The scanner is a huge time saver! Took this to our library book sale today to find A.R. books for my classroom. The scanning process saved a ton of time!
Works very well; saves me so much time! I rarely pay for apps, but this one is worth it. I have hundreds of books in my classroom. This app will look up any book on the Accelerated Reader system. (It's not the app developer's fault if some publishers fail to put bar codes on their books.) It's helpful to be able to quickly find the reading level and quiz number for my books. This would get five stars if the word count was included with the lookup result, and/or the results included a link to the A.R. book page. Highly recommended for teachers and parents.
Not so hot Finds half the books you can find on the AR website. iPhone version is half the price and finds all the books.
Ok app Would be nice if the books my daughter reads could be saved somehow. Nice app but wish it would have been free. Not all books my daughter has shows up, I still use the free website to look up books.
Worth it With my kids constantly having to take ar tests it's worth it to be able to scan them. Others have complained about books not showing up, sometimes the book has a barcode on the back and one inside the cover... 99% of the time the app finds it with one of those. I don't mind hunting that 1% 'manually' by typing in title or author. Definitely worth it for me!
Not all book clubs work I purchased this app hoping to scan ANY book to check AR levels! I experienced some issues that wouldn't work with this app. Some school book fair books have different barcodes, therefore they could not be scanned. This app couldn't work for me, but AR Finder is an awesome tool to have. If it works for you, I highly recommend this.
Minor fix to display for some devices.
