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 physical book collection no matter where you are and without the need for an Internet connection.
The app features three ways to add books to your library: you can manually enter them, search Google Books by title, author or ISBN, or just scan the barcodes. The neatest thing about the barcode scanning feature is that you can scan multiple books at a time, and then when finished, read over your list and add them 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.
BookBuddy 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.
