Overall a great idea and app. Thank you for providing high quality material for free. My suggestion would be to add a question similar to this: Would you like to confirm this item as borrowed? Yes/Cancel. And here is why: I've noticed that when I or the kids wand to view something in more detail (description/etc) the app will assume I want to borrow the item and it "wastes" one of the monthly allotted borrows. It would be nice to just confirm that my intention is to borrow or not.
Unreliable. Eats data. Downloading books eats an amazing amount of data, so be sure you are on WiFi, not a personal plan. Downloaded books disappear at random, making offline entertainment unreliable. Such a shame! I still use it, because it's free through my library, but my expectations have plummeted.
Doesn't allow all functions of LG wireless headset. I can hear & pause but not raise volume, rewind or fast forward. Filters would be great as I accidently load an e-book and waste my quota. It would be great to be able to return/delete a book. Mirror Overdrive please!
Great selection of books. The one big problem is the app seems to get hung up so I can't borrow books. The error message says the library set a limit but when I call them they say that is not something they have set. It is something wrong with the app. I would love hoopla if worked more than a third of the time.
Won't play on rooted devices for no good reason. It's not a security thing because it stores the files encrypted on the sdcard where anyone not rooted can get it. No clue why it plays on a PC with root. Arbitrary blocking. Another case of drm encouraging piracy for a better product.
Great selection of books, terrible app. The audiobook player is extremely buggy... Audio cuts out intermittently while playback continues, and requires some combination of pausing and unpausing to resume play, followed by clumsy attempts to navigate back to the spot where the sound quit. Additionally, Bluetooth controls are not mapped properly and behave erratically. The ebook reader is more tolerable, though lacking many of the useful features of other popular reader apps.
Enhancements to the eBook reader.
