Love it... Easy setup and friendly user interface. I love that I can choose the font I prefer and the size of my text, and having the choice between a light or dark theme. I have vision problems so its really helpful for me to be able to adjust these settings so it's easier for me to read. I can't read conventional books so having this app is critical, especially since I read every spare moment I have. I just wish it was easier to create and edits my lists.

This is a great successor app to Overdrive. I have one complaint, however. When listening to audiobooks, there isn't an easy way to equalize the audio, whether in-app or through third party options. This isn't a deal breaker, but it's annoying when trying to listen in environments with a lot of background noise. If the feature could be added, that would be great!

Wow! I've tried so many reader apps I've lost track, so I didn't expect much from Libby. However, even with my skeptical attitude, I was instantly impressed. It was easy to connect all my library cards to my Libby account, so I've got access to virtually every publication in the entire Front Range. Easy to use, always takes you back to where you left off, even across platforms. No more late fees or frantic trips to return books on time. I deleted my Kindle Reader app because I don't use it.
