We have just released an update to Aldiko for Android. One of the main features included in the update is Libraries. “Libraries” enables you to add your local library and borrow eBooks from it without leaving the app.
You can find your local libraries by location, search or browsing the list. By location, the app will show you a list of libraries based on your current location for your to choose from. By search, you can enter library name or keywords in the searching box, the app will then return a list of libraries for you. By list, you can select your country, city and then library.
Once added, your local library will be shown in the Libraries main screen. You can click it, enter the library’s eBooks catalog to browse and borrow books.
All borrowed books will be displayed in your personal bookshelf in Aldiko with a label showing when the book will expire.
When you finish reading a borrowed book, you can return it early right inside the app by clicking the return button. Otherwise, the book will just expire on the expiration date.
We have been working on this Libraries feature for a while and we hope you enjoy it. We currently support libraries in US, Canada, France and Suisse, libraries in more locations will be added in the near future. We are looking forward to your feedback. Enjoy!
