What’s New

Version 2.2

Improvements and bug fixes.

New in Version 2

1 - “I’m listening to.” Finally, a book app that listens. With the new “I’m listening to,” feature, users who enjoy audiobooks can differentiate between reading and listening on their newsfeed, and mark a book finished as read or listened to.
2 - New profile design to make viewing easier, with more spots for books you are currently reading.
3 - Reading challenges: we’ll be adding to our iconic books list over time but there are five to start with, as well as iconic series to get through and the general books read medals.
4 - Everyone loves a reward so now you can earn and then show off badges for achieving milestones in the reading challenges and iconic books.
5 - Re-reads: now you can label a book as re-reading.

I love the idea of this app but it has some major issues that can be very irritating. When I try to make or add something to a collection it never shows up on my profile. I also cannot find many books. I hope this can be fixed soon.

Hi Olivia! Thank you for the feedback. There will be a new version coming out within the next week to fix these issues. We hope you continue to enjoy Whatbook otherwise! If you have any more issues or feature suggestions please do not hesitate to email

The search bar doesn’t work and won’t let me look up books. When I make an account with an email it won’t let me create a username it just puts my email as the username which I don’t like.

Hi there! Thank you for your feedback. This seems to be an issue a first of its kind. We are looking into the issue and promise a fix will be on its way soon!
