Delicious Library overview

Delicious Library allows you to import, browse, and share all your books, movies, music, and video games with Delicious Library. Run your very own library from your home or office using our impossibly simple interface. Delicious Library's digital shelves act as a visual card-catalog.

A scan of a barcode is all Delicious Library needs to add an item to your digital shelves, downloading tons of info from the Internet like the author, release date, current value, description, and even a high-resolution picture of the cover. Import your entire library using our exclusive full-speed iSight video barcode scanner, our Flic Wireless Laser Bar Code Scanner, or (the slow way) entering the titles by hand. Once you have all of your items in your Mac, you can browse though your digital shelves, check stuff out to friends using Apple's built-in Address Book and calendar, and find new items to read, watch, and play using Library's recommendations.

Quickly importing your stuff into Delicious Library doesn't require a dedicated barcode scanner - you can use any QuickTime-supported digital video camera, like your Apple iSight. Just hold the barcode on the back of any book, movie, CD, or video game in front of the camera and your item magically shows up on your digital shelf seconds later. Using the same technology found in $800 industrial-strength CCD barcode scanners, Delicious Library reads every single frame of digital video; seeking out, targeting, and instantly decoding any visible barcodes. This results in a seamless process of scanning that lets you import about 750 items an hour (assuming you can move your arms that fast). At that rate the staff of the new downtown Seattle Central Library could work together to import all of their 1.4 million books into Delicious Library in just over 5 hours.

Sad that all the people that paid and had volumes of records that they took the time to enter are now abandoned. I've tried support email and it's never answered. I'll be sure to never but any software from the company ever again. Very disappointed in their customer service. If that's changed since November of 2023 then I'll await a response.

Just upgraded to Mac OS 14, and Delicious Library 3.9.3 appears to be broken - cannot even complete startup. Any workarounds, or new version pending?

I love it for the most part, but I agree that version 2 had a better interface than 3. But all the web site links for the software no longer work; I think the creators are no longer supporting this software. If I recall correctly, I first noticed the lack of response sometime in mid-2020... I have been unable to confirm this, however.

This may be one of the worst Mac apps of all time. Sure, there are apps that crash, and apps that don't work at all, but Delicious Library works just enough that you keep trying to use it. I'm now on the third major version of DL, and it is just as slow as it was when it first came out. It does have an interesting feature set, but the only thing I've found that is slower than DL is Delicious Monster tech support. You can e-mail them and never hear back. Ever. Did a clean install of macOS 11 Big Sur, which resulted in the loss of all 5,000+ of my DL entries. E-mailed support to find out where to look on my pre-install backup. Nothing. Nada. Par for the course with them. Even if the software worked perfectly, it would still be flawed by the fact that it uses Amazon (and other?) sources for data, which means that you are at the mercy of whomever does data entry for those sources, and it ain't pretty. I'm thinking a text file with a list of our books might be more efficient and fun to use than Delicious Library. I can't believe this company is still in business.
