Pros and cons of OverDrive: eBooks & audiobooks app for iPhone and iPad

OverDrive: eBooks & audiobooks app good for

I have been using Overdrive for borrowing library books for 8 years and have been impressed by the efficient way they handle borrowing and returning of books. I can place titles I find into a list for later borrowing and shortlist titles onto a hold list for immediate, automatic borrowing as they become available. Overdrive is excellent! I would recommend its use over kindle, iBooks and Digital Editions, which I have also tried previously.
Its not the best experience, but it does its job perfectly. I love listening to audiobooks with Overdrive.
A paradise to use compared to other library apps that Ive tried to use.
Everything is perfect! I love it ! Just wish, German libraries would join the app
So nice to have a library at your fingertips. Some interface issues and a few more text/background features would be nice for better reading customization (softer grey background with white text would be nicer than the current white text on black background)
I love being able to access my librarys electronic resources and take them with me wherever I go. Ive never had any issues with the app — only with having too much to read and too little time!

Some bad moments

Font size is STILL a problem. It has been 10 months, is a known problem for many. Published fixes do NOT work. Turning off "default layout" isn't a solution. I have loved OverDrive for years but I rarely use it on my Ipad2 as downloaded library books are basically unreadable.
I cannot access to the programme from the update on february 2016. Please fix
This new version is not working! Each time I try to open an ebook, overdrive crushes. I tried everything, turn iPad on-off, delete and reinstall overdrive etc. it simply continues to crush. I have an iPad mini and am based in france.
I have just done the new update but it is still crashing. Please try and fix it as i miss reading on my Mini.
In spite of following all the help instructions, the app continues to crash every time I try to download an e-book. For the past month I have only been able to read books on line. Very frustrating.
... especially while trying to download content. Was not able to read a single line so far - Unusable!!!
