Minor cosmetic fixes and improvements
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Really don't know what all the fuss is about regarding security? You don't have to select 'remember me' and even if you do, it's exactly the same as any other app that you log in with. If somebody else gets access to your device they can find out plenty of personal info if you haven't secured it properly in the first place. As for the app itself, as long as your library has subscribed you can use it to reserve & renew items as well as search and filter results. Most of the poor reviews are quite old and I would suggest ignoring them as the problems have most likely been fixed by now. Give it a try for yourself...it's free after all!
Could be great but no browse by genre
I love how easy it is to reserve books and the recommended books for you section so I can add stuff to my reading lists within this app. It’s great to be able to check if your library has the books you’re interested in reading without having to make the journey there. I just wish there was a browse by genre feature because if you’re not looking for anything specific then it’s really difficult to find books. If you type in a genre in the search then you end up with thousands and thousands of results with no way of filtering them
This app needs major work and improvements. I looked at my card number and even saved it to my phone and it says that my card number is wrong now I dont know if it’s my library that doesn’t support it but I am quite annoyed.
