Pocketpedia Not Searching

Postby dbennett » Mon Jul 24, 2017 11:06 am

Pocketpedia on an iPhone 7+. Latest auto update of app and iOS.

I had these results with several books.

Enter title, select search, "No items found".
Enter ISBN, select search, "No items found".

I go to my desktop. Latest autoupdate of Bookpedia and macOS.

Enter same titles as I'd entered on iPhone, the item is found.
Enter same ISBNs as I'd entered on iPhone, the item is found.

Thank you for the info. Could you send me a few of the search terms so I can try with the same ones, thank you.

Bookpedia does have access to a much larger set of databases, but with title searches you should be finding almost anything on the iPhone.

Rough Carpentry Illustrated, on back cover ISBN 0-8306-7435-7
Finish Carpentry Illustrated, on back cover ISBN 0-830609434-X

When searching with Bookpedia, a different, extended ISBN is displayed for these books. Even typing that ISBN in on the iOS device does not find anything.

On newer books with an ISBN barcode, I can successfully scan with the iOS device to add a book. However, if I type in the successfully scanned barcode on an iOS device, it cannot be found.
