Bug fixes and Re-branding
Ratings and Reviews
Wow… I downloaded this app so that I might be able to listen to some audiobooks from my local library. NO SUCH LUCK… I use computers extensively for work and am quite comfortable doing so; however, getting this app to work… Well, I may as well be trying to perform open heart surgery for it’s “ease of use”. Yuck… waste of an hour and a half (I’m using a brand new Mac… it’s not as though I were trying to install on antiquated technology).
This is a terrible app
I have been a happy user of Hoopla for a long time and unfortunately my library decided to migrate many of its holdings to RBdigital. I was saddedened—if it ain’t broke, why fix it? I liked browser based media playing—there’s no earthly reason this needs to be another dumb app. But I had no choice so I duly downloaded RBdigital and tried to load an audiobook.
In the menu all the chapters seem present, but when I go to play them half of them are repeats. Chapters are all mixed up, the tab for “Chapter 23" plays the audio file for chapter 22. The tabs for “Chapter 24” and “Chapter 25” both play the audio for chapter 23. “Chapter 26” plays the audio for chapter 25. Nowhere in the files does chapter 24 seem to exist.
The idea of breaking an audiobook into chapters is reasonable added functionality. The issue is that it is terrible implemented and that this is an awful app. Do yourself a favor and avoid if you have a choice. RBdigital is bad and there’s no way around it.
Pretty good, but missing key features
Overall, an okay app. It's missing an option to adjust the speed and I cannot yet access my magazines. Also the bookmarks button doesn't work. But I appreciate that unlike Hoopla, it has chapter markers, so I don't have to listen hard for the end/start of a chapter. But woe betide the person who wants to stop for the day in the middle of a chapter. I look forward to the upgrade.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
