Never a problem with this app. You can set a time for it to run, for instance, 20 minutes. Then you can listen to a book as you fall asleep. If you miss some of it, rewinding is easy. I also set a timer for 40 min. a day, and listen as I clean house. It's fantastic, with no glitches. Audiobooks are the best! I've also used Google books, but it's a tricky website to maneuver through & I hated it.

The audio book are fantastic. However the podcast player is horrible. For whatever reason the player will not follow one podcast. It jumps from one to another. Even when you choose a specific podcast. It does this randomly. When it jumps it can't even play the next podcast in the correct order. I was really looking forward to having my podcasts and audio books on one app. Hopefully they get it figured out. It's just not there yet.

I'd like better User Interface customization. I'd like to be able to have multiple options for fast forward and rewind. It'd be nice to resize buttons, too. I think the play/pause is too small. I'd also recommend better syncing with the Kindle app. It's silly that I keep getting lost at different places between apps and that the Kindle app's audiobooks are different downloads and lack all of the functionality that Audible has.
