Problems with Indieflix

The other day I was checking out Indieflix and as I was trying to login a pop up appeared on my screen.  It was telling me to check my email to authorize the mobile app but I was on my computer.  Here is what I found out:

IndieFlix has expanded library patron access to mobile devices and smart TV devices such as Roku. This enhancement increases the ways library patrons may view the films across many devices.

Shopping for the Holidays?

Are you thinking of buying a special gift for someone this year?  Or perhaps you have bad luck and your dishwasher has just clunked out the week before your extended family is due to come for dinner.  You can easily search the Consumer Reports from the comfort of your home and check out the reviews. 

What Happened to Zinio?

Users of the Zinio for Libraries app were recently asked to switch to the RB Digital app.  However, many users have found the new app less reliable.  The good news is that RB Digital is aware of the problems there was an update on October 16th to help address the issues.  Please ensure that you have the latest app and operating system on your device.  Any continued problems should be reported to info@lpl.ca.

Many thanks from your digital services team!
