I had this app about 5 years ago, and it was a lot better. I remember the interface being so much more user friendly. Today, this app is clunky and a pain to use. I love doing the yearly reading challenges, but when I finish reading a book it's not easy or convenient to add the date I finished the book. It took me way longer than it should have to a) move the book I finished to the 'read' shelf, and b) select a date that I finished the book. Also, it's not fun to have to keep hitting the back button when I navigate to a different page. This app needs help, and it is diappointing that an app for people who love to read feels like it was created with little forethought. I know that when want to look up new books, I make a conscientious effort NOT to use the GoodReads app because it's not quick or user friendly. Please fix this app.
The UI is very dated, the incapability of navigating between "updates", "my books" and "scan" through swipe is very user unfriendly and we should be able to decide if we want the app to open on "updates" or directly unto the "my books" pane. Also, a black theme would be good both for the eyes and for those of us with phones with AMOLED screens which are superior to the iPhone (from where you copy the app) screens.
Bad interface. Really unfriendly and irritating app. Cant search groups easily. Not possible to search book lists. Irritating. Kills whole purpose of the app as i want to discover new books. Irritated that i will have to use the mobile website for this.
I could live with the fact that it's slow and buggy, but the fact that spoilers are not hidden is an awful omission. Spoilers are hidden on the website. Had a book I was intending to read spoiled because the app didn't hide the content.
Why is the Android app so different to the Apple one? I don't understand. Why do they have to be so different when you have much more room to play with an Android. Just a thought.
My favorite social media. However the software development is at best, embarrassing. The UI looks out dated and UX makes one cry. For a while I tried to invite my friends to use it, but after a lot of confused question about how and why this social media looks and feels this way.... The app is even, if possible, more horrifying.
