Love BorrowBox, it does what it should, I can't ask anymore than that. The range of books available is down to your library service, mine is adding titles constantly. It gives you the opportunity to read authors you may not usually read, you don't like a book just return it & get another. Does audiobooks took, my library service has a decent range.
If I was to suggest one improvement, I would like to create a reading list, so books I may want to read in the future, I often see books I'd like to read, but am at my limit, I then forget or can’t find them again. This Improment could make an already excellent app even better.

Longer renewals please?


I need large print, & by adjusting font & size, it’s just about large enough on an iPhone 6. However, because of focussing problems, reading is very slow for me, & only being able to renew once, means books are usually taken off me before finished. I then have to wait until they again become available.
Large print physical books can be renewed 10 times. Could the ebook renewal periods be extended, for those of us who love reading, but have special concessions due to sight problems?
It’s also a shame that Borrow Box disables the screen-reader function, which I could otherwise use to continue with the book once my eyes have given up.
I do love borrowing both audio and large print books & reading them on my phone. Many thanks 🤗

Good when you can actually borrow something


When I find something relatively high profile or well known, I’ll be very lucky if it isn’t on loan already. While I understand that in a library environment you would have to wait for books to be returned. I don’t understand why, in an audio only download, you can’t have more than one version of that download available at one time. Especially if many people are reserving it.
So good when I actually borrow something, but kind of frustrating too.
