Underdeveloped, poorly designed, but useful.


You can not get out of the settings without completely closing and reopening the app.
It needs some work but is a good idea.

Nice idea, needs some work


I agree with other reviewers about the problem with the drop down menu to select library location when trying to reserve from another system- this is an ongoing problem that has yet to be resolved. Also, the app continuously reverts back to the login page to enter credentials before moving on. While the login information is retained, you cannot move from one screen to the next without frequently returning here. Weird, and annoying, although eventually it can be done.

Authentication failed - and no in-app support


I really want to like this app, as it seems like it'd be perfect for reading on my iPad, but every time I use my library card number and PIN, it just says "authentication failed," and refuses to log me in. I know I'm using the right login info, because I can log into the library on my web browser, but the app won't work for me at all.

There's also no "help" section to report these kinds of problems and errors, which is frustrating - hence my review.

So, if an admin could look into this issue and clear it up so everyone could log in, I'd really appreciate it!
