so I'm a new member and was excited to see I can even watch my addiction to this site on my iPod touch. Only thing is the app just shows what books are requested, need to be mailed or have been mailed. Really doesn't do anything like you can't mark them as mailed. You can search for books or look at your lists but not modify them. I would love to add to my bookshelf by just zapping the bar code on the back of books instead of typing the whole thing in. I could super crazy at a book store and never by another book!!!

so any chatter on whether it will be updated? it hasn't been since it's release at the beginning of the year. Plus it costs $1.99! totally not worth it right now but stuck with it.

Welcome to PBS Kristina!  I'm not that techie myself, but have heard there are options for doing the types of things you want to do.  Keep asking here or in CMT (Club Member Thoughts)...sure I've seen these discussions somewhere  smiley

The app also isn't developed by PBS, it is by a member. I'm trying to remember the name.
