I like the convenience of OverDrive a lot, but I am not giving it five stars because on a PC the app skips at the end of some sections. Kind of an annoying glitch, but works just fine on an Android phone.

I use overdrive to browse and listen to audiobooks. It works reliably. The sound qualities good. However, it's poor at keeping my place, the bookmark feature is confusing. I mean why do you see your bookmarks by clicking up and to the right, when making bookmarks is beneath center? The interface could be confusing, like the back arrow up and to the left is supposed to take me back to the previous page. Right? It doesn't. It takes me back to my Borrowed page, and nowhere else. That doesn't work like a browser. I also find the controls very limited. If it's opened up to the wrong place, and you don't have a bookmark, good luck finding where you were. This is especially bad if your books expires. Even if you are able to get it back right away, your place and bookmarks are all gone. Sometimes the volume I get seems pretty, but I can't tell if that's due to Overdrive or my Bluetooth. A way to boost volume would be nice. I'm sorry I can't give it a better review than this.

OverDrive allows books to easily escape library walls and land in the hands of book lovers wherever they are. A great and convenient service to the reading and listening public.

We have always used overdrive to down load our audio books from the library. It easy to use and very fast. Would recommend it to everyone.

Pressing the Burn or Transfer button makes you download the desktop app. Once open, the desktop app does not show any titles you have downloaded. Zero help on app's help page

I love the Overdrive because it allows me to borrow audio and ebooks from my favorite authors on a spur of the moment and at my convenience. I can wake up at 2am in the morning feeling insomniac and I can instantly borrow and check out available books. I love this app

It is a fantastic app. Helpful especially whenever we went on vacation for couple of weeks.
