It's got a simple and functional UI. It's good! I'd recommend adding a notification option for borrowed books. That would help a lot. Additionally, I'd highly recommend adding recommendations based on borrow history, filtered search based on branch, and review pop-up when book is returned. When you modernize the entire UI like Audible, Blinkist, this would do well.

This is a good app except for one thing. That thing is why I don't rate it higher. Why does this and the VPL app lock on mobile data? I only use wifi since my internet and many other hotspots allow for free or included internet that is not mobile based. Many consider this locking on of mobile mixed with location on as spyware. I can turn location off in permissions but not mobile data. I can in other items including my sports band. Please fix this data lock on your app and the VPL one.

Excellent app to aid in my library experience. Easy to access the info. User friendly. Uncluttered look and feel. Works quickly on my old LG phone and S2 tablet with Telus 50Mbit+ internet.
