  • Great app. 5/5

    By RayRay4207
    Easy to use all you need is a library card. Movies TV and books at you finger tips and you can even download to your device to watch when you don't have wifi signal.
  • Love this app 5/5

    This is by far and away the best library app I've used--much better than Overdrive! I primarily use it for audio books and graphic novel ebooks, since I'm not a huge fan of regular ebooks. Downloading books is a breeze--just press download, and the book is there within about 10 seconds. Overdrive takes 10 minutes to download an audio book for me! What I love most about hoopla is how everything they have in their catalog is available all the time. No waiting in lines, which is so silly anyways for digital files. If they have it, so can you. And it doesn't matter what library you access it through--the collection is the same. Compare to overdrive where the collection varies from library to library and you have to wait in line for ebooks the same as you do for a physical copy. I've seen some people complain about lending limits, and that's fair, but that's also your library's doing, not the app. I'm a patron of more than one library, and one of them allows me to check out 20 items/month from hoopla and the other only 10. So if you think your lending limit is too low, tell your librarian! Maybe your library will increase it if they know there's higher demand. I also want to mention how happy I am with the number of comics available. It really feeds my addiction! Lots of classic trades and also tons of more recent releases--you can get the first three volumes of lots of N52 series, which is great if you don't want to track them down or pay for them. The only criticism I have is that audio books can go a little on the fritz if you have a bad connection. If I pause a book while going through the tunnel on BART, for instance, I won't be able to play it again until we're out of the tunnel. But I feel that's pretty reasonable. Also, it will start your audio book over from the beginning if you're not careful. When you hit resume, give it a few seconds. If you hit the play button afterwards, it'll go back to the beginning. Not fun! Overall, this is my go-to resource for audio books. Highly recommend!
  • Peachy w/ bits of pit 4/5

    By Roscoewavo
    A great resource of good movies and free. But since I downloaded the app I've had problems where running a movie on an iPad was problematic because of low volume. I wrote to Hoopla about it but I guess it wasn't important enough for them to attempt to fix. Another problem is closed caption. Today on a movie I was watching the captions were so far ahead of the actual dialogue that if I tried to synchronize them in my mind- well I turned it off.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Leefrd
    Love the App.
  • Free service 3/5

    By Mndylbrck
    It's nice that's it's free. However, 99% of the movies are really terrible. Six movies a month is probably about right, because only six of the movies are worth watching.
  • Better than audible and free! 5/5

    By Goodlife78
    Great selection, perfect quality, ease of access.
  • Pretty good 4/5

    By TezzysRevenge
    I like the app a lot! I haven't had any issues with it at all. The only criticism I guess I could give it is broaden the book selections further. I have found that some books that are supposed to be written for commentary series are missing. For instance, the Jiddu Krishnamurti commentary is missing book #2, but #1 and #3 are available.
  • Hooray For HOOPLA!!! 5/5

    By LgMarge123
    Truly a great and often used app. All you need is a library card. I usually listen to audiobooks in my car, before bed, or while doing things the house. I watch movies on Hoopla too. They have a wonderfully large and varied variety of ebooks, audiobooks, music and movies to choose from. Comic books too!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Riskywaffle
    Pretty easy to use lots of titles
  • Still needs work 3/5

    By PaloAltoGreg
    The basics of the app are great, but it still doesn't play well with iOS 10. It won't often restart when you are listening to headphones. You have to re-launch the app. It causes weird instabilities in the iPhone. I don't know what the problem is but I hope they can update the software, because the use case is spectacular.
  • Kind Of Sort of like/hate this app 3/5

    By Celctr1
    I was super excited to get this app when my local library didn't have the book I wanted to read. With that being said...the book didn't download properly and I had to delete it, there goes one book check out. I then downloaded again and it still didn't work, 3rd times the charm? NOPE! I ended up grabbing a few more but sadly didn't get to one before it was automatically returned! This makes me so upset as I can usually read 12-15 books in one month but can only check out 10? Nice concept just wish the books didn't get returned so fast and wish I could check out more books and movies.
  • Wow! 4/5

    By spudleyl
    So many more Ebooks than library. Current books as well as older books. Needs to be fixed where it moves from chapter to chapter better. Hangs up sometimes. Then it's 5 stars. Better than Overdrive.
  • Absolutely awesome! 5/5

    By BMW 335i
    Absolutely awesome!
  • Great! 5/5

    By Acozza
    Great app. Good with multiple devices on the same account, and the search filter makes finding titles easy.
  • Great 5/5

    By B3astie!
    Love it for classic graphic novels
  • Returns movies before I have watched it 2/5

    By A Name that is named name
    I love reg concept of this mobile library of entertainment. For the second time in two months of membership, the movies I ordered are now listed as recently returned. I can't view them, and have to wait a month to reorder them. (help!)
  • Music, movies, and more oh my! 5/5

    By Chubbyfit
    Good music and movies
  • Getting Better… 3/5

    By headbirths
    Why are there German audio books flooding the Music section? Would be nice to have a reading queue, to kind of line up some books I would like to read next. Needs Music samples and previews before downloading. The content is heavily Christian slanted and Canadian?
  • Great for audiobooks 4/5

    By StefFBS
    Great app! Love using this for audiobooks. Did wish that it would load faster sometimes.
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By scubadreamer
    I am watching movies and it works really well on my iPhone 6s. I just wish it worked on my iMac pro.
  • Love it 5/5

    By R G Q
    Love it! I use hoopla every single day. Not sure how I ever lived without it.
  • Great concept; needs work 3/5

    By MsRev74
    The books I've borrowed on Hoopla have been great but I find the app difficult to use. There appears to be no central "card catalog" that can be reviewed. When I enter a title or author the options offered are limited & I rarely find them of interest.
  • Brilliant concept, halfway executed 3/5

    By Kohl Gill
    As other reviewers have noted, this app constantly breaks audio playback when the iPhone is locked. The user is then required to force quit Hoopla and relaunch in order to continue playback. The Support pages are no help.
  • Love this! 5/5

    By Lori in San Francisco
    What a great thing!!! Free books, books on tape, and music. Easy to use, great search function and intuitive.
  • Hell of a find!!! 5/5

    By Ash*hole
    What a gem of an app to find and to be able to use through my local library!
  • Best way to read graphic novels! 5/5

    By J from STL
    I love that I'm given access to this with my library card. Reading graphic novels, typically so expensive, is a cinch.
  • All libraries should have something like this 5/5

    By Lane19d

  • Great App 5/5

    By J3615
    I love my hoopla app! It is very convenient and allows me to listen to audio books while driving or cleaning, which makes entertainment and "reading" so easy! Thank you Hillsborough County libraries!
  • Eh 2/5

    By JonP#762
    I want to love this app because it is so great in theory, however it is filled with bugs, crashes constantly or when not crashing just never saves anything. Drives me crazy. {{sigh}}

  • Such a great resource! 4/5

    By Eata mama
    How amazing is it to be able to play library audiobooks from my phone, while I commute? I only wish the app would support multiple library cards, like my kids' cards, or the library cards that I have also from other cities.
  • Great! Super app 5/5

    By The 5-star ratings are FAKE!
    Use it every day.
  • The tease 1/5

    By fbhidy
    Lots of titles to look at that I can't borrow because my library system doesn't subscribe to that particular title? So the hundreds of titles you show me may or may not be available, I won't know until I click borrow and I'm only then told sorry no book for you! Must have a filter for titles available through your library system. I won't use the app again until it's added. Very frustrating service.
  • Great app 5/5

    I absolutely enjoy Hoopla. It is a lot less clunky than Overdrive and I am also able to download and listen to music as well. All free with my library card.
