Great app after the new update

After this new update the app looks so much better. Before I would just go to the website instead of the app because of the design and slowness. All it’s missing now is a dark mode but still 5/5

Doesn’t crash anymore

Seems to work fine, here in November of 2018.
Too bad apps like this suffer from bozos who rate it 1-star when an update had bugs, then never correct their rating after it gets fixed.

Works fairly well

Low ratings appear to be quite old when back then perhaps the app was half-baked. It is easy to use, uncluttered unlike the SFPL website, does what I need, and I hope they keep small and simple. Minus one star as the most recent update was a year ago. Who knows when Bibliocommons last did a tuneup. (Review Mar2020)
