My favorite audiobook service

The latest version, 4.11, crashes every time I open it. I know you will fix it soon, but I am in the middle of a book and this is very frustrating. That said, I really like The feature in Hoopla that enables me to check out any book in their holdings without having to be placed on the waiting list. Word of advice to new users: always use the bookmark feature when you are at a stopping point and need to use your phone for other things. Hoopla can forget where you stopped if you don't use this feature.
To the reviewer who complained that they could only borrow 6 titles per month, and couldn't keep the title on their device past the expiration date: the number of loans per month is governed by your library's contract. My library's current limit is 10 loans per month. You might ask your librarian if the loan limit can be increased when the contract is renewed, if they can afford that. As for the loan expiring before you are done, make sure you set the maximum loan period (3 weeks) as the default in the app's settings, and don't borrow more titles than you can read in the check-out period.

Crashes, but great when it works

Hoopla audiobooks have transformed my time in the car with my kids (errands, car trips, etc)!
Lately it crashes a lot, which is really frustrating. I have cell data turned off, so I have to wait until we get back home to delete and re-download the audiobook. Even restarting the app doesn't help.
The good news is that it always saves my place (or maybe starts me 1-2 mins before where I stopped), even if I delete and re-download the audiobook, or if it returns and I have to check it out again.
I love that there are no wait lists!! And the kids selection of audiobooks is more extensive than I expected.
A few tips: Be careful not to waste your check-outs on 3-min audiobooks of picture books. Many of them are barely understandable without the images. Also, look for "collections"; sometimes you can get a whole series of audiobooks for 1 check-out, instead of each book separately. You pretty much have to start at the beginning as there aren't any "track/chapters" to tell you when the next book starts, but it's been great for Beverly Cleary books!

Where are the audio book chapters?

Just updated my iOS to 10.3.1 and now the playback is completely incapacitated. I get a "problem occurred while trying to play this title" error message.

So first off, I'm grateful for this additional library of audio books that my library got us access to. My local library is awesome. I love and appreciate all their services. The audio book play back is reliable, but this app is missing some basic features. Compared to the Overdrive app that we also have, this one is lacking. I've yet to find the chapter guide for audio books, the only option seems to be to blindly skip ahead or behind. Also, how do I remove books from my currently borrowed books page? There are definitely times where I don't want to broadcast the book I'm reading. I love showing off the cool library features to my coworkers, but please let me hide the books that are not work appropriate.
Finally there seems to be something wrong with the chapters. I had to close and reopen the book at the end of each chapter to get to the next page.
