  1. Agreed. This is about as exciting as a Filemaker Pro database.

    Delicious Library is fun and sexy, with a touch of magic!
    People who don’t know the program flip when the see the barcode scan and disk info appear… like, like, well, like magic.

    How many other apps out there do this? Maybe Apple’s Photo Booth.

  2. I tried Delicious Library and it always seemed sluggish, always trying to logon somewhere, update something. It was a pain if I wanted to do a quick lookup. I much prefer Bruji’s *pedia apps (Bookpedia, DVDpedia, CDpedia).

  3. Avid fan of Delicious Library, to me one of the signature apps that makes macs unique. Hard to see myself switching. The easy xml output of this sounds nice though. Never tried the Pedias, but I like the fact that DL has all in one app.
