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.

Update: The devs were able to fix the issue and I haven't had the problem since! Leaving the original review below in case it helps others. I like using this app but there are some annoying issues with it. I usually read in the evenings/night, and even though I know I select the correct date, it often skips ahead to the next day, which breaks my streaks. So I have to then go in and edit the session to be the correct date, which is a bit tedious. Doing this every time gets a bit frustrating.

Update: THANK YOU! Original Reply: Sounds like your site may not be using the correct time zone. If so, we can correct that with a quick flip of the switch over here. Can you contact us at to tell us more about which library, school, or company you're with? Or are you using Beanstack Go?

Not sure why it said I have no current streak and lost my streak on a day when I had hours of reading time.... rather frustrating. Also it seems that there are different ways of seeing different books. Some places I can't see a book I've added, but others I can. I've re-entered a book to log it when it wouldn't show up as on my list, but annoying.
