Bookshelf

App icon

Android app that uses the Google Books API to let you search for book titles and/or authors, which you can save to a wishlist (WIP).

Please note that the screenshots below are for demonstration purposes only. The actual app may differ slightly in terms of design. In the event of a major design change, the screenshots will be updated.

Screenshots

Currently, you can only search for book titles. The wishlist part of the app is still under development (only possible to save the book title and authors for one book right now).

Min SDK version: API level 21 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)

This app has been tested on a Pixel XL running Android Pie (API 28).

Features

  • Search for a book title and get a list of the top results showing the book title, the corresponding author, the rating of the book on Google Books and the number of ratings

  • Find out more information about a book (number of pages, publisher and published date)

  • Voice search

And more on its way!

Setup

Add your Google Books API key into a String in an enum called API in the default package. The String should be called key.

E.g.

public enum API {
  ;
  public static final String key = "[your API key should go here]";
}
