As a businessman, I’m constantly on the lookout for better ways to manage my business, increase my productivity, and balance my life.  What better way to do that than with a good book.  I’m constantly getting recommendations from my friends, realtors, not to mention at conferences.  There are so many out there, I’ve found I really need something to keep them all organized.  We’ll that’s why Book Crawler came to be.

Book Crawler is the highest rated book database in the App Store.  To use it, type in a title, author, or ISBN number and let the rest of the book information automatically download into your app.  When a book is entered, it’s added to your book collection with a plethora of information available. Each entry lists the title, author, date read, genre, series, rating, publisher, ISBN, format, and Copyright. All of this information is completely editable.

Once your books are in the app, organize them in countless ways. You can add tags, collection information, custom fields,   and decimals (to note the location of books in a personal library). There’s also an option to link it to a book in the iBooks, Kindle, or Stanza apps, and you can even mark a book that you’ve loaned out.

Books can be sorted in over 20 different ways, from author and title to rating and tags making it super easy to find what you’re looking for. You can even set up a category for authors you’d like to keep an eye on.  It’s so easy to create the systems and there’s so many organization options you can customized specifically for you.

Just think, all of those books that Gino Blefari’s been recommending on his Thursday’s Thoughts on Leadership Blog can now be cataloged and shared through one simple app.  Get book organizing today!
