Libby, by OverDrive app reviews

  • Libby is awesome! 5/5

    By NYR🏒
    I discovered Libby through my overdrive reader. I love it. It’s easy to navigate and returns are easy. Placing books on hold is simple. You can adjust the size of the text, color of the page, and use place holder bookmarks. Libby is streamlined and clean. There’s no clutter. You have a bookshelf where your books are. You can get ebooks and audio books and place them on hold. It’s really a great app and you can sync to other devices. Awesome!
  • Super cool app for library users 5/5

    By Srichaitu
    Sleek and cool app with intuitive design and very user friendly.
  • Great app!!!! 5/5

    By Tap Tate
    I love to read. This is like having the library in your home. Pick a book or books and read what you want and when you want. Or choose an audio book and listen while you do other things. Sometimes you have to wait for a book to become available, just like the library, but this app is so awesome!! Love it!! Thanks!
  • Libby by Overdrive 4/5

    By D. Hill
    Libby by Overdrive is a well designed library application that does two things extremely well. It allows users to quickly search for their nearby library and it allows you to easily navigate your selected library’s inventory by borrowing a title, tagging it or placing it on hold. The app also allows users to read titles either from the included e-reader or by the Amazon Kindle application in case you prefer that. This app is a huge improvement from the previous Overdrive application in terms of design and functionality. Well worth a download for those who are regular patrons of their preferred library.
  • I Love my Libby bookshelf 5/5

    By Soonersusiela
    What a wonderful way to explore new books, or even old books that are just good friends. I can always find a hidden jewel just right for my mood. And discovering something new is like finding a gift that got missed at your birthday. If Libby was as friendly as our librarian, well, that would be the ultimate. But she is quite efficient even though I have never met her in person! Thanks DeSoto Parish library!
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Emily1982/2013
    Libby make it so easy to check out books from my public library. I am hooked! Only been using a few months but will definitely be a long time user. Thanks Libby!
  • Fantastic 5/5

    By Emma18
    This app is perfect. Super user-friendly and works great. I listen to books through the app and send the e-books I check out to my Kindle. I tell everyone who reads to download this app it’s a must-have!
  • Libby 5/5

    By Bigsal16
    The best thing since sliced bread! This app is the ultimate service to any reader.
  • AWESOME 5/5

    It is awesome you can find your favorite book’s. it is easier then cloudLibrary. it is better then cloudLibrary. it is nicer then cloudLibrary. it is a very good app. I can get my favorite book’s and so can get Libby
  • Good effort, needs work 1/5

    By phyzal
    New update ruined the menu. It’s so annoying and confusing to move around in the menu. App doesn’t agree with on which books I have checked out so I’m forced to use overdrive app. Playback always errors out if no data connection is available. Makes it pretty difficult to start the book before driving out of an underground parking garage.
  • Great 5/5

    By Benmattson
    I love this app. It's well designed, easy to use, and generally well thought out and reliable. Besides, who can say no to free audiobooks! No more overpriced audible with this app.
  • All around excellent app 5/5

    By AStoneRose
    Delightful and so easy to use. Very intuitive. Thanks for your hard work Libby Team. Y’all did a great job. I recommend this app to just about everyone I meet.
  • Libby Rocks! 5/5

    By SilChk
    I LOVE this app. I am an OTR truck driver team with my husband. We run 4000 miles+ per week, and I listen to a lot of audiobooks. It was costing me a fortune to buy them in stores, so I was so excited to give Libby a try. All of my favorite authors are here and all for free! App is extremely easy to use, and wait times (if any) are short.
  • LOVE!! 5/5

    By Kimijtoo
    This is by far my most favorite app. I was able to apply and get a library card instantly. And now I have so many books I can listen to or read without having to leave the house. I’ve got new books on hold and more books waiting for me. This is such a gift!! Thank you!!!
  • Great app! 4/5

    By AnimeSakura
    Wish I could read all my ebooks on this app.
  • Love it but... 3/5

    By Lanerf
    I love this app, but have an issue. It is pretty much my issue but maybe you can add to the features. I read the book right to the last 30 or so pages and I forget to sign it out and poof, it is gone and I have to wait again just to finish the book! Frustrating and you would think I would remember to watch how many more days I have left! If you could give a warning like 2 days left or something to that effect, it would be very helpful.
  • Libby very well 5/5

    By docweddle
    I just installed Libby last week and have already downloaded two Stephen King books. The downloads were quick and seamless, as were the returns. The Libby app was very easy to use and had intuitive controls. I am loving Libby.
  • Love it!!! 5/5

    By Musshel
    I love using Libby by Overdrive. It’s nice to be able to borrow both audiobooks and ebooks using my library card. They have a good selection. I wish they had more.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By vickieknits
    Consistently reliable.
  • Blue tooth Connection issue 2/5

    By Liannt
    This could be a great app if the Bluetooth connection actually work. so it takes 10 tries to connect and stay connected this is the second version they still can’t figure it out.
  • Great app... I love it! 5/5

    By jinx17
    Libby has been a real joy. I'm never without an audio book when I need one. The downloads are fast. I have had no problems at all .... and it's free!! Thx Libby people
  • It's missing something important 4/5

    By Shutterbug Sue
    I am currently watching The Great Course videos through my local library through the original Overdrive app. Libby is more aesthetically pleasing, simple and intuitive, but the only options are ebooks and audiobooks. You cannot watch library videos through it.
  • Bookmarks don’t save 3/5

    By rikardo7t1
    I mainly use for audiobooks. Bookmarks disappear or book will resume 5 or 6 chapters ago. Other than that, it’s adequate.
  • Smart responsive adaptable 5/5

    By Jj6637gjkkl
    Great app to manage your library card, browse for titles and listen to audiobooks. Highly recommended improvement from overdrive.
  • One library only 2/5

    By Thejahn
    This will not search multiple libraries at once. I have memberships to various libraries around my state with different overdrive subscriptions. This is an excellent interface for one library.
  • Almost better than Audible! 5/5

    By duduwee
    I use Audible and Libby on a frequent basis, and Libby is a serious competitor. Let’s make use of our public libraries and keep them alive! :-)
  • Love Libby. New update messed me up 5/5

    By 10secfwd
    I love this app. Clean and straightforward. It is pleasant to the eye and great to work with overdrive. I use it mostly for audiobooks and it works great. Love it!
  • Much better than old overdrive for iPhone 5/5

    By LuluNoriega
    I used to have to go back and forth from library webpage and overdrive app. Everything is integrated in Libby, including audiobooks, holds, checkout, download and reading. Very nice, easy to use.
  • A man called ove 4/5

    By Sweller15
    Loved it. The app is great
  • Great, but... 4/5

    By Danimalmanimal
    Just kills my battery. I don’t need it automatically downloading every audiobook I get, as it takes up space. Other than that, awesome.
  • Use it everyday! 4/5

    By Joyous 123
    I've recommended it to many people. I'm especially using it for audiobooks. While there is often a wait for popular books (this is a library access issue not Libby app issue) I love that you get information about where you are in the loan line to keep you in the know. That is great. While it is rather intuitive to use, I'm still trying to figure out tags/ratings and even some search functions. I just need to put a bit more time to dig deeper. Overall with very little info or understanding I was immediately able to use this app! Thanks so much for a great app.
  • Beautiful, functional, intuitive 5/5

    By 19264204
    This app is a joy to use. I’m more engaged with my library’s digital media than ever before, and I heckin LOVE it. Get this app. I’ve already listened to $200 on Audiobooks. The UI is beautiful. There’s a sleep feature for playing audiobooks. Reading from your phone or tablet is easy and beautiful too. A+ for making an app I knew I needed but didn’t think was possible. So grateful!
  • THIS is how to use Overdrive! 5/5

    By bfchris
    Overdrive is a terrific link to local libraries, but please don’t use the app by that name. Libby remembers all your library cards, your place in all your books (across devices), and even automatically downloads the books one has checked out—from all libraries. With Libby, you can see from which library you checked out a book, and keep up with how close you might be to your limit of checkouts and holds. Delete Overdrive, install Libby, and stop pulling your hair out!
  • Need to add the ability to bookmark with Apple Watch 4/5

    By TeachNTech
    I listen to audio books while driving in my car. I was thrilled to discover that I can control the app from my Apple Watch, but it doesn’t offer a way to bookmark something in the audio book from the watch. Sometimes when listening to an audio book, I want to bookmark something to return to later. If I had this option on my watch it would be a huge help.
  • Libby 5/5

    By saralucindy
    The best I can imagine...They got it right in all ways.
  • Info at a glance 4/5

    By APSchaum
    I am getting used to Libby after using Overdrive for years. I wish I could still see the pages left if the book and chapter as well as the clock at all times.
  • Enjoyable, Convenient 4/5

    By Bocephus13
    I love Libby on my iPad, especially late at night when I finish one book and I can browse for the next.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By zephadanora
    You don’t even need a library card to access any library pretty much in the united states. You also don’t need internet to read books you have already checked out. Changed my life, amazing app. This has helped me to start reading again and i thank you libby. The only thing i wish you could add is a feature to change it to daytime look or a night look.
  • 👍 5/5

    By pikaimmi ; )
  • Good but....... 4/5

    By Makaila😜
    Maybe the creators of this app can put this app on no WiFi needed to use this app😊
  • Audiobook Fan 5/5

    By JD ~
    Great app!
  • Great! 5/5

    By Blu Boy88
    It is very helpful, navigates well, and simplifies the downloading.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Fandomania
    Such an improvement over the original Overdrive app. Easy to use and visually appealing.
  • Wonderful 5/5

    By ripleyjones
    I love this app and use it to listen to audio books.
  • Highly recommend over original OverDrive app 5/5

    By elicabeta
    I highly recommend people, especially the senior citizens, to use Libby over OverDrive because it is much simpler and direct. On OverDrive, you borrow a book and then you have to figure out which link in the menu takes you to download the book and then after book is downloaded you have to find another link in the menu to read/listen to your book. On Libby, just two locations (very simple). You tap the bottom icon to the left to search the library catalog and borrow or hold. You tap the bottom icon to the right to see what you borrowed or on hold for and tap on it to download or read/listen. Just two screens. I’m a stickler for original apps but this is a much better app than the original OverDrive.
  • I love Libby 5/5

    By Jli23
    Libby is amazing because we get free books for kids parents adults and many more. Do you like books? We were millions and thousands and hundreds and millions of them in Libby!
  • My favorite app!! 5/5

    By Jzmommy
    Makes finding and listening to audio books seamless! My husband and I have both our cards synced on the account, and since we swap who takes and picks up the kids at school, we can pick up books where the other left off- keeps our family “on the same page” so we can better share our reading adventures! Love it!
  • Great idea, too buggy 2/5

    By R19102
    Too many problems. Sometimes can't open book, loses place, etc. just not ready but will be great when it's fixed.
  • This app is fantastic, user friendly and fast! 5/5

    By ~=edeath=~
    As a frequent user of the audiobook services, I greatly enjoy the ability to multitask, absorbing information and doubling my productivity! The selection is broad and engaging, the simplicity of automatic checkout ensures that all users get to share a title, without worrying about late fees. I would voluntarily pay late fees just to keep this app developing and reaching out to new users to share the wealth of information. Thank you for a wonderful product!
  • In order to ask a question... 3/5

    By Vilifying kl
    You have to have your library card. I thought the idea was to not have to have your library card on hand to use the app? Fix that please, so that I can ask why there is no warning when a book is returned. I was in the final chapters of a book I was reading and it just disappeared. Sure, I lost track of time reading it, but a little warning before its return would have been nice. I thought the app broke.
