Version 1.1.56

With this new release, you'll be able to see the exact number of messages since your last visit to the clubs and general chats, and the library will be sorted to show the books with new messages first. Not only that but the app is fully translated into Spanish now. Some bugs were also fixed, and the overall stability of the app increased

A great idea... want to read a book together ?

Really appreciate that someone took this ‘sweet’ concept and developed an App around it. Because oftentimes we do connect with someone out there who expresses an interest in a read at the same time we do, but we are not physically in the same place ... so where... how to discuss it.

Byzans offers us a way to do that and it’s pretty darn ‘user friendly’. Some things I would like to see:
1. might there be a bit easier way to find one’s most recently read books (scrolling on a mobile is no fun , especially the more books one enters). Maybe at some point one might have an option to arrange by date read rather than alphabetical.
2. A way to edit on a comment... if one makes and error or typo and wishes to correct, presently no way to do that.

Thanks for the kind review and the brilliant ideas to improve Byzans. We're going to work on them!
Edit: you can now edit messages in Byzans.

Book Club without having to go to a book club

I’m really enjoying this new app. The only improvement I see so far that can be made is to allow someone to “react” to a comment, similar to features seen on Facebook, iMessage, and GroupMe.
I don’t always want to have to reply with words, sometimes I want to be able to agree or just disagree with a comment.

Developer Response ,

Thanks Franam11, that's a brillant idea! We'll check how to do it asap :-)

Amazing Concept, Properly Executed

Every time I read an amazing book, I wish I had people to talk about it with. It seemed like nobody was reading the same books as me, so I tried out Goodreads. That app is just plain awful, so I thought the concept of online book clubs wouldn’t work, until I found Byzans!
It has been so much fun to chat with people about our favorite scenes/characters and discuss lore and theories from our favorite books. Plus, the developers are adding new features all the time, I’m so excited for book ratings and reviews.
Shoutout to Simon from Byzans, the hero of ages!
