Update 11/05/2020- App is now much more responsive which is nice so +1 star. I understand being able to choose the cover, but I think that belongs in a different interface. For example if I want to add a lot of books by an author and search that author, I frequently end up double adding a book. Additionally it's frustrating to add all of the books in a series since you keep having to scroll past duplicates that you are unsure of wether or not you have added.

Edit: We redeveloped all screens, they all now open in less than 1 second. We took up your proposal on the feed, no need to wait any more, it's instantaneous. As for search, the different covers are left there precisely so you can add any specific cover that you want, and still end up in the same discussion. Thanks for helping us to improve Byzans

Surprised that after YEARS you didn't implement even ONE suggestion, not even dark theme!! Uninstalled. ====== I like the idea and the chat option. It also felt like a ghost town, can't click on books and discuss unless I'm currently reading or want to read. Could I choose undecided? There should be a way to filter genres. On the front page three are people who are reading horror and erotica. The two worst genres and I never want to see them. Also it would be nice if there was reading tracking.

Hi Kelly, we have a panel of 20 users who are voting on what should be the next feature. Dark theme is on the list but has never come on top of the ranking so far. Regarding the feed, you can choose to have only the people you follow in your feed. Also, Byzans is free, no ads, no "premium". We cannot develop everything, at once.

Id love if we could share pics. We dont know what room to chat in, first book or last book when talking about a series. Can they have their own channel? Multiple copies of one book is kind of confusing but good they all go to the same channel. I think Moderators would be a good idea too. They could run a series channel, clean up extra book copies, and make sure pics are appropriate. The feed shouldnt refresh when I click an item and add it. You have to scroll all the way back to where you were.❤

Thanks for all the great ideas of improvement! A lot of series have their own rooms like "Mistborn Trilogy", or "Harry Potter". Do you need another one? Write us to info@byzans.com Feed no-refresh when adding a book, we're going to do that soon! Sharing pics, that's a bit more difficult, give us more time 💜
