What's New in Version 3.1.10
Fix for library event time format.
Can we have more tools, please?
I love all the books that I can access through iCloud, but I would like to see some more options.
1. You get a 14 day check out whether the book is 200 or 1400 pages. Need a 21 day check out for those super long books.
2. It would be great if you could see if the book you are reading has a hold on it. Sometimes I find myself binge reading to finish a book because I don't know if it's going to be available to recheck.
3. Two books I had on hold become available 1 day apart, and I was 4 days in on another book. It would be great to have the option to "bump" yourself one spot on the wait list -one time per hold- for those times when you can't get to the book, giving the next person a go without having to move to the end of the line.
Keeps shutting off😡
My local library recently switched from OverDrive to 3M cloud library. I have been VERY disappointed. I like to listen to books while I am doing yardwork, however, with this app, my audiobooks keep shutting off. The last thing I want to do is reach my dirty hands into my back pocket to re-launch an app and start my book again. If it only happened once, no big deal. But it happens several times an hour. Soooooo frustrating. My phone has the latest iOS update and this is the only app that I have issues with. I wish my local public library would switch back to OverDrive.
Oh, and I should mention that many times the search function is not working so I can't even look/download a new book. At one point I thought something was wrong with my phone but the search function was not working on my iPad either. Very disappointing.
Most used app on my phone
I LOVE this app and I'm so grateful that my library uses it! I work with my hands and I love being able to "read" all the books I want while I work! I often go through an unabridged novel in a day. No more late fees, forgetting where I put the book, etc. I download a couple of books at home over wi-fi and I'm set to work or drive or even sit and wait for appointments (with earphones). Hands down, my favorite app!! Have shown it to several friends, and a couple of them from other states have asked about it at their libraries and encouraged them to get it! Every library should use this!!
