I downloaded this app so I could renew my books on time instead of having to actual going into the actual website and having to renew. This worthless app, couldn’t do the job for me. I clicked on the book to renew and guess what?! I had overdue charges because of this dumb app that doesn’t work. DONT COUNT ON THIS APP FOR ANYTHING. WORTHLESS!!!!!

It works, I guess?


That cat spinning in that wheel must be using some crazy memory because this is the slowest app in the world. I want to call it "functional" but I think functionality assumes at least some efficiency, which this app completely lacks. In a pinch, it can get the job done.

Insanely slow.


This app has a lot of great features (ex. allowing you to scan your library card barcode from a picture, browse the catalog, etc.) but it just doesn't work.
