Ver. 2.0.4 thoughts

Posted on 08 January 2013

After several weeks of inputting my book collection I can say I am satisfied with this extension. While the extension is not geared towards the serious bibliophile, and that is the market it should be directed towards, it does allow for simplistic book cataloging.

A Pro version, with a paid subscription, would be a much needed addition the developers should look into.

All-in-all, this is a an excellent extension needing additions.

Good extension
