This app is okay but please don't buy a book with intention to use the text-to-speech option!! It sounds like a mouse squeaking in your ear and it reads the text so fast that you can not posable understand a word they are saying. There Technical support is also not very helpful thus far 😕.

I enjoy the book selection. It is great to have books loaded in my phone to read anywhere. However, the audio book playing needs revision. It initially plays for several minutes very nicely, then keeps stopping. I can start it again by pressing play twice. But the whole point of an audio book is the ability to do other tasks as I listen. If my hands are wet or dirty, it is very annoying to keep stopping to clean or dry my hands as I work, just to be able to start the book again.

All related to audiobooks. Resets audiobook if the car is turned off while playing. Stops randomly every 10 seconds to every minute, if I pause for any reason and start listening again. The only way to fix it is to exit the app and relaunch. Sometimes forgets it has downloaded a book and tries to do it again but can't because I don't give it access to data. Also, can't move MY audiobooks to another player because of proprietary formats. Very frustrating. Same problems on 2 different phones.
