When editing lists it takes me several tries for the touch input to actually register correctly which is extremely frustrating. I'd also like to be able to select multiple items in a list and move them together as one easy step instead of clicking into one title, going to a separate screen, taking several tries to remove the book from one list and add it to another, repeat for every single book I'm moving. Also the back button takes you back to the main page instead of your previous page.

The app connected to my library card with no trouble, and gives me access to a huge catalogue of eBooks, audiobooks and magazines to borrow at no cost. Items can also be placed on hold and borrowed when they become available if all available items are currently on loan to other users. Items also synchronise well across devices and I use this app with both my phone and Kindle Fire. I definitely recommend this app for anyone with a connected library card.

Love this, love that I can link multiple libraries, easily place holds on books, that I can borrow either "printed" books or audiobooks. Both types download fast. I'm also a Kindle & Auduble subscriber & there are some features of those apps I wish Libby also had. As these are borrowed books, I can understand why Libby doesn't have ALL the same options & tools. Still, some would help Libby be more user-friendly. Anyway, great app, keep on reading friends!!!
