Customer Reviews

Great content, app unstable

1. The app is unstable in offline mode. The app keeps playing, but the audio output is muted. If you press "rewind 30s" you do get another 10 mins out of the app before it happens again. 2. If an audiobook gets to the end, it is difficult to scrub back and start listening at an earlier point. 3. Scrub bar is far too small for longform audiobooks. The app should support ios' quarter and half screen scrubbing. 4. When downloading content for offline use, if your device goes into power saving mode (usually 1-2 minutes) the download stops and you have to manually restart the download. This is a poor user experience.

Keep at it, this will one day be a great app. Excellent content, great concept, but currently a rough app. I hope it gets there.

Great for borrowing books or music, just don't hit pause

I really like what this app has to offer. I love to try music before I buy and this app is wonderful for that. You can borrow music, movies, or other items. It works in partnership with the local library to offer these things (my library only offers music and movies). It's a great concept, but as noted by other reviewers, the app isn't stable. If I pause music while my phone is locked, with my headphones for example, it makes me log back into my account within the app. Then it doesn't show any of the titles I've borrowed, I have to exit the app and then go back in.

Needs some work

I must agree with the other reviewers. I have the Overdrive App which is similar to Hoopla in that you can listen to audiobooks from your library, so I was expecting a little bit more. The audio stops at random times while the book is still playing and you must pause and recap. This is annoying. The app also requires you to log in at random times, still annoying. I also noticed that there are not so many books by popular writers (not one James Patterson). I must commend their customer support because they actually replied back to my email concerning audio within a few hours and continued to try to help via emails.
