Very poor app

Bad, small, unforgiving controls, not very helpful for a blind person. Incomplete series of books (many trilogies are missing the first part, making it all useless) and a lot of the readers are not native English speakers, this means words are mispronounced and sometimes it is actually impossible to understand what they are trying to read. No editing leads to repeated lines, stumbling by the readers and sometimes such ridiculous things as laughing after a mistake or parts of a page left out entirely.

Very poor app, well below the standards of other free audio book readers available. I don’t understand how a foundation can produce such a flawed product.

Book link review :)

Really good and easy to use accessible with voice over. Siri will open the app but she won’t start the audio that you would like to listen to.
