Missing a crucial feature!
I use the app a lot more than the website to check my due dates on loans and renew them as it is far more convenient that booting up my PC. As a primary school teacher I often have 20-30 books out on loan at any one time for my book corner. Usually this will be for 6-8 weeks so there inevitably comes a time when I have to renew them all. Usually I will remember when I'm out and about and I like to do it there and then to avoid forgetting and then paying fines. Unfortunately you have to renew each book one by one. This is most irritating as the page refreshes between each renewal, almost as if it is reloading all the data for that page again, making the process take even longer than is necessary. There is no 'renew all' button or indeed the option to select multiple books and then renew those selected. I was surprised by this because I thought it was a rather obvious feature to have designed into the app from the outset. I'm no expert but surely it would be better if it downloaded your loan info, allowed you to make as many changes as you like locally on your handset then when you've finished it checked with the database again and reported back as successful or flagged up any issues? Hopefully someone will this kind of functionality soon. Apart from this it's a useful tool.
Accidentally found this app and it is so much more convenient than going to the website. Well thought out and works well. I can search for books or renew and is very simple to use.
A step in the right direction
Useful to have this as an app because I would agree with previous reviewer that the KCC website is painful.
Looking forward to improvements such as being able to search for local events by area. Also I just tried to renew a book but had to go to the main website to find out why it could not be renewed which was annoying.
However, a great technological step forward. Well done Kent Libraries.
