The selection of books is amazing, Having reviews of the specific reader is very useful. On my phone however the sleep timer doesn't always work. One time I could see the options, check the correct box and it works. However most the time the screen for the timer options shows no text and I couldn't get the timer to work. I would really like for it to work as I have a long list of books that I would like to listen to. Ahh -- I figured out the timer problem. If my phone screen is vertical then I can see all the timer details. However if it is turned horizontally, then the screen is blank.
This app is beyond the ordinary! (In a good way that is) Love the books and how the voices are so clear. I listen to these audio books when I color in my adult coloring books. Love the Johanna Basford books. The stories you get to pick from in this app are really inspiring for me and book lovers out there. I was trying to find an audio book app as soon as I got my coloring books. Some of the apps loaded too slow, some had too many ads, some had no FREE books to listen to but this one really is the one that fits me!
Loud ads play after a chapter making it impossible to listen to a book when trying to fall asleep. This didn't happen with the iPhone. I understand the need for adverts and they were always on the iPhone but never played just shown as banners. Now I have changed to a Samsung S8 and the loud adverts are horrendous
ALL of you audio book developers INSIST on believing it's MORE & MORE & MORE FEATURES which win you users, but you're DEAD WRONG. It's doing the few CRITICAL features WELL which will win over users. ANY idiot can (eventually) develop an app LOADED with features and completely BAFFLING to use. BE the team that SIMOLIFIES your UI/UX to the point it's EFFORTLESSLY INTUITIVE, and you'll have MY praise...
A good solid app in normal mode, but with poor Android Auto support. For example there's no jump back button in Auto mode; you have to reselect what you're listening to every time you go into Auto mode, which requires three touches; and exiting Auto mode causes playback to stop and forget where it was up to.
Awesome app! I downloaded some classic novels and history books that I don't have time to read at home and listen to them during my 45 minute drive to work. It's been absolutely great. I feel smarter already after only 2 weeks of doing this.
