Please fix "Date Read" 3/5
When selecting a book from you Currently Reading shelf and hitting the "I've finished this book!" button, the Date Read on the book used to be updated to the current date. It no longer does this as of this most recent app update, and it's driving me nuts. Please fix it so I can have my books sorted accurately!
Love it 5/5
Every reader should have this app.
Good Recommendations! 5/5
The app is a great way to share and view recommendations of all kinds of books. I really enjoy it!
Very helpful 5/5
It is a very helpful app and helps me find tons of great books to read. It also helps keep me organized so whenever I go to the bookstore i just open my want to read list and all the books that I should get are there. Only thing I don't like is it keeps bringing up more in my books that I should read and I love them all so much and I can't choose which ones to get. That has nothing against the actual app it is merely the fact that I am addicted to reading. Love the app it is highly recommended for those of you that need help finding a fantastic books.
Great way to track books, less functionality than web 4/5
I love Goodreads! It's fantastic to have access to my shelves on the go. My only issue is that the app lacks some of the functionality and features you can get on the full site (namely quotes).
Great App 2/5
I like this app, but it has been a pain when iOS updates, and a real pain when GR updates it.
It does not let me see my notifications. One day notification works, the next day no notifications.
I wish the app worked offline as well..at least to add titles you've read and those you want to read.
Decent, but some suggestions 3/5
So the app is alright, but I think it could be better. For one, instead of randomized lists, could you make it so we'd be able to search for lists we want to look at (like on the website)? Also, could you make an option for want to re-read, or be able to put a book in the read AND currently reading sections? I have to read Animal Farm in school, but I already read it, so it would be nice if you had that option. Also, I don't feel like the recommendations are very accurate, but maybe that will change as I rate more books.
Highly Recommended 5/5
By Ur mom6969
The best book tracking app out there!
I basically use this to keep track of my books, and it is also good to read the recommendations when deciding a book. And recently email offering deals on Kindle books is really nice.
Awesome app 4/5
Great app! 4 stars because the 'groups' feature is buggy; not all the text is visible, & finding recent posts isn't very easy. Do we really have to *scroll* through ALL the posts?
Otherwise, though, I love it!
Must have for book nerds 5/5
Everyone who like to read need this app/website. It makes is extremely easy to keep track of what you want to read/have already read. Also, you can see reviews and write reviews of your own, follow your favorite authors, recommend books to friends and get recommendations based on past books you've tracked. I will never search for books without using this app again.
Don't like the upgrade 2/5
Ever since the upgrade no books link to my Facebook page. The linking to Facebook finally was fixed a while back, and now it's happening again. Links to Facebook don't appear on my Facebook timeline.
Love it! 5/5
Great App! Wonderful suggestions that for my genre of choice while keeping my list of books that I have read and want to read very organized. The reader's reviews are also very helpful I. Helping me choose the books I want to read. I have not been let down yet!
I love goodreads! This app helps me keep track of the books I am reading, the books I have read and the ones I want to read. When searching for new book ideas I like the website more than the app which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
Love this app! I never know what to read and this is great for checking things out that are outside your zone. I do wish in the update your progress option for books currently being read there was a chapter option. I listen to audio books while at work and it's hard to figure out the percentage of the book you've read and you definitely don't know the page count.
Mud have for any reader 5/5
Love what they are doing here.
Love it! 5/5
Keeps track of all the books I read in a year and the ones I want to read.
Very handy but full of glitches 3/5
By Pic Chava
I use this app to get ideas of books for my 12-year-old daughter. We review books she's read and then they recommend other books based on books she has read and liked. If I search for a book, I can see books written by the same author and other books that readers of the first book liked as well. Allows me to mark a book "want to read" and keeps a list. When I want to request more books at the library I refer back to this "want to read" list.
However this app has a lot of holes. I've had technical issues with it not updating my "read" list at all so that books I've read show as read when I search for them but they don't appear in the "read" list. and other times the books I marked as read don't update immediately to the "read" list but do so later. Also the "currently reading" list doesn't always show up in "My Books" tab.
Under "My Books" tab when "Currently Reading" does show, it says I'm currently reading three books but only shows one of them. To update another book I'm reading I have to search for it.
Can't delete books from the to-read list if you change your mind. Also if you mark a book as "currently reading" and then decide not to read or finish it, there's no way to remove it from that list.
There is no "middle school" genre. There is only children's and young adult. Books for middle schoolers do not belong in these categories. I then found a "middle grade" genre listed under a particular book but this genre doesn't appear in the whole list of genres to choose for recommended books.
It's awesome ! A lot more to it then I thought! 4/5
It's a lot more than just Yelp for books .. I really like how you have a reading "profile" where you can add and rate the books / authors you've read and that your in the middle of reading and how it recommends novels based on your interests and books you've read.. I think it's great
Great app but... 4/5
It crashes every time I try to add individual friends from Facebook. If that could be tweaked I could give this 5 stars, because that's seriously my only problem. Thanks!
Using often, love it 4/5
By Corporate watchdog
Didn't think I'd use this app that much but I really enjoy using it I think it's user-friendly and straightforward
Best way to keep track of what you're reading and remember what you think about books you've read
Great app 5/5
Love the recommendations
Love the website. Dislike the app. 3/5
Goodreads is the only website I use to rate books, find new ones, update my reading progress, like quotes, etc. But the app isn't as good as the website.
I miss liking quotes on the app (when I'm reading I like to save the quote asap). Also, the app wouldn't let me upgrade my progress!
And I think it would be really cool if there were a feature where we could time our reading and do other user friendly things. I'm not leaving Goodreads, I just wish you had a better app. :)
Love this app 5/5
I love being able to see all the books I have read. My biggest problem is remembering to put them in here. lol I also love that I can see what friends have read. Great concept. Thank you a Goodreads!!
App has some glitches 3/5
By Chicago Kate
I use this app often. I love being able to track books I have read, and also to flag books I want to read. I also greatly enjoy seeing what my 'friends' are reading. They only thing about the app that makes me nuts is that in my 'Read' list, the completed books in 'Date Added' and 'Date Read' do not match. Seems not all the completed books make it over to the 'Date Read' list which frustrates my obsessive self.
Found Goodreads to be more useful than anticipated 5/5
I like the recommendations area of Amazon and thought that Goodreads would be just an expanded version. But it has more professional reviews, interviews with authors, news about upcoming books as well. I like keeping track of books here and seeing what are the popular books in other categories.
I recommend the app.
Ok but nothing to get excited about 3/5
A fine way to keep track of books you want to read unless you wish to continue to scrabble on loose scraps of paper. Suggested readings are better than Amazon, which seems to prefer to tell me to buy what books I've already read. Some things are unnecessarily difficult to locate, like what book giveaway you may have entered, and the app doesn't seem to allow you to correct another's mistake in a book entry or add a photo. It's adequate but not exactly the greatest thing since sliced bread.
By ValeretteEasy to use.
I enjoy being able to categorize my books, browse friends' shelves, and set challenges for myself. Great app.
My kind of social media 5/5
By Crafty mom in waiting
Great place to go and find new books, authors and people who share your love for books. Yes I'm a book lover, and I'm so grateful for this app!
BOOK SHELVES 4/5
WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO EDIT OUR BOOKSHELVES' NAMES AND/OR DELETE BOOKSHELVES WE DON'T WANT ANYMORE. PLEASE.
Love this app! Helps me organize my reading material, set goals and find new books to read! Thanks for such an amazing app!!!
Love it 5/5
This app is great. Instead of of constantly having to log in I can just go to the app and write my reviews and anything else that I need to do
I'm so glad I discovered Goodreads! 4/5
I'm on Goodreads several times each week at least, and often every day. I'm a book junkie and a lifetime reader. I like discovering new books and exploring unread titles from authors whose work I have enjoyed in other works. This is my go to source for new books to read and information on favorite authors.
Love this App 5/5
A friend of mine told me of this awesome app that would keep me in touch with other bibliophiles. Goodreads offers the opportunity to keep track of books you read, books you want to read and the opportunity to see what others are reading. There are quizzes, book offers, challenges and much more. The best part is the book clubs and the opportunity to exchange questions with your favorite authors. Love this app!!!!
Best app!!! 5/5
By Sam Alvee
My absolute fave when I'm stuck on figuring out what I want to read next
Great, but recently crashes. 3/5
Recently I have been experiencing crashes when I try to open someone's profile
Helps me find my next read! 4/5
Love Goodreads! It's like walking through a library, but only in this library you can walk up to everyone and ask them what they think about the book they're reading.
Love it! 5/5
Great app that makes it easy to keep track of all my books.
Great way to track books you have read and want to read. The database is extensive
Im a fan 5/5
Wonderful place to keep track of your ever expanding library of book experiences!
Awesome app 4/5
Useful. Easy to use. encyclopedic.
Recommendations function still needs some work.
I wish I could integrate with my library site.
Love goodreads, app only so-so 3/5
Obviously five stars For Goodreads itself. I am on the site weekly.
The app, however, is fairly limited. Writing and editing the reviews is problematic, nor can you see spoilers.
It will get the job done if you just want to check out book descriptions, etc. But if you're an avid Goodreads user like I am, this app will leave you wanting.
Great app!! 5/5
This is such a great app for book lovers like myself. Gives you suggestions on books you might enjoy, allows you to write a review on a book you've read & keeps track of both books you want to read & ones that have already been read, plus I like the little challenge you can set for yourself each year as far as how many books you think you could read.
I like being able to see the chronological order of McCall Smith's different series. Unable to find that info elsewhere.
Encourages me to read more 5/5
Great app. It encourages me to read more, and helps me keep track of stuff I want to read in the future.
Fabulous social network for book lovers 5/5
Great way to track titles you want to read and see what friends are reading
Best Book App Ever! 5/5
I love how easy it is to keep track of all the books I have read, want to read and follow what my friends are reading for more wonderful books to enter my life!
This is Imdb for books, but here movies take much longer to finish. Great for tracking, discovering and sharing thoughts
Good Recommendations 2/5
This app has amazing recommendations and I also like how you can rate and review books. Something that I'm hoping to start doing soon.
This app has a lot of things that need to be upgraded and added.
