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.
Terrible app -- it's only available on your cell & it takes for EVER for books to load. I read my ebooks on my desktop, not a dinky little phone. Hope my library finds a better program soon.
Crashes Everytime Please update soon. Applications crashes everytime. Maybe make it accessible on computer as well as app.
Updated review: It's okay but sooooo slow and it still has the look of something that was designed for iOS and then transposed to Android...which is probably why it is so slow. I do like the selection of O'Reilly books. I want to see more. I'd also like to see EPUB format so that I can read it with more portable readers that extend to my Chromebook or desktop systems.
Improving user interface.
