Customer Reviews

Please Fix Audiobook Bug

I really like what this app is trying to do. I'm testing whether to use this app to listen to church audio books. But, after I come back to listen, about half the time it loses my place and either skips to the beginning or end of the clip/chapter I am listening to. This is extremely frustrating having to find out where I left off in the audio. Hope this is fixed soon. Don't know that I have the patience otherwise to continue trying find out where I left off with the audiobook.

Needs Improvement

I want to like this app, but in my view a feature is still needed: the ability to completely delete a book. Sometimes a book is read but it is disliked, but after "removing" it, it still hangs around as an image in one's library because it remains in the Cloud. Annoying! I would suggest that the app should try to mimic the interface and functionality of iBooks.

Bring back quotes to text

The big thing I liked about this app was quotes to text not image. But that is gone. Other then that I like the app.
