Bugs, Bugs and more Bugs. I cannot do things like update status and more. Type a progress status then when saving it vanishes and at times happens with reviews too and am forced to use my laptop often. Also from notifications, I click on a group and it takes me to updates. Yes, my app is up to date (at the time I was writing this). Fix all these bugs please; I would like to manage my account from my phone with real time data whenever I refresh or make changes.
Please fix the app The app takes years to load and even then I can't open Notifications and barely able to leave a reading update. It aslo frequently pops the error message and the hell stars over again. Please fix this, I get only frustration from this app :(
Just ok. Was expecting much better. Needs a serious update, material design and UI. Slow, takes awhile for each page to load, and takes too many taps to do stuff. Open app, wait for it to load, tap search, wait, type title, wait, tap book as it shows up in suggestions, wait, tap edit review, wait, tap edit review on the next screen too, wait, tap start date, wait, tap a date, wait, etc...too many taps. Just to add a start or finish date takes 8-10 taps (at least)Then 4 taps to back out of it. Should be able to do all this inside the "shelves"
Great app! I live this app. It helps keep order to all the books I read (which is A LOT!). The only change I would make would be the ability to get onto the online Goodreads site without it trying to shift me back into the app. I really enjoy exploring the main Goodreads page online to look for lists of new books & authors which is not nearly as easy to do on the app. By far, THE BEST feature is the barcode scanner! I don't have to look up the books I'm reading, I just scan them right in!
Not fond of the scanner changes I frequently get incorrect results with the barcode scanner. This app is the main way I would update my books, but I have too many issues with it and I get tired of troubleshooting. I don't use it much anymore. I already uninstalled from my e-reader.
Latest update pretty much ruined this app for me as the main feature I used, the extremely useful multi-scan tool, was stripped out! I loved this feature as it allowed you set a default shelf and then just rapidly scan in books (like when you get in a new shipment of 15-20) and add it to them. Now, they only have the single book scanning, which requires you to manually select the shelf for every single book. Doing that for 15-20 books at a time isn't happening. It was tedious enough for just three that I gave up and just manually entered them. The scanning function was also "expanded" to now also allow you to just scan the cover, except now the scan is slower and often missing when doing a barcode scan. Alas, this latest update was a real step backward for the app. Back to manually entering all my book purchases on the site because typing the ISBNs in is still faster than this "new" reduced scanning function. :-/
