Catalog your books, movies, music, software, toys, tools, electronics, & video games.

Get your Mac, a webcam, and Delicious Library and rediscover your home library. Just point any FireWire digital video camera, like an Apple iSightâ„¢, at the barcode on the back of any book, movie, music, or video game. Delicious Library does the rest. The barcode is scanned and within seconds the item's cover appears on your digital shelves filled with tons of in-depth information downloaded from one of six different web sources from around the world. Once your whole library is cataloged, you can find and use your items like never before.

Seems like a really cool idea, but doesn't $40 seem a bit steep?

If you like displaying your CD, DVD, or books collection, so visitors stand in awe at what you've got, and you're a tidbit nerdy when it comes to classifying all those goodies... Than this is the app for you.

Slow but useful. Will be great if performance is improved.

Quite slow (especially when it fills up a bit) and often it won't find the correct item if you're entering the title details manually rather than using a scanner (doesn't seem to find quite a lot of my DVD titles this way).
The best way to get them recognized manually is to go to Amazon and find the ASIN number and type this in instead.....you'll virtually always get the correct titles this way.
Then again, with an isight camera or a scanner, it would obviously work even better :)

One for the intel crowd then :D

This is one of the slickest looking, most well thought out apps I have every bought. I highly recommend it for anyone with lots of media to keep track of.

I love it. Then again my library is small, but I love the app.

Beautiful UI aside, for me the biggest glaring omission with Delicious Library is that it dont search any non-english libraries. For me it meant that Booxter was my choice.

I can't think of anything really good about this app beyond the fact that it is pretty. And hence, fits nicely on some Macs. But that's about it.

The point of a book cataloging application is to catalog all your books. If the application is unuseable once you have a thousand or so books (well within reason for any dedicated reader) then the application, no matter how pretty it looks, has failed in its primary function and cannot be considered "well-designed."

The complaints here are all valid. However, this is still the coolest and most well designed app that I've ever seen.
