Francisco Martínez Senior editor

This review applies to version 4.2. The latest version of this software will soon be reviewed by our informers.

Regardless of the size and contents of your personal library, you will find in All My Books all the functionality you need to organize your books and documents, to keep track of the books your friends borrowed from you, and to create full records of your e-books and audio books, their authors, plot, etc.
Complete with search filters, import and export tools, and statistics, All My Books is a comprehensive and efficient cataloging utility for all.

Designed to be helpful to all kinds of users, the program comes with an attractive and functional interface where you can have a global view of all your library as well as neat individual presentations of each of your holdings. From there you can click on the link provided and visit the book’s record in Amazon.com for additional info. You can add or change the book cover, edit the synopsis, subject, or publisher, and add new items easily and quickly by importing data from the Web using the ISBN. You can also add new books by filling in your own book cards, or by scanning your drives looking for new e-books and other documents in all the most common formats, such as PDF, DOC, EPUB, TXT, LIT, MOBI, FB2, and many more. You can have as many “shelves” as you wish to help you locate specific books organized by type, subject, binding, etc.

Once your collection is organized, you can create new cards for your friends and relatives, so that they can borrow from your collection without losing track of where your books have gone. Thus, the program offers you a comprehensive history of all the loans, either by book or by borrower. And if you wish to carry your library with you and have instant access to who has which book, you can synchronize all your databases with the iPhone/iPad version of All My Books in a fast and convenient way.

All My Books can also export e-books and audio books to your e-book reader or any other external reading device. However, and unlike similar (and free) tools (Calibre comes to mind), this cataloging tool lacks e-book conversion capabilities, so you need to have your electronic books in the right format before sending it to your iPad or Kindle. Despite this minor flaw, All My Books stands as a powerful contender among the many cataloging books available out there.

Pros

  • Excellent search engine to add new books to your library.
  • Helps you to control your loans.
  • Clear and functional interface.
  • Syncs with the iPhone/iPad version.
  • Moves your e-books to and from your reading devices.

Cons

  • Lacks e-book conversion capabilities.
