New iPhone App Helps Book Lovers Organize and Share Their Favorites

in Books (E)

[] Wye Valley UK - People who love to read and share their favorite books with friends now have a new iPhone app to help them recall each book they've read, enter notes on what they liked about each one, jot down the titles they'd like to read, and share favorites with friends by Facebook or email. BookLover 1.0, by Electric Pocket, also automatically fetches the book cover and, in many cases, a synopsis of each book in the reader's collection or on their Wish List.

BookLover is ideal for true book lovers who not only are always on the lookout for good books, but eagerly share with friends after they've read a great one. They simply input the title and author (if known) and BookLover goes online to retrieve the cover art and any other information available.

Books are displayed on BookLover's beautifully designed bookshelves for easy access when chatting with friends or shopping at the bookstore. Users can organize the books on the shelves however they'd like, and can easily drag and drop books between shelves to change how they are categorized.

For members of book clubs, or those who just enjoy discussing books with friends, BookLover enables them to jot their notes down for each book so they are prepared for the discussion with their insightful thoughts. This is also a handy feature to simply record who a book has been loaned to. Sharing book reviews is a snap with BookLover's Facebook and email sharing options. Users simply write their thoughts in BookLover's text editor and with the click of a button, can email directly to friends or post on their Facebook walls.
