Ratings and Reviews
Adding book tracker in app
This app would be even better if you could track the books that you own vs what books there are. The online version is way too hard to access and keep track on. I carry my phone everywhere and would love to have access in an app.
I really love the series so this is perfect but there are a few quirks like one time when I was playing the Adventure part it said 13/12 questions correct and another time Anne Frank was yellow and when I got it correct it just picked it up off the screen. Also, a lot of other reviews I read said the app should have a book tracking feature and I totally agree with that.
Book tracking feature?
It would be helpful if this app had a feature that could track the books that were read by the user. I know the website has this but it is not very user friendly. There are so many books in this series, every time I go to the book store, I forget which ones my son has read. It would be extra good to include a way to share/print the list. Also include a barcode scanner to load all titles. Thanks!
