Excellent for parents of young readers

This has been an amazing tool for tracking our kids’ reading. For school, our children are required to log minutes and sometimes titles and authors during the course of the school year. My former tools for keeping track of all this (pencil and paper and clock) required a lot more time and effort on my part and were less accurate. With “You-Log”, I can quickly input the title/author with a scan or a search. Even better, the kids can scan their own books!
Also, the moment you press “Log-It” is recorded as the start time for that reading session, which can be helpful when Mom or Dad forget to look at the clock. This app has actually enabled our kids the freedom to read more and still have it count towards their reading goals. They like to read on the school bus or during their free time at school. When they come home, I ask them to tell me what page they are on. Based on the weeks of data, I can estimate about how many minutes they read. They are both exceeding their reading goals by far. Love this app!

I downloaded this because every year I set New Year’s reading resolutions. Read all Hemingway’s works. All of Steinbeck’s. Every year in able to do this no problem. Last year however, I decided to read all unread works in my library. The problem was that I felt lost. How do you pick up a book out of twenty and determine to read it with a handful of others? This app was hard to find but the only one that was going to provide what I was looking for. A reading list that helped me set goals of 100 pages a day or 60 minutes in multiple genres. As an omnivorous reader, I felt that this app understood readers more than the others. Most of all, it was simple. It knows what you’re trying to do and will track your progress through books. Just scan the barcode on the back of the book, and you’re away. Set your goals and it will help you track. Took me an hour to find in the App Store, but this one needs to be at the top. I’ve read the web and seen people trying to accomplish what this app provides using three separate apps!
Wonderful App for Parents!

This is an extremely useful app for parents who have kids that need to track their reading for school. It makes life much easier when you can email the logs to the teacher! Also, giving my kids the ability to track their reading gives then a better sense of how they are progressing.
School/Summer Reading Log

This has become a hit with our 10-year old. He can log his reading on his own and see his progress in a few different views. He digs the charts! This acts as our home/school reading log
Really Innovative & Intuitive

My daughter is loving YLR on her iPad. She has added all her summer reading books to it and logs her pages and minutes daily!

The logs are great to keep up with reading. Barcode scanner is great.
