Great to have an app for this with the ability to renew books via your phone. I have two children's cards linked to my name and it would be great to be able to see their loans on my account or log in as them to enable me to find all the family's books before a library visit. Hopefully this will come with updates!

First impressions

Seems like it does what you'd expect, and much easier to use on a phone than the clunky website.
The ability to switch account would be nice. As a family my wife and I manage our daughter's account and at the minute it's a lot of hard work to log out and in again.

This is a great app, but I keep getting messages that it needs updated for my phone. Please update it as I don't want to lose it.,
