I'm an avid reader and hate that audio books cost sooo much money so I got this app to listen to book in the car while I drive or whenever I need to listen and can't read. I absolutely love love love this app. Even for reading books on my phone I love it! I do wish the time with the books was a littke bit longer but it's one of the best apps I've ever come across
I love the large selection and different genres of books there are even enough audiobooks available for me too have a new book to listen to each week. There are classics and new releases that I'm so excited about and I love that I can use my library card and not have to make a trip to the library afterwards. There aren't any missing books or late fees ! And for someone who's so busy like me it's wonderful to be able to hear stories while I'm driving and on the go. I love this app !
Amazing app. This app filled the gap in the market for me. I go through an amazing amount of audiobooks and can never find enough good ones. All the audiobook websites and apps have limits and are a rip off. This means I can use my local library for free and I am so pleased that if asked I would actually give them money to help expand their range. I told all the guys I work with who use audiobooks when on long work trips and they couldn't believe it existed yet they hadn't heard of it. My suggestion is overdrive should advertise more clearly what they do and all that's available as even I only stumbled across it
I was thrilled to see titles available as audio books that could be borrowed - for which I'd paid about $15 for through Audible. True, there was a wait for some books, but I was still able to borrow a book that I was very interested in, and turned out to have great advice (a way of eating book). The books would not automatically appear on my other devices (although my original device was able to detect and list the other devices). There is something you have to do to put the book on your current device. I forgot again what that is and took off one star for that little hassle. I am really amazed and very happy that my six hour audio book is free!
My only problem is I wish there where more copies of some older but great books. Some of my favorite books have huge waiting lists because they only have 2-3 copies. Besides that issue this is an awesome, amazing, great,and totally wonderful app!!!!! HEY, BUT COME ON with the older novels, buy more copies. I know they have to be cheap compared with the newest number one books that you have almost 15+ copies of Everytime.
This app works fine up until a couple days ago. I signed in and when I tried to add a book I had to use my library card like usual but every time I try to go to my library's log in it won't work now. It says the webpage isn't available even though connection is fine. I really want to finish a series of books. Please help
