Doesn't work most of the time
Blank screen When I first opened this app, I was able to find my library and at least view the catalog. (Wouldn't allow me to sign in however.) Opened it a second time to try signing in and the profile icon disappeared. Opened it a third time (and all the times after I've tried) and all I get is a white screen with the header at the top. Profile icon missing, and now can't even get the option to search for a library to come up. Useless app.
Needs more work to be prefereable over logging into library website. Very poor contrast screens- from the start making it difficult to use (eg see where the library number/pin have to be entered) and small fonts (this on a 7 inch tablet) Also hard to see where to tap to carry out actions. It was not clear when an action had been carried out - in my case that a book had been renewed. There should be positive feedback when something like that has completed successfully.
New update is a disaster Everything I liked about this app - saved titles, toggling between hard copy listings and ebook listings - is now a mess and much harder to use (can't see more than 3 of my saved titles at a time??). The search function is an absolute joke - the results that come up have absolutely nothing to do with the search terms I started with. While the look is sleeker, this most recent update definitely did not do anyone any favors.
Since update I can't view or renew books on loan and my local library isn't listed. Shame as it was a really useful app.
Can't find my library and when I search for a book or any title it doesn't load
