Would love some more features. Great if I'm using just my phone to listen - BUT I often listen to audiobooks while I'm walking or driving. I would love to be able skip back 15 or 30 seconds by using the functions on my garmin watch or android auto in the car. If I'm listening to a podcast, I can do this, not with a book however - it's very frustrating to be wanting to just go back a little, bit, press the 'back button' and it skips back a whole chapter instead of just 15 or 30 secs. HELP!

App works ok. The search function is pretty slow and does not yield the best results. Most annoying is the audio playback speeds. Whoever designed this clearly never listened to an audiobook. There needs to be smaller incrementals. Options start with: 1, 1.25, 1.5, etc. Most of the time 1 (normal speed) could use a bit of an increase but 1.25 is way too fast. On Audible, I usually listen back at 1.10 or 1.15.

I enjoy hearing books read aloud well. I hope the app will add more books. Often the ones that interest me are out on loan. It's irritating that the app often says 'updating library ', which can take 5-7 minutes, so it doesn't work if you just have the odd 10 minutes free to listen: open the app before you need it. Useful option to speed up the reading if you are running out of time to finish a book before it is due back. Overall, very good for a free app.
