Kills the joy of reading and then some. If the intent is to make the books available for reading digitally, but not let users access it, then this app and the companion app Axis360 is a tremendous success. Why can't I read offline? Why does it take more than 5 mins to show my books?
Still waiting to read my book a week later... This app has to be a ploy just to chop down more trees for paper. I'm a week into my checked out book and still can't read it because apparently I'm always outside library hours for all the loan verifying it needs to do and it says it "can't connect to their server". Not to mention the full on GCSB background check just to get into it (during library opening hours) only to find you are STILL not able to read the book you've checked out.
Axis360 is a disappointment I am always frustrated when I see that my local library has elected to procure a license for book with Axis360. The App is ridiculously fat, slow, and convoluted. I would much rather have my library choose to use other Apps, like Overdrive instead. If you are a librarian reading this review, then please note: there are better alternatives.
Not great, not horrible Prefer Overdrive, its more user friendly. This app keeps having issues when I try to put books in checkout queue and try to log in. I don't like that it doesn't save my library card number and I have to enter it each time I want to checkout. Had one incident where it told me my number was incorrect. Then I checked out a book and it shows against my checkouts but the book never downloaded. Never had any of these issues with Overdrive Media but more books are available on Axisreader.
The first app I've rated in 2 years Because it is so bloody awful. If I leave the book for just a minute, the app has to verify my loan, which takes a good 30 seconds, and sometimes, it just keeps going forever. Bad. Really bad app. I'm going to over drive.
Complex, horrible reader That this app is being used to try to introduce more readers to ebooks by my library is depressing. It's overly complex to sign in, authorize, and check out books, and the reader is CRAP. Just try reformatting to make text legible. I dare you.
