Just heck my life
Can't get information on AR levels 1/5
As a librarian, I specifically downloaded this app to scan books to retrieve AR information. Every time I scan the book's barcode, I get an error message. The books I'm testing the app on are definitely AR books so I don't understand what the problem is. I even took the suggestion in the problem solving section about turning off wi-fi and using cellular data to no avail. Would love some feedback, Scholastic.
No sound 2/5
Works great as far as scanning books, giving videos and info about the books...the downside...there is no sound! Once that's fixed I'll add stars!
DONT GET CONFUSED! 5/5
This app is for ordering books for your children. This is the same as receiving those book order flyers your kids get at school. Great app, I can order books for my kids when "cash" is not available, I can just order it trough the app and she will receive it at school so it's very convenient for me.
You HAVE to buy a book,that stink. I wish you only borrow it like its a library
Book fair info only. Use web for orders. 2/5
This app is good to get information on books WHILE at the book fair. If you want to order stuff, you can add it to your cart but you will not know if it's in stock until checkout.
You also cannot access the school's wishlist.
Great interface for getting information. Easy to use. Pretty useless if you can't access wishlist or don't know what's in stock until you checkout.
Not the best representation of Scholastic 5/5
Being able to select books is excellent. The images are bright and colorful the descriptions are wonderful, the actual mechanics of ordering is very easy. This is a wonderful application for easily ordering children's books.
I hate it 1/5
By Seb z🦁
I can't get the book I own to my library I think even a amateurs app would be better I already own the book PS I like you but I can't get it on my library because you have to buy it even know I bought it at my book fair this app is a total rip off I hate it😤😡😤😡😤😡
Errors out 1/5
First time using the app. It gave me an error. Tried it on other books it would close the app with an error. Sorry. Bad app.
This is a SCHOOL BOOK FAIR app to BUY BOOKS with. 4/5
This app is a SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR app for those who don't understand the app title. Where did wolfkiller get the idea that it is a READING app that reads books to a person?? It does NOT say it is a READING app. READ THE TITLE people!! This app lets you BUY book fair books WITH THE APP and the books are sent to the school. This app does what it says it does. It does nothing else but offer book fair books and give reading levels of each book. It also lets a person put books in a wish list to buy anytime, which is awesome. It does not offer books to download and read to you because it is a SCHOOL BOOK FAIR APP to BUY BOOKS with. It says that in the title, people. If you want an app to read books to you, try Audible. :)
This was awful I thought this was great but it only reviews.I thought they read it to you
COOL GOOD FUN AMASSING
this one is of bad quality
Frequent errors 2/5
Works about half the time
Works about 20% of the time 1/5
By This app is ridiculous. ----
This app only scans books every so often. I just use a book finder on line. The bar code scanner gave me an error EVERY time.
0 out of 5 for me 1/5
I'd give it 0 stars if I could, as I never even got to use it! I couldn't get it to work correctly even once! I tried changing approach - cover, QR, barcode - all I got was an error screen.
Tried changing the lighting, thinking it couldnt scan books due to that - still got an error message.
Couldn't even get it to scan books at our schools end of the year SCHOLASTIC book fair.
Very disappointed as it seems like such a great resource, but the app if FULL of bugs.
I luv it 5/5
This is good because I can get books for AR(accelerated reader) and get a good book
Stories covered in Life Lessons 5/5
The app made things easier, makes me proud to be a student
It was ok I guess
Gave me Radiation Poisoning 1/5
It started with our announcement at school. "Check out the book fair app!" Those six words passed through my minds as I felt a wave of radiation pass over my body.
This app gave me that kind of cancer that you get from standing too close to a microwave oven.
This is the most unless app ever. I get an error message saying trouble detecting network connection. Yet there are no connection issues. I do not recommend this app.
Poor design 1/5
This is not a functional app. It wants you to scan codes or enter search options.
Ideally it would be nice to enter in your schools information and search through the books that are available at the fair since the flyer that is sent home is just as useless as this app.
This app works so great and I love to read
Doesn't work. 1/5
By HANNAH 267
The scanner does not work😡. The books that I have at my book fair aren't online☹️.
Waste time 1/5
It doesn't work. I can't find any books.
Set up account 1/5
Won't let me set up account so I can purchase books try to set up put everything in and won't do anything and also tried through Facebook and still wouldn't work my kids a very disappointed cause the books they want are sold out at schools
What a useless app 1/5
There's no way to see what is available at your child's book fair. It's only for scanning books in front of you at the book fair. Isn't that what the description on the back cover is for?
A idea start but...... 3/5
Love the idea. The kids loved scanning the books. I had about 5 out of 21 have some issues scanning, but I think a lot of that was our wireless. We eventually got all to scan either cover or bar code. The app needs some improvements for elementary classroom use. The biggest problem I had with it is that the only way to send to parents is email or print. We don't have wireless printers and and you have to be 13 to email which elementary students are not. If there were other send options like google drive or notability then I, the teacher, could access and send on to parents. What would be really great is if you could load your class and there lists would got to a class roster. The teacher could see the wish lists of everyone in the class and choose to share with parents from there.
Doesn't work 1/5
It keeps telling me that it can't connect to my wireless network. Not helpful for purchasing books at this time. Please fix.
Does not work!!! 1/5
By Always Busy and On the Go
Does not scan barcodes or covers. Very frustrating.😠
Waste my time and battery 1/5
Attempted to label daughters library for AR levels...scanner didn't recognize 1 book...even with the red Scholastic label...gone!!
Not what I was promised on the pamphlet thing I've got. Even the one feature this thing has stopped working after 2 tries :/
Scholastic Book Fair 1/5
Worst app ever! Useless to use unless you are physically at the fair! If I could give it less then 1 star - I would!
If I could give it zero stars I would. Just wasted 30 min trying to order 4 books and after all info entered INCLUDING my credit card # it gave me an error code that it just couldn't seem to find a network connection for my device. I'm at home on my WiFi and my connection is fine. I've tried using this app in the past WITHOUT success. It garbage. Don't waste your time.
Easy to search but it will not allow me to add anything to a cart making it essentially useless.
Do not get 1/5
This app is crap. You cannot do ONE THING on here without it saying NO BOOO RESULTS. Like how am I supposed to get the info I need but the stupid app never works! Terribly Disappointing!! 😤😤
Works sometimes 2/5
Couldn't scan barcodes but was able to scan the occasional cover successfully. Deleted
Worst app. Doesn't work. 1/5
It does not work. After 3 failed attempts, at various stages of the checkout process, I can't do it again. I'm way too frustrated.
Does not work. 1/5
I am a third grade teacher. Just used this to scan over 20 Scholastic books and not a single one was found.
Book Wizard is better 3/5
If you are a teacher like I am, you have likely been using Book Wizard to level your library. I thought this would be about the same, but it's not. Highly recommend you go check out lit leveler instead. It's not free, but so easy and WAY more hits- especially for someone looking for lexile scores.
Fail 3 1/5
Not such a great app
Very efficient APP 4/5
I felt compelled to write a review about this APP after reading the poor ones. My son told me about this app, because he like it so much! In addition, I am a librarian and had a book fair right after my son had one at his school, so I thought I’d give it a try. I have no idea what happened with the others, but it downloaded quickly and worked great. Did everything it promoted. Just wish it had a list view choice. My list wasn’t very long, but took 10 pages! Really efficient and worked quickly.
Complete fail2 wouldn't load
Doesn't work 1/5
Would not scan barcode on book fair flyer. Only one book title would scan. I searched for a title in the flyer, and the app said, "not found". Terrible app.
Scan works perfectly on bar codes 5/5
After reading the reviews I tried this app myself. Seems that many are having trouble scanning covers but I used it to scan the bar codes on the back of my daughter's books and it immediately gave me the proper results. Now we can see the AR points associated with her choices. Works very well. Great tool to help parents keep track of reading requirements.
Dumb app 1/5
I scanned the book 15 times and it didn't work
No stars 1/5
Won't scan book covers.... Tried 3 and it kept scanning over and over with no success.
Scanned two barcodes... Books not found.
