[Update: Apologize to those having trouble with the app. I have made it free since development has slowed/stalled. I'm looking for feedback on what is going wrong so I can fix it. Please contact me on twitter, @cpl_app. Thanks. 01/21/2011]

I wanted an application that could, at a glance, tell me when my current books are due, and if I have any overdue books. Instead of memorizing my account number and using the non-mobile-optimized CPL website, I created this app.

Current features

* Onetime sign in. Never re-enter your account number/zip code.

* Quickly see all books you have checked out

* Quickly view all due dates

* Quickly view all overdue books

I'll be continuing to develop this app, it is by no means finished. Future features will likely include

* Find the nearest library

* Renew books with one click

* Search all the CPL books

* Place book on hold

and whatever else I (and you) need to make this app the best experience ever.

All future updates will be free.

Send comments/feedback to your twitter account: @cpl_app

Thanks! Enjoy Chicago!

Note: This application was neither developed, nor is officially endorsed, by the Chicago Public Library.

What's New in Version 1.1

* Uses a new, faster server, so your borrowed list loads quicker
* Increased security
* Some new eye-candy
* Improve account management

Doesn't always work also still needs promised enhancements

Currently I have two books checked out; it sees none. Other times it has worked.

Book search and reserve and library location with phone and hours are critically needed enhancements.

Ap is great idea and I hope will improve with time, but not ready now.

3/5 stars

Needs work

It does show what books I have checked out but it also shows one book that I have on hold as overdue! It hasn't been correct yet on my overdue books, which should be none but it always has something listed. Please fix this - and bring on the enhancements.
