  • So excited for the possibilities!

    By Jlshimab
    I work in an elementary school and I have a pretty big collection of children’s books. When I learned about this app, I tried the free version and was very impressed! It was easy to scan multiple books at a time. I wish it were a little easier to add/erase tags. I know once I get my books cataloged, this will be such a huge time saver!
  • Love this app!!!

    By Bb4349
    This app is so easy to use. The best part is that it can be linked over multiple devices. Would recommend for anyone with their own personal library.
  • Exporting

    I love the app. But I am unable to export through email. Also is there account type thing you can make so if you delete the app on accident or get a new phone your books stay in it?
  • Very good

    By Reviewer 70
    Tracks books in all your formats. Would be a 5 but the search does not always find what is saved.
  • Best app in the world!!!

    By MaryannAtnip
    I've been trying to figure out how to catalog my books and stumbled across this app. Thank you God!!!
  • Just What I Needed

    By GreenVariety
    Very pleased, only thing that would make it better would be batch editing and if it populated from and synced with Goodreads.
  • An excellent app!

    By Buzz1126
    If you're looking for a way to organize your book library, I don't think you can find a better app than BookBuddy! Spend the five bucks and get the unlimited version. And once I finish fine-tuning it, I plan on getting MovieBuddy and MusicBuddy!
  • This one worked

    By hgtg42
    I searched App Store for Book Library apps—only saw several true book library apps. I tried several that were free or had in-app purchases (wasn’t going to pay for this kind of app without trying it first). Every one I tried gave me some kind of problem: couldn’t find the book, didn’t save the entry, didn’t save the cover photo I took, etc.., I tried this one before throwing in the towel and just going with a generic database app like Tap Forms (which I really like)... but lo and worked on everything I tried. Will definitely be upgrading. Good solid app.
  • Excellent for Book Organization

    By Abcd28!
    Very functional, flexible and versatile. Thank you for making such a helpful app. My only suggested improvement would be to have display options when looking at my library. I would love to see an app like this for recipes. Something simple and straightforward to organize my favorite recipes no matter where I get them from.
  • Really useful

    By Erinmichelle904
    This app is really useful for large and small libraries. I always have friends wanting to borrow books and finally I can do so without having to ask if they ever gave me back that book or not. Or that one friend who is always borrowing without asking and then claiming it's their book when you find it in the floorboard of their car, shame shame. One less thing to keep track of. Just let Book Buddy do it for you!
