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!
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?
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.
Great ideas, but has some flaws Many of the books that I scan are in the library, but they don't have any leveled information on them. Also, it has been very glitchy and often shuts down so I may be able to scan 2-3 books before having to restart my S3. Finally, if I'm creating a classroom library, I'd love to be able to access it on a computer and even be able to print it out.
Level It I found the app to be helpful. I did have to manually enter most titles which would have been easier on a computer. It would be good to have both app and computer program. Also there is no count for how many books you entered and entering multiple copes of a book is challenging. Over all good app, but would love to see some improvments
- Bug fixes for submitting levels/recommendations from some screens.
- Added a search button on the manual search feature for users with slide out keyboards.
