Excited for expansion
I will absolutely revisit this review. My current rating of 3 stars is simply because this app is still growing and, personally, I’m excited about it. I’ve been pretty bummed about the recommendations I’ve been getting through Goodreads. They’ve been really repetitive. Last night I moved what I had, and what was available, to BookSloth and I’m already getting great recommendations. The books available are quite limited right now, but I’m well aware it will take this app time to get there. The layout is wonderful and I can’t wait to see how it comes along. In the meantime, I’ll read something 😁
For a Beta version, having 2,000+ books already in their Data-Base (each one with details) is already a good thing. Also the fact that you can connect with people reading the same books as you, makes it really fun to use. Not to mention the social media feeling because of it. I think they’re off to a good start and I’m excited to see what they come up in future updates.
I hear is a new app, but the only thing I’m having trouble with is that some of the books I search to try and add to my lists aren’t available. I feel like they should make sure they have more books for us. As a suggestion: there could be a message button on the profiles (so we can exchange more ideas if we like somebody’s review or lists) and a space for promoting websites (book blogs or book tube channels)
Love the design!!
I came across this new book recommendation app through social media. It seems to be at an early stage so don’t expect to find every published book. I gave some feedback and they were kind enough to reply within minutes. Cool concept, very easy to use.
Better than Goodreads
I’m a big reader and like to use Goodreads to keep track of what I’ve read but BookSloth’s discovery features and virtual book groups make engaging with other readers, authors, characters and genres so much better. Oh, I can still track my reading.
Still growing but still lovable!
This app is still growing as it runs with a limited amount of books, but I still love it and can’t wait to see what else it’s going to have in stores with future updates—especially if it involves some sort of news feed!
Love the design!
It's easy to use and I love the design for my profile.
I love this app. It’s creative. It’s pleasing to the eye, and it’s user-friendly.
Not ready for use
This book could not find many bestselling/popular books. Example: The Last Kingdom.
Only usable with Facebook???!!!
Already turned off and I just downloaded the app. There is no apparent way to use the app without connecting to Facebook.
Definitely needs work
The app was easy enough to use I didn’t find it super user friendly but it was fine. I think my main problem with the app is I immediately imputed ratings for some books I loved and hated to try and narrow down recommendations and it didn’t even budge my recommendations even though I entered in quite a few books in fact it was recommending me books I had rated 3 or lower stars on the app even when I refreshed. I am also confused as to how books get added. I had problems coming up with some books at all. I searched Killing November By Adriana Mather which came up no problem but I tried to find her other series which did not come up at all... so at first I thought the app only really had newly released books which isn’t a major deal since the app is likely still in its starting phase but then I searched up a book published in 2009 that isn’t popular anymore and that came up just fine. As well as did a few others from 5+ years ago but then I went to search new books and books in arc form currently and certain books would pop up but others wouldn’t. I get it’s still a relatively new app but I honestly can’t figure out how they figure out what to add because it seems random I found a ton of unknown and independently published books yet I couldn’t find some NYT Bestsellers... and why you would add one authors book and not the rest of their books. I also don’t like that you only have the option to cancel or share after you’ve written a review. Canceling will save you’re review but it was very confusing at first because I didn’t want to share as I was just trying to add some books to start I feel like there should be a done button then after you press it you’re given the option to share rather than share or cancel which makes you assume if you don’t share it it’ll cancel your review. It’s not a bad app but it definitely needs work.
