Great app for free library audiobooks.

Easy to use.

Good reading experience. Requires network connection.

The Libby app is good for reading library books when the app can find an internet connection. Fine. That gets it a 2.
Many of us want to read on our devices on public transportation, where there is often no net connection to be found. Attempting to read a title that has already been downloaded to my phone, on a subway train where there is no internet - Libby fails to load the book.
Look, I get it - Overdrive wants to track me, but does that mean you cripple the app for cases where you can't. Bulls!@t.
This 'bug; has been persistent since the beta. Then it appeared to be fixed. Now its back.
Because of the BS with loading fails, I'm tempted to rate the app 1 star, but the reading experience really is good, once you get a book loaded.
