This is an app to read books (among other media), so you would think they would have a typographer involved. Apparently not. The type is very poorly done. Spacing is bad, fonts are limited (you have all the iOS system fonts available, why not use them?), and worst of all, everything is fully justified—words are spaced out unevenly to make each line go all the way across the ‘page’ from the left margin to the right margin. That’s fine if you have a professional typesetter touching every detail to make sure it all remains readable, or even a good bit of software to handle it, but this is just dumb “we have three words on this line, so let’s have huge spaces even larger than those words to force them all the way across the ‘page.” Just stupid and unreadable when it happens across the entirety of a novel. If the developers insist on including this cardinal sin of typography, they could at least allow me to set it to ragged right margins (left-aligned) by myself, but no such option exists. …not to mention the terrible letter and line-spacing, on top of the terrible word-spacing justified type introduces. Fixing the type is not optional. The app is utterly broken until they hire a typographer to pull their heads out of their asses. iBooks gets this so invisibly right. Surely Overdrive can too.
I would give this app a 10 if I could as I’m a long time user. I’ve tried other apps in hopes to get more of a selection only to realize this is the best. I’m troubled as I recently changed my selection from General adult to teen to change up the selection of titles. Only to find that I can’t change back. I’ve switched to general adult, too all titles, and mistakenly to kids. Nothing works. Now I’m stuck on Kids and teens and can’t search for authors of adult literature. I’ve logged out and turned off my device. The app was updated today so if this was a glitch I expected to have it fixed. Maybe no one else complained so that’s why I’m finally submitting a review. My current work around is to borrow books on my secondary device. Once the book has made it to my loan section I can then download to my primary device. My holds work in this same fashion so I’m still able to enjoy them when available. My next plan is to save my history, delete the app, reboot my device, and then download again. Oh! Can you bring back the ability to search by alphabetical title or author? It’s a time sync to have to click through 100’s of titles or authors if you want to look within the center of the alphabet. I sort by author usually.
I use overdrive to check out audio and ebooks using my library card info. It’s great and I’ve read so many more books because I have it. A super downside with overdrive is how popular it is. The waiting list takes forever on popular books. I thought it might help if it were easier to return a book when you have finished. Especially ebooks. I haven’t figured out how to return a book I borrowed so I gave up and will wait until it expires. Anywhere I see the title there should be a return button. And a pop up message that says return book or cancel when you’ve reached the last page wouldn’t be a bad idea either. I also wish there was a way to pass on books when they become available to you but you’re not ready to read them yet. Like I will put a hold on a book and months later I get an email saying it’s available for 2 weeks. Well that also happens to be a busy time for me so I can’t read it and it ends up sitting on my bookshelf checked out until it expires. I have to sign up again for the waiting list and the whole time somebody else could have been reading it. I wish there was a way to let the next person go ahead of you in line until you’re ready to read it. These are my suggestions!
