Incredible stories, talented readers, fun delivery method - an amazing service!

Remember when you were a kid and you saved up to subscribe to a magazine or “book club” from the back of the Scholastic book fair flyer? Remember how exciting it was, how magical it felt? That sense that you’d have something new to read soon, and you knew you’d love it and couldn’t wait to get started? That’s Serial Box. The magic of the internet brings you chapter subscriptions to books, all available as audiobook episodes read by wonderfully engaging and easy-to-listen-to voice talents. Subscribe. Treat yo self. You’ll love it.

Great content, great concept, a few bugs, but they don’t stop me

The content is absolutely 5-star. I have read almost every serial that serial box offers and it’s all been so good that I would purchase and read nearly anything they offer in the future.

I love the ease with which you can switch back and forth between listening to an episode and reading it. That makes the app so valuable, IMO.

The app itself, however can be a bit buggy at times. I have had some problems syncing across devices and sometimes I have to refresh several times to get my purchases to show up. I have occasional crashes and a couple weird navigational issues.

Ultimately, those bugs don’t matter. The writing is top notch, the art and design are sleek and beautiful, and this app has become my very favorite to read in. As a result, I read more on serial box than anywhere else.

Best programs, app has one minor issue

For a while now the app has been having an odd problem where if I reorient my phone, the audio will skip back several minutes. This can be waking up the screen, rotating the phone, changing the form of audio out, stuff like that.

The serials themselves are phenomenonal though so it's worth it. Just worth mentioning in case you can fix it?
