    Great app! Just one pretty major thing...

    I really like sora! So much, in fact, I have it both on my computer at school, and my phone at home. When I went to school today I found I couldn’t check out the audiobook I wanted, so I tried to log out the in again, but it still didn’t work. Then I tried to check out a regular ebook. And this worked, but I didn’t want the ebook, I wanted an audiobook because ebooks can make my eyes hurt. I came home, hoping to check out a book here, then read it at school. I tried and it wouldn’t even let me download a regular ebook. At this point I’m really annoyed so I log out then in again, it STILL doesn’t work. I DELETE THE APP, RE- DOWNLOAD IT, LOG IN, SHUT DOWN MY PHONE, COMPLETELY REBOOT, AND IT STILL DOESNT WORK. I rely on sora for reading and this has me REALLY mad. Thank you, A loyal/concerned user

    Really good

    I really think Sora is a great app, and you can read a wide variety of books. However, right now I can’t check out anymore books because it says I returned and borrowed too many books in a short period of time and I have to try again later. Now, I’ve been waiting for 2 days and it still says the same thing. If that gets fixed, then this would be the best reading app ever. It is amazing in every other way, and has great aspects.

    Pretty good app

    This app is really good for finding books you can’t find in your school library I will be using this app to find books that I couldn’t find in my school library. This app is pretty great there really isn’t that Many issue except from when you have to download the book it takes a really long time. It took me about 10 minutes to download a book. But other than that everything is great the app is fast and easy to use.

    Pleased but more steps

    Overall I’m pleased with this app. I still would personally choose Overdrive app, but as I use what my students would use, it isn’t too bad. One silly thing that is annoying is the number of steps to start the audiobook. Overdrive once I open the book, it would autoplay. Sora it takes 3-4 steps to get it to play. Minor but sometimes we need the quick start when multitasking. :)

    Good, but could be Better

    I use this app through my high school library and I think it’s pretty good. The books are sometimes outdated and aren’t updated as often. The audiobooks interface is hard to navigate, especially when you’re trying to find the place where you left off last. As I said before: good but not great.

    Love this app, do a lot of reading on here, just wanted to let the developers know, I’ve been having trouble with the bookmarks. I can place a bookmark, but if I want to take it off I can’t. It gets very annoying when I have around a dozen bookmarks that won’t leave.

    I need these books in here please!

    Some books that I would like is some more of the Gone Series By Michael Grant, I’m almost finished with Plague and just bought Fear I would like it if you could add the whole series or also some more young adult books that y’all might recommend. Thank You, A student from a school!

    This app has been amazing so far, and I really love having the ability of taking a whole series around in your pocket. The ONLY thing I would change is that sometimes there’s only the first third and fourth of a series and I’m here like “Seriously?” Because I find a SUPER good book, but then I can’t get the second. And I’m super upset. But other than that, it’s been really helpful and I love it. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😊😊😊.

    I have a problem

    So I had this app for three days and since I am a fast reader and a book worm, I read and returned around 15 books. Later when I tried borrowing a new book, it told me I had borrowed and returned too many books in a short time which is totally unfair for fast readers. Also, it doesn’t have a lot of the books I want to read.

    Great app one problem

    Recently I found that I can’t set a sleep timer. When I pull down it just does the dark screen and it won’t let me set a time and I can’t leave the set sleep timer screen. If that could be fixed soon that’d be great.

    Different icon please....

    I love the new features of this app, it is much easier to access for students. However, I use overdrive with grades 6 through 12, and the new icon you’ve chosen is rather childish and young looking... will be hard to ‘sell’ to teenagers.

    Great! But only 3 books

    I think this app WOULD be great if there was actually some books. And all those books are to high level for me! If I want to actually want to have to a use for this app, I would DEFINITELY need more books

    As others have said...

    The holds are a major issue. My library actually doesn’t have a digital copy of a book, and I’m permanently on hold and was only told when I investigated it. Also, the app has many issues with not loading or even opening.

    Best app ever

    I love this app and recommend it to people that love to read, or always on their device. I am one who doesn’t like to read but with this app I am wanting to read every single day.

I love Sora, although the young adult section is VERY limited, There are no Stephan King books! Also, i think there should be more variety in the Juvenile horror section, I'm not talking about goosebumps, but Fear Street series. Overall, It's a good app, but it needs more actual books.
