XLIBRIS is a book database with powerful search and export facilities.

Simply enter or scan in the ISBN number (3SG and 4G owners only) and the bibliographic data (including cover, author, title, publisher, publishing date, edition, dimensions, number of pages, and Dewey Classification Number) will be downloaded from the net.

The database can be searched for Author, Title, Publisher, Edition, Note, Dewey Classification Number or Language. Search terms can be OR’d in any field. All fields are ANDED together. Searches can be saved.

The complete database, or search results, can be exported to, or imported from, another iPhone, assuming that both users are running xLibris. The transferred data includes all fields. This allows data exchange between xLibris users: ‘I’ll send you my Dashiell Hammett, if you send me your Raymond Chandler.’ The full database, search results or notes can also be emailed in text form.

All imported data can be edited. Cover images can be changed by importing from the Photo Library.

A snapshot of the complete bibliographic data of a book (including cover) can be emailed to anybody whether they are running xLibris or not.

Notes can be attached to any book. Notes provide a way of extending the search capacities by creating tags. The user can add a genre and search for all notes containing ‘Crime’ or ‘Art History’. More prosaically, and possibly importantly, the user can find all books that have been borrowed and not returned, export the search results as text and spend the afternoon calling in the delinquencies.

The full database and Search Results can be sorted by Title, Author, Publisher or Edition and subsorted by the same fields. The current sort order is stored every time the application is quit.

xLibris provides a statistical analysis of the database, breaking down the catalogue by Author, Publisher, Language or Saved Searches. The resulting data can be displayed in pie or bar chart form.

xLibris uses a modification of the ZBar scanning library (Copyright © 2007-2009 Jeff Brown - spadix@users.sourceforge.net).
