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!
You get what you pay for I love listening to the free audio books so thank you public libraries! The overdrive app is slow so I open in my web browser. I ask for SciFi and end up with Whodunnits in there as well. you have to fish around for the next book in a series, it will bring up all the books it just won't tell you in what order even if I sort them by release date. I love the variable sleep timer & the price tag: free! I'm looking forward to overdrive 2.0.
Overall a great app I love using overdrive for audio books. I would suggest a few changes, though. One, I direct the downloads to my SD card, but they don't seem to go there, as whenever I download a book, the app takes upwards of 600 MB internal on my phone. Two, I would love if we stayed logged in to our libraries. It's annoying to log in to each of my four libraries every time. Last, I prefer the interface of the in-browser player, particularly the ability to scroll through the time - much more user-friendly.
Nice Love the app and the thought behind it. Syncing seems an issue sometimes though. Often starts playing at an earlier point than where I left off. Also, it would be nice to be made aware of missing files, before running out of story whilst on the run....Those are minor issues though, overall it's easy to use and consistent.
Reading Junky I read every single day. The biggest problem I have is finding new authors as I've read everything my faves have ever written. Surprise, new titles and authors are added often. I got an e-reader before a surgery cuz I didn't have room to pack a dozen books while in hospital. Best purchase ever, best reading app ever!
Happy Now 9/1/16 Its been working great for quite a while now! Back to loving it.---------------------------------------------- Won't let me sign in. Makes me choose my library over and over again, but never signs me in. Whatever "update" that was really sucked. **Had to uninstall and then reinstall the app just to get the little "Go" button (after you pick your library) to show up. So far, its working now. I shouldn't have had to do that.**
Really good app It's wonderful to be able to borrow books, or audios, with this app. I belong to a book club and it was getting expensive to read books I had no intention of keeping. There are a few, however, that I did buy after reading, or listening to. At least I have a choice. Plus, it's convenient to reserve a book; it would be the same wait whether at the library, or online.
