Love this app! But would also love a few updates


I love hoopla and use it almost every day. Mostly I listen to audiobooks while I'm working, either at home or at my job. It's a great concept with lots of content and I love that it's free through the library! Very convenient to be able to download content straight to your phone. THANK YOU for adding lock screen cover art in the latest update, looks so much better. There are a couple other things that I think could be improved though.

I would love it if there was some way to make LISTS instead of just favorite items. I would like to be able to make a list of books I want to listen to, or movies I want to see, or favorite books in a certain genre, etc. Right now my list of favorites is a mixture of books I have previously borrowed and liked, and books that I have never listened to and want to remember for the future. It gets confusing sometimes.

It would also be really nice to be able to listen to a short sample, even just a minute or less, before you actually commit to borrowing it, especially because with audiobooks there are often several versions of the same book read by different narrators, and having a good narrator can really make or break the listening experience.

I Live On This App


I can't believe how much I use this app. I'm on it all the time. Be it listening to audiobooks in my car, reading graphic novels on lunch breaks, taking ebooks on vacation, streaming videos at home, it's probably my most used app. It's not without bugs. I've had it lose my place a couple times when listening to audiobooks, though that problem seems to have been fixed with recent updates. It's also been inconsistent when it comes to syncing graphic novels across my devices. Sometimes I can be reading a graphic novel on my iPhone and then pick up my iPad and it will remember where I left off. Other times I can read a graphic novel on one device but it won't let me even download, let alone sync, the item to another device. Bugs aside this app has an intuitive interface, offers a great selection, and items are always available. What's not to love? My main real complaint is that I hardly ever make it into my physical library anymore because this app makes so much available at my fingertip. Great app!

The best app!!


I have a fairly long commute to and from work every morning and evening. I’d say between the car, the train and the shuttle ride it takes me about 4 1/2 hours and travel time. When I realize how much time I was spending commuting and not using that time as effectively as possible is when my father recommended this app. I am much more inclined to listen to audiobooks and read anyway so this is the perfect match. I hear everyone talking about this app audible, and I don’t see what all the hype is about. With this you can get five bucks a month free of charge. Well it’s not really free when you consider that it’s tax dollars that are being used to fund it. I read an article saying that the average CEO reads one book a week. If I stay on target I to read one book a year this week. If you don’t have this app yet, get it. Happy reading or listening to all the book lovers out there!
