My most used app

So, it's fair critiques that the interface for finding titles could use a couple improvements, and the app has occasionally gone nuts and forgotten where I was in an audiobook, but in the few years I've had Oberdrive, it is hands down my favorite app. A free app that lets me devour books from my library without having to actually go anywhere or pay anything, wow. I have plowed through so many more genres and titles than I had in years, curtesy of the pure convenience of this app. I've read novels on my phone, listened to environmental concerns while working and piled all sorts into my kindle for when I was really looking to get through some reading. The hold system of notifying me via email *and* checking out the book for me is beautiful. The lists feature may be clunky, but that hasn't stopped me from bookmarking dozens of books for when I had the right time to read them, and then reading sooo many titles I'd nearly forgotten about. My only serious complaint is that my library's collection isn't completely digital, yet.

Love but needs glitches fixed

I love audiobooks! However, I can't afford to feed my addiction on Audible with only one credit a month so I supplement with audiobooks from the library- specifically using the Overdrive app. It's mostly awesome, but there is a glitch that sends me into a blind rage. Why oh why can this app not remember where I left off and start playback from there?! It is immensely frustrating to have to search for my last stopping point. Mind you, I have learned to bookmark when I stop. But I also have noticed if I don't delete previous bookmarks after making a new one, then I still have to play "guess where I left off" when I open the book back up. Boo! Hiss! Please fix this Overdrive!!! I recommend it but leave you with these parting words... Bookmark bookmark bookmark!

***edit: I started deleting a file after I listened to it. It has help with Overdrive keeping my place more. And if it doesn't keep my place I don't have too much to search through to find where I left off.

The app's memory cost it a star

This app is an absolute lifesaver. Because I travel so much, audiobooks are my panacea against boredom, but I can't always afford to buy a book from Audible. Enter Overdrive and my local library!
This app allows me to peruse my library's online audiobook selection and quickly download books for a limited time (defined by the library, not the app). The playback is clear and the chapter menus are easy to navigate. My only criticism is the fact that the app loses your place a lot, not only when you return to listening after a hiatus, but sometimes when you're just trying to rewind a few seconds. The bookmark button can help combat this, but it's a bit frustrating to be forced to remember to place a bookmark simply to rewind 30 seconds. The Audible app never loses my place, even without bookmarks, so I know it must be possible to fix this. When it's fixed, I'll re-review with 5 stars.
