Book Scanner quickly scans book barcodes (ISBN) and finds the books on Apple Books or in other sources. Simply hold up a book’s barcode to iPhone’s camera and Book Scanner will scan it automatically. Book Scanner remembers your scanned books and you can buy them on Apple Books at your convenience.

Go Premium and gain access to a multitude of other sources, including Amazon Kindle, Google Books and the Norwegian National Library. You can choose the ordering within the sources yourself, creating a custom experience just for you. Use your favourite ebook-source and start digitising your library. The books can be bought easily through most of the sources.

Scanning book barcodes is faster than a manual search. Never forget the name of a good book again! Book Scanner is very useful in bookstores, while digitising your own library or in other places where good books can be found.

All namess are ttaken lol ,

Smud app

Rask å bruke, og finner stort sett alle bøker, både populære og sære 👌🏼 Forslag til ny feature: Å kunne skanne flere bøker uten å trykke tilbake, hvis man f.eks. skal scanne hele biblioteket sitt samtidig

Savner å få opp priser.

Jeg trenger en bok app som kan scane å fine priser. Hadde vært et bra verktøy får meg som selger brukt bøker.

Fungerer glimrende

Kjapp skanning med mulighet for eksport till LaTeX/BIBTEX referanse. Yppelig til akademisk arbeide.
