I love this app. It challenges you to read more, it suggests books for you, you can choose different genres to follow and links friends like Pinterest. I usually refer to it as the Pinterest of Books. One thing I noticed though is that you can't find everything on the app that is available on the site, specifically the giveaways. I have yet to find a link to the giveaways section through the app that doesn't originate from an email offering a new giveaway for a book I already have on a list. When browsing the giveaways, you must use the website (when you change this please let me know!)
I adore this app. It's pretty amazing, to be able to walk through a book store, scan all the books I'm interested in, then check them out at the library. I gave the app 5 stars, and Goodreads overall would probably get 4. The app is easier to use, and has different features from the website. I just wish it were easier to browse genres in the app, but already it's doable. Just not as cumulative as the website.
I've been using this app for quite a long time and it never disappoints me. It is a great way to keep track of books that I have read as well as books I plan to read. It is a great way to find new authors who might interest me. Furthermore, this app connects me to other people's recommendations. You won't be disappointed with this app.
