I received a copy of this iPhone app free from the developer for an honest opinion.
Are you someone who strives to read award winning books? I am, but it can be overwhelming to check all of the different lists to pick out my next read. Most lists available online are specific to a given year and don’t offer synopses. Luckily, BookAwardz ($2.99) does all of this for you and more. Within minutes, I knew that this app is going to be a hit with readers everywhere because it offers users the option to read the synopsis, save titles for later, and search for specific winners. Here’s a brief rundown of a few of its awesome features:
- Compiles award winning books from 10 major lists, including Man Booker, Pulitzer, National Book Award, and PEN/Faulkner Award.
- Each list is broken down by genre and allows titles to be filtered by timeframe (up to 25 years old).
- Clicking on a book brings up a synopsis, book cover, and a link to its Goodreads page.
- Allows titles to be added to your “wish list” for future reading.
- One-click search feature.
