BookWatch Free - Save time finding new releases.

Alexander Pepper
Why check for new book releases from your favorite authors yourself? Let BookWatch do the work for you!

• iAd supported version

To get started, just tap the add button start entering the author's name. BookWatch provides author suggestions to make adding new authors a breeze. BookWatch then downloads the author's entire book and audiobook catalog and finds their latest release. Use the editing view to manage which authors BookWatch will check for.

After you've added your favorite authors, just tap the refresh button to check for new releases. Simple, but if you love books, BookWatch will save you lots of time!

BookWatch now features iCloud integration to store your author list. This means two things. First, your author list will be synchronized between your devices. Second, even when the app is deleted, your author list remains in the iCloud and is restored when BookWatch is re-installed.

*Notes:
Unlike music and audiobooks, there is currently no way an app can detect what authors are already in the device's iBooks library as iBooks is separate from iOS.
Also, unlike iBooks, there is also currently no way to retrieve audiobook descriptions.
