Ratings and Reviews
Terrible UI and speed
I want to like this app like I love Overdrive. But why is the txt so big? I can't read the checked out items easily when it truncates to multiple lines due to the enormous size. Is it for old people who have trouble reading small fonts? Well that's a shame, because I'm sure those older folks will think it's their fault when the search doesn't work. I searched for a new book called "bleaker house." I got everything but that result. Not bleak house which unfortunately I would hope to see in the SRPs, but in fact I got nothing remotely related to the original search terms. Ugh. I will try this app three more times to see if it's even remotely useful. Otherwise its mobile web interface for me! Sorry guys! Who does your UX testing?
It took me 2+ hours to request 10 books, shameful!
Very disappointed with this app!
It took me 2+ hours to request around 10 books, shameful! The simplest application, poorly designed. Every time I try to request a book I need to put my last name and barcode numbers from my library card, meaning to sig in. What a time-consuming app! Also, I need to put ( again and again )the town I'm going to pick the book. Please do something to fix this app. As a teacher, I really need this app to help me to save time.
Doesn't work nearly as well as it used to
This apps functionality seems to have degraded since previous versions. I used to be able to do a lot more with it. I can still check my account and renew items, but that's about it. I used to search for new books or videos, read the details of those items, and then put a hold on those I wanted. Now i can't can't even look at the items that come up in the search results. It seems it's time to abandon this app and go back to the browser interface. Too bad...
