Glad to see some competition/choice/alternates in this space. The back button doesn't work. Login isn't clear: I don't know what the system is expecting for "library name..." oh. The dropdown requires 3 chars. All ed institutions, so pay-to-play (or public registration). Also, everything is huge. Just because it's big doesn't mean it's easy to use. My guess is that this is nascent. I'm looking forward to coming back and adding stars.

It frequently freezes up. And will replay the same chapter instead of going on to the next. The Libby app is so incredibly much better but when you check out from your library you have to use the app that the library is using...which is a terrible situation...especially when students need the book for a school assignment. I can't stand it. It's so irritating. I can never get through a single chapter without a glitch of some kind. I do not have this problem with Libby or Hoopla or Overdrive

This app is okay.😑 Once I am done with a book, it does not let me go back to the home page. When I access from Google, there is no such problem. But in the app, it becomes very irritating after a while. If this bug in the system is fixed, the app is good. Helpful to readers when we are not stuck in the same book, even when we are done with it.
