Better UI but every action is slow

The app finally has a modern UI but the overhaul has come at a cost of practicality: almost every action incl. fundamental ones such as search and navigation is so slow.

Accordion Noir ,

Predictive search has been added

Thanks for the Improvements!

Speeding up I think. And entering searches goes faster for sure.

Has improved a lot since I last had it downloaded!

I used to have this app downloaded a year or two ago and the UI was terribleeeee and it was so sooooo slow, because of that I uninstalled it. However I’ve just redownloaded it recently and I’m so happy to see how much it’s improved! The UI first of all looks a lot better now! Simple and modern. In terms of speed it’s not always instantaneous but I still think it’s very fast and not a bother! Also happy to see it include some (new? unsure if these were there before the UI overhaul) features like a map to show nearby libraries as well as a section on the home page that shows upcoming VPL events. Also in terms of the main functions like searching up books, adding them to your saved lists, placing holds etc, I’ve been finding those very smooth. Overall happy to see this app improve so much, it’s very useful as I love the library :)
