Can you easily get books in?
Oku imports DIRECTLY from goodreads. No .csv file needed!
This takes a few minutes, and runs while you wait. You don't get to know when it's done. You can reload the page to see your book totals steadily increase.
It imported 292 out of my 308 want-to-read books from GR
It imported 330 out of my 351 already-read books from GR
Which ones were left behind? I don't get to know.
Can you easily get books out?
Nope. There is no data export.
And that's why I'll never know which books failed to import.
Can you organize your books?
There's no screen that lists all your books in a sortable way.
You can create collections and add books to them.
You cannot search within your books.
Does it tell you when your friends add a book, or finish one?
Yes. Notifications appear in your feed. You don't get an email though.
There is not.
Oku has solid potential. It has decent search.
To be decently feature-compatible with GR, it needs a straightforward list of all books. And data export.
Oku is new and in beta. Expect this review to change in the future.
