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
The Perfect Companion to Any Book 5/5
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!
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 2/5
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!
Great reading app 4/5
I love this app! It motivates me to read and helps me keep up with where I left off! My favorite feature is the fact that I can see about how long it'll take me to finish reading the book if I keep the same rate. That way I can decide if a book is worth staying up to finish or if it can wait til morning ;)
I think it could be made better with some more features, though, like book categories or at least some way to reorganize your books. It can often be really hard to find the one you're looking for. I also wish you could set a monthly challenge for number of books instead of just for hours read.
Otherwise it's a great app and I look forward to seeing how it improves!
Love it, but... 4/5
i love this app!! i just wish that the books you've read without the app would count in your yearly book goal.
Great app but just a little short of perfect! 4/5
Every penny is worth it! The infographics are fantastic and is great when you are doing a resding challenge. The only thing I haven't been able to do is use the barcode search for my book. It NEVER works, the apo can never find a book using the barcode. I always have to look online or add my own. I just find that sort of inconvenient, but everything else, IS AWESOME!!!
By Frank Jr.'s Boy
Love this app 5/5
I'm a Goodreads user, but once I found this app, I almost forgot about Goodreads... I love the session timer and the info graphic when you finish a book. And buying the pro add on was totally worth it for me. I'm already an avid reader, but this app helps me read even more!
I love it, but it can be better. 4/5
By Jiyee Sheng
If I choose percentage, I can not see the percentage currently, only the pages.
another question, while adding session, why not input the overall percentage, but to read this session? I read books in Kindle, I do not know the percentage I have read this.session.
Thanks. I hope you can realize what I mean.
Good, one issue 4/5
I was really looking forward to setting goals for myself but whenever I click the goals option the app crashes :/
I love this app!! 5/5
This app is worth the money and I highly enjoy it, however the only one thing I would like to add is a timer.
Love It and Suggest It 5/5
By Will Fuqua
I read a minimum of two hours a day and I use this app not only to track my progress but to then share it on Facebook via the app made graphics. My friends and family now can see often I read and which books I enjoy.
Very nice 4/5
I just purchased pro, the app in general very good, i wish you keep developing it, i wish if you add additional way to view "my books" in easer way, flipping is really hard if the books are a lot.
And it will be nice to add share button for every book, which is sharing the photo of the book and under that your 1st thought and quote.
Adding a section for wishlist books including author and publisher name will be great, also an option "to marked as purchased" so we can keep everything in one place.
fall in love with this app 5/5
Sooooo cute and meaningful!
I love this app, it's the only app I use for books.
I suggest that you guys put a tap for books that we didn't finish, that we gave up on. that would be great.
Thank you for the good work.
Wonderful app! 5/5
I have not been much of a reader but this app changed me... it is beautifully designed, has meticulously crafted features, and every bit functional. One feature that is missing, which the developer has committed for a future update, is the ability to backup to iCloud or some other cloud based services. I read first and then make notes... maybe a way to differentiate the time spent for reading and note taking is another feature for the future... great work team!!
Worth the money 5/5
I'm an avid reader and have been since a child. This app helps me so much in not only keeping track of the books I've read but my thoughts, my favorite quotes. It helps me keep a reading goal while I'm busy with school. It's wonderful.
My only con is that I found out they'll charge you a dollar to alter a goal even after you've paid for the use of the app. It seems silly but at the same time I was so outraged at the prospect I left the goal alone. I suppose you can need that sort of "though love" now and again, a penalty of sorts.
Either way I would totally recommend this app to other readers.
good to keep track 5/5
By Angelo Kim
like this app to make my reading more interesting
