The Absolute Best

eReader in the RT store, imo. Scales beautifully for high resolution screens, has just enough margin, font, and background options to keep me satisfied, annotations, bookmarks, dictionary/web search for my own books as well as those I borrow from the library...Just download it. Thank you, devs, for your dedication and good work. I hope to see a universal app soon.

I have had great success using overdrive and getting books from the library. I enjoy the convenience of the quick downloads.

Previous problems with opening books has not recurred. Finding the authors that I want has been easy and I have been greatly enjoying reading this way. I still haven't mastered renewing books though it has been easy to go back in and reborrowing the same book.

More like 3 and a half stars

Overall a great ebook app but could use a few tweaks to make it amazing. One would be have more fonts like publisher's fonts (if it's an option) available so it looks like the print addition. Two text to speech for the sight impaired would be nice also. Yes I know you can listen to audio books with this app but sometimes the audiobook isn't available or there just isn't one offered. Those are the only things I would do. The interface is nice and easy to use.

Overjoyed with Overdrive

Wow! This app is great. I got hooked on audiobooks last year, which opened up reading to me as I could listen to a book while walking, shopping, watching a game, riding in a car, etc... no longer limited to activities where my eyes and hands were free. Overdrive is an app I use to access audiobooks available through my library. It's easy, straight-forward, and a joy to use. I can't imagine any other app could be easier.

Easy Access to Library eBooks and Audiobooks

Love this app. Provides easy access to eBooks and audiobooks online, across libraries. Includes setting holds on items, automatic checkout, and downloading materials to desktop, as well as virtual streaming via browser.

OverDrive App is a success

I really love this app as I listen to audio books during the day as I work. I'm going to give this app a rating of 4 starts, instead of 5, because I can't seem to get my phone to sync to my computer. Other than that....its the bomb.com. It's easy to use and has become a necessity for me. Enjoy!

I love that I can download Books for FREE!

I enjoy reading. I have a book collection at home and I have read them all, so I was happy when the library system came out with that you could borrow books, but over the internet (e-books and audio), and there is never a late charge. You have fixed my previous complaints that I had with the app, now I just have a couple more complaints. 1) on some of the books not all parts download, 2) I wish that all books audio books had mp3 capability

It's ok

It's minimally functional for me. This is my first e-reader and I've figured out how to do all the things I need, but it's often not very intuitive
