Love this app in general. I work at a computer 40+ hours a week, so being able to listen to a lot of audio books is wonderful. It just gets to be frustrating with the app crashing and not saving the location of the audio book. This app alone can drain my entire batter in less then 6 hours - when it would last a full day when not using Hoopla. Some key features I think are missing such as a playlist of sorts so you can go right to your next title when one finishes, and compatibility with headphone controls.. Also android wear support should at least be considered. Will update rating when/if problems are fixed.
Really? It has to be an oversight to not have your position automatically remember when listening to audio books. I read an article that claimed this was the app to have, I installed it on to my phone today and was very unhappy to find that my position was not saved in a audio book, the book is 12hrs long and I have no clue where I left off at. Two starts, fix this issue and I'd score it much higher.
needs hands-free support The audiobooks are clear to listen, and the in-app control makes it easy to skip back a few seconds or place bookmarks. However, it doesn't respond to wired or Bluetooth headset control. The app is likely to crash, the only positive being it remembers the place you left off. The video streaming is great on mobile, but I don't understand the point of "returning" one as it does nothing toward the monthly limit. A single episode of a series counting towards this is a bit disheartening.
total piece of junk I didn't think it possible, but the update made it even worse, utterly useless with skipping audio. Needs to phone home to verify books and jumps around when it does that, if it ever actually starts up right. Don't bother trying it without an internet connection with downloaded books. Just stops at points, forcing itself to reload. I wish my library would just use Overdrive instead of this waste of an app. Oh, and when you review this, review the APP not the selection of books.
Best Book Selection - bugs fixed Hoopla has the best selection of books by far as available through Hamilton County Ohio Library. Philosophy, Beckett, History, plus the classic and current novels and nonfiction are available in audiobooks at Hoopla sufficient to alter my world view time and time again. An annoying glitch had haunted the playback locking up the app often, but said demon has been exorcized. It lives! It works! I love it.
Love it Great to have while cleaning but please for the love of all human kind fix (halo the flood) its choppy and or skipping about every five min since 7:26 ish I report it gets fixed five min latr its happening again. Please for the love of all human kind fix this and I will go to five stars.
