πŸ‘ Advantages of using Oku:

  • Simple and minimalistic UI & UX blew me away!
  • You can migrate all your Goodreads collections to Oku with just a few clicks.
  • You can browse what everybody is reading even without following them. Good chance to find something you might not otherwise come across.
  • It obviously has all the important features of Goodreads!
  • I love their 'Reading goal' feature.
  • You can create custom collections, i.e, Cook Books, Fiction, Non-Fiction, etc., for quick access.
  • Love their dark mode!
  • Unlock personal statistics like Number of books, number of pages, Languages, Authors, and more.
  • They're serious about Data Privacy.
Β 

πŸ‘Ž Disadvantages of using Oku:

  • Their paid plan is not so affordable for readers like me. I'm not a regular reader. I wish they had a more affordable yearly plan.
  • The development process is really slow since it's an Indie team working on weekends and evenings. So, I cannot expect great features any time soon.
  • I wish they had 'Groups' or something where fans can join a group and participate in the discussion.
