Delicious Library is a media cataloguing application for Mac OS X, developed by Delicious Monster to allow the user to keep track and manage their physical collections of books, movies, CDs, and video games.

The software was initially released in November 2004, with $250,000 in sales in its first month.[1] Delicious Library 2 was released officially on May 27, 2008, although the final version was available from March 25. Delicious Library 3 is available from the Mac App Store and the developers website for Macintosh systems running OS 10.8 or higher.[2]


  • Enter media items in the following ways:
  • Integration with Mac OS X's Address Book application to allow "lending management"
  • Voice Search
  • iPod syncing
  • Spotlight compatibility
  • Mini Bookshelf Dashboard widget
  • Printouts of specific shelves or entire libraries
  • Custom Collections allow the user to create their own "shelves" to organize their media.

Easter Eggs[edit]


Delicious Library has received a plethora of positive reviews, having been called "blazing fast compared to its predecessors" and "featur[ing] tighter integration with other Apple apps and services".[3]

Delicious Library's user interface has inspired a movement among developers known as the Delicious Generation.

Mobile Apps[edit]

The only Delicious Library app was withdrawn from the iOS App Store in July 2009. Amazon had asked for the app to be removed due to violation of the Amazon API terms and conditions section 4e "(e) You will not, without our express prior written approval requested via this link, use any Product Advertising Content on or in connection with any site or application designed or intended for use with a mobile phone or other handheld device."[4] NB: The terms and conditions have since been updated.[5]
