It used to keep my reading time running even when I closed the app, but for the past few days I have to log my minutes manually when I finish reading because the app isn't keeping the clock going. That's mostly what I use the app for, so I hope this gets fixed soon. Update: The timer issue was finally fixed with the latest update. Thank you!

So far the app is good and we love the program it goes with. There are a couple things I would love to see to make the app a little nicer/user friendly. Right now I have to type in the title of the book, author, or the ISBN number. A scanner would be great as some of these are a but long that would make it much easier. The ability to mark a book as love/like would be nice so that parents can see what there kids are enjoying to help them find more they will enjoy. Over all a good app tho.

Thank you so much for your feedback and use of our app! We do have a scanning feature available, it is the small gray box next to where you type in the title that looks like a barcode with a line through it! :) We are sure that your feedback will only help us improve further. Please let us know any other ways we can be helpful. Keep reading!

Great app for tracking your reading. I signed up mainly to take a part in a library challenge "1000 book before kindergarten ." Local library gives my kid a book and a sticker for every 100 books read! Rarely but some books are not registered here, so I have to put them in manually. But it is nice to be able to add the books and even pictures of them. I only wish the pictures would save in the database, so far it seems they're only saved on the user's side.
