What's New in Version 1.19.9
Fixed bug that books are categorized under "#" when author name has empty space at the end
The app does what I wanted it to do - it allows me to accurately record books read and a timeline, and the information can be obtained in usable format for data mining.
What would make it a 5* review, would be if you could turn off the "feature" that pops up to tell me "you have no Items in Read Next, but would you like to start reading it anyway?"
As it happens, that's not how I use the app. I finish reading the book, turn it over, scan the barcode, save, Start Date, Finish Date, rating, put the book back in the library bag and pick up the next book.
Great value, the app does most things i need plus more, there are a few things they could add, like genre, fiction vs non-fiction info and sorting and loan/location data i.e. Where the book is currently and record if you lend it to a friend or if it's on loan from a friend.
Happy with this app - allows me to create a reading log which suits my needs- simple but effective.
