Simply Love...

This app is essential for accessing the vast array of audiobooks and e-books my library offers. It is quick to install, easy to learn, and use. Thank you for developing this app; I have borrowed books from my local library to my tablet while in Italy, India, and France. A further suggestion: is it possible to be able to sort "wish list" items into categories? It is so nice to browse and save to the wish list, but the list grows long, and it would be nice to be able to sort them into our own categories. Not essential though, and certainly is wonderful as it is. Thank you, again, this is a much loved and appreciated app!

Easy to use app - works with my lap top and my iPhone. Quick downloads from my library, easy to understand. Love it!

great app

It makes most any smart phone or tablet into an easy to use electronic reader. The only reason I gave it four instead of five stars is the fact that my new tablet is windows based, not nearly as user friendly as android. But that is a windows problem, the simplicity of use is impacted by the windows platform, especially Windows 8.

Very nice, easy to use. There are a few hitches. When I have reached my book limit and have read or listened to all of them it is very hard if not impossible to return the books. I have to wait for a book to expire before I can check out a new one. I also experience a problem listening with my phone. The audio stops completely at the end of parts and I have to manually reset to the next section.

I was not sure I would enjoy reading on the computer. Boy, was I surprised. OverDrive gives access to more books than I could ever read and I am easily zipping through my list. Access is easy to use. This has been a great app to use.

Easy Reader

Easy to use and easy on the eyes with 3 different settings from which to choose. Like the way it connects easily to my library account. Syncs the different devices I use.

Great App for all My Reading Needs

Good compatibility on many devices. Keeps passwords for multiple libraries. Some problems with history occasionally but it is a nonessential function. Fantastic app.

Most useful!

What do you do when you can't get to the library, and you don't have the money to buy a book? You open your overdrive app and get an e-book from the library! Easy to use and a lifesaver at certain times, I'm glad I have it, and I use it frequently.
