Scholastic Book Wizard Mobile

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Book Wizard Mobile application (School Edition) 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.

What's New in Version 1.6.3
Updates to the Ensighten Library
Good idea but needs more work
This app can be so much better! I want to be able to search my book list if I already have the book in my class or not. I want to be able to put the books in the list in some type of order - by reading level, by title, by author, etc. I want to be able to create a book list and enter books in them instead of constantly click/pressing here and there and confirming this or that. I want to be able sync with what I have on the web with the mobile app. I want the app to run faster - long wait time to process. I hope changes are coming so that all teachers can use this app easily!
I had such hope!
Won't scan most books. Gives and error and I have to search by typing in the title. And if I get lazy and try just a keyword from the title I get no results. Then after entering 150 books manually I wanted to see how they were sorted in my "classroom library" and to see if they were searchable. When I open the library it says I have 150 books, tries to load, then turns blank and tells me I have 0 books. I live scholastic but this was a waste of my morning.
The website is awesome. This app is a pale, sickly shadow. I wanted to find other books at a similar reading level to "Frog & Toad Are Friends". The app doesn't allow me to search by guided reading level. I searched for the Lobel book, but it doesn't offer similar books are any advanced search features.
If you're at a library or bookstore, and see a book you want to find a level for, this app will probably help you. Otherwise, … :(
