Scholastic Book Wizard Mobile
By Scholastic Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Book Wizard Mobile application is a mobile extension of the Book Wizard which provides easy access to Scholastic’s database of more than 50,000 children's books. Hundreds of thousands of teachers already use Book Wizard at http://www.scholastic.com/bookwizard. Book Wizard Mobile will save you even more time.
Use the built-in barcode scanner to find book information. Sometimes, when a book has multiple editions with different barcodes, you may not find your book by scanning. Try searching by typing or saying the book’s title. New books and barcodes are being added all the time to make Book Wizard Mobile even more up-to-date.
Book Wizard Mobile lets you instantly view:
Reading Level by:
- Grade Level Equivalent
- Lexile Measure
- Guided Reading Level
Teachers can also:
• Create and save book lists, or an entire classroom library list to your existing Scholastic.com account.
• Modify existing book lists associated with your account.
• Share your book lists on your Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest accounts.
• Email book detail information to colleagues and friends.
This app does NOT collect:
• Personally identifiable information other than your Scholastic.com username, which may be your email address.
• Unique device ID
This app does collect device category (mobile/tablet) and device type (iPhone, iPod Touch, etc)
This app collects general geo-location information associated with the internet service provider through which you get internet access on your device. Scholastic does not store this information.
What's New in Version 2.0.3
- bug fixes
Could be awesome, but right now is super glitchy
The scanner beats typing each and every one of my book titles in to level my library, but it's very glitchy. The scanner freezes often. Also many titles are not in the database, even Scholastic titles! So while it has sped up the process, it is no where near what it could and should be. I have not used the list feature. Logging in every time I use the app is a pain, especially because there is no data I want kept secret in the app. Why would I care if people could see my classroom library list? If you are going to make me log in every time Touch ID or saving the password is required for efficiency. Some tips for users: I've found holding the camera at an angle to the barcode helps. Putting the camera closer to the barcode helps. Sometimes if the back cover barcode doesn't work, there is another barcode inside the cover that will work. Step it up Scholastic and this app could rock.
Became totally useless.
I used to use this app to level my books and it wasn’t the best, but it helped level some of my classroom library. Now I can’t use it at all - every time I try to log in the app crashes! As others have stated some of the cons include: having to login every time, doesn’t have some books (even if they’re scholastic books), and some books it has on the website, but doesn’t show up if you scan/use this app. It was helpful for the small bit of my library, but I have had much more luck with other leveling apps. Until they fix the errors on this app, they aren’t worth more than 1 star.
Agree with previous reviews, could be so much more
I agree with all recent reviews before me: this app has the potential to be great. My biggest pet peeves: 1. Scholastic books aren't in here ... a joke, at least start with your own titles, especially if GR levels found on your website, importing shouldn't be that hard! 2. Logging in each time stinks!!! 3. Doesn't sync on all your iOS devices ... major bummer!
I have over 800 titles in my classroom library. Worth buying "Level it" app and using this as a backup for searching titles. I really hope this app improves and at LEAST updates with all of Scholastic titles, that would be huge!!!
