Works well. If you want to avoid the headache of missing ISBN numbers for different versions of the same book, I would use the manual search with your speech to text. Super fast and much more accurate. You can select the image that best matches your book or the one with the most levelization info, which is what I do. Would love to see "sort by genre" feature and adding multpiple copies of the same book. Would also be awesome if someone could tidy up the levels acrossed different publications of the same book, too.
Good start, needs work I love the idea of this app but it has a lot of bugs to work out. Most books, even very popular ones do not scan. When you manually search for a book there are multiple entire for one book. A lot of the levels are incorrect, especially for the Lexile numbers. I am no longer using this app to level books as it is not reliable enough. I am using other sources to level my classroom library. I am using this to catalog my books. When you search for a book I would like to see "add another copy" as an option.
So much negative! It's an app still in development, there are a lot of books to catch up on (and new books coming out every day). The community helps build the collective information, so contribute! The other features of this app are SO HELPFUL. I love to having the class roster, library, and check-in/check-out feature. Looking forward to future updates, thank you!
Love the idea... But where are all the levels? I got this to try and level my grade 6 students books, but have been very disappointed in the database. Even common books like R. L Stine's "Goosebumps" are not levelled. This data base needs some serious work in order to make it be useful for the elementary teacher.
Good not great This has worked well for me. It has most of the books I searched for but does not always have the guided reading levels. Also, keeping track of the library is awesome however, I'm not sure if there is a way to back up the library. Is there?
Okay - But needs work I love that this app works faster than others when adding books to your library. It has some good features. I'm frustrated by the number of books not found, however. I've also been dealing with TONS of crashes lately. I hope they get the kinks worked out since this app seems to be one of the better one available.
- Bug fixes for submitting levels/recommendations from some screens.
- Added a search button on the manual search feature for users with slide out keyboards.
