    Slow and unresponsive. I just updated from the BryteWave K-12 app and am extremely disappointed. Why, after 5 years can Follett not get this right?! Every time I turn a page I get a spinning wheel before the next page loads. Same with resizing text. Navigating away from a page and back to a new search or my book bag causes a spinning wheel for 5 or more seconds. For four days in a row, when opening the Destiny Discover app, the spinning wheel appears and informs me that it is updating the app. After almost 5 minutes this app update is completed. Can you imagine a class of 25+ students sitting in class waiting for this to occur? The first time I tried to download a simultaneous access ebook, i was kicked out of the app with a message that I had lost internet connection. But I hadn’t. After finally downloading this book, I discovered that both text and pictures ran off the pages and I needed to scroll both left and right, up and down, to read the page. Really? Overdrive and every other ebook company can produce software that is user friendly and performs well. Why can’t Follett? I am embarrassed to show this to students! Rather than trying to add features, Follett just needs to make a simple app that actually works!

    I am a high school media specialist, so I have been using different versions of this app for years. I wish I could recommend it to my students, but it is so frustrating to me personally that I can't in good conscience recommend it to anyone else. First of all it takes four or five steps just to get to your checkouts. There are no speed controls to slow down or speed up the narration. The app freezes often or just knocks the user out all together. I am in the middle of a great audiobook, and today a message pops up that says it is unavailable. I tried everything including reinstalling the app. Now it says my book is downloaded on another device which means I won't be able to access it until it is automatically returned... in 3 weeks! Argh!!!! Follett should take some notes from the Overdrive app and make some much needed improvements!

    Love the new look but app is too slow. Unable for students to use on iPads to search/place holds while in the library for a short while. NOT school wifi. Even on my phone it takes too long and times out many times a day! Ignore:nothing changed!!Once students check-out a book, it gets confusing on the next step. The should have an arrow to show download. Then it should show the book with a button to read. Also when the student first opens the app there is nothing to show to search. Book on the top left doesn't explain it. Also looking forward to the print function for notes (like on the desktop version). Looks like more updates are coming end of July.
