OverDrive's Libby App Is Getting a Makeover

OverDrive announced that it is making updates to its Libby e-lending app, especially to cater to users with “diverse accessibility needs.” They include the following:
  • Refined navigation bar—We have updated each icon in the navigation bar for clarity and consistency. The active icon displays in your library’s colors. …
  • Search enhancements—When a user taps the search icon, they will see a new ‘Explore with filters’ section, with options to easily browse by format, availability, skip-the-line titles, and more. Advanced search filters are available with the + more button on this screen.
  • New Settings menu—Many existing settings (e.g., manage notifications, change download rules, choose your language, etc.) and some new options, like adding labels to the footer icons, are available in a centralized location in the in-app menu.

For more information, read the blog post.
