Great app!

I love Beanstack. It makes it so easy to track my reading and see what books I’ve read and how far I have left in the books. I love the activities and the serotonin I get from getting achievements 😅 I would love if we could get personalized recommendations based on the books we read/upload onto Beanstack. Obviously I don’t know the ins and outs of how the app automatically knows the books based on the barcode but I feel like it wouldn’t be too hard to incorporate that feature into the app. In the very least, I think it would be nice to give us keywords of the books we read to make it easier to search for similar books. Maybe it could make recommendations for books based on other readers who read similar books. I. E.: i read the hunger games and I’m looking for something else to read that’s similar. Maybe it can look at another user who also read the hunger games and see that they also read Divergent so it recommends that book to me.

Thanks again for your feedback! We just released a new version of the app that brings back the ease of tracking your progress in a book via pages. Now, when you select a new title to log, you’ll see a Confirm Title step where you can turn Track Progress on or off (this allows you to enter the first and last pages you’ve read during each logging session).

You can also turn Track Progress on for a book already in your log by editing the book: the next time you select an already-logged title, click the pencil icon on its cover or click “Edit” in the logging screen with the “Done” button.

If this makes your experience better, we appreciate you updating your review and rating!

Great app that needs improvements

Our library is using Beanstack for their summer reading program since the building is physically closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our entire family is participating. We decided rather than have all four of us have our own account, we would create one account and have four “readers” in the account. What is frustrating is that the app doesn’t let you add a “default” person to your device. For example, every time I open the app, my 13-year-old’s “profile” loads rather than my own, creating the unfortunate opportunity for me to add my books, reading minutes, or completed Activities to his “reader account” rather than mine. At the same time, my 16-year-old’s iPhone, opens to MY account rather than his, and my wife’s iPhone opens to my 16-year-old’s. So it would be nice if Beanstack could add an option to set a default user, or at the very minimum open the app to the last reader account that was previously opened.

Also, I wish you could edit previously added books. For instance, I tried adding a book by scanning the ISBN. However, it wouldn’t scan, so I added it manually. Later, when I discovered I was scanning the book incorrectly, I wanted to redo it, but that would have required me to delete the book and re-add it, thus losing my minutes and pages read.

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.
