I'm trying to add science books to my list "She Blinded Me With Science", 100 books, and two of them so far (I've only gotten to add four) aren't in your database. I love the idea of this site (though Goodreads is much better- you need to be around a lot longer or get quicker on your feature set to even compare) but half the books I want aren't here. You also need: a mobile app that comes out on both iPhone and Android simultaneously. I am an Android enthusiast. We get shafted 90% of the time. It took Goodreads some time to make us an app. Don't be Goodreads. If you don't have a mobile app I am just not inclined to use the service. 2. Make an app for Android tablets and iPad at the same time. 3. Plugins and widgets for WordPress.org and Calibre. I hope you open up your API quickly so I can totally go without Goodreads. I am trying to promote you guys and get people on the site. I don't think a migration from Goodreads to Riffle proper is going to happen for most people until you decide to open up groups and author pages, etc. 4. Groups. I don't know if you JUST want to focus on book discovery and/or social but be clear about this early. I need to know if I still need GR.
I think that's it. Thanks for listening.

Hello, We recently updated our search algorithm. You should be able to find most titles. Please visit read.rifflebooks.com. If you continue to have difficulty, please email us the title and ISBN. Thank you for your patience as we continue to update our database and improve search.
In addition, we greatly appreciate your thoughtful comments about creating both iPhone and Android apps. This is definitely something we’d like to do, but not until our book database is complete and easy to search.
We are building out author-specific features right away. Please keep your comments coming as we strive to improve our system.

Otherwise, what's the point? I'm about to give up on this site. What's the use of building lists if I don't know what other people think about them? I'm not interested in sharing my lists on facebook. Those friends either already know what I'm reading or aren't interested. What I'd like is to be able to talk with people who are just here to talk about books.22 votes
Hello, We have added Disqus comments on all Lists so that Riffle users can suggest books to add to lists and have a greater sense of community. To check out this feature, go to read.rifflebooks.com, hover your cursor over the Riffle logo and click on LISTS in the drop down menu. Find a list that looks interesting. Click on that list title to see all the books in that list. If you have a suggestion for the list or comment, add it in the Disqus comments area at the bottom of the list. Thank you all for your feedback! Best, Riffle Support
there needs to be better organization of the lists, with easier search options for appropriate list topics. or subsections within the categories so to better refine searches, which as of now can become unwieldy (with 30 something pages in each category)1 vote
Hi Matt, We have added better ways to find and follow specific lists. From read.rifflebooks.com click on the Lists Tab at the top of the page. You can search by category, or type in keywords to find lists. You may also create your own list from this page by clicking the ‘Create a List’ button. Thank you again for your feedback.
I have things I'd like to say about my lists. Why I chose certain books, what books I'm searching for. We're readers and (many of us) writers here. Let us say something. Let us have something to read. If I wanted to just tweet, there's another website I could go to.2 votes
Hello Terrell, We have updated our lists so they now include the include 256 character summary as well as 400 word detailed description. Best, Marquina and Riffle Support
If a book exists more than once on a page and you mouse over any but the first instance, the tooltip tries to display by the first instance. I've noticed this on the profile page, when a book exists on both the read and "books in common" lists.1 vote
Hi Steven, Thank you for your excellent feedback. You should not see this tooltip bug anymore. Thank you, Marquina and Riffle Support
With a list of books at the bottom of the page ("books read" on a profile page) the tool tip opens with the buttons hidden off page. You can scroll down to the buttons, but when the tooltip loses focus, the bottom of the page snaps back into place, requiring you to repeat the process again. Let me know if you need help with this.3 votes

The comment above is self-explanatory!1 vote
Hi Norman, The books you see on the Riffle homepage are books that the people you Follow on Riffle either read or recommend. In that sense, they should be relevant to your interests. If not, please un-follow some of the people on your ‘People’ Tab.
tell me what happened to the email form that allowed me to send you a missing isbn so it could get added to your database.1 vote
Hi Terrell, We moved to a different support system. Please email ISBNs that you can not find to firstname.lastname@example.org. We recently updated our search algorithm, so you should be able to find most titles.

The "Change Book" dialog box for the book I'm currently reading contains a space for entering the book but no way to "submit" or "OK" the entry -- I can't get Riffle to accept the entry! This needs fixed!5 votes
Hello, This issue was resolved. Thank you for your feedback.
Allow people to log in with an email and unique password. I hate having to give access to my social media and all my contacts before I login
People who care about privacy do not like to give up all their contacts on social media just to log into a site. It doesn't matter that you say you won't post anything without permission. Thanks and good luck.146 votes
