Yes!!!! Just more books
Yes!!!! Just more books
Please send out a new update to fix the bugs that make the app only stay on the same page when reading. It might be a problem between Apple iOS and the app.
App stopped responding again. Can’t do library search and can’t return to current book. Only fix I found is to reinstall. App is constantly reformatting pages. You swipe for the next page and the content on the current changes.
App keeps crashing when reading certain pages and after closing the app it doesn’t keep the place where it left off. When he app does work it is very nice to use, but it needs fixing.
What a pleasure to have found this app and the ability of libraries to share their books this way! I was totally turned off by the horrible website my library had for some time. When I recently discovered this app connected to my library, I’ve been so happy to be able to find free books to read and listen to! I can carry my “book” with me anywhere via my phone or iPad. It’s just great!
I’m home bound & at times visually challenged.. this app has made things easier❤️
Thank you so very much for this service. I am housebound due to chronic illness. I thought my Library days were over. I was shown this application by a Librarian friend and I will be grateful to the end of my days! Five gold stars from this happy patron.
Not enough audio books. Wait times too long. I love it when I can get what I want. Concept is great.
I love that I can read so much with my library card on this app. They even have audio books for when your on the go!!! I love my kindle app, but this is free. You just need a library card! I love it!
It doesn’t matter how well or badly the app works. No kindle support means no stars.
This app used to be great - quick downloads and fairly easy to use. Lately, however, every single time I open it, it locks up within seconds. Restarting doesn’t help, and it’s incredibly frustrating.
When you find the books it’s great! The most annoying thing I have found is that in some series it will maybe have 2 of the 4 books in a series and it won’t even be in consecutive order! Sometimes there is a stutter in the reading when it starts a new chapter. The renew button doesn’t always work and when I have gone to check the book back out I have been put back on the wait list for x amount of days.
Works very well with my public library! A great way to read and listen to books! Never any problems with this app.
Recently it will only play audio books for about 5 to 10 minutes and then crashes. Also, doesn’t work with play/pause controls on Bluetooth devices - sometimes will play will work, but not pause.
Cloud Library is a most excellent addition to my work and commute. I am able to access so many of the holdings in my public library’s collections and have found myself able to listen to audiobooks while at work and read when I am out and about without a book on me.
I want to say 0 stars but can’t send this without giving at least two, apparently. It doesn’t sync with the last location. It cuts out periodically and since it doesn’t sync with the last page read you have to go to the contents page, put in the chapter number (IF you can remember it!) and begin again. This happened five times to me in the same location, and then again at the end of the chapter. The page number isn’t displayed on the page unless you tap the page, so trying to find your last location is even more difficult. AWFUL, HORRIBLE APP!
My app has been crashing about every 7 minutes for the past 2 days. 😕
I listen to audio books and constantly have an issue, nearly if not every time I pause the story, that it skips way forward or way back, and I have to spend half my time trying to find where I left off. The options to go forward or back for a larger amount of time are too few and far between, so it is not helpful what so ever. My library went from Overdrive to this app, and I wish I had the other app back. Another complaint that I have is that the selection here was said to have been larger, but I’m not finding that to be the case. The search option requires specific spelling and complete titles, often I’m not sure of. The overdrive app had suggestions that helped me find what I was looking for. Also, this app doesn’t have a full collection of books in series. I could understand not having the lastest book in a series, but often I can ONLY find the latest of a series, which I can’t read bc I can’t find the previous books. It’s very frustrating and I’m disappointed in the app. I don’t have a CD player or tape player in my vehicle at work, so I can’t just checkout from the library. I’m very fed up and frustrated with this app, but I don’t have any other option from my library, so unfortunately I’m stuck with it. If updates become available with fixes to these issues, or if there is another way I can have some of these issues addressed, I’d be glad to receive that info and take it up with anyone who could help. Thanks.
Latest iPhone version repeatedly crashes when turning the pages of an ebook. Not every single page, but every few pages the app will crash and close. Also, the links for chapters don’t seem to work properly and the page count seems to be off. iPhone 6s Plus with current iOS.
It is wonderful having another source of free audiobooks and I thank my local library for the service. I listen on my Apple iPad Mini 4. Unfortunately, the app crashes frequently, thus having to restart many times. Extremely annoying. Hope this problem can be fixed. I was so hoping cloud library would be a favorite up there with Overdrive.
Horrible app. Hardly ever functions properly. Use Overdrive for another library and it functions much better
I use this app everyday!! Seamlessly works with my library card. Beautiful! Highly recommend!!
This app isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as other reading apps like Hoopla. But it’s simple to use and works without fail every time. Hoopla loses my place in a book all the time, but I have never had any issues like this with Cloud Library.
What’s not to like about this app. Free ebooks from my library with a large selection and never a fine for late returns.
Walking the dog and cleaning are tasks I enjoy doing when I have a story to listen to. Thanks for providing cheap entrainment. The dog and I are healthier and my house is cleaner.
Pro’s: It’s free Audio books work fairly well. Con’s: Very buggy. When I turn the page it sometimes skips over text. After waiting months for a book I finally got the message, “available today,” but there was no option to download it. I kept checking back, then suddenly it changed to “available in 265 days.” Can’t access flagged books of interest. It freezes every time I try. Highlighting is extremely difficult. Accessing footnotes is also very difficult. Search engine very poor. Filters don’t work. When I try to search for books that are available now it shows me books that are on hold. Can’t download in kindle format. Concluding comments: I was happy with Overdrive. I guess my library must save a lot of money with this app. I don’t understand the good reviews this app gets. My guess is that they base it on the audiobooks which work fairly well. When it comes to the ebook part of this app, please be honest. Stop giving good reviews. Maybe the developer would be more inclined to fix the many problems this app has.
I used to listen to audiobooks to & from work but unfortunately my new car doesn’t have a CD player. I have 3 apps to choose from for audiobooks and even between all of them I find that a lot of books that were avail on CD are not available as audio downloads.
You can’t search for books by publication date anymore, only purchase date. Thanks for all of the old books I get to choose from. I have had books on hold for over a month finally available to download only to disappear in a FEW HOURS before I can download them. They are supposed to be available to download for 3 days. What a waste of my hold space for the last month. Ugh. I wish our library would go back to Overdrive.
When I sort by publication date, I want to see the latest books on top, not the oldest. Is there a reverse sort button somewhere? Same with the recently added sort.
Has been a welcome addition to my reading but now has serious bugs. Crashes frequently, each time you open it loses your place in the book or even which book you were reading. Changing font size or margins makes the pages re-align sporadically making it hard to find your place. Going back to kindle and buying books. :(.
Finding that audiobook selection needs improvement. Also, random touch of screen changes reading location too easily. I know that operator error plays a significant role, but other reading apps are more forgiving. Still a very good reading app and highly recommended.
I love being able to pick out a book at 1 am in the middle of the ocean and read to my hearts content. The choices are many and love the note of how many days wait on holds. I have some trouble with the browser communicating with each other when I am on a ship, but I am slowly figuring it out.
Used this app successfully for sometime. Having issue today with app crashing while reading book. I have restarted iPad, deleted and reinstalled app and tried using in Airplane mode, to no avail.
The sorting by publication date no longer seems to work correctly
I have in app ratings turned off, and this app asked for a rating anyway. So, here’s your rating. Enjoy! Rating based upon 100% disrespect for my wishes, and violating my direction.
Every few chapters the app shuts itself off. It’s getting annoying
I really love being able to borrow books from the comfort of wherever I am with my iPad. There are 2 small improvements that would make me happy. I wish there was a column choice 1-2 or 3 without having to go to minute size text. Other apps have this and it is easier on the eyes. There also seems to be a huge jump from small to large text in some books (not sure if it is the app or the particular ebook). Otherwise this is a great app.
That last 2 books I checked out, the bookmark feature does not work. I’ll finish a chapter and bookmark it with the red flag in the top right corner but every time I come back to the book, the bookmark is not there or it’s at a point several chapters behind. Extremely frustrating and now a pointless non-operational feature.
So easy to use.
I have truly loved this app for a couple years now. Just last year alone I read 40 books and have had no issues at all. But recently I have become frustrated because my flagged book tab freezes then crashes the app. I have tried to wait it out hoping that I would be fixed but has yet to happen. Because of this I have looked into other reading apps but just haven’t found one I like as much. Please please look into this issue and fix it.
Crashes frequently on audio books, and lately has been draining the battery at a much faster rater, according to iOS. Other than that, it provides a good service.
Easy to access, great literature, dictionary available. All you need to enjoy a book is there.
This is a pretty good app. I really wish you could filter more things with searches. Such as books you can check out verses books you can hold. I think it would be great to filter out authors that you just don’t care for. The app is easy to use and it always works. I’ve never had it crash.
This is an amazing app love it
The "recently added" filter button does seem to work. Really hard to find the new books. Other than that great app. 8/21/18 What is wrong with this app! All I want to do is sort books by publication date how hard can that be? Well very hard for this app!
I am really enjoying this app!
I’ve been using this fabulous app for a long time but today when I went to browse my favorite categories by publication date, the results were books that have been out for years and multiple books by the same author. Some were classics like “Lord of the Flies.” There seemed to be no rationale for selection. I turned the iPad off and on to see if it would fix. But no difference. What happened?
This is a great app that makes it possible to read anywhere (or listen to audio books). It’s one of the best features of my local library!
This app is great. However, every time I click on my flagged books tab the app freezes. Please fix. I have about 20 books flagged for future reading and can’t get to any of them.
While reading, the app will freeze and completely shut off. I have set bookmarks and can get back to where i was, but it will freeze and do the same thing repeatedly.
