What's New in Version 5.07

Antiquated & Awful: No real value
The app is horrible. To me, it seems as though the city library hired someone to put this together in a matter of hours - and called it good.
The interface is clunky and fails to load or search content so frequently that it's just easier to use the website. The app has not been optimized for the larger screen sizes of the iPhone 6, 6 plus or thr 6s series of the same dimensions.
Also, the app tends to crash on newer devices, from what I assume is a lack of coding updates to fit with newer releases of ios.
It seems as though the developer has abandoned any further updates to this app.
If so,Why is the county allowing such a horrible app to still exist?
Not finding catalog items
When I use the search in the app it doesn't always find items that are in the catalog; when I go online to search for the item it appears.
The app hasn't always been this way though. Fix please!
Design + Passbook
Needs a better design, and please add passbook functionality to the card - that would be wonderful thanks!
