Update 3.1 complete failure
The latest update that just came out totally made this app useless. It will no longer properly download books from one's library, which causes the books not to play. Overdrive wasn't a great app before this update but at least it worked. And this problem with downloading of titles is caused by the Overdrive app and not the library's so your local library will not be able to help you this problem. I find it absurd that a glitch this massive was allowed to occur, and that those responsible need to fix this problem immediately.
Fix this problem
So I'm frustrated because there isn't a way to contact OverDrive Support! My library isn't going to be able to fix this problem. Before the update that came out today I was able to swipe from right to left on my bookmarks to delete them. I'm unable to do that now. I have to do it the harder way. Can you please fix this? I'm sure it's just a bug and it's really not that big of deal. What's a bigger deal is that I cannot find a way to contact Support for the app.
I love this app, I use it to read library books all the time. It is really easy to read on an iPhone even. Only problem is sometimes with the audiobooks, it doesn't save your place. Otherwise, definitely recommend!
