OverDrive – Library eBooks and Audiobooks app reviews

  • Passwords Lost AGAIN!!!!! 1/5

    By Borregoman
    Why must my passwords be erased EVERY TIME you do an upgrade???? Other app developers seem to grasp the concept, why can't you?
  • Not working 1/5

    By audiolistnr
    I can not listen to my current audiobook. There is no "listen" button to click on and it will not download either. Thanks for nothing.
  • I Love This App! 4/5

    By A Serial Reader
    I love the convenience of this app! I can read whenever I want, and even if I forget to return my selections, or I get too busy to return them, they are returned for me. What a GREAT tool. I also love the audible selections, in the event my selections happen to be unavailable in Ebook form! I highly recommend this app for all people who are too bust; unable to go out to libraries, or just want a convenient way to enjoy reading their favorite books!
  • Kidding? 1/5

    By xyzxyzlllllllllllllll
    One of the most difficult and frustrating apps I've ever had the displeasure to be forced to use...forced because this is what the libraries have chosen to burden us with. Interface is awful. Whatever you want to do they put a roadblock in your way and make it near impossible to figure out what they could possibly be thinking. I hate this app....
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Boastick
    Up until today I loved Overdrive. Today when I logged into n I could no longer access the e-books or audiobooks from the app! There was no email, or any information given n how to use the revised app, and even the help section was not updated! I am very FRUSTRATED!
  • Love this app 5/5

    By Wildling9
    I've been using versions of this app for years. I love having the ability to read or listen to all of my favorite titles.
  • Very good 5/5

    By xyghx
    I love this app
  • I recommend this app all the time 5/5

    By Gaylie Rae
    I recommend this app to friends all the time. This app is phenomenal for listening to audiobooks.
  • Overdrive 1/5

    By Sonogramma
    This is a terribly confusing app. Do not recommend at all.
  • I love this app! 5/5

    By Zomimom
    I use it daily and haven't had any issues with it. Makes my ride to work so enjoyable!
  • Awesome App 5/5

    By wmeilge
    This is an incredible app. It is easy to use and fast. I listen to audio books that I check out from our local library. I can find the book I want, check it out and be listening in just a few minutes.
  • Convenient way to read 5/5

    By tiger8515
    OverDrive gives me the means to read books without going to the library. Can mes in very handy since I'm home bound
  • It's good for what it does 4/5

    By Dchanel
    This is a good product. Often have to enter id when I have already saved it. Wish it were away to easily make book recommendations
  • Overdrive 5/5

    By J Gala
    Love to read
  • Amazing! 5/5

    By kaleamy
    This is my favorite way to listen to books while I work. As a student who works full-time, it's hard to find time to sit down and read a good book. With Overdrive, I can download several books within minutes and listen to them as I go about my day or on my drive to/from work. It's awesome!
  • Love listening to audio books from my Library! 5/5

    By tiredofchoosing
    It took me a while to actually get everything working right. Once on phone, it's fantastic. I always bookmark when I stop listening, as it doesn't always save your place. It is so fabulous to be able to walk, grocery shop, knit & listen! This has opened the the world of audio for me, enabled reading when I usually can't, given me wonderful reading experiences (accents, singing), and is an ongoing delight. Thank you.
  • Fantastic app 4/5

    By MMGKE
    I love that I can check out books without going to the library and listen on my phone instead of a CD that may or may not play due to scratches. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there isn't a huge selection of books like one would get if actually going to the library.
  • Adequate 3/5

    By ilovemyvideoipod
    I find it clunky and hard to search. I would like to easily just look for audiobooks. I find the publishing groupings for searching not good for me. What is actually in my library is especially obscure to find.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By GunnandDad
    Never ending supply of great books to read.
  • Disappointing 1/5

    By Hate it!!! >:(
    I downloaded this app hoping to be able to check out ebooks from my local library. The app will neighter play audiobooks nor display ebook I was on the waiting list on 2 books for weeks only to not be able to read or hear them once I was able to check them out.
  • Love 5/5

    By jazz-0
    Convenient way to listen to all that my library has to offer. Love that you can download the books to listen in the app even when you have no cell reception. No crashing. No issues with the audio. 5 stars!
  • Audiobooks 5/5

    By AKTapp
    I am slightly obsessed with this app. I mainly use it for audiobooks and listen to it while I drive, and clean the house, and make dinner, and any other time I can get away with listening to books. I highly recommend it.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Just some dude5
    I love the audiobook feature
  • Improved! 5/5

    By Crazy daisy I love u
    I was previously at a one with this app as I was frustrated I couldn't get past the sign in page (I had to go under the age 13 option to use the app). But since that has been fixed the app works great! It is so nice to have my whole library at the touch of my fingers. I wish there was more of a selection but I understand that isn't always possible. I wish that overdrive itself could have its own virtual library with a large selection.
  • Brings your local library to you 5/5

    By Nancy0627
    Great app
  • On the verge of excellent 4/5

    By bradbelote
    Used OD for a while. Incredible service. The app still needs work. Needs to remember me at the app and library level for longer periods of time. Overdrive interface can be slow to load. Been using for years. Still won't remember my credentials from session to session.
  • Audio readers rejoice! 5/5

    By Ariadnni
    Easy way to download audio books directly to your phone. All you need is a valid library card. Lets you place holds on future books and even make recommendations to your library about which titles to pick up.
  • Overview and never be overdue! 5/5

    By N4BSA
    Excellent app! I love the current titles and authors available! I am forgetful and always late returning my books! No more! It is excellent. The only drawback is that if you look up a title, it suggests it before you are done typing... but then it tells you it is not available. So I guess more books added to the options would be great.
  • OK - needs many more options 2/5

    By cataray
    This app is good for reading, but for managing your books it is sad. Ideally, one should be able to sort books on many more options than title, recent, or expiration. For example, sorting by Author (last name please) and publication date would be great. I get a monthly subscription of 8 plus titles and thus I have hundreds of books. I'd love to be able to sort by publication date and author to find what I'm looking for. Plus, I'd love to be able to create categories or folders into which I could class books, again to make them more findable. A status option would be great, one you can set or unset, like read or not read or even unfinished. Using status one could "hide" books once read, but go find them if one wanted to read them again. I don't want to delete them and have to redownload them later should I want to read a second time. Plus, I just got an updated app that is even less helpful than prior version. Now, it doesn't even remember the book I am currently reading.
  • In love 5/5

    By Lacy875
    This is the best app I have. I drive about 1.5 hours a day. I am able to check out a digital audio book from my local city library and listen to it through the Overdrive app. All that time isn't lost on the drive.
  • Overdrive 5/5

    By Kicker 1000
    Amazing app!!!!! Try it!🤣😜😆
  • Best development in libraries 4/5

    By Drlelou
    I love the ability to read books from the library digitally without stressing about returning on time. The process is easy. The books are usually available in multiple formats (including audio). I use it with my iPad and iPhone switching between the two with ease, as it syncs my place in the book. Load time for some books lags for the iPhone and iPad compared to the kindle I tried originally.
  • This is the worse yeti 1/5

    By Mama 6 bear 12
    Have had many problems with latest update. Now it says it's there but you can't see it. Please fix it fast. Thank you.
  • Messes up with Headphones 5/5

    By Neontayto
    I love this app! I've been using it for s couple years. It's convenient and I love that it connects to my library. However every time I pause it through my headphones, even as little as 5 seconds later, when I try to hit play through the headphones it doesn't work. REALLY annoying. This only started happening after the previous update.
  • ❤️ it 5/5

    By LovingLush
    Allows me to sync up with my public library system and borrow/ download/ listen to books I've never had a problem.
  • Sanity! 5/5

    By Momg8r
    My commute would be torture without the Overdrive app!! I did like the previous search method better than the current one, but it only takes a few more seconds to select and search than before. Those who have a barrier search field may prefer this new version but I like to "browse".
  • Easy to use once you're past the initial confusion 3/5

    By Kresley Cole
    Once you have a book, this app is wonderful. I mainly use it for audiobooks (personal preference). You can speed or slow down an audiobook narration which is its shining feature that 3M does not provide. You can now renew books which is WONDERFUL if you read/listen to books over longer periods of time. I must say, Overdrive had come a long way. That being said, some of its repetitive steps are cumbersome and confusing. Thankfully, my local librarians were very helpful and gave me excellent guidance.
  • Love to get library books on my kindle 4/5

    By Rxr3rd
    Great app. Use it constantly. Easier than carrying books around and I don't have to buy a book I am only going to read once
  • Enriching 5/5

    By Arrgh sharks
    Wonderful
  • Horrible 5/5

    By roberttxjr
    Why couldn't you leave well enough alone. The app was working fine but your upgrade has totally screwed it up. Why try to fix something that wasn't broken?
  • Overall, great. A little glitchy at times. 4/5

    By Cmb4183
    Sometimes doesn't download well.
  • Great free audio books 5/5

    By Fat Matt Does That
    I love audible, but this allows me to check out free audiobooks for 2 weeks. Downside is you don't own the book & sometimes title isn't available... it's free so I deal with it. If I really want a book that's not available here then I get it on audible.
  • Great Books with great functionality 5/5

    By Cdujgfghb
    The application works great. Bugs and stability issues are addressed quickly.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Pritesh Desai
    I've been using this app for over a month and I love it. I like the audio book features of this app. If you use Goodreads to keep track of books, there's a cool extension for Chrome which lets you borrow books from your 'want to read' shelf on Goodreads via Overdrive. It only works from the desktop version of Chrome.
  • Barney 5/5

    By Asa757
    One of my most used apps.
  • Use it constantly! 5/5

    By MusicalKellyJ
    Fantastic app - use daily to listen to audio books on my commute. So handy to be able to load multiple libraries into the app.
  • Love Love Love 5/5

    By Lloydsmom
    This is a fantastic app. It's just nearly a gift to any audio lover.
  • Can be better 3/5

    By Feeyohnah
    I loved having access to so many libraries and different digital books. I use it most frequently in the car when I'm driving my kids around so they can listen to some audio books. But currently there isn't a function to line up the playlist, which I assume shouldn't be difficult to add. It'd be awesome if I can add several audio books to my playlist so I can prepare for a longer road trip.
  • Love it 5/5

    By it is me, Scott
    Works perfectly every time I use it. Interface is intuitive and responsive. Well done!
  • Overdrive 4/5

    By Pandy Dog Lover
    I love that overdrive makes ereading easy though overdrive does still have a few bugs to work out.
