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).

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!

This latest version still has excessive icons in the menu bar but does get rid of excessive graphics in the dropdown menu. Clearer to see due dates. Getting rid of the 2 extra icons in the menu bar would make this more usable with cluttered menu bars and small screens. Does anyone else agree?

1. Growl support is now the only thing keeping me from switching to this completely. (My libraries are supported now!) 2. As noted elsewhere, the icons are now too big! Menubar space is limited!

This new version of Library Books is a menu hogger taking up 3x the space as the regular Library Books. The additional menu icon now includes a picture of a notebook which does nothing and a little green ribbon. Given that users use many other (more important menu services (Dropbox, Airport, Textexpander, etc) the author would do well to return to a single icon for Library Books that simply indicates the number of books checked out. This icon can turn different colors depending on whether books are due or over due. I've returned to the old version because this version simply does not fit in my menu bar.

I love this app. It revolutionized my library experience simply because I don't have to continually type my library card numbers or PINs now to log into the library website. But everything, from the calendar integration (I use BusyCal) to the menubar star works great. I would love to have paid money for the app and support its development, because the one thing it isn't is pretty. And I happen to love a beautiful interface. So if the developer would ever like to get some money for this app and add a little bit of eye candy, I'm on board. Right now, with two accounts and nineteen items out from the library, it's just a big fat white eyesore. But I'm not complaining: in utilitarianism, it takes the cake, and that's what apps are for.

What a stellar app!! Using it on Snow Leopard, and it works great. From what I can tell, it has no competitors. If you frequently take advantage of your local public library, this app is of great help keeping track of what's checked out and what's on hold. The fact that it can also log you into the library's website automatically is a wonderful bonus. I haven't tried the iCal integration yet. There's only one thing I'd like to see as an option in the future. My menu bar is starting to get cluttered. Instead of a menu bar item, I'm wondering if a dock item could be an option (which would display the number of items checked out, just as the Mail dock icon shows the number of new messages). The developer's website alludes to an iPhone version but I didn't find an ETA. Looking forward to it!

Wow, thanks for this! Like most people who would value this, I'm a heavy library user. Logging in to the library's own website is a multi-step affair, and you wind up at an unattractive website that's difficult to navigate. This program gives you an always-on connection so you don't have to log in every time you want to check your account and the information presented is clean and easy to read. The description didn't mention it, but, for my library anyway, I'm also seeing the list of books I have on hold and which ones are ready to pick up. And a link to the library renewal page--without having to log in. Nice! Thanks to the developer for the great work and making this really useful software available free.
