Overall I really like the app and use it for audiobooks. There are only a couple features that are annoying. The auto start once my phone connects to my car. There are times where I don't like it when it just starts playing. The other feature is easily showing which books you have already listened to when browsing.
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.
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 mostly use this for audio books, and it works great. Playback is great, keeps your place will, easy controls. UI for finding the things you have on hold takes a bit to find, but once you figure it out, it's no big deal. Great resource for free and with a library card. Pretty sweet. Not much to complain about for something entirely free without ads.
So convenient. I am not a fan of ereaders but this app is really well designed. You can tell a lot of thought has been put into the user experience. I like that it's easy to switch from night reading to day reading. I haven't come across any bugs at all. That's what happens when a company invests in development instead of marketing. Picture books don't display well but that is more of an issue with the epub than the reader.
Been using overdrive for years now. I absolutely love it. Anything you can check out in a library, you can check out on here. Even have a waiting list if it's already checked out and they email you as soon as your book becomes available. Plus if you're not finished with the book by the time it's due back you can recheck it out so you have plenty of time to finish It! Really love this app.
The app is great and works great, except for one issue and there's no information on how to fix it. The books that aren't at my library can be recommended for the library to purchase. However the process doesn't work for me. It opens the page to recommend and the email/hold notification option is given but once I select to either recommend or cancel, and I hit recommend, it doesn't go through and send the recommendation. I even went to the browser site and tried with the same results. I need to know why this isn't working and how it can be fixed. I Would give overdrive 5 stars if not for this VERY frustrating issue. Help?
