Probably one favorite apps of all time. •••••The variety, genres & content are fantastic. •••••It couldn’t be easier to submit a request on a search that isn’t available (literally at the bottom of the search results of similar suggested books (love that they do that) if that one isn’t available)! •••••I love that you can BOTH read and/or listen to the full audio books, summaries and most articles. What I wish they’d improve: •••••Add a section in library for favorites •••••Be able to mark a book as read (if anything happens where you have to reinstall the app, it does save your library (finally, thank goodness), but it doesn’t save your progress). I find this to be very annoying. •••••Please add more readable content to the articles and PDFs to the full audio books. •••••Add filters to library (like in email), to search your personal library for unread books or a certain title or genre, etc.

Poor app support

It’s poorly coded, there is no account information, subscription summary, nowhere where I can cancel right away a wrong subscription fee. as I was exploring the app, it said free 7 day trial, after the period it charges the annual fee and when I clicked I instantly was the alert of the charge on my card, they charged me 89.90 right away and there is nowhere to dispute, cancel or even get access to more information. Really poor experience and lots of frustration from the user experience. I will dispute the 90 usd charge through my back as i am not paying that money for a poorly developed app.

Love it!

This app is very much worth the cost. I have learned so much from the book summaries, as well as the general life success tips shared. You will not be disappointed with this service. You’ll never have the time to read all the books you want to read. This app allows you to capture the key take-always from all of the best sellers and classics.

Great content, terrible app

The summaries of nonfiction books are excellent. Instaread content is a great way to absorb a large amount of information quickly. The audio player is terrible. The user interface is terrible. The whole app needs to be overhauled. The problems are numerous: -if you close the app for more than a few minutes, it will not keep your place where you left off. You have to search for the thing your were listening to. Even if you take the time to find it, it will most often start over at the beginning. -if you listen to something part last through then try to start something else, when you come back to the first thing, more often than not it starts over at the beginning. So frustrating. -half the time you hit fast forward or rewind, instead of going 15 or 30 seconds as indicated, it will just go back to the beginning, or skip a whole chapter. -there is no way to save things you’ve listened to separate from a single shelf that includes everything you save. Once you save a few things, you have to wade through to get to things you haven’t listened to yet. There is no way to organize or only show things you haven’t listened to yet. -if you are browsing the app for other content while you listen, there is no way to quickly navigate back to what you’re listening to. You have to search for it or navigate back to your library and scroll through to find it. It is a real shame such great content is languishing in such a disaster of poor design. For someone who listens to content while driving, the constant restarting at the beginning is actually unsafe. It is too distracting to try to find my place, so I just give up. This is a one star app. With the great content provided, it could easily be a five star app with any effort to bring it up to speed with every other popular podcast or audiobook app available.
