Five years after launching Delicious Library 2, the developer Delicious Monster released the third version of its main product.
For those unfamiliar, the function of the Delicious Library will serve as a personal inventory. It can catalog belongings from a variety of categories, including books, discs (CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, etc.), videos, games, and more, and allows users to publish information on the web or synchronize it with other devices.
The novelties of the third version include a new look as well as many features, including 3D details and items on your shelf that “follow” the cursor, a new panel which shows all the statistics of your collection (such as the sum of your items) and your favorite genres / authors), a new recommendation system, the possibility to share your items on the web and to merge different bar codes, among other things.
One of the most interesting additions to Delicious Library 3 is the iOS app. With it, we can use the camera of the iPad or iPhone / iPod touch to scan products, which automatically go to our virtual shelf for this to work, I need to use the apps (iOS and OS X) on the same Wi-Fi network. That is, you can scan products at work, at a friend's house, or anywhere else, but the products will only be added to your virtual shelf when you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Mac.
Delicious Library 3 runs for $ 25, $ 10 less than the app's second verse; the free Delicious Scanner both are already available in the respective stores. It is worth noting that the scanner feature does not work very well in Brazil (at least in Delicious Library 2). The database used for research on Amazon, which does not yet have a large presence in our country. In our case, the vast majority of items must be added manually.
