Been using this app for about a week now. I've really, *really* wanted something like letterboxd to be able to track my games. This definitely gets close, and I think I might try to stick with it to see it reach its potential. The *BIGGEST* issue I have: This app (and frankly, even the site) are not snappy at all. It takes a few seconds to load *anything* the site, the app, a game, a review, and that's a glaring issue for me. It sure does look prettier than other tracking solutions, but I cannot stress how frustrating it is to feel like I'm *waiting* to do something in the app. I want that immediate snap! Or close to it. Maybe the art on the games is too high res or maybe the server the site is hosted on just isn't strong enough or whatever, but either way, it makes it so hard to want to use it when I know it's gonna take a minute to boot up, get to what I want to get to, and then do what I planned to do, both on mobile, or on the site itself. Fixing that, will easily push this into the four star range, and good heavens, I would even consider the monthly premium support option, *WHEN* this issue gets fixed. Beyond that, I'd love to see quality of life features before additional features get added. You have to tap 7-9 times to do what you set out to do in the app. This could be vastly reduced with a tap and hold system combined with a drag and release on the "box art". I also think games that you have in a collection should have a visual indicator on or around the "box art" *everywhere* in the app instead of just on your profile so you know what you've added/reviewed/etc. That information, and that quick menu should be usable in every list, every search, etc. Speaking of searches, really wish the search happened "live" instead of searching after I push the button. Did not realize how much I prefer not typing the whole name of a thing lol. Sadly, app optimization speed and these QOL improvements are quite low on the roadmap. I know one person is developing it, but I would settle for it to be more ad supported (with ad free in the elite subscription that I would definitely sign up for) if I knew that meant more developers, quicker/snappier UI and a sped up timeline in the quality of life stuff (before the other, less important road map options). It's so close to being a perfect solution! I hope it can get the push it needs but I can't see one dev doing that in a decent timeframe. But I want to believe. So I'll keep using the app for a few more months and see where it goes from there... TL;DR - It has the potential to beat every other tracking app out of the water. It's rough around the edges. Try it for yourself and see the potential.

Really good especially since it is the only game tracker that has a mobile app as well as a website. It works with no glitches and it gets the job done. Though I would like to request some things. Most of the games I have are multiplayer, so I can't say they are beaten or in progress. So instead I make lists for the games I have depending on the console. It'll be a lot better if I was able to move the lists and games in a different order. Like alphabetical instead of recently added.

Decent way to keep track of what games you're playing or have already beat, and it's nice that you can give the game a score too. I think there needs to be some definite streamlining to the app, such as removing different versions of games (such as a Deluxe version of a game), this makes things way too confusing when choosing which version I should use.
