In an attempt to ensure everyone in the world has their book collection properly tracked and managed (or at the very least, a fair portion of our readers!), AppAdvice has once again teamed up with Kimico in order to offer you a chance to win one of 20 promo codes for BookBuddy ($4.99) for iPhone and iPod touch.
BookBuddy is a dream come true for any iPhone- or iPod touch-toting book lover. It allows you to keep track of and manage your entire book collection no matter where you are and without the need for an Internet connection.
The app, as of mid-January, features three ways to add books to your library: You can manually enter them, search Google Books by title, author or ISBN, or simply scan the barcodes. The neatest thing about the new barcode scanning feature is that you can scan multiple books at a time, and then when finished, read over your list and add them all to your library all at once. You can then rate your books, star the authors, choose the status, and add notes if necessary.
Books can be placed into custom categories so you can easily find and keep track of them. If you have a huge library, you can also just search for the one you want instead.
The app also provides quick access to a personal book wish list, the ability to view a book’s webpage, and the ability to send recommendations to friends via email or share them on Twitter or Facebook. It includes a backup option via Dropbox as well, so you’ll never have to worry about adding your books all over again.
To have a chance at winning one of eight BookBuddy promo codes, simply hit that blue tweet button near the bottom of this page or retweet this post from your favorite Twitter app before 11:59 PM PST tonight (Feb. 16). We will then search the Twitterverse for all of the retweets and randomly choose our lucky winners. The winners will be notified via Twitter, so please be sure to follow us so we can send you your promo code via a direct message.
Non-Twitter users and those of you who want to increase your odds of winning can simply leave a relevant comment below before 11:59 PM PDT tonight to have a chance at winning one of the other 12 promo codes.
Feel free to participate in the giveaway via either or both methods. Only one entry per person per method is allowed, totaling up to two entries per person if using both.
