Ratings and Reviews
Worth the download
I find the app is helpful with the my account quick links to the desktop website. The digital library card does not scan at the library registers though, and the catalog search all feature is not functioning. I haven't tried the self checkout feature, but I've also never had a problem finding an open checkout register at the library. Overall I would say this app is helpful to see what you have checked out and items you have placed on hold. Worth the download in my opinion, especially if they fix the catalog feature.
Better than the last one
This is a good start and far better than the previous "Boopsie" app. That said, there's still room for improvement. I shouldn't have to log in again to pay fines. The delay when pulling up my patron record is a few seconds too long. Choosing to open the OverDrive app doesn't actually open the app, it opens the App Store, so it requires yet another click. With a few tweaks, this could be a great app instead of just good.
I had high hopes for this app since the previous one was so basic. But this one is just a more colorful version of the old one. You still have to click a bunch of times to renew items and it is missing the most important upgrade - notifications of late items!! Plus the catalog search hasn't worked at all. What a waste of time and money.
