App works great for tracking books and reading time. Using it to its full potential of tracking start and end times, pages read, and the book title becomes a little much, but the ability is there. The app does seem a little slow to move from page to page, even on fast internet and with a new phone, which is my only reason for 4 stars.

This is a fun way to track reading. I'm giving it 5 stars but there are a few places I'd like to see improvements. I wish there was a "favorites" button & a place for notes. We read an average of 10 books a day with the kids. My eldest is almost 5, so that's 18,000 books. There's repeats obviously but I'd love to be able to easily mark favorites & add notes. I use a notes app rn. 2nd, I wish there was an easier way to add past books. U can add and adjust date, but it's tedious.

I'm just starting to use this app to track reading and activities for our library's summer reading program. I don't know if it's the app or my phone, but it doesn't seem to be formatted correctly. There are letters missing from the ends of words, as well as whole words missing. For example, the buttons at the bottom of the screen read Hom, Log, Discove, and Communit. When I click on Log (I haven't logged anything yet), the middle of the screen reads, "No recent titles to".

Thank you for using our app. Turns out the default font Android Device OnePlus 5T makes our app look pretty wonky! The Solution: Go to Settings -> Display -> Font and change it from One Plus Slate to Roboto. Please contact us at if we can better help.
