Tech Support?

Most Recent Update: 24 Jan 2018
*******************************************

There are a lot of opportunities to acquire summaries of fiction and non-fiction audiobooks and I’ve tried a good many of the vendors.

They are (IMHO) generally fairly similar, varying only: in their library - in this case better than most; in the utility of the software - easy to use; and in their concerns of the user base - unsurpassed.

The old saw “You get what you pay for” is in this instance an undervaluation... here I’ve gotten more than I expected. I’ve changed my evaluation to 5 stars.

*******************************************
UPDATED REVIEW

*****************************************************************
I initially posted a one star review because I got stuck in a loop and couldn’t access my account. The owner reached out to me and we figured out where the problem(s) started. As is the case with the majority of single engine aircraft accidents, pilot error is the first place to look.

I suggested to them to make a couple of changes on their WEBsite to prevent a similar situation.

Having used just one item from their catalog - successfully - I will change my review to three (3) stars. I will update the review at the end of my trial. Stay tuned. 😊

*****************************************************************
FIRST REVIEW

They have none. Uninstalled. Bye-bye, we gone. Signed: a VERY satisfied long-time Blinkist subscriber.

Disappointment

******** UPDATED REVIEW *********
Instaread Tech Support reached out to me and fortunately fixed my issue with the app freezing up.

Based upon their timely response, I am changing my review to 5 stars. This app is great for catching up with the books I have been interested in without having to commit to buying and reading. (I think of it like the “Cliff Notes” version.) If I really like the book, I am able to purchase it and read the entire thing knowing that I won’t be wasting my time and/or $$$. I recommend this app for anyone with limited time and a desire to stay “current” with their reading.

*************************************

I used to love this app. I’ve had this app for a long time (I purchased a “lifetime” subscription). However, I’ve noticed, over time, the quality of this app was deteriorating to the point of rarely working. It was my go to app when traveling because it allowed me to catch up on new reads. It’s disappointing to see a once great app become useless! I was also shocked to find, when deciding to write a review, that this app automatically defaults to a 5-star glowing review that is pre-written for you. Really?? Shame on you, Instaread!!

Hi, Thanks for updating your review! However, the rating is still showing up as 1-star. Can you please update to 5-star as the review suggests?

Watch out before signing up for a trial

BE AWARE
Im a college student who likes to read. I saw Instaread and wanted to give a try so I signed for a trial. I was always planning that if I liked it i would go for the monthly subscription which is around $9. Well, it turns out that it charged me $90 dollars for a year round subscription that I didn’t sign for, and plus that, they don’t even have a customer service where I can try to fix this problem. I cancelled the subscription and it didn’t refund the money. It said: your subscription will still valid for 1 year. I haven’t see any similar online scams recently. They don’t refund, they don’t even switch from yearly to monthly. Once you paid, the money is gone. I needed that money for a college textbook.
So BE AWARE
