Meet Your Next Favorite Book With Goodreads' Personalized Recommendations
Goodreads, the popular social networking site widely considered the "Facebook for book lovers," is making good on its tagline, "Meet your next favorite book," with the latest update to its official iOS app. In what is perhaps its first major update since it gained push notification support just over a year ago, Goodreads for iOS has been improved with personalized recommendations. On the app's home screen, there's a new icon labeled "Recommended" on iPhone and iPod touch and "Recommendations" on iPad. Tap this icon to view a carousel of recommendations based on the books you have added to your Goodreads shelves or based on your favorite genres.

The new version of Goodreads for iOS is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. The latest update to the app also features improved speed of the barcode scanner, fixes cut-off problems in user profile pictures, and applies encryption in all network operations for better security.
