BookScanner App is the ideal app for anyone who has to work with popular reading comprehension systems in school. How many times have you had to type in a book name to find out what level it is, or how many points the book is worth while holding the book in your hand?

With BookScanner App, you can quickly and easily scan the barcode off the back of the book to find the critical information you need to know. Your scanned books will save to a history list for easy reference later on. BookScanner will find the quiz number, ATOS (also ZPD) level, points, word count, interest level, and via an in-app-purchase Lexile information as well. Your history can be referenced from within the app, or you can email, print, or share PDF and CSV files of your scanned book list as well.

This is a Universal App with custom screens for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices to fit the specific screen size - including support for iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8Plus, and iPhone SE screen sizes. iPad devices also have support for landscape mode and split view.

Feedback from parents, school teachers, and librarians is that this app is a MUST have!

It WAS great last year

I’m a Second Grade Teacher and I used this app all the time, last year my students even used it with ease. It was so helpful in finding the AR level and number. It hasn’t worked yet, for the 2 1/2 months we’ve been at school. It keeps saying it can’t find the Accelerated Reader site, whether I’m using our schools network or my own personal network or any other network. It used to be great.

*Revision two days later: I deleted the app and reinstalled it, as recommended by the developer. It’s working great now!!! I’m so thrilled. I took my rating from a 2-star to a 5-star!!

I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues. BookScanner is working normally for our other users, so we'd like to help get your device working again. One easy step to try is to tap the ? in the top left of the main screen, then tap the "Reset Search String" button. Try scanning again to see if this helps. If not, please remove BookScanner and reinstall from the App Store. If you continue to experience search issues, please tap the "Email Support" button from the ? screen.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this app because it works effectively as described; but if you want the Lexile number, you have to pay an additional fee!!!

I bought this app to locate the Lexile levels of books that aren’t already listed elsewhere. I’m an Asst. Librarian serving parents of school children, so I look up Lexile levels often. I can’t afford to pay this additional fee for every book!

This rating would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to pay an additional fee for the Lexile numbers for the books.

Thank you for purchasing BookScanner and leaving feedback. Originally BookScanner focused on the AR system and the ATOS level. We hear from many people that were interested in Lexile information, and that AR was starting to use these levels as well. We added the ability to add Lexile information for people who were interested in that as an addon to BookScanner.

There is a small one-time purchase to unlock Lexile level information to cover the cost of adding this feature to BookScanner. This in-app purchase unlocks Lexile information for all books that you have scanned or will scan in the future. To be clear, this fee is not per book scanned/identified.

After unlocking the Lexile information, you should automatically see this information displayed. For any book in your history scanner prior to unlocking Lexile information, please tap the Lexicon button for that book and it should be displayed quickly.

If this doesn't work, or you have other questions, please email us for assistance .

AR reading program

If you’re child does the AR (accelerated reader) program at school this ap is a time saver. It allows you to scan the barcode on the back of the book and you get the reading level, quiz number, title and author. My stress level has been reduced by having this ap on my phone when shopping for books, at the library and for the books we have at home. Love it! I will be telling my children’s teachers at their fall conferences this week!

Thank you very much for the kind words and for sharing the BookScanner story with your children's teachers. We are parents of kids using the AR program and rely on people like you spreading the BookScanner word. Happy scanning!
