Cannot add a book without assigning start date :-(
The most obvious feature does not exist. It was perplexing to try to add new books I just picked up from the library before sitting down to read them with the kiddos. Essentially one is stuck picking a start date or the default today is entered. As for the books we read and forgot to scan we have to go through the same process then back date each book it is almost not worth it. I decided to write them down and found it was faster and can take the list to the library to show the same process. They laughed too. All the parts are here in the app just add a button for scan ISBN then add to library of books. Then at least the book is available when the kids pick it out of the stack to read it. Additional add a calendar view to add book I read this week for quick logging. I am not doing this for badges as much as teaching my daughters to keep notes on their progress for themselves.
Feel free to contact me directly for detailed feedback if you are the developer I am happy to help.
So much for feedback the new version is horrible, the user interface is so limited. Most of all the product design team clearly does not use the app everyday and night we have just about given up... tonight we have to re-Enter every book because they do not show up in the recent list... what a complete let down the new version misses he most obvious fixes.
Great app, but could be even better!!
I’m enjoying using this app to track my baby twins’ reading, but I’d love to see it improve a bit more. I’d like to have more books be able to be scanned by the ISBN, as it takes some time to type the title and photograph the book (and then that still doesn’t connect the ISBN to that book in the future, so you have to either re-enter the book or find it in past books read!). Also, I’d love to just easily be able to enter an estimate of total minutes read during a session instead of entering minutes per book. Honestly, the whole app could benefit from quicker (1-2 screen) entries - the quicker the better, especially for parents of very young readers who have lots of small, shorter books that are being read (and not a lot of extra time with said little ones)!! And I’d love to be able to easily view the total number of books read per child on some sort of home screen.
Great start, needs UI improvements
Love that my library is using an app now for books tracking! Love the barcode scanner too. Updates are needed: if a book has a reading log, we need the option to hit a checkmark or swipe to say it’s completed. Example: My library did a program by pages in the summer, so we didn’t mark any books as completed since we were re-reading a lot. Now we are doing a program with lifetime books completed and I have to enter a new log to have the option to mark a title as completed. Also: you have to tap in the exact right spot to add text, it’s not intuitively the whole line or the title for logging past readings. That’s frustrating.
I feel like there are lots more ways to make it easier to log and edit. Every log should be able to count for pages or time or books completed vs picking one and that log can only be used that way. Etc. keep working on it! Love the concept!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
