I want to keep using Overdrive. Overdrive is clean, simple, direct, intuitive. Libby has more graphics, which could be a nice addition if implemented well, but just ends up feeling cluttered and unorganized. The search results are horrible. I want what I searched for right up top, not everything some algorithm thinks I should read instead, no matter how similar. The book lists are harder to skim through, and worst of all, the ability to recommend books to libraries that allow it isn't there.

I wish I could still keep using the original OverDrive. This is supposed to be more modern and easy to use but it's just confusing and not as functional for users. The original is well organized and simple; there are wishlists and easy ways if finding everything; not as easy to explore for new books, too. This is just confusing and not my aesthetic (too much going on).

I would rather keep Overdrive app. Libby is good for searching & borrowing. it's easier to send Ebooks to my kindle. But I have a lot of issues when it comes to audio books. Sometimes it skips around the book, I have even had it switch from one book to another book that I had already listened to and returned. I have even had the audio stop and never be able to get the book playing again. Right now I can't even get the control options to pop up to start,stop or change playback speed.
