This app literally saves my life every day...

I work alone, 18 hours a day every day. The fact that I can continuously get through audiobooks each day was financially killing me when I was buying them on Apple Books sometimes for £15 per book! I googled different audiobook apps and downloaded each one and not one comes close to this app. I love it 🥰 there is a limit it cuts off towards the end of a month but I do get a lot of books out of it so I can’t complain.
It sometimes freezes and I have to restart but that again isn’t too much of an issue. One thing I would say is it would be nice to be able to tap a section up that gives you a list of the chapters so you can jump to and from any you want to skip or hear again rather that having to manually skip the chapters. The genre searches I found a bit lacking.. type in romance and you get a couple of audiobooks come up under each category which put me off at first but then as I’ve got into it after I finish a book it shows me other similar ones I can download; these very rarely are in the genre lists which could put new customers off. Other than that.. I LOVE IT any newbies keep searching and listening you’ll be shocked with what pops up eventually

I subscribed because I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and wanted a borrowing service rather than an offering like audible. However this isn’t truly unlimited, in this case unlimited just means that there is always something you can listen to not that you can always listen to anything in the library whenever you want to, and there is no indication of what your monthly limit is or when you are going to hit it, so having listened to the first few books in a series I suddenly couldn’t listen to any more until the next billing period started, so clearly some audiobooks are limited. This alone might not have been an issue if it was clear what the monthly limit was and which audiobooks counted towards this limit, but there is no indication until you try to listen to something to be faced with “available soon” banners on most books

The search function is dismal, I often have to try 2 or 3 different search terms to find what I want, and have often resorted to finding something else written by the same author to click through to their author page to then find what I want. Series aren’t linked in any way either so if you have finished one book you have to go through the dismal search function again to find the next book in the series.

It’s also disappointing that it is not compatible with CarPlay as I listen to books when driving, there is an option to link to waze, but again this functionality didn’t work on the CarPlay version of the waze app either.

Love this app! Much better value than Audible. Im disabled and listen to two or three books a week, which would cost a small fortune on Audible. Good range of books and customer service has been exceptional. A couple of issues though, the main one being the suggested books... read book which I hated and gave it a one star review, but recommended books is almost exclusively books by the same author and I can’t remove them! The other thing is that books I’ve saved offline are no longer available and I can’t remove them from my offline list so get an annoying pop up every time I log in. Small gripes as on the whole I think it’s a great app and much better than competitors.
