Works great


The new app update works great and it’s very easy to use. I would only suggest making the controls bigger for easier in-car operation.

Works fine, three stars for no purchase ability


Three stars because none of Barnes and Noble apps allow purchasing direct within the app, I'm sure there's a reason, but it annoys me.

As far as the app's functionality, I read the reviews saying it didn't work, but it worked fine for me on an iPhone 6S, and iPad Air. I listened to Hornfischer's "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" all the way to Dallas and back.

There was one flaw, for the first 20 minutes the playback stopped at each new track, requiring me to hit play again. It's possible it was something on my phone, or in my audio system connection, as I could find no other mention of it, and it actually went away after a bit and has played flawlessly since.

Worst App Ever


This is just about the worst app I’ve ever used. There is no way to bookmark your book! There is no timer to turn off the book, the app wasn’t letting my phone’s timer turn off the book either. The book isn't organized by chapter number but by tracks, so you have to guess out of 80 tracks where you left off. The reading speeds don’t include a 75% speed that slows down the speech but doesn’t distort the audio. It doesn’t suggest books in the same genre or even by the same author! You can’t buy books within the app! The last book in the series I’m reading is $50!!! But I have to get out of bed and turn on my laptop to give you my money, NO THANKS! I don’t know that B&N is spending their money on but it certainly isn’t on programming or sales capture. Barnes & Nobel, Hire me and I’ll fix your audiobook division.
