NLS Bard App Now Available for Android


Android users can now join their iOS friends in reading books from the National Library Service. The BARD mobile app, which allows users to download and listen to audio books and magazines, is now available for Android. U.S. members with a valid National Library Service account can sign in with their current username and password after downloading the app from Google Play. We've linked to the app from this post.

About time. Been waiting for this for a while now. It seems a well-designed app, and I can't help think that the team developing the Android app cared more about quality than the iOS team did. I get crashes and slow response all over the iOS app on my iPad, but this Android version runs like a champ on my 2nd gen Moto G. They do have one thing in common though: neither version includes a sleep timer. Too bad, that. Also, they forgot to have the Android version respond to system play/pause events from headset buttons, though the iOS version eventually stops responding to those anyway.
