Review from A Google User
Pretty Good This is generally pretty handy - a smooth ebook reader that interfaces well with my library. All of the updates to far have been great improvements on a decent product.
Amazing for audiobooks! Okay for ebooks. So essentially I LOVE this app for checking audiobooks out from the library. It's easy to download and use, audio quality is good, it's easy to go back a bit if I missed part of it, and there is a great selection. Oh! And you'll never get charged for overdue books! It just lets you know how long you have left and then the books are deleted.
Great but I want one thing changed Love the app. Works great. Love that I can save the book into my device and save my data. The one thing I want changed or the option added is I hate having my lock screen background be the books cover art. If I'm listening to a book on the way to a meeting and while in the meeting I awake my phone to check the time. I don't need anyone looking to see what I'm reading. Other apps have the option to turn this off.
Overdrive is a great app in theory The app gives anyone with a library card access to a large amout of material, books, audiobooks, and video but the interface leaves a bit to be desired. The bookshelf and the on loans section should be combined but it isn't once you get a book on loan it should show up in your bookshelf. Kinda hard to figure out what books or material you have access to.
Been using this for years Had this since my Galaxy S3, even better in the S7. Works with my kids ipads as well on its own or with the Kindle app. Nice sync. Easy to use but sometimes once I've downloaded a book it takes a few less intuitive clicks to get to that book the first time. Easy after that. Reading on a phone is a pain so I mostly do audio books. Would like to see full series of books, but I think that's more my library's choice. Enjoy!
Overdrive Has Changed After the latest update, I no longer like trying to check my list of borrowed books. I used to be able to easily look to see which borrowed book I would like to read next. Now, five clicks, ten clicks on their "stack of books" I either receive no reaction from the app, or I continuously get routed into the latest suggested reads. BTW, how about changing those suggestion books to the genre of books I actually read. After 8 years of continuously borrowing books, you should have learned I prefer audiobooks!
Overdrive is great This last update really fixed my few complaints, now it allows Overdrive to open in browser for access to public libraries while personal APP library is open in app . It allows just a tab back and forth without having to sign in each flip. Much more user friendly, simpler to waitlist and recommend books. I strongly recommend it if you love to read
