Seemed good

It seemed good then it started crashing after launching the app so i don’t know how to feel.

Crash!

I wake up today to this app crashing immediately after opening. Reinstalling doesn’t solve the problem. Restarting the phone doesn’t help. Please fix pronto.

Disappointed New Customer

3
I just made my first purchases. Tried to download them, but the app kept on cycling between 2 different ‘download’ buttons! Then l tried to relay this to customer service via the email link on the purchase confirm, but got an ‘undeliverable message’ response with the reason that l wasn’t on the group’s ‘accepted email list’. What kind of foolishness is this? Unless l get satisfaction l may not stay on this site, which would be a shame for Blackstone as well as me since I’m seriously looking to purchase the $390 Shakespeare set. Your serve, Downpour.

Don’t bother

I paid for a download a couple years ago. Now, after completing the app update I can’t access my files without repurchasing. I find this completely ridiculous and unjust. Giving them even one star is one star too many.

Just what you want

Does exactly what you need in an app of this sort: wide variety of titles, excellent voice talent and a good mix of rent-or-buy options. This is an update to a prior (one-star) review. I had given a low rating because I was unable to play a rental due to an “Invalid license content” error and had no way to get around it. Tech Support had me delete and reinstall the app, and it worked fine from then out.

Disappointed

I see absolutely no option to rent, which was why I wanted to try this app out. The buy prices are at least $10 more than Google Books or iTunes, so I'm going elsewhere. Waste of a download!

Problems

3
I would like to point out three problems with your app, all of which make me more inclined to use Audible instead, even though I would prefer to buy titles directly from you, whenever possible... if only you would fix the app. First, the time display shows progress and time remaining only in the current chapter. I would like to be able to switch that display, but could not find an option for doing so. Second, the volume level drops whenever I get an email or other alert tone, but does not pause playback, and so I miss several words of the book, every time this happens. It is quite annoying, and mostly, I would like a setting to choose how I want this behavior to exhibit. Third, is that the playback will pause when I remove an AirPod, as does Audible, but if I have it out for more than a very few seconds, it will not resume without my taking out my phone, opening the app or pull-down access, and hitting the play button again. This is a lot of extra effort every time someone makes a comment to me or demands my attention for a moment, while I am listening. This also should either be changed, or be made a selectable preference option. I hope that you will fix these problems, so that I may use your service as much or more than I use Audible. If not, I will likely return completely to Audible, even though I am terribly annoyed with how poorly they treat authors. Sincerely, - Prof. Cascaddan

App crashes easily

While searching for books and reading summaries, the app will crash for no reason. Usually doesn’t crash while listening to your downloaded books however, or else I would give the app a 1 star.

Creating an account

1
I’ve never used this app before so I created a account. It said this email had been used before to I was confused and pressed ok. I saw a book I had never read and had no credits because apparently I got that book. So I tried one of my family members email and the same thing happened but they never used the app. I just wanted to read a 11 hour book without paying money for audible.
