Helps you discover new things

Delicious Library integrates your wishlist, ratings, and friends to generate smart recommendations so that if a friend owns a recommended item, Delicious Library highlights it. Delicious Library is also useful if you want to sell items that you no longer need or have read/watched. You can publish your collection to the web in just one click and even find out if something you own has special collector's value. However, this feature is only limited to Amazon.

Elegant bookshelf perspective

Delicious Library is incredibly easy to use and looks great thanks to the elegant bookshelf view. It looks really awesome, especially on Retina Macs although it is quite hungry for RAM. It's very easy to see at a glance what you own, how much it is worth, how many of a book, DVD etc you have.

A stunning way to catalog your collection

Delicious Library looks great, comprehensively analyzes your collection and makes sharing and managing your entertainment fun.

Get your Mac, a webcam, and Delicious Library and rediscover your home library. Just point any FireWire digital video camera, like an Apple iSight®, 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. Browse, sort, and search through your digital shelves. Sync your cataloged library onto your iPod or print a color catalog and take it with you. Find and purchase new items using Delicious Library's personalized recommendations. Keep track of the items your friends are borrowing using Delicious Library's loan management system, which integrates with Apple's Address Book and iCal.
