Needs improvements 3/5
By Noora saifi
Compared to the website, this app needs some improvements. It’s so slow and sometimes it doesn’t show me the full text of my review, not to mention that it just shows a limited number of your reviews or activities in your profile.
A must-have for avid readers 5/5
By Mama Claudette
I love this app. I used to have such a hard time keeping track of the books I wanted to read. It’s so much easier now! And because I can remember them all, I’m reading better books, instead of just reading whatever is in front of me at the time. Love, love, love it.

Remembers what I can't 5/5
I love to read but have the world's worst memory for what I've read. However, if I write a couple of sentences--or even a few favorite quotes--as a review on Goodreads, I can remind myself of why I loved or hated a book. I also love being able to keep a running list of recommendations and want-to-read books, instead of scritching titles on the backs of receipts or napkins. Every time I'm at the library I can check for what's next. It's fun to read friends' reviews and recommendations, and to find lists of books on different subjects. Great, easy-to-use app.
it's very unbelievable that many apps like instagram rapidly load data but goodreads is very slow despite it doesn't have to load heay data,it really bothers me when i have to wait and wait for a low data loaded
How did I last so long without it? 5/5
Prior to Goodreads I always read books in a series so I didn't have to think about what I would read next. When I reached the end of a series I struggled to find another series I was interested in. I also had to try to remember book titles I found interesting. Now I can simply add it to my 'to read' list. I don't have to write it down anywhere or try to remember it and I always have books lined up to read next. I honestly don't use any other features but would give it 10 stars if I could just for my to read and have read lists!
Love love love❤️ 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I have found so many books through here that were amazing. It's honestly like a Facebook for book readers who talk, breath, and live for books. I'm so glad I found it! Plus it functions great on my iPhone 6s Plus. I've never had it glitch on me
Very good 4/5
Really good book tracker. I only wish I could customize and organize to my liking.
Useful but missing some functions 3/5
You don't seem able to see the authors in your follow list through the app, which is annoying. There are also some settings and preferences that can't be adjusted. But otherwise, very useful. The scan function is especially convenient.
It's Okay 4/5
I think the app is okay. However I would love to respond to discussions from the app versus having to jump through hoops or another method to do so. Yes it could be better but for this newbie to GR.. Can be a bit more user friendly.
By Jon lover 1234567
I love the goodreads app, it’s a great place for big readers like me to connect with people. I do have a suggestion that you shouldn’t let people review books until the day they’re published. It just messes up the ratings before the book even comes out. You could still let people leave comments but I think ratings shouldn’t be available at least until the publishing date
Won’t load anymore. Urgh! 1/5
Doesn't work 1/5
Can't login or update Explore.
"XML response not formatted correctly"
Good way to use Goodreads 5/5
Easy to use to organize my reading
I ❤️Goodreads 5/5
This app is a great way to keep track of what you've read, what you want to read. I'm in a lecture and someone mentions a book I am interested in - I just plug it into my Goodreads list. The down side is that now I have a lot of books on my list!
Works for me 4/5
By Marmee in Maine
Goodreads works for me though I still miss Shelfari. Wish Goodreads allowed for rereads. Helps me tell others about books I've enjoyed.
Good for reading 5/5
By Rap Fan Disappointed
Awesome except search 4/5
I really love this app, but the search function breaks my brain. I wanted to find Michael Crichton novels. After typing “Michael Cri” and selecting to search by author, the top result was The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. What?? After typing out “Michael Crich” the top result is Hysterical Realms by Giovanni Valentino. Huh??? All other aspects of the app are awesome, but I have a really hard time searching for things and usually won’t even bother if I don’t have the UPC to scan.
Goodreads App 5/5
Love the Goodreads desktop version and love being able to take Goodreads with me with the App
Love my Goodreads 4/5
Hardly a day goes by that I am not on here. Looking forward to the day we can sign up for giveaways here too.
Love it! 5/5
This app is great! It helps me feel accomplished & keeps track of my reading list!
Excellent reading elevation 5/5
Thank you for helping to create a community of book readers! Goodreads is a way to quickly connect to people I already know but on a much deeper level.
update progress 1/5
I feel like this app has been pretty unreliable lately, especially because the update progress bar doesn't work when you try to enter a page or percent number. I'd like to see where I'm at in my books...
Love It 5/5
I absolutely love being able to track my reading throughout the year without having to remember all the books. The addition of the scanning option is great. I use to use the old app and the upgrades are so much better than I remembered. Only wish there was a distinction between physical books and audiobooks.
By T-clown babes 1995
I really like this app because if I am curious about a book I can look it up and they usually have it to see what it's about. I like the wish list too because they send emails that a book is up for a contest or they give you recommendations.
Needs 1 fix 4/5
Everything about this app is pretty great, but I have one issue with it. On the iPhone app, when I get a notification for anything other than a response to a status or comment, I will get a red notification flag but when I go to my list of notifications nothing is new. I have to log in from a computer to see that there is a giveaway for one of the books I want or whatever else the notification is for.
Newsletter is awful 4/5
I love this app and have used it and the site for years. I equally used to to love the newsletter. The new format is awful. It’s too wide so I have to keep scrolling left and right to read it all. Now it goes right in the trash. Put it back to the way it was!!!! It doesn’t have the quizzes or little tid bits that I loved. Bring back the old format, I’m begging you.
Twitter account lost with update 4/5
By Tim Goyette
Since the new app update and installing latest iOS I am no longer able to share on Twitter, before these updates this option was working fine. I keep getting an error that there are no Twitter accounts configured and that I can add or create a Twitter account in settings. However, I can only find logins for Amazon and Facebook in settings within the app. When I go to my Goodreads account on the web my Twitter account IS configured. Help?
Best App Ever for a Bibliophile 5/5
I have had this app for more than 6 years, use it everyday, and love it!
To have in one place all the books I've ever read, by categories I created, reviewed by others and me ... what more could a booklover want? And there is more: TBR lists,
information about the authors, book
Fonts are too small 3/5
I love the idea of this app. Unfortunately it's unusable on my iPad mini without a magnifying glass. And there is no way to adjust the font size.
HATE new update 1/5
I have loved GoodReads for a long time but why mess with a good thing? I hate how I really no longer have a home page instead its full of my friend's updates. Not to sound rude, but my GoodReads page is mine, not a de facto billboard for others. I hate the Facebook-style homepage. If Goodreads wants to keep the "like" and "comment" then please add a "dislike" button so I'll be able to remind Goodreads how much I HATE this update. I want to open this app and being able to navigate through my account. Not being forced to see what others read/think on my private account. I truly regret installing this update. Can it be un-installed? Or can it have the former version of the home page put back in the app? Please seriously consider the original layout without a Facebook style page. Right now it looks like the tail is wagging the dog.
How do I delete my friends on my account page (via the app)? I hate opening this app to see what people are reading instead of me choosing to see what my friends are reading. My primary use of this app is to keep a digital list of my books. Please restore this app back to its 5 star awesomeness instead of its 1 star mess.
**01 October update**
Please bring back the option up sort my books by alphabetical order. Please?
Love this app! 4/5
I barely use the website anymore because the app is so functional and easy to use. The only thing I would add is a more visible "not interested" button when browsing recommendations.
Not optimized for the 12.9” iPad Pro 1/5
This is one of my most-used apps, but it’s not optimized for the 12.9” iPad Pro. The app is just a blown-up version of the app for the 9.7” iPad. It is very blurry and fuzzy, and this is forcing me to use the online website. Please optimize the screen resolution to work with the 12.9” iPad.
Helps me keep track 5/5
I read a lot and this app really helps me keep track of the reading list. I love writing a brief review afterwards so I can look back at my initial impressions later on. Very helpful.
Love it!!! 5/5
I'm so happy with Goodreads I enjoy reading more than ever and it helps to see which book or what series to read next
I’ve been a long time goodreads user and it seems they are putting more development into their website than the app these days. Connectivity to other social media sites (mainly facebook) no longer seems to be working from the app. I don’t know when the popup ads started but there doesn’t seem to be an option to even pay your way out of getting them and they aren’t even book related so why? I’ve already removed it from my iPad.
Simplify your life 5/5
By A Farrelly
I enjoy having Goodreads, it simplifies my life. Having one place to keep my list of to read books, which previously were in random note books and sometimes on scraps of paper, is so easy. Also, when I need a little inspiration for what to read next, it's got that covered too. So easy to navigate and a great way to connect with fellow readers.
Thank you to the fine people at Goodreads
My Digital Bookshelf 5/5
By ???What are they talking about
Love this app and how it keeps track of all the books I've read or own. I used to buy more books than I could read and now that I'm downsizing, I'm having to part with a lot of my books that take up too much dead space. I created a "Before Goodreads" shelf and as I purge they get shelved digitally, rated, and sent on to a charitable organization that can re-sell the book. I also like the suggestions they give and seeing what my friends are reading. What I really love is that I can use the app to tell me where I was in a book that I haven't picked up in some time. Really fun app when the mood strikes.
Awesome challenges 5/5
My sister got me hooked on the challenges it makes it better love it great job only thing why can't we edit our comments on the phone?
So close! 4/5
I love how organized this app is however I wish it was more exploratory when I am browsing for new reads. It always brings me to the same lists and suggestions
My favorite 5/5
Love the simplicity! 5/5
This app makes reading, saving, getting updates from friends lists of interests that you might like, making lists, getting and receiving messages, setting preferences, getting notifications, joining like minded groups, and entering giveaways simple and easy to do. Much easier than online, although there are times I still go online because links through emails usually take you there. But with this app it bundles everything up in one spot with quick links rather than having to search through everything online. Worth the download!
A must have for book lovers! 5/5
Keep up with which books you have bought, read and loved. Help out your book community by giving specific reviews and rate the books you've read!
Trying to unsubscribe 1/5
By Kittycat 310
I have tried twice to unsubscribe and feel like I am sent in circles.
I WANT TO GET NO FURTHER EMAILS
Useful app! 5/5
Helps me keep my book lists straight and gives me great ideas for new books to read. Only wish there was an easy option to purchase via Amazon or another online source when I want. Highly recommended!
Like it 4/5
By Evelyne & Nolane
I really this app, the only thing that wish they could have is in the section of “to read” they would have an option has “already own it” or something in that nature because I had a book in my “to read” section that I already have but I bought it again so I had 2 copies. Otherwise not really any complaint, I like to keep track of the book I’ve already read.
Primary USE FAILURE: SCANNER DOESN’T WORK 1/5
Needs upgrade. Scanner stopped working. Not good. Bad.
Very useful....a bit cumbersome 4/5
I really enjoy Goodreads and like its features....I just find it a bit hard to do what I want with minimum effort.
Finding my book challenge list and updating it, for example.
It could just be me!
I do love seeing what other readers have to say about books and I love the friends on goodreads!
My Dream Come True 5/5
Goodreads is everything an avid reader needs! It's a place to keep track of the books you've read, are currently reading, want to read, and can't quite remember if you read.
It's also a place to find new authors, read and write reviews, connect with kindred spirits, order books through Amazon, and enter a raffle to win a book. (my time is coming!🤞🏼)
Thanks for making Goodreads for those of us too busy reading to keep track of what we've read.
Listopia suggestions 5/5
By Angy nunez
• we should be able to see the lists we’ve added or liked on our accounts instead of having the generic lists on listopia
• maybe we can also see the books in tags too in case we are looking for books with related topics
• and maybe there should be a listopia tab like the search tab so we can look for or through lists and add them
