Couldn't access anything.

iPhone 5 & iOS 8.3

Takes you right to the search screen. When you cancel it, it blinks off for a second to allow you to see there are are other options, then takes you back to the search.

Sure, I found my library, but with no way to enter my user id, just my password. What use is a password alone, with no help function.

And there's no support for this app. Support for a lot of their other products, but not for end users of this app. We are on our own. They sell it to our libraries as a wonderful tool, and leave the end user to hang.
