Audiobook player does not function properly. Book of the month is great, but my review is for the app. I've been listening to an audiobook and pretty much every time I pause it, it reverses. Sometimes it's 15 minutes, other times it's four or five chapters. Then I find myself listening to the same passages over and over, just trying to find my spot. It does this almost every time. It also frequently randomly starts playing again by itself from a pause.

Company is great. 5 stars! But the app is absolutely terrible. The audiobook functionality is so bad it essentially ruins the book. Constant crashes only to start back up at a random position long passed. You definitely can't use your phone for anything else while a book is playing or it will malfunction So, don't judge the company by the app, but also don't waste your money on audiobooks until they address the major limitations of the app.

Love the company, and I was super excited that they added audibooks but the audibook part of the app is AWFUL! It skips around, goes back and forth in large chunks, and it randomly starts playing anytime you get a notification, even if the app is CLOSED! So frustrating!! If you're going to continue to sell audiobooks you really need to fix this!
