OK? But had to remove Running android 4.4.4. Worked with local library. However, not sure if this is an android or app problem, but it tries to load all PDF type downloads (and fails) instead if my being allowed to choose an app from dropdown. Update. Reinstalled, but must now use Firefox instead of chrome to download PDFs. Update 12/9 - fails completely under android 5.0.1. Useless!!

Crashes, wont redownload books, Tried uninstalling, reinstalling, force stop, clear data/cache. Not worth tge effort. If libraries want to go to digital books then they need to find a USER FRIENDLY app like Kindle or Nook.

frustrated with freading I am really frustrated with this app! I am having similar problems as most everyone else. I log into my local library, choose my book, download, and it takes my tokens. Then go to " my downloads" try to open...nothing happens. Hit redownload and the it tells me unfortunately freading has stopped. My tokens are gone and I just see the loan days dwindle down until it expires. I love reading and am so frustrated and dissatisfied.

Horrible I am stuck using this app because it is what my library uses. I have to enter my library card every time. Half the books come in with no title, they are just blank squares. You can't get rid of expired books.. they will clog your reading list for eternity. Many times when I try to download a book, the app just dies. The help file addresses none of these issues. I don't understand why it is so difficult for libraries to come up with a good ereader like Calibre.

Down for the last week :-( Every time I try to log in lately it tells me the authentication server is down. I'm running out of patience!
