Scan UPCs and EANs into Delicious Library
Delicious Scanner is a companion app to Delicious Library 3 for macOS that scans UPC and EAN barcodes and sends them to your Mac.
If you don’t own Delicious Library, you can still scan in barcodes and export them by clicking on the 'Share' button in the upper-right of the screen.
- Pairs much more easily with Delicious Library on the Mac.
- New barcode scanner algorithm is much more responsive.
- Updated for modern phones, modern iOS.
- Dark mode enabled — not clear why or how you'd scan things in the dark, but you do you.
- Added easy-to-find button for exporting barcodes to files / Notes / other machines.
Ratings and Reviews
Scanner is fast and makes short work but has problems.
I had a problem at first with scanning always returning an error. It turns out that I had to update the desktop app that my phone was paired with, but the way the error is returned, it felt like the phone app was having the error. I’ve also seen some scans come back with the wrong items (as others have reported).
I don’t understand after all this time, why DL3’s library info cannot be replicated in the scanner app or a separate companion app for iOS.
Seems like an incomplete solution
All you can do is scan in (or type in) the ISBN number for an item - everything else has to be done back on the macOS app. About 30% of the books I scanned with this app came back with the wrong title looked up, and I couldn’t edit or change them on the iOS app - all I could do was delete them. I finally dug out an explanation on the DL3 support forum - it has to do with the type of barcodes used on some books. If you are using the trial version of Delicious Lib 3 on your Mac, this app stops working without any error message or indication of why it stopped after you enter 25 books. So you have to bop back and forth from the iPhone app to the Mac app during the entry process to keep things going. All in all, it’s a thin veneer of functionality on top of DL3 (which is itself getting long in the tooth).
Better than a hand scanner
I've been using Delicious 2 for years to maintain a list of thousands of books, music, video games and movies we own. Upgraded to Delicious 3 and I've been able to check in / verify our library so much faster with this app.
I'd gladly pay $20 for a "pro" version that kept a CSV file (or the like) synced between the phone and the Mac so when I'm out at the used books/CD/DVD store that I can confirm already have or "buy it" right there.
For now I export to Numbers, cleanup in Excel and keep a copy on my Dropbox.
