Half the Number

Used to be five but can only take 3 titles a month instead of 6. What happened!

Works well

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.



Excellent app!

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.

Hoopla is the bomb diggity

This app is great! Allows you to listen to audiobooks off line when youre on the go!

Great for Audio Books

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.

Love it!

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!

Useful !

Most useful app for the iPad!

Love it!

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!

User friendly-Simple

Super easy to use. Would like to see more non-fiction choices. Use this app everyday. Must have. Thank you.

Wonderful content and easy to use

I love using Hoopla and finding such great content. Only change Id make is when you return something before its due that you can take something else out like the library

Ugh! Argh!

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.


Everything works but like sometimes it tell me the whole app wont work... but when it doesnt do that its an useful and great app

Get this app!

Wow so great love hoopla

Used to be a great app

Use to be able to have six selections a month but now reduced to just three selections. For an avid reader this app bites!

Hoopla is brilliant

The best


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

Enjoy this app!

Listened to three audio books while cleaning out the crawlspace of our house! Made the gruelling task so much less arduous! Have also downloaded CDs and many movies.

Love it!

Unfortunately I wasnt aware of the up until recently. Now use it with my library subscription and simply love it. Whether its an audio book or a nice read it is easily accessible, brigs to where I left before. Mostly use it in my car through Bluetooth as an audio book, very convenient.


Super app! Easy to navigate. Limit If 5/mo is a downer tho
