We’ve been working really hard to bring you more of the features you’ve asked for, chief among them:
Following! If you like to walk behind people, picking up whatever books they drop along the way, you’ll love this feature.
Conversely, Followers! If you have the biggest, greatest book collection the world has ever seen, people can now look to you for recommendations on which books to read next. We think finding like-minded readers will take some of the guess-work out of hunting down your next favourite novel.
We see a lot of you taking really cool shelfies — with everything from TIE Fighters acting as bookends, to massive, ornate Victorian bookshelves — and sometimes, you might wanna give that shelfie props for being so cool; well now you can! Just tap the little red heart at the bottom of any shelfie, and make the owner proud.
But what about all those books you love? We’ve decided to add more nuance to books than shelfies, where you can leave a rating and watch the stars flip around fetchingly. Early adopters (such as yourself) have the bonus of being real trendsetters when it comes to the artistic and intellectual merit of a book: your rating will have a lot of power in these early days.
Oh, and one more thing:
We’ve redesigned and rewritten a lot of the Shelfie app, with you in mind! We’ve drilled down to the essentials of the Feed, Profile, and Ebooks tabs, delivering a cleaner, more streamlined experience. But wait, there’s more! Tapping on a book will show you a more rich and informative Detail view, where you can peruse everything from description and ratings, to other users who own this book (probably good people to follow, we might add!)
Bugs were decimated, a slew of stability improvements were introduced, and we’re still working on dozens of ways to get your next favourite read into your hands. Keep the app updated, and we promise there’ll be plenty of exciting new features each time!
If you’re enjoying Shelfie, please consider giving us a rating and sharing with your friends!
