For what you can't find on hulu or netflicks This isn't bad. I wish the better titles didn't rotate out after a few months. I'll never get thru my wishlist since my library's subscription limits to 5 borrows a month. Wish there were more independent and art films, like in a physical library collection. Wish I could filter/block titles I know I don't want to see when scrolling through
Totally frustrating way to hear audiobooks 1. There are no chapters or table of contents. 2. At least once an hour the audiobook stops for no reason. Sometime it re-starts at the place it shut off and sometimes it starts over from the beginning. 3. If you stop listening and come back later you can press "resume" but it's a 50:50 chance it will start over at the beginning all by itself. This is where not having chapters comes in and is extremely frustrating. I cannot recommend this app for anyone wanting to listen to an audiobook.
So much free media Hoopla is excellent. There are so many titles and media forms to enjoy. Ebooks, audiobooks, comics, music, movies and tv shows. Many classics as well as new and popular titles. I have a long list of favorites to go through and have had the app for 11 months. Two limitations to the app are a 5 limit max per month and only 72 hours to borrow a movie.
Good app for the price. I like Hoopla for downloading audiobooks to my phone. I can then listen to the books through my phone or through the Bluetooth connection in my car. I like that the titles are always immediately available and I don't have to place holds on items. However, the selection is limited. My biggest gripe with Hoopla is that it usually takes more than one try to download an audiobook to my phone. Finally, as I said in the title of this review, it's a good app for the price--which is free.
Has worked well for me This is a much more graceful way to access audiobooks than directly from the library interface. I don't use it to watch movies or listen to music. A great feature is that if you don't finish listening to a book within the typical two-week lending period, you can use the program's History feature to borrow it again and your bookmarks are saved! So in effect you can borrow a book again and again forever.
Love the app, the ability to get audio books that are fairly current is nice. The only thing I wish this had would be a wishlist so I could jump right in to the next book. My current method is to put a book under favorite and search threw those when I've finished a current book. However, I don't like this method because I'm the kind of person who will return time after time to a beloved book which makes my favorite list rather long.
If you enjoy reading in the dark, now you can with hoopla's Night Mode in ebook settings. Unfortunately, the setting doesn't carry over to our app store notes, so make sure you have the lights on when you read this.
We've added a feature in ebook settings that will allow you to page using your volume keys. It's just another gift from us to you.
