Great idea poor app
The app is great for playing audio books, the built incentives are great, the built in tools are great. Sadly all in theory. It does play audio well, but the app is full of bugs and poor performance. Scrolling through you library is hit and miss, it’s painful to wait for the screen to refresh. Often it just locks.
Then there are the constant crashes. Updates are a bit of a lucky bag, sometimes features have moved or just are not there, and if they are they don’t work anymore. I’ve really tried with this app, hoping never to have to use iTunes for my audio books. Having been through a few releases of this app, I have found that it is best not to use an update, but remove the app and install from new. Using the update feature either wipes out the library or just crashes.
For a company of this size to release such a poor quality app is really not fair on their customers. Audible have a great collection of quality audio books to meet the needs of a diverse and global audience, pity the app can’t simply scroll much less the other issues. Please, please do something about this app. It could be really good.
Good but needs tweaking
SLEEP TIMER back on the audiobook page please why have you hidden it and make it work fully with other audiobook I have in my library after all we pay for this it would be nice to be able to listen to all my audiobook in one place
This app is one of the best apps for playing audiobooks on the App Store I love the bookmark and in app sleep timer button. now the cons
This app is extremely slow and unresponsive it can take seconds from pressing the play button to any action taking place it is the same with all functions in this app i'm running this on an iPhone 5s and a simple thing that as been missed out is you cannot set the size or length of the chapters yourself this makes it hard to find the place you had last been listening to if you're driving or I fall asleep listening to this app
Not Bad-Don't Believe The Nay Sayers
I read negative reviews on this app and wonder why people have the problems they do. I'm not sure, but I simply don't experience the problems they do. My iPad is not the newest, nor is my iPhone, and things work just fine thank you very much.
I've had syncing issues across devices for sure, but it's easily remedied. I am kept signed in, and always am. The issue of stats not being synced across devices is long cured.
Still find things a little clunky, but on the whole, it does what it is meant to do.
As with many things, I suspect the nay Sayers are trying to do too much and getting upset when it doesn't do it.
