Great way to check out books. User friendly!
Love it 5/5
By Redwood Bug
Easy to use!
When it works it's wonderful, but 2/5
The support is slow and the app can stop working without warning or solution. Unreliable.
These is one of the best thing that I did. I am really enjoy the Ebooks
Thank you so much for this app
Great app! 5/5
You can't go wrong with these apps that connect into the library system. They're fantastic. Highly recommend!
Thank you Axis 360!
Great app 5/5
I've been using this app for st least a year for library books. It's wonderful. Very easy to use and I love that the book returns itself when it's time. Thank you Axis 360 for a great app.
Skipping chapters 1/5
I'm so addicted to audiobooks that I can't drive without having a book read to me. However, since the last version update I have been experiencing chapters skipping ahead sometimes up to 10. This is annoying to the point that I can't listen to books in my car anymore. I really hope this is issue is being addressed.
Not only is this app horrendous, now it's blocking reviews. Go axis 360
Great ebook app! 4/5
It took me 4 books to figure out the super-easy return swipe. Otherwise, this is a great app that I love using.
Really great app 5/5
Great App! 5/5
I use this App a lot and have found many new releases for my favorite authors that my local library doesn't always offer with OverDrive. The wait time for books On Hold is much shorter than with my library as well. And your Wait List and Wish List are much easier to manage, too. I just wish there was an easy way to sync my iPhone and my iPad. Fix Syncing and this App will get my 5th star! If the Kindle App can sync my 3 devices, why can't Axis 360 sync my 2!
UPDATE 21 Sep 17: Thanks to the latest update this App can now Sync my two devices! Yeah!!! Thanks so much! Now, if Libby by OverDrive can just get their syncing fixed permanently, I will definitely be one happy eBook reader!!
Great app 5/5
Works great for me to get library books in San Francisco. It even remembered where in the book I was on an expired loan when I got that book again.
Love Axis 360 5/5
It's easy to access, great selection. I love the hold feature and the wish list. My only complaint is that they don't have books for children . I'm a pediatric home health nurse and love reading stories to my patient. I still get hardcover books from library so I'm definitely have a huge choice of books !Thanks to Axis 360,
I love it 5/5
Easy to use 5/5
Easy to use, easy to look up words and remembers my library card every time.
Can’t manage multiple libraries 2/5
By Phil in Colorado
The inability to easily manage multiple library cards is a huge drawback. It makes the app exceedingly difficult to use for people who have more than one library membership
Good but not good enough 3/5
Only two cons: I can not see the history of the books I've read and it's not clear that way we can rate the books
Enjoying this app! 4/5
Really like using this with my local library and listening to books on tape! Easy to use!
The Best 5/5
axis360 may be better than the library, or the library on wheels! It works as promised, I can read and listen. It travels better than most people. I love it. Thank you.
Love it! 5/5
Such a great option for Audipbooks!
Great selection 4/5
By Darth Vader 1980
I like the selection on this app easy to use
Locating time of audio books 4/5
By Double A Mama
How do you see how long an audio book is? How many hours it is?
Just terrible. 1/5
Glitchy, crashes, terrible functionality. Outdated.
Fourish stars 4/5
What I love; reading books for free on my iPad.
Audio books, once I figured out you HAVE TO SAVE YOUR PLACE when you pause or it's totally gone.
Reading a series of books by a favorite author, until one of the series is not available for borrowing because Axis doesn't have it. Happened to me with Lynsay Sands in her Argeneau series and a Lara Adrian audiobook in her series. Annoying.
My two big peeves, which almost made me rate it a 3 is first, searching for books. If you don't get the name perfect, forget it. If you're looking for a book by an author sometimes not all books show up, so I go to the genre, then authors and there's no way to scroll to a certain letter of the alphabet. You have to scroll and scroll and scroll.
My second peeve is that I read on my iPad in landscape and the app is oriented to portrait and every time I go back to continue reading the book I have to push unlock and reorient the thing.
Please, Axis, read reviews and fix this stuff!
Good app 5/5
By Bob in valpo
Ok I've only used this app for a couple of books so far and it works great wish it would of had a little bit more instructions with it when I first started but I've figured it out so far. Wish it had a broader selection of books but it's working nicely.
Good app - not as good as Audible but free! 3/5
I enjoy being able to listen to library books without always having to go in and pick up/return CDs. It's definitely worth having.
Not good for the iPad Pro 1/5
This app is apparently not set up for iPad Pro. Wish it were. It would be nice to be able to have the ability to check books out through this avenue as well as the physical library. For now, I guess not!
I love this app! The library is huge, and its organization capabilities make it easy to manage and track the books I'm interested in. The interface is clean and helps make browsing for books enjoyable. There are a few bugs, such as losing your place or problems loading, but those are constantly being improved. It also has a bookmark feature that works as a backup in case the app forgets where you last were (I add a bookmark every time I close the app). Highly recommended.
So easy to use and way more books available than on Overdrive!
Looses your spot 1/5
By holdey schmolfwy
It looses your spot evreytime you shut down an auto book
Nice? No! 2/5
I got Pete the cat for my daughter and it took a corner from each page and made me read that. I'm pretty sure the only words I read were "singing his song". But I like reading myself.
For audible books it's a great app! 5/5
I only use this for listening to books. And for that purpose it performs very well.
LOVE THIS APP 5/5
Fast, saves you money, 10-20 books a month max. love it
Love Axis360 5/5
Used to love Overdrive. But the last few versions of Axis360 are so stable and user friendly, it is now my favorite
This app is horrible. I miss Overdrive that Cincinnati library uses. This app never holds your spot when it accidentally shuts down or if you get a phone call.
The search is a joke. Even if you have the EXACT title, it comes up with possibility hundreds of other "more popular books" and you can't find the one you are looking for, even if they have it!
It says you have downloaded a whole book, but then it spends minutes trying to pull up the next chapter or part... then stalls... the program will shut down, and you'll loose your place.
And most aggravating and vexing of all, even if they do have the audio book you are looking for, it is often incomplete. I'm not talking about you can't download the whole thing, I'm talking about them not having the whole of a chapter even in their system!!! And there is no way to contact them to inform them of that!! Horrible, horrible experience!!
Easy to use. I use the ebook feature and not audiobooks. So far I have had no issues!
Works great 5/5
My library uses this app for e books and it works great
Happy with it 4/5
I've never had problems with glitches or crashing but I do have issues with the audiobooks losing my place. Other than that, it's been spot on.
Axis 360 1/5
Difficult to sign in , difficult to use, very disappointed.
Missed my hold and now waiting 452 days! 1/5
I missed the notification window of a hold item becoming available by a few hours because it went to my spam folder, and I didn't notice for a few days. Defeats the whole purpose, and now I have to wait for 452 days? Not cool. This was the first time it happened to me - no idea why Axis360 suddenly started going to my spam folder. Something for a developer to look at why their emails are coming across as spam. There should really be a notification from the app itself. Also don't like that that audiobooks doesn't always save your place – super annoying to have to go back and figure out where I left off.
Good stuff 4/5
Plays all my library titles with little fuss. Sometimes drags a bit otherwise great.
Can't complain 4/5
Works well for Ebooks from my library...
I love books 4/5
The app is easy to browse and reserve but sometimes it loses my place.
Loses audio book position 2/5
By Kern dog
First I have to say I love having the ability to check out audiobooks digitally from my library and listen on my device. This app facilitates that reasonably well. The problem that I have however, is when I'm listening to an audiobook often my place will be lost between sessions. When I start the app back up to listen I expect it to pick up where I left off, but about half the time it starts playing further back in the book and I have to find a spot manually. To have a good audiobook player this is basically priority #1 in my opinion, and this app does a horrible job with it.
Nice App 4/5
Easy to use. I use it for audiobooks and there's a fairly good selection. There seems to be more ebooks than audio and would like to have more on the audio side. Selections are relatively current and you can go to a wait list when necessary. However, it does act up from time to time giving error messages and preventing use which is disruptive. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the app.
Good system 5/5
I've used this on my iPad without any problems.
Just wish there were more audiobooks at the library.
I wish this had an audio book playback speed of 1.75x. 1.5 is too slow and 2.0 is too fast. This app can be frustrating because response times are slow, slow to load, and the screens "flash" from time to time making it glitchy. I'm grateful to have it but there are a lot of improvements to be made to make it as seamless as Overdrive (also used by my library).
Unreliable hateful app 1/5
So sad my library switched to this app from overdrive. The bookmarks do not work well and the books choose to restart randomly wherever they feel like it. Spend so much time finding my place! Incredibly frustrating.
Great app! 5/5
I just got this app and it is one of the best apps on the App Store.
Great app, just wish my library had more audiobooks. It is a great way to get access to free books without even leaving the house.
Try it you'll like it! 5/5
It's an easy way to access library ebooks. The library in my town has used a couple of apps in the past to connect its patrons to this material, but this time they got it right.
