Author Profiles in the Goodreads iOS App Get a Refresh!

Posted by Greg on November 23, 2015
With more than 50% of our traffic now on mobile, it was time to give the author profile pages on our iOS app a spiffier look! The new, cleaner design helps readers quickly find out information about you (hint: writing friendly, engaging opening lines to your “about” profile is more important than ever), and your books.

Easier to Follow
Building a following on Goodreads is one of the key benefits for authors and we’ve now made the “follow” option more prominent on the author profile page. Readers can now immediately follow you to get relevant updates, whether it’s a new blog post, a giveaway, the publication date of your new book, or a response to a reader via Ask the Author.

Easier to Add Books to Want to Read
Readers can see average ratings and the number of ratings for each of your books and add them to their shelves right from your profile page.

Updated Profile Photos
Redesigned author photos now feature your Goodreads Author badge to let readers know that you’re a member of the site.

Get the app here!
