Pros and cons of Hoopla Digital app for iPhone and iPad
Hoopla Digital app good for
This is the first app I have used for watching movies and reading e-books. I find the selection of movies and tv shows to be somewhat limited. Also I wish there were more e-books as opposed to audio books. However, the app is easy to use and there is always something to watch or read.
This app does everything I want it to - easy searches and borrowing, automated returns, effective organizing of genres. I do wish it had a little more selection.
This app is great! Allows you to listen to audiobooks off line when youre on the go!
I use the App generally for Audio Books. The interface is easy to use and Hoopla remembers where I am no matter which device I access. It occasionally locks up when I use the headphone to start and stop. I like the selections and see Recommendations often match my real interests.
My library just got this and I love it! Cannot believe the variety of media available - books, audio books, films, tv series, comics, you name it. Extraordinary!
My son and I listen to this every night before bedtime. Its excellent, never need to remember to return books! Best of all its free!
Some bad moments
It gets worse, not better.
Even though the app allows video downloads to portable devices, it seems to have difficulty if its not connected to the hoopla servers. It repeatedly throws up error messages.
Sometimes the movies wont run without an internet connection even if it has been downloaded. Not too great if one is camping.
The app periodically deletes a downloaded movie. I have no understanding why.
Nor does it handle video scrubbing well and the fast-forward & reverse controls dont work at all.
UI design issues like having to return to the top of the page to hit the back button are unfortunate as well. Flipping from the left edge to get to a previous page often fails.
Use to be able to have six selections a month but now reduced to just three selections. For an avid reader this app bites!
This is the worst app Ive downloaded completely useless in Canada just trying to listen to an audio book through my library and because the data base is only US I can read my books I took out. Completely useless app would rate 0 stars if I could
I really loved using Hoopla but now there are a whole bunch of things that dont work. Plus, Ive tried getting ahold of app support but they havent written back and its been 2 weeks. I was in the middle of listening to a series with a lot of books and most of them were on Hoopla. Then all of a sudden, the whole series disappeared and when I search the author or the series it says there are no titles found. However, if I go into my history and click on one of the books Ive already read from the same series, it gives me the option to borrow. You cant have it both ways, Hoopla. Either you have the books or you dont.
Also, since this all started happening, I cant seem to find any of the popular books on there. For example, I cant find any of the Harry Potter books. I also havent been able to find any books that are more than 5 hours long. I drive an hour one way to work so I cant waste a bunch of book borrows on short books.
I am thoroughly unimpressed with the direction Hoopla has taken, and with their lack of communication.
this app is full of bugs. it returned the movies before i canview them. it wasted so much of my thom to down load.
I like the app for whats in it but wish it could be installed on a non apple device (nook, kindle) Also wish there were more books available. 3 out of 5 books I look for I cant get.
and other. So, download free Hoopla Digital .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
