Audiobook inaccessible

Really wanted to listen to the audiobook. On my iPhone X I couldn’t find a way to purchase. Bought the interactive course hoping that would give me access but it didn’t. Contacted IFSTA and they said they’d advise the developer. I checked in daily for a few weeks. My Hazmat course has come and gone and still no ability to buy the audiobook. In the mean time, I upgraded to an iPhone 13 but that didn’t help.
Why did they go through the expense of recording an audiobook if you can’t get it? I would buy it outside of the app but don’t see that option either.
Two stars only because of the container identification section.

Developer Response ,

Needs Work

I don’t mind paying the extra money if it unlocks useful training tools. I do wish the audiobook feature was on this app like the essentials of firefighting 7th edition app. I learn so much better by having it read aloud to me instead of just scanning a page. The app does bug out every now and then but if those were fixed and the audio booked added this would be a solid app. Right now it’s kind of useless in my opinion. I feel like I could get better training tools elsewhere for the exam.

Developer Response ,

Hi Pitt#22, We are working on the Audiobook edition for this book as we speak! Please keep a watch for it. As for the bugs, please reach out to support@ifsta.org or 800-654-4055 to ensure we are aware of the specific issues you are running into.

Edit-Hi Pitt#22 The audiobook is now available!

Review Deck Doesn’t Work

Not sure why the review deck doesn’t work for this app when it does for other IFSTA apps. It adds all questions whether you missed them or got them right to the review deck, pointless. It’s a known issue going back to September and still not fixed. I can’t get past page two of the book either. The app is good for exam practice and identifying though and for the most part the questions line up with the pages in the book (few exceptions).

Developer Response ,

Hi WA Fire, thank you for the feedback. We would like to work with you to troubleshoot the issues you are experiencing. Please contact us at support@ifsta.org so one of our team members can assist.
