Description of App

Tens of people are reading the same book as you, at the moment. You

don't know them (yet). Byzans connects you with them, so that you may

enjoy fully your reading experience.

Byzans is a social network for readers. We exchange passionately about

the plot, the characters or our emotions. Reading a book, this is like

travelling. So, jump in the Byzans wagon!

In Byzans, you can:

- Discuss with people who are reading the same book as you, at the same time.

- Discuss with people who have read the same book as you. No spoiler constraint, all people in the room have read the book!

- Discuss with people who want to read the same book as you (an agree on the start date of the reading!)

Byzans provides you with community tools in each club:

A café: a chatroom, similar to a WhatsApp group, for fluid conversations. We express our feelings, we let loose!

A salon: you post, and the others comment your post (for example, a post about this character, or that chapter...).

Byzans, this is also:

A huge diversity of referenced books: novels, textbooks, comics, academic books...

Books in every language

A bar code scanner

Accessibility Comments

Pretty straight forward, though the devs could probably make it better if they knew about voiceover. Assuming they don’t.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

I was in talks with the developer when this app was first released. He assured me that he would be working on getting updates to voiceover released in the next update. This was about a year ago. I removed the app off my phone since back then it was all kinds of trouble to use with voiceover and haven't tried it again since.
