Ratings and Reviews
App Needs Major Improvements
This app is not user friendly and has several issues. When you download a book on your device the audiobook and listen to a book, the app sometimes asks you download again even though you downloaded already. At times, the list of chapters disappears. The list of downloaded books does not return to the last book you were listening to either. When the app was refreshed, I had to re-download all of the books again and refresh my list, then re-download the books on my device again. When you search for a book or author you will get items not searched for and have no relationship to the search. When you sort, there is no option to identify books already listened to and the sort and list sometimes does not have all of my books or does not refresh with new purchases.
Can’t stream audio?
I use this app merely because there are certain books I can only listen to the audio from it.
But it desperately needs a major overhaul. You can’t even stream audio!!! You need to download the entire book to your phone! With short books this may be fine, but particularly a Christian audio app should allow streaming because of the sheer length of Christian literature. If you want to listen to, say an audio Bible, good luck... either it’ll be too much data for your phone, or the app will be too glitchy to actually download it all, and chapters will merely skip the areas that the app forgot to download.
It seems that once upon a time this app worked much better. I’m not sure what happened, but it would seem that Christianaudio’s financial stability should make it a high priority.
Worst app ever
I am s techie, own and have used many apps on several platforms, and this the worst, most poorly written app I have ever used. I have hundreds of audiobooks I have purchased from ChristianAudio over the past 10 years and I have no problem with the quality of the audio books. It is the app itself that infuriates me. It just functions very poorly. And inconsistently. Today, of my hundreds of books that I have purchased I only -at this - only have access to about 20 books, and not the one I was looking for. What good is it if I can’t find the books I PAID FOR!!
Additionally, I get error messages about on regular, and all to often basis.
I have a long and forgiving fuse with ChristianAudio, but I am about done. Although I listen to audio books every day on the way to work, it is really not worth the fight and aggrivation.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. With larger libraries it may take a moment for it to load. Update to the most recent release and click "refresh" at the bottom of the library and there should be a progress bar that shows your library loading. If that doesn’t fix it, can you write into firstname.lastname@example.org to help us fix it for you.
