Can't recommend books via app, can't select edition (Kindle/paperback) via app can't update a "general status" via app can't search for lists via app or do quite alot that you can do from the website. Other than that it's cool. Edit some time later (possibly years)..... Would like push notifications via app, the sing for recommendations feature is still only available via the website. The app is just no way near as good as the website!!!! Also a "feedback" option via the app might help. There are millions of us willing to give you ideas and suggestions FOR FREE!!!!!! IF THIS APP WAS MORE LIKE FACEBOOK OR TWITTER I'D PAY FOR IT!!!!! If it was any good of course!!!!
I can't view genres or other editions for a book, or, most annoying, I can't see all my shelves when adding a new book, which also means I can't add the book to all the shelves I want to. And it doesn't let me combine shelves the way the website does. Also, I can't view reviews or statuses for people I'm only following, but am not friends with, and sometimes I can't view the whole review or show the spoilers for a review when the case applies. But really what bugs me the most is the problem with not displaying all of my shelves when adding a new book.
This app sucks. It has maybe 10% of the features that the actual Goodreads website has. And these 10% are features are such a headache to use. The app is slow. The app looks uninteresting. Scrolling through stuff isn't smooth. Goodreads need to prioritize improving the app for mobile users, this is the age of mobiles and they don't seem to give a damn about the app.
I do love this app but recently the reading challenge is not adding any of my books that I've read and also my read list too.
So odd: I'd written a one star review and now it's gone? And it said for an older edition, apparently I hadn't updated for eleven weeks (I updated all apps two weeks ago)? Like someone's playing dodgy buggers to massage their ratings? This is a great program but a terrible app that literally gets worse every update - slower and buggier. Sporadically updates without rhyme or reason. I've read three books today, updated them all and only one (the oft neglected middle sibling) made it to the right shelf and reading challenge. Old review: Good to use only if you have access to a desktop to use full site. The app is buggy and looses reviews, updates and dates read... and when you've painstakingly tapped out a review or update only to immediately loose it all, it's clear those are bugs that need fixing because they'll drive most users away.
Sorted by Author doesn't work because all authors names has "by" prefix ;) it should be removed while sorting :))
