Good enough, but could use work
Ok app, great service. Have only listened to one book so far but it was one of the 28 hour books in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King so I think I gave it a fair shot. I’d prefer if it allowed you to use chapter selections instead of choosing by track which just wasn’t the same since they aren’t labeled to give you an idea of what part of the book each track covers. Also the scrolling could use some work - it won’t allow you to simply drag to a different part. If I lost my place (used the book to help me fall asleep some nights) I’d have a hard time finding it again the next day - I’d screenshot the time I started and I’d then have to find the track that was closest then skip forward or backward in 30 second increments. There has to be a better way. But overall I like the app and they have a large selection of books. There hasn’t been a single book I’ve searched for that wasn’t available. Although the search function is also lacking. I don’t think it can find books through a partial title search. I tried searching for “Stephen king dark tower” and it gave me an error. Tried searching for “Stephen king song of” and got an error. He’s written so many books that simply scrolling through a search just for his name wasn’t finding the specific one I wanted. Finally searched for “dark tower vi” and found it. Maybe the coders don’t actually use the app, I don’t know, but I’m sure it would be better if they did.
Not ready for primetime, at least on my iphone 7 running 12.4.1. The basic problem is the thing is always looking for a network connection before it wants to play, even if you’ve downloaded the book to your device. Very often if you want to start listening when you don’t have a connection (and lots of us live in rural areas where the network goes in and out depending on where you are) the app just refuses to open, sticking on a spinning logo. Further, once it does open, and the books is playing, it will shut down again regularly if it goes through an area with no connection - again, this is trying to play books that you have downloaded to your phone specifically to get around the problem of spotty networks. Finally, when you’re back up and running, it will give you a dialog showing a choice between two saved bookmarks and will ask you which one of these you want to start playing from - usually neither of these bookmarks are within 10 minutes of where you actually stopped listening.
I contacted the company once to see if I was doing anything wrong, and the nice young lady somewhat sheepishly acknowledged that the problems I outlined did indeed exist. There’s been at least one update since then, but it hasn’t got any better. It’s a shame, because I really want there to be a solid competitor to Audible, but Audiobooks dot com books can only be played on this app, and this app is really quite poor.

Good App and straight forward business model
I recently switched back to Audiobooks from another similar service/app. The other one was cheaper, but it turns out you get what you pay for. Other service randomly denied the books I was right in the middle of and took a few days to fix the issue that came with an update. The other part that really drove me away was I had banked up a few credits, as I listen to about 1 book in a little over a month, I had the service stop charging me so I could catch up. They cut off my whole service in the process. I had to keep my service charging me to finish the book I was in the middle of and then leave a credit behind when I left their service. Audiobooks has never cut me off mid book. Their business model views credits you’ve purchased as yours and honors their use regardless of whether you commit to remaining a customer. I will gladly pay the extra few dollars a month for that level of service to finish the series I’m halfway through, The Sword of Truth (I’m up to Chainfire now).
