No keyword search. No "similar books" when looking at book details. No clicking on a list name in title view either. No sort other than alphabetical. Very few cover images. Oh, and no way to set a "home" library. I honestly can't see why a teen would keep this on their phone.
I reviewed the app for use at my library, which is small and somewhat rural. The app is user friendly and seems effective for what it is, except in one regard. Our library doesn't seem to pop up on the locator at all, so I will not be recommending it to my own patrons.
Easy to use and navigate. Love the daily Hot Picks, which are a great way to stumble upon a new book. More reading lists or genre lists would be nice, but the content that currently exists is quite good. My only complaint is the Find It feature. The app draws its information from WorldCat, and unfortunately most public libraries do not list their holdings there so the list on places to find the book isn't super practical. Still, as a librarian who works with teens I can see using this app with my patrons.
Best YA lit app! If you enjoy young adult literature, this app will help you discover new things to read! Also helpful if you are a teacher or librarian who would like to help teens find books.
Easy to Use! Great app to help students find books they'll actually read!
Has no more robust or helpful features than the library catalog--and if teens aren't using that, I honestly can't see them going out of their way to use this. Sorry.
