Kimico Ltd. has just announced a major update for their BookBuddy app utilizing enhanced barcode scanning.
BookBuddy is a book management app for iPhone and iPad that enables users to catalog their books and periodicals, categorize them using tags they create, and sort by Title, Author, Genre, Rating or any other classification that would help them to find the right book for their need. The app has a fan following among teachers and individuals as it simplifies the process of finding, organizing, and quickly obtaining information on a publication.
BookBuddy provides a barcode scanner as its primary method of adding books into the user’s library. Previously, BookBuddy searched scanned barcodes against a single online database, and while this was effective in most cases there were some books that could not be found. The recent update has increased its compatibility with online databases and now searches the largest and world-leading bibliographic databases to bring book information to the user.
“We understand our audience and what they are searching for in a book manager,” says Mr. Yoash Adato, President and Founder of Kimico, Ltd. “This is why we wanted to expand the management functionality in such a way as to provide the most comprehensive search available for them. Users now have access to more information about books in their library, making it easier for them to quickly find what they need.”
The additional online databases also provide new information that previously wasn't available, allowing BookBuddy to automatically fill the “Dewey Decimal” and “Library of Congress” classification fields together with “OCLC Control Number” field.
Pricing and Availability:
BookBuddy is Free (with in-app purchases) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store.
