Overall great, but room for enhancement
Overall a great app, which I would recommend. However, there are a minor few points of improvement which could be made. There was a bit of awkwardness in the transition between previewing and purchasing a title - I had a bit of trouble finding the screen to play the entire book after confirming a purchase. There is also an intermittent issue after pausing - sometimes pressing the play icon from the locked screen does not resume playing, and it is necessary to unlock my phone and open the app to get things going. This may be a device issue, and not necessarily app-related. One helpful item (which may exist and I was not able to find) would be a table of contents, or other means of tracking progress within the book. If this feature does already exist, it was not easily discoverable.
The Perfect App
I am a college student who, as one could imagine, has no time or spare energy to read books for fun. I just drove 16 hours home and was able to make it the whole way without stopping thanks to this app. I became so engrossed in the book (Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie Kinsella) that I never even thought about falling asleep. The app never failed when I got into zones with no reception, so it was uninterrupted listening! I've done the same drive before with only music and I ended up having to stop since I couldn't stay awake. So for any long drive or short commute this is the perfect app! Also, for any college students who love to read, but after a long day of reading textbooks just can't do it, this is a great way to still get absorbed into a book without the extra brain effort of reading.
Love this app and this book
I just got this app and I just ordered my first audio book The Shack. Not only am I loving the story I'm also so happy to be able to get back into "reading". I recently purchased a farm and have so many chores it's awesome putting my headphones on and actually enjoying chores more. I also play it in the car on my commute to work. With a few jobs and a farm finding the time to read was next to impossible.
I keep collecting books with every intention on reading them and then don't even have a minute to myself with all of the work in my day. This allows me to actually have some "me" time. I also really like that if the book is downloaded it doesn't use any of my data!
