Great app! Worth the $

This app has been a great help while looking for books for my children! I wish I could type in the titles but being able to scan the barcode is also great too! Love the app! I think it’s well worth the small amount of money paid!

A MUST HAVE for teachers

This is the best $1.99 I’ve ever spent for school related apps. I have hundreds of books in my class, but I’ve never finished creating an AR library because it was just too daunting. With this app, I can scan all my books, pull the ones that are AR, print my list, and make labels at home—so incredibly handy!

Not working/updated

Update: reached out to developer via FB page. Quick response and quick fix. Thank you for your responsiveness. Excited to upload my personal library into the app. Thanks!Have had the app for about three days and it won’t connect to AR today. Was able to scan a few books using my iPad when I first downloaded the app and those didn’t transfer to the app on my iPhone. Disappointing to think I can’t switch between devices to scan the books into one database. Overall disappointed. Not worth the money.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this app because it works effectively as described; but if you want the Lexile number, you have to pay an additional fee!!!I bought this app to locate the Lexile levels of books that aren’t already listed elsewhere. I’m an Asst. Librarian serving parents of school children, so I look up Lexile levels often. I can’t afford to pay this additional fee for every book!This rating would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to pay an additional fee for the Lexile numbers for the books.

Add to history problem

When searching for a book title, if only one book comes up, I can easily “Add to History”. But if a list of books pulls up and I select the one I want, it takes me to a new page and the “Add to History” link is Greyed out. I use the add to history feature a lot to help remember books my child has read before he can take the AR tests. Also, a lot of scholastic books and Scooby-Doo! Books pull up a Spanish title when the barcode is scanned. These are books that are on the AR list and I can find them if I type in the title, but the barcode scanning function is not finding the correct book.

Very helpful

I am happy with this app. But I would love for it to have a couple features not currently available. It would be a huge help if we can put a check mark next to the books that have been read. I have more than one child’s book list here and it’s getting harder to keep up with who’s read which book. Maybe adding a few different color check marks can help tell who read what also. That would make this 5 stars

A dream come true for educators and parents!

This app does a wonderful job of identifying books quickly and efficiently using the ISBN number found on the back of the book. This is a game changer for any teacher who is organizing their library or constantly updating it with new books. Any parents who are trying to find books that are in their child’s reading range, purchase now! Totally worth it!!

It WAS great last year

I’m a Second Grade Teacher and I used this app all the time, last year my students even used it with ease. It was so helpful in finding the AR level and number. It hasn’t worked yet, for the 2 1/2 months we’ve been at school. It keeps saying it can’t find the Accelerated Reader site, whether I’m using our schools network or my own personal network or any other network. It used to be great.*Revision two days later: I deleted the app and reinstalled it, as recommended by the developer. It’s working great now!!! I’m so thrilled. I took my rating from a 2-star to a 5-star!!

Lost all of the History

I’ve used BookScanner for several years now. Today while using the app, it would continue to not scan my barcodes correctly. So I looked back at some previous reviews and saw that others were having problems in the last few months. Someone with app company said to delete the app and reinstall. Well, I did that and now ALLLLL of my history of books (over thousand of books) are missing from my history!!! I’m sooo incredibly frustrated and disappointed as I use this for my classroom library to keep track of books I have purchased! Ughhhhhh!!!

AR reading program

If you’re child does the AR (accelerated reader) program at school this ap is a time saver. It allows you to scan the barcode on the back of the book and you get the reading level, quiz number, title and author. My stress level has been reduced by having this ap on my phone when shopping for books, at the library and for the books we have at home. Love it! I will be telling my children’s teachers at their fall conferences this week!

Always up to date, BookScanner is the ideal app for anyone who has to work with popular reading comprehension systems in school. How many times have you had to type in a book name to find out what level it is, or how many points it's worth, while holding the book in your hand? With BookScanner App, you can quickly and easily scan the barcode off the back of the book to find the critical information you need to know.

Your scanned books will save to a history list for easy reference later on. BookScanner will find the quiz number, ATOS (also ZPD) level, points, word count, interest level, and via an in-app-purchase, Lexile information as well. Your history can be referenced from within the app, or you can email, print, or share PDF and CSV files of your scanned book list as well. This is a Universal App with custom screens for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices to fit the specific screen size - including support for the latest iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Mini screen sizes. iPad devices also have support for landscape mode and split view.
