About this app

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app lets parents/caregivers keep track of their children's reading activity quickly and easily.

- Scan books into your library
- Keep track of reading activity for multiple readers
- Track your progress to 1000 books!

Not terrible for a free app but it needs to have some functionality built in to it. It's 2023. You should be able to scan ISBNs to add books to your list without going through the process of adding it to the library first, then adding it to your reading list. As a library manager, that is going to be what people complain about most when they use the app. I haven't figured out what they are using email for yet as there was no disclaimer in the app. Still going to try it out instead of paper logs.

Tldr, writing your books down with pen and paper would be easier. I'm fairly confident I could YouTube how to make an app and have something more functional within a week. This app is extremely sluggish on a good day. You have to input 1 book at a time and wait half a century for it to load. Things to make this better: 1. Ability to select multiple books as read at once 2. Clean up the app so it's functional speed wise 3. Add a list of books read, and when read

It technically does what it needs to do if all you want is a book list, but it's slow and clunky and not easy to add books. One has to click through so many steps to do anything. The times and dates are wrong and I can't find a way to edit them. It has an achievement section but it never adds achievements and we are at almost 400 books. It needs a lot of work.
