App cannot be spanned on MS surface duo. Pages are just blank. App might be fine on other devices, but dual screen device users should avoid. Reported the issue a few months ago but it persists. Probably not a priority as it's an uncommon device. Edit: I appreciate the developer's quick response, but unfortunately the issue persists. Still not fixed as of May 2024. Issue present going on 8+ months.

One huge change I would request is with the playback speed adjustment, it's currently quite extreme. Speeding up to 1.05 to 1.10 & likewise down to 0.95 or 0.9 would be great. I'd never listen to anything at +3.0 speed... The app seems a little buggy, search results aren't the best. Standards are high & w/ continuous work it could be great. Membership read/listen library is awesome, hope that doesn't change.

I used the trial period and let this app go and they charged me anyway. The app is ok, basic, needs some features but runs good. No bookmark and the chapter button is in a really bad spot so I will hit it and screw up my progress. Need a bookmark or to move the chapter button so not be touchy. They don't have a good selection of audio books in the kobo plus section so I let it go. Need a bigger selection of audio books in the subscription.
