  • Great App, Great Service Aug 1, 2020

    By AmeliaBedelia22
    Libby is an essential app for book lovers, particularly during this time when many libraries are closed to visitors. I have been using the app for several years and always been happy with it. Recently, updates to the app have made it even better—particularly the option to have a hold delivered later (useful when multiple holds come available at the same time). The app is easy to use for reading and listening on the go, but I also love the ease of sending ebooks to my Kindle when I want a larger screen. (One downside is not being able to send audiobooks to Audible, which would enable whispersync between ebook and audiobook for readers who are doing both, but I suspect that’s an issue with Amazon’s audiobook model rather than the library.) I like being able to track how long I will need to wait for a book (Libby often overestimates the wait time, which I appreciate because then I’m pleasantly surprised when the book becomes available early). I appreciate being able to link multiple library cards in one app and switch between them easily. When it comes to potential negatives for some readers (such as long wait times for popular books), it’s important to remember that those issues are just part of being a library reader rather than buying all your books—not an issue with the app itself. Go ahead and place the hold; high demand for a book often encourages public libraries to purchase additional copies (or digital licenses) for the book.

    It's a shame, it really is. The concept of this app is ingenious, and I really wish I could give this 5 stars. But—and there's always is a ”but”—the execution needs a lot of work. The lag that happens whenever I am checking the bio of books, to the point of needing to force close, is simply unacceptable. What's the point if I know that merely trying to read the summary will cause it to freeze and force close? Please, please fix this. Libby has so much potential. Don't let it die like this.

    Pros: My reading has skyrocketed since using this app—Libby makes books so accessible, especially since I have a busy schedule and hard time stopping by the library. I have saved SO much money by using Libby, and have tried out more genres than I normally do, since you don’t waste a trip to the library getting a new book: simply tap to download and tap to return if you don’t like it. The waitlist system is very clear, browsing is easy, and a sizable catalog make this very much worth it. Cons: Libby loses one star for some basic syncing and history issues. If I delete Libby off my device (sometimes I get rid of it when I’m busy and I don’t want to be tempted with a quick read!), when I redownload it, I lose all history of what books I’ve previously checked out and read. When you tag books, eg “To Read”, these tags are NOT synced across devices. I now have a motley “To Read” list spread across my phone and iPad. Likewise, these lists are lost if you remove the app off your local device. I’ve emailed Libby twice to request these be synced across devices and no luck yet. Overall still a wonderful app and love how it makes reading yet more accessible. A TIP for readers—if practical, try to get multiple library cards for nearby areas. It opens up a larger catalog of books for you to read, and a waitlisted book in one library may be immediately available in another. :)

    I think it's so cool how you can use this with your library card. This is my go to reading app! I just wish it was available for NOOK tablets. Kind of an old device, but it's sort of a drag to read a book on overdrive and it not be synced up with my libby app therefore it wasn't tracking my reading time. Other than that, love it. Some people are complaining on here that they have to wait 5 months for a book or so... can't you find a book that isn't super popular right now and put a hold on what you want? That's how you discover really good books. Patience and curiosity. I find it super annoying/entitled that people are saying this because eventually it will be your turn, just have patience and read something else. If you want it that bad, buy it 🙄. It's not libby's fault and I think it's also unfair to assume someone isn't reading a book because they're taking their time with it. There are plenty of books out there chill out. I however do think there should be a system though where it detects if a book has been opened frequently or not so then people who do need a book for school or something can get it because its much more needed by them obviously. The reason this is my favorite reading app is because of the synchronization aspect and that it can track your reading time. You can disable that, but personally, its why I love Libby the most. 💜

    I'm so grateful to have this app considering all of the free access to ebooks and audio books that comes with it. The only complaint I have is a technical one, whenever I use my bluetooth earbuds with this app they continuously disconnect. The only time this happens is when I'm using the app, so I know there isn't some outside factor causing the issue. I love the platform regardless and I can look past this minor inconvenience because of it.

    This app is the worst app I have ever used for audiobooks and I have been listening to audiobooks for years. If you so much as breathe on it when it's opened it will just skip all over. And, if you haven't had time to bookmark where you were in the book you have to get back painfully slowly in 15 second increments. Trying to use the scroll at the bottom will just cause it to go way too far either forwards or backwards. What are you anyway? In league with Amazon?

    Just won't work. I can listen to audiobooks on other apps (Overdrive/Cloudlibrary/Kindle) but this app will play to end of a chapter and then give me error message of "playback couldn't play." The books are downloaded so I'm stumped as to how it's not playing. I imagine maybe corrupt files on their end? Would love if they could fix this. I listen on Overdrive now but their highest listening speed is only 2.0 not 2.5 speeds.

  • UPDATE 6/6/20: new UI = argh /// (previous)Not very dependable Jun 3, 2020

    By amyc000
    Update June 3, 2020: After finally fixing stability issues from my review below, the app worked fine. I use to listen to audio books mainly. But as of today, June 3, 2020, with their latest update, I’m left perplexed. The new UI is clunky and takes 2-3 taps to do what I could do on screen before. I don’t see any benefits?? It’s not just me getting used to it. It literally takes more steps to do common actions — the exact opposite of what an updated UI should do. Argh. I love the idea of this app but it seems one step forward, two steps back every few months. ===== I use this app during my daily commute and when it works, it works fine. But about 2 out of the 5 days, I get server errors. Whether trying to check out, resume or anything on the app. Extremely frustrating not knowing if I’ll be able to read my book or if I’m locked out. It must happen a lot because on the “report error” page they even have a special message about it. How about fixing it?? I’ve also had problems with audiobooks skipping ahead and making it impossible to scrub back to where it skipped. I updated to the latest version, hoping that helped with all of the above, but it all actually seems to be worse. I can’t open or read any books on my shelf right now, as an example, the third time this week and prompting me to write this review.

    It has a wonderful look to it and is much prettier than Overdrive. But other than that, it's practically useless. It freezes everytime you scroll up. It freezes as you scroll down. It freezes when you want to read the description of a book. It freezes when you want to hold a book. It freezes when you do anything. It is so frustrating. You can't rate books or leave a review. It's basically half finished and mostly unusable. Update:It has been updated. It is still very pretty.

  • Needs Improvements Dec 7, 2018

    By Stephdeputy
    The functionality of the app is great...when it works. I’ve been an Overdrive user for years and have used Libby for the last 5 months. So many times I have to try the play button four or five times before it will work. I just keep getting the exclamation point inside the triangle. Then two days ago, I was down to the last hour in a 10-hr book with just enough time on my drive to finish it. That’s the first time I’ve gotten a message saying my book was completely unavailable. I tried for 20 mins on and off, closing and reopening the app, then doing a hard shutdown of my phone and rebooting, but still the same message. Luckily I haven’t deleted the Overdrive app. I downloaded the last chapter of the book only to Overdrive (something Libby doesn’t let you do unfortunately - and s good thing Overdrive does because by that point I was away from WiFi for the download and had to enable cellular download for that one chapter). Played it on Overdrive with absolutely no problems. I understand that the Libby app looks a little flashier and seems to have less steps between borrowing a book and getting it to play than Overdrive did, but until it’s reliable I’m switching back for my future downloads.

I highly recommend Libby! 10-23-20: Unfortunately, it is not functioning well since the recent update. I have faith that it will be corrected and be back to its awesome self soon.

  • Highly Recommend Libby to EVERYBODY!! Aug 12, 2020

    By Ash Sav 333
    I absolutely love Libby! This app is a fantastic source of knowledge and literature and I’m grateful for finding it. With my library card I easily gain access to the plentiful selection of books in my local library! This is wonderful in moments, especially those we’re in now, facing corona virus, but also if you cannot get to a library for any reason other than that there after. The simple curtesy of lending goes far too unnoticed these days and this was such a creative idea to bring our library’s into our homes! I highly recommend this app to all who loves to read, and for those who intend to put the book back on the shelf when finished. I love that there are audiobook’s as well! This is highly appealing and makes it easier to get through books quickly but also for those with children AND for children— Essentially those that are too busy to read. I am able to play the audio and the book is read aloud to me making me able to do my work, housework, and even shower while listening! Thank you to the developers of Libby and the team who made this possible!! I am so happy that this app was made in an easy to use format and accessible to everyone!! From the simple appealing layout to the easy accessibility and attention put into detail, this app was clearly well thought out and I could tell!

  • Convert from OverDrive Mar 6, 2020

    By CleanUI
    Finally I have switched from OverDrive to Libby. I loved the simplicity of OverDrive but eventually Libby’s overall better usability won me over. Libby is a must-have app for any avid reader/audiobook listener. I loved the recent addition of the feature of delivering later, very convenient for those of us who place holds on multiple books since it is difficult to predict when a book will indeed be available. This likely will shorten the overall wait for everyone in the waiting list. I also very much appreciate the ability to view a history of my search terms and it seems to search across all my libraries (significantly improved over OverDrive), although Libby does not clearly indicate whether it does search across libraries. This could perhaps be improved. I would have given a 4.5 rating but there is option for half points. A few improvements are desired. For one, it is never clear to me which direction my finger should slide to forward/rewind, and I often do the opposite, hence taking more time due to the confusion. It would be much better to have clearly indicated rewind/forward direction, e.g., those 15 sec rewind/forward buttons in OverDrive. Another suggestion is to make it easier to access the book details for books on my shelf. Right now ”view title details” is buried several menu clicks deep. I still use OverDrive to recommend books that my libraries don’t have — would be great to be able to do this in Libby.

    This app is great if you have library cards. You can easily obtain a few online! I have listened to at least 100 books, probably closer to 500 with this app. The reason I only give 4 stars is because sometimes when listening for long periods of time the app will close and you will have to restart it and the place you were at in the book isn't saved so you will have to try and figure out where you were and that can be a headache. Seems to crash a whole lot more these past 3 months.

  • Fantastic interface Feb 17, 2019

    By Phaikfancy
    I’ve only browsed one ebook sample but have listened to several audiobooks and the interface is leaps and bounds better than Hoopla and OverDrive. Cons: I’d give it a 5th star if the sleep timer for audiobooks had more than the 30 minute option (custom timer would be best along with 15 minute intervals up to an hour, then 30 minute intervals thereafter), the UI colors could be customized (at the least a dark mode, but I’d also like to change the blurred background color for audiobooks while in landscape mode), and I could customize my library card color tags/icons? (a minor gripe but two of my cards are too similar in color). I’m also not a fan of the settings menu but I can’t put my finger on why right now... Pros: The book layout is great (Hoopla doesn’t even do landscape or two page mode🤬). As a whole, the Libby interface puts books at your fingertips quickly and offers a sleek & modern yet minimalist design that appeals to the eyes. The sort/refine/preferences works well although an ability to sort series by order in the series both ascending and descending is missing. The ability to sync Libby across multiple devices is FANTASTIC (again, looking at you Hoopla) and saves the hassle of logging in on each device and manually downloading each book (again, Hoopla, sup?). The audio/book sample feature (Hoopla comeon!) is conveniently placed, as is the book sample, review, and jacket information.

    There are many things good about this app, especially when reading ebooks. However. Improvements are still needed for audio books, the biggest of which is that the play, pause. Rewind buttons on the notification panel are too small. I do like the player showing up in the pull down notifications and the backward button on my Bluetooth back up a little instead of to the beginning of the chapter. On my Galaxy S20, the lock screen buttons don't work at all.

    At this moment on 10/25/20, Libby is acting up once again. I'll be listening to an audiobook and it will just stop with no warning. Sometimes the whole app has crashed while at other times it'll just need me to hit play again Libby is a great idea that is always just short of being great. There are routinely small problems that become frustrating but don't fully make the app unusable. It just needs some tweaking to be perfect.

  • Quarantine May 14, 2020

    By Softball_lex_star_14
    I really love this and I have found no problems with it yet. This allows me to go to the library during quarantine without leaving my house. I have just one problem...I wish it would let us download movie too for free. That would give it a thousand stars but also one other thing. I have put a hold on a book April 10th there were only two people ahead of me and you can only have it for a week. It is now May 14th. And I have moved up in line to one so I will get the book next. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A MONTH and it keeps saying “wait time 2 weeks” I am getting so mad about it because either there is a glitch or they are allowing this person to just keep renewing it and renewing it and I’m sooooo mad because I really want to read this book and I placed a hold on something that was 26 weeks and that book is down to 4 weeks so I should have the other book by now but I still don’t have it. You really need to change this because it is not okay that some people can just have it for that long because my guess is they barley read it, they want to read it but they read like a page a day where I can get books done IN a day. So please please please get this fixed and stop letting that person renew it so many times. Once is okay but for me to have it on hold for this long when it just keeps saying 2 more weeks is NOT okay.

    A month ago I would have said that Libby was great. I belong to five different library systems, and it helps me organize all of my checkouts and holds. It also makes it extremely easy to look for the same title across different systems. Recently though, the app has not worked properly. I suppose I was spoiled by how smoothly it worked before, but now it randomly force quits and experiences long hangups for no apparent reason. I hope it can be fixed because Libby used to be such a great app.

    They just purchased RB digital. Good thing except they both LIED! Books that you were listening to an RV digital was supposed to be kept on RB digital so as not to lose your place! That didn't happen. Book was not in either place. Poor customer service. Still need improvements such as remembering history if reinstall needed. Good selection. Easy to use. I wish they had was the ability to rate the story, narrator, and writing. A good supplement to Audible.

  • an easier way to search, please May 3, 2020

    By how many?
    Generally I like this app, except when searching the library. It's really slow loading search results and I haven't found any way to view the results except page by page in the order received. This isn't a problem when I'm looking for a specific title or author, but for browsing it's awful. Many subject searches have hundreds of pages of results. To view them, I must always start at the beginning and I never see the results at the end. Being able to jump to a certain page number would help, but I haven't seen that option. Also, I read a lot of comics which have multiple issues of the same title. Each issue is listed separately which adds many pages to the search results. Could these be condensed into just one listing per title with the individual issues only appearing when the title is chosen? Any help with this would be hugely appreciated. Edit: 5/2 Have to remove a star, not only has nothing above been addressed, but now the app keeps crashing when I search the library, it's very slow when it actually works, and it isn't downloading my loans. I really want to like this app, I think it's a great idea, but it's too frustrating right now.

  • I will like this when they work out the bugs Jul 10, 2018

    By Maobfh
    I use Overdrive quite a bit and was very interested in a new app by Overdrive that claimed it could do quite a few things that Overdrive cannot. I downloaded the app and got started right away. I use an iPhone to listen to audiobooks and an iPad Pro for books. While they push reading with Kindle, I stick with Overdrive because returning books is more cumbersome with Kindle. I read a great deal and books rarely expire on my bookshelf unless it is a reference book that I keep as long as I am allowed. I have 80+ gb storage on both devices. I have tried to use Libby but it crashes each time I tried. I never completed moving my books over, nor logging in to all my library accounts. I think I managed 2 books and 2 libraries. I removed the app and reinstalled after rebooting the device and waiting several days. Same thing. I will be excited to have some of the features listed for Libby, but as contacting Overdrive can be very difficult, I think I will wait to try again. I don’t mind beta testing software but communication with the developer is critical. I am curious if others have had similar experiences. Reviews suggest not but some may just walk away.

  • Was hoping for better Dec 1, 2018

    By meself99
    When I saw the app had 4+ stars I was expecting a better experience. (I tried it for audiobooks only) Getting to preferences and settings is not intuitive (shelf-> actions to get to download settings for example). The download settings aren't intuitive: I set it to allow to download on network and not download automatically, but it still was trying to download all my books. I had to manually change all books to "stream" except the one I wanted to listen to. Then I downloaded that one completely, and there's a checkmark that it's downloaded, but it's starting in the middle of the book (I don't know where). It shows that I'm at the beginning of book, but I'm not, it starts mid-sentence. I then downloaded it in the regular Overdrive app and it worked fine, then I downloaded it in Libby on another device and it was also fine. So I had to download it three times on my data plan (no access to WIFI currently, and it's not usable on the device I want to use. App seems cleaner than the older Overdrive app, and it may be faster, but a glitch of the timer and chapter lists showing me that I'm somewhere in book that I'm not makes it unusable for this book, hopefully it's a one-off glitch.

And, if you haven't had time to bookmark where you were in the book you have to get back painfully slowly in 15 second increments. Trying to use the scroll at the bottom will just cause it to go way too far either forwards or backwards. What are you anyway? In league with Amazon?

    Just won't work. I can listen to audiobooks on other apps (Overdrive/Cloudlibrary/Kindle) but this app will play to end of a chapter and then give me error message of "playback couldn't play." The books are downloaded so I'm stumped as to how it's not playing. I imagine maybe corrupt files on their end? Would love if they could fix this. I listen on Overdrive now but their highest listening speed is only 2.0 not 2.5 speeds.

    It has a wonderful look to it and is much prettier than Overdrive. But other than that, it's practically useless. It freezes everytime you scroll up. It freezes as you scroll down. It freezes when you want to read the description of a book. It freezes when you want to hold a book. It freezes when you do anything. It is so frustrating. You can't rate books or leave a review. It's basically half finished and mostly unusable. Update:It has been updated. It is still very pretty.

    Into Thin Air was one of my favorite books of all time, and I was hopeful that this book will prove equally as insightful. To the contrary, it’s my observation that there are a number of facts that were misrepresented in this book (full stop), there are connections made by the author that were not appropriate or accurate. Additionally there a piece of historical and factual information that were completely left out of this book. The author chooses to connect specific bad/horrible decisions of some individuals to an entire group of individuals who are no way associated with The bad actors or their behavior. It is totally unfair to label all Germans as Nazis, and it is unfair to portray a peace loving organization and community like the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Based on a couple of bad actors, that are no way associated with that organization. In short, there are minority groups, of all kinds out there that continue to be misunderstood because they are misrepresented, and that is detrimental to everyone... including the learner. Unless we are able to get honest and clearly written information about any specific group then we are perpetuating the division that separates parts of our communities. #disappointed
