Can we just take a moment to think that a publicly funded program made this app? Sure it's not perfect, but when you get it running, it sure does run. You can search from multiple local libraries at once, interact with your audiobook as a notification, have multiple people or locations on one card (*cough* Netflix) and so much more. I feel like the app really is intuitive and remembers me each time I use it. It's certainly my go to library app and I will miss it after I leave high school.

I love this app, and it makes reading so convenient compared to carrying around books everywhere. The highlighting, definition, and note functions are great. My only problem I have with it is that it's trying to be too much like a book. Sometimes I'm in the middle of reading and I put my finger down on my phone, making me go to the next page. If I could have an option to read each chapter by scrolling instead of turning pages, similar to Wattpad, I think the app would be perfect.

I LOVE this reading app! It's very easy and asthetic to use. I'm just super disappointed with a recent problem where I can't turn up the reading speed on audiobooks without the app giving me an error message saying that there's a problem with my internet connection--even though I have full bars. Otherwise, it's an awesome way to check out ebooks and read.
