App of the Week: YALSA's Teen Book Finder

This app has been on my list of must-share's for a few weeks... 

YALSA, the American Library Association's young adult division, 
has developed a book finder app just for teens.  

 Each day three titles are highlighted on the homescreen.

Books can be searched in the traditional means of Title and Author, 
as well as by Award, Genre, Booklist, and award/booklist Year.

And when teens find something they like, they can locate it at a nearby library by touching the Find It! button (powered by OCLC's World Cat Search). 

Add titles to a personal favorites list or share via Twitter and Facebook.

Available for iOS right now, the Android app is due out soon.

What are some of your favorite book apps?
