Nowhere in the description - the rather lengthy description - does it say anything about a subscription app with a 7-day free trial. (No, the "in-app purchases" line does NOT suffice.) This is info I want BEFORE I download the app. I didn't find this out until I looked at why my email was required. Uninstalling, just for the sheer dissemblement.

The club membership is fantastic! Author-read book bites are better than 3rd party book summaries elsewhere, and the curated collection is constantly expanding. I love the podcast that accompanies the app, and the app is continuously evolving and getting better/easier to use. The app developers have been EXTREMELY responsive to constructive criticism I've sent them, even making near-immediate changes to push notifications. Can't say I've had that experience with any other app... ever.

(EDIT: Reduced the rating because your app is glitchy. It keeps crashing. It forgets my last point of listening a particular book bite. If i pause to come back to it later and the app is running in background, it still just reloads the app afresh. That breaks my flow.) Loving the experience of listening to book shorts. I have never tried podcasts etc before. So it's a wonderful experience to me... And so meaningful!
