Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Good, for the most part
I really do like this app. It’s a really handy way to keep track of your collection of media in an easy-to-find manner. I can also leave notes on certain items that let me know who is borrowing what. The ability to scan items instantly into my inventory saves a ton of time.
Some suggestions would be the ability to upload a picture to books that are entered manually, or so old they don’t have an ISBN and can’t be found in the database. Another thing that’s really annoying is whenever I change the content of something, after I do so, it scrolls all the way back up to the top of the list, making it so I have to scroll alllll the way down and find where I left off.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
