It's a shame the developer isn't supporting this app anymore, because it's absolutely fantastic. I think people forget how much great stuff is available at their local library. Sure, there are books, but there's also music, movies and more... and with this app, all of your holds are in your menubar at a click. It's really well done.
I have saved myself so much money by using this application. No more fines!!
Handy app, responsive developer
This is fine little application for managing library holds and loans. Moreover, the developer is quick and courteous in responding to problems and suggestions.
Fantastic App - Responsive Developer
This app is actually better than described. The screen shot shows how it displays your checkouts and holds, but there is also functionality built into the submenu for each library card that will open up a browser window to your library home page, the hours of operation page, or log you into your account and open that page. In addition, another feature copies your login (usually your library card number) to the clipboard. This is great, for instance, when logging into your library's eBook provider, which often requires that you re-enter your library card number.In addition, the developer is extremely responsive in adding and troubleshooting new libraries at the user's request. His site has a database that tracks the status of the various libraries supported by the app, and he emailed me right away when I added one requesting support. He sent several beta versions to me via email over the next few days, asking me to test them and return a debug file generated by the program. After a couple of iterations, he was able to integrate my library into the software effectively.I highly recommend this application, as it has made keeping track of multuple library accounts tremendously easier.
What Other App Pays for Itself Again and Again
My three children and I take a lot of books out of the library. Before I got this app, I was forever paying fines on books we had forgotten we had borrowed. When I saw the app in the store I was intrigued but there was not yet support for the library we use most often. I was amazed how quickly the developer added that support when I inquired. Since then, I don't know how much money I have saved, but I do know I have not owed a penny on a single library book. I always know exactly what I have out and when it is due.
