Must have 5/5
By Help! I'm addicted!
I have been on an audiobook kick, and thanks to this app I can listen for free!!!! Thank you over drive, I've been telling people about this app.
Best App Ever! 5/5
By Georgetown FNP
Absolutely amazing app!
Try it - You will agree!
Basically Unusable 1/5
I've been using this app across my Android devices without an issue. On iOS (both iPod Touch and iPhone SE) the app takes me to the sign in where I load up the details and then it crashes like a car being subjected to tests of the air bags. I never get in and I can't use it at all. Call me when it works.
Changed mah lifeeeee 5/5
Thank u based god
This is a great app. The Search criteria work easily; Holds are simple and flow directly to my Bookshelf with notification. I have only utilized borrowing audiobooks, since that functionality is the best fit for me...and I am hooked on how easy and accessible this app makes these stories! Thank you Over Drive!
Use this app daily 5/5
I have an audiobook checked out from library almost constantly. Not only do I listen to them with this app, but I also manage hold and loans. Love it!
I'm a believer! 4/5
Best app I've seen for audiobooks, I've told anyone that will listen!
Almost best in show 4/5
Very convenient and easy to use. There is one improvement I'd like to chime in with other's reviews:
** please download audio books in chronological order so we could start listening right away while the rest is downloading
* allow us to book mark highlighted phrases instead of just book marking the page. If copying is permitted that would be so great too
Easy to use! 5/5
This app is very user friendly & its way easier than going to the library. Plus you can recommend books that aren't in the collection. Definitely a must for those who love to read!
Annoying to use 2/5
This app won't let you see percentage of your progress. Am I 50% done or 90%? No way to tell. You can see which chapter you're on but not all chapters are the same length. It is functional, does what it should do with no bells or whistles. I wish I could use another app with my library books.
Crashing on open 2/5
By Rachel D.
I love this app, and I used it frequently on my old phone (LG G4) but it's crashing when I try to sign in on this phone.
App doesn't download 1/5
I was all signed in and borrowed books from my library then clicked download. They will not download. I have followed the support instructions and even deleted the app and started over. The titles still will not download and doesn't even give me an error number or code, just error.
Love this app! 4/5
New Update is good with one major exception 4/5
New Update is very good with one major exception. After you place a book onto the wishlist the number of people waiting for that title is no longer visible. In the previous version of the app you could easily see how many people were waiting for a particular title. With the update the reader has to open each book saved to the wish list in order to determine the wait time. When deciding which book from the wish list to place on hold being able to easily see how many people are waiting for a particular title is very important. A reader may want to place a book on hold with a shorter wait time so it takes less time to receive the book. Please add the wait information back onto wishlist items.
Love this app!!!
First track should download first 3/5
This latest version downloads all the tracks of an audiobook at once and it takes a long time. It should automatically download the first track first, and then begin downloading the rest, that way you can begin listening to a book right away.
Love this 5/5
I have a long commute. Listening to books is my new favorite pass time.
Life changing 5/5
Not meaning to be dramatic and all, but this app/website has truly changed my life! Love being able to check out books and read then whenever I want and wherever I am. Perfect!!
Minimalism, please 1/5
By Rafael Testai
Have you heard of minimalism? You have feature overload which resulted in me not utilizing your app. Make it easy. Go back to the drawing board, hire a designer.
great app 5/5
Overdrive has so many great features. i use it all the time.
Love This App 5/5
I have been very pleased with this app. I've never had any problems with it and the downloads are easy once I figured out and remembered how to download the books, but other than that, I've been pleased with the app. I used to subscribe to Audible, but once I found I could get the same books in Overdrive, I discounted my subscription with Audible. Even when I've had to wait for a book to come off hold, the moment it's available I receive an email and can immediately download it. It's also very easy to renew a book if I haven't finished listening to it. I won't go back to paying for audio books again.
Love this app!! 5/5
Best app on my phone! 5/5
It's nice to carry a whole library in my pocket. Ebooks, audiobooks, and video. What's not to love?
Love it 5/5
By Nawei Marenner
I love borrowing books on overdrive- it's so easy.
By Ricola lemon
OverDrive is a amazing app! You can get literally like any book on it or if you don't want to read then you can get a audio book and it reads to you!!
Overall I haven't had problems with this app. I use it all the time! I've had to delete the app twice because it would not let me download books. That's twice in two years, not bad. Overall it's a wonderful app.
Nothing is intuitive 1/5
Not a fan
Great app! 5/5
By Mink tanker
It's a great book app that seems to be used by nearly all libraries, nothing else to say really.
Awesome app 4/5
I enjoy this app so much I have recommended it to a few friends.
Great Reading App 5/5
I mostly use this to download eBooks from the library and have been very pleased with it. The few audiobooks I've downloaded have worked well, although it does take some time to download. I love that I have access to library books while I'm traveling.
Summer reading savior! 5/5
Many kids can't get to libraries over the summer, but just as many have access to devices that feature Overdrive. With one library card, kids can have trading material all summer long!
Support your local library so they can support Overdrive!
Great app 1/5
By Jar m
Don't download update! It's a mess. Takes your aiarage, leaves the books on, you can't delete them but can't access them. Incredibly frustrating.
Ummmm ok 3/5
Takes forever to download, not a lot of urban books. What's there are good!
I love this !!!!!!! 5/5
I've listened to so many books I'm extremely happy with this app. Thank you sooooooo much. My world is a better place now 🙂
Hate revised app 1/5
Overdrive used to work well, but now it is much too complicated
Great read 5/5
I listen to audiobooks when I travel. This app works with my public library and saves me a lot of green over audible.
Easy to use 5/5
This app is easy to use and allows me to keep on reading or listening to books in my spare time.
Makes my day! 4/5
Overdrive keeps me sane by allowing me access to an ever changing supply of library audio books. I wish that in addition to the number of days remaining in the check out that they would list total hours of the title and due date and time.
Love it! 5/5
Use it as often as I see a good book on it. I haven't experienced any problems with this. love that you can save digital libraries to browse around and borrow from. A must-get if you are a digital reader.
Awesome resource 4/5
By Flower tic
This is a great alternative for people who like to read, but stay very busy. I listen to books as I travel to and from work or throughout the day.
Easy to use. 5/5
Easy to barrow items and seamless to return items…
Good App...But... 5/5
This is an amazing app no lying about that. But..
There's 1 flaw
When I want to put something on hold,I have to like put in the day,month,and year
The year part...only goes up to 2012...
I don't know if anyone else is getting this problem...but I am
Love the app 5/5
Listen to audios on my way to and from work. Help kill an hour coming and going.
By Carolina Meerkat
Love this app for audiobooks! A little confusing at first, but now i am a huge fan.
Before you update be sure to copy your history first! 3/5
By Grandma Lefty
I usually don't have too many problems with the app. But I'm not happy with this update. My history is gone and there is no longer a volume control on the screen. I'm sorry I updated!
Gets me through my workday 5/5
By Pierre croons
Love it! I don't have time to read, so this is amazing.
I don't know why anyone would not have this app 5/5
I've read and listen to thousands of books without having to go to the library. There is such an abundance of knowledge available to us, that is now incredibly convenient to access. While I'm cleaning, exercising or driving, I'm becoming more informed and/or being entertained. Thank you to all the authors and technologically brilliant minds that made this possible!
I love this app and I use it every day!!!!!!
Has an important job and does it well 5/5
Hundreds of millions of people love books and are smart enough to realize with a library card overdrive, they can hook themselves up with ebooks and audiobooks galore. Does well loading and playing the audiobooks. I load up on trips. You can load the ePub version of a book right in the app or send it to your Kindle app.
