Do not get 1/5
Worst app ever
Loved this ap until the recent lousy update. Now it crashes constantly. Extremely dissapointed.
Liked it better before current version 4/5
Slower. Generally, current version's navigation is cumbersome to me. But I'm still glad to have it!

So easy to use and convenient! This app is a God-sent for me and my elementary aged kids. No more fines!

Easy to use and works well with the library website.
Incredible, money saver 5/5

Now I can afford to listen to audiobooks. Love this app.
Poor app 2/5
By Berkeley peep
Doesn't work with kindle app anymore! No easy support available for help!
Great app! 5/5
Even with the latest update, this app is still confusing to use and navigate. Just checked out two different books and both books had chapters that were chopped off. You could tell the author kept speaking on the audiobooks, but they were cut off midsentence. I don't know if this is a F problem or library problem, but this app does not make that easy to determine
Best audio book app! 5/5
I love this app!
Great App 5/5
This is app is a great source of books and it's all free if you have a library card!!!
Good App 5/5
By not loading
I love to use the library, great to have this ability in an app. And this app used to loose your place, but no more. It remembers where you left off! Thank you for the fix developers. Interface is still a glorified web browser but that's ok while everything is free. Overall a great and heavily used app for me.
Love having a library app! 4/5
By Sharon Peru
It's so fortune for us to have an app where we can read an ebook, listen to an audiobook and watch videos.
I would, though, recommend "loans" be put to the side main menu
Great resource 5/5
I find myself using Overdrive all the time with both ebooks and audiobooks. Ebooks on my iPad and audiobooks on iPhone. Lots of good recent titles, especially mysteries. Wish the search function was a bit more robust. I've also had instances where the filter criteria gets cleared out and I have to reset it. Not sure if it's a bug or works as designed. Not a showstopper, just annoying.
Great, functional app 5/5
Great App 5/5
Fixed previous issues with not picking up playback where last left off.
Most used app! 5/5
Downloaded this app after a friend recommended it. I have an hour drive to work and an hour drive back home. I use this app almost every day to listen to audiobooks. My long drive is no longer boring. I would give it more stars if I could!

This app saves many a trip to the library & offers ebooks in several vehicles
Love this app! Perfect for the avid reader and commuter. 5/5
STILL crashing 1/5
By Molly Chiccino
I love overdrive but I haven't been able to use it. As soon as I try to open it, it forces close. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still it crashes. Please fix this, I miss overdrive! Even after the last 3 updates, I still can't keep it open!!
Mark on OverDrive 5/5
A special thanks to the developers for continuing to improve accessibility for the visually impaired via VoiceOver, Apple’s software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision.

This app is great but , I wish when u look up words that it would keep it highlighted , so when u return to the page u don't have to look for the word, other than that it's a good ap, thank you and take care
Poorly laid out 2/5
The organization of this app is not well thought out. Overly complicated in some areas like subjects but then not enough information with in a subject to find what you want. The books I want are rarely available, with 9 people wait before me. Sad.
Good product 5/5
By Unknown 70
I love that you don't have to go to the bookstore to buy them they're free and you also don't have to go to the library to go check the books out you just do it on your phone!😁
Love this app!!! 5/5
I've been so busy using it that I forgot to review it!! It has allowed me (a kinda slow reader) to "read" a lot about WWII , and some crime novels in between!! I haven't had any problems this year with losing my place but I used to, so I bookmark when I finish for the day, then exit out of it...& always check the App Store for any updates.
I love the 'back up 15 seconds' feature....because sometimes when having my lunch or late afternoon knitting, I miss an important detail like where the battle occurred or where they found the murder weapon!!
I have been able to learn a lot of history & still get lots of scarves knitted!! :)
And, thanks to San Francisco Library & my local one, I haven't paid for a single book in 3 years!!! 😎
I do LOVE this app. Would have been 5 ⭐️ but since update I'm not able to listen to my books through app. Hopefully this is remedied quickly! Gives me perfect opportunity to add ebooks & audiobooks without having to go to the library. I use the app for listening to my books also. 🤓📚
Love the free audio books 4/5
Super convenient as easy to use for the most part. A little confusing when adding a book to the app.
Easy to use 5/5
I use this app to listen audiobooks all the time. It works seamlessly with public library systems.
Awesome App 5/5
I am no longer subject to library hours and no late fees because books return automatically when due! A world of books is a few taps away!

Love this app! 5/5
By Increíble y fácil de usar
I use this app to listen to audiobooks from the library and its awesome.
Easy to use for a first timer 5/5
I haven't read a lot of e-books, so I was apprehensive about this app. I'm really happy with all of the access I now have two library books, and I love how easy it was to figure out how to use OverDrive.
Good app 5/5
I suppose i could make some suggestions for improvement but overall its a great app for checking out audio books from your local library. I cant fold laundry or do the dishes without listening to an audio book and this app makes it quick & easy.
Awesome app 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I get my library books and I can listen to the audiobooks in my car and it's a great timesaver and I just love it
Plz remember card info between upgrades 🙏 1/5
Why does they keep removing the stored library card info?!! I save it at each upgrade and they remove it every time. Guys plz user NSUserDefaults to store the card info, its a pain to look for my library card & re-enter all the info.
Will give the rest of the stars back once this issue is resolved.
By mojo potatoes
Really like the reboot of the app. It works so much better and the layout is much cleaner. Bravo!
Used to be better 2/5
It's really annoying with the new update that I have to keep on reentering my password. For some reason it's even forgotten my library card number now so I need to go find that again. The app used to save both which would make logging in much easier. This isn't a banking app. Why do I have to renter login info so frequently?
Luv this App 4/5
I download audio books for work, gym or when I'm cleaning my house. Sometimes music can get repetitive. It gets my mind off the task at hand and makes it easier to get things done! My only problem is that sometimes the search feature isn't easy to use.
Really great way to read when you drive all day. 5/5
Current update is not smooth 2/5
Perhaps this is the wrong time to rate this app. They just did a major overhaul which has been a frustrating pain in the neck. Ask me again in a month!
Love it 5/5
My favorite app ever
Great app! 4/5
Great app for audiobooks!
Newest version gave me app opening lockout 1/5
Just downloaded this app yesterday for a book I really wanted to read from my local library. All was good until I received a notification that an update was available in the App Store. I downloaded same as any other app and now the app won't even open up! Now what?
Has potential, needs work 2/5
Update: With each version the app gets worse. The is no logical reason it is incapable of retaining sign in information and requires the user to keep reentering library card info. 3 times in under 10 minutes is excessive. If you're browsing, be very certain before selecting an item to view because you will be likely be returned to the home screen to start over after. It's dysfunctional and frustrating to an overwhelming extent.
Why do I keep having to sign in? Why can't the app remember my info? Search is horrible, and adding a borrowed book to the kindle app is awkward and unintuitive. Many of the "features" seem to be overly complicated. I've considered sharing this with my mom, but she would never be able to get it to work properly and it would just lead to confusion and frustration.
December 2016 update 2/5
This app was reliable and easy to use prior to this update. I use it on a iPhone SE, an early iPod touch and a KindleFire. On each device the Search function is very difficult to use because it doesn't utilize selected words, only letters typed in. Also, when one search is complete, all input cleared and a new search entered it may return to previous search, with no means to effectively do another. The search function is essential to the use of this app. It's a significant problem.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled app, it remains problematic.
Also, download of borrowed material is much slower and requires turning off sleep setting or 'babysitting' the device during the download.
I like the categories of books it offers to view. As far as I can tell that's the only thing this update has improved.
I hope they get the search function worked out soon.
Review-my first! 4/5
The latest revision was a little confusing! I finally figured out what I needed it to do. The book on my phone is fine! The other thing I would like to see is a small clock at the top of the screen, like most apps have! Thx
A great app! 5/5
Easy to use, this app has changed my library habits forever. Instead of going to the library, I access audio books online and enjoy listening to them.
Love Overdrive 5/5
I've used Overdrive for many years to download audiobooks from my library and the app works fantastic. The improvements made over the last few years make the app easy for daily use.
