    I generally like the app - it functions well and is pretty easy to use. But I don't like the newest update of the app as well as the previous version. My loans no longer appear in order of "due next" by default, and often times when I return an item and go back to the loans shelf, I cannot get the "due next" button to work. I have to then click out of the shelf and then back in. I realize that this isn't a huge deal - it's a few extra seconds - but I believe this is something that can be fixed.

  • Used for a year now—fantastic with some minor quibbles Dec 31, 2018

    By Mmacmahon
    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. :)

    What this app does not make clear, -- a fantastic feature that they should be yelling from the rooftops -- is the beautiful fact that the second you borrow the book, it downloads automatically! I had no idea, because with Audible, you have to manually download books. I've had Libby a year, and avoided using it on car trips and while hiking because I thought I would be using my data! I'm so glad they offer this feature. Free books, no data waste, win win. Thank you, Libby!

    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. 💜

  • 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.

  • Constantly Freezing, Few Book Options. Feb 3, 2021

    This app is terrible. It's constantly freezing, which really sucks. Especially in the middle of reading an exciting scene, and you try to change the page, and NOTHING happens. There also are very many book options. They will have 1 book out of a series, and it is usually the 3rd or 4th one. Makes to freaking sense! Go back to R & B Digital!

  • Libby Audiobooks Skip Chapters - Why ?! TERRIBLE APP ! GO BACK TO OVERDRIVE UNTIL LIBBY GETS FIXED Jan 21, 2021

    By Roger U
    I listen to audiobooks from the library a lot. Cloud Library, RB Digital, Overdrive, etc. and our library switched to Libby now and I HATE IT ! Seems like EVERY book skips around when chapters should be IN ORDER ! This latest one jumped from chapter 4 to 11 then 14 to 16, it is a HUGE PAIN and ruins the whole thing. No othe app had such a problem. Thankfully for now Overdrive still works so I'll use that instead. Libby should get ZERO stars. I'm listening on a PC computer...

    The old version was excellent. This update is much harder to use. Many categories on the main library search page have been removed. Your personal timeline now shows round pictures of books that are so small you must click on each one to see what the book is. If you do a search by author the results don't mark the books you've returned as they used to. Also you can no longer click on a book in the library and see below the plot summary a list of the other books in that particular series.

    The updated app sucks. The user interface was barely passable before, and somehow they made it WORSE. But the biggest fail of all is that it logged me out of my library card, for no apparent reason, and now I have to verify it using a PIN I don't have available right now...with their only support option being "contact your local library". Fat lot of good that does me when the library won't be open for another 12 hours.

    This used to be the best app for reading or listening to books, until the recent update, half the time the buttons dont work, or it's slow and freezes. I can't find new audiobooks. I hate how they have changed the tabs (how I keep track of my reading) I try and put a book I have finished, in my read pile but I still see it in the tab I removed it from, until I restart the app. I used to prefer using this app over others but not anymore. They don't give you enough room to review this bad update.

  • 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!

    Depending on your library, will decide on the variety of books. This is so much better than paying every month for two books a month. I usually listen to 1 book every 1 to 2 days for FREE. It is just like a library card, you borrow all you want to read. Awesome deal. I did buy a year subscription to the Brooklyn library for $50/year, now there is no shortage for choices. I was reading the other reviews and I do have to agree that I don't like the new layout, the old layout was way better.

  • 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.

  • Any book . . . Nov 28, 2020

    By Inisfree2014
    The way I use audiobooks is to acquire the book (via library or purchase) and then go to Libby or OverDrive and “borrow” the exact audiobook. Then, I read along in the book while listening to the audiobook. Advantage: I remain focused longer. Words or phrases in a foreign language are pronounced correctly and usually with appropriate accent. And most important, I move right along and finish the book much quicker than otherwise. This allows me to “read” many more books. Another advantage, if the book is read by the author, that’s an “extra.” You feel like you are sitting in their private library, next to their fireplace and having a private audience. It’s very personal. To me, this way of combining both the text and the audiobook book, I get the best of both worlds. When I listen to just the audiobook alone, I find myself drifting and losing my concentration. With the book in front of me and reading along, I remain enthusiastically involved. Say I want to hear or read a sentence or paragraph again - just hit the 15 second repeat button - Voila! Two examples: “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” series. EXCELLENT! All those Swedish addresses and names of places. Second example, any book with necessary minutia such as Ron Chernow’s, “Hamilton.” Both of these books are wonderful on audiobooks. Worked for me! Try it! You might like it . . .

  • Horrible changes . Pls reevaluate. No longer will I or friends endorse Libby. Sorry to leave. Apr 7, 2021

    By Back Porch Reader
    There seems to be a robust review which I will likely delete Libby as my choice to read and go back to Overdrive. It seems s constantly alerting me on on how many are waiting, yet I have supported my libraries substantially for years, and this is “ in your face” . I often return earlier but yet when I miss a book, I wait full length of time as I have observed very, very few return books early. I do not care for your recent changes at all. Sorry this app has gotten much too invasive. Can no longer enjoy a right to enjoy books after my donations and giving untold numbers of books to libraries. I ask for nothing but a pleasurable experience and “ Libby” has ruined that. Sorry you must do better as all of my friends are voicing same concerns. No one likes your overhaul. Why don’t you consider we pay taxes to fund libraries and many give above that amount. It is insult to see how many are reading books to rush us and I’ve even returned without even reading. I wait full time with no one returning earlier than 14 days, and I return promptly. It is over for me. Sorry. You gone opposite and donations will also be halting. Sorry but too much is too much in your face. I’m very kind but this last change has irritated me .

  • Great app with decent features Nov 16, 2019

    By Liz J.R.
    I’ve used this app for just over a year and have borrowed hundreds of books. I use it to listen to books while working, driving, getting stuff done, or just chilling. Like a regular library, if there are books that you would like to borrow, but are currently in use by someone else, you can place a hold on them. The app tells you approximately how long the wait will be, and can borrow the book automatically if there is space on your shelf. It keeps a record of what you’ve borrowed, but tags you place on books either don’t last for extended periods of time, or there’s a limit to how many you can have. Unfortunately, it doesn’t identify books that you’ve borrowed while browsing for something new. You have to review your history to see if you’ve borrowed a book previously. Also, the app will show all titles that they have on record, including those not available through the library card(s) you have on record. However, you can’t read the description of books that are not available to you to borrow. In general this is an easy to use app and fairly intuitive. When using an audio book, it will continue to play even while using another app or the screen is off.

    Listen, I really love this app, but the new update is terrible. People have been complaining about several different issues, so I'll talk about one I haven't seen mentioned. Before the update, checking newly added books was super easy, and they would always appear at the top of the page. Now, no matter what settings you use, it mixes up the order, making it impossible to tell when new stuff has been added. My library adds new things constantly and this update makes it a real pain in the butt.

  • 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.

    Update: Love the app, but for some reason with some recent update I keep getting Playback Error everyday, the first time I try to play an audiobook, and is only resolved by restarting my phone, which also causes to lose the current location I was in the book. Hope it can be solved soon. - Libby is simply amazing, flawless... Awesome design and just WORKS!! Would just add some kind of wish lists so I can add books I find that I want to read later... But even without that, love it... Amazing job.

    I've found the magazine titles that migrated from RBdigital, but am disappointed that the choice of reading plain text and scrolling through articles has been hobbled. In RBD one could select plain text - a preferred legible option for me, with the options to choose font size - then swipe from page to page in this mode. It is now necessary to revert back to print layout mode, select another article on the same page for read-as-text, revert, swipe to next page, repeat ad nauseam. Not pleasant.

  • Irritating UI Mar 4, 2021

    By ubw2k
    My library just switched from RBDigital to Libby. First off, I was disappointed there was not a way to import my existing subscriptions / lists. Next, the browsing feature is maddening: books and single-issue publications are mixed in with periodicals. Making matters worse, after ~10 screens the entire list automatically “refreshes” for no reason — I was still reviewing results of my original search — and auto-scrolls back to the TOP of the list. Oh joy, now I get to try to remember which items I’ve already tagged as I scroll past them all again. Really annoying and error-prone. Then, when borrowing and beginning to read an item there are LONG delays when trying to flip past the first page. But don’t worry, the app “helpfully” remembers all your attempted page turns while it’s stalled... so when the new pages are FINALLY downloaded it rapidly executes ALL those page flips you thought it was missing...and you’re suddenly on page 13! Really dumb. And then if you happen to power off while zoomed in on a particular page... surprise! you’re on a completely different (random?)page when you power back on. Suffice to say, I see MUCH room for improvement, and much preferred RBDigital. But I must use what my library has chosen. And it does “work” (to a low standard) for reading periodicals from the comfort of my home... so I’m grateful for that. I hope the developers will improve the app. It can be so much better!

    I didn't love the Libby app before, but I worked with the quirks because I like checking out books for my Kindle and audiobooks. However, I do not like this recent update AT ALL. It's hard to find things, navigating between pages is clunky, it's not intuitive in the least. If there was another option to check out Kindle library books, I'd jump ship immediately. I may still use Overdrive/Libby to get ebooks, but I'll do my browsing on my library's page and only use the app for the last step...

  • 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.

  • Crashes often Apr 6, 2021

    By stitchinbird
    Works well for reading ebooks and listening to audiobooks, which unfortunately is only about 10-20% of what I want to do. I am mainly interested in the magazine availability. My library previously went through rb digital for this, which had issues of its own but was functional and useful. The transition to Libby was initially fine, the controls are intuitive and the borrowing process is not a major problem for me. The issue is that when actually reading a magazine, the app crashes repeatedly, even if the magazine is already completely downloaded. This totally interrupts reading/browsing and makes the app really unpleasant to use. Sometimes it is a minor inconvenience when it only crashes about 2-3 times in the approximately 20 minutes it takes me to read a magazine. Other times it will barely show me the cover page for 30 seconds before crashing. Again, this is when the thing I am trying to read is fully downloaded and the app is not in the process of downloading anything else. My best guess is that the page turning animation graphics are too much for my iPad to handle, but the previous service did that too and this same device was able to handle it. Really wish this would be fixed because the local libraries are not fully open so this is my only option currently.

    The old version was excellent. This update is much harder to use. Many categories on the main library search page have been removed. Your personal timeline now shows round pictures of books that are so small you must click on each one to see what the book is. If you do a search by author the results don't mark the books you've returned as they used to. Also you can no longer click on a book in the library and see below the plot summary a list of the other books in that particular series.

    The updated app sucks. The user interface was barely passable before, and somehow they made it WORSE. But the biggest fail of all is that it logged me out of my library card, for no apparent reason, and now I have to verify it using a PIN I don't have available right now...with their only support option being "contact your local library". Fat lot of good that does me when the library won't be open for another 12 hours.

    I have been using this app for about a year and it has worked perfectly. I've read dozens and dozens of books during the pandemic. It still works perfectly if I use it on my Android tablet but it freezes on my apple mini. Any button that I press doesn't respond. It worked perfectly before on the mini device and I had no problems. About a week ago it apparently downloaded an update and now it doesn't work.
