v1.7.6 - Mar 22, 2018
v1.7 - Feb 13, 2018
Custom Lists. You can now create your own lists and add whichever books you want to it. "Favourites", "Wish List", "Borrowed from the Library" - whatever you need. Add the lists from the book details page (or from the To Read / Finished pages); view the lists from the new Organise tab.
Reworked book details page. The book details page has had a little re-layout, to make it look nicer. On iPads, the extra space is used more effectively.
Share button. Easily share the title and author of a book with the share button on the book details page.
- Numerous other tweaks and improvements.
