Not an Overdrive alternative. I actually got it to download a book, which was not easy. However it constantly and obtrusively connects to Internet to verify the book as I'm trying to read. No using this on a plane or a long car ride. Overdrive, Kindle, Nook are much better choices. It's only advantage is that it had titles that I'd been waiting forever to get on Overdrive. Probably because people are fed up with trying to get this mess to work. Definitely suggesting my library not continue with this e-lending option.

Now working under 5.0.1 Had some problems under 4.4.4, and, until a few days ago, did not run under 5.0.1. So far, now seems fine.

Yet another cross platform mistake Cross platform apps that do not hold state correctly should be an embarrassment. I'm sorry my library has switched to this.

Freading This app is not easy to use, it works sometime but mostly not. Website needs improvements when browsing books from a search. FAQs and help are poor.

Love it on Nexus 7 This will not work on my new Nexus 9. I think otherwise it is wonderful. I use it every week on my Nexus 7, unless I run out of tokens.
