Ratings and Reviews
Great App. I give it five stars for everything today contains in the execution which is well done.
In terms of improvement, one thing I would love to see is better controls for the audio player. It would be nice to be able to skip backward or forward in 15 seconds or 30 second increments.
Another improvement, I would love to be able to listen to the audiobook of Messiah. Then there are a few other books that sound like they are read by a computer generated voice instead of buying a real human being. If it would be possible to get audio book quality recordings of those books, that would be excellent!
Appreciate access to all the publications
I’m so happy to have discovered this app with easily transportable publications.
One issue I have is with the audio. I like the ability to listen and read at the same time but it could use some improvements. I would like to be able to move forward and back within a chapter without having to start the chapter over again. Also, it would be great to be able to keep my place. If it has been several days since my last session, I can’t always remember what chapter I was listening to. It could use some modernization of narrators and music. The music and introduction to the chapters sounds like it comes from the 1930s and makes me feel talked down to. No music would be fine and a respectful, conversational tone of voice for the introduction to chapters would help. The main narrator mispronounces words - such as pronouncing the silent 2nd a in pharaoh as a long a. When it’s a word that is used over and over again, it makes the listener cringe. I’m sure this would be a huge undertaking to make these changes so let me say again, I really do appreciate your making an app with these publications.
Great, but could use a couple improvements.
Overall it’s a pretty good App! But after only a few minutes if use I thought of some things that would make it so much better!
First, would be continuous scrolling. I’m sure that this may not suite everyone, but at least having the option to choose between continuous scrolling and page-by-page scrolling would keep everyone happy.
Second, would be the ability to speed up the playback of the audio books. The reading is quite slow, which is good for some people, however, I think the reading is slow enough that speeding up to at least 2x speed would would still be easy to keep up with. If an option to speed up playback were added, having a few different speed options (1.25x, 1.5x, 2x, 2.5x, maybe even 3x for the brave) would be ideal.
Third, would be some kind of predictive search function. Kind of like how google will say, “did you mean...” This would be useful for times when you can’t quite remember the exact wording of a quote, but know the general idea. I realize that this idea would likely be quite difficult to implement, but it would be an amazing feature.
Maybe some of these options are already somewhere in settings, but I have not been able to find them yet. So, if they are there, maybe make them easier to find.
Thanks for the good work so far! This app definitely beats the old CDs. Having the entire searchable library in my pocket is very handy!
