Like it, but book detection is very unreliable I am using this app to track the books I'm reading to my 1yo son, so we are of course reading many duplicates. I like that you can scan the barcode to find the book, but unfortunately it is very unreliable. To the point where a book I've been scanning since August, when I started using this app, no longer is recognized and a book that I tried to scan before now is. Manually entering a book wouldn't bother me if I could copy it to log it again, but that isn't available. Most books I scan do not come up.
Decent reading log app Supports multiple logs, and can track time, number of pages, and if the child was reading with a parent, etc. Would really prefer an easier input method for time spent reading though. The slider is prone to slipping. If logging at night (EST), the date changes to tomorrow's date for some reason. Also am occasionally frustrated that the lookup library is missing some books but this is admittedly beyond the control of the app developers.
I use this app to keep track of the books I've read. Almost always, I've had to scan the barcode on the inside cover. The code on the back cover does read properly, but the app returns a "can't find book" error. Then I noticed that the code on the back cover is not the same as the code on the inside front cover for most of my books. This is not an error by the app, but something you might want to know. I will say, it is a pain to hold the front cover open and hold the phone steady to scan the code at the same time. I'd like to be able to sort my log by Author and/or Title. I'd give it 5 stars if that feature was added. Also, I'd like the book cover thumbnails to be stored on my phone, so that I can see them when I am at a location where I don't get a signal. The thumbnails can't be more than a couple Kb's each, so storage space shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for a good app. I look forward to some updates. UPDATE 1/29/16:Can't import a saved or backed up log. This app isvirtually useless to me. I emailed the log to myself before flashing my OS, only to find out the emailed log cannot be imported back into the app. Lost 2 years' of log entries. very unhappy!
No goal? I was hoping to be able to set a weekly goal that can be worked toward. Sadly, not a possibility with this app. (That I can see?)
Good app with a suggestion Hi, so far this app seems great. I like that you can manually add the time and amt of pages and how it was read. I was also hoping in addition, there would be a capability to time the amt of reading. Do you think it is possible to add this feature? Then I would 5 star this app!
Book log Great way to keep track of what books my kids have read. I wish there was a way to add folders for each child and add images for books that are manually input.
This version adds support for a few new features most requested by users.
- Added support for number of pages read.
- Modified HTML report to include cumulative pages read.
- Added CSV report.
- Modified Log View to include number of pages read and time spent with each entry.
- Modified time increment slider for tracking time spent to use variable increments:
< 30 min, uses 1 minute increments
> 30 min, uses 5 minute increments
> 3 hours, uses 15 minute increments
