What would you like to see in a FictFact mobile app? What features would be the most useful?
Aug 06, 2011 9:53 PM
For me the most useful thing that I would use would be the next books list.
Maybe the book release calendar and some way of searching and adding new series/books?

Next books, series arranged as shelves, DEFINITELY a Barcode scanner /ISBN input to find a series, possibly a way to link to amazon etc. to buy books not owned. Ability to sort books based on which ones you own vs. which ones you need to buy would be so helpful in a book store!
I can't wait! What format are you planning on programming it for (Android, Apple, Amazon, etc.)?

We plan on focusing on iPhone and Android formats first, then other formats depending on demand.

An App for BlackBerry would be great too...

Next books, list of each book/order in a series (so I know which book comes next when reading a series). Thanks! Very excited!

Next books for sure (including the ability to manage the list order, update book status, add a rating or review, etc.). I like the above suggestion to allow sorting based on book ownership. Links to stores would be great. I'm thrilled that you're considering a mobile app!

I love all the above suggestions and would love to be able to either scan my books in to keep a list (I currently use bookcrawler app but if you guys had that I'd totally forget them). Also, along the same lines the isbn scanner for wish lists. Also, I would love it if you had an app for ipad too. Most definitely a personalized book release calendar.
Do you have any idea when you might have a mobile app? I'm eagerly waiting for it! By the way Thanks so much for helping me keep tabs on my book series!

I would love it if you were able to purchase books through the app.

I would like to be able to mark whether or not I own a book so I can make sure to borrow or buy the next book in the series if I don't own it... That would be useful on the site also :o)

When can we expect to see an app?
Jan 22, 2012 9:13 PM
I would love to see the Android app! :)

I hope its for iPad too
Mar 20, 2012 6:07 PM
This is great news!
I second the hope for an iPad app as well.

Right now, it is going to be a mobile version of the web site. It will work in all devices as long as you have access to the web.

Can't afford an i-anything or tablet. I do have a basic Kindle. Any hope?

As long as the basic Kindle has the ability to browse the web our upcoming mobile web site should work on it.

Just the thought of getting an app for fictfact is awesome!!!! But, scanning bar codes, sorting by categories (ie date added, author, ratings) would certainly be a plus

Need any beta testers?

I'm so excited for this app. My favorite function of this website is the list of my "next books.". I am in the middle of about 10 series right now. It was a huge pain to have to keep going back to the authors' websites to check the reading order (before I found fictfact) every time I wanted to buy a new book. It will be great to have a mobile version?

We launched the beta! If you signed up for it, you should have your email with the link. If you want to join, fill out the form here:

Would really like iPad app with all features of your website. One thing more...a flag in MySeries to note if kindle version has been purchased and is in my kindle library. If in kindle lib, direct link to download from lib to kindle device.

Book rating & easy list printing options on the web! I can't rate my books from the mobile site. iPad app will be awesome too.
