Fine app to do basic GR stuff but has some bugs (android version): - viewing reviews with pictures is imposible, images go over the text. - editing and writing comments and reviews with HTML does not work - writing readingprogress comments does not have a limit. Posting does, so you could post only a part of your message when you use too many characters. And is missing functions: - not possible to 'like' reviews that do not appear on your timeline. - not able to subscribe 'follow reviews' from interesting users - not able to compare books with other users - not possible to look for your version of a book (only when you scan or use ISBN)
I really enjoy Goodreads. It's a great place to keep all your reading needs in order and a great way to find a new book. You can see and read other readers recommendations. There are a few bugs like the messages section needs to have a click all option to delete all at once or at least a more efficient way to delete them without having to click each one. No way to update my reading challenge from the app. Just little bugs that need fixed. All in all, it's a great place for bookies!
I use this site for 2 things: reviewing my books and discovering new ones. I can only do one of those things on this app. Allow a feature to browse books by genre like the one available on the site when you're not signed in. The 'recommendations' page has very few books per genre and I'd like the full browse ability.
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!!!!
The concept is great, the website is great, and the iOS version of the app is great. HOWEVER, the Android version of the app sucks big time! So many things missing and it's setup is just plain awful overall. Definitely miss using my old iPod to view this app. I just wish they would change the whole look to mimic the iOS version. It's ten times better!
For book worms, this app (and website) are great! You can track all the books you've read, are reading, want to read, and find new suggestions. I only wish they would update the Android app! It's been the same, boring, non feature friendly layout for years. The desktop version is so much better, I only wish they would bring the Android app to those standards.
