Can't Recommend 1/5
Unfortunately, I can't recommend this app. Earlier this year, I encountered the bug that deleted all of my data, with no way to get it back. This was bad enough, but now, there seems to be another bug: all of my goals have been deleted, including the yearly goal I've been working on since January. For these reasons, and the fact that at least the first one could have been avoided with better testing prior to the update's release, I cannot positively review this app.
Icon changing 5/5
I don’t get it why did you change the icon ?
The previous one was so cute !
Perfect for tracking reading 5/5
Definitely worth the purchase. No longer will I have to write notes inside my pages and with modern technology I always have the notes available. Only complaint is recent update crashes and the app is no longer working. I hope this is temporary.
Excellent app; improvement suggestions 4/5
I love this app. I use it almost every day. There are many things I love, but there is one thing I'd like to comment on:
Thank you for including a countdown timer. It was one of the things I wished this app had. But I have one rather large problem with it. I have no way of knowing when my countdown is complete. Please add an alarm sound so I know my time is up! Otherwise, the countdown timer is useless because I have no way to know I need to stop reading.
latest update keeps crashing my app 1/5
not sure if it’s just me.. but ever since updating the app it’s been crashing on me... it opens then closes right away... help!!
Excellent to improve reading 5/5
Update: Latest update is excelent, love all the new additions.
Best reading app out there. The app design has a lot of personality, and it helps and motivates you to read more daily. It makes reading super fun. Stats, goals, achievements are great and the app works perfectly. If you wanna read more, get this app now
The Perfect Companion to Any Book 5/5
10/18/17 - still using this app everyday to track my reading progress. Love the new graphic that shares your reading progress as you’re going through the book!
— — —
7/23/17 - still using this app everyday to track my time reading. Love it!
5/9/17 - still using this app everyday and it's a wonderful adjunct that facilitates the tracking of each book I read. Would love to see some ability to customize the data that is generated in the infographic.
4/4/17 - still love this app, love the continuous updates and am now looking forward to trying out the Apple Watch app!
1/10/17 - wow that was quick, and what a great update. This app just keeps getting better. Love hat you can now log percentage read, this makes it easy to use in conjunction with a kindle and also audible audiobooks! Can't wait to see what is added next!
I absolutely love this app and the statistics it generates based on my reading. Haven't finished my first book with it yet, but the info graphics I've seen generated look great. Would love to see the developer create a way to backup/extract our data from the app as well. Hope there are more updates in the pipeline!
Love it but... 5/5
This app has everything great graphics, great search engine to find a book, a timer to time yourself, reminders, statistics on how far you at on finishing the book. Love it... But I believe is for someone that has a habit on doing this everyday and everytime. And I have notice that I don't do it and I usually forget on putting where I'm at in the book,or use the timer and read my statistics and all that. It's an amazing app would recommend it especially with the prizes for more slots to put your books the app comes with 10 slots which is more reasonable then one. Sadly, it's not for me I think I will just stick with goodreads although even there I don't sometimes put the books I'm reading or what page I'm at. 😂
great appp but 5/5
i love the app i have the pro version but
i want to sync it with other devices
and i read e-books
why it doesn't allow screenshot to paste it in the quote area
and i switched to a new iphone it failed to synchronize my books so do i have to do it manually?!
i love this app but i can never use it because it constantly crashes right after i open it! needs to be fixed immediately
I never new this even existed until I saw this app on Twitter and I thought I’d give it a try and long and be hold I’m using it a lot.
I hate to say this but ever since I’ve downloaded this app, I’m finding myself reading 📖s that I’ve not read in a very long time. With the reminders I pick up the book and find that I can not put it down.
I absolutely love ❤️ where I can put the page # down to where I’ve stopped and I can just go to that page. That’s if I remember to pick up the book 📖
Great app 4/5
By Frank Jr.'s Boy
I really enjoy this app. The visuals are very nice!
The one issue I have is that the time isn't accurate all the time. For example, I started a session today when I got to work (8:00) and four hours later it said my session lasted 6 hours. Happens very frequently. This could be a big deal to some, but it's not that big of a deal to me. Just makes it seems as though I read slower than I actually do lol
I absolutely love this app! 5/5
By Cool piol
This is an amazing way for children to start wanting to read. They can earn badges, and see how fast or slow they read! Thank you!
Great app 5/5
Been using it for several weeks now and I really like it so far. Clean and easy to use.
Great! Needs Improvements. 4/5
This app is fairly new so I know there’s some room for improvement. First off I’d like to say that so far I am enjoying the app and it’s features. The few things I’ve noticed though are the glitches in the system as far as refreshing goes. Not many books are on the site with photos (I’d greatly appreciate that being fixed) and I think there should be separate tabs for books you’ve read, you want to read, etc. having them all in one place is a little obnoxious.
Used to love 4/5
App no longer lets me set new monthly reading accurately. When I reach the goal and set new hours to read for the month, graph says I’ve read five hours already. Am considering deleting even though I paid for it.
UPDATE: Thanks to developer for prompt response. Issue was corrected. I can keep track of my reading once again. The goals are great motivators. One possible improvement? More badges!
The best book tracker 5/5
This is one of my favorite apps, and I use it almost daily to track reading progress. The Apple Watch app is especially handy. Recommended!
Motivating and Intelligent 5/5
The application is simple and intelligent, helping me keep my reading habits. Easy to log your readings and gives some Awesome statistics if you are a stats-aholic like me.
I Don't Write Reviews Often... 5/5
But when I do, the app is definitely worth your time to at least try it out.
Great for reading 5/5
This is one of the few apps I've deemed worthy to pay for. I really liked the free version and I was really glad they had a somewhat inexpensive paid version that was a one time buy. Because of this, I recommend this app to my other friends who love reading.
Greatly improved! (Update) 5/5
Many changes have taken place since my last review and I really think they have put effort into making adjustments that have certainly improved the app.
Although i believe there's always room for improvements, I really haven't faced any issues with the app and all the features I could have considered nice-to-have/ useful have been implemented
Thank you very much for listening to your users.
I really needed something besides Goodreads to keep my books organized while at the same time being able to bookmark where I left at. The addition of "quotes" and "thoughts" is perfect since it allows me to add any extra notes as i read. The app just launched and generally is great. (Love the design btw)
However, it is still kind of limited and rigid. I see that the books have a set amount of pages when you add them, but it should be taken into account that the total amount of "pages" change depending on the format and device that the book is read on. Also, why is there no option to edit the pages you have read?
*Add an option to change the amount of "total pages" in the book
*Allow us to edit the pages that have been "read"
*Implement a timer - not a stopwatch (like the current one) - that allows to set a certain amount of time we want to read for.
Love this app!! 5/5
I love this app. It helps me keep track of my reading and it allows me to set goals monthly and yearly.
Love it. 5/5
I like the trends I can see with my reading by using this app.
Excellent app to track your reading! 5/5
I have tried many apps before to track my reading but I do love the way this actually tracks my TIME reading. Also love the achievements - would love to see more! For an avid reader, this app is a must have!
My favorite reading app 5/5
I've never had any problems with this app, I stay current on updates. Just started using it in January and it's my favorite app. I love the infographics. Bookout really helps me stay on top of my reading goals.
Continuously deletes my data 1/5
I've added and re-added several books only to have them deleted and my stats/data with them. I wouldn't have paid for premium if I'd know this would happen
It won't open 1/5
By Riccardo Lorusso
It crashes when I launch it.
Great app. 2/5
Bookout is a great app! That was when I first started using the app....
Now, seven months later...... Unfortunately after about seven months of use, it lost all of my data (actually most, not all). Needless to say, I am very disappointed and will not be using the app again until this issue is resolved. I also downgraded my review.
Deleted data 1/5
After the iCloud update, some of my books were deleted 😡
Lost all the data (like everyone else) 1/5
By Hami b987
After using the amazing app for 2 months, one night all the sudden I lost half of my data, same as everyone else, I wish I knew about this before purchase. Please fix or give me back the money.
This is a great app to read on. I love tracking my reading time and pages read. It's good to keep track of school books on. I wish we could write reviews on it that other people could see. I also I wish we could collaborate with others on comments about the books we read.
Good program but bug deleted my data 1/5
I'm an avid reader and I enjoyed Bookout's ability to help me track my reading. I bought the premium version in Jan 17 to track my reading for that year. Sadly, seven months later the app had a bug that erased all my data. When I contacted the developers they had no way of recovering the data. I requested a refund of my purchase since what I'd paid for was completely lost and never heard from them again. I won't be using the app anymore to track my reading because I don't trust that this won't happen again. It's a nice app but in the end I was quite disappointed.
Updated 7/24 now all my books are gone! 1/5
I used to love this app but it lost everything. How do I get it back? I even got the pro version because I liked it. What happened?
Keep working 3/5
I appreciate the improvements the last couple months. I did not have an issue with the cloud wiping my library info, but...with the last update, now all my books are doubled. It seems all the tracking data doubled too. I got a notification that I finished my year goal of 30 books, but I've only read 15.
Like the app a lot, but keep working please.
Still lacking 3/5
By Anonymous 172639599
I love this app - I love being able to track my reading stats. However, they definitely need to work on a better way to save data, as I don't use iCloud. Being able to create an account would be awesome, so that our data can be saved and accessed. That's really the only complaint. I hope they fix this soon, as there is no point to a data-based app that doesn't have a better way of keeping data.
Five months of data...gone! 1/5
Well, I guess it was fun while it lasted. I'd been using Bookout faithfully, every single day, since February. The stats were useful and interesting, and I enjoyed keeping track of my reading, then being able to look back and discover trends, etc. With this update, all my data is gone. According to the other reviewer, irretrievably. I guess I'm done. I can't recommend an app that is so vitally dependent on data, with which the developers appear to have such a cavalier attitude. It was a good run, but I'm out.
A fantastic app for people who enjoy reading! 5/5
I read a lot, so an app that tracks how long i've read for helps a lot. I also like that it tells you what page you left off on. 5/5
Love this app, but it just wiped out my history 4/5
This is probably the second most used app on my phone, right behind overcast. I LOVE it. But for some reason I opened it today and wiped clean all my history. It's not too big of a deal because I use goodreads to track my reading as well, but it was still kind of annoying.
All data deleted 1/5
By Books: a true story
I opened this app today after the update and it deleted all my data! I've contacted them but I have no idea if this is fixable. All my books, my reading speed, my charts - all gone. UPDATE: they have informed me that this data deletion is permanent caused by an iCloud bug. These app developers are irresponsible and I wouldn't bother using or paying for this app since you can't trust them to keep your data safe.
My favorite app with 1 issue 4/5
I love this app so much this is the first and only app I bought. However, for some reason it won't let me see my infographic. Whenever I click on it the app crashes. Also a suggestion would be to be able to add book you haven't yet read but want to read.
Thank you for this apps I love it 😊
I really enjoy this app because I like to see how long it takes me to read an entire book. It helps me ballpark how long it will take me to read a book of similar length. I use Goodreads to track reading as well and this pairs nicely with it.
Prior to this update... 3/5
Prior to this update all was well, my history was saved (or so it seemed). Then I opened the app today after yesterday's update and my history is gone other than the two books I added last night. Total bummer! Hopefully nothing gets deleted going forward and my history can be restored
Delete all my book! 1/5
This new version deleted all my books, super angry
Deleted all Data 1/5
Opened the app after the new update, and everything is gone. Reading history, past books read, everything. No word from developer.
No longer crashing and back to tracking my reading. Yay! Love the infographics the app generates.
all books duplicated with recent update 3/5
well here's an annoying bug: every single book in my library has been duplicated in the carousel after the update.
It crashes at the start
Great app!! 5/5
By Music Listener101
Perfect for any avid reader!
By Mick WII
I love it because it has made me a more disciplined reader! Id like to be able to see how often a goal is reached with more statistics. Maybe able to set more goals simultaneously. A way to switch back and forth between or separate sections of read and books in progress instead of just hiding them. Average reading time per day. An indication of how many hours and may minutes till my goal is finished. Just more stuff would be cool though it's great.
Absolutely great 5/5
It's got everything one looks for in a book tracking app. Infographics, analysis, and so much more; and with awesome visuals. Top notch!
