Not reliable. When requesting a book from the catalogue, I've never seen anything besides an error message. Then surprise! My book that didn't get put on hold is available for pick up. I do not believe this app is being supported or tested on it's most basic function. It's a bad at at best with it's lack of function, and a malicious app at worst with it's high CPU use and requirements to access other apps and personal information. Data mining?

Surprisingly awful! Catalog never works, map never shows me the library I'm closest to, events tab always comes back with an error - at least the mobile checkout works and that's the only reason I keep this installed.

The app is not very responsive and tends to freeze up. If th developer ever gets to making it work, it might be useful. I would suggest adding an option to save books in a list. This would allow me to refer and check them out more easily.
