It's not bad. I've been using it to get books from my local library, so far so good. It is a little slow but not too bad. My sisters have it and they tell me that downloading my library books from this app to Amazon Kindle app is a nightmare,So be warned. it's better just to download the epub or whatever to the app itself.
This app is great! I am a kid who loves to read, but can't always convince his mom to take him to the library. I don't like rereading or spending money on books, so I don't buy books on amazon or anything like that. The only drawback is it doesn't have all the books you are looking for, so don't go to your library, start a series, and then expect overdrive has the next book.
Being able to access library books on my phone makes me read more, and Overdrive does everything I need a reading app to do. It's a clean, useful app that I appreciate immensely for putting my library in my pocket. I hope the developers are proud of themselves, because they deserve to be. You folks did good. Thank you.
It's so clunky to use. The constant back and forth between library catalog and bookshelf is annoying. It regularly fails to remember your sign in but you have to do that with both accounts anyway. It sometimes respects synergy between devices but usually not so don't expect to pick up on your tablet where you started in your phone. All in all, the design is terrible. Horrible interaction. If my library had Cloud I'd never use this. EVER
Love Overdrive!!! Great free alternative to book listening for me. With the work I do I listen to a book every other day and it has been expensive in the past. But overdrive has accessibility to a lot of the books I like to listen to just a click away free of charge
I've used this app for more than ten years to hear hundreds of audiobooks. I was always a voracious reader and library patron but lost most of the vision in one eye. This reliable, easy-to-use app has been my constant friend.
