Looking for a cataloging app. Anyone tried Libib?

I'm looking for an app where I can catalog/manage my library and my wish-to-read books. I currently have scattered records on Amazon, Kobo, Goodreads and Google Books, and would prefer a centralized solution.

I've found Libib (https://www.libib.com/), but has anyone tried other solutions?

Haven't tried Calibre?

Your best solution is Calibre.

But isn't Calibre for local ebook collections? I'd also like to catalog books I want to purchase and read in the future.

You can do that creating empty books, I have a library which includes only the books that I know they are going to appear in the future and I search for them to check if they have appeared in the libraries I have the card.

I've tried Libib (web UI only, not the app though) and still prefer LibraryThing, especially for ebooks.

Accounts are free with a limit on total number of items cataloged before they want you to upgrade, try it out for yourself.

You can also download your exported Good Reads file (a csv file) to import to other services/sites, but when I tried this on Libib my results were not good. I think I only got about 1/3 or maybe half imported. YMMV, this was a while ago, maybe it's improved.

LibraryThing technically has an app now, but I think it's quite limited in functionality compared to the web. I only use the app to check my collection, not to do entering or editing of data.
The web UI has power edit mode which I find useful, you can tag multiple selected entries this way.

I've tried LibraryThing and it was awful. I found an error where when I went to put in a book, it came up with details for a different book. I reported this to the librarians and they never bothered to fix it.

Have you checked out The Storygraph? Since you're considering online solutions, I'd strongly recommend giving it a try.
