Difficult to say the least! Hard app to manipulate, seems it was made to be difficult! How come this app can not keep track of where I was before I shut the car down , It forgets every time I restart the car. Adding books is a chore as I can not group catagories together (Science fiction and Fantasy) There are some great women writers but there are many who I could do without. But I can not sort my listing in any usable way, Why the change to something that does not work well? Please bring back

Updates itself often, sometimes multiple times in a row. Downloads disappear for no apparent reason. very slow downloading. Will only download one item at a time, more than one and it won't download at all, just spins forever. These problems have become much worse since April 1, 2024, especially losing downloads, they just disappear from my device. Any and all are erased and very very slow to reload.

Definitely preferred Overdrive. You cannot easily request new titles as we could with Overdrive as well as it makes it more difficult todo detailed searches. But still. . . free audiobooks. UPDATE: One problem after another! Now I'm having trouble listening to books offline. That's a deal breaker for me. LIBBY IS HORRIBLE! PLEASE bring back OVERDRIVE!
