Bait and switch!

I subscribed to this service after seeing an instagram add that said “it’s like Netflix for audiobooks”. After Audible restricted my returns (and I have to call to return them, which is lame) on audiobooks because I often find books boring and want to return them and find something else, I was on the hunt for something new. I subscribed to a month of Hibooks. The first couple of weeks were great. I tried several books until I found one I liked. After finishing one book, I searched for a new book. Every single book I wanted to listen to had a countdown clock saying I had to wait 29 days to listen to that book. My membership renewed in less than a week. I searched on twitter to see if others had a similar issue. Turns out lots of other people had the same problem but had different countdown clocks. I reached out to hibooks and was told they are rotating their library and those books would not be available until a later day. What makes no sense is why everyone has a different countdown clock. It feels like I got throttled and they don’t actually have unlimited selections of books. It is still a good deal, I think I started 5 or so books until I got “throttled”. If that doesn’t bother you, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this subscription! It bothered me, so I canceled my subscription.

Great idea - could use some work

***UPDATE***
App will not let me listen to unlimited books anymore?! It keeps saying my next audiobook is available in 29 days but just a few hours ago it said 27 days? Since when is this not UNLIMITED?! That is the whole premise of the app.. now I’m really really disappointed because I love listening to books at work but audible was too expensive.. now this feels scammy :( if they change the limitations you must inform customers.. there was no communication now I don’t want to pay for this service :(

I really love this app and concept. I have audible but it’s so expensive to buy books on it constantly so I loved this idea since it’s so cheap and unlimited! Love love love the concept but I wish there was a way to see your total progress jn the book.. instead you can only see where you are in that chapter. Not total time listened or total left in entire book. Sometimes it misses my place too and I end up listening to the same thing a couple times. I don’t think they have a book mark feature. I also wish it had more info about the book like how audible has a list of the characters and what not. Also, the chapters are kind of choppy in some books. Definitely recommend though.. I think it’s pretty new so for such a cheap subscription I’m willing to tolerate for now :)

Wish i could give less than 1

I only discovered hibooks a couple of months ago and i was in love with it. Ive read more books in that 2 months than I did most of last year. Advertised as the Netflix of audiobooks, Most of the books i wanted were here so this app was amazing to me and a very good value!
With ZERO warning to any of their customers, mostof the popular books became unavailable for a month or so. I received a timer on all the books i wanted and couldnt download any for x amount of days. B\c there was no warning, i emailed customer service to find out what was wrong with my app. They acted like this was the way it had always been and that there were thousands of books(old books or free domain books) available when “some”(the most popular) books were unavailable. Customer service is a big deal to me. Don't lie to me and then try to talk around the truth.
They were losing money And made a change without any concern for their customers.
I would have paid more for unlimited books, but the way they treated us customers was too much for me. I canceled my subscription. Audible has a much better player (no skips or wrong chapters) and much better customer service and i own the books forever. They also havent lied to me.
