I love the stories on this app, and the format is cool. It is however incredibly glitchy. It often crashes or won't start after being paused. It forgets where you are in the story and starts at the beginning of the chapter or sometimes at the beginning of the story. If it gets better I'll change it to 5 stars. It's worth it still for the creative shows but can be really frustrating.

I love this app with exception that every time I open it, start searching for shows, something always goes wrong and ALL of my subscriptions disappear. I have redo my entire list, and then it disappears yet again. I'm not going to continue my subscription and payments when I have this hassle to deal with each time. If it is fixed I will be a subscriber again. If it's fixed.

Just started using this app and, overall, I really like it. It's fairly easy to navigate and the search function is good. The only complaints I have are lingering expectations I have from other apps. I don't see an option to place a bookmark in the audio version (useful for getting back when using the sleep timer) and there isn't an option to choose SD card storage rather than default phone storage. Otherwise, I'm really happy with this app and the membership thus far.

Hey Joshua! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're a small team here so we read and appreciate all of them.💚 I know the bookmark option is a thing that's been discussed and is on the road map for a future app update. For the SD card, that's a GREAT suggestion and one I'll share with our tech team to explore further. Be well.
