Great selection - at first

Sherply derply

So first of all, I’m very grateful for this app. I use it during work - basically just mowing all day - to listen to audiobooks, and they help make the time fly. I haven’t had any playback errors where I lose my place, but if I do go to something else and come back after a while, the app is likely to have restarted itself. This means I’ll have to go, open up the audiobook again, then it won’t load, so I’ll have to go to the table of contents, restart the chapter, and fast forward to where I was. It’s a tedious process.
A wall that I’ve run in to lately is that most of the books that I want to listen to, best sellers (Red Rising, Sea of Rust, etc.), aren’t available until next month? Some of them I’m fairly sure I’ve looked at before and they’ve been available a day earlier. Now, maybe it’s a subscription thing, where you only get x amount of “premium audiobooks” to listen to each cycle. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve listened to a fair number of works already, and I’ver been very happy with them as I would have had to pay much more normally. However, I find it unfair for the app to boast about its “reading without limits” without making it clear, somewhere, that there are in fact limits.

Was awesome until I found out it’s not truly “unlimited”


I absolutely LOVED this app at first (despite some glitches during audio playback), and I recommended it to basically anyone who’d listen! However, after having listened to five or so audiobooks while driving to and from work over the past month, I have discovered that most audiobooks I would want to listen to are now unavailable to me until August 13. I imagine this was buried somewhere in the terms & conditions (and I am a lawyer, so I should have known better and actually read through them in their entirety!); however, I feel like it is pretty deceptive for the app to advertise “unlimited” access and then limit users’ access. I feel like I need to warn the people to whom I recommended the app. Guess it’s back to podcasts for me! Probably going to cancel my subscription knowing that I can only listen to a handful of the audiobooks I would like to listen to in a given month. I realize this is still a pretty great deal compared to other apps, but I feel cheated due to the promise of “unlimited” books. The whole thing leaves a sour taste in my mouth!
