ISBN Lookup

A simple shortcut that searches an ISBN on iBook




What if you’re out at a book store and see a book that interests you but you want to end up reading it on your iPhone or iPad? Then this shortcut is quick and easy is for you! Instead of looking up the book title and trying to find the exact book, try looking up the 13 digit ISBN (International Standard Book Number) on the shortcut and it will easily find it for you.

I had this idea for a shortcut when searching up college textbooks and while some didn’t show up because they’re not available, but one did ended up showing up.

Example ISBN Number: 9780316069359 — This ISBN will link to a book called “The Fifth Witness” by Micheal Connelly.
