Great app. I love the speed settings so I can listen to audiobooks at 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, and 2x speed. I also love that I can switch btwn my phone and my tablet and not lose my place. I wish you could read book reviews. I have to pull out my laptop and bring up B&N for reviews when choosing new books. It shows you how many stars a book has but not how many votes so for all you know that's only one person's opinion. Overall, it's a totally boss way to get free books/audiobooks!
This is a great resource but I go through my titles pretty quickly so I wish there was an option to rent more titles each month. Also they don't always have all the books in a series. They may have book 1 and 3 in a series of 5... Overall selection is pretty wide though.
Great app ! The best way to enjoy an audiobook. .. only negative remark would be is that you can only borrow from your local library and not from anywhere else if the book is not available in your area, but might be somewhere else. It would be nice to have access to other libraries.
The user interface is confusing. Whenever I want to borrow an episode in a series I tap the button closest to the episode's title but that's wrong. The correct button is under the description of the episode! Something as simple as lines separating the episodes in the list would eliminate the confusion. For now I lose one of my monthly borrowings due to the badly designed interface!
Reviewed information about app online following a friend's recommendation. Based on reviews and available information indicating the app would met my needs I installed it. I was able to select one book and begin reading it. However, after the first session I have not been able to open the book again or even open the site homepage. When I open the app all I get is a page that says I'm offline but all other apps work normally, i.e. I am online but HOOPLA does not work. Very disappointing.
Won't let me use my email address (error message says "email address not supported? It's a valid email address and works fine everywhere else). Search results show error messages like "You are offline" even though I am not. Tailored results are not even close to anything that I have read in the past. Just another boutique app with little selection and lots of bugs.
Hello again! Unfortunately, we discovered that the 4.14 release for Android introduced a bug causing the app to go into offline mode.
