BookScanner App App Anmeldelser

Horrible app

This app is horrible. It scans and gives you information but when you have your students actually try to use the Quiz numbers they aren’t even for the right books. I would say 90% of the books I scanned were wrong. Time wasted. Just used Accelerated Reader websites. I wish I had my $3 back. I’ve spent enough money trying to make my job easier and this has cost me more time than anything!

Best app EVER!!!!!

So worth the price. This app was AMAZING during our Book Fair. Took only a few seconds to find a book. My new favorite tool for the library. No more searching for AR quiz numbers, BL and points.

Fails to recognize the correct book or quizz

It is a good tool. But, in a many occasions the book scanned and quiz number is not recognized in the school AR. Which means my kid wasted time reading a book that will not count or be done for an AR quizz.

Best app ever!

LOVE!!!! As a teacher always looking for books to fill my classroom library, this app is a lifesaver! I can quickly scan the barcode at a garage sale or goodwill and know immediately if it is appropriate for my students. Seriously don’t know what I’d do without this app!!


I think it is great


Pretty good app. Have had to double check against Renaissance website when app doesn’t have the book.

Fast answers, easy to use

Even when I’m on a library’s WiFi, I get immediate results. It’s super fast. Simple!

I wish it had...

I wish it had the ability to keep count of how many books I have for one title. It doesn’t keep track of how many books you have in your library at all. Id also like to see it have the ability to send my complete list to my pc. Not as happy as I’d hoped to be.


Awesome app to have for kids, we use it all the time and it’s always accurate.

Works sometimes.

Half time books don’t show up and i type them in ARBookFind and they show up.

Love it

Awesome app! Some books have not been rated (if they are new.) Maybe if a book is scanned, and there is no data, the app can alert you when that book is loaded into their system? Just an idea...

Need to add more books

I like this app but please add newer books!

Why did you have to make this

You should have every single book every single book should have an air level I don’t like it so stop but please don’t delete it OK thank you bye

Better before the update.

Can't manually put in a isbn number or book title. So if you're trying to decide to order a book or not you cannot tell if it's in their reading level or not. Before the update you could put in a number but they took that away.

Wrong about several..

Labeled all my books for AR this summer but my poor students have had several occasions where this app provides a quiz number and matching book cover but there is no quiz on the AR site. When it works it’s really convenient ! But Feel awful for the kids who discover those incorrectly labeled books.

Only partially accurate

We have found that 75% of the time, this app is great. The other 25% of the time it gives a false AR score.


I think this app awesome because you get to see if your air book has points a lot of points or if it has less votes and you can see if a book is AR think you and I love you

Not what I expected

At first I was happy to use this app instead of having to type every book into the AR book finder website to find the quiz numbers and reading levels. But then the students started coming to me saying that the book quiz didn’t match the title or it wasn’t on the website. So now I have to check all the books that I scanned to make sure they are AR books and have the right quiz number printed. Don’t purchase it. I regret it and haven’t used it since.

Why I like this app

I like this app because it tells you how many A.R points it is .And what the reading level it is . That is why I like this app Sincerely, Emma

Hmmm, Dinosaurs Before Dark

Every Junie B. Jones book I scan comes back at Dinosaurs Before Dark unless I type in the ISBN. So it appears if it can’t find a book, the default is Dinosaurs Before Dark. Tips: make it easier to search by ISBN (not have to scan a UPC to pull it up) Make it easier to search multiple books (instead of going back to home screen each time)

Good so far

So far this is quick and easy to use. I wish I could search by title directly from the scanner (rather than going to the website). I also wish this gave dra/scholastic levels with 1 scan. Other than that it’s been great

Very Helpful in Finding AR Books

This app is very helpful when trying to find AR books for the kids to read!

AR must have

I search through used books with AR Bookfinder at my side. I have passed it on to many others and the schools now reference it for parents to use on their website.

Pretty good

I wish there was a place to report wrong scans. 76164 - a hat and 22100 - who hid are incorrect in you data base. I also wish it showed if it had a recorded voice. But besides that I am enjoying 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!!

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!

AR readers

What any easy way to stick to my child's reading level. Love this app.


I just purchased the app for nothing! I've scanned 15 books and the app shows the same error message... what a waste!

Needs work

Often crashes Has delay in finding books Can't find many AR books The basics are not done well These should be improved not sure why they have not been in the 4 years we have been using the app

So Helpful & Easy!

My child needs to read books for the AR program and this app makes it so easy to determine if the books she selects are eligible for a quiz and helps us determine if it's at her reading level. We use it all the time at the bookstore and library as well as books we have at home.

Love this app!

So great to have this tool when purchasing books. Great to use while thrift shopping for books and easy for the kiddo to use!!

Teacher's Dream!

Love this app to set up my classroom library!! And now, since it's sooo easy, I'm thinking about doing my own children's libraries. My daughter will start Kindergarten this year and I'm thinking of doing both of my children's libraries in their rooms now too!!

I keep getting the same response

Each time I scan a barcode I'm getting an error message that says it's a "Generic Bar Code" and have to type in the ISBN #. Once I type that in, I get the information, but I was really wanting to use the scanner part of the app. Is anyone else reporting this problem?

Years now

I just happened to find this app when I was trying to see if the kids books I have were AR appropriate my son can read what we have at home. I have since gone through every book I have at home to give my growing sons a huge chance at success with AR. This app is amazing and super easy to use!

A helpful tool in the school library

Since Accelerated Reader is a reading program our school uses, keeping track of what book is what level can be overwhelming. BOOKScanner is a very helpful tool!

Grandson's Are Reading

My K-2 teacher friend showed me this APP today while helping me search for developmentally appropriate Early Reader books in a local bookstore for my emerging reader grandson. All Level 1, 2, 3 books are NOT created equal, & this APP proved itself tremendously helpful in choosing various level books that are actually all at the same Word skill level for his mastery and further skill development. This APP is going with us to the library and as we reserve books online, too! Summer reading rocks on! Thank You!

I love this app!

This app makes it so much easier to find AR books for my kids! It's not 100% accurate all the time, but that's not enough to stop me from using it all the time!

The best teacher tool

Love it!

Saves so much time selecting and leveling books

I'm a HS teacher who uses the AR program, and find this useful both when shopping for used books, and when labeling book levels in the classroom. I find it is accurate on about 9 out of every 10 books - so please make sure you check the title and author when the result comes up, as sometimes it will give you a book with the same title by a different author, or occasionally something completely inaccurate. (I think this might be an issue with ISBNs, though, as they are often book fair titles, books from small publishers, or really old books when this occurs - I'm not sure that the app can fix that, just a word of caution for teachers trying to save time.) I am taking one star off because I have a few issues with the interface: first, when I open the app, I have to click "scan barcode" to scan a barcode. Since that's the literal purpose of this app, I think it would make more sense if the scanner was the default when you opened the app. Second, if I've just scanned one book and am now ready to scan the next one, I have to hit two buttons in two different areas of the screen to make the barcode appear - first "back" in the top left, and then "scan barcode" in the bottom center. This slows me down and makes it a little awkward to use the phone with one hand while I'm holding books in the other. Finally, when I click the icon to manually search ARBookFind, it defaults to advanced search rather than quick search, which means it takes a much longer time to input the information - rather than just typing in title and author in one box, I have to input each detail in the correct box, or manually click "quick search" to simplify the process. Overall, this app is already 100% worth $2 if you are a teacher working on an AR-friendly classroom library - but if the developers would fix those three usability issues, then it would be absolutely perfect. I imagine it would be helpful for school media specialists as well.

A good help

It's definitely an easy option than going on the arbookfind. I love it!!!

Absolutely love this app!

This app has changed my life and the life of my students! We call it the magic app. :) One small request: I wish it showed Fiction or Non-Fiction in the app scanner screen.


I have 3 kids all learning to read. This App is sooo much faster then the official one for accelerated reading. Love it.

This app is a lifesaver!!

I ❤❤❤ this app! It so easy to use and so helpful at the bookstore and library!!! I stop random people all the time and share this app with them!!!

App keeps crashing

App keeps crashing. Tried restarting and all.

Great scanner for AR Books

This scanner makes it so easy to locate AR book titles. I take it to the store and scan different books so I can see the reading and book level. I'm so happy I found the app.

Love this App

So Fantastic!!! Love, love, love this app!!!! Makes my life so much more efficient and I am so grateful!!! Thank you app people, you rock!!!

Saves tons of time!!!

I love this app. I use it more than any other app in my teaching life.

Great app for teachers

It's great how fast it scans the barcode, plus if it can't find it that way it takes you to the AR book find site to search by title. Definitely would recommend.

Very fast

This app scans books really quick. What i like is that it saves the books in the history so you can scan a bunch and then look at them all at once.

Love it!

Love it!
