What's New in Version 2.24.1
This update fixes a bug in our previous release that caused a small number of users to be signed out of their app.
I loved this app for many years and have sung it's praises to all my friends. One of the best features this app had was that as I was talking to someone about a particular book I had read or had listened to I could use one of my own credits to give to that person the book I had enjoyed. This is no longer the case, you can no longer gift books to friends and family. Don't let them fool you by saying their new "family feature" will allow you to do so. It's a out right lie. You have to be linked in your accounts and you can only give them "ONE" book ONCE for a limited period of time.
Gift giving was a awesome feature. I always hated shopping for my brother, this feature made it so easy. I would give him 2-3 books on major holidays and his birthday. Now I can't even do that.
Today I will be cancelling my account and I have been encouraging all my friends and family to do the same. DO NOT buy this app or Subscribe to their serves.
Below is my review from 3 years ago.
"i do a ton of driving everyday and listening audio books on this app makes the miles just melt away. It's less expensive and less cumbersome than buying CDs at a book store. I highly recommend this app. Thanks for playing the commercial on Howard Stern!"
Please change the rewind time
My iPhone podcast app uses a 15 second rewind/backup tab. I have a book app on my phone that does the same. It's easy enough to press the rewind twice if I actually want to go back a full 30 seconds but most of the time I only want to go back a few seconds. It is so annoying to be stuck with a 30 second minimum rewind function and then have to relisten for 15 or 20 seconds to get to the point where I really want to be. I can't imagine anyone preferring a full 30 second rewind/back up feature if they have ever used a 15 second feature on another app.
I do like the other features of this app.
Once the update was made on my iPhone I could not listen to my current open book that was downloaded. It seemed to think the book was not downloaded. When I tried to open the book it went into some sort of endless process that could not stop unless you killed the app.
I had to redownload the book even though I already had a version that I could not access on my phone. It then resumed the book in the wrong place. Finally it was necessary for me to delete the old download that the app would no longer let me access.
