Ratings and Reviews
Great for large data bases
I have a fairly large data base and Book Crawler seems to handle it just fine. I sometimes have trouble backing it up to Dropbox as it does seem to take an extremely long time, as it really never says completed but it has backed up.
Hope to continue using this app as the systems for Apple upgrade.
Like the features that show I own the book or gave read the book. It has saved me several times from purchasing and me that I have already.
Most Powerful Book Database App!
I love that Book Crawler is not only an easy to use book database app for everyday use, but it really shines for those who require advanced searching and sorting, I think, based on a Google search, that even libraries use it! It’s very name “Crawler” reminds me of the database search term “metacrawler”, which is accurate, in that this app provides public library-level search and sort capabilities to expertly navigate your database for those who have large multi-genre collections and past reads. Speaking of libraries, I also love that it can search local libraries for hard to find books and let you know if they are available. That has saved me lots of drive time! It can also show Goodreads reviews for books, though I don’t really use that. Overall, Excellent book database app for novice and expert alike! Highly Recommended!
Exceedingly handy to keep track of books and avoid buying duplicates
I’ve been using this app for years with a very large library of books. Finding books by title or books by author is very convenient. Being able to keep a backup in Dropbox is very useful to avoid data loss.
The most convenient change would be for the database on my iPhone to synchronize with the Dropbox file rather than requiring backups which take a long time and seem to be wasteful of data transmission requirements. A synchronized database would allow the database to be kept current on multiple devices rather than requiring multiple uploads and downloads.
