Still needs modernization

The app has most of the basic features users would expect, except for user lists being completely missing. However, the UI feels like it was developed a decade ago. A couple examples: When opening an activity from the dashboard, there’s a very weird and unintuitive transition as a navigation controller appears, and when we press back to return to the dashboard. Also, it takes one tap from the homepage to open local newspaper indexes, and two taps to see what books I have on hold, even though seeing what books I have on hold is a *way* more common activity for an average library user. Finally, if an item is on hold and can’t be renewed, the renew button is still visible, but when it is clicked an alert pops up saying that the item can’t be renewed. Why show this button in the first place? It makes no sense. In general, this would be better laid out as a tab bar application, with the dashboard being a tab (or even some dashboard activities having their own tabs, like checked out and holds) and the other activities on the home screen that are most commonly used as other tabs. Also, the “keep signed in” checkbox is only intermittently effective, I’m sometimes logged out after I use the app.

Much better!

The app is so much better with the recent update. I love the linked accounts - makes my life as a mom much easier. The app is still a little on the slow side, but I can deal with that.

Better than the previous version

The app is much more responsive than the previous version but constantly logs me out of the system and then locks up when trying to log back on. One has to close the app completely after trying to log back in for the app to become functional again. Some of its other features, don’t appear to work at all.
