I find the app hard to shop, especially when I'm looking for a specific author or book. It might take several searches to figure out where the book is, even when I own it. Delivery is fine, individual prices are a little high, the reading experience is good. The subscription is lower than Kindle, but of course not as many books are available. I'm happy to support authors through this app rather than Amazon. I'm on a budget too though.

I bought some books via humblebundle that were for this platform, so I decided to try it out. I come from kindle mostly. I *love* the series view, but why aren't the books in order? The flash of the start of the previous chapter when starting the next is also a bit disruptive. I *love* the "restart" button when you go to reread a book, but occasionally it resets my progress in the middle for no known reason. Let me know when those are fixed; I like options.

The app has a major fault, it doesn't reliably stop when you stop listening. So you may come back and instead of taking up where you left off you resume hours further on. Most recently it skipped 11 hours. The book I had hardly started said it was finished. Audio quality is acceptable, but not great.
