I've been a lifetime subscriber to Instaread since before they launched an Android app. It's an incredible service and I love the new content that gets added with such regularity. The only thing keeping me from giving the app a full 5-star review is the lack of dark mode. I can appreciate the black/white aesthetic of their brand, but almost every app I use regularly has a dark mode option and I vastly prefer it to the traditional view.

I prefer to read the text & listen to the audio at the same time. But the problem is that every time you press the rewind 15 sec or fast forward 30 sec button and then try to go back, instead of quickly returning you to the page you were on the app takes you to the very beginning of the book. This is extremely time consuming. Please provide the rewind 15 sec and fast forward 30 sec buttons at the very bottom of every page just like pause button.

This app is not for me I'm afraid. It's not a TTS app, it's a subscription service book reader app from what I can surmise, but at £85.99 per year, or £8.49 per month, I can't afford to find out for sure. It seems more akin to audible from what I can see, as in the book is read out loud to you, or you can read it yourself. Each book seems to be approx 25mins long, ideal for a lunch break, but is nothing compared to audibles books that are anything upto 30+hrs or more.
