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
Excellent way to get free audiobooks
We listen to audiobooks on long journies in the car. I usually get CDs from the library but thought I'd give this a go. The longer books do take a while to download (on to my ipod) and I do this at home with a decent wifi speed, but only a few minutes. We then play them via bluetooth in the car. The pause function doesn't work well, we just stop the book if we want to pause it and it has so far restarted at the correct place. Good audio quality.
Decide which book you want via a different site that has more detail on them then just download it from this site if it's there.
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.
I've been using the app on and off for over a year and it has been a good app for accessing my local libraries audiobooks. However the app loses your place every time you pause which is completely frustrating. It also crashes when I try to skip forwards or back 30 seconds.
If they could fix those things it would be a great app!!
