Thanks for the upgrade

So glad you fixed the request a title feature. Had to have it. I like the geolocation features for finding a book that is available on the shelf. And I like being able to add upcoming events to my calendar. Good changes.

This is designed horribly. The layout doesn’t resemble the website at all and literally reserving an item or checking availability is a strenuous and convoluted process. It is also very difficult to see what is actually held and what is still on a waiting list. The cancel buttons on the waiting list are too large and can be accidentally pushed at anytime. I was scrolling through my list and must have accidentally canceled a request i had been waiting for. I had to request again pushing me further back in line. It doesn’t even ask for confirmation to see if the push was intentional. This needs a lot of improvement.

Ok, but could be improved ,

OK but needs improvements

Cons: I agree that the cancel button is too large & gets accidentally pushed just by scrolling through my account. Then have to request it AGAIN & lose spot in countdown. Also, what’s the point of activation date?? Where is the due date??

Pros: Convenient to search for books & review. Easy to see what is held & to renew. But renewal numbers are not correct.
