Great way to discover new books, saves you time from reading books you may dislike, huge database of books
Many reviews are subjective
As technology has evolved, the literary world has suffered. Information has become more compact and easy to access than ever. Goodreads for Android is a great little app, designed specifically for those of you that still enjoy reading a good book. In addition, the app also integrates new users into a community who share their passion for the written word.
Whether you need it to search for new literary works in which to delve, or need it to see what the community has to say about your favorite books and share your own ideas in turn, the app has something for all literature enthusiasts. The vast database of the app contains millions of books to explore and discover each with plenty of reviews written by the various members of the community. The reviews themselves vary in quality but most of them are actually helpful in deciding whether or not a certain book is worth a read.
Users of the app can even create a virtual library of their own in order to keep track of your reads. This can be done either manually or by using the build in barcode scanner. Of course, the scanner itself varies in usability for some users.
Overall Goodreads is a very nifty little app that brings a useful little search feature, and some great functionality. The interface is simple and intuitive to use, without any unneeded. If reading is one of your passions or even a simple hobby, then this app may be extremely useful to you.
