New Online: LibraryThing App For iOS is Now Available
Congrats to Tim Spalding and crew!
From the LibraryThing Blog:
This is our first version [of the iOS app], so we’ve limited it to doing the most basic functions you’ll need for cataloging on the go:
- Browse and search your library.
- Add books by scanning barcodes. Scanning to add is VERY FAST!
- Add books by searching.
- Browse and upload covers, using the iPhone camera.
- Do minor editing, such as changing collections and ratings. Major editing sends you to LibraryThing.
