Reco - Great books from real people
By Indigo Books & Music Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
We believe that the best book recommendations come from people you trust.
Reco is a simple way to share, discover, capture, and discuss the books you love with friends and trusted experts. Join the Reco community to:
SHARE: Quickly share your favourite books (physical books, ebooks, audiobooks) with any friend, anywhere. Simpler and more inspiring than an email or a text.
DISCOVER: Find great books personalized to your interests, curated for you by friends and trusted experts. Follow book lists from popular influencers.
CAPTURE: Keep track of the books you want to read in a simple reading list. Gone are the days of spreadsheets, notepads, and self-emails. Buy books in any format.
DISCUSS: Have thoughtful discussions about the stories you love with the people you trust.
What's New in Version 1.7.0
Reco is about finding better books more often through personalized recommendations. We are making your book discovery experience even more social with list collaboration and group discussion. Introducing Book Club! The highlights of this release include:
• Collaborative Lists. Invite your friends and followers to book club. Track and comment on books you’ve read or start a group reading list of everyone’s favourite reads. Head over to your Profile and click on Book Club to check it out!
• Group Discussion. Want to discuss more than just a single reco? Book Club includes a discussion board for you to plan your groups’ next get together, virtually meet to discuss this month’s pick, or dive deeper into your favourite interests to see what your group has to share.
• My Books Reco Rating. We are surfacing even more support to help you prioritize your books. Reco Ratings can be seen right on your lists. Head over to My Books to see which book you need to start reading now.
What are you waiting for? Update the app, start your next book club, and keep discussing and sharing your favourite books!
Too bad this didn't go any further
It had great potential, but seems to have been abandoned. It would have been nice to have a Canadian book app.
