I use the app A LOT. I enjoy it. I especially like the end of chapter snooze option (it works better than hoopla or Libby). I think the selection is wonderful. I almost exclusively use it to listen to audiobooks. I would love to be able to follow readers (Cindy Kay has a voice like a warm sweater). Another quip. I cannot unsubscribe/ pause subscription. It makes you do it on the website, but I kept getting pushed back to the app on my pixel. Feel trapped.

I get "Audio Playback Error" AT LEAST 10 times a day, which is absolutely ridiculous. I clear the cache regularly as suggested by customer service, but it's still happening all the time. And sometimes, the app will randomly kick me back several hours in the book and I have to try to find where I had been prior to the snag. At this point, I'm wondering if the app is more trouble than it's worth and I should find a different one for my audiobook needs.

Works fine...can be improved. Highlighter works sporadically and sometimes the icon doesn't appear at all if a word is highlighted. The page sometimes jumps a sentence ahead when advancing to the next page. It's no Kindle, but for the purposes of simple straightforward reading, it is good. 11-26-22 update. Content deteriorating. More audio and fewer reading books. The app has had some improvements in highlight options and it reads more smoothly as you turn the pages.
