Having an issue with the app permissions. I have it set to "allow" for taking photos but it won't let me take any. Everytime I go to grab a picture of the book cover (from my gallery) it says I need to give the app permission. Besides that I think it would be neat if you could click on the calendar (in the streaks tab) and then click on the days and see what books you've completed/logged on that day. Overall I do love this app, but it's definitely lacking in some places unfortunately

I love the ease of scanning books and having it keep track of the amount I have read. I also love it during the summer to help stay on track with the summer reading programs for my kids and I. I might like it more if I set reminders. I don't know if they have that but just a simple daily reminder I can chose to have on and when to display.

Absolute garbage! Takes a minute to step through 6 to 8 steps to get to scanning the barcode on the book, and every time you do the app immediately crashes and closes. Forcing you to redo it again. I know it's all the book it shows the picture and name before it crashes after 10 tries per book, with several phone reboots mixed in there... I give up. Going to drop it from the phone
