Disappointing. I prefer Audible. Downpour tricks you into thinking it's cheaper than audible, but it's not. It is $13/month, $2 cheaper than Audible, but so many of the books cost 2 credits when the same book is only 1 credit at Audible. You're paying more. The app interface is basic, you can't search the store which is a pain. The selection isn't very good either. It's a rip off. Go to the library or go to Audible.
Battery killer Nice app but it drains the battery faster than an elephant empties a fish bowl, even when it's not playing. I was on, but not playing when I was charging over night but the charge only went up to 55% and the phone was very hot. The battery has dropped 5% just wile typing this short review (not playing a audio book). Ivm not sure if I will finish my rental before uninstalling this app.
Great to rent audio, but glitchy One of the few apps to rent audio books, but the app has a few problems and rental selections could be expanded. The app will sometimes stop playing and will only start back after rebooting the phone. The app will also drain the battery, even when paused and exited, requiring the user to reboot or kill the process from the Settings. LG Flex.
Simply does the job I listen to my audible books while driving. It takes just seconds to select my material from my cellphone and listen through my car speakers using Bluetooth.
I like the rental idea. The app drains my battery. At the end of each track it would stop playing & I had to play with it for a while, if I was not driving that is. Otherwise, I liked the idea.
Buggy Resource Hog Sometimes the audio will stop playing and you have to play around with the voice speeds to get it back on track. The app has become unresponsive sometimes, thus leading to the slowing down of my whole phone. Reboot at that point.
