It's easy to locate books and open. However, I don't see where I can adjust the listening speed. Also, when I want to see what track I'm on or select a different one if I need to back up, I have to start at track 1 every time. It would be nice if it showed the current track I'm on. It shows how much longer on my current track but I'd like to see how much longer is left on the book as a whole. If these items are on here, they are not a quick glance to find them.
I appreciate that the app doesn't make you log in every time. The books are also only shared by one library, unlike some other apps where the same book is available to multiple libraries. I can get more books when I want them with this app. It's also very user friendly.
Abysmal collection, virtually no history or current events non-fiction. Adequate detective/thriller section. Quite a bit of touchy-feely blather books. E-book print size doesn't adjust on android phone or ipad. Can't highlight to find word definitions. Disappointing, my library dropped OverDrive for this service.
No trouble logging in as with other audio/e libraries. Sometimes stops when devices connect to my phone's Bluetooth, no apparent reason. Great interface, easy to see info about what I'm listening to. No notification when my requested books become available though.
The glitchiest audiobook app I've ever used. Half the time I can't leave the app without shutting off the book. And why do I have to wait months for ONLINE audiobooks. The whole beauty of the internet is that everyone can listen to the same thing without stopping someone else. Hoopla and Overdrive are way better if your library uses them
Since I originally posted this, updates have taken care of my concerns. I enjoy the app now. I was forced to this app because my library dropped the one I had been using. When I'm listening to e-books, I can't control anything but the volume with my headset. Having to unlock my phone to pause and rewind is frustrating. It also doesn't have any sort of sleep timer, which I have used often in the past.
