.
- Quote saving — Find a passage within a book that you want to save for later? Book Track can save your favorite quotes in one place so you can read them again later. You can even put them on your Home screen using a widget.
- All the stats, right where you'll see them — Book Track collects library and reading statistics and puts them right on your Home screen with gorgeous widgets. iPad users can enjoy an extra large widget with even more stats, too!
- Support for importing books from services like Goodreads, BookBuddy, Reading List, and more — It's never been easier to import your books from other apps and services so you don't have to start building your library all over again. Book collections can also be exported to PDF and CSV as well.
- Deep integration with iOS and macOS — Book Track includes support for the latest Apple features including Shortcuts and Siri, while Widgets can be used to put your favorite quotes right onto your Home screen.
- Privacy — Book Track doesn't collect any of your personal data and doesn't track you in any way. Books should be fun, not another reason to worry about your data privacy.
- Added the possibility to see the book list in the Statistics section
- Added the possibility to remove purchase and release date of the book
- Bug fixes and stability improvements

Ratings and Reviews
Good but could use some updates
I got this app because I liked the fact that I could track my reading progress. However, the previous app I have been using will show me my genres and sort all books by series or genre which I can't do here, I can only sort all books by title or release date. It would be nice if there were more sorting options besides the filter, I would like to see all of the books sorted by genre, not just title. I'd also love if I could customize the home page and be able to show the categories like genre and not just tags and location.
All in all I will probably use both apps, this one to track progress and the old one to organize further.
Exaclty the app I was looking for
Iwanted an application that I could use to inventory my Geneaolgy books. I have some books in print and others as PDF/ eBooks. I needed a visually pleasing way I could keep track of all of them in one place. I also needed a wish list section so that i could keep track of those rare out of print books I am hunting for. I'm excited I was able to find Book Track in the app store. The app meets those needs perfectly. I also really appreciate how beautiful this app was designed. Far to often when I working with genealogy programs they work well but leave a lot to be designed in the graphics department.
There are a couple bugs still being flushed out; like the year released field still not allowing input. With that being said, I purchased this app yesterday and there was already an update today adding the ISBN field as well as a few other improvemnts.
If you are looking for an app that is super affordable, has current developer support, is beautiful and easy to use, give Book Track a shot.
Looks polished, needs documentation
At first flush, this is a servicable app. I would say 5 stars for basic usage, which is likely what most people could use this for.
As a power-user, with a library of over 800 books, many of which are likely out of print, it is not intuitive to import from any system that isn't listed. CSV didn't work. So I docked one star for the lack of documentation or support for standard import file formats. it is simply implausible to manually add 800 books, or hope that Google/Amazon has those books listed.
For many though, this app may be exactly what you need, and for the price point, you can't go wrong.
