Awe-some!!!!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!!!!! Coooooooooooool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh... my... gosh!!!!!!!!!! The people that said AR was the worst app ever and gave one star, you know what? I'm not trying to convince you, but my opinion is this. It's one of the BEST APPS EVER!!!!!!!!!! It's just amazing of how it's like. After you take the quiz, it gets graded immediately. It will tell you your points and everything. It's cool they add up the points together, only I wish AR works at home so I can take a quiz right away after reading a book.

Keep getting past the login screen and having to write the title is not really bad. It's because what if you lost your phone, and another student let you borrow their phone? What if I get in, and it knows the other person is in. What If I take a quiz, and the points go to the other student? That would be a quiz of waste. That's why you have to get past the login screen every time you get in the app.
The title thing is, well, maybe you could put the ISBN. It said, "Search title, author, or quiz number" The quiz number, I think, is the ISBN. I never search by quiz number, so I am not very sure. Otherwise, I love it.

Great concept

The concept of this app is great. It finds the large majority of the books I scan at the library. It can be slow, and buggy though. Today it crashed on me a number of times. I had to end the program a couple of times on my iPhone, because it either froze completely or searched forever. Functionally it would be great if after you scan a book you could scan the next book from the results page. Currently after you get a result you have to go back to the home screen, the touch scan book again. I find that very frustrating. I've been using this app now for two to three years to check books out for my son that are at grade level. He doesn't like to go to the library at school.


This is a great app. In my school we use it, all the time! I love that you can download it on your device and take a test when you immediately finish a book at home. If you get this a one star rating, I prefer you give it a try. Bring it up at school and asked a teacher about it. Maybe you can get a system going for the Accelerated Reader program. Just a thought in my mind, I wish you the best of luck with this app. And try better guys who need help reading!
