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!
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
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.
I tried to down kid a book several times without success. I am erasing the app.
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.
I’ve tried several times to create an account and I’m repeatedly told that I need to enter a valid email. I’ve done so, trying with several emails, and keep receiving the same msg. Thoughts?
I can’t even create an account because the field keeps telling me that my e-mail isn’t valid!
Multiple emails about error downloading rental. Problem finally fixed, now site crashes EVERYtime I try to access rentals. Boo
While I enjoy the perks of having a subscription it is hard to enjoy it when it is constantly glitching. The new update it is it working and even after I delete the app and re-install it. It continues to close before I have time to even see the screen to tap on an audio book. Not happy to pay every month and not be able to listen when I want too.
The app keeps crashing whenever I go to the info screen for a book and I cannot download anything.
