Love the app....but just a suggestion
Addition 24th November 2019
Just went to update my app, and saw that the update included a Wishlist as per previous suggestion from myself and others.
Thank you so much. Have already gone and added some titles to mine. Will make things so much easier as I finish a book to go to the Wishlist for next options.
BorrowBox is perhaps my favourite app, and it’s pretty clear that over the last year especially, it has become a favourite for lots of others as well.
Being an avid reader of thrillers and psychological, there always seems to be new things added, but because of only being able to have 4 books on the go (either reading or reserved), and with such long wait lists for these books, I often end up with my 4 books taken up as reserves, and as one comes available and I read, I go and reserve another. Very rarely is one of these books available straight away.
If I could make any suggestion at all that would improve my experience with BorrowBox, it would be great to have a feature that you could create a list of books you want to borrow “at some stage”, so that when you can finally go and Reserve/borrow another, that list is there for you to see and choose from, rather than me keeping a list of those books on paper or electronic notebook. I think this could be achieved by having options of Borrow/Reserve/Save as an example.
Thank you for your time and such a great app.
Amazing and easy!
This app is incredible and so easy to use! At first it was both audiobooks and normal books, but now they only have audiobooks. Fortunately they have ANOTHER app for reading which has all their library books for you to read. Just no audiobooks. It’s called Cloud Library. Anyway, besides that I think this app is amazing! The audiobooks are extremely good quality and it’s great the fact that you can just renew the audiobooks as if it’s a normal library. Overall it’s great for lazy people and people going all over the place because you only need internet for downloading it! I REALLY RECOMMEND THIS APP!!!
Who’s steering the ship?
Good app that has been a constant companion for audio books and e-books. Thank you for making this digital library service available. Seems to be becoming very popular and has as a great swathe of committed fans who have offered great feedback and ideas for iterative improvements. Scanning through the reviews, noted many are from a year or more ago which made me wonder why often requested suggestions haven’t made it through into the ux?
Here’s another vote for
🌼 Wish list / suggestions for books to add to the library
🌼 Ability to borrow available titles whilst you have others on reserve (often now for months)
🌼 Increasing/upgrading the licenses to allow for more digital copies to be available
🌼 sleep option: set time limit for audio to fade out and remain off (rather than just a stop playing in time that prompts you to touch to reactivate which often happens by accident when sleeper rolls over)
🌼 Books from all libraries to be pooled. Noticed that titles available at one library may not be available at another.
🌼 Improved search functionality eg. search by prize / award
🌼 Allow reader ratings and or import reader ratings from another trusted service - maybe good reads?
Hoping some of these and many of others’ suggestions get actioned to help make Borrow Box brilliant. 🍒
