Ratings and Reviews
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!!
Useful, but buggy
I’m using the app through my library for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge. It’s great for logging books quickly and keeping count! I love that I can scan in most ISBN codes.
However, if you want an accurate log, there are some issues. I’ve logged a past reading and it attributes the reading to the wrong day. If you’re trying to track number of books a day, you may have issues. This evening, I read two books and logged them, but the chart in Highlight -> Completed -> Week shows 0 for today. Sometimes this corrects itself if I close the app, but not always. The log number is always right, but the other data interpretations are often off.

I like a lot of things about it, and most effective is being able to add all members of my family while logging a reading session, but I wish I could do that when logging a past reading session instead of having to add the same book to each members individual log, I also wish that when I mark a book as completed to send to archive it would do that for each member that is part of that reading session, again instead of having to archive each one separately for each family member later. But I love how easy it is to keep track of all the books we read together as a family!

Hello! Thank you for letting us know about your experience with the Beanstack Tracker mobile app. We greatly appreciate your feedback as we are always making updates to the app! Since this past summer, we have released several updates with improvements, particularly logging past reading sessions. You are now able to log a past reading session for multiple family members at the same time. Additionally, when you're logging for multiple readers and mark a book as complete, this change will be reflected for all of the users you selected.
Remember to always have the current version of the app to be up to date and have the best experience! If you need assistance with the app, just let us know! You can reach our support team here: zoobean.zendesk.com/hc/en-us. Best, Claire
