What's New in Version 3.4
Fixed the bug where some audiobooks would stop playing after a few hours of continuous play.
Other minor bug fixes
Having had this app for over a year I am still struggling to download any audio books. No matter how big the book is or even if there is super quick broadband it downloads a couple of chapters then gets stuck. You have to have your phone 'awake' and plugged in or it drains the battery completely as it takes so long. I have another audiobook app that can run in the background and while the phone is sleeping (e.g overnight) and has no issues with my internet and happily downloads a book in a couple of minutes. So annoying as my other app doesn't have some of the books available on this one. I wouldn't give it any stars if I could. And yes I've updated it when necessary and it makes no difference. Pants. Don't bother with it.
Work in progress?
I enjoy being able to access audiobooks but find this app very frustrating to use, for the following reasons:
The app frequently freezes when returning audiobooks or updating record.
When searching for books, there is no quick way to see cif an audiobook is already out on loan.
If you leave the audiobook mid-chapter your place is lost. The reading restarts at the beginning of the chapter.
When searching the catalogue the < button does not take you back to where you were but to the beginning of the page or section, which means scrolling down the same list repeatedly.
I hope this app is being updated to make it more user-friendly.
The recipes version of this app was flakey but this new update won't work at all. The books appear to download but when you click play nothing happens. Very frustrating!!!!
