First off, Goodreads 3.0 features a streamlined navigation that does away with the app’s outdated grid-based home menu and offers a revamped bottom tab menu. This new menu provides quick access to the app’s most visited sections and a More tab for the other sections.
The new version of Goodreads also boasts a new home feed that shows a more Facebook-like stream of friend updates, with options for liking and commenting.
Furthermore, it offers improved shelving as it lets you easily create new shelves with custom names in addition to adding books to your to-read, currently reading, and read shelves.
Goodreads 3.0 also includes a new interface for updating reading progress and sharing thoughts, which can be found in the My Books tab.
Goodreads is owned by Amazon, which acquired the bookish social networking site in March last year.
Last week, Amazon updated the official iOS app of its Kindle e-reading service with support for iOS 8, copy-paste, and built-in translation. Also, it updated the official iOS app of its Audible audiobook service with a new Today widget for easily tracking listening time in iOS 8.
