Wish it was a little better
So this app is very good. Like exceeding my expectations. It has many pros and few cons but the one issue I have is that sometimes, the library doesn't have to whole book series, just one out of the rest and it's upsetting since the actual library(not online) would have the hardcover/paperback version. I enjoy using the ebook system since it returns automatically and just puts the books you had on hold into your loan section. But if the online library is willing to perhaps finish some of the series it has left hanging, I would be grateful. I enjoy the many other options it has but also about the genre, it would be nice to list more than one genre when trying to find books you are interested in reading. Not just that genre. And maybe separating manga from actual books? Like give manga another genre of its own or another area where people can find it. Not just piled with a bunch of other English books. Thank you! I will still be using this app though as it is 10x better than Kindle in my opinion. Just want some minor fixes.
Absolutely love this app!
I absolutely love this app! I use it almost every day. I love that I can borrow digital books right to my Kindle. And I love being able to borrow audiobooks and listen to them right on my phone. It's also great that I can download the Audiobooks to my phone, because sometimes I'm in areas where Internet access is spotty. Other advantages: 1) the app is free, borrowing books is free, just like a physical library, you pay for nothing, 2) if a book is not available, you can go on the waitlist and it will automatically borrow it for you when it becomes available and send you an email notice, 3) you can listen to audiobooks anywhere from 1.25x to 2x regular speed, which is nice when you have several checked out and only a couple of weeks to get though them all, 4) in some cases when you haven't finished a book in time, you can check it out again right away. I actually have no complaints about this app whatsoever. I love it!
Love this app!
This app is freaking awesome! Always read old school paper until need came along via chemo to explore audiobooks. The need is temporary, but after downloaded OD this 53 yo easily figured out app all by herself. I have borrowed Audiobooks / eBooks (mostly cookbooks. haha), downloaded files and returned them (usually early) all with great ease. I love that OD is its own MP3 player. Of course, I had a learning curve and was originally listening in Safari, but, like I said, I figured it out. Somebody wrote earlier that they couldn't figure out how to return their books early… when you're on your Bookshelf look in the upper right hand corner and touch the Edit button and look what happens. Ta da! A Return box appears below the title! The thing is, once the blurry eyes go away I'll continue to check more books out and read on my devices because of all the exploring I've done (I've amassed a bit of a Wish List. hehe) and because of this super great app! If I can do it, so can you.
