Libby, by OverDrive app reviews

  • Fail 1/5

    By BCKLaX
    I downloaded a whole book and somehow it still buffers, makes no sense, don’t waste your time.
  • Highly Recommend 5/5

    By dj markeeta
    This new and improved app is miles ahead of the old OVERDRIVE app that made everything harder to do. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
  • New favorite App 5/5

    By CaliMemento
    Absolutely love this app and incredibly easy to use. Perfect for the whole family
  • Sycamore Row 5/5

    By Lynn Tate
    John Grisham has done it again. Great story. Well told. Well read (audiobook).
  • Not Great. 1/5

    By Wsandoval
    I liked Overdrive so much better. I could rate a book, it was easy to see what books I had read. It was easier to search for books I wanted. It was way better than this app. I can’t see my battery life or the time on this app like I could with Overdrive.
  • Hooray for Libby 5/5

    By SC Jen
    Borrowing books digitally just got easier! Downloading your ebooks in whatever format you choose is no problem. You may choose to download or stream with internet availability. Love the features such as wish list or suspend hold.
  • Great App! 5/5

    By penandra
    What a fabulous app! If you read ebooks, this app is for you! Add your local library (or, depending on where you live, libraries — I have 12) to your profile. Search by author, title, or keyword and download it to your device. I mostly read on my kindles (paperwhite, keyboard, and fire) but use my iPad for knitting and quilting books. Place popular books on hold and be notified by email when it’s ready.
  • Usage 5/5

    By ktgplt
    Very easy to use and appreciate the quickness of getting the books.
  • Best app EVER 5/5

    Best app EVERR
  • Libby 5/5

    By scubacliff
    Great application. Used first time. Easy setup.
  • Amazing and free! 5/5

    By barrasmith12
    I have told tons of people about Libby. I stopped using audible which charges because I can now get all my audiobooks for free on Libby! So much variety and great recordings.
  • Favorite app 5/5

    By Butterflymom82
    I love being able to go to the library from anywhere, anytime! Just bought a kindle paperwhite and with this and the app, I’ll be reading all day every day!
  • Solid functionality , but disappointing 3/5

    By Monsterjuju
    Good app. I get 21 days with a book. Imagine trying to get through a 600-800 page book in 21 days. It’s tough. Try to renew after that time investment and I get “ there are others waiting for this book” so I need to get back in line to finish the book. And twice now I’ve had to buy books to read the last 50 pages or so. Might be my libraries policy, but it’s a bummer. I think I’ll just buy then outright more than using this.
  • Dewey Decimal System 1/5

    By Mernnn
    Poorly presented by the publisher. Author’s writing style is weak. Might want to read a few books by the best authors to feel for the flow and level of vocabulary.
  • Love it 5/5

    By TexasTraveler71
    Love it
  • Glitchy and difficult 1/5

    By Thygor
    Libby has a couple of nice features, like the single screen where play, return and other functions are located, but overall, its much mire cumbersome than Overdrive. It also has a frequent habit of jumping around in the playback, moving ahead or behind several chapters, when re-starting. I-am deleting it!
  • Libby 5/5

    By Fletchtina
    I love it! Simple to use and great to find books!
  • Natalie V 5/5

    By 👍👍👍💜💙🖤🙂
    It is a great app for people who wants to read online and audio read. All you have to do is sigh up with your library card! It is free and trust me you will be happy when you got the app! Happy reading everyone!
  • Semi stable 3/5

    By broncofarmer
    The app will not start about a 3rd of the time. It appears to require a persistent internet connection as it will not have a entire book can be reading along and make it a chapter or two then nothing until you are back online, but according to the app the entire book was/is fully downloaded.
  • Fantastic!! 5/5

    By tetzloff
    Libby is fantastic. I love having this available to me through my public library. The app works even better than the Audible app by Amazon!!
  • Selection great / usability is awful 2/5

    By JM Stump
    This app regularly won’t play books for me and my new favorite is it’s now randomly deleting downloaded books. I’ve been using this app for 6 months and each time I fire it up I ask myself why I’m not paying for a service that actually works. Free is great, but if I could get this app to work without issue once it would make it more worth while. But I use it everyday and everyday it struggles to do anything.
  • Controls are difficult to maneuver. 3/5

    By Well1by
    It’s a little to confusing to find buttons. They need to put all controls on one screen. Please make them as simple as an old fashioned tape player
  • Libby is great 5/5

    I love Libby and I am only 9
  • Libby 5/5

    By alcope99
  • Kabbalah works 1/5

    By Deo777
    This particular work is A flawed interpretation of the Torah. Very disappointed.
  • Dan 5/5

    By danzo rivers
    Great app , easy to use.
  • great 5/5

  • Libby 5/5

    By Skyhounder
    Outstanding software.
  • The best 5/5

    By AnthillSreb
    It’s a free online extension of your local library. It’s awesome. Can read on your phone or kindle. Amazed
  • Amazing. 5/5

    By JenRiveraBell
    Seriously. Amazing. Everyone who loves to read NEEDS this app.
  • Audio book suggestions 4/5

    By Elaineatthezoo
    I wish you would put length of audio in the front description so I could tailor a loan to fit my travel distance. Also hard to go back and forth within my searches. It backs to top of list too often. Had trouble finding "Christmas audio books" to borrow. Technically it is good on playing, pausing, starting, etc.
  • Great features! (One suggestion in body) 5/5

    By Rissa Jo
    This is a great app. Very user-friendly and smooth. Nicely done! My one request, as someone who often falls asleep 5 minutes into a book, is: Can you add additional sleep timer options? Maybe 10 and 15 minute options in addition to the 30? Hopefully that can make it to the developers. Nice app!
  • Love it but I have some issues 5/5

    By nvme9
    I love this app❤️❤️. But I used to be able to read some books on my iPad without WiFi but the same book now needs WiFi to be read so maybe it’s a glitch I’m not sure? Otherwise this is probably the best ebook app out there.
  • “!” 2/5

    By Sir Valence
    I like the look of this app, but it keeps failing on me. I will be listening to a book in my car and it stops playing. The “play” triangle button shows an “!” , which tells me nothing about what is wrong or how to correct it. Restarting the app while I have internet access seems to fix it, but that doesn’t help me in my car. I shouldn’t need to provide this app with cell data so I’m not going to try that. I’m just going back to tools Overdrive app.
  • A great idea. 3/5

    By loopster9
    First time user. I was very excited to get a book from hold. I still think it is a great idea, but I will have to get used to the idea of dropping any current reads when my hold becomes available and not being able to renew a hold. There was just no way to finish it in five days (unless I quit my job 🤪) and I could not renew it because others are holding it. Choices were to go back on hold or buy the book. So, I bought the book.
  • Love it 5/5

    By alvfont
    Love your app. Save me a lot of time not having to return the books at the library.
  • Love Libby! Please add volume control 5/5

    By ElielM
    The app is so much more streamlined than Overdrive Only thing missing is the ability to adjust the volume of audiobooks. Most are recorded with lots of head room and can use a boost. Turning the device volume way up to account for this results in some surprising sounds when other notices come in at their regular volume. Thanks for this!
  • So convenient! 5/5

    By koolkiddo007
    I am a college student with a very busy schedule and most of the time I don’t have enough time or energy to go to my local library during the day. At night I try to read and after finding this app it has been SO easy for me to just “pick up” a book read it and not have to get out of my warm bed hahahah! Amazing, definitely recommend for anyone who is too lazy like me to go get hard copy books or simply likes to read digitally!
  • Downloads not working? 5/5

    By Dancingmobs
    So recently my books don’t open and download but the solution is simple: borrow books and send them to kindle.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By ohmolly
    Left audible, and will never look back! Libby is the perfect cost-friendly alternative!
  • Great until this last update 3/5

    By ipray4u2000
    This app worked perfectly and seamlessly until the last update. Since then books that I have downloaded must re-download every chapter, but only if you are online. Audio books are cutting off the end of the chapters and skipping all around the book from early chapters to later ones or going back into the earlier part of the book randomly. Happy to give this 5 stars when it returns to its 5 star ability.
  • This would have been a five star 4/5

    By Blemmers
    Really do love this app. However, I was downloading a book tonight, and now no books will download. It is almost as though the settings are not correct or something is corrupted. Very frustrating, as it has always worked perfectly until now.
  • Great until this latest release, which is awful 2/5

    By SoftRAID Developer
    I have read more than 10 novels using Libby and always loved the experience. This latest release is really bad. It won’t display a book that I’ve already downloaded. This is very frustrating as I only have 100 pages left in a 600 page book. It keeps telling me that it couldn’t reload pages because of. A network problem. Previous versions would download an entire book and all of it could be then read without any network access.
  • Fantastic idea to keep all library materials in one place! 5/5

    By jhamja
    Fantastic idea to keep all library materials in one place!
  • Books are not loading 1/5

    By 4im
    I just downloaded libby and put in my information and borrowed a book, but now my book is not loading. I can’t read it at all. I have already deleted the app and downloaded it again, but it still does not work. Help!
  • Good but not perfect 3/5

    By Saw05
    I like the way the app plays audio books that you can download. Usually, this works; I finished one book with not too much trouble. My second book however does not play well. I downloaded the book, and it worked fine for the first few chapters. After that, it would not hold a cue, and would often either jump back a few chapters or jump to the end of the last chapter. When I tried to fast forward or rewind, it would start back at the same spot.
  • Libby is fantastic! 5/5

    By senilegenius
    If you want a great user experience, Libby’s got it! Plus access to e-books and audiobooks from your local library. Yay!
  • Unreliable and inconsistent 1/5

    By Jdcarlin
    Just about the worst app for downloading library books
  • Libby is Awesome!!! 5/5

    By Rocklover818
    First time writing a review but I have been an avid book borrower for many years. Libby is a great interactive system, user friendly.
