The app is solid. Works well. Main suggestion is the ability to add a name to the different accounts. I can’t remember which library card number belongs to who. Thanks!
Multiple accounts, hooray!
I’m so happy you’ve added support for multiple accounts. This will make it much easier for me to track my kids’ accounts.
Please consider displaying the card holder’s name in both the account switcher and on the main screen. Right now all I have to go on is the card number, so it’s not easy to figure out which account belongs to which person. Thanks!
Handy, but could improve a little
This is a bit handier than accessing through the browser, but it would be more useful if we could switch between several accounts without having to log out and back back log in. As a parent managing my own account and my children’s, I have resorted to memorizing their library card numbers. It would be ever so much more convenient to be able to switch seamlessly by simply selecting the account.
Developer Response ,
Hello, and thank you for the feedback. The iOS app is new and we are still improving. We intend to add support for multiple accounts in the future. I totally understand that logging out is not the best user experience. Two things: (1) email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions or to ask about coming features; (2) email us to tell us which apps do support a good user switching experience. The other non-iOS mobile platform which shall not be named has a whole account management system which makes this somewhat easier.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
