  • Not an audiobook solution

    I pay for Audible and was excited to find an option for unlimited audiobooks for the same price. Unfortunately, literally every audiobook I searched for was locked behind a paywall that's double the cost of the basic subscription. What's the point? There are other, much better apps out there.
  • Audiobooks aren’t unlimited play/ catalog isn’t real

    I paid for the audiobooks premium plan. As soon as I paid, most of the bestselling audiobooks that can be viewed before I log in are mysteriously unavailable. Once I log in, all I can see are books without copyright issues. For example, bram stoker is in recent releases. Nuff said. Also I listened to an audiobook every two or three days, admittedly a heavy user. They cut me off despite the fact I was paying for unlimited service. They keep telling me all this is technical. Hmmmm. Follow up: I have an answer. Seems they are limited selection for heavy users. So that good content is to lure new users only. Just FYI.
  • Do not purchase !!!

    Horrific app. Only lets you see very few books and music in feee app mode . When you update you can’t listen to audiobooks or music because it either kicks back to app page or shows errors . Customer service is almost non existent . I say almost because they do reply within reasonable time . However, they say delete then reinstall app after that they send you to frequently asked questions . Highly disappointed . I’m only a customer I’m not a fired worker as someone mention say the poor reviews are from . If they resolve issue I will post an update.
  • Not likely to get a subscription

    So I got a free trial for the basic plan for audiobooks. Most of my trial, this app hasn’t worked and I don’t have anywhere else to listen to audiobooks so basically I’m telling you guys that my whole free trial of this app is wasted. I’m so mad and I don’t think I would get a subscription with these people because they are not legit. I am a blind individual and I do not think I should go through this crap, so here is my rating for you thanks for the free trial and for letting me read books unfinished. What a crappy app
  • BEWARE!!! Audiobooks NOT available that were once there

    The “search” function is a joke! It works occasionally but you have to search title, author and at times I searched another book by same author so I could use “authors name” hyperlink etc... Worse yet...I noticed titles were completely missing now. Whole series and now my favorite authors show they now have no books available. Yet I find them in my saved lists. If I had not done that I might have thought I was mistaken. But when I logged out of my account suddenly the search function works, the hyperlinks work and all the books are easily found! I will be contacting customer service tomorrow because I cannot think of one good reason for this to happen. If this is the type of scams you run I want all my money back for such unethical behavior.
  • App is terrible - idea is great

    I love the product and have the “premium” with the bundled media. The app, however, is TERRIBLE. There are lots of annoying bugs and design flaws, but the worst is that the search function simply doesn’t work. A typical search works like this: I search for a title. It doesn’t show up. I search for the author’s last name. Maybe 2 books show up. I search for the author’s full name and 4 books show up, but not the one I’m looking for. So I open one of the 4 that did show up and click on the author’s name. 5 titles show up, which includes the title I’m looking for. The next day I run the same search and all 5 titles show up when I search the last name. I have reinstalled the app several times and the problem persists. Not getting reliable results from searches is no different than Playster simply turning off my “premium” package. I’m simply not getting what I pay for. It is getting so frustrating that I’m thinking about terminating my subscription. PLEASE fix this!!!
  • Terrible Service and Selection For a Premium Price

    By AdamGrimey
    I will be canceling since they don’t seem to care about providing a good app, good selection of titles (even with premium membership), or having anything but lip service customer care. They just apologize for any inconvenience and make vague claims that things might get resolved sometime.
  • It’s okay

    The audio portion to me is awesome, but the book portion is another story. I’ve tried to contact them to get certain authors, but no luck. They have certain books in a series and doesn’t provide the rest.
  • Potential here but needs work

    By cgmummy
    Interface is clucky. Gigantic cover shot and tiny controls. Controls need to be larger and more intuitive. Speaking speed resets Everytime, needs to maintain preferred settings. Issues with Bluetooth and audio out. Have to close app, disconnect, start book, reconnect, then press play for it to register output. Search and library a little fussy and disorganized. Clean up the interface and bugs and the idea gets you to a four or five star.
  • Worse app ever!

    By Run i.e. Meys5556
    This app has worked for me occasionally, but mostly I experience nothing but trouble, including being asked to sign in, not being able to connect to the server, to not getting the listen button on books. It's been a horrible experience!! My tickets are constantly being "escalated" but never solved! This is very disappointing. I like what they are trying to do here, but I could never recommend this app to anyone, in fact I would discourage anyone from it. There is absolutely no way they should be charging money for this service until they have a completely functioning app for it. I am hoping spill someone will launch a similar idea, with a top notch app to drive it! Until then, I'm going back to Audible, expensive but reliable.
