Really handy but not good I love what this app does and that makes it handy but compared to apple's version it is not good. It won't scan to save it's life but since you can search for your book it's not the end of the world. However, the biggest drawback is that you can't sort your library . Now, I am usually not the biggest fan of apple but the apple version let's you sort by reading level, author,etc....That said for finding the level of your books it does ok but it needs A LOT of improving to be worth paying $3 for.
Love it! This is the best app that I have found to use to quickly level my books! I have tried all of them and even waisted money on some! Most of the books are in the database and usually have all 3 levels. If it doesn't have all 3 I can use what information it has to give the book a GR level. I would give it 5 stars but the scanner doesn't work that great, could be my phone. However, it's just as easy to type it in and search. I also love you can add it to your book list.
Not worth it I bought this app in hopes that it would help me level my classroom library a lot faster. Unfortunately this was not the case. I scanned about 100 books. Most of them were found in the app, but did not have any type of book level. I would say that less than 10 books had a level. I ended up searching for most of the titles on the internet, or worse, guessing.
Scanner Doesn't Work Well I had much better luck searching by title. Thank goodness for talk to text or searching would've taken forever. This app provides a service that I need, so I can deal with it. However, they need to fix the issue.
Please update This app never really worked for me. It wont scan books and if it does no information can be found. Completely a waste of my money!
Wasted money Does NOT work Read the previous review. It does not scan any barcode I tried about 5 different books. Very sad and disappointed. After another attempt the scanner did work but no levels or DRA data were displayed for any of the books I scanned: The Chronicles of Narnia, The Children of Noisy Village or Cross Roads.
