We've once again teamed up with Kimico in order to offer you a chance to win a copy of BookBuddy Pro ($4.99) for iPhone and iPod touch. The e-book has certainly brought extra convenience to readers, requiring very little effort to store and manage. However, the concept of a digital library is no help to people who aren’t fans of snuggling up with a tablet and turning digital pages or already have plenty of previously read and frequently enjoyed physical books. Whether for personal or professional, relaxation or reference, BookBuddy comprises the features to keep your entire physical collection of literature in check and accounted for. In fact, the app doesn't only provide efficient logging, including details consisting of author and publisher to dimensions and weight, it also allows ratings, custom filing, as well as reading and lending status. Obviously, cataloging physical books requires notably more effort than your e-book reader maintained library, but Kimico makes the process as streamlined as possible. To add books in any section, just tap on the “+” icon in the top-right. If the book is readily available, a barcode scan is probably the quickest method. Better yet, you can do it one at a time or scan in multiples and make the final edits and confirmations afterward. Another method of input is performing a keyword search of the Google Books database. When neither of those techniques produces usable results, there’s always the third mechanism, manual entry. For added convenience, the app incorporates a utilities area to quickly and easily import, export, and even print the entire book catalog. Simply link a Dropbox account, something many of us already have, and execute a few taps. In addition to its own created catalogs, BookBuddy is compatible with files created by Google Books, GoodReads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, and Anobii.
