Great concept, design, etc., but the lack of traction and social graph made it a poor experience.

Review of Oku
So excited to see you finally launch. I'm always recommending Oku to friends, it really feels like being in a book club, and the web app is so polished that I could keep it open all the time. Congrats team!

Review of Oku
Wow! You guys really did an excellent job with this. I created an account an hour or so ago (https://oku.club/user/ndl) and was so in love with the product I spent 45~ mins exploring it & manually adding some of my books (most are unread, haha). The UI is great. I'm sure this will have exceptional utility — I currently use Bookbuddy and this is much better & obviously it has the community aspect as well. My only gripe would be the search algorithm. A good amount of books I searched for weren't available (or only available in other languages). An option to recommend books to be added would be great.

Been following their journey for a whole – love the new name, and the app is leaps and bounds better than GoodReads. https://oku.club/user/Cenk

Review of Oku
I've been using Readng (now Oku) since the open beta, and I've fell in love with it the very seconds I dig into it. Being the simplicity of the product, the well created UI and the honesty of the team's communication, it's been great from beginning to end. While I still didn't feel the need of subscribing because I don't use the product enough to require the additional features such a reading goal, stats & cie, I would love to be able to purchase something like a "Support Pack", allowing to give money to the team to support their effort, even if it's just a one time purchase. That being said, never say never, maybe using Oku will bring me a sense of accomplishment enough that I'd want to get into the reading competition and share my reading stats! Congrats team, and keep up to good work! ✌️ Note: I don't use the mobile version, only the desktop one, and I love that you took care of crafting a solid desktop experience!
