Had to do the upgrade, but there wasn't an upgrade button so I had to uninstall and re-download. Now it won't let me log into my account. I tried a password reset even and it won't send the email code to get back in. Nothing works. It just says try again later. Edited my review: I finally got the reset email and was able to get back into my account. I love this app and how easy it is to read/listen to books. I've read more this year because of this app than the last 10 years combined.

"Unlimited listening" as long as you don't have anything specific you'd like to listen to. As soon as my free trial was up every single title I had saved was suddenly unavailable until the next month's subscription payment. Then I was able to listen to 2.5 titles. That's right!! Right in the middle of the story it was suddenly unavailable until next month. NOT WORTH IT. Now I can't even cancel or I lose the rest of my payment.

Last year I gave 5 stars. Used to be the best app out there. It has everything. Books, audiobooks, magazines, podcasts. They tell you there's no limit, but that's not true. Depending on how much you are reading, they will either show titles as Available Soon (your next billing cycle) or flat out hide it. It's happened to me multiple times. I have a long commute and love audiobooks. I was cut off from my series on the 4th...their explanation is smoke and mirrors.
