Just started using and so far I like using it because ‘Libby’ is not complicated to operate and it has what I need!! I haven’t had any problems with it, but, like I said, I have just begun to use.
Lousy UX 1/5
Just stick with overdrive if you already have it, the user design/experience in this app is completely lame and not at all intuitive. Very klunky and overprocessed.
Back Flick 4/5
I am pretty much in love with my ability to download audiobooks through this app. But there is one thing that drives me crazy. Often when scrolling through a list of books, my thumb skates on the left edge and it sends me back to main page. There is a back button at the top of the page—isn’t that enough? I have to reset what I’m looking for, and reset my preferences each time I get accidentally sent back... which is a total pain.
Loses it’s place when switching from one listening device to another 3/5
Overall pretty good. My main complaint is that when switching from listening to audiobooks in the car, to my headphones, my position in the book will be lost almost every time and I have to fast forward or rewind to figure out where I was in the book.
Can’t say enough about how much enjoyment I get from this app 5/5
From day one this app has exceeded all expectations due ease of use and straightforward simplicity.
So far so good 4/5
By Jess 1 1 14
I have been using the overdrive app and thought I would try this out. It is easy to use and looks nice. I am not sure I like it better. It is easy to use though. I had to go back to overdrive to adjust account settings because I couldn’t find them here. All in all this works, I am just not sure if it adds enough to use instead of overdrive.
Audiobook not good 2/5
Loses place every time I start to listen again . Very frustrating
Best App Ever! 5/5
If you love books I’m both audio and visual formats, this app is for you. You can easily learn how to navigate it so that you can both place holds and check out material. Enjoy!
By Hey!!! CO
This is a convenient and up to date library collection and a great way to read and obtain books... Miss the old brick and mortar libraries but this is nice for those of us who aren’t able to make it outside anymore...
Best app ever!
The colony 5/5
Another great book in the series
one small bump in the road-please help 4/5
i think this is a great app but i have a problem i need you to fix, please: i typed in “murrieta public library” and nothing popped up. i would be super grateful if you guys could fix that little bump in the road. thank you
No thank you 5/5
Hey it works. UI is really cluttered, and it takes forever to update, but there’s nothing actually wrong with it as far as I know.
Enjoying but need to find my way around as I want to be able to put in author such as Sandford or paterson some of the mystery writers I love can’t seem to get there when I ask for adult content I get a whole different type of book. So I’ll have to see what I’m doing wrong.
Libby - Austin Public Library 5/5
By Randi Lyman
I love the fact that I can borrow some audiobooks without even waiting.
Very User Friendly 5/5
This app is great!
Libby is all show 1/5
Libby needs to integrate my current Overdrive Wish List into the app before I’ll use it. Yes, Libby is slick and pretty, but without my Wish List I’m reading blind.
Amazing for audiobooks! 5/5
Way better than OverDrive app, but... 4/5
By Srini Iyer
This app is way better then OverDrive app in terms of it’s ease of use, ability to jump from Library to Shelf to currently reading portions quickly. Also now we could renew titles from within the App instead of having to login through regular browser.
However one area that needs feature addition is audiobooks. Need additional buttons to be able to quickly fast forward or rewind audiobook by 10-30 secs. Additionally, the book play should stop when navigational announcement like from a Google Map comes through while driving.
Locked up 1/5
The app seems to be locked up and I think the only way to fix it is to delete it.
Libby is a amazing app I LOVE it!!! 5/5
You can check out books and return them with no fee! If you have a overdue book it just takes it back in no time automatically. And the app is 100% free. Download it now
Libby is ultra usable 5/5
Easy to use and I am so happy to be able to read borrowed books and as well as keep track track of reserved books I will get to have soon.
Nice looking but... 2/5
It’s missing my wish list! I love bookmarking books I want to read. I can view in Overdrive the availability at a glance and I can’t find that selection in Libby. Otherwise it looks nice and seems very responsive.
By Linh duy nguyen
This is the best ebook app I have ever downloaded! It’s even better than kindle! I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family!
Broken 😡 1/5
Since the update yesterday I can’t use this app. It plays for a split second and stops.
Missing useful features 3/5
By No One 38
Libby is ok, but I do not like that I cannot see the clock or the page number or pages left in the chapter without having to leave the page I am reading. This is a fault that will take me back to Overdrive.
I’m able to get hours of reading pleasure for this app.
Where have you been all my life! -audiobooks!! 5/5
By Bible plans
I’m an avid audiobook reader/listener. For years I have paid for subscriptions to audible and playster, but this is perfect - it’s free!! It is definitely worth checking out.
Love the convenience but not very intuitive 3/5
I don’t find it easy to move around this app and tabs /locations of stuff don’t make sense to me,
I just peck around to find things and hope for the best.... but it’s pretty amazing at linking libraries with my kindle. Reading samples in Libby is also cumbersome.
Easy and intuitive to use 5/5
I especially like how easy it is to manage loans and holds, and to listen to audiobooks.
Well done overdrive! 5/5
I’ve used overdrive for 12 years or so. The interface evolved steadily if slowly till Bam! Libby brought us into the 21st century. Intuitive and easy, I’m in and out in minutes.
Better than Overdrive, not as readable as Kindle 4/5
Pro: Everything in one place, easier to return books early.
Con: Doesn't have the extensive appearance settings that the Kindle app has. Fonts not as dark and crisp as in the Kindle app.
Big help finding what I wanted fast and easy
Excellent and user friendly!
Great Selection 5/5
By 123 Charlie
Easy to use. Many noteworthy titles.
By Mr Specktor
The UI is a great improvement from Overdrive (which worked), highly recommend, even over audible
The Easy Way 5/5
By Flapjack Jones
This is the best way to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the library by far!
Great app 😃 5/5
This app is so easy to use. I definitely recommend using this app to check out library books. So much easier than other apps out there. Geri
Best ebook/library app ever! 5/5
My library doesn't have a great record system for books borrowed. But with this app, I can see what I have read, renew, and automatically download books I am reading across multiple devices. Love it. Can't say enough good things about it.
Love it all around!
Love it 5/5
So easy to download to my Kindle, even my older model!
I doesn't take me that long, but I can borrow a book for up to 2 weeks!
I can even tag books to make them easy to find.
Really love the Libby app. Everything at ur fingertips!!!
No wish list 2/5
Maybe I’m missing it, but without a wish list I’ll stick with overdrive
Nice books and I love fudge a mania it is soo funny
Car knowledge 5/5
It’s great that we can learn grow and be entertained while driving in our cars thanks to Libby
My favorite app! 5/5
This is hands-down my favorite app. I’m able to access books & audiobooks for free with my library card. I spent a lot of time in my local library growing up. This is the library for the current age, now that I’m in my forties the library is always with me :). I prefer audio books. This app allows me to save my preferences when searching for books, place them on hold and gives you an estimated hold time it also notifies you when your hold has been received. When listening to the app, it will save the place that you left off as well as allowing the reader to bookmark and make notes at any stage he chooses. It also syncs with your other devices.
I wish I’d discovered this app a long time ago!
Good and useful 5/5
I use Libby all the time. Great interface rather than having to log into the library website. I am an avid ebook and audiobook user. I would recommend this app to anyone.
So far, I like the app. However, if there is a way to sync with other devices, I.e., from iPad to phone, I haven’t figured it out.
Simply awesome 5/5
The best deal on the Internet.
Love access to library content! 4/5
Libby is a great way to access a universe of ebooks and audiobooks for free.
