Boopsie for Libraries aggregates libraries across the country and provides mobile access to their catalogs, library locations, hours, events, ePubs and other content. Look for your library here - or ask your local library to be included.
This is a good application for library patrons whose library is supported by the service. Users can scroll the menu or put in their library system's name to pull up their library. From there users can search the regular catalog and the ecatalog to see what's available. Users can also check their account information from the app.
I was amazed how easy it was to use. I wish all libraries had Boopsie apps. Would be great if more were available here.
I think this is a fine idea, but it's hard to navigate through the list of libraries to find the one you want. If this gets much bigger, it's going to be impossible.
Nice and useful app but needs a way to set a default library.
I am glad to have access to my library's online site with this app. I did not give a stellar rating because I think the app could be improved. I have written the developers an email with suggestions.
I use this to find something to read when I am in a hurry. It shows me my library's available ebooks and gives me one click access. Really easy if you are ok browsing a random list of books. But cover art is great and it scrolls fast. I use it on my iPad, iPhone, and droid. Awesome. More sophisticated searching would be great, like genre sub lists.
Great idea for an app and the basics work ok, but I would like to see a browse function for ebooks and audiobooks. If I know what i want, then search is great, but a library of all places needs the ability to browse. That is fundamental to a library. Also, when you go a couple pages in to the list and look at the description of a book, you press the back button takes you back to the BEGINNING of the list, not where you left off...not very friendly for browsing at all. All-in-all, a good start to this app that will be useful in the end, but it needs some work.
Great way to connect to a local library. Cool features like links to eBooks, library events, and catalogs. Would be easier to use if library name included state and county/city.
