What’s the point of paying $40 a month if you still have to buy the books.
Am I missing something? The Tom Clancy book I want to listen to is additional $19 worth of coins? I wouldn’t recommend Hibooks and feel ripped off! : (
I paid for a yearly subscription before they changed to a credit model, and have been charged to renew before the year was up. Was a fan but it’s felt like a bait and switch for a while. Highly don’t recommend.
This app requires a membership, it used to give you almost unlimited books as long as you paid your membership, now they stopped this and you have to pay for a membership and then buy the books on top of that. They are ripping people off! At least Audible is upfront about their policy. I wanted to switch but have switched back because Hibooks changed their policy without informing prior members....
Be careful after you sign up $39.99 you have to buy whatever book you choose to listen with this stupid coin other then those free leverbox recording books
This program doesn’t even deserve 1 star. After reviewing the scam I tried to cancel this subscription within a few hours from purchasing, but this program wouldn’t let me. I got in contact with the company and I never received my refund and after a year it still is active on my account.
Paid the yearly fee but have a hard time getting app to work. Stick to audible it's simpler
This used to be a great app for lots and lots books for a reasonable price (they do still offer a lot of unlimited books, just not much that appeals to me). Then they started putting extra charges on the top end books. I am referring to the coins. Then, to top it off, they don’t give you any easy way (that I have found yet) to purchase the coins! As a truck driver, I have lots of time to listen and this used to be my go-to app. Not any more. I am cancelling when my current sub is up. If I wanted to pay twice for the privilege of listening to books, I would just go back to audible. Thanks for being greedy and ruining an otherwise wonderful app!
I like the idea but I’m extremely confused on how to get coins! I tap on “Learn About Coins” and the only thing it really says about coins is: “the profile tab is the place to go”. I’m lost!
I used to really like hi-books. I was fine paying $10 a month for unlimited reading even though their selection wasn’t the best. And even though the app is not really search friendly. Then they changed things, added tons of books and lowered the monthly bill to $5, but starting charging for the premium books individually. Well that defeats the purpose of unlimited. And still the search function is annoying to use. Now I can’t even access anything in the app. I’m guessing they changed things up again and are charging more? Hey Hi-books, how about a heads up?!
