Sadly my library have given me no choice but to move to this app from the vastly superior Overdrive. Settings are very limited. Please incorporate turning pages with volume buttons so that i can read one handed. A choice of fonts would be nice. Page turning is so painfully slow I have to tap the right of the screen well before reaching the foot of the page to avoid the frustrating lag. Much room for improvement.
If I could give zero stars I would! I can't even select my country, it keeps popping up with a "network errors notification. I'm connected to Wi-Fi and I tried it on 4G dats and that didn't work either. So pissed that I can't log in on my new phone to read my downloaded books.
This app started off as a poor relation to Overdrive which my library used to use. It has been improving steadily with more books becoming available (probably my library's issue rather than CL's) and has further improved with tap to turn albeit a little tardy compared with Overdrive. However, why does it feel the need to open up every time with books available from my library? I would like initially to go to My Books which surely is the most common requirement.
Update destroyed most useful reliable app function- the dictionary lookup. Now, if you're lucky enough to get any response when you touch a word, you have to find and select "define". Now it's FASTER and less of a pain to use a physical dictionary!
It's just okay. The most frustrating thing is when listening to the audio books, the last five seconds of the chapter gets cut off as it advances to the next. I keep having to go back and forwarding to the end to hear what I missed! I'm on my third book and it's the same issue each time. So very annoying.
Subverts system settings: Screen brightness can only be changed in app which is annoying when switching between light and dark environments. The app has a screen rotation setting (defaults to enabled) that overrides the system setting. It's very annoying when one app behaves differently from the entire system. After the most recent update page draws are sluggish. The Windows app will sync progress from this app, but this app didn't sync to progress from the Windows app.
Brings back the page turn by tapping margin. Refreshed interface for reader font and margin control. Increased default reading font size on upgrade. Fixed bluetooth audio control for Lollipop and above.
