Libby, by OverDrive app reviews

  • 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.
  • Love it. 5/5

    By MrsTurner1
    I find it easier and nicer than the regular overdrive app. Been using Libby since the launch and I love it.
  • Easy checkouts and easy play/reading 5/5

    By Steinhia
    No more having to transfer audiobooks to iTunes in order to be able to listen to them. Libby is all on one and even handles renewals and placing holds. Love it! Love it’s kindle functionality too! I can check out and send to my kindle all from my phone ... or read from my phone at any time.
  • Buggy 2/5

    By Proud Guy
    Bookmarks keep disappearing. Book doesn’t start where you left off.
  • Who Needs Audible? 5/5

    By Bostonia
    This service is great. It gives you access to the public library systems books and audiobooks. I can get most audiobooks that I want and can listen to multiple in a month. You can’t do that with the audible service. Switch today
  • Brilliant app to connect with your library and new writing 5/5

    By Patrik6
    The app’s interface is fantastic. Simple and powerful. Makes searching for, checking out, reading/listening to books easy/fun.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Jstnlego
    This is an amazing app. It’s intuitive, attractive, and highly functional.
  • ❤️ 5/5

    By I just wanna watch TV
    I love Libby! Easy to use!
  • Shelter the Sea by heide Cullinan 4/5

    By mervadee
    A difficult subject written to understand
  • Every. Single. Day. 5/5

    By Jessthelibrarian
    I use this constantly.
  • I’m loving the updates! 5/5

    By Jedikimmay
    I love it but now you can set the sleep timer to stop at the end of a chapter!!!
  • The best library reading app for SF library 4/5

    By ddutt
    Beautiful interface. But miss the share button.
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By ValAGal
    Use this for audiobooks that I borrow from my local public library. Have no complaints. Works great!!
  • Libby 5/5

    By Book Worm V4ever
    I love Libby! Easy to find my library and read my fav books! Way better than overdrive! It is amazing! So much fun!
  • Great App 4/5

    By Barb 123
    I am enjoying using the new Libby App. I like the new fresh look and the ease of using this app. The main thing that I would like to see added is a way to keep track of the history of what books I have previously checked out. That way I would not check out a book only to find out that I have already read the book. A place to add books to a wish list would also be helpful. Thanks for continuing to make improvements to this app. I will keep watching for new features to be added with each new update of the app.
  • Pretty good 3/5

    By ••dance••
    It is very helpful when I am driving and I have to finish a book for school or something. But what I don’t like is that it goes out of date, and suddenly.... poof! It’s gone😡 I understand that the library has to pay for every book and that other people need it too, but there has got to be someway to change the fact that suddenly you can’t read a book anymore when you aren’t done yet. Other than that, this app is impressive and helpful👍🏻
  • Love it! 4/5

    By Blkqueen
    Great app!
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By vama89
    Easy to manage. Great app.
  • Stop looking. You’ve found it. 5/5

    By Doingitforthefreewallpapers
    This is the audiobook app you never knew you needed.
  • Elegant 4/5

    By Supersil13
    I really enjoy this program and feel it is a very elegant program. My only critique is I've yet to find a table of contents for audiobooks.
  • Man called Ove 5/5

    By JohnnyBuckLDEM
  • Not that impressed 1/5

    By Reads007
    Expected more changes. Many of them are copying cloud library.
  • Great Improvements 4/5

    By Nonnie Mommie
    Thank you for the new update!
  • They are trying 3/5

    By DarkheartLives
    Easily the most unstable app I allow on my devices, but they are trying. And I'll live with lot of instability in order not to read books in Kindle. Amazon tries to upsell you from a library book all day long and I don't trust who they sell what I read - and neither should you. Thanks for this alternative.
  • Love it!!! 5/5

    By Joan99
    Love love this app. So much better than Overdrive. Can borrow so much more. It is beautiful and so easy to use. 😘😘😘
  • Great app 5/5

    By komimo3
    I love using the Libby app! And it’s free! The reading experience is great. Will be trying an audiobook this week traveling in a 4 hour trip. Thank you for creating this great way to utilize the lbrary!
  • Bugs 1/5

    By Duhahbsusishshgs
    Crashes every five minutes since the recent update, on an iPhone 6S with the current, up to date iOS. And it has never been able to download texts larger than tens of megabytes. It will try to download them very slowly, then crash upon opening them. A book reading app that doesn’t support reading or checking out books. Junk.
  • Easy to use 4/5

    By NewMexReader
    I download a lot of books-especially audio books-from two local libraries. I listen to audio books on my phone while I am working and I used to use the Overdrive app. I’m pretty savvy with figuring out apps, but it was complicated. Took my phone to our librarian with a question and even she couldn’t figure it out. I switched to Libby and it was much more user friendly. It is easy to search by category (there are lots), format, author etc. The only things they don’t have (yet?) are a back button to return you to your most recent search page and the ability to search by subject. I wish I could just enter cooking, or World War One for example and search the catalog. Overall a great app to get comfortable with reading or listening on your device.
  • Refreshing 5/5

    By Bas8030
    The ease of use is comparable to Kindle and Audible interfaces. Love this app.
  • The Best!! 5/5

    By Zang62
    I love that you can look back on your history and that it shows how long it will take for your item to become available. They make browsing so easy. I use this app everyday.
  • Much better than the regular Overdrive app 5/5

    By NoMoreNed
    I really like this app. It’s easy to use and looks really nice. It’s much better than the regular Overdrive app. I hope that more people use Libby so it sticks around. I tell people about Libby all the time because it’s great for audiobooks and ebooks.
  • Very easy and fun app 5/5

    By MyPisces26
    Love using Libby to find my next read. It’s very user friendly, doesn’t crash and always finds my titles quickly. Switching between libraries is easy as well. I recommend this app.
  • Delightful 5/5

    By A Zynga Game Player
    I am truly enjoying using Libby. It’s convenient and easy to use. I signed up for the notifications when a hold has been added to my shelf so I can dig right in.
  • Love Libby. New update messed me up 1/5

    By 10secfwd
    Hi love this app! But the new update took away the progress on my audio books and the chapters are locked (padlock icon by it) except the first one, so I can’t skip to try to find my spot. Please, help and I’ll update review accordingly. Thanks. Otherwise, app is awesome.
  • Libby 5/5

    By Marlow , Philip
    This app is awesome, I no longer have to make a last day mad dash to return books or stay up way to late to finish it to drop off on my way to work.... the audiobooks part is the next best thing since the invention of the microwave ...
  • Simple awesome! 5/5

    By Mlewww
    I don’t often write reviews, but I just wanted to quickly share how lovely it is to browse and read books on this app. Simply awesome!
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By Rimoeng
    Easy access to all digital items at the local library. So much better than Overdrive.
  • Better than Kindle app? 5/5

    By lfischer46
    Yes, less hassle checking out, syncs across devices, two buttons for Shelf and Library. Neat and easy to use.
  • Switching tonight from Overdrive App to Libby! 5/5

    By The Real Captain Awesome
    Wow, held off for a while now on using Libby, but I’m totally digging it like toads mcgoads yo! Its nice that all my library holds and loans are in one place. I also love the feature that tells you the estimated time on the hold! Can’t wait to explore more about Libby!
  • The best audiobook listening experience! 5/5

    By usmanity
    I love how well this app is developed, the details are done right. The team is very responsive too.
  • Carplay!!! Please!!! 4/5

    By Brendan 34917
    Guys, most people listen to audiobooks in their cars in the US, for better or for worse. Can you please make your app carplay compatible? I've been waiting for years, as have many others. Many new cars have carplay as a base option now... Thank you, Brendan
