BookScanner App is the ideal app for anyone who has to work with a popular reading comprehension system in school. How many times have you had to type in a book name to find out what level it is, or how many points the book is worth while holding the book in your hand? With BookScanner App, you can quickly and easily scan the barcode off the back of the book to find out all the critical information you need to know. Your scanned books will save to a history list for easy reference later on. BookScanner will find the quiz number, ATOS (also ZPD) level, points, word count, and interest level. Your history can be referenced from within the app, or you can email, print, or share PDF and CSV files of your scanned book list as well. This is a Universal App with custom screens for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices to fit the specific screen size - including support for iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8Plus, and iPhone SE screen sizes. Feedback from parents, school teachers, and librarians is that this app is a MUST have! *AR and Accelerated Reader are registered trademarks of Renaissance Learning.

  • Great idea, bad database

    By elemteacher32415
    I’m disappointed with this app’s ability to find books for my library leveling. I didn’t go with bookwizard by scholastic because the ratings were low. However, I find myself going to the scholastic site to find the information anyway. Hopefully this app can get stronger with time.
  • Super convenient!

  • Mixed Feelings

    By MRRSmith
    I have mixed feelings about this app because it works effectively as described; but if you want the Lexile number, you have to pay an additional fee!!! I bought this app to locate the Lexile levels of books that aren’t already listed elsewhere. I’m an Asst. Librarian serving parents of school children, so I look up Lexile levels often. I can’t afford to pay this additional fee for every book! This rating would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to pay an additional fee for the Lexile numbers for the books.
  • Immediate Information

    I have just spent my lunch break downloading and trying this app. I think it’s great. However how can I retrieve this information to attach to the books in my classroom library. Do I email myself? Help!!
  • Doesn’t have Guided Reading Level (GRL)

    By tpourch
    I purchased this app to help my daughter’s teacher “level” some new books in her collection. Unfortunately, the standard GRL system that the school uses does not show up in the information after you scan a book. It looks like a decent app otherwise, but didn’t do the one function that I was looking for.
  • Helpful with limitations

    For lower grade individual books it’s great but it doesn’t work with anthologies like “a collection of dr Seuss” or 10 Pete the cat stories. Wish it could use title but the scanning feature is great

  • Expected More

    By ShaeBear90
    The scanner works only on a few of my sons books. When it gives me the option to search by title, the page goes blank and does not work.. I hope this can be resolved as I feel this would be a great app to help me figure out the Lexie level of his books.
  • Books in Spanish

    I teach in a bilingual classroom setting and I wish there were more books available in Spanish.
