It stops occasionally on my Note 8 and doesn't automatically go back into the book to listen. It jumps to the browse section. It needs settings to choose where it resumes or it needs to remember the last state being used. Consider drivers and minimize the taps needed to play a book.
Ever since recent updates, I can't read offline and the app crashes regularly. For a reading app, that's a major problem. Correction- crashes whenever I have a network connection and use it, after about ten minutes.
The app is pretty good. I'm grateful to have access to lending books through my tablet as my eyesight has become compromised recently. The only problem is frequently, the app will not open the current book file if the previous instance was not closed out completely. Also, screen orientation changing can cause the same problem. Both are easily fixed by closing all previously open appliactions and reopening this app, but it's just a little annoying. Otherwise, this is just as good as Kindle.
Haven't tried an audiobook again since the new update, but the e-book I have checked out is driving me nuts. Takes forever to load, has restarted me to the beginning of the book twice (when it says it's "syncing"), keeps changing the font size back to large, frequently activates the read aloud feature when I'm trying to turn pages...i just don't understand how it can be this hard to have a reader that just works. Stop trying to add new features, just make the ones that are already there work properly please.
I love using the app but recently it's not keeping my book mark where I leave off in my audiobooks. Please fix this, it's very frustrating to have to find what chapter & minute you were on every time you open your audiobook.
Thanks for listening and updating the playback speed. Still some minor glitches but overall a pretty decent player. Easy to use. Books download quickly and are easy to return when done. I like how the app tells you which books expire first so you know where to start listening.
