I love this app. It enables me to listen to books while I walk every morning. There are quite a few choices. There are some books that are even better to listen to than to read.

I am an avid book reader. I must always be reading and listening to 2-3 books at a time. I have every book app that coincides with my library card or my prime account. Now that Overdrive syncs with my devices it's absolutely amazing!!!! The toolbar functions keys are just a bonus to how wonderful this app is for someone like me.

Since I now have Windows 10 I can no longer transfer audio books downloaded from my library onto flashdrives. Each time I click on the transfer symbol I am advised that I have the incorrect Overdrive downloaded, so I uninstall Overdrive and reinstall from the site recommended, only to have the same problem. I have reinstalled Overdrive several times with no success as far as transferring to flashdrive. I have been using Overdrive in Windows 7 for several years with absolutely no problem and have been recommending Overdrive to friends. I also want to mention how disappointed I am in the Overdrive ap for Windows 10, compared to Windows 7. It is not straight forward and easy to use like the Win 7 ap, even if it would work.

Library Books directly to my computer, tablet or phone? What is not to love about that? Easy to use and no return hassles. LOVE!!!

This app is amazing it combines library cards on your device so literally you can check out a book from anywhere! I love it.

Love this app for how easy it makes getting books from multiple sources to read. Easy to set to individual preferences.

Overdrive is not always easy to use; at the very least it's not intuitive. Navigating around could be much easier, and there are prominently featured aspects that were of little or no use. Maybe on another type of device they would have more utility, but I had a hard time imagining cause for such a configuration on PC. But whatever. You can play audiobooks from the Public Library without too much difficulty, and it's hard to complain much for any service that offers that. Audiobook-playing capability is what I want, which Overdrive does fairly well, so que sera sera.
