Loving it; can’t wait for it to get even better!

I’m loving this app so far. I’m excited to see how it improves in the future. So far, my only qualm is that I can’t seem to find a way to remove/delete a book from my collection. I accidentally marked that I read a book I didn’t read (and have no intention to) and I can’t figure out how to remove it.

I love this app!

Whatbook is such an easy and awesome app that makes it so easy to find new reads and get connected in the book community - it has become one of my favorites to use! I would 100% recommend.

Confusing. Search does not work.

I keep looking for books to add to lists and I can’t find them in search. I actually cant find anything in search. I do know these books exist in the app as ive found other users with said books. It haas great potential and i will continue to use it. I love this app so much already, but id like a functioning search tool.

Hello there! The issue you experienced with the search was due to high user demand overloading our servers and an issue that was fixed promptly by our amazing development team. We are happy to report that this issue is now resolved and hope you are enjoying the app otherwise.
