This Tuesday I'm bringing back my app talk. Today I bought ($1) and tried "Book Retriever". A book keeping app with the ability to check books out among a few other functions. It seemed simple, it's been pinned often, and the reviews seemed about equal to other similar apps.
My thoughts... it's so/so... but it's fairly new and growing.
If a book has a bar code it makes the process much simpler. (Many Scholastic books do not).
If the book does not have a bar code, you can search for the book. This works sometimes. I feel that this is a growing app database which would lead to its tendency to not have many books. Which leads to manually impute. I use my phone rather than iPad to scan, so typing in the ISBN/Title/Author (all 3 of these are necessary) if I have the AR level I put that in under grade level as well. More information can be put in, but with my library of books being quite large I've kept it to the bare minimum.
Is anyone else using a different app with similar or better results?
Now to the winners of my newest frame set. Thanks for all of the love ladies... I've picked 2 winners instead of just one :)
