Good selection lots of flaws

2
My main problem is audio books becoming unavailable for me earlier and earlier in the month. I often quit books early in because of of poor narrators I mean mispronounced words, speech issues, droning voices, slow reading. Also at least two books that I can recall had poor audio with skipping noises. There needs to be a preview button at least for audio books. That way I don’t waste my time and lose a spot for the month. When you search being able to filter by genre would be nice as well as being able to see all audio books even if I can’t listen. I could at least add them to my to listen. I’m willing to give this another month or two but I’m not sure if I’ll keep my subscription much longer.

Missing audiobooks

1
I have been a fan of scribd, but twice this month they have moved an audiobook I was listening to into the not-available-until-next-month category. I understand the need to put limitations on consumption, but the utter lack of transparency (is this title I’m going to try out a “premium” title that’s going to shoot my monthly allowance?, etc) is maddening. Also, the app has really gotten buggy. And I’m tired of being jerked around. This is it for me for a while, I suspect. You didn’t have to lose my business. :(

I wanted to love this service

2
The price for this service is great and the selection is also great for the price point. However, the app has major issues. I’ve listened to maybe 5 books and the app has crashed and lost my place probably 20 times. It often pauses randomly and seems to have trouble linking with my Bluetooth devices/commands.

“Available” titles suddenly not available

1
I have just discovered that 11, ELEVEN, titles were removed from my account—4-5 days after they became AVAILABLE and I checked them out. This MUST be an easily corrected algorithm mistake. Right? Buyer beware. There are better services out there. Try these free apps: Libby/Overcast; Hoopla; RBDigital—all affiliated with public library systems. $10/month is too much to pay for a subscription which limits your borrowing w/o explanation.

Slightly disappointed and confused

3
First few days were great had a lot of books I wanted to listen to but then for some reason all of a sudden they weren’t on the app anymore now they’ve appeared back and will be available on the 27th kind of annoying when I’m paying to listen to said books

Over the “unlimited” limited selection

2
Read 2 books. Two. And the rest were put on unavailable until the end of the month. I did save others to my shelf to see if it would allow me to read them. They are still unavailable until the end of the month. This is the third time it’s happened so I guess you can only read one or two books per month. You have to wait for the the rest and then it will make whatever you don’t start reading unavailable again.

Falling Apart

1
This App is getting worse and worse. The titles randomly disappear. You will be half way through a book and then it just disappears. At times the entire library is unavailable. It cuts off randomly. It will show you a bunch of new books that will be “available” soon... they never show up. Loved this app but it’s starting to bum me out. Update: It just keeps getting worse. Don’t waste your money. You could just download LibriVox and have the same selection. Got some ridiculous reply saying they purposely remove titles on a rotation. Makes no sense.

What happened to my favorite app

2
Okay, what the actual heck?! I love audiobooks through this app and listen to them daily. Recently, I only have access to a very few audiobooks and they are all unpopular/manuscript types. I’m very dissatisfied because I loved all the options I had previously. I’m angry that I paid for this service and no longer have access to the books I love. I’ll be leaving for audible.

False advertising

2
THIS APP IS NOT UNLIMITED AUDIOBOOKS. AFter you reach about three audiobooks per month, you have to wait till next month to listen more. Response was untrue... thank goodness I found Libby
