The audiobook function has a few bugs... The play bar on the bottom of the app doesn't function on my Samsung Note 10+. Also, having the ability to control the audiobook from my notification menu would be a great feature. The content is great though... Look forward to the improvements 👍 I will revise my rating once these bugs have been fixed.

Hi Stu, we wanted to let you know that we released a version with a completely new and improved audio player (version 9.0). Check out the new features - we'd really appreciate a revised review if you like the update!

The audioplayer of the app doesn't work for me - I always get the error message "The request timed out", other audio apps work fine on my phone. Navigating within the app is also quite slow, seems like they have some kind of performance issue with the backend server. I really like the idea of the app, but with the aforementioned issues, the app is basically unusable.

Must have App for all book lovers. In busy hectic schedule, it is very difficult for me to go through Non Fiction books in details. So I discovered get abstract from my earlier organization and continue to learn from them on regular basis. Titles which I like most I go for buying audiobook or physical book . I truly appreciate get abstract team for the wonderful summaries, audio summary. It increased appetite for reading more in less time
