[prMac.com] Wye Valley United Kingdom - BookLover, the popular iPhone app for those who love reading and sharing information on their favorite books with friends, now offers a barcode scanning feature to make it even easier to enter books into the app. Once entered, BookLover 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, developed by Electric Pocket, 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. Another new feature added to the latest version is the ability to sort books by title or author.
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.
