Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I have only just discovered this app, and can only comment on its abilities to navigate RNIB overdrive, which is what I wanted it for, and all I can say is well done Dolphin, because at long last, somebody has recognised the need to produce a simpler way of navigating what is One of the most cluttered apps I have ever seen!! Using EasyReader, I can now find books on OverDrive in a matter of seconds, double tap borrow and download them, fabulous. I have however one suggestion for improvement: would it be possible on A future app update, to include A link to the Wish List, so that we can add books to it? this would put the icing on the cake for this app for me.
Developer Response ,
Hi - thanks for the positivity and praise. We're glad you like the simplified access to RNIB OverDrive. Unfortunatley the 'Wish List' feature isn't available via the RNIB OverDrive API (the hooks they provide us), so it won't be possible to add this feature at the moment. Sorry!
Trouble Deleting Files
This is a really good app and I use it often. The only problem I have found is that I seem not to be able to delete some of my books, namely RNIB newspapers and RNIB Overdrive books that have expired. The Overdrive books aren't showing on my phone, but the app is taking up so much space that I am assuming this is the cause. I have tried logging out of Overdrive.
Developer Response ,
Are you still having the problem? All of the Overdrive books have expiry dates built in, so they are automatically deleted from your device once that date has past. Could you get in touch via email@example.com so we can resolve your issue?
Only worked for a week and now won’t download any book!
Will download a book I’ve previously downloaded but any new book I try all i get is download failed please try again,it’s been saying this for the last 3 days!
Deleted the app and reinstalled,tried a different iPad and does the exact same also reset my router still no joy!
Only changed to this as RNIB is no longer using the Overdrive app and used that for several years with no problems
Developer Response ,
Dear user, thank you for your review and we apologise for this inconvenience. We are aware that a number of titles from the RNIB Reading Services Library in the UK cannot be downloaded by EasyReader. We apologise for the inconvenience this issue is causing for members of the RNIB Reading Services library. The issue is caused by the way the titles have been compiled in the RNIB library. To resolve this issue, RNIB are currently making changes to the Reading Services library which will ensure all titles can be downloaded and read as expected in EasyReader.
