Reading Log

Reading Log


This app enables parents to manage reading logs of books for kids. Books can be scanned in via the barcode scanner on the phone or entered manually. Book data is retrieved from a public Google API, including a thumbnail image of the book. A parent can store additional data about the book, including:

- date read
- time spent reading in minutes
- who read this: child , parent or "read together"
- comment for storing additional information

Parents can e-mail an HTML report in order to print out the log to submit to the kids' teachers. Multiple logs can be managed simultaneously.

It has been developed on Android 2.3 with a Droid X and compatibility-wise should work on any Android 2.1+ device with a camera. It relies on the zxing Barcode Scanner application to scan books. If you don't have that app, the phone should prompt you to download it the first time you attempt to scan a book. Book information can also be entered manually, in case the scan fails or there is no bar code (should be rare).

You'll need some books to scan. It should be pretty self-explanatory to get started, once the app is launched. You can also:

- long press a book in the log in order to add/edit book data or remove the book
- use the options menu to scan a book, enter book information manually, share the log, switch to a different log, create new logs, edit the name of the selected log or delete a log.

Note: An advert may display after sending the log.

Almost exactly what I need Can scan or manually add books. Track time, whether the book was read solo or with parent. Add comments. Perfect for tracking your child's reading. Can share by email, but tricky to print (email, save html page, open page, print). ONLY REQUEST, add share by print from app.

Is there a FAQ or somewhere to go for help? I see in your description there is supposed to be a menu where you can add a book manually. I can't find that menu in the app... My option option is to scan a book. So... Yeah... not useful for people wanting to log library books already returned.

App to store all the books you read. You can manually enter them in or simply scan them in with the bar code on the books I wish there were ways to add your own pictures of books and to have different folders for each family members.
