Featuring an Indie app today. If you're planning to set a 🎯reading goal for 2022, this one's for you.
The Problem and The Pitch
How do you keep track of the books you read? 📚
You've probably heard of (the Amazon owned) Goodreads. But if you're like one of the thousands of people on this subreddit question, you're not satisfied with its dated and clunky experience 😩
Reddit power users are opinionated. And when they coalesce around a topic as passionate as reading, you take notice. Storygraph has rave reviews 20+ times throughout this discussion 🤯👇
TL;DR: Storygraph is an app for you to track your reading and choose your next book. With a minimal, easy-to-use experience.
And yes, you can import your Goodreads progress. In a jiffy.
It lives up to the expectation of what you'd expect of a book tracking app in 2022. With no frills 🤩
- 😎 Minimal design: No frills design ensures the website real estate is reserved for the essentials. All the way from the onboarding experience to the homepage. No ads too!
- 🥸 Focus on your 'reading mood': Storygraph understands that you might be a widely different reader depending on your mood. And this theme is apparent everywhere - from the onboarding survey to the way you review a book
- ⭐ Thoughtful rating system: Not only does Storygraph allow you to rate in half and quarter stars but it also showcases book reviews in a more useful way. It displays 'mood labels' first and then the overall rating at the bottom. Reducing bias
- 💌 Built with the community: The advantage of being an Indie business is that you're more connected with your users and can iterate rapidly. The option to mark books as 📕'Did Not Finish', 🧗 create and join reading challenges, 📈 view fun reading stats, and 🤝 interact with similar users are just some of the key highlights
- 🎬 If you like Storygraph for books, you should absolutely try out Letterboxd for movies
- 📊 Storygraph also has a Spotify-like year in review stats for you! (Unlike Goodreads)
