Ratings and Reviews
easy to use & great to catalog growing collection
I love buying books and adding them to my collection. As my collection kept growing though it became difficult to remember all the books I already owned so that I didn’t purchase them again. So I tried several apps to catalog my books, but haven’t really loved one yet. I found Libib through a blog post by a book lover and decided to give it a try. At first glance it ticked a lot of the boxes that the other apps didn’t, such as a cute aesthetic and easy to use. I was able to scan my books super fast and have a count of how many I have.
Although I am liking Libib right now, I am still on the fence if this is going to become my book app. I really wish that instead of just having a list of the books that I have that it would show the cover of the book. Sometimes when I’m searching for a book I can recognize the cover a lot easier than having to read through all the titles. I wish there was an option for a list view or a library view. Book lovers love a good book aesthetic and we love admiring our book libraries and wish that Libib could add a virtual book library that looked like our real one.
Easy with excellent customer service
I’ve recently started to use this app to catalog my library. I really appreciate how quickly and efficiently I’m able to do this. Even with some of my older books that do not have a barcode on the back, I’m still able to easily enter the information manually. Not to mention, 5000 is quite a large number for us to be able to use it for free. A lot of other apps I’ve found has severely limited me. What really sold me on this app is their customer service. I had a question about using it and whenever I click on the “contact” button, it allowed me to send an email to somebody who sent me an email within an hour of receiving my request. After he answered my questions throughout the day, he took my suggestions as to how to make the app better. I would like to see a little bit of improvement on the next update about user interface and having the app portray the same visual as far as alphabetizing and groups that that web browser had, but the customer service and willingness to receive my suggestions over email makes me put them at five stars regardless. He said he would consider what I had said as a builder new update.
Highly recommended for personal collections
I had been wanting to catalog my growing book and record collection for quite a while. This year it was one of my New Years resolutions to finally get it done. Like most people, I started my project with a quick google and found Libib. I went with the free plan as my collection is not yet over 5,000 items and I wasn’t sure how long it would remain my highest priority. I downloaded the app and quickly realized it was much easier than I had thought. To add books you just scan (by it taking a photo) of the barcode on the back of the book. Instantly it will show a photo and the title of the book. I have a lot of antique books as well and those can be added manually by typing the Title, ISBN, Author, etc.
It would be nice if it had the ability to add a photo to the titles added manually, and also to utilize the check out system on the free platform, maybe with a limited number of items checked out at one time? I love to share books with friends, but it’s hard to remember who borrowed what.
TLDR; really easy to use. Would recommend to a friend.
