Reading List has been discontinued as of October 2016.

I've withdrawn the app from sale because it's got a severe bug in iOS 10. I can fix the bug, but I can't submit the fix to the App Store.

In the five years since Reading List was built, I have not kept pace with new devices. (In this case, a core component is not available with 64-bit support and must be replaced.) I don't know when I might find the time to modernize the app, so I cannot continue to sell it.

Reading List was intended to be clear and convenient. I hope you've enjoyed your time with it.


Reading List is a quick, useful app that will help you get back to reading.

To add a book to your list, just enter the title and author, or scan a bar code (on iPhone 3GS or newer).

Jot down the page you're on, the library due date, where you found it, or where you left it — any notes you want.

The app can download book cover photos and fill in blank authors. You can also use the camera yourself.

Books stay organized in four views:

Sort each view however you like. You might bring up your wish list at the bookstore, then sort by author to match the store shelves.

Above all, Reading List is designed to be easy and quick. At a moment's notice, you can add a book or glance at your list. Then, get on with your life.

Reading List is available for iPhone on the App Store.
