Usually I appreciate tech upgrades...but this...?...this is retrograde...!
User unfriendly...big time...!
Victoria content editor
Usually an early adopter, I found this iteration of the app clunky and not intuitive. It does function well enough once you figure it out, but the interface is generic and far from friendly. There was an opportunity to curate content tailored to both the user and the excellent library system we have in the CRD, but instead we have a generic service 'powering' our recommendations and a stark lack of original content (unless you count a link to FB). I'd be shocked if any front line employees were consulted on function or the form of this change.
Praise to the computer techs
Thank you so much for fixing this app!!! I was so sad when the last one just wasn't working as well as it could! This app is awesome and brilliant, thank you so much!
