Amazing 👊🏽

This app helps me stay on top of my reading. The features in this app are truly unique and offer many things that the bigger competitors do not have. Keep up the great work!

So much potential but also has problems

I really like the basic idea of this app and a lot about it. It has every single book I’ve ever searched for, the my library features are great, and I love keeping notes.

The bad...I always find new glitches. Lately, it does not show all of the books that I’ve read in my library. I’ve read 9, but it shows only 4 (while saying at the top that I’ve read 9).

Also, it would be really nice if you could edit the dates for when you read a book. I sometimes forget to enter a book until later, or I’ve added a book I read before getting the app, but it thinks I read the book on the date I entered it in the app and I can’t find a way to edit it.

Developer Response ,

Update March 2020: your concern about books not being able to see your library is addressed. Currently working on the feature you requested. Hold tight 😊

Could you please help us find this crash? We need to know which book, what page number you are updating it to, and did you add a book mark note or not?
