A frustrating experience The recommendation feature doesn't work well in this app at all. There still isn't a 'not interested' option, a fairly obvious and basic addition if you ask me. Also, there isn't a way to get to a book page directly from recommendations. Instead you have to search for the book by typing it into the search bar. Aside from that it's a fairly slow and laggy experience navigating pages.
Love App..But.., As you and Shelfari are now combining, will you be incorporating some of their ideas such as the literal bookshelf!? One of the things I loved on Shelfari was that. And what about groups!? I shouldn't have to go online in order to access any groups! My only gripe was that I was supposed to be able to transfer my bookshelf adds from Shelfari to Goodreads! It never did it!!! Why!?
My own private book club This app has become pretty much sole way of finding new titles to read. I can see what friends are reading, have read, or recommend, and can also search withing genres for titles that I like (sci-fi in my case). The social media aspect is nice but not necessary to actively contribute to if its not your thing. The layout is clean and intuitive. Thank you for creating this free resource!
I DON'T CARE WHAT'S TRENDING! Seriously dislike the trending items in the update feed. I loved this app 2+ years ago, and still really liked it before Amazon started messing it up. I do not find the updated app user friendly. I mostly use it to record my books and look up books I might want to read. The friend feature and updates are secondary. Also disappointed there are zero options to personalize it in the settings! Way to take something awesome and commercialize into mediocrity.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Android Lollipop .......***UPDATE***....... (I like the new update, and how we can see other books in the series. This is such a time saver.) I have my Facebook, Twitter and Blog all linked to my Goodreads account, but the app only posts to my Facebook.
Too slow No matter how often this app gets updated it still takes forever to load any book you're searching for. I always end up using the desktop. I love goodreads; I just wish it was consistently user friendly.
