Ratings and Reviews
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!
Where are the notes?!
UPDATE: I am absolutely devastated. The only reason I used this app was to keep track of the books I read and store in-depth notes from reading them. With this new update, my notes all appear to be gone!!! Please tell me there is some way to find them or get them back. You should have warned users if you were going to take away notes.
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 October 2020: we apologize for doing things this way. We are working on bringing back fully featured notes feature. You can expect to have it by the release after the next one which will be soon!
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?
Worked well until a recent update and now it has all kind of stopped working. Books just seem to leave my “reading” category and now I can’t even add new ones to that section. Or update them. I have finished a book and still receive notifications weeks later that I am scheduled to read. I can even try adding it to the things I’ve read and it still won’t work. Update would help!
