Please Fix Bugs in Most Recent Update

I have never left a review for an app before now. First, thank you for all of the aid your organization gives to those of us who suffer from learning disabilities. Your app truly helps. That being said, the most recent update has made the app very difficult to use. Every time I download a book that should take mere MBs, the app storage increases by 15 to 20 GB. If I delete the book, the storage is still filled up so I end up having to delete the entire app and start over to download a new book. This was never an issue until the most recent update. Also, the app is glitching. It freezes or has a delayed response when I interact with the user interface. Another issue that I am now experiencing is that the audio playback stops every few minutes, and sometimes the app will even log me out mid-reading. I now have to re-log in on average three times for every hour of listening. Please fix the bugs! The app worked perfectly before. I will definitely change the rating to 5-star if the glitches are fixed!

Thank you for the wonderful service!

Thank you to everyone that has put together Learning Ally. Never apologize for anything (dyslexia/mass email) to anyone ungrateful for the thoughtful gesture. This is really helping me get through school. I only have 2 problems with it though.

1. Playback stops every 5 pages (about)

2. The readers sometimes pronounce character names differently and it’s distracting. I think if multiple people are going to read they should agree on how to pronounce everything. I’m less than 100 pages into a book I have to read for school and I’m distracted because I’ve had to listen to 4-5 different pronunciations of the same character’s name (this is an essential character too) and sometimes the reader(s) mispronounces other common words.

Let's see if I can write this in the 20 seconds before my book pauses.

I've used Learning Ally for a long time, since the old app was still around. I've seen it come a long way since then. But there's a few major things you guys still need to fix. It's hard to read a book when every time your screen locks or you leave the app the book stops. There's a setting for that now, but when you switch the switch nothing really changes. The table of contents for books is unnavigable by VoiceOver. When you turn your phone, the book sometimes moves to a random place. When you change the font and background colors it doesn't do That's new on the new app. Also, for works of fiction, it would be easier I think to ask your narrators not to do voices. Most of them are very bad at it. For language textbooks, don't let people read it unless they speak the language.
