Streamlined & Easy to Use
This app is great as it allows you to browse, download, read, and listen to books from your library all within one easy to use format. I also really appreciate the sleep timer for use with my audiobooks. Sometimes the audiobook will reset its spot to the beginning and you have to figure out where you are. I do wish this small glitch were resolved and that it would allow bookmarks and notes on the audiobooks.
An additional feature that would be beneficial is if it would tell you when a book is about to expire and allow you to renew it from the same "warning." So often, my audiobook will expire before I complete it but when I go to renew it, there are no copies available- thus, I have to abandon it, at least for a time. Obviously this is not a fault of the app, but further features to assist in this regard would certainly be an advantage.
Great for book lovers!
My fiancé and I have both used OD for a while now and have only good things to say. Neither of us are able to drive out to our local library very often so through this app we are able to get the books we want without the drive. The app is easy enough to use. Works great with out local library and I have had no trouble downloading books. Other reviewers mentioned it should give a warning and it does day on the title "expires in X days" so that you're aware the title will need to be renewed. I have had no issues with pages or navigation through the book. I can only give this app 5 stars but I would give more if I could! It has allowed me to read many books I would have otherwise never had the chance to check out!
First off, I would never leave a one star review without first contacting the app developer. I searched but could find no way to contact the developer. If you can’t find an answer on the website or if the suggestions don’t work you’re advised to contact your lending institution.
My problem is that I am unable to download a book borrowed from my local library. The download begins as it should but when it’s finished and processing, I get the message: unexpected error, try downloading again. If error persists, re download book from your library. Did all of this at least a dozen times. Also deleted app from devices and library and re installed. Same error keeps recurring. The epub file is apparently okay since I am able to open it in Bluefire reader. So it’s not like I can’t read the borrowed books. I can download them in Kindle format also. But the Overdrive reader looks like it has some cool features I was anxious to try out. And that’s why it’s frustrating. iPad Mini retina and iPod touch 5.
