Love the idea but it crashes a lot and doesn't save bookmarks. The audiobook selection could be better and they don't update it very often. It's a good app but still needs some work. PLEASE ADD MORE VARIETY OF AUDIOBOOKS FROM MODERN AUTHORS!! Will update this review when the app works without crashing, freezing my phone or forgetting my bookmarks.
Great concept. Sloppy execution. The playback sometimes stops randomly, when I pause it, it takes 4-5 seconds for it to actually stop. I have to re-sign in a lot. Some of my saved books don't show up even if I remove them then download again. There's a few more bugs that I can't think of on the top of my head. But the point is that if I'm paying $15/month for something, it better work, and this one doesn't always do that.
It would be a great app if it ever worked, but it doesn't. Glitches, crashes constantly, lose my place in books, and now today it booted me out and wont let me log back in, on the app or the website. Its infuriating. Audible's app and website are so far superior to Playster that they should be embarrassed to ask for your money because until they fix thier technical issues they arent providing the service they advertise. Or any service at all at the moment.
If I could give it less than one star I would. It crashed about a month ago and won't let me sign in. It keeps telling me my login info is incorrect. I have done 2 password resets and 8 uninstall reinstalls and contacted customer service I don't know how many times and it still doesn't work. Unless you are planning to listen via computer don't bother with Playster or you will be paying for something you can't use.
Playster, I was listening to 11.22.63 by Stephen King during my trial. After about five minutes it stopped and told me I needed to upgrade to continue. I upgraded and now that audiobook is somehow not available in the library? I need my money refunded because I did not get what I paid for. Bait and switch? I did call customer service and they did issue a refund. Back to audible!
This app is SO FRUSTRATING. It could be great, and is a much better deal than audible, but it is SO GLITCHY that it makes paying for audible worth it to avoid frustration. Not being able to delete books, books not playing when they should be available (they've been downloaded over Wi-Fi), difficulty downloading books, and inconsistent searching are a few of my biggest complaints. Please fix the app... it could be great.
