What's New in Version 1.1
- Added Library Branch Information
- Added Recommended Reading Lists
- Enhanced Search Filter
A step forward but two steps back - update
Update: the updates did bring back the location and hours. However, I would love to see the search feature say which branch an item is currently checked in. I loved that feature of the old app and have kept the old app for this reason. Would love to see this be a part of the current app.
I like the interface of the new update but I can't find the home page or where location and hours are located. It was super easy and intuitive in the old app. I hope there are plans to bring back the features that worked in the first version while integrating the new bookshelf interface.
I need to be able to add books to my "For Later" shelf rather than putting everything I select "On Hold". Being able to manage my shelves would be great.
Needs some work
There need to be more options to display information about books and materials and cross references. Items checked out that are due soon need to be more apparent. And from a visual appeal, sorry, but it's not attractive.
