Possibly getting an App

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.


IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.


To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

I love this idea! Getting an app would help so much because I’ve always felt like they’re easier to use and navigate. I didn’t know that they had attempted to do this previously. I hope some day it can work out and the idea hasn’t been tossed away.

I don't think there has been a Kickstarter for this.

There has been. Scott said so and provided a link. So, if it's failed IS the app still being developed.

Omg,! An app would be awesome. But if you visit the site enough, it will come up first thing on your phone or iPad as the place you frequently go to.

I completely agree with this comment! When I first signed up, I instantly went to look up this site in the Apple store. I was extremely disappointed when I found out that they did not have an app. There are so many reasons for this site to have an app, but one of the main reasons for me, personally, would that it would be so much easier to download my books on my phone or tablet and just carry them around with me whenever I am on the go.
Do not get me wrong, I love having it on my laptop. But for someone who does not own a Kindle, my phone is the closest thing I have to a portable book:)
