This used to be a simple and effective app, but with the latest update it's ripe with bugs. You can't change the playback speed. Doesn't show up on my car for Bluetooth anymore so no pause function works, I can't see the time elapsed, etc. How could they release an update with such simple bugs?? Good thing I only have an hour left of my audiobook and can ditch this app after, but it really sucks to go back to listening to normal speed!!

Seems to work well so far. Update: The July 2022 update is frustrating. I can't get the app to work effectively with my Bluetooth headphones. The pause and fast forward commands just don't work when I use the buttons on my headphones. The most frustrating part of buying Kobo audiobooks is that I can only listen to the audiobooks using the Kobo app. If I could actually download the books into an app that is functional, I would consider keeping my subscription.

I bought extra audiobooks because the 1 credit a month was quite enough. I had 2 left over but it won't let me use them. I talked with support and they seemed to have fixed it. Fast forward to the next time I want to use a credit and same problem appears. The difference is this time support just kept telling me I didn't have any credits even with me showing them screen shots of the 2 audio credits I still had. Needless to say don't waste your time or money.
