Highly recommend this app for any teacher trying to organize their classroom library. It has almost every book out there and if you can't scan it or find it using the ISBN number then you can search most by typing in the author or title. Also love how you can add the books you have to your personal library in hopes of preventing purchase of multiples. One thing that I would like would be to add in books to the database. I have a small stack of books I was unable to find on the app and wasn't able to add them in myself. I would also like to be able to add cover pictures of books myself. Some books I found didn't have the correct cover page that corresponded to the book.
I am becoming a teacher in a few months. I have been searching and reviewing apps to help me level my totes of books I’ve collected through the years and this one seemed to be best. While it is $6, I really like it! Super easy to use. The only thing is I wish there was is when you scan the book, a summary/description would be included too. I’ve been going through and adding those in myself and it’s taking a good chunk of my time. Most books I’ve scanned have been leveled by the app, several I’ve add to look up and input myself, but, other than that, I am enjoying this app so far!
I love this App. So far I have had no problems. All my classroom Library books are marked with quiz numbers and book levels now I can add the Lexile level just by scanning the ISBN number or I can manually input the information right into my phone. It's very quick; Whereas I used to have to go to a computer and look it up. This is nice if you have a student that you can trust with your phone and even go around and snap pictures of the ISBN and write the Lexile Level and book level into the book itself. Not all books are in here, but 90% of the books I have scanned from my classroom library at the elementary level have been.
This app is a great one but needs some improvements. Many titles are not listing dra, Lexile, etc. I found a book that had the wrong title for the isbn scanned. There should be an error report capability. I found another book that showed a picture of a title page rather than the cover. I could have corrected it with a quick snapshot of my book cover. Even if we could send in corrections to an administrator for approval, that would be wonderful. I've also got a few books that won't come up by author or title. We should be able to request that to be updated also. I would enter the isbn and pictures if the option was available. These updates would make it a 5 star app.
I love this app! I have waited to write a review to see how the app would hold up and evolve. I have been using this app for over two years now and leveled lots of books in my library! The reason the app does not get 5 stars is because there is no way for me to add books that are not already in the application. So if a new book in a series or a new author pops up and I try to input the book it says that the ISBN cannot be found. If I could add the book myself that would be great. So, hopefully the developers of this app read this and it could be added with an update.
