Card number

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.

Perfectly functional

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!

Love this App

Hampshire Libraries are using this App and I love it. Add your borrower number including the B and any zeros. The password is your pin number. Its so easy to renew your books, and know when your reservations are ready. I love the ability to scan ISBNs and add to a book list. I love issuing books to myself in the library! It is much easier to search the catalogue and reserve books. Developments I would like to see is a visible alert or banner that your items are due for renew soon (to avoid fines) and that reserves are ready to pick up.
