Know what you read



Please keep the Book Crawler application open and in the foreground on iOS devices when syncing a database to the cloud.  Apple will kill applications that process while in the background and this can corrupt your database file.  I also recommend that "Background App Refresh" is turned on in Settings for Book Crawler when using cloud support.

If you placed the application into the background when you initially began syncing with the cloud and "lost" your database, please contact me so that I can give you instructions to recover that data.  

    Book Crawler is your personal portable book database for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch device, and now available for your Mac Desktop!  Now avid readers have a simple and dependable tool to catalog and share their favorite book collections in one app!  Book Crawler was designed to provide a real-time solution for the avid reader who requires a powerful and intuitive database for logging, searching, and organizing publications and authors of interest. ISBN barcode scanning, customized search parameters, local library availability queries (powered by WorldCat), book previews/cover art (powered by Google Books), location-aware, and book reviews (powered by Goodreads) make this app a must have for the serious book lover! It’s a great tool for library professionals, teachers, book collectors, and students.
