    Questions about viewing Books in Book Crawler.


    When entering edit mode (upper right-hand corner), you will be able to delete books.

    Items listed in blue indicates the book has not been read conversely items in black indicate the item has been read.

    Books can be viewed in entirety or by a collection/tag (subset). Books can be sorted by title, main author, copyright, genre, rating, date read, own status, format, series, loan status, price, publisher, custom fields or collection (if applicable). The tab bar on the bottom screen provides you with the ability to switch between these views. Selecting "More" from the tab bar gives you the option to select from a sort method not initially visible. From the "More" screen select "Edit" in the upper right-hand corner to drag any desired options to the tab bar. Only four sort options can be displayed at once. Once you have your optimal configuration, select "Done". Your configuration will automatically be saved. To get back to the "Home" screen from the "More" screen, you need to select an icon from the tab bar (other than More) and the "Home" button will reappear in the navigation bar in the upper left-hand corner.
    The artwork for the books can also be viewed by turning your iPhone/iPod Touch horizontally.
