Here's what customers have said about CLZ Books:
"Wonderful App! Just used it for a day; loving it!"

"I'm a big fan of clz apps, but the new versions are just superb. I brought the PC version as a spur of the moment choice. But now with the ability to link via mobile, I'm in my element. The recent updates and better screen layout on the iPad have just made the best better!!"

"As a preacher this app is great for keeping track of which books are in my library. I can keep track of every feature imaginable and have no complaints other than the price but it is a great product and well worth it!"

"The mobile app accesory to Collectorz excellent book organizing database system. Tracks your Ebooks, too. Collectorz offers a complete suite of custom databases to help you organize your life. They are constantly improving their product and offer customer service and support that many other companies can only dream of. You may be able to find cheaper or even free aps that claim to do much of what Collectorz offers, but you won't find better value anywhere."

"This is a great app for tracking books owned and read and with the desktop version you have incredible database editing capabilities. I've tried a number of less expensive apps but none approach this one. User manuals are comprehensive and when I messed up my account by using two different email addresses, technical support fixed the problem in less than a day."

"This thing started out as a just very useful (and fun) tool and they refused to stop improving it. Combined with their SUPERB customer support, this app is every bibliophile's dream come true! I also own their desktop software and subscribe to their online database hosting. No complaints there, either."

"Excellent complément au logiciel, l'éditeur devrait ajouter la gestion des prêts."

"This book app is worth every cent (especially if it can prevent you from buying duplicates!) and with the new update has become increasingly user friendly. The design is very laid back and easy to use. Definantly the best book cataloguing app out their. One feature I would like seeing however is database totals so I can view the worth of my collection."

"Great for tracking the thousands of books I have."

"Dalla versione 2 fa un buon lavoro, permettendo di inserire libri dall'iPhone (leggendo il codice a barre o a mano), con buona parte dei dati contemplati dal programma per computer. La sincronizzazione è buona ma non perfetta (per esempio la versione per iOS sembra non capire alcuni segni diacritici). Nel complesso, molto utile."

"Excellent software, I have been using it for almost 10 years. Support for the product is also excellent and timing of replies to support requests are received in a timely manner, within 24 hours of it being sent. I have even received a reply within 2 hours, depending on the time differences between Australia and The Netherlands.
I strongly recommend this product and the other Collectorz products to anyone needing a way of cataloging their collections, whether it is books, music or movies as it is in my case."

"This is a great app for my book collection.
I love that you can sort it in so many ways including by location. I have several shelves all over the house and I can easily see where a book is just by sorting them in the app.
Even better, if you loan a book to someone, just add them as a location and you can keep track of where it went."

"This is a great! The best book indexing app out there by far. It is defiantly worth the $10. But just because it's the best doesn't mean it can't be better. As stated in a previous review, I think the app would be much more convenient if more of the fields provided on the computer version were accessible such as 'credits' or 'printing'.
Also, I think being able to add additional photos of the book would be helpful, especially when trying to determine if my copy is better than one I'm considering to buy. But, otherwise, defiantly worth the expenditure!
And, in case you're wondering, the computer program is also worth looking into too!"

"This app is perfect for keeping track of an ever expanding book collection! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking at library based apps.
The graphics, and choice of book cover displays, are exceptional. This app has been well thought out. Added features such as recording price of the books also helps me keep track of my expenditure. Brilliant!
If I could find any way to improve this app, I would include an option or link to a website that gives a full list of all books written by your selected author. This would really complete this app! Well Done all the same though"

"Over the past several days, I've been using this app to index my book collection. The barcode scanner works great! One helpful hint, especially for paperbacks more than a few years old: use the barcode inside the front cover, not on the back of the book, as that's the one you can count on for containing the ISBN.
If you want to do more than just upload your books, i.e. organize your books by genre, subject, or tag, it can be a bit tedious, as each book must be edited individually. However, if you just want to scan in your book collection and are happy with organization by author and the existing genre and subject labels that come with each electronic book record, you will be good to go.
I've not tried other book indexing apps, so I can't say how this might stack up against the competition. However, I like the simple interface. It's also nice to be able to organize and view my book collection in so many different ways.
Being able to flip through horizontally is the closest I've found to something online that simulates scanning my eyes along a shelf of books. This is a terrific feature!"

"I love how the app works. I am using it for regular books, audiobooks, and ebooks.
It's easy to add new books to your collection simply by scanning the barcode on the book or entering it's ISBN number. There is a ton of data that the app gets for the books you add, so you don't have to put the info in. "

"This app is a good stuff for manage my books on my bookcase."

"Visti i giudizi negativi delle versioni precedenti questa app deve essere stata rivoluzionata con la versione 2. Usando l'input dell'ISBN e la fotocamera dell'iphone si possono inserire in modo rapido ed efficace i libri. Il collegamento al database fà il resto, e se mancano delle info o le copertine, queste possono essere integrate alle informazioni scaricate. I record del database sono anche integrabili con un numero piu che sufficente di dati personali tra cui la data di lettura del libro e delle note. La considero pressoche perfetta per gestire la propria libreria. 5 stelle meritate."

"This app syncs with CLZ Books and it has literally saved me hundreds of $$$$.
Before I bought it I would go book hunting and end up with several that I already owned but could never remember. Now I pull out my app and never have to buy doubles again!!!!"
