Love the idea, they have an amazing selection and up untill a couple months ago it worked well enough with minor bugs. However recently it it stops after a couple minutes of playing unless I leave the app open. It looses my spot and will replay the chapter I already listened too. I love this app for the audio books so I can't listen while I'm working and running around and driving. The continuous stopping and having to start out again makes this extremely frustrating.

Great selection. This app has many of the audiobooks that I haven't been able to find in other libraries. However, the audiobook feature of this app needs some serious improvement. It is one of the worst I've ever used. It constantly stops playing for no apparent reason. It also gets stuck in loops at times where the track will stop (for whatever reason), and when you push play again it skips back to an earlier place in the chapter making it impossible to finish the chapter. Very frustrating!

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to do this more privately through the app. I had this app a few years ago (different phones), and it still has the same problems--randomly removes downloaded audiobook files, freezes up randomly when I'm listening to books (even though I've downloaded them and clicked all the buttons to stream and automatically download when on data), etc. It's just not a very reliable app. I hoped it would be better a couple of years later, but it has the same problems.
