Glad that it's free, but very disappointed
My library used to use overdrive. Overdrive allowed me to download in Kindle format, it also was much easier to highlight. Overdrive also had more formatting options, such as allowing columns and It has much more control over text size. I wish my library would go back to overdrive, but since that's not an option I hope this app gets updated so that it can catch up to overdrive.
Update... Rather than getting better the app seems to be getting worse. Sometimes I am not able to access any books. I get the message that I'm offline even when I have a good strong internet connection. I really miss Overdrive. I wonder, who makes the decision to go from a quality app like overdrive to one as inferior as this? Why did they make this poor decision? I wish I could talk to the people in charge and reason with them.
Well designed App
I have used Cloud Library (3M) for over 3 years. I am pleased with the variety of books offered and that new items are added frequently. Popular items often need to be put on hold, but that is true of the "brick and mortar" library too. Hold periods don't seem too long. I am pleased with the recent app upgrades that make it easier to use. I rarely have trouble downloading a book and if I do, I will try again a bit later and it will work. I find it convenient to transfer books from my PC to a second generation Nook e-reader via a usb cord. Also, it is simple to return books before the borrowing period ends.
This is the best app on my phone!! I love that I can read books on my phone during my train ride back and forth to work and then pick up my iPad at home and continue reading from where I left off. I also use Overdrive but it doesn't work nearly as well as Cloud. I do wish there were more selections on Cloud but being able to access and read books (even when the lights are out) that I don't have to pick, carry or return merits 5 stars in my opinion.
