We’re happy to start this week with a bucket ‘o improvements to the BillMonk library.
Dig that “misc computer stuff” box out of the attic and find the :CueCat (c) scanner that you grabbed from RadioShack back in 1998. Plug ‘er in, go to the “Bulk Add” page (from the Library), and happily scan in stacks of books for your collection – we translate its wacky output to ISBN and UPC codes.
We also made some UI fixes:
- When you pick which items to add, we tell you which ones are already in your collection
- Rather than having to aim your mouse at teensy checkboxes to pick which items to add or check-out, you can now click anywhere on a line
Finally, we plugged Amazon recommendations into the “Add” pipeline, making it super-easy to say “hey, I own that, too!”
