Very Good App 5/5
By The Native Titan
honestly it is great 5/5
i recommend you listen at speed 1.75, as 2 is like listening to a squirrel on meth.
LOVE this app!! What's not to love about free books on my phone at any time?
Convenience and endless options 5/5
This app has been wonderful!
Keeps getting stuck 3/5
By Git Red
I love listening to audiobooks but have experienced difficulty where the download is stuck waiting & does not download certain parts of the book no matter how many times I delete & try again & even delete the app. Nothing worse than getting into a book to hit a brick wall.
Love this App 5/5
I love that I can read books with just a touch of a button, although I'll prefer to read physical books. This is convenient.
Really enjoy this app 5/5

I really enjoy the overdrive app
Used to work. 2/5
By Yobo Yobo
Not sure why this app has stopped working. Very little support or instructions on getting a title to actually play.
Two suggestions 4/5
1. Can you put in a "skip me" button for items you have on hold, but still stay next in the que. Sometimes I have multiple books come in at once, and don't have a chance to read both before expiring. This would give the next person in line the opportunity to get the book, then allow me to read it after.
2. Can you add some sort of bookmark note for audio books. I'd like to be able to label "important info", or "left off here".
Exactly what I want! 5/5
Love having my libraries connected so I can get my books and audiobooks and have them added to my bookshelf so easily. And returns are way easier than on a Kindle!
Crashing - update - duplicate Library entries. 4/5
I have loved this app for two years. For the last few days the app keeps crashing. I have tried restarting my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app (three times), trouble shooting instructions on overdrive site - and nothing. What is really noticeable is there is no person to contact. I want to update this rating. I was able to resolve the crash issue by removing multiple libraries. However, no one assisted me with this. I still would like to know why I am asked to re-enter Library information the app is requesting. - maybe I'm missing something. This is what leads to multiple listing of the same library. I hope this helps others who may have the same issue
Not a seamless app 2/5
Very clumsy between overdrive and my library, what's on reserve, what's on my bookshelf, have to repeatedly input my library card number and passcode. These details should be worked out by now. When it works, it's great, but getting to that point is a major hassle.
I loved this app on my old android phone, but the iPhone app crashes before I can even sign in.
Best App Ever!! 5/5
I love this app. It's easy to use and so awesome to be able to get library ebooks.
Works for me 5/5
I like to set it to play for 30 minutes when I go to sleep.
Very nice 3/5
I like this app, easy to use, many books, but a lot of them are checked out. I like that you can get an audio book for free! And I know it works for my library but it doesn't work for everyone's. 🙃🙂🙃🙂
Has ever there been a less intuitive app? 1/5
First. You have to go to Amazon, so don't be far from your desktop computer. And don't think you'll figure out how to listen to audiobooks with any instructions on this app. Oh, and then you need to go to your kindle to actually download. But use this other device to return a book early. Dear god. Reading from the Dead Sea Scrolls is easier than this.
Love the app 5/5
So easy to use.
This app is wonderful it can be used any time, it takes no data so you can use it on car trips, you can use it while your cleaning or before you fall a sleep, I love this app!!!!
Love It! 5/5
Overdrive is free through my local library. I've listened to close to 300 audio books. The app is easy to use and I love it. Whenever I'm in the car I'm listening to an audio book.

Quality app 5/5
No complaints reads books fine, only thing I can really complain about is waiting for books which isn't really fixable so.
Works well 5/5
Love it! It's helping me read and listen to more books than I would have.
Excellent app and system 5/5
I can access the digital catalog of every library I belong to! This is a dream come true.
Very clean reading app. 5/5
Neat and easy to use. It also does a great job syncing between devices.
Overall great! 5/5

Certain pages are difficult to find, but works great once you get the hang of it.
Addicted to audio books 4/5
I have used this app for years. I thank my local library for offering this service. I spent some time reading through some of the other reviews and found that I am not alone in wishing for a change or two. I would like to know if I have days, hours or minutes left in which to finish listening to a book. But a more important change is to return to downloading one file at a time as was the case until the most recent updates. In the past one only had to wait a few minutes to start enjoying the book. Now, the wait is much too long, especially, if more than one book is downloaded at a time.
Not user friendly 3/5
I like that I can borrow books on my phone, but it takes me forever to figure out how to get to the book so I can read it. They need a quicker and easier way to get to your bookshelf after borrowing a book.
Love access so so many books through library 4/5
Love audio book access through library- drive a lot and feel that I am now able to use my library card well!!! Only had a little trouble with downloading mp3s but quickly figured it out!
Love it 5/5
Love this app!
Nice app 4/5
I've always had good luck with this app. Easier then physically going to library to take out a book
Works a lot better than the other library apps 4/5
Pretty quick and works pretty easily.
Love this app! 5/5
Easy to use, audiobooks are all in one place and it looks right to my library account. Must have of your a reader!
Love it, but could be improved 4/5
I really enjoy this app and I almost use it more than I use regular books because of the convenience. It isn't perfect though, as others have mentioned. Not all titles are available, or available in the format you may want. Downloading prior to a trip takes some forethought (don't save it for the night before you leave) and time. I've had the app crash a few times. All in all I really do like it and use it often.
Love audiobooks 5/5
I love listening to books to and from work. They are great for long distance driver the best, especially if your driving alone!!!
Getting Better 3/5
Process is easier now with all the updates. Still have problems when downloading files. The files begin downloading all at once and freezes my phone. I have to wait until the files fail to download before I go in and can manually download them one file at a time. A pain, but much better than before.
My favorite app! 5/5
Dishes, laundry, chauffeuring kids, I can't be without it!
With downloading 4/5
Some bugs, but overall easy to use and works well.
Great app for my iPhone 3/5
This new version is unwieldy and hard to navigate. It doesn't work well with controls on my iPhone, and I am continually having to sign back in to control the pause function. The search function should default to English. Downloading is poorly thought out. Take a clue from Audible. Also review OneClickDigital. It is much easier to use. Book series need to be organised by sequence and actually need to contain, book 1, book 2. It would also be nice if a series was purchased in the same format. Not just ebooks and some audiobooks. Honestly, I hate this version.
No longer downloads audio books 1/5
This app worked great for years, but is suddenly no longer able to download audio books.
Just rediscovered public libraries 4/5
I'm excited about this app. So far I'm happy with it. The interface is a bit clunky. For example, I wish there was a bit more connection between "bookshelf" & "loans".
But so far it's been fun downloading a couple audio books from my public library.
Great app. I use everyday, love getting library books, no problem in getting or returning. Slight amendment. Last upgrade there are books I can borrow but the system crashes when I check out. Also why only five books on hold. If I go into the library I can put more on waiting list?
Confused by all the good reviews 1/5
This app doesn't sync your overdrive account across other devices. That seems like a massive oversight and ruins the whole point of having an app in my opinion. I either need to exclusively use the app or exclusively use the website? C'mon it's 2017.
Deleting this and just using the mobile website which actually isn't bad.
Great app, no bugs 5/5
By Always cooking
I o to use this app on occasion but I've been happy with how it works. There have never been any problems and I love how it connects with my library for seamless transitions!
Love it 4/5
I love it, but just don't understand why they can't have more than one person checking out a book at a time. I mean, it's not like they will run out of copies! It's all on your phone! So, I just wish that multiple people could have the book at a time.
Never downloads 2/5
I have borrowed books but can never get the books to download. I have made sure I have had WiFi and have tried at different places.
Amazing love this app
Easy to get books, navigation can be tedious 4/5
Seattle Public library has revamped their system and it is a breeze! King County is still on the old system and it navigation can be a little tedious.
One issue 4/5
Loans vs Bookshelf is confusing. Having to find Loans to download audiobooks I've borrowed is confusing. Otherwise a great app.
