This app allows for relative easy access to library eBooks as well as public domain literature. Easy to use the interactive dictionary is excellent

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.

as far as what it offers is concerned its up to mark, easy to use, fantastic. but it crashes often. needs to be restarted and every once in a while it goes corrupt and I have to reinstall it. please fix

Overdrive is the one I use for renting books. They're very easy to use and gives you access to public libraries, as long as you have a current library card of course, which is very convenient because you can borrow books for free. Excellent app and I can't think of any that's just as good as this one.

Library suggested I needed it to get E-books.

It's a little hard to figure out, but I've used it for a couple of months now. Yes it loses your place. Yes the over drive app on my phone lost a chapter in an audio book I was listening too. but I found the chapter on my laptop so, over all it's good way to read or listen to library books.

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!

Reviewer 5308 · 7/22/2015

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.

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.

On your phone they even return by the due date automatically and on your computer you can choose between Kindle and Epub formats to read how you like. Simple, instant and free, stop reading this and start reading what you want to read!
