Sad news for Library Books and its users, though I can understand the developer’s need to move on. So long, Harold, and thanks for the fish!

I've been using this since its first release when only a handful of libraries were supported and made a couple of requests myself that were quickly supported. Highly recommended!

A fine piece of software, but sadly the libraries that I use have been unsupported for quite some time. Oh well, I’ve only been waiting 1014 days for the libraries in Lund (Sweden) to reappear. Guess I can wait a few days more …

The developer is very responsive and always interested in adding libraries. This program is incredibly helpful in rounding up books on their due date. I highly recommend it.

Checking on the beta requires re-entering library information. There is no sign of anything new in the app itself other than adding iPhone support in the preferences.

From prev rev: this is pretty handy as an app.
I was leery at first, but its really well done.

On first load after buying this app I found that you had to retry the UPDATE a few times for things to register accurately, but now it works fine (pre-Beta).

Correction - the iPhone support is already in the pre-Beta.
It added a second MAC icon.

New bug in 3.0xxx release: tries to update but when it downloads and installs update it fails. Permissions problem? Anyone else?

This is an excellent FREE program. Now that one of my two requested libraries is set-up for it, I am using this software daily and appreciating how it helps me monitor my loans and requests.

All I can reasonably wish for is support for the other library that I use. Many thanks to the developer!

You're blaming the App Store because the author decided he wanted to make some bucks?

If developer wanted some bucks, I'll pay for this app. Especially when the app is unique like Library Books. But many, many developers make their apps paid because Mac App Store. Often apps are paid only in App Store and still free for use on app's websites. And there is the problem of App Store. If you developing free or donationware or opensource app, Mac App Store will be loss for you. App Store is problem because Apple's policy to developers is problem.

@theotheoria: Absolutely nothing about the App Store pushes paid apps. If a free app goes to being a paid app, that is entirely the developer's decision.

Sorry, but what excites on you about it, this program does not cost any money in the world. It's only USD 2,99 oe EUR 2,13. What's the real problem? Naught the developer these some bucks.

Frequent updates? No, you got me there, I give up.

I believe they are both computer programs. I think they were also both programmed by humans from planet Earth. :-)

GraphicConverter: "an all-purpose image editing program that can import 200 different graphic-based formats, edit the image, and export it out of 80 file available file formats."

Library Books: "an application for keeping track of the library books you have borrowed."

It's really not that difficult, if you just believe in yourself, and really, really try.

Super convenient, but when are you going to put the custom icon back in the application?
