Delicious Library 2.0
Delicious Monster has released the second edition of Delicious Library, its personal inventory application. The software catalogs personal belongings in a variety of categories, including books, music, videos and games, and lets users publish the information to the web, or sync with most Apple handhelds except for the iPhone and iPod touch. Items can in some cases be scanned in using an iSight camera, or marked as loaned to friends by dragging to an Address Book contact.
The v2.0 makes a host of major revisions, notably the addition of new categories, including tools, toys, software, gadgets and clothing; in a similar manner, new cover graphics have been included for Blu-ray, HD-DVD and UMD movies, more music formats, and a variety of new and old console formats.
Performance has been improved in several respects, such as through the support of OpenGL rendering, decreased priority on cover art, and improved loading that adds items in under a second per object regardless of database size. iTunes shelves, meanwhile, can be created automatically from an iTunes library, and objects can be sorted under various criteria by using "smart" shelves.
The software costs $40, and requires at least Mac OS X 10.3, though some features may only available on 10.4 or later.
