Unable to renew or reserve...
Had no issues when I first downloaded the app, could easily renew books and search the catalogue. Since the latest update however, i'm unable to reserve or renew books with the app stating "item cannot be renewed - you are not allowed to borrow this item". When I phoned my local library they said I wasn't alone and others were getting the same error but he was able to renew my books for me. Even after logging out and back in, no difference. Please sort it out, having to phone or go in in person to renew is a nuisance!
Could be better
The app is ok, it's good to see what books I have outstanding and it gives me opening hours for libraries.
It would be good if you could truly browse the catalogue instead of having to search for key words like now.
It would also be better if there was an option to narrow down formats such as audio book/large print.
Another beneficial feature would be if you could request books to be moved between libraries for you, my local library has a tiny selection of large print and it's a pain trying to get to the library for request only to have to trek back a few days later to collect the book again.
Overall I'd say this app is perfect for straight forward browsing but not so good for special requirements.
Excellent ..... at first
Loved this app until about a year ago. I used to love the reserve function. When you heard someone talking about a book you could request it to your library. Even if a waiting list you would get an email sometimes months later telling you it was available. Brilliant. Now it won’t let me do this. Tried removing and reinstalling (as suggested by the library) but didn’t work. Please please please fix.
