Description

Take control of your books. iRead lets you keep track of your past, present and future reading.

Your current book is displayed on the application's front page, allowing for easy rating once you've finished it. Plus, you can quickly flash your screen just to show how eclectic your literary taste is.

Have you ever had a recommendation from a friend, only to forget it by the time you got home? Use iRead to enter your reading suggestions, along with the person who recommended it so you can thank them later.

Enter books you've bought but haven't read yet to make sure you get round to giving them the time you deserve. Prevent yourself from re-buying texts you've long forgotten about.

Rate books you've already completed, for a handy reference to talk about with friends.

The built-in "Top 100" books feature allows you to view the books voted as the very best by the BBC's "Big Read" poll, just in case you find yourself in need of something new to try.

GREAT but

:
This exactly what I went looking for but it is lacking a couple of critical options. It does not allow me to be reading more that one book at a time.
It also will not allow me to edit an input. I wanted to add to an existing record but no.

Better than random post-its in my handbag

:
This app is great for keeping track of the books I would like to purchase and read. My previous tracking method including writing books I was interested in on a post-it and throwing it in my handbag and that's if I remembered to write it down. I love taking my new list to Powell's Book Store in Portland and having my list at my finger tips literally. I also like keeping track of those books I have read with my ratings on the book. The only thing missing from this app is being able to keep track of my entire library collection and downloading it from my already prepared list on Excel. PLEASE UPDATE iREAD WITH THIS FEATURE. It would help justify the price by including the capabilities of the app Book Library.

2/5 stars

There are better free applications like Pocketpedia. Very underwhelming

:
I was expecting this to be an interface to iRead, which I use on Facebook for free. Unfortunately, it is not. For those who are not familiar with iRead and Goodreads, these are free websites that allow you to do what this applications tries to do, but they do it far better. This application does not have access to a database of books, so you are stuck typing in everything manually. Pocketpedia has access to all books on Amazon.com, so I would suggest tryiing that for free before buying this. This app does not connect to an online account, so you do not have access to other people's accounts like in those other applications, so you are stuck manually entering all recommendations.

Perhaps the most annoying problem is not being able to edit entries once you enter them! This is unexcusable for computer applications. I feel like I am using a typewriter before they invented whiteout!

This is essentially a glorified todo list, and that can be downloaded for free. I am considering asking for my money back if this application is not associated with the iRead website and if they used the name illegally. I wanted to give the app 1 star, but it does work, so I'll give them credit for that. Considering this is a standalone application that does not connect to an online account, the development work was probably negligable, so I would suggest not paying a cent for this application as it currently stands.
