Adding a new book

Select "New" in the upper right hand corner to add a new book.

There are three options to add a new book (unless Input Method has been changed under Settings).



Once you have entered a title, author, and/or isbn, you can press the search (magnifying glass) button to look up possible matches via Google's Book Search. A title is required before the book can be saved to your database.

If you select "Cancel" before your changes have been saved, you will be prompted to save or discard your changes before returning to the previous screen.

The camera icon will give you options to add a cover image from your library or (if you have a camera on your device) will allow you to take a picture.

It is also possible to use the ISBN Scanner by selecting ISBN and pressing "ISBN Reader."


Search Form

Enter an ISBN/ASIN or a title/author.  After pressing the search button, a screen will appear to allow you to select the book you wish to add.  If you wish to select multiple books at a time, please use the author interface.


ISBN Scanner

A scanner (based on your Scanner Settings) will open and allow you to scan the ISBN/EAN code on your book.  UPC codes can not be used to identify a unique record.  Paperback books often have EAN codes on the inside cover.  If "Batch Scanning" is turned on, the scanner will continue until you press DONE.  Once the scans are complete, the search will automatically be performed.
