To lend a book to someone, scan it (or open it from the list), press "Lend book" and select your friend. When a month has passed, you will get a notification to remind you where the book is. If you have a book you want to recommend to a friend, you can do that over SMS, e-mail or Facebook etc.
You can organize your books into collections, e.g. "Favorites", "Reading now" or whatever tickles your fancy.
Finding more books is trivial. You can search for books by the same author or publisher, or books dealing with the same subject, all without typing a single character. Saving any of the matches to your phone is just one tap away.
You can export books in two ways, either as a spreadsheet—which you can send to anyone—or to Google Docs². The spreadsheet is a CSV (Comma-separated values) file that you can open in any spreadsheet program. You can also send the file to other BooksApp users, both Android and iPhone users.
Importing books is done by opening a CSV file from an e-mail or from the file manager.
BooksApp exists for iPhone as well, see www.books-app.com for more information.
Happy book organization! :-)

I adore the bar scan . Overall fantastic the only dislike is it won't let you remove an inaccurate book lend. Still great!

Outstanding app. If you have a large library, it's indispensible. Highly recommended. Samsung Galaxy 4S.

Amazing! A must for book lovers. Scanner gets a little buggy at times. Have to fc & restart, but well worth it! Samsung Galaxy S Froyo 2.2 (rooted)

Just input my 512th book, 2000 to go. Great for big libraries. Be sure to scan the inside cover on mass market paperbacks, not the back.

My local library does not have a book tracking feature for their users. This app allows me to have a detailed listing of the titles I have read.

This is the most awsome way to document your library. I love it. And you put them in collections and mark which ones you read and group series toget
Great app! Lets you scan multiple codes instead of one at a time. Love it!

Helps keep track of my library and gives me an idea of what I already have read when I am at library or bookstore.

One way this app sorts books is according to subject. I have many books. Now I can do subject matter studies using my own books.
