    Does any body know how it works? (Amazon?)
    And do you recommend it?

    Try this link Delicious-Monster

    You can choose where to get movie info from (imdb, amazon, different country sites etc)

    It's pretty cool. A little slow and lacking of features at this point, but still usable and shows great promise.

    I have the demo and it works good, you just have to hold the bar code really straight and it takes it right away. I had problems with Scholastic books not being found, but all my popular books and games/cds worked!

    I need to know whether it can get information for old (1950's) books?

    Thanks

    I am not sure how to access this functionality, maybe you could point me to where I can control this feature?

    Depending on which Delicious Library you have. 1.0 (maybe 1.1, can't remember it's been awhile since I've updated to 1.5) if you went to preferences you could set where to look for info. In 1.5 you no longer can do that, but you can use different countries from the "printed in: ..." menu. I think this is because amazon merged/bought out imdb so it's basically the same info.

    P.S. a little warm in the big smelter?

    Apparently I was a little off for the removal of amazon, imdb selection etc.

    You might wanna have a look at Bruji's products . They are not as fancy looking but definitely have A LOT more features and A LOT more plug-ins for different searches, etc.

    I tried Delicious Library too but it just doesn't cut it for me, maybe version 2 will get better. BTW, it is slow as hell with 200+ entries.

    Well you certainly won't be able to scan those in ;)

    Why don't you check a few of the ISDN numbers on those books on Amazon and see if they come up? If they do, then chances are that when you put the ISDN into Delicious Library, they'll come up there too.

    I will also put my support behind the Pedia range...
    When I switched I trialled most of the DVD Collection apps around.
    For me DVDPedia came out the best. I wanted to love Delicious stuff - especially with the iSight role!

    Pedia's have very quick turnaround... very responsive forums... developers who are actively involved with users and oftern provide new updates when someone notices a problem... and there are a huge number of options / plug ins. For me getting a R4 data source was essential.

    You can still do a title/author search for books that don't have an ISBN (all before the late 1960s). If all else fails and Delicious Library still can't find the book, you can enter it in manually.

    sadly... i thought delicious-library was expensive at $40... but those apps are $18 APIECE. you need 3 just to get the same functionality as delicious-library and you're still missing the Games end of it all.

    If you get all three together it is only $39. That's what I did.

    It's nice for those that just need one of them. And if you get all it's the same price. Good deal I guess.

    i would imagine delicious library does the same thing.. if the vinyl has an ISBN number then it would add it.. sadly it doesn't have a "vinyl" category.. but i think 2.0 is supposed to have the ability to add your own categories.. at least i would hope so. i'm not so sure i'll buy 2.0 unless it's like a $10 upgrade.. $40 is just too much for an app i barely use.

    And here we have to add the conversion rate too!
    Aussie dollar vs US dollar... sigh

    you could always just buy one or two of the apps then... after all iTunes has great display and search functions!

    I bought all three though. Only really using DVDpedia atm but am keen to use Book as well.
