Fabulous New Look !!!!!!! Love it!!!!
Beautiful update ! The sleek new presentation feels like a completely new app. Visually appealing and easy to navigate. Kudos to the developers.
Still keeping my previous review comments: "Why pay to listen to books when thousands of FREE classics are available in one app? I enjoy using this app every day. Wide selection and mostly good readers. So many ways to make a selection - by topic, author, date of release, genre, or reader. A must-have for everyone who likes a "good read"."
Recently (July 2017) I had my first difficult with the app. True to the excellence of the app, I received a quick response to my questions and prompt follow up thereafter. With so many other apps no response is ever received. Audiobooks customer support is quick and reliable. My thanks to tech support staff !
The biggest flaw in the app is its inconsistency in keeping ones place in the book. I usually listen on my phone while working out, and if I move to another app while listening to a book it usually loses its place and starts from my original place that day when I return to the app interface. Very annoying to constantly have to search for you place in the Audiobook. Also, the sections should have more divisions like the chapters in the actual book. I usually read the book simultaneously as I listen and have to search extensively in the audio to find coinciding place from the book.
Bucket list books
I've been "reading" many old favorites and some I've always meant to try. Really appreciate this app!
One thing, I wish it could access the library of the previous version so as to combine the two in one app. Or maybe this is already possible some way (other than re-downloading)...?
