I fell in love and then you left

I’ve had this app for a several months and if I had rated it within the first few weeks it would definitely have received 5 stars from me. I was thrilled to find an alternative to the expensive Audible and having unlimited access to all the books I wanted was like heaven. I found almost every book on my Audible wishlist, many of them brand new publications. A couple of months ago all of that changed. Most of the books I search for now are not available, and definitely not anything recent. Ive had to start listening to books that are 10 or more years old. The most annoying thing is finding a book I’m interested in and seeing some weird countdown clock on it telling me I have 19, 21, or 27 more days before it’s available. That never happened until just recently. My understanding was that there were no restrictions on how many books you could listen to. I would be willing to pay a little more to have unlimited access and the books I really want. If you’re content to read older books written by C list authors this is a good deal because the price is great. I’m very disappointed that this isn’t what it once was and I’ve got to decide it I even want to continue my subscription.

Great idea - could use some work

***UPDATE***
App will not let me listen to unlimited books anymore?! It keeps saying my next audiobook is available in 29 days but just a few hours ago it said 27 days? Since when is this not UNLIMITED?! That is the whole premise of the app.. now I’m really really disappointed because I love listening to books at work but audible was too expensive.. now this feels scammy :( if they change the limitations you must inform customers.. there was no communication now I don’t want to pay for this service :(

I really love this app and concept. I have audible but it’s so expensive to buy books on it constantly so I loved this idea since it’s so cheap and unlimited! Love love love the concept but I wish there was a way to see your total progress jn the book.. instead you can only see where you are in that chapter. Not total time listened or total left in entire book. Sometimes it misses my place too and I end up listening to the same thing a couple times. I don’t think they have a book mark feature. I also wish it had more info about the book like how audible has a list of the characters and what not. Also, the chapters are kind of choppy in some books. Definitely recommend though.. I think it’s pretty new so for such a cheap subscription I’m willing to tolerate for now :)

Not Unlimited, Poor Communication

The Good: Audiobook selection is broad similar to the selection of the now-defunct audiobook coverage of TuneIn. The app’s playback functions are standard and selections play in the background. There is a book discovery tab with categories of books including by release period and genre.

The Bad: The service represents itself as unlimited. For several months, it was. About 2 weeks ago, I began to notice meters for books indicating when I would be able to access them. These meters are not accurate. They may indicate 29 days.. and a few days later indicate 28 days. There is no prior indication of which books would be impacted or what specific number of books can be accessed in a time frame. These meters affect about 40% of the books on my saved list. There are books from major publishing houses that are not impacted as of now.

The Ugly: Hibooks did not communicate any of these changes within the app. The meters popped up with no information or clarification. Now, they have a message on a blog post (still with no direct link or communication within the app) claiming that the problem is temporary. I am less bothered by the meters than by the lack of communication about it.
