BooksWing

First and foremost, BooksWing has been redesigned with a more appealing and more stable interface.

Along with this new interface come new functions for sorting and filtering items in your bookshelf. Now you can sort books by category, title, and author. You can now also filter them according to whether they’re read or unread.

In addition, BooksWing’s new update introduces new sections, which you can access on the app’s sidebar.

There’s Timeline, which shows your doings in the app in reverse chronological order. There’s also Statistics, which shows a summary of your reading activity. And then there’s the wonderfully named Serendipity, which basically shows a note randomly picked from your collection.

The new version of BooksWing also includes a daily alarm, an icon badge indicating that the time is on, and better sharing with Facebook and other options.

Now also optimized for iPhone 5, BooksWing is available in the App Store for $2.99.
