Ratings and Reviews
Need Internet access to work
I got this because I only occasionally need to get an audio book. I didn't want a subscription model. I just downloaded a book at home before leaving for a trip through eastern Oregon and Nevada, where there is scant cell coverage, so no Internet. If I stopped the app for any reason, I needed to have Internet access to get to the library where the info for the book was stored. As a result, I went without my downloaded book for periods of time. The book itself played fine once the library was accessed...no need for Internet. Not particularly useful in a world where Internet coverage isn't universal.
Update: see developer response below. The app is fine... will try it again on another trip. If it works without Internet, it's exactly what I wanted!

Hi Bob, you can always access your library without any data connection. You might see a message that says "The Internet connection appears to be offline" but you can just OK that message and go to your library. As long as you have downloaded the audiobook before going offline which you said you did, it will play your audiobooks just fine without Internet.
Pretty bad app
So I'm listening to a book and there are SO many issues with the playback... first of all it's not that great of a design, not super intuitive but that's not my complaint. My complaint is that while listening to the book it has so many issues playing. Very often it will pause randomly for no reason. Half the time it does not automatically go onto the next track and I have to do it manually. It even SKIPS AROUND and I have to go back so I don't miss parts of the book and I've resorted to watching the bar as I listen to it which defeats the point of having an app for it. The controls are also very delayed and don't work well with iOS because half the time it doesn't respond to control center buttons or is super delayed. At one point it even started playing the book at 3 different points at once! I had to pause it in the app, pause it in control center and one voice was still going so I had to restart the whole app... unbelievably difficult! I suggest using scribd because they are cheaper and have a better app. (Not that this app is setting that high of a bar anyway)

Please update to the latest version of our app.
Buggy, doesn’t add purchases to IOS books
The listening app is buggy and stops. Even though book was purchased, it isn’t possible to play it through iBooks or the IOS music app because it doesn’t show up there. So we have a book we purchased but we cannot play it except to use the “Audiobooks Now” app, which only works sometimes. Another issue is that the app will allow a purchase as a guest without setting up an account but then you cannot play your purchase unless you set up the account. This is misleading, why allow one to buy a book as a guest if you cannot use the app to play it? And if we have to use the Audiobooks Now app to play it, could the app not at least work reliably?
Granted I am new to audio books, but I do expect to play a purchased book when I please. I expect a player to work. I expect honesty when buying a book. And I expect to be able to use another player if the Audiobooks Now doesn’t work properly.
