Announcing the Goodreads Android App!

Posted by Jessica Donaghy on May 02, 2011

Download the Goodreads Android app now! »

We heard you! Due to overwhelming popular demand, we've developed a new app for all you Android aficionados out there. Wander through the stacks of your local library or peruse the shelves of your favorite bookstore while simultaneously browsing Goodreads reviews. The next time you are deciding what to read, your to-read list will be handy. We're excited to make Goodreads more mobile and easier to access, and we will continue to add fun features for Android fans!

This initial version of the Android app offers:

  • Check updates from your friends and those you follow
  • Read friend reviews and community reviews of any book
  • Manage your bookshelves
  • Search our catalog of more than 8 million books
  • View your profile and browse your shelves
  • Find book recommendations from friends and other readers

If you own an Android device, we hope that you will give the Goodreads app a whirl. We welcome feedback, so please rate and review the app! (For iPhone users, we have an app for you too!)
