It's okay. I don't like that it doesn't rewind or fast forward only a few seconds, but goes to the next track. Since this is different from both other players I use (Overdrive and Libby), it's a little confusing. On the bright side, RB consistently delivers excellently read books; I would say the best in the business. also, unlike the libraries, their audiobooks are high quality, not ripped from damaged CDs. I can live with the annoyance of track skipping.

It works great. I use the back-30-seconds all the time, sometimes the chapter markers (when I fall asleep while listening). Also nice is the playback speed setting and, most importantly, the ease with which it interfaces with my library. Update: I'm dropping a star because of the frequent need to reload the book I am reading under some conditions I don't understand. Maybe if I change networks or overnight ? I have to force a re-sync to resume reading. My other audio book app doesn't do it.

Summary: App: 4 stars. Browser/service rating: 2 stars. The app is alright, I don't like not being able to see the total length of an audio book when I start it (it's broken into chapters, which is odd). I really don't like how this doesn't translate on to a browser well. I like to not use my phone while at work so I log in on the browser. Unfortunately, it doesn't save reading progress at all so you have to keep track in another way-if you accidentally shut down the window before seeing how far in you are-enjoy the lack of controls for skipping forward and back easily. Also, it doesn't actually track time on the browser so you have to guess how far you were even if you know which chapter you ended on. I do have to say, this app has a lot of books that I can't get anywhere else. This is the only reason I still bother with it.
