Purchase don't restore
Despite developer reassurance that ‘lingering bugs’ would be fixed by an update, my purchases still don’t restore using the app’s function and having signed in with my appleID. June 2018

I've just reinstalled the app, restored my purchases but am asked to pay for them again (via a pop-up) when I try and play them?! Disappointing, particularly as the UI has visually responded by removing the pricing buttons on the titles for which I've already paid (and as the app's great when all's working.)
Hi there, sorry to hear you are having problems with the app. We will be releasing a new version in the next couple of weeks which should address any lingering bugs. In the meantime, please contact us at email@example.com and we will do our best to help.
Essential update - lost purchases
Have just updated this app as it wouldn’t load in iOS11. Now I can’t play the books I have purchased. Thanks.
Fantastic - best Audiobook app around!
Ask anyone to come up with a list of their top 5 classic British authors, and Roald Dahl has to be on there. His books formed a big part of my childhood, and the same is true of my kids. This audiobook app is FANTASTIC and I can't believe what amazingly talented actors are reading the stories - David Walliams, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and my personal favourite, Miranda Richardson, to name but a few. It's like Christmas come early for my ears! Also very impressed by the high quality sound effects. Some of the books at £4.99 are more expensive than others, but it's nice to see that you can buy cheaper ones too if you only want to spend a couple of ££'s. You can listen to a sample of each book before you buy it to see if you like it (you will!) and it also tells you how long the story lasts, so you know exactly what you're paying for. Right now we're glued to the BFG - all of us, not just the kids. Can't wait to choose the next book! Brilliant!
