Review from A Google User
love it! this is such a great little app for me to access library books on the go...it's easy to use and reliable!
Great app with learning curve to find books My local libriary has a very limited selection of audio books, so after researching I found that the Fairfax Virginia library has a large selection and allows non-resident's to purchase a card. I found that the Overdrive search page connected to this library didn't work and was ready to give up when I tried their regular search page and tada, a plethora of books.
Great concept, buggy and poor UI When it works it's great, but it constantly gets stuck in weird modes where settings are inaccessible, I'm signed in but my bookshelf is empty, or the wait cursor is spinning forever despite a great Internet connection. This would be my favorite app if it worked correctly.
Hard to use I loved this app when I still had my iPhone however I converted to android and this app is not user-friendly. I can't even access my bookshelf easily. Actually, I can't access it at all. Major bugs. Not a fan.
Nearly Pefect It's a great app and it has some great functions, but it can be a little difficult to navigate. Tapping on a link can often take forever and be really slow to the point I've accidentally checked out books I didn't want to check out from tapping excessively thinking the app was stuck.
Kindle is gathering dust. Beats buying books and the being able to download audio books for offline listening is invaluable. Though you can read borrowed books in Kindle if you'd like, I end up using the native Overdrive "bookshelf" almost exclusively.
Awwwwwesome books on the go! :-) I have several devices that I've downloaded this app to and each one will let you know once it has synced to the app that you at further along on another device as long as on the last device you've book marked the page before you closed the app! ;-) THAT IS AWWWWWESOME IN MY BOOKS (excuse the pun)
