This is pretty cool! I like the concept and accessibility. I love everything about it. However, I believe there's always room for improvement since I very much agree that UI/UX aspect of it is not up to par. Here's a list of room for improvements: -letting users select multiple books to drag and drop into their shelves -fonts and coloring for reading should be better -ui for bookmarking were not obvious -download should be faster -there should be a tutorial on how to download these books for users who aren't technologically savvy
Why is my library paying for this? Haven't used in a few months but trying again. A lot of the well known popular books and authors aren't available. I feel like this is another outlet for Indy/lesser known authors to try to advertise their books. I can get a lot of those types of books for free at Amazon. Stop wasting our money and purchase better books on Overdrive.
Terrible interface The screen shots on the Play Store page show some sort of controls. Not on my android tablet. No "preferences", no way to adjust size, brightness, etc. This just looks like something from 10 years ago. And since my library requires it for their ebooks, I guess I'm stuck. Very disappointing.
Hideous UI When searching, hold the phone very steady - chsnging from portrait to landscape erases your results. The back button sends you all the way back to the opening screen, therefore never make a mistake. Be sure to click on "read" twice, so the app knows you're serious about wanting to read the book you requested. At least the text is readable.
This app requires logging in with your library credentials. This company (or anyone who gains access to their database) can see or change anything in your library account - name, email, phone number, book checkouts, etc. Who knows how they store, secure, and use this info? Nobody should give a third party their login info, and libraries should not encourage this reckless and irresponsible request by TotalBoox.
Doesnt allow you to read books on Kindle or other E-readers. Only allows you to read on mobile devices. Awful. Never going to use it. Might tell library to stop paying for this service unless the allow you to read on E-readers.
Improving user interface.
