Nichts für Hörbücher

Habe mir die App geladen, weil ich mir ein Hörbuch bei Thalia gekauft habe. Leider ist die App völlig unbrauchbar, da nicht gespeichert wird an welcher Stelle man aufgehört hat zu hören. Stattdessen wird irgendein vorheriges Kapitel mit Lesezeichen angezeigt und man verbringt den kompletten Weg damit herauszufinden an welcher Stelle man war. Sehr frustrierend.

Developer Response ,

Hallo prirelmo,

es tut uns leid, dass die tolino App nicht deine Erwartungen erfülllt. Bitte führe zunächst eine Neuinstallation der App durch und versuch anschließend erneut das Hörbuch herunterzuladen. Achte bitte darauf, dass das Hörbuch vollständig heruntergeladen wurden, um eine unterbrechungsfreie Wiedergabe zu erhalten.

Solltest du weitere Fragen haben, teile uns bitte mit welches Gerät und welche iOS Version du verwendest. Diese Infos kannst du am Besten an senden.
