Into the Vortex! ,

Simple … but has a bug

Update - app is no longer functional. No reason given - but info suggests this will be permanent and a new app is being sourced by LibrariesVic to replace it.

Not a bad app … good for managing your account. But linked accounts do not show up, as another review says. Frustrating that I have to log in and out constantly to manage family member accounts when app says it should be able to access with ease. Please fix.

Developer Response ,

The app has now been restored. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and delays. Due to circumstances beyond Library Victoria's control, the Libraries Victoria mobile app was no longer functional for an extended period.

Simplistic interface but slightly buggy

Really simple interface- so easy to use which is great!

Does have bugs such as:
1. Scanning your card when trying to log in brings up a letter on the beginning and end of the numerals making your card number incorrect- you cannot log in without manually removing the letters
2. The solution to not being able to log in is to contact a staff member. Would be SO much easier to include a reset/ forgot password fiction as opposed to slogging up to the local library
3. You cannot renew an item more than twice (even if no one else has reserved the item) and you must borrow again from scratch
4. If someone has put a hold on an item you have currently borrowed, you obviously cannot renew the item. However, the message doesn’t not say that, it comes up with a system error which is confusing

Super easy fixes right? 😊


“My Barcode” feature still not fixed

The “My Barcode” feature has, to my knowledge, never worked since the release of the app and remains unfixed. As another reviewer has mentioned, when your “My Barcode” barcode is scanned (whether at a self-checkout machine or with a handheld scanner), an extraneous letter is inserted into the barcode readout.
