First, let me tell you how invaluable Librarian Pro is to me! I have been a volunteer for an incredible organization called Bookshare for probably about seven years now. I was introduced to it way back in 2004 when my daughter, Cindy, who had cerebral palsy wanted to be able to read books independently. We had lots of books in our house, but no way for her to see a list. Later, the reading bug hit our younger daughter, Nichole, and by then my husband and I were full-fledged volunteers scanning an and proofreading books to make them digitally accessible for people with print disabilities. I have been even been known to take my service dog, Daisy, to the library to help me complete collections. Librarian Pro has been allowing us to catalog not only the thousands of books in our home, but our daughter's massive video collection. I highly recommend Librarian Pro all my friends who need to organize any of their media!

I can't believe how much this app doesn't even compare with its competition. It blows them all right out of the water, no questions asked. Even Delicious Library takes a backseat to Librarian Pro, and I've used Delicious forever. Looks like it's out with the old and in with the new and absolutely brilliant.

You can use this app for anything, not just movies and books! I was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered the dynamics of this app and all the possibilities that came with it. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but I'm glad I do now. I won't be using anything else for as long as I live.

Beautiful, incredibly user-friendly interface. Does everything that other home inventory apps do and then some. I don't feel any need at all to search for an alternative to compare to like I have before with other apps. I believe I've reached the end of the road here after finding this one and the view is breathtaking. Highly, highly recommended.

This isn't just an inventory system. It's an incredible one. Better than anything else I've ever used. Not only is it superior to Delicious Library in my opinion, it's also compatible with it - how can you argue with that? This app has saved me so much time and stress I feel the least I can do is write it a golden review. 10/10 and two thumbs up here for sure.

No limits. I was sold on this one the first time I ever used it. You can make your databases as simple or as complicated as you like - the limits here are entirely up to you. Another bonus is that it's compatible with both Mac and Windows. I'm just waiting for an iOS version to take with me on the go and my life will be complete. Keep at it, Koingo. You guys are wonderful.

Librarian Pro has no limits whatsoever! Delicious Library really limits what you can do with it once you've actually put a collection into the database. I think I've officially been converted… so long, Delicious. It's been fun.

There's a comfort in knowing that all your possessions are categorized and logged neatly all in one place. My house got broken into a couple of years back and I only wish I'd had this app to look back on and figure out what was missing after the fact. So incredibly useful and easy to apply to your every day life. I swear I'll never live another day without it.

How many things can I say that are wrong with this program? Let's get started.. If you create a library, close Librarian Pro and then re-open it, it won't default to the last library opened... there's no setting to enable that.. Librarian Pro treats each library like a Word doc.. when you start.. you start with an empty Library and go from there. Bluetooth scanner support.. doesn't work.. at least not with the one I tried.. there were extra characters being added to the end of the code. I tried modifying the data stream settings for different parity and stop bits.. no luck. No iPhone camera support.. And holding items up to my camera on my computer is ridiculous. Speed? I have a Dual 6 core Mac Pro.. and it still clunks along once the library has about 300 items + image information. It's closest competitor is way beyond this in flexibility, speed and functionality. Just type "librarian pro vs " in Google and you'll find out which one that is..

In general, I think it is cool that there are some database programs that one can use to obtain, to store, and to index information about media collections, like videos. I like the ability to download useful data on a video, or a book, fif it would make my life easier than tracking my media in the FileMaker databases I had created for such a purpose. So, I am in the process of assessing such database programs in order to settle on one that suits my needs. Below are notes to myself, as I ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of these programs. Right now, the flaws stand out in my mind, so use my opinions and my venting at your own convenience, or not. These notes concern Booxer as compared to Librarian Pro, which I am considering replacing by something more customer friendly for the reasons indicated below. Booxer design flaws and first impressions > No Serial Number field: Where is the field for entering a Serial Number? How is it possible that this designer does not include a Serial Number field by default? Does he think that people sort their video collections by Title? How dumb can you get? > Custom data field Is there even a way to add a custom field? I don't see any. Another oversight. When will designers think in terms of what a customer wants, instead of what the designer wants? > Font size is abyssmally small. This designer set 11 point as the default font size for displaying text. Does he think that his software should run only on ancient Macs with their tiny screens? Has he not heard that people use large displays? Does he not realize that people want the option to set the font size to suit themselves, rather than use a magnifying glass just to read the damn data? Another self-centered software designer who fails to think about design from the customer's viewpoint. How is it possible that such people can learn how to program a Mac but they cannot relate to the needs of the people to whom they are trying to sell their product? It's so frustrating to see such simple, self-destructive mistakes in design. After all, if you can bump up the font size in Apple Mail and in Safari and in online Help and in other applications, why can't programmers allow us the option to adjust the text size bigger or smaller within their applications, too? Or, if such a function is beyond their skills or the capability of the operating system, then I think it behooves them to present a layout that is acceptably legible and big enough to be read without discomfort, instead of presenting us with small window layouts stuffed with tiny fonts! Do they think it costs more to give us fonts in 14 point instead of 11 point? > Inadequate Search capability Koingo's Librarian Pro also suffers from that same inability to let customers adjust the font sizes to something more comfortable to their reading pleasure, and their developer adamantly refuses to deal with fixing the problem. When I suggested doing that, I got embroiled in a series of emails with tech supporter/owner that ended with him saying that Koingo no longer supported version 2, even though I had specified in the very first feature request that I was using version. Foolish, rude man. All he did was waste my time and sidestep the whole point of the feedback. Despite that poor attitude, at least Librarian Pro has a search feature in which you can type in a title and the software performs the search at Amazon.com. As far as I can tell, Booxer can't even do that. That's a deal breaker for me. Am I supposed to know the esoteric UPC number, or the ASIN number, apparently by consulting the packaging or by looking it up online? I find that a designer who tasks the customer to do the work that the software can is rather puniutive, while subjecting me to a time-wasting nusiance. Customers want software to do the work for us in order to save us time, not to make us work harder. So, again, Booxer is flawed with this additonal unfriendly feature. > Poor Use of Screen Real Estate (i.e, Wasted Screen Space) Librarian Pro's developers are horribly guilty on two counts: not only do they make their fonts too tiny, but they also waste 75% of the screen showing nothing but white space. Booxer's developer uses small font in a small window, so he is equally guilty in not using the entire display which is at his disposal. Mac designers like these have a 200-mph Lamboughini car in the driveway, but all they use it for is to drive around a circle hoping not to bump in the curb. > Interface and Layout Design While I like the record layout in Booxer better than Librarian Pro, for at least the Booxer developer shows enough common sense to lay out all the pertinent fields in one screen load. Librarian Pro's developers has taken the approach that screen real estate is meant to be wasted, because all they do is list the fields of data in rows one under the other at the left side of their layout, leaving the remaining 75% absoulutely blank. Either they did that because Koingo's developers take long vacations, or they are just too busy to take the time to actually layout a screen in which the data is cleanly presented in one screen load, or they have no graphic designers on board who passed Graphic Design 101. > Multiple clicks approach is like digging for coal in a mine To make things worse, Librarian Pro presents the data in a record in stages: if you click on an individual record in a list of videos, you get an "in-depth" layout consisting of six separate side-window "tabs" that you have to click on to get specific information, like Basics, Details, Reviews, Ownership, Borrowing, and Additonal. Why the serial number field has to be buried on the "Additional" screen is a mystery to me, for I find it really irritating to have to go through so many mouse-clicks to get to the field where I want to enter a serial number that I use for physically filing and retrieving the disc, when desired. > Good news for obsessives and pack rats Obsessive collectors leaning towards the anal rententive end of the scale may reallly like having 68 different fields into which they can stuff data, but all I really want is to able to index a video by title and by serial number so that I can find it when I want it. Having story summaries and credits is nice, too, but I want a simple database that serves me, not one in which I have to serve it. > Export feature flawed In preparation for moving my data from Librarian Pro to another program, I tried for hours to get a clean tabbed delimited file from Librarian Pro. I could not. Librarian Pro was able to export some fields into discrete, tab-delimited columns that would line up nicely in an Excel spreadsheet, but I could find no way to cleanly export the story Summary field so that its data would be contained within one single cell. Other fields also suffered from this same problem of having data spill over into adjoining cells, thus destroying any possibility of being able to quickly, easily, and accurately import that data into another database, like FileMaker Pro, or any other competitive product. Bad form, Koingo. Addtionally, although Librarian Pro's allows you to export its record in HTML form so that you can view records in a browser, you can neither select the fields that you want to export, nor can you search for the records once the HTML pages are created, a flaw which, to me, makes exporting to HTML entirely useless. If I can't search for the data, what good are those records? Interestingly, Koingo's developers didn't even the common sense to include the Serial Number field in a very small subset of fields that could be exported via a restricted, pre-determined template. Someone needs to be hired in Quality Control at software companies like Koingo and Booxer to act in the role of a Customer Ombudsman, because the software engineers who are coding the programs certainly aren't fulfilling that role! Wise developers will take heed and fix these inadequacies. Others will rationalize why they need not bother. I choose not to support them.

I didn't want to upgrade to Delicious Library 3 and tried this out having previously used the 1.x version. It took me two days to figure out how to import my DL2 library (can't import from a backup or DL2 it turns out, need DL3 and collection files installed!) With 900 books/movies performance was horrid on a 2011 mini with 8 GB of RAM! Redraws of the thumbnails took forever and the screen constantly flickered during any type of redraw. Same problems when I tried the Windows version on my 4 core gaming PC with 16 GB. Asked for a refund as they state they have a 30 day guarantee. Their support site has had an On Vacation message for a month now. They closed my ticket without resolving the issue or issuing a refund and now I'm having to go through PayPal for a refund. I will not be buying any Koingo products in the future as this company has terrible support!

I was sincerely interested in testing this new version, as v.2 wasn't useful to me because the poor cpu performance, but still the same issues than v.2 on v.3 and no real improvements on this software far away than the icon redesign and some minor changes. There are a lot of cosmetic improvements that would be "delicious" to the graphic wh**es, but people looking for a good computer performance with huge databases must avoid again Librarian Pro. Of course, test the application first and take your own conclusions. v.3 is easy to use, really easy, and I would recommend it to people with few items in their collections, but if you have more than a hundred of DVDs, books and other stuff think twice. Thanks.

I have to say that I have been using Koingo's apps since 2004 and have necer had any issues with their software or service. I paid for one of their package deals direct and have always had "no issue" upgrades and instant registration. Data Guardian, or Password Retiever" as it used to be called was the first of Koingo's apps that I used and Librarion Pro looks after my extensive library. Contrary to some revies, I have no problem with continuing to use their products. That is not to say that companies do not make mistakes or lose their way occasionally, but I'm always happy to give them a another chance.

I've been testing this software as I need an app that includes more collections (I'm user of dvdpedia and need to store books and video games too so don't want to pay for different pedia apps). Librarian is a clean software, beautiful, easy to use, but from my point of view, it lacks on more options to grab info from the web (it only uses Amazon as search) an is painful when your database is higher than ridiculous 50 mb. I import my dvdpedia database to Librarian. It was successful including pictures, and was about 1,200 films. When trying to open it Librarian excuses its bad memory performance on a database bigger than 50 MB and opening and working with that database is painful as hell. My iMac is intel, two years old with 3 Gb of Ram and Leopard. I think it's a needed improvement from Koingosoft because Librarian is great, really , but only if you have a small database is worth paying. thanks.

I agree with trail walker about apps in this category being ownership-centric. For example, I'd prefer a database that made it convenient to keep track of DVD rentals (including wish lists) instead of just the relatively few I own. Heck, why not also track movies that you're seen or may want to see in theaters, too?

I bought a program like this about 4 years ago- but it was called "library" and when we tried to find it again after disk errors- we got a million "library" files- so it was gone. It looked a lot like Librarian Pro- but, it worked with a bar code scanner- we'd scan the upc code- and everything would enter- without that function- Librarian Pro is worthless- and yes- I downloaded it- and tried it. Amazing how not having a fairly simple feature can kill the value of a program. I'm going to look at booxter

DL gets an edge for the rather unreliable iSight scan, but what I really want to see in a librarian software is support for Paperbackswap.com and other trades - this one seems to assume that you either keep a book or lend it out, never sell or trade.

I was a beta tester for this program, and like all Koingo software, it's superb for personal use. If you need a program for use in a smaller public library (e.g. a business or church), you probably will find it lacks some needed features for these kinds of multi-user locations. But for individual use, it should give you just about everything you need for a much lower price than most decent library software. And at this price, you can't go wrong!

I'm wondering if this is better than Delicious Library. Specifically in it's organization structure.

I just downloaded the Librarian Pro demo, installed it, and took a look at what it can do. It has a very straight-forward and intuitive interface, so I felt comfortable starting to use it right away. First I noticed that it is works closely with Amazon (including search, view cart, download Amazon ratings), which I like since I shop and research products on Amazon almost every day. Secondly, it has "Smart Collections" so you can automatically organize a new folder based on your own rules. Thirdly, you can import not only from previous collections on other inventory programs but also from iTunes (it took seconds to scan my iTunes albums and neatly list them alphabetically, with all the included track information!) and my hard drive for software applications (listed them and included their own cute icons!) Librarian Pro is an amazingly simple but powerful inventory system.

I wonder if it could also be used for a large library - my own private library must have some 25,000 to 30,000 volumes, I have started to enter new books using Booxter, but I am open for other types of applications like this one, although I wonder if it has really the same possibilities as Booxter (i.e. not only interrogate Amazon, but catalogs of major libraries as well).

Without barcode scanning, you're looking at a very tedious chore. Other than that shortcoming, it looks promising.

I love the developer's work; I own two of his other apps, but I'm looking for an inexpensive app that will catalog my data CD's. I can't see a way to do that with this. I'd use this for books, except that it doesn't scan the Library of Congress like Booxter does.

The biggest thing going for Delicious Library is the barcode scanning. However, I've found inputting my ISBN for library books to be more accurate and almost as fast. DL is limited on what you can do after the collection is in the database. This is where Librarian Pro shines.

Nice that it is putting multiple databases in one program rather than having separate ones for each type of item such as books, movies, etc. Strange that it doesn't have a general household inventory by default. Would be nice to have some different field choices.

I am impressed, at least, by Koingo's generosity, and I haven't even downloaded this software yet. I've got all of their other applications (every single one) because they offered them once as a big bundle at an almost give-away price. Some I don't use at all but others are very handy, and they all seem to be of a decent quality. I'm not sure how useful to me Librarian Pro will be, but at a 67% discount I'm buying it just to show a bit of extra support to what appears to be an unusually open-handed company.

Just tried it out and unfortunately on my library of < 2000 it is just as slow to start up as Delicious Library. If it was faster than DL I'd buy it even though I already bought DL. The *Pedia programs might be faster. Haven't tried those.

I enjoy adding stuff to Delicious Library, but it's not that useful for me most days. I use DiskLibrary all the time to find stuff I've archived to CD and DVD, and it's getting more powerful all the time, but it's only for data discs. Perhaps this is the uber-app I've been looking for?

This is a nice library app. The ability to import from other libraries, including DL, is a great timesaver and makes it easy to decide to adopt this over DL. The developers appear to be very responsive to bug reports and feature requests. The biggest thing this application has over DL is the extensive breakdown of Music information. I much prefer this implementation over DL.

Every library app I have examined seems focused on OWNING STUFF rather than ACCESS IDEAS. For instance, I want to distinguish a) categorized list of mystery novels I have read (primarly borrowed from my local library) b) technical titles I use at my university library c) e-books on topics which matter to me d) books I have bought In the meantime, I have a DL license and prefer to use Books (which is free).

Version: 1.0.2
Overall: A good start (v1) to the already crowded 'collection apps' market. It is a step up from Delicious Library but a step down from Bruji's pedia apps (which I'm currently using). Details: Features: A few features here that you would really appreciate if you had been using DL (which is sorely missing some of these) like smart collections, multiple ISBN entries and additional entry fields. However there are many missing features here that are present in the pedias and/or DL: iSight scanning, Full screen mode, wishlist, multiple collections, iTunes integration, statistics, multiple download sites (rather than depending on just Amazon) among others. There is the inclusion of a few additional categories not seen in others (Hardware and Software) which may be of interest to some (but for me it didn't make sense to have a listing of what was in my apps folder). Interface: Looks OK. But, the blue/white lines on the left panel annoy me a bit (I think mainly because they clash and don't line up with the ones on the right). It was less intuitive than the competition (it was even hard to find out how to add an entry from amazon without the help files) Price ($29.95): Competitive compared to DL ($40) and Pedias ($18 for 1, $39 for 3) but it also depends what features you are after. Stability: Didn't crash at all. But did have some trouble doing the imports from Bruji Summary / Outcome: I'm sticking with Bruji's apps. Easier to use and more features. If you were considering Librarian Pro against Delicious Library, I'd probably go with this just for the price and the smart collections, but you'd miss out on the iSight scanning. Coming from Koingo Software, I'm sure this will improve with time and as such will definitely be one to keep an eye on.
