Still not working properly. Half the time it doesnt sync with other devices. Also gets stuck on a page when I open the app.The only way it works is to search for books directly through the 3M cloud app then put on hold from library. If you have a book available on the NYPL site and try to check it out, it does not show up in the Cloud library. I do not like how you can't just download to device. Have to reload book every time device loses connection or wifi.
Too many things missing It is great that I can download and play the books. But all the other things that you use constantly use are missing. You cannot pause and play the book from the lock screen even though the book is shown as a notification widget. You cannot pause and play the book from a wired headphone. You cannot pause and play from a Bluetooth headphone. So you have to UNLOCK the phone, re-launch the app, find your book JUST to pause or play it. Totally ridiculous. I have to do this at least 10 times a day.
What's going on? I have had to uninstall this app twice since the new update? It freezes and won't play the downloaded book, or it will crash upon trying to play books. I chose to use this app when I can't find interesting audio books on Overdrive, but am considering looking for another app to pair with Overdrive! Please fix
Quirky, but works There are a few quirks I wish they would fix (It shouldn't close out your book when switching to off line mode, and it would be nice to have the option of using device brightness), but overall, it's a useful app, and more convenient than the other library apps I've used.
Ecloud Books I am one of the few who lost Overdrive books through my county Library. This was a great app for ebooks & audio books. Now using app. Not quite as good as Overdrive. Maybe you can work on improving it? One big annoyance is your bookmarks sucks wind. Should be able to go right to where you left off. Your audio/sound is very poor. There are other areas you need you improve, but work on first two gor now.
Developers could easily make it better The app has some odd stuff that could easily be fixed. For example, when I open the app, it should take me to my books by default. 19 times out of 20, I have a book and just want to listen to it, but the app takes me to the browse tab when I open it. Why not take me where I need to be most of the time? Also, why not let me sort or filter by the book rating? The app is pretty good overall, though there aren't as many audio books available as I would like.
