Listed as one of the "23 Life-Changing Apps" by BuzzFeed.com
If you’re dedicated to print books, Bookling is a fun way to see your progress overtime and keep a personal log of the books you’ve read. You can set alarms to remind you to read several times a week or daily, which is a fantastic feature for people who claim they’re “too busy” to read. The bright and animated interface keeps you accountable to crack open a book instead of opening Facebook.
- Bookmark multiple books and track your progress with ease.
- Update your progress easily and monitor your reading speed with our speed beacons.
- Setup reminders and keep reading your books regularly.
- Set an yearly goal and track your progress.
- Read more to achieve more; unlock badges as you progress.
- All your data is privately stored on your iCloud and is not accessible by anyone, not even us.
What's New in Version 1.5
Yearly Goal totally fixed but some old users might need to reset the app or start the goal again after the update. We apologize for the inconvenience but due to some iOS restrictions this is the only way for us to move forward.
Nicely designed app that is good for what it is, but a bit short on features. I was hoping to track my book progress and have the app determine when I would finish (I'm on a self-imposed deadline). The app won't do this. It can tell you how many books you've read within the first 365 days after you start the app, which is not useful for goals with specific deadlines. There is also an arbitrary page limit to your books, which doesn't work for Ebooks that have thousands of locations. Try the app called Leio instead.
I used the app for about four months and loved it - was great for pacing novel readings for class. However, I checked it this morning to see that it had reset itself and lost all my records. I had put almost twenty books on here and now have no record of what I've read this year. Will be deleting the app as it is no use to me if I can't rely on it to save the books I've read.
Helpful if Not Simple App
I saw this app on a Buzzfeed list and decided to give it a try. While some areas are lacking (An author, any way to add a note, etc.), overall it's an incredibly useful app that lets me keep track of my reading and focus on reading more consistently. For what it does, a pretty good app that I'd reccomend to another reader.
