Ratings and Reviews
Pretty bad app
So I'm listening to a book and there are SO many issues with the playback... first of all it's not that great of a design, not super intuitive but that's not my complaint. My complaint is that while listening to the book it has so many issues playing. Very often it will pause randomly for no reason. Half the time it does not automatically go onto the next track and I have to do it manually. It even SKIPS AROUND and I have to go back so I don't miss parts of the book and I've resorted to watching the bar as I listen to it which defeats the point of having an app for it. The controls are also very delayed and don't work well with iOS because half the time it doesn't respond to control center buttons or is super delayed. At one point it even started playing the book at 3 different points at once! I had to pause it in the app, pause it in control center and one voice was still going so I had to restart the whole app... unbelievably difficult! I suggest using scribd because they are cheaper and have a better app. (Not that this app is setting that high of a bar anyway)
Please update to the latest version of our app.
Need Internet access to work
I got this because I only occasionally need to get an audio book. I didn't want a subscription model. I just downloaded a book at home before leaving for a trip through eastern Oregon and Nevada, where there is scant cell coverage, so no Internet. If I stopped the app for any reason, I needed to have Internet access to get to the library where the info for the book was stored. As a result, I went without my downloaded book for periods of time. The book itself played fine once the library was accessed...no need for Internet. Not particularly useful in a world where Internet coverage isn't universal.
Update: see developer response below. The app is fine... will try it again on another trip. If it works without Internet, it's exactly what I wanted!
Hi Bob, you can always access your library without any data connection. You might see a message that says "The Internet connection appears to be offline" but you can just OK that message and go to your library. As long as you have downloaded the audiobook before going offline which you said you did, it will play your audiobooks just fine without Internet.
There are a couple very basic things this app doesn’t do: When typing to search for a title, etc. there is no cursor/bar to show you where you’re typing. And when you open the app, it defaults to book titles, instead of “my library,” which seems to be the logical screen to default to.
Also it pauses when you go to do things like Google, when there is no reason to pause. And when you search for a book that isn’t available, you just get a plain white screen, as opposed to a message.
The membership is less, but I prefer Audible.
