Review from Anon ymous
I have a membership with Audible and own over 200 audio books. The Warhammer 40K universe is one of my all time favorite Sci-fi themes. Unfortunately, though for reasons unknown to me, the Black Library refuses to market their audio books on their site. With the Black Library charging $35 or more on average for each audio book the price remains way too high for me to commit to a purchase. On a side note, I have noticed that they do not market their E-books in the Kindle Store either. Also, the prices on the Black Library store seem to be abnormally inflated in comparison to other online companies. I am the type of customer that prefers to keep things simple, so I generally only purchase digital content from only 1 source. That way I don't have to manage multiple programs or worry about compatibility. With the huge marketing potential within the 2 methods of distribution I frequent ignored by GW, it leaves me wondering if they are making a smart business decision. I would assume that making this form of entertainment as available as possible to customers through multiple distribution mediums would have a higher potential of drawing customers in to immersing themselves within the Warhammer Universe and leading them to try other things within the Warhammer franchise like the table top games. Unfortunately with the shortsighted decisions GW has made I am left with hunting within local used book stores to satisfy my love of the Warhammer literature for the foreseeable future since I am on a budget.
Good but could be better. Stops every time I get a notification when no other audio app does this. Doesn't display audio details on any car I drive. Have to wait till I stop to re start where app paused. Would love better functionality of app while driving for Toyota link systems or Android auto play. Great foe long drives. Subscription based would be much better as I'd pay 200 a year, rather then 50 a book...way to pricey to buy more then a few books.
The app has worked well for me. I have only had a couple instances where the playback skipped around a bit. Like a lot of the previous reviews, I was disappointed that there was no link to previous bought items from the main Black Library site. Though this is not a deal breaker for me. I just finished going through the complete Eisenhorn series on the app and was happy with the how everything worked. On a side note the Eisenhorn series is one of the best from Black Library. I have read the books multiple times and this was the first time going through the audio books. Highly recommend the series. I have noticed you tend to get a better deal on the audio books and audio dramas from the app over the the main site. A definite plus in my book.
I love all the 40k audiobooks from the black library and am very happy that I can now get them on my phone. It does also go back to earlier chapters after every time you leave the app. The audiobooks are very expensive and I think if you can buy some of the books in packs or have a sale every now and again it will really incourage users to buy more books. But most importantly you need to be able to connect a pre-existing black library account to the app!
Fix Xenos chapter menu and ill raise the rating. I love a lot of GWs books, if its written by dan Abnet its probably one of the best books out there. I picked this up because i wanted to listen to Xenos, and so i purchased the book ( funny enough the pricing is screwed up, charging 40 on the site, listed for 32 on the app and actually 36 when you buy it on the app.
You guys should be ashamed to have this app with your name on it. No link to correct accounts. Inexcusable. Complete lack of commitment to your customers. You don't even answer the online complaints. Over priced books and the player is less than basic. Your content is best on the planet so fix this app. Heresy
I love this app! But it is only getting 3 stars from me because there are no options in it and I can only download books if I am connected to Wi-Fi regardless of the fact I am connected to the internet by my phone data. So I can't easily download a book while on the road.
