Excellent app! I listen while I work. I've got an unusual issue where I fall asleep after reading for more than 10 minutes. Had it since I was a child no matter the situation. Even if standing and reading out loud to others. This has helped me learn so much. I would give it 5 stars if you would be able to download the PDF that accompanies books straight from the app.
Love It! They do a great job keeping the app up to date. Great controls. I like the 30 sec repeat button. Also, being able to set the narration speed is nice; especially if it's a slow talker. I've been using it for several years now and haven't had an issue or crash. Works well with Bluetooth, giving great hands free control.
4.5: Very good with a bit of room for improvement. New things I'd like to see include: 1) A setting that would allow for automatic removal from device after completion. 2) Some other sort options, like in order by series, or by author AND date, or manually. 3) The ability to amend the titles so I could get them to sort differently, e.g. prefacing the titles with series name and book number. 4) The Mount Everest badge is fun, but I'd also like to see one for over 100 hours (or more) of listening to a series (maybe call it The Alps). 5) I'd like to say thank you for the post-completion cue that identifies the next book in the series (if applicable). 6) Like I said at the beginning, this is an excellent app but there is still room for improvement. Thank you.
I didn't find the process of activating clear enough and accidentally made 2 accounts, got charged 30 dollars today and really wasn't expecting it. Ill admit its mostly my fault, but Im still not happy about it. The whole process was difficult, not just of creating, canceling and managing accounts, but also when I wanted to purchase more credits it in general was a difficult process, especially through the app. I believe the app should have every ability the website does, should be easier to navigate and use. Finding and downloading books was well done and easy enough, just account management, purchases etc that need to be fixed.
Too expensive. I can't see being a member AND only getting one book a month, or none if you're like me and tried this because of amazon prime only to find out that you get nothing... Part of prime should get at least one a month, paid subscriptions should be unlimited.
The volume is too low. If there was a way to boost the volume I'd give give stars. Excellent cross platform sync, great selection of books and the one book per month plan combined with one or two daily deals typically is more than enough material for my schedule. Overall extremely happy, just wish it were loud enough to hear when driving on the highway with the windows down.
