If you've used Kindle, it's like a basic version. When reading books, it does the job, but don't expect much more. The biggest bug-bear though is trying to find new books. The library (both app and website) has New Releases and New to Library categories. But neither correctly sort books - titles from months ago frequently appear at the top of results. "New to old" sorting does not work.

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.

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!
