* Universal links. You can link to any view in the app with a URL like https://libbyapp.com/shelf/loans.
* We have richer support for all kinds of screen sizes and notches and cutouts and curlicues.

* A completely rebuilt approach to recovering from audio playback errors.
* Many minor UI improvements and bug fixes.
I love getting library books on the go. However, I don’t like the dark theme, but the sepia is too bright at nighttime.
