I really like Sails - convenient for most things. I request books and DVDs from our local library. Generally quick and easy to use. I wish I could set it to default to 'video disks' instead of 'all media' (changing each time I use it.) I *would* like to know why it needs each permission - camera (to scan bar codes), storage (?), Bluetooth (?), location, etc. I really dislike apps asking for more than needed. Overall, I use it frequently, and have for several years. I recommend it.

why does this app all of a sudden need location access and wont function without location access? pls turn that off. we were getting along just fine w/o that. at least keep it so it will work w/o allowing location access. really not necessary for finding books at the library

UPDATED: From 4 stars to 5. With the addition of hold suspension date details, this app now has ALMOST everything! I was previously tracking this information in BookMyne, a useful but somewhat aging and clunky app which I can now delete. One thing that would be great to add is the ability to *edit* hold suspension dates. Thank you, SAILS!
