Changed my listening life!

I like the app, it works perfectly for me. However, I only use it for self-help books. I like to listen to them in the gym, in the car, on my bike. They really put the content in my mind. I used Hibooks to listen to it during my commute. Like that I could read the book when I'm at home and listen to it in the car / walking. Took me about a week (9 days) to finish 1200 pages like that. The choice of books is enormous, varied and mostly well read by household names. They have been my companions while waiting for delayed planes. When running I increase the speed of the reading, whilst driving I slow it back to normal speed. I've used the sleep timer on it too, it's handy more for ensuring you stop at end of chapters as I wouldn't want to fall asleep and miss part of the book! The price is next. It's amazingly cheap, end of story... No really, the pricing is so low, that I don't even know how they make money. I’ve got young kids who absolutely love audio books and Hibooks has a truly incredible collection as well as an amazing range for adults. There’s always a good offer or discounts so you can easily grow your library without spending much extra beyond your yearly sub rate.

Hibooks has changed my listening life as you can listen to a book when doing 101 things!

So well done, and keep the books coming!

Hi, Gabby! Our team did a little happy dance when we saw your comment. We blasted "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang and grooved when we learned how much joy our service brings you. We're so glad we can help bring some color to long drives or some fierce workouts, and love hearing that hibooks is music to you and your family's ears (well, not really music, as we are an audiobook app, but you get the picture). Please let us know if there's any feedback you have to further improve our service; we'd love to hear more from you! Take care. :)

Definitely bait and switch

I have been with Audible for six years and loved them. However when I read that this was $5 cheaper a month and it was all the books I wanted to listen to in a month I took a chance. I’ve been with hibooks for five months now and this is the first month where the books I’m wanting to read cost more money. Actually what they cost is coins that I have to buy open the book to be able to read it. I got on this morning to write this review with complete intentions of putting “bait and switch” as my title for my review and someone had already beaten me to it so obviously I’m not the only one feeling this way. I have thoroughly enjoyed the books that I’ve read but high books doesn’t have near the selection that Audible has. I will be switching back to Audible and canceling my subscription at the end of this month. The three books I wanted to read cost extra money and of course they did it at the first of the month when my month subscription has just begun. Grrr!

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 :)
