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).
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.
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!
Could be great Adding the book to our library before adding it to the read last is redundant. I would like to just add it straight to the list and have it added to the library automatically. Adding a book to each child individually is annoying. It would be much more user friendly to be able to just check which kids read the book and add them all at one. The search feature is a joke. Half the time the books can't be found and when they can be found they often contain no info and can't be added to your list.
Most of the books that I have read to my son can be found, but there are some that are not in the database. It's frustrating because they are new books. Otherwise, I enjoy adding books to my son's list. Being able to add multiple books at once would be a big plus.
Bug fixes and minor updates.
