You can also lent eAudio and eMusic titles, listen to them via streaming or download them directly onto your device. Following the same principle as the web-based Onleihe, the lent titles can be consumed free of charge for a certain set amount of time. Afterwards the titles will automatically be returned to the library.

You can search directly throughout the app or browse the collection of your library through different categories and eMagazines. On first sight, you’ll see if a title is available and you can alter your search results with an wide array of different filter or sort options.

The detailed view of a certain title will give you all the information you seek, from the name of the book, the author, to the series name, length and much more. If a title is temporary not available you can also reserve it. As soon as the title is then available for you, you will get an e-mail notification to the address you specified. Your reservations are easily accessible with an overview and you can directly lent the titles if they are available. Should you no longer need an ongoing reservation or if you do need to change the address, you are able to edit or delete your reservations.

It doesnt work well

This app is a true disappointment :-(
I love listening to audiobooks but with this app you can only stream and not download. As soon as my phone goes in lock mode, the app stops working. I also get many error messages and everything just freezes or shuts down.
Needs updates!!!!!!!

The good old days...

I used to love this app...

But since the last update it doesn't work for me anymore. As soon as my phone locks itself, the app stops working. Pretty annoying, especially when the playback is skipping and you miss parts of the story... Hope they'll fix it soon!


Extrem frustrierend

Katastrophe, wie die anderen Reviewer auch schon sagten. Stürzt dauernd ab, laedt nur ganz selten etwas reibungslos, und auch dann extrem langsam, herunter. Unglaublich, dass sich die Bibliotheken damit zufrieden geben, da es andere apps gaebe, zB Overdrive, die tadellos funktionieren.
