  • Could be 5 stars

    I haven’t had this app for very long, but so far so good. My only problem with the app is that when adding a book from the past, you can’t add the date you finished it. Because of this, my books read for this year are missing books, along with pages read for the year. If this became an available option this app would be five stars. Hopefully they’ll add it soon!
  • Love this app!

    This app is fantastic. I used to use GoodReads but this is so much better.
  • Love the app but....

    ..... It. Is. So. Slow. To. Record. Info. I’ve been using the app for over a year and made the monetary investment for the best experience. A few updates ago, I noticed the app slowing down. It can take up to a few minute before the app clears out of whatever data gathering it is doing. For example....when I finish a book, I will enter the page I got to...and wait for the rating to pop up....and wait again for the app to recognize I have clicked the rate and finish button. I thought maybe this latest update would fix that — I’ve mentioned the problem before— but alas, it has not! Please look into this.
  • Helpful for tracking

    I really like how this app allows me to keep track of my reading time and speeds. It’s definitively useful for reading. That said, I wish you could app “books you’ve read in the past” to your yearly reading goal. As I got this app recently, all the books I read from January 2018-on don’t show up on my Yearly Tracker.
  • Great app got me reading again

    Really like the app, it’s motivating to see progress. Bookly is simple to use and The infographic when you complete a book is a nice touch. There are two features I’d like from the app which I would purchase pro for. 1) “My Books” as a list rather than a carousel. It’s difficult to interact with if there are more than 3 or 4 books in the list. 2) a social aspect. Comments from other readers maybe amazon reviews shown in the app?
  • Annoying bug when trying to record session

    By mooninaries
    I've attempted to contact the developer about this bug with no response at all. Every time I attempt to record a reading session or takes 5-10 tries to get the number pad to appear. It is really taking the enjoyment out of using this app.
  • INTRUSIVE ADS!

    This is easily the app w/the MOST INTRUSIVE ads that I’ve ever used.
  • Some books are not even on here?

    This is an awesome app, my problem is is that I’m reading a certain edition of a book and it doesn’t pop up when I search for it in the search bar or when I scan its code on the back of the book or wherever the code may be. So, please get that fixed! Thanks!
  • Excellent to get motivated to read daily

    I’ve been using this app for 6 months now and i must say it gets better and better! So many great additions, square infographics is my favorite new feature by far. P.S: Love the new name! Can’t wait to see what new stuff you guys add!
  • App Needs Work, Has Potential

    I’ve been trying to use this app since the beginning, even unlocked the IAP no problem, so I know this app has potential to be great. However, the developer(s) just have not executed on that potential yet. They have made a few useful updates along the way (adding books currently in progress, some fixes around modifying page numbers) but there is still so much about this app that feels overwhelmingly amateur. The book search remains a poorly executed feature. Adding sessions that didn’t use the app is not thought through. (If I didn’t use the app, then I probably don’t know what day I read or for how long.) Also, odd inconsistencies such as asking me how many pages I read (without the app) while sessions logged in the app ask me what page I’m on. These are some examples of why I find myself frustrated nearly every time I use the app. That said, I keep returning to the app. I use it alongside GoodReads because I do appreciate the additional analysis (e.g., pages/minute). My overall impression is that this felt like a team started building the app, and then a key player left the team shortly after launch. Maybe I’m wrong, but I would love it if the developer(s) reaches out to some more senior dev/design teams for advice on how to improve the app.
