Latest reviews

  • (2018-04-13) P.J. Cherubino: Extremely useful extension for indie authors or avid readers.
  • (2018-01-28) R. Brady Frost: I really enjoy the added information this plugin provides. Seeing page numbers on Amazon doesn't help me get a good idea of a book's actual length, but seeing the approximate word count helps put it in perspective. Also ranking info, etc. is super awesome to have handy.
  • (2016-12-27) Yves Gendron: Awesome extension. Well-made and super useful. Bravo!
  • (2016-12-27) Ask Me: Love it! Useful for authors. Thank you for creating this.

Latest issues

  • (2023-06-26, v:1.2.3) Sheri Edmondson: It worked great until today
    I just updated Chrome to version 114.0.5735.133 and now this extension no longer works. I tried multiple books but none of them have the information displayed at the top of the page.
  • (2020-11-16, v:1.2.1) Dave Casey (dgcasey): Something's wrong
    Anyone else seeing about half the books don't show this info screen at the top of the page? None of my books show the table and quite a few others I click on don't have it.
  • (2020-08-31, v:1.1) Doug Sinclair: Some info still not working
    As of the past week or so, even with the update, the book rank still appears as "NaN".
  • (2020-08-25, v: Richard Brassaw: Not working as of August 24
    The app is not working. Cleared cache and restarted Chrome. Na-na.
  • (2020-07-16, v: John Hindmarsh: Microsoft Edge and Amazon Book Research Helper
    Do you have a similar product for Edge? I have used the product on Chrome for years. Excellent. However, Chrome has a big that opens a book page at the Reviews section. Edge opens it at the top of the page. Thoughts?
  • (2018-04-02, v: Stephanie Jones: Not displaying
    For some reason, it seems one particular author's books don't display the stats at the top, but every other book I click on displays it just fine. Any of Emma L Adams books aren't showing it. https://www.amazon.ca/Hereditary-Magic-Gatekeepers-Curse-Book-ebook/dp/B07BD3DDS2/ref=pd_sim_351_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=QT7GNMREG52GQSGTQNAS
