Great app!

Only thing that could be better: allow for saving of position during audio. Some files are >45min. If I am interrupted during that time, my position is lost and I have to manually search out my place. If you could add a feature to save my place upon exiting that would be great. Thank you!


Thank you for introducing me to Carmelites!

Best Audio Catholic App I have ever found! Except narrator of The Interior Castle, wish the reading was more toned for calm and interior introspect. Other than that narrator, great readings.

Great book source but

Introduction to the Devout Life is not working. Support is not available. I would've given this 5 stars.
