Could be wonderful but....
Ok the app is really great idea, however it's implemented really poorly.
The search for books is quite complicated and could be I'm proved with a simple search bar instead of scrolling through pages based on the first few letters of the authors name or book title.
Then there is the fact that once you find a good book to listen too, every 2 minutes you have to press play as the app shuts down when the iPod enters sleep mode. It's very frustrating!
The lack of ff or rw features is also pretty upsetting as it means the listener is forced to sit through an entire section of a book or else it'll start all over again. Please fix these issues and you'll have a wonderful app!!! Otherwise it really isn't worth the $0.99 right now...
Not a good app. No real controls. Can listen to Gutenberg Librivox audio recordings but can't move around, fast forward, repeat, ... Nothing. Just start it and go straight through. Any glitch and you start all over again. Also, no downloading for offline listening.
I got this App so I could research different books I'm contracted to illustrate. Each chapter of a book stops playing after several minutes. Pressing play starts the chapter over from the beginning, only to stop at the same spot. Happens with any chapter I choose. Frustrating and useless App.
