Slow, inept

1. Very slow loading new data.
2. When you attempt to click through to see more about a title, it sometimes glitches and tells you there is a server error.
3. Saved lists don’t transfer from the website version - frustrating.
4. Unnecessary clicking through, too many windows to have to work through to get info.
5. Unclear who this is targeted to; average customer or professional researchers or librarians- not many people doing an ISBN search so why is it on top page. Really not a consumer friendly app at all.
6. If the LAPL was serious about wanting consumer users to access the app, they would promote it on their website. As it was, I was having frustrations with the iPhone version of the website and not being able to access my saved lists. Now I find myself wasting time trying to figure out a useless app after librarian suggested the lists might be viewable on that platform.
Totally worthless.

PilatesBeckyD , is better

Can pretty much confirmed what other reviews state. Searching this app will not give you all the results, or sometimes any results at all. Then when you actually find a book you’re looking for, you might click on it so you can reserve it but the app just freezes. The website works great. This app is useless.

Catalog search doesn't work and UI needs major update

Searching the catalog through this app does not turn up the same results as the website (try searching for Rat Queens or Six of Crows, it acts as though they don't exist). This seems like a recent bug. (Also, the UI is clunky and outdated and needs a major usability overhaul, but that's secondary to the broken functionality.)
