If you're a student or you have a child who is currently in school and working with the reading comprehension system we've come across a companion tool that may prove to be useful. The BookScanner App for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone makes it possible to instantly view how many points the book is worth and what the reading level it is. There’s no guessing required thanks to this app, as you get instant and quick answers about the books you’re looking at.
For students and parents who are using the reading comprehension system in school then they are well aware of the fact each book has a designated amount of points and a specific reading level. You may need to collect a certain amount of points or stick to a particular level so how do you know the book you have picked out meets your requirements? That's when the BookScanner App can come in handy. Simply scan the barcode on the book, which you'll find on the back of the book, and all the information you need will instantly be displayed. It doesn't matter what device you use the app on, since it's universal and will work on all screen sizes.
The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has four out of five stars from users who seem to appreciate how easy and informative it is to use. It has just gone through a number of updates include some small bug fixes, changes to the user interface, there are new features, a new Today Widget for those using the app with iOS 8, and there was a change made to the scanner keyboard.
Scan in books with ease
The BookScanner App is ideal for finding instant details about your book but it's got other features as well. Each time you scan a book it is saved to your history list, this means you can always go back and check it whenever you like. This history list can be printed and emailed to share with others. As far as the information goes, you'll learn the book's interest level, word count, points, reading level, and the quiz number.
The user interface is quite basic and simple but that's not a negative thing at all; in fact it, makes the app even more user-friendly. This is also a great way to build a book list of future books to read so you know what to pick out when at the library or book store.
