Goodreaders is a social platform for discovering, sharing and reviewing books with other users.
If you're a dedicated book reader you've probably asked yourself "What book's next?". Reading a book is a big deal: it takes some time and your time is precious. What if you had a huge community of friends willing to recommend you some good books? That's what Goodreads is.
Actually, it offers both a web version and Android app. For searching books and see reviews you don't need to sign up. However, if you want to list your read/favorite books, review them, share and add reading friends, you must do it. You can find your address book contacts or Facebook friends on Goodreads.
The amount of books and authors is just impressive. Try it out. Besides reviewing, rating and sharing, you can see price comparisons. As a social network, you can add status updates and page number updates for books you're currently reading. You can use the scanner to quickly access book info.
Keep in mind that the best reviewer is the community.
Goodreads is a free service for everyone who reads. We have more than 8,500,000 members who have added more than 300,000,000 books.
* Search, rate, and review any book in our catalog of more than 12 million books.
* See book reviews and updates from your friends, and comment on them.
* Browse your shelves! Next time you are deciding what to read, your to-read list will be handy.
* Add status updates and page number updates for books you are currently reading.
* Use the barcode scanner to quickly scan all of your books onto your Goodreads shelves.
* Also use the scanner to quickly access book information while on the go.
* Find your address book contacts or Facebook friends on Goodreads
You can use the basic features of this app without a Goodreads account, but sign in or sign up (you can do this in the app) for the best experience!
Why does Goodreads need the READ_CONTACTS permission?
You may choose to use your Android Contacts to find which of your family and friends are already on Goodreads. Your contacts will not be read unless you explicitly choose to do this.
★ Choose when to share your review or reading progress update to Facebook
★ Fixed a couple causes of crashes, and made a couple usability improvements
In recent releases:
☆ Goodreads Recommendations are here! Now you can use the best book-recommending engine on your Android.
☆ Goodreads webpages now open inside the app
☆ Updated the barcode scanner for better performance and reliability
☆ Links in reviews, comments, etc. can now be followed
This is a descent app. I have a profile on Goodreads and I find that it is handy when trying get information on books. However, it does lack some of the details that the website has that would be nice to include.
Awesome. I love how you can scan in bar codes! Love it! Makes me feel like a librarian. That's how awesome it is. Five starts for awesomeness.
I would rate this a 5 star if it had the Newsfeed. I like to see the threads on books i've taken part in discussing without receiving notifications and I cant do so with this app.
It's crashing when I try to add Facebook friends that are already on goodreads. It also won't let me delete a friend.
This is a VERY GOOD app!!!
I abso love Goodreads bc it helps me find more awesome books. Therefore it is awesome.
