This app is an improvement but there are a couple of errors for me:

1. Shows I have almost 2000 books, when I have just under 1000.

2. Since yesterday, I cannot rate books using the app. I can move them on my shelves, but when I attempted to rate them I got the error "This book has already been reviewed by this user" and had to cancel my rating. I had to use my laptop.

Suggestions for improvement:

1. Recommendations are great, but I would like to put "Not interested" on the app, as I actually pref

I can't figure out where to find my own reviews. After a couple of days of writing them, they seem to disappear, never to be found again. Incredibly frustrating!!

Works great, no problem with running app.
Great book suggestions, just wish there were more reviews by readers rather than "critics"

I use this more than I use goodreads from the computer. This is probably the app I use most.

The Goodreads App is a total joke! You can't even read your messages. Neither can you see your notifications. It's pretty useless, actually.

It's like there is no connection between the website and the app.
The friends I have added on the App are not my friends on the website. And all reviews I have written on the App are not on the website. WHY???

I love to use the app, but it makes no sense I have to rewrite all my reviews on the website. It's probably the same vice versa.

It does do what it says it will do, but no more & no less. However, it would be nice if I could read my messages & see notifications from the app.

I love the update! I wish it will have support for scanning ISBN 10 though. And it doesn't always work.

De office manager van mijn digitale boekenkast.... én een onmetelijke bron van informatie!
Moet wel zeggen dat'ie op de pc makkelijker werkt dan op de iPad. Dus 3*** voor de app, maar 5 superdikke ***** voor Goodreads!

Looks horrible on the iPad and the functionality is far below just accessing the web site through the iPad's Safari Browser. Why not make a high end iPad app? Why not create something that really adds value to the iPad experience? maybe even some kind of integration with iBooks.

The app as it stands right now is really not worth installing on the iPad.

I use this app, and have been wondering where all my notifications have gone! only to find, by logging in via my laptop this morning that there are stacks there that I haven't seen. An update that allows messages and notifications to be viewed is a must!

I always have problems accessing the different pages. I constantly have to sign in and out to access different pages and sometimes even that doesn't work.

I use this app all the time and rarely use the Goodreads website. The ease of scanning barcodes to add books to my shelves is AMAZING! LOVE that feature!

Can't even read any books what is the purpose to upload a book app if we can't read any.

I have to agree with what my friend Jess says, the things you need to see (notifications, messages, you know, the important stuff) just don't appear anywhere.

I have the goodreads app on both my nook and my iphone. On my iphone i can download and read ebooks however i cannot search ebooks through the app. On my nook i cant even see the few ebooks ive downloaded to my account. Ive discovered a lot of books im excited to read on goodreads but its frustrating not having the full capabilities across apps. I have to constantly flip between nook, iphone and laptop to accomplish what i want. I would like to be able to search, download, and read ebooks on bot ...more

I can't figure out how to access my notifications, am baffled when trying to navigate to some basic features of GR.

As an iPad user, it looks like I will go back to Safari for logging in through the web page until they can get this app functioning better. Good luck to the designers. I'll check back from time to time.
