It's one of my favorite media apps, love keeping big tracking the background one I read and those my friends are reading. It continues to struggle to translate to FB...after as many years I would think they would have worked their issues out. However all in all, still like the app.
Trouble loading home screen 3/5
I like the app and all, but recently it seems like my home screen doesn't load most of the time (about 8 times out of 10 if I had to guess) I open the app. When I do open it, it just never moves past the quote. I can do everything else on the app just fine, but I shouldn't be so excited when I actually get to see what my friends are up to, you know? This problem persists even if I force close the app and immediately open it again. It also doesn't change if I turn off wifi or not. It's pretty frustrating.
Love It 5/5
It's a fun little app for book geeks. It's awesome.
Why are there ads?? 2/5
How can I remove the ads? Can I pay to have them removed? They're so annoying.
I use it, that's the best recommendation 4/5
I have been using the ap for two years now. It helps me keep track of what I want to read. I don't use the social functions. But the ratings are helpful. But it is one if a very few apps that I use on an ongoing business.
Good app 5/5
By Hattie Belle
Works well and the presentations are pleasing. I enjoy using Goodreads. Thanks.
Most useful app! 5/5
I love Goodreads! It allows me to stay organized: which books do I want to read next and which books have I read before. And I can see what my friends have read and how they reviewed the books. I also like that they have yearly "best of" awards so I can see the most popular books in all genres. I've used this app every day since I downloaded it!
Great app, recommended 4/5
By Tran N
Goodreads is an awesome app. I especially love the scan book function, as I can find books very fast when I go to the bookstore. However, it's annoyed me sometimes when I read the review of the books, and some pictures do not load! Other than that, cool app
Great App 5/5
Fantastic App for keeping track of the books I read and what was already read
By S4mmy 55!!!!!!!!
Absolutely love this app
I love how I can keep track of what books I've read (along with ratings and saved reviews) and what books I want to read. I appreciate the average ratings of books to help me determine which book to read next. I also like how I can see what books my friends have read and reviewed.
I understand that the friends data are collected from Facebook but I don't like how Goodreads updates me on what friends my friends have accepted. To me, that doesn't seem anything related to reading and unnecessary social media. If I wanted to know that information, I could just log into my Facebook app.
I also don't like how reviews are seen by popularity (likes and comments) rather than it being the most recent. For example, the Yelp app has reviews that seem to be displayed by most recent (unless for both it is set by settings). Is there a way that both can be seen at the same time (popularity and most recent)?
Muy buena app para seguir libros y encontrar recomendaciones 4/5
El hijo de safari la primera app q conoci para lectores. Es más evolucionada.me gusta aunque no tenga español como idioma posible para la app
Great app! 5/5
Highly functional app that organizes your personal library electronically. Keep tract of what you've read, what your friends are reading, and research potential next reads.
Great app! 5/5
Love how you can see descriptions for any book you want and reviews and ratings and can also make your own list for books you want to read or have read.
I use it daily 4/5
Great app. Love the suggestions it gives me. Great to connect with other readers.
Movie it 5/5
I love to have this so when I'm in a book store I know what book I need next in a series or what author I like
A suggestion 4/5
I use Goodreads faithfully. I find it an excellent resource. I do, however, wish the ratings could expand to include half stars. So many books I read deserve three and a half stars.
LOVE Goodreads!! 5/5
I've used it for years to track what I have already read and what I want to read. Also, connect with friends to see what they are reading when I need something new.
The best readers tool 5/5
By Lucas Narvarez
I love this - it's the only book recommendations that I listen to, and I like sharing with my friends and colleagues
Good books 5/5
This is the easiest way to try reading books you might not try if you had to pay full price for them. All genres, all interesting.
I love this
Good App 4/5
This is a useful app
I use it more often than Facebook! 5/5
This app is amazing! It's a great way to look through the new books that are coming out. Find out what others are reading. Set personal reading goals. There are bugs sometimes but it is always updated and so eventually they work a lot of the bugs out.
Goodreads a Good App 4/5
I haven't found any app better than Goodreads for cataloging my library and feeding me Good info on books read and critiqued by others.
Good but needs work. 3/5
I like this app. It is mostly functional but he UI can be unintuitive at times, like you can't respond to a specific person in a comment thread, and can't edit a post after posting it. You can do all of this on the desktop version.
Love this app 5/5
I love tracking my books, receiving the suggestions, and joining groups!
Bookworm heaven! 5/5
By Hiho sylvers
I have always loved reading, but it got away from me due to the typical busyness of life. Goodreads has helped me to refocus on reading. I've been taking part in a reading challenge, and I get lots of ideas on what to read next from the GR community members. Great app, great site.
All readers should have this 5/5
By Snowhawk 64
Good Reads is one of my favorite places to be. It keeps track of the books I feel I should read and tracks those I have read. I can organize my books as I please. My friends and I can compare books and recommend books to one another. There are even reading groups to join which expands my group of "internet' friends. What I particularly like, with my scatter brain, is to keep favorite authors together so that I can look for their newest release. This is particularly satisfying for the books-in-series.
Great place to share reads 5/5
I enjoy visiting, and the app makes it easy!
Use this app every day! It helps me track my 'wish list' of books to read! 4/5
Easiest way yet to keep track of reading lists--accomplished and waiting to be read. Great App! Only complaint is that once in a while, for no apparent reason, a book will not show up on my 'read' list, which I change it from 'currently reading'.
Excellent app 5/5
My favorite way of finding new books to read.
Great App! 5/5
Great way to keep track of the books I have read and plan to read.
Not only a good social platform but also a great way for recommendations and to keep track of books I want to read.
Good app 3/5
By App user 2012
Would help if the welcome screen gave you time to read the quotes. It just flashes for a moment.
Best social site out there 4/5
Wish the phone app worked a little easier though.
Bookworm candy 5/5
Love this app. It's like an online magazine for book lovers. New book releases, book reviews from publishers and readers, author interviews, book give aways and more. You can sign in and create your own "bookshelf" adding a "want to read" section. When a book on your "want to read" section goes on sale, or is featured in a give away, Goodreads sends an email to let you know. And the emails do not overflow your mailbox. You can set what you want to receive and sign into your account anytime to make changes. It is not an intrusive App. Happy reading!
Best Web Site Ever 5/5
For voracious readers who want to track what they have read and look for future novels, there is nothing better than Goodreads !!
Great for sharing recommendations 4/5
Not only can I see what is trending and what my friends are reading, but if I see something out and about, I can quickly scan it and add to my list!
Very nice app 5/5
The scanning feature is really useful
Fantastic App! 5/5
A great way to keep track of your books, get recommendations and read reviews. Great!
I love it - the app keeps improving! I only wish that the reading challenge progress mentioned how many books ahead or behind I am like the full site does
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 love being able to see what my friends are reading! And being able to write reviews to help others know about books you have read.
Great App 5/5
This app hit all the points I wanted for reading. I love that I no longer have to remember the titles and authors...it tracks it all!
The only social network i really enjoy 4/5
I love browsing friends bookshelves (and reviewing my own) seeing what others are reading, and sharing books with friends. Its harder to do that in the age of Ebooks. Goodreads gives me the ability to do all of that in virtual space--which lets me connect with friends all over the world. Plus no clutter or books to dust. The focus on just one thing--what you're reading--makes it much more pleasant than the sh*tshow of anger and fake news that Facebook and twitter have become.
My only complaint is that not enough of my book reading friends keep their pages up to date! Maybe an easier integration with Facebook would help in that respect. Another improvement I would like is a related but separate feed to recommend podcasts--most of my heavy reading friends also listen to a lot of podcasts and it would be cool to have their recommendations with my books.
Love this app!!! So helpful when looking for good books to read!!!
Great App 5/5
I love this app, helps keep up with all my books.
Great, but a few bugs... 4/5
I love this app. It lets me see what I've read, what I want to read, and what I am reading. I can give reviews to help others pick their new favorite book. My only problem is that you can't take back friend requests. I was looking at someone (who I thought was my friend)'s page and accidentally clicked "add". Now I can't take it back. I really think this should be their next update... please. Also, I think Goodreads should have a place where you can take quizzes on the books you have read to see how well you read it. As far as I know, this is not a thing, but I may be wrong...
Double Count - fix? 4/5
I love the app, but I accidentally double counted books, and I wish I could fix it on the app. They are double counted in my reading challenge... Please make it so I can change the 'times read' and provide a way to edit books included in challenge(including duplicate entries).
