What's New in Version 6.2.2
This update includes a lot of little bug fixes as well as 1,260 new free books!
I love this app!!!
I had it on my iPhone 2, my iPhone 4 and now my iPhone 6s. If it were the only app on my phone, the cost of my phone would be worth it. So many books and so many genres to choose from! Some readers are better than others, but, hey, they are volunteers. I have about 50 books downloaded to my library which has slowed things down a little so I make sure now to delete the file and just keep the title. I love being able to store books to have on hand when I travel. I love being able to listen to all the science fiction selections and the history and biographies. I love being able to fall asleep to a book after a stressful day. Just download it and enjoy!
Great app but has a bug
I really really like this app and I use it all the time! The only problem is sometimes when I'm listening in the chapter switches the app seems to pause or glitch and it won't play anything for a day or two. Sometimes when I go to open the app and play a book it won't even start it just sits there on play the timer doesn't run, just silence. I've tried deleting all my books and re-downloading the app but that only fixes it for a day or two until the same thing happens again. I've tried using other audiobook apps but I always come back to this one because it has such a great variety of classic books. Please fix the bug!!
UPDATE Great App, New Bug
I love this app and have used it for about 6 months. All the free classic titles and the higher quality purchasable books are wonderful. However, since I updated to this new version it randomly pauses my book and then returns to the beginning of the chapter/section when I hit play. Can you please address this bug for the next version? I love this app but am getting very frustrated with this issue.
UPDATE: For the past few months, I have not been able to play ANY books on this app, even the ones I purchased and have played numerous times before. I tried messing with the settings and then tried deleting and redownloading the app but to no avail. It was a great app, when it worked.
