The app itself is great. Always have lots of choices of books. Lately, I've been having some audio issues. I usually mute the book as I only need to read it, but I have been hearing music and background music even when I mute the book. I toggled the mute button several times with the same until I switch to different chapter. Even if I switch books and come back to the same book, I will still hear the music.

Story good so far, app not the greatest. Sometimes the music comes on which I don't want. It's the same music on repeat. So if I get out of the app and restart it after the chapters downloaded then the music turns off. Also, the points thing is kind of weird. If I just wanted to buy a book, I wish that was just an option as opposed to making it based on points and chapter points and every chapter of the points go higher. It's confusing.

The stories on here are sometimes really great then add in the immersive experience, makes them even better! Not all stories are great but thats probably more of a preference. The app glitches sometimes and then doesnt other times and when it does, it can be soooo slow but when it's working, it's great. The points system could be better but new chapters open every 6 hours with a convenient timer to let you know how much time is left to the next one. Customer service is quick too! Always nice.
