Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t Sync Across Devices
I love this app because I love supporting my local bookstore. However, I listen to my audiobooks on different devices throughout the day. Sometimes I’m on my phone and other times I’m on my iPad. Unfortunately, the current version of this app doesn’t update from my previous place on one device when I switch to the other. Or if it has this capability, I cannot find where to turn it on.
I still would recommend this app and company over others, purely to support local bookstores.

Hi kbwm, I wanted to follow up with you--the app now syncs across your iOS devices as of version 4.0.0. Enjoy!
The best app!
As an indie bookseller and book lover this app is everything. I use it everyday to listen to books and to show customers how easy it is to use. It’s so amazing that this company helps indie bookstores!!!!
The only thing I wish I could do is organize my books into folders I can create. Mostly because I’m a supper OCD organizer. There may be a way to actually do that, that I just don’t know about. But that doesn’t hinder my love for the app at all! Seriously, best app ever!!!! Much love!!! <3

Thanks for your kind words! Custom folders are in the works... stay tuned!
Close to Converting Completely
I love this app for what it offers booksellers and book lovers. When I’ve been pining for a book but have commutes to worry about, this app has my back. Fantastic platform, I recommend it to all of my friends and family, and customers who are afraid they don’t have time to read!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
