Houdah spot has some cool features. Tagging is real easy and tagging multiple books does not slow down my system like it does in Calibre.

I probably should ask this question in Calibre but hopefully someone here will know the answer. The books I tag with houdah are not recognized in Calibre which sucks.B/C tagging in houdah is a breeze compared to Calibre. Does anyone know why Calibre doesn't recognize metadata done in Houdah?

I can't rate the application b/c I can't buy it due to apple having some bug that won't let me buy applications from the app store.

Not happy. I updated (free) to 5.0 and now to download info from Amazon's site you have to register with Amazon. Registration requires a credit card number b/c some parts of the site are paid. Look ups are do not cost. I do not want Amazon to track what books I'am reading.
I will probably look for a new book app or install an earlier version of this software. Most likely all book application's that get info from Amazon's website will have the same register issue.

I have been using this program for a few days. I own the latest Delicious library version and have been using the trial version of librarian Pro. I wish all 3 companies would get together and combine their talents to make an awesome catalog software.

Huge Positives with bookpedia- (reasons I bought the software).
Import data on kindle books
link books to book picture in the library. I click on the link and acrobat opens the book automatically.

Negatives- can only catalog books. Genre on imported books could be better. Interface is little boring when not in cover view. Cover is not real easy to navigate to quickly find authors names.

Librarian Pro could be a really great program over time. The interface is awesome, imports kindle books, and can catalog other items besides books. Imports books with the genre label filled in accurately. Can't import using isight. Program has some bugs to be worked out in reference to kindle books not being imported with author names. Saving interface is weird.

DL- interface is wonderful. Importing with isight is a breeze. Easy to import numerous books by 1 author. Just have to cmd click and then shift. NO importing of kindle books.

I wrote this long winded review b/c before I buy an application I like to know pros and cons of competing software.

I love this program for one simple reason. The program imports information on kindle ebooks. I have been using Delicious Library for 2 years. The program cannot locate ebooks which is most of my book collection.
Now if I could just find a program that would import software from itunes, I would be so happy.
