Ratings and Reviews

Worst of a bad bunch.


Thought this would make it easier to get audio books, oh how wrong I was.
Put in an authors name, nothing, put in the book title, nothing, even tried the narrator, nothing!
Just try a general search, the same books keep coming up time and time again.
Contacted my local library (who are fantastic and can't do enough for you) they said it's all down to licenses for the audiobook.
So buck passed on to the authors and their publishers.
So back to ordering the CD version through the library.

Very disappointing


Although in theory I can borrow a book from my local library and listen to it on my iPad, most of the time this has not been possible as the app intermittently logs me out and I need to return to the library for an Internet connection in order to access my book again. Very annoying as the book has downloaded to my iPad and is taking up my limited free space.

Additionally, when I do get back in I have to find my place in the book again as this does not seem to be recorded. Not helpful when the audio tracks have different format to the chapters so there is no obvious correlation.

There doesn't seem to be a 'settings' or 'help' section where I can resolve this so I will not be using the app or service again.

Could be better!


Frustrations one after the other unfortunately. The constant reminder that you need an Internet connection even though all the tracks have been downloaded means you have to have background app refresh turned on. But, even more frustrating is the need for each track to be manually started at the end of the previous track. Very occasionally it goes onto the next track by itself but I have no idea what conditions make it do that. Very annoying!!!
