As a new user the experience is abysmal. The app is generally simple, fast, and functional, but there's no explanation for anything. I had to go learn on my own that I need a completely separate app to take out an ebook, and lost my hold because of my missteps in learning the process. It's not the end of the world, but a lot of frustration could be avoided with a better FAQ and/or UX development.

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.

For over a month nothing will update. My holds don't change. I can't delete holds or add more and my checked out items still say what I borrowed in November. Absolutely no way of fixing it on my end. This app is a waste of time and pointless.
