Goodreads Droid is a fully featured Android client for the social book network Goodreads
If other social network like Twitter have clients, why Goodreads.com wouldn't have them? That's what Hactar Software developers thought and, the outcome, is "Goodreads Droid".
Goodreads Droid is set in a good-looking layout that tries to make more accessible that fantastic social network. From home you can access your shelves, see your added friends as well as their shelves, check out updates on your timeline, manage groups and search for books (also by scanning them with a built-in barcode scanner).
There's also a simple 4x1 screen widget that highlights timeline updates. We're missing though other widget sizes.
In a few words, Goodreads Droid thanks to its user-friendly interface, makes easy checking and manage your goodreads account. Highly recommendable.
You can browse your bookshelves, get updates from friends, search for new books, or find book reviews!
Use the built-in barcode scanner to quickly add books to your shelves!

Very limited in what I can do. would be better if I could access the giveaways, but I can't.
I liked this at first. Paid for the app, even but no fixes or updates 1 1/2 years later? I rarely rate low, let alone one star but this needs fixed Sometimes searches or shelves appear invalid/empty. Can't delete or add shelves from the app. App does not register profile "recently active this month" type activity on website, but will continue to update or add bks. Also fails to update read dates.
Definitely needs an optimization on Droid RAZR M. Can't edit shelves or delete unwanted ones. I can't add a book to any list other than 'to read'. I really want to enjoy this app. I will continue to use just because the premise is so good and I'm holding out for when the bugs are worked out. Then I'm sure it'll be 5star material.
Great way to learn about new books n new authors. Also great for connecting with like minded people
Works well I love it!!
