Slow and buggy

I deeply regret updating this from whatever version number the January 2017 release was. You guys clearly subscribe to the school of app deconstruction instead of development. Ads seem much more intrusive. Everything is slow slow slow (I assume due to the more graphics heavy nature of the homepage, and on that - why do books in my currently reading list need to display the cover? The old text only display was perfectly adequate and didn't mean I was trying to read light-text-on-dark-cover, a disaster combination in ANY app). Finally, making a book read no longer takes me to a page where I can review it, but back to my reading list - meaning I have to click into read, then back into that book to leave a review, which is obviously the first thing most Goodreads users are going to do after marking something as read. Is there any logical or thought-driven reason for this change? Because it is utterly baffling and nonsensical to me.

Stars are now in words

Latest update:
If marking books as re-read is important to you then you may want to update.

If (like me) you want to clearly see the ratings that your friends have given books then you will be disappointed as the stars are now in words and the book average is shown in stars (even in your friend's own bookshelf!) your feed shows your own stars (if you've rated the book) and the person whose comment you are reading has their rating in small letters (so no more skimming to read only 4 and up ratings - which seems to be the point).

Issues like long post threads being cut off have not been addressed, nor has the issue of the "show full review on feed" issue (a review is cut off but when you press show all it doesn't just pop the rest of the text open, it takes you into the review itself, wasting your time)

Speed issues haven't been addressed. Adverts continue to get more intrusive.

I would return to the original app version if I could which had more focus on groups (which are now very hard to get to with a tiny tiny button).

None of my needed changes (view all posts in long thread, link to book in comment, group bookshelf access) have been made.

Site overall: Makes finding your next book easy. I never buy a book without checking Goodreads first, although I use it much less now that they've wrecked the app.

Recent issues

SailorJane57

I have been using the app for a long time mainly to keep track of what I have read and to search for books that I want to read. Until recently I was extremely satisfied with the app and recommended it to many of my friends.
However, the most recent update is very disappointing. Many of the books that I have marked as having read have either disappeared off my read list or gone back to my to read list.
Please fix as a matter of urgency!!!!!
