Rename of Overdrive media app. A navigational mess. It looks fashionable, if that is your criteria. It automates process that should have been automated before . It doesn't get the concept that the book you are currently reading should be at the top of the list. Figuring out where things are is clumsy mess. It takes a lot of searching and finding tiny navigation arrow to find things.

Got a message that overdrive App will stop working soon and to try the new libby app. I figured if it's the new and improved version it'll work great. WRONG! It sucked from the first minute. I thought maybe I just needed to get used to it. But it's missing a TON of features. Like the ability to have your book show up in sections so you can scroll through like one hour of a book instead of 19 hours or whatever. It's seems like a slightly prettier in exchange for a way worse program. HATE IT!!!!!

Good app, but not perfect. It's a clean audiobook player and ebook reader without ads, and that's excellent in its own right. Navigation and menus aren't super intuitive. Audio playback is really compressed and artifacts are clearly audible. Playback will sometimes stop or have trouble with playback position when syncing to the web app. Results for books in a series aren't reliable. That said, I use this app regularly and I'm reading way more now.
