Goodreads iOS App Updated, Adds Friends Updates and More

GoodreadsAmazon rolled out a much needed update to their Goodreads app for the iPad and iPhone today. The app has a whole new layout, including a different home screen and improvements to the "my books" section.

Readers can now open the app and immediately see what their friends are doing; the new home screen now shows a list of recent updates from a reader's friends on Goodreads - or at least it is supposed to show that; early reports suggest the feed is having teething problems.

Other changes to the app include support for iOS8 as well as new options for updating your reading progress right from the "my books" section of the app, a "Want to Read" shelving option, custom shelf names, and more.

You can find the app in iTunes. Goodreads also hints that the Android app could soon receive a similar update.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
