DL2 on iPhone

Would be great to see a native iPhone app. Whether the iPhone acts as a remote version of your library or a standalone version. Camera in iPhone as barcode scanner. Allow additions to library, ability to check in out. Rather than just the .Mac publishing of static info.

  • Does anyone know what the iPhone app SnapTell is using? It returns results and displays book images and online prices and such. Are they using a service other than Amazon I wonder?

    PST - both Itemshelf (which scans barcodes in realtime and PocketPedia (which imports DL files) have returned to the App store and both still access amazon info. Did Amazon change their minds (unlikely)?

    I really want to purchase Delicious Library but without the iPhone app component there is less incentive. Will Delicious Library be ever (read:soon) release a new version of the app that either appeases Amazon or uses another source?

    In case people hadn't heard, Apple is now allowing access to the UIGetScreenImage() function. Is this the one that can be used for real time scanning? It's currently being used for live video streaming, like uStream and Qik.

    i'd love it if you could bring back the iphone/touch app. without the amazon store stuff. just an app. that mirrors what i loaded into my computer by scanning my items at home. i'm happy to not have all of amazon's price info ect. i just wanna see the cover image and title from outside my home when in a store or something before i purchase a double item.
    your website promises mobile compatibility but since the app. was taken off the app store, this is very misleading for new buyers when there in fact isn't a mobile option for my library that works.
    i like your product and don't see how hard it could be to make a mini version to be compatible with a synch from my computer where all the work was done.
    thanks!

    I have the original iPhone Library app. After the Amazon fiasco and the DL2 update, what will happen if I attempt to sync the iPhone app with DL2 now to incorporate the latest database updates?

    It's still working on my iPhone, but since the update following the DL2 update/Amazon issue, I haven't dared attempt to re-sync it. I realize it's no longer supported, but my question is for those of us who still have the app, does syncing still work? I'm afraid the moment I click on the sync button it will delete it from my iPhone, or otherwise disable it. I don't want to risk losing the use of the iPhone app with the database contents that were in it up to that point.

    Thanks for listening.

    Why don't you release the iApp for iPhone JUST for sync with the Mac ?
    You won't need Amazon agreement to do this ? do you ?

    Please !

  • Hey guys. I just wanted to respond to this again – trust me, we're listening and we want to get our iPhone app back just as badly as you want to have it. To everyone who's suggesting that we have a "limited view" sort of app where you can only view titles and other basic information, unfortunately this still goes against Amazon's rules about mobile apps. All of the information in your library comes from Amazon's database, regardless of what scanner you're using or how you added items. This means that as long as we use Amazon as our database search source, we cannot have a mobile app. We are working on a fix for this; it's one of our top priorities. Thanks again for your patience and understanding!
    • Hi Lia, is there anything we as users/customers can do or support you (delicious monster) to get the app ? How can we help to convince Amazon ?
      Does it has to be source "Amazon" is there no other "open" source which can be used for the App ?
      Do you have to stick with DL to the source "Amazon" ?

      If I would be Amazon why do I not want a great app with -n users/customers to use "my" source ? Isnt it a positive advertising for Amazon ?

      Best regards,
      Sandro

  • I’m expecting more with Delicious Library
    Is there any way to use the iPhone to read the library, and also to use the camera of the iPhone to scan items, it is more easy to use the camera instead of the camera of my macbook...

  • Read back through earlier posting here and you will see that Amazon has put a legal stop to attempts by DL2 to provide a product/version that allows your DL2 program and data to be viewed/used directly on portable devices like iPhones and iPads.

    As for using your phone to scan items user -royofsf- posted a process that worked for him as part of this thread...

    http://getsatisfaction.com/deliciousm...

    ... his postings on the topic started about 11 months back and he worked through several attempts to get a final solution that worked best for him. I don't use an iPhone for this... so its up to you to read through his process and see what works for you.

  • I’m feeling witty o_O
    Honestly I think I speak for every user here when I say that, as long as we can export our library to the phone, just having a watered down app would suffice until Amazon decides to take that stick out of their butts.

    Here's what I propose for a mobile app.

    1. The app look SOMEWHAT like the full version, shelves an all.

    2. App only updates after exporting from computer (no on-the-go adding). A wireless updating system would be very awesome...yet very unnecessary at this moment. This also means there wouldn't need to be camera support.

    3. No connection to amazon AT ALL. This means that pictures would have to be downloaded directly to the phone. This, of course, will cause issues memory so something would have to be done about that (I can't think of everything) lol

    Now, short of downloading the pictures directly to the phone, you could try uploading to iCloud. Seeing as how MobileMe doesn't seem to be functioning at 100% these days, this could be a nice little fix to our current issue of mobile library usage. Of course, I'm have NO idea if iCloud even supports usage like MobileMe did.

    4. I'm pretty sure we don't need to know the descriptions of the items from amazon, so having that info download into the app wouldn't be needed. Our own NOTES on the other hand would be nice.

    I can't seem to think of anything else at the moment.... but I'm sure I will. :-)

    Oh, and by the way, I absolutely LOVE this program. It has made the organization of my game library and other electronics SO much easier.

  • The problem is the information you are proposing be exported/copied to your iPod/iPhone, even if a limited and read only format, was originally generated in your library from an Amazon link. It is not just that they don't want an active mobile link. Any structured mobile use of the data obtained is not permitted under the program's access agreement with Amazon.

    I agree that what you are proposing would be great and would meet my needs. I do not need to scan/add items to my library until I get them and have them at home next to my computer. But I don't want to risk having DL2 loose the ability to source information for me from Amazon because they have violated the Amazon's contract governing the use of its application programming interfaces.

    Hi DL Peeps. I've been using the Library for years AND I LOVE IT!!! I just got my first iPhone (the 5) and have been reading about the difficulties of making an app. Any new word on the progress? Is there any work-around in the mean time?

    All I really need to a list of what I own so that I don't accidentally go out and buy something I already have.

    Thanks!!!

  • So I have the same problem as everyone else, I just want a simple list of my stuff so when I visit the store I don't buy duplicates.

    I've read this thread with interest and question why DL hasn't pulled the ability to export and upload your library to the web. Surely this is in contravention of the same clause that prevents the iPhone App, it's providing Amazon extracted data to a web site and this is just as strictly forbidden as providing to a mobil app.

    I would suggest using iMDb, TMDb, CDDB, freed and ISBNDB even if it's just to get a duplicate copy of specific data (title and image) for use in a mobile app; but that should have happened years ago.

    As someone in the company said, people have to eat, and as much as I'd like to give $11 to feed DL staff, instead I'm giving it to netwalkapps, who make Movielicious (wonder where they got that name from?), Musica and Book Keeper - 3 apps that could easily have been surpassed by a single DL app, but aren't.

    What's more, you can use your iPhone camera to barcode scan (I've seen excuses here) and it will Import from your DL library. How embarrassing.

    I will buy DL3 when the iOS app is released. I love DL, but I need my data on my phone and uploading to Dropbox is just too slow over G3 Data, and I can't search my library! Basic info. The iOS version doesn't have to do or show everything.

  • Hi All,

    Unfortunately we are still at an impasse with Amazon and do not have any news to report on the development of an iApp that allows you to take your library on the go. The dropbox solution is the best we can do at the moment. We are also working on adding a feature to allow you to create your own templates so when you do publish your library you can include whatever information you'd like. Again that's the best we can do right now. Thanks for sticking with us.
