After the latest update, the calendar to log minutes is missing. If so, how do I back track to log the previous week? I used to enjoy logging multiple entries at the end of the week because we read every evening for 15+ minutes. With 3 readers it was convenient to log once per week for the whole family, has this feature been removed? If so, I don't find this log very helpful any longer and would appreciate if this feature was restored. Thanks!

This app takes forever to load after entering a title. Our library tracks children's reading by minutes read, and we can finish a picture book in less time than it takes to load the timer after entering the title. The search also can't handle a simple typo or misspelling- you need to enter the title or author name exactly. I do like tracking my entire family's participation in one app, but this one is so slow I would prefer a paper tracker. I wouldn't choose to use this app on my own.

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.
