ABILITY to read when the books out in person

I use daily unless I’m not allowed because it’s to early or something else like that such as too late but...
I love overdrive for the fact that if I want a book that is out in person I can just pop on my iPad and issue the book online,
Especially if I really want to read a book and come back to late and find someone else came before me and issued it, and again pop on my iPad and issue it.
I find it easy to use and to access the books, the only problem is if you want recommendations you have to be logged in and then you have to go your account and look for the recommendations icon on your screen which takes ages, apart from that it’s easy to use and fun to read the book that you want read

Once you work this app out it’s great!

It did seem confusing at first. But the most important thing to remember is when on the ‘search’ page get used to where ‘my account’ is and then ‘loans’ ‘holds’ etc are. Once you remember that it’s really good using the main app for listening as you can have a timer and bookmark your place

To the app makers I wish you had 0.85 speed instead of 0.5 option as that’s too slow. i.e. if trying to get to sleep with an audiobook it be nice to be able to slow some narrators voices down a fraction. Also the ability to ‘compress’ the volume so we can hear the quiet narrators without being blasted when they go into action or acting style
Thank you

Great App

I love this app. I have read so many more books than I would otherwise have done and been able to sample many new authors. I really dislike paperbacks that have to be held open and the sometimes overwhelming experience that a visit to the library presents. This sure fixes those problems.
I just wish that I could still lock the screen from within the app but not for other apps. That option was available in an earlier version of this app and was really useful esp for reading in bed.
