Ratings and Reviews
In need of a major update.
This app is in need of a major update. When it works it is very, very good, but it unfortunately shuts down all the time. I have to hold my breathe, cross my fingers and say my prayers all while I start an audio book. Please debug it! The main reason I subscribe to Naxos Spoken Word Audio is because of the possibility of listening by way of the app.
Good selection of titles, terrible app
Pros: You can listen to the entire Naxos Spoken Word Catalog
Cons: You can't browse the catalog (must know the specific author or title), you can't favorite books, no captions on the screen, have to wait at least 1 hour to use the app if you forget to log off their website (even if your computer is turned off!)
I hope they improve this app!
Not the best interface
- The streaming needs improvement. I get more streaming errors than I'd like. I listen to Pandora radio for hours which is free and no streaming problems. It costs $150 to listen to the naxos aduiobooks.
- The interface is subpar. When I get a streaming error, it will start over at the beginning of a section. I cannot fast forward within a section, only to another section. I've listened to the beginning of the same section at least three times. I have a free audiobook interface with free books that is much better. I hope they upgrade this interface soon. At this point, I don't plan to auto renew next year.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
