Smile Anyone wants to join our beta testing at catalog.im? A new cloud ebooks library!

We are working on this "catalog.im" project, that aims to help book lovers to have a central place to store the whole ebooks library, and access the library on almost any device.

Very easy to use:
  1. Upload your ebooks and your personal library is all set (we identify the ebooks, fill in title, author and cover etc)
  2. Get your ebooks by downloading, OPDS, or "Send to Kindle" (my favorite feature)

Rich features:
  1. Upload & Done
  2. Full text search, even for book content (under working)
  3. PDF · EPUB · MOBI formats
  4. OPDS feed, Send to Kindle, and direct download ebooks
  5. Note & Rating
  6. Tags
  7. Reading Progress
  8. Public, theme-able library page

The service is under development at the moment, and we would love to have some people to try it out and give us feedbacks

Please leave your email address (or send it to me as a private message) so that I can invite you.

Some screenshots (click to enlarge):

Thanks!
You can use it for free, until the number of your ebooks reaches the limit. And we are going to make the premium service very affordable.

Stay tuned!

Flex Ding All the best with your service.

Can a moderator please reach out to me and explain how I can get the authorization to make a similar post in "Reading and Management". I have been wanting to post BookFusions description in the appropriate section(Reading and Management)

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=180007

Bookfusion has been in public beta for the last 4 months and I would like to post screenshots and feature set for the much improved and redesigned reading platform that will become public within the next few months.

We had experienced some engineering issues but now we have fixed them. So, catalog.im has entered its public beta today!

It says free trial ... what's the pricing? "The first two weeks are free" is too similar to how they push drugs ...

Hi. I registered and uploaded an epub but now can't see the option to download it. The only options I have are Rematch, Edit and Delete.

What happens when someone with an active account stops paying? I assume they're locked out; how long is their content kept around--how long do they have to reactivate before their content is deleted?

Filetypes: Do you expect to support .cbr/.cbz files?

The "unlimited books" books option... how unlimited is that? The company I work for regularly processes a few hundred mb of PDFs at a time. While those were never intended as ebooks (scanned legal documents, mostly), there are plenty of large PDFs that are ebooks--archive.org and googlebooks both have scanned PDFs. Between those and the ability to convert .cbz to .pdf, you could find yourselves storing dozens to hundreds of gb of scans for high-capacity users.

Or is there a cap on individual book size? (You could still find yourself flooded with large sets of 5mb PDFs, but that's less likely. However, if you don't accept scanned-image PDFs, which regularly run 12-40mb, that should be stated somewhere that people can see it before they sign up. Some epubs are 12mb, if they're heavy with pictures or code.)

Where's your TOS? Under what conditions can someone's account be cancelled, and what happens to their content & their pre-payments in that case?

It was a bug, but now it's fixed.
