Interface needs work
The top line of text is illegible on my iPhone XR as the words are written through the notch! 🤦🏻♂️
I can’t quite put my finger on it, but this is not as pleasant a reading experience as the Kindle app or the Libby app. Alas, it’s how my local library delivers ebooks.
I liked that the Libby app asked if I wanted to read in the Libby app or in the Kindle app. I wish ePlatform would give an option to use other reading apps as well.
Linked to my local library in Oakland, California as a source of ebooks it seems to be only for Australian library users. Fine, but not clearly stated if so.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
