What's New in Version 1.41
Solid app, but needs a dictionary feature.
I do most of my library-book reading on the Overdrive app, but a few weeks ago when I couldn't find a book in the Overdrive collection, I downloaded this 3M app and it did have the book I had wanted. I've used it quite a bit since, and mostly I really like it; I like the way the collection is organized, the user interface, and the bookmarking feature, which lets you type notes to yourself on each bookmark, on what looks like a Post-It. The one thing that kind of drives me nuts is that there's no dictionary feature! In Overdrive, you can highlight a word and then tap to look it up in a dictionary. You do need internet access to use the dictionary feature, but I don't find that too terribly inconvenient, and I'd like this 3M app to include a similar feature in a future update.
What I a librarian want in this app
I like you app. It is so much easier than overdrive and I have not experienced the crashing everyone else is talking about.
What I have is a list of wants in future updates.
The biggest is a too be read list. Some place to say hey idi not want to check this out now but want to remember it for later. Since the library sets the check out and hold limits, these can be very small and there are so many to remember.
Plus I would live a way to see books just added besides the shelves. Or to have a preemie t just added shelf with every thing added in Saha weeka
Best Library App I have ever used
Was worried this app would be hard to use but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use. I have used Overdrive in the past at another library and hated it because it is not user friendly but 3M cloud is very easy. I still prefer to look for books while on my desktop computer but when I find one I want to check out all I do is click and before I can reach across the desk and get my iPad in hand the book is already in my library.
