Love DB+, app could use some work

Jacione

Let me start by saying this is so much better than the Netflix sub I was thinking about buying. Having such a huge library of gospel knowledge to read or listen to is awesome, and I would recommend this app as well as the DB+ subscription to anyone.

That said, this is a review of the app, not the service it connects to. Overall it’s not bad, but a few things could be streamlined. Specifically, I’ve noticed that the “back” buttons move around a lot: if you are in one of the sections within the discover tab, and you open a book, the book has to be closed from the top right, but then the category has to be closed from the top left. Also, it would be nice if touching the tab you’re already in took you back to the beginning of that tab. Lastly, I would love to see a “now playing” more easily accessible.

Like I said, none of this would stop me from recommending the app to anyone, but there are just a few things that could make using the app feel more natural. Keep up the great work!

LOVE it!!!

I have had absolutely none of the problems with this app that the other reviewers have written about. I find it to be extremely user friendly. That said, not only am I breezing through all the books I've been wanting to read, but my house work is getting done as I listen :-). My family and I now listen to talks on audio by John Bytheway and others when we're in the car and we are all being enriched and uplifted by this spectacular library. "Seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith". Thank you DB!!!

Love this app!

I am really glad that there is an LDS book option for listening to audiobooks. I have had another account for years but most LDS titles are not available there. I love to read but don’t have much time but listening while I do other things makes me feel so productive! I took off one star because it can sometimes be challenging to find the titles you want to listen to. You have to know what you are looking for. I wish it were a little more user friendly but other than that it works great once you start. It always picks up where I left off. I am generally really pleased with it!
