I love this app! First of all, it's free. There is a huge selection to choose from in several formats and the waits are never very long when there is a wait. I tried audible and hated it. Every update gets better and I have used it for over 5 years now. I travel quite a bit and love audio books to pass the time. I've never had a download or playback issue even over several states. Clear and clean. I love being able to highlight words for definitions in the book versions too. Give it a try!

Downloaded because Overdrive app is going away. This is so much worse! I love that Overdrive takes you directly to your library's page where you have your wish list and history recorded, so it's easy to select the next book. Libby doesn't do that, it's not integrated at all!!! I have about a hundred books in my wish list that Libby doesn't have access to. It doesn't even sync with current Overdrive app. Also, it's not intuitive. What a waste! I'll keep using Overdrive until the last day.

So far not impressed. The current Overdrive app is so much better for searching and finding new books. Interface is really confusing and not not easy to use, can't find a way to save a title for later. Seems to have gone the way of many other apps, "looks over substance." Will not use until I absolutely have to when the current Overdrive is discontinued.
