I use this app daily. They have a wide selection of books,both written and audio. The system works well, and does not crash. I read 3-5 books a week for entertainment and it is very handy to be able to check out a book any time day or night. I can read books on my phone or tablet, listen to audio books at home or in the car. I can adjust the brightness and size of the print so reading is comfortable. It is easy to carry several books at a time, you can set your checkout periods, and I don't have to worry about misplacing books or have them overdue
I've tried about 90% of the ereaders and this is the best for what I need. What I needed is the ability to sync across platforms (tablet and phone), ability to borrow books from the local library, and the ability to read open ePub books. This does it all. I do tend to download the Kindle formats (if available) as Kindle is a better ereader. The built in reader could be better at reproducing the publishers format. Some ePub books don't always render correctly, especially older books.
Generally excellent with one or two quirks. The player is well designed and works great for selecting and playing library audio books. Two details: the pause button doesn't work on the lock screen. I have to log into my phone to pause. Also, audio players should have a selection so that I can choose if it should come on automatically when I start my car.
This is an exceptional app for access to library books. It puts books on hold and will let you know when they are available for you. There are sooo many books available for your immediate reading or listening pleasure also. They are put on a "bookshelf" for easy access and you will be notified when your "return due date" is nearing. It's an e-library like no other and perfect for bookworms like me! Happy reading!
I read every day. Being able to access my local library's e- book collection is wonderful. The audio book function is great too. Font selection & sizing a real boon as I often have problems with my eyesight. I found if the library is missing books in the middle of a series I can simply email the branch the info. Added to my permanent Kobo collection I never have to worry about having nothing to read. Thanks Overdrive.
I love this app. It works great with both ebooks and audio books. I especially appreciate being able to increase/decrease the speed of narration. Comes in handy with a slow reader. Easy to use. Can rewind/fast forward when needed. One thing I would like, and perhaps it's already there, I'd like to bookmark some books for future reading without taking them out. Sometimes I see a book I'd like to read, it's available but I don't want it now. By bookmarking it, I'll know which book I was interested in. Excellent app otherwise. I highly recommend it.
