Ratings and Reviews
Really great selection; Needs major update!!
I heard about this site and while I love my Audible account and utilize Libby too, I was wanting to get more selections in my month. This app is worth the money and has current NYT Bestsellers available right now to listen to. While I love it and have downloaded a lot; the search categories are clunky and need major updating. When I select my genre (example is "Literature/Fiction"), it takes me to the first of many pages of mixed types of this genre. Books such as, "Big Little Lies, Mr. Mercedes, and War & Peace". There is no sorting to help find authors or specific types of fiction. Instead, you must search through the many pages of what seem like random books to find what you are looking for. It is very frustrating. If you are like me and find a book in the middle of this search you will get kicked back to the start. Ughhh! While overall this app has awesome books and is much more user accessible than audible. I will likely use it only until my downloaded books are finished since searching for books is far to frustrating for me!
Needs Upgrades To Compete
I jumped at the chance to listen to more books for less. I have audible and could easily listen to 3-4 books a month, so this seemed like a good choice. Unfortunately, it’s lacking some key features which make Audible so great. For one, they should add the ability to bookmark your location. I often use the sleep timer and it’s frustrating to have to try and find your place again the next morning. Also, the playback is not very smooth even when I have all of the chapters of a book downloaded. For example, in the most recent book I listened to, each “chapter” was short, and was only a part of each book chapter, so every few minutes I’d have to wait a bit while the music played before the next track would start playing. I’d also have to agree with other reviews which say the selection is not up to par with Audible. I don’t mind that I wouldn’t have the downloads forever like with Audible, but do mind that the selection is limited. Overall, it’s an ok app, but without improvements I’ll probably switch back over to Audible.

Leaves things to be desired.
Love that this is the Netflix of audiobooks.
I was discouraged on my few initial searches when I couldn’t find certain books, Jurassic Park and The Haunting of Hill House, to name a couple. Yet, I was able to find new releases fairly easily.
The labeling of chapters tends to be a bit confusing. The narrators will say chapter 4, but the app will have the section listed as chapter 21. This may be confusing for people who may use this to listen to books for a class or for a book club. It’s also just, annoying.
A feature I wish the app had was a percentage completed. I will know how far I am in a specific chapter, but not the book itself. I won’t know if I’m halfway or near the end.
The app isn’t as appealing as other audiobook apps. I often use Libby, which has a very intuitive and friendly interface, with easy access to the book listing, more by the author or publisher, and chapter index. This just has the pause, rewind, and speed. It’s frustrating.
Lastly, it’s hard to discover on here. There is an onslaught of classics in nose categories/genres, versus the newer books, despite their availability. It’s easier to just know what you’re looking for and hope for the best.
Here’s a question: why is it when I finish an audiobook it remains in my currently listening?
A quick tutorial of the app would be nice to have available in settings. It took a couple of days to understand what the check mark was for.
Can’t wait to enjoy this app more!
