Delicious Library

Delicious Library

A couple of months ago Think Secret spilled the beans on Delicious Library, an overhaul of a simple media cataloging program by a new company formed by ex-OmniGroup employees. The screenshots they posted revealed an iLife-like app designed around making it dead-simple to inventory your books, movies, music, and games.

In the past, creating such an inventory involved hours of data entry and organization. Delicious Library integrates with iSight video cameras (or any QuickTime-compatible digital video camera) and Amazon’s web services to completely obliterate this hassle. Simply hold your book, DVD, CD, or video game up to your iSight and within seconds the item is added to your inventory, with all of the relevant data pulled from Amazon.

The company, Delicious Monster, published their revamped website this weekend which features overviews of the software and their company as well as screenshots of the app. It’s a brilliant combination of technologies and I’m really looking forward to trying it out.

[Update: The site now works with Firefox, Mozilla, Camino, NetNewsWire’s embedded browser, etc. Let the healing begin.]
