App Reviews

  • I am reading again!

    By Sailing Chic
    This app has helped me read books again. For a few years now I have been so busy and cannot find time to read. With this app I can! Now I download audio books (for free) to listen to while I drive in the car or in my headphones when I walk or if I am waiting at the doctor or for a meeting or out walking. This is great, because I have books on my mobile device that I always carry- I always have books with me. I also download books to just read on my mobil device and I don’t have to worry about late fees. My elderly mom who was an avid reader but has had eye problems of late is now able to “read” again too, because of the audio books. All this takes is a library card. So simple. The only downside is sometimes the audio versions of a book I want are not available, so I have to get the digital one and I have to stare at a screen to read & that I cannot do while I drive, workout or walk. More audio versions would be nice if possible, please!
  • Buggy for kids books

    By CRichardsMN
    This app is great for kids books from the local library, but many other of them are formatted such that they would require adjustments. Sadly, the controls are mostly unresponsive - moving pixels at a time... needs major help... Updated - still a mess for many kids books and adjustments majorly lacking. Trying to get to the “hidden menus” are painful at best. Put a button on there, geez... Also, please put a restart button or auto rewind after finishing the book - anyone remember VHS? Yeah, try explaining it to a toddler and that “we can’t read that book anymore because you can’t get to menu to go back to the beginning” - even after returning and reborrowing it keeps its place... App also regularly crashes on books over 20 or so pages and it can’t ever keep track of preview thumbnails. I mean seriously, 6 books all labeled differently and have the same book cover and content as the one that is opened first when app is launched. Only way to fix it is to return and redownload the book. Wouldn’t use this app if it were a paid app, only use it because I haven’t found another app to access local library content. Downgraded to 1 star.
  • Wonderful Ebook app

    By numbekrsnutz
    This app was specifically designed for libraries at no charge to them or library patrons unlike Kjndle/Amazon which does charge libraries for the use of that app. This helps to reduce the cost of ebooks to public libraries enabling them to purchase more hard copy books and ebooks. No, I am not a librarian, just a huge book lover who reads anything of interest and have done so for many, many years. I have found this app very easy to use and I am 71 yes. old who still reads actual books but large print books in libraries do not include a large selection due to their higher cost. This app allows me to read new books via my tablet and still allows me to check out hard copy books, too. Unlike Overdrive, there is a far greater selection of books available through this app which I, for one, really appreciate! Thank you, 3M, for creating this app for our public libraries!
  • Poorly-Designed User Interface and Functionality

    By aFewCatsShort
    Suddenly the eBooks from my library are available only in this format, rather than Kindle. It was okay, definitely not great, for the first couple books I read using this app. But the search capability isn’t very useful, and the text selection ability is awful (I still haven’t been able to get copying to work at all, or to highlight or look up more than one word at a time). Now I’m trying to read a publication that has copious footnotes, which I would dearly like to read. Although they appear as blue superscript numbers, they aren’t active, i.e., you can’t tap on a footnote number, read the associated footnote text, and return to where you were in the main text. No, you have to set a bookmark for the first page of notes at the end of the book, activate the menu, select Notes/Highlights, and then navigate through to the desired numbered footnote. And then, it seems, you have to navigate, via the Table of Contents or the bottom page slider, back to the page you were previously reading.
  • Handy, and improved

    By Ochrequills
    I employ this app often as I am passionate about audiobooks. I listen to one to three books a week. Availability of books is dependent on the library of course but I do like the ease in bookmarking books while listening. I have learned how to program my preferences in browsing and have them remembered-note: you have to hit “star” icon. This app used to be a little buggy but it has improved dramatically. I do like that there are no extra steps between borrowing and downloading books. I can find out that a book is available to download and just immediately download the book, I don’t have to go to the web based account to connect a loan to the app (which is required by another app). There is a drawback to this app in adjusting listening location mid chapter but this is a pretty minimal issue. Glad to be able to use this app through my library.
  • Mostly happy with it

    By PeebeeMD
    I like this in some ways better than Overdrive or the new Libby, but one thing needs changing. When you have a book checked out, it would be helpful to see what the current wait time is for the book. I'm constantly having to decide whether to turn in a book I haven't read when another one I have on hold is available. When I can't see how long the current hold time is (which I can in Overdrive) I have no basis for deciding whether to read one of the books in 3 days because it'll take months to get it back, or whether to turn it in and pick it up again later. Otherwise, I think it works really well. One other issue, which isn't the app's fault....I wish my library would post new books more often -- sometimes they go months after new books are released to add them to this app.
  • Great except when it crashes

    By Zestbeth
    I love the convenience of this app for listening to audiobooks. I appreciate the hold feature, the ability to flag books and suggest titles. What I dislike is that the app frequently won’t allow me to scroll through my list of flagged books, forcing me to either close the app or wait for it to crash on its own. This is extremely frustrating. I’d like to see enhancements to the flagged book list. For example, it would be wonderful to filter the list by what is currently available to borrow, as well as audio vs. ebooks. While these filter options are wonderful when browsing the entire library for books, it would be helpful to be able to filter searches within my own flagged book list. I realize this is likely asking too much at the moment considering how simply viewing my list seems impossible lately.
  • Irritating

    By upyri_vervain
    It’s better than nothing I guess since I don’t have another option, but since my library switched I can hardly get any of the books I want, especially audiobooks. Every time I request through my library I get rejected; and as far as I know the app doesn’t offer the option to request stuff directly to them. Which overdrive/Libby did do. I think there’s so much improvement needed and they should take a lesson from their competitors. This App was supposed to make things easier not irritate everyone. I wish our suggestions were actually taken and not overlooked just because we aren’t developers. And don’t even get me started on the computer app version, I’d be better off just uninstalling it, since I can’t even listen offline, or download anything on there. Speaking of downloading overdrive took like a couple minutes, this app would probably take an hour or more, and I know 100% it’s not my WiFi that’s the problem.
  • Needs to be fixed!!

    By Darlagb
    Update: was updated recently and now it won’t do anything. It either gives me an error or just sits and spins. I’ve tried checking out the books online through the library website as a workaround and get the same error. And for the person who thinks my library will help if only I ask...nope. They tell me it isn’t a fault with them and they can’t help. The fault is with the app. Previous review: Earlier this week the app was down for "improvements." It is back up again but I can't download any book that I check out from my library. I can borrow the book, but that's worthless without being able to open it up to read. My library tells me it is an issue with 3M and I will just need to wait until they update the app. Seriously, if you are going to shut things down for improvements you should make sure you don't make things worse. I had absolutely no problems before they shut it down.
  • Couldn’t be easier

    By keeperbt
    I have found a joy of reading again as I can keep working around the house or running errands and still enjoy a good book! I have loved the selection and the simplicity of downloading and playing my books. There has been a few issues from time to time where it acts a bit glitchy, like saying the book isn’t available but if I shut it down and restart the app it usually will work. The one thing I can’t figure out is why there is a time limit on the books as it is a digital book and not a actual physical book. It is kept on a server not on a self so am not sure why there is a limit on the time. I have been happy with the service and would recommend it to others.
