Thanks Borrow box

Easy and so accessible from home. Easy for those of us who can’t get out to the library

Quirky and irritating

Inconveniently the app doesn't open a book one is reading at the page one has reached without havig to open the book again. The default font is always tiny and has to be reset for every new book instead of being able to set a default font size for the app. The app is terribly touchy and the screen keeps shifting between full screen and another screen which obscures the top and bottom of the page. Generally it’s just not as user friendly as Libby which is much better designed. But as it’s the only way to access North Yorkshire Libraries it’s a case of Hobson’s Choice.

Waste of time for small town

Apparently there isn’t a way to use this app without your library information. I live in a small town of 6k, therefore my library isn’t in the selection. Deleting the app after this review. I will just continue to use my library’s online service and the subscription service from Scribd. Toodles. Update: Customer Service quickly responded to my question. I didn’t get the answer I wanted, but it was the one I figured I’d get. This APP is only for members of libraries affiliated with Borrow Box. It’s a shame... due to this, it is nearly certain small towners won’t have the ‘privilege’ to use the app. I’d give it a 0 if there was one... as it serves no purpose for me... but only a waste of my time.
