The buggiest and malpolished app in existence This app could be such a great app. However, it crashes the minute you try to view a full record of an item. On top of that, functionality is limited and not really as self explanatory as it should be.
Full Record bug Requesting to view "Full Record" information always causes the app to crash. Since the "Contents" information is missing from many records, there is no way to see what works, for example, are on a CD recording. Please fix this bug!
Works Does what it needs to do. A plus for re-newing. Can be made better, like everything else.
Can't search Worked the first time I downloaded an audiobook, now I am unable to search for books
Poorly thought through This ap is useless to me. Most of the content they push up front , like new books, events etc. is the type of content people view on the full site. However, research tools such as lists are nowhere to be found. Ironically I have to print a paper list and bring it with me, which is what I was trying to avoid. Uninstalling.
Needs occasional maintenance. Sometimes I need to manually clear the cache in order to make the app function properly. Otherwise, its a good-enough app that allows a range of useful interactions with the library and my account.
• The loading speed is improved
• Suspending holds works
• The typo "availible" is fixed
