What's New in Version 6.8.2
Voiceover fix for accessibility under the authors list.
Fix for crash experienced by certain Dropbox users.
Fix for a crash caused when adding books with a sort other than title.
Responded to my request for fix...
...by fixing. I was never able to see the total number of books read on either my iPad and iPhone until v6.8.2. I've been using since 2015 but until just a few weeks ago never thought to ask for a fix. Thanks Jaime for making it happen so quickly. Have to say that BC is one of my favorite and most consistently used apps!
Great features, unstable and needs work
I really like the features of Book Crawler and wish I could give it 5 stars. I like the fact that it connects to Good Reads and can search for titles in libraries. However, it needs work. I find it frustrating! It has a tendency to crash and freeze. For example, I added a cover art for one title, but it won't add it for the second title, it freezes. Dropbox connections have been quirky.
Could be great, but no support
Clearly someone is working on this app because it’s been updated recently, but whoever it is has abandoned the support forum and doesn’t respond to support requests. The Dropbox backup no longer works, and the documentation is not at all helpful. Requests for features urgently needed go ignored. (Sorting by accenting/descending for one).
I’ve spent hours putting in my books a few years ago and now I’m just sick to think it’s all lost. NOT RECOMMENDED.
