Good app, but... I really like this app to keep track of the books I read to my littlest ones, and I'm glad that it can keep track of multiple children, but the scanning feature is way too sensitive for us! The reality is that I usually have said children climbing on me while I try to search for a book, and have major issues being perfectly still. (Not necessarily anyone's fault, but it would be perfect if it were easier to scan books).
It's worth the download just so I don't have to keep track of our list on paper, but it isn't very user-friendly. The process for adding books to the library/reading list could definitely be streamlined. Whats the point of the library when you have to search for most titles anyway? Why not just save directly to your reading list and skip the library entirely?
Needs a lot of work Not very user friendly at all. The amount of steps needed to get a single book in the library is a little ridiculous. Many books can't be found in their library, so you have to search, but that never works so you have to enter it manually, which means you have to re-enter everything you've typed. I tap the search bar, tap scan, tap search then immediately tap again so I can enter a book manually. Also if you don't take a picture when you enter the book then you can't add one later. I think I'll pass.
Too Labor Intensive A good idea, but way too many steps to add a book, and many books were not found. If you read the same book to 2 children, your work is doubled. Way too much time for a busy parent.
I was very hopeful for this app. I live the concept, hut the execution missed the mark. Too many steps involved for what should be simple and straightforward. My app has now crashed and we lost all our progress! The library is gone, and I get an error saying "No data send to server. Try again." I am very disappointed.
Reader and Library Disappeared This app is usually very handy but this morning when I went to add the book my daughter and I read my reader list and library had disappeared. Please fix! I don't want to start over!
