Great but I want one thing changed Love the app. Works great. Love that I can save the book into my device and save my data. The one thing I want changed or the option added is I hate having my lock screen background be the books cover art. If I'm listening to a book on the way to a meeting and while in the meeting I awake my phone to check the time. I don't need anyone looking to see what I'm reading. Other apps have the option to turn this off.
Been using this for years Had this since my Galaxy S3, even better in the S7. Works with my kids ipads as well on its own or with the Kindle app. Nice sync. Easy to use but sometimes once I've downloaded a book it takes a few less intuitive clicks to get to that book the first time. Easy after that. Reading on a phone is a pain so I mostly do audio books. Would like to see full series of books, but I think that's more my library's choice. Enjoy!
Overdrive Has Changed After the latest update, I no longer like trying to check my list of borrowed books. I used to be able to easily look to see which borrowed book I would like to read next. Now, five clicks, ten clicks on their "stack of books" I either receive no reaction from the app, or I continuously get routed into the latest suggested reads. BTW, how about changing those suggestion books to the genre of books I actually read. After 8 years of continuously borrowing books, you should have learned I prefer audiobooks!
Convenient and easy I like having books quickly downloaded to my phone and the app is brilliant for that. I think it's confusing to know whether to click on account or bookshelf symbols and you have to log into your library first, so it seems like too many steps. I think the first view should be a simple login, then the next should show your chosen books.
Overdrive! This app is amazing! I have a very long commute and enjoy listening to audio books. I used to check them out at the library and sometimes I would even purchase them until someone turned me onto this stupendous application! It has saved me gas, late fees, purchase prices and time!
