One of the biggest problems with intangible media is how to organize it, remember it, browse it, and enjoy it. Out of sight, out of mind applies to this conundrum. Below are some steps I use to organize digital media and get the most from it.
Using Bento and the iPad is an optimal solution to organize media – primarily books and music in my case. Here are the steps I use to enter music and book purchases so I can find them later. If the books were ordered from Amazon, and are in digital form, the process is simplified a bit.
From Amazon, go to Digital Items and view your Kindle library. You can easily navigate to the purchase page for the book, with a cover image.
From Amazon, capture picture and metadata. Drag cover image into a dropbox folder, with the file name of the image consistently labeled author_title.
Transfer to iPad photo library by using the dropbox app and navigating to the folder you would like to use. Then you can transfer the photos one by one by selecting, sending them to the photo folder. When they are in the photo folder they can be read by Bento on the iPad.
You may wish to keep the Amazon web page open showing the Kindle library so you can access the metadata quickly. Fill in the metadata by hand and you have a record in 30 seconds or so!
