Worked as described! Having previously leveled books using computer databases, this is a great tool to get the information as a quick reference. I tested it on a range of books, from classics to recent publications, popular and less commonly known authors and got a hit every time. I'm sure there will be some gaps - there were with the data base as well - but I'm looking forward to using this in my classroom.
Best leveling app I've found This app is the best! I've tried 4 other leveling apps (all for apple devices) and this one for android is hands down the best. I've been primarily using the bar code scanner and it occasionally gives me an incorrect book from the scan, but if I type in the title it nearly always comes back with the book. Sometimes the level is "pending" but it appears to be a work in progress and it's head and shoulders above the other apps and programs on PC.
Leaves something to be desired This app is hit or miss. While attempting to level books for my classroom, scan after scan would result in the incorrect title or no results found. Then suddenly it would find one. They are usualy popular books that it doesn't find. I am a little disappointed I paid this much and still end up using a computer 3/4 of the time.
Just didn't work Maybe the iPad version is different but the app didn't recognize any of the 20 books I tried. No way to manually add either. Dissatisfied and disappointed. I wonder if I can get a refund.
Not the best This app often tells me Web page not available, or gives me a black screen. Some books it recognizes, but not others, with no apparent rhyme or reason. I really don't have the time to make this app work.
Doesn't work I tried this on sever book, and not a single book worked.
