RBdigital is a free application for Android and iOS that allows you to borrow e-books, magazines, and comics from local libraries. The application supports the viewing of other content, such as videos and audio content. Although these are digital copies, you still borrow them from your local library, which means you must be a registered library member to create an account in the app.
RBdigital: Functionality and interface
The availability of content depends on the library, and just like a real library, you can only borrow things for a limited time. This application allows you to borrow and return things without ever physically stepping into the building. When downloading files, you can access them at any time, from online or offline mode.
The content includes books in electronic form, magazines, movies, series, and even educational content, such as various courses.
There are many libraries that partner with RBdigital to access this service. Many smaller libraries also support this service, so make sure your library supports it. A possible problem may arise if you do not have a library near you that supports this application, but you can easily solve this by joining one that supports it online.
There is no limit to the number of journals you can download, nor is there a limit to the number of issues that can be downloaded. When you open the magazine section, you will be taken to the portal with all available editions. The magazines are organized alphabetically, and the cover of the latest issue is shown. There is no possibility to subscribe to the magazine, only an email notification.
The RBdigital application is adapted for the visually impaired. The pages are displayed in a high-resolution image that can be easily navigated. Also, the options of zooming pages, enlarging the font, and rotating the page are supported. There is also the option of reading pages by voiceover, which works great because the text is read correctly and without delay.
If you like to read, and don’t like going to the library and waste time, RBdigital is an application you should try.
