I’m a Second Grade Teacher and I used this app all the time, last year my students even used it with ease. It was so helpful in finding the AR level and number. It hasn’t worked yet, for the 2 1/2 months we’ve been at school. It keeps saying it can’t find the Accelerated Reader site, whether I’m using our schools network or my own personal network or any other network. It used to be great. *Revision two days later: I deleted the app and reinstalled it, as recommended by the developer. It’s working great now!!! I’m so thrilled. I took my rating from a 2-star to a 5-star!!
I have mixed feelings about this app because it works effectively as described; but if you want the Lexile number, you have to pay an additional fee!!! I bought this app to locate the Lexile levels of books that aren’t already listed elsewhere. I’m an Asst. Librarian serving parents of school children, so I look up Lexile levels often. I can’t afford to pay this additional fee for every book! This rating would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to pay an additional fee for the Lexile numbers for the books.
If you’re child does the AR (accelerated reader) program at school this ap is a time saver. It allows you to scan the barcode on the back of the book and you get the reading level, quiz number, title and author. My stress level has been reduced by having this ap on my phone when shopping for books, at the library and for the books we have at home. Love it! I will be telling my children’s teachers at their fall conferences this week!
This is the best $1.99 I’ve ever spent for school related apps. I have hundreds of books in my class, but I’ve never finished creating an AR library because it was just too daunting. With this app, I can scan all my books, pull the ones that are AR, print my list, and make labels at home—so incredibly handy!
I am happy with this app. But I would love for it to have a couple features not currently available. It would be a huge help if we can put a check mark next to the books that have been read. I have more than one child’s book list here and it’s getting harder to keep up with who’s read which book. Maybe adding a few different color check marks can help tell who read what also. That would make this 5 stars
BookScanner App is the ideal app for anyone who has to work with popular reading comprehension systems in school. How many times have you had to type in a book name to find out what level it is,
or how many points the book is worth while holding the book in your hand?
With BookScanner App, you can quickly and easily scan the barcode off the back of the book to find the critical information you need to know. Your scanned books will save to a history list for easy reference later on. BookScanner will find the quiz number, ATOS (also ZPD) level, points, word count, interest level, and via an in-app-purchase Lexile information as well. Your history can be referenced from within the app, or you can email, print, or share PDF and CSV files of your scanned book list as well.

Feedback from parents, school teachers, and librarians is that this app is a MUST have!
