What's New in Version 2.3
-Enhanced support for multitasking on iOS 9, including Slide Over and Split View
-Miscellaneous bug fixes
Still Useless With No Voice-Over Capability
Unless you are sighted and have impeccable vision, forget this app! After several years, there's still no voice-over capability and the text that displays is tiny! Before you could at least open the links in Overdrive which does have voice-over. They need to bring the Overdrive open feature option back until they can get themselves caught up in the 21st century. If you can't afford or figure out how to create a full-featured app, at least bring back the work around so you don't seem careless about the needs of an entire group of people.
My main issue is you're scrolling through a category, click on a tile, and when you go back it takes you back to the beginning of the results. If you've been scrolling through pages of results, that's frustrating.
App keeps crashing
For over a week I've been unable to access this app on my iPad. It starts to open and this crashes. I love having the option to read electronic versions of books through my library. I hope you'll work out whatever the current bug issue is soon.
For me, this is a FIVE STAR app -- but since its crashing all the time, I can only give it ONE.
