Easy to use on my iPhone and iPad. Very nice. But it doesn't show my reserves that have not come in yet. I have 12 as confirmed with the library, but the app tells me I have none. Everything else is correct and accurate and I am gonna use the heck out of this app!
I have been using this app for months, and I can't think of a single thing to even improve it, much less complain about! We're heavy library users, and the app is flawlessly making our Requests, Searches, My Lists, etc. effortless to execute and maintain. A nice extra are the digital library cards. Even the layout is clear and easy to use. Info about the various branches is quickly accessible too. It's better in numerous ways than Libby and Overdrive apps. Our family loves this app. Please don't change a thing! 😍
Your app should be able to recognize an internal problem when your servers are down. Don’t tell the user their device can’t connect to the Internet and to move to an area with better reception. Your servers have been down for 2 hours that I know of and apparently no one in IT is notified when there’s a problem after hours to remotely login and fix the app and website. Your authentication servers are “overwhelmed” according to OverDrive so I can’t check out my ebook holds tonight before they expire. Otherwise my opinion of the app is it’s only good if I quickly want to see what I have checked out and it’s due date.
There is no longer a way to back out of the different menu options. You have to get back to home and start over. So if you want to make a search, you need to redo it from scratch if you click on a book from the results. And now today, the search no longer works all. Says there is issue on their end.
I’ve been using this app for about a month, and it’s shocking to me to see such a well built app for a library. Every feature I’ve gone to use in this app works, and I haven’t hit a glitch or hiccup yet! Highly recommend!
I use this app all the time & it works great! I like the fact that I can go into the library without my card & use this app to checkout! I recommend it to anyone who uses the library on a weekly basis.
I love this app when it works. I get an "authentication failed" as often as not when trying to log in therefore preventing me from actually being able to check out/download books. Also the ability to browse by subject would be nice, but even without that feature I'd still love this if it worked more often.
The app is very buggy and glitchy, and the library seems to have abandoned support and development. Slow, constantly kicks you out, and the features are not strong. It's a shame, because it could be a great product for library patrons, but obviously it fell prey to budget woes. It doesn't appear to have been well-built to begin with, and the complaints from a year ago haven't been fixed. Too bad.
I just started using the library and the app is completely useless. I just deleted it because of how outdated it is. Every time you try to renew a book, it just takes you to the log in screen again. With the younger generations being tech savvy, you need to have a good app if you want younger ones to continue using the library. I have never wrote a review for an app before and this is my first one because of how bad it is. PLEASE get a better app.
Seems obvious that you’d include something as basic as your library card barcode in this app, but it’s missing. Or, possibly not easily accessible. Was hoping this could save me from having to carry my library card around. Otherwise it’s a decent app. Definitely needs some work.
It won't let me renew anything from the app. I love being able to look up my account history and reserve things. I also like that it has links to Overdrive and Hoopla but I wish I could renew books. It just keeps looping through the log in screen over and over.
Extremely disappointing. I deleted this app within the first two minutes of downloading it, as it is completely useless and should be removed from the App Store. I gave it one star because I could not post my review with ZERO stars; however, zero is what it is worth!
I don’t really understand why they wont update this app. There are so many issues. From it not showing all the items search for to not renewing selected items. It is very buggy and no one seems to care. don’t download this app.
