Need Internet access to work 4/5
By Bob Stewart97401
I got this because I only occasionally need to get an audio book. I didn't want a subscription model. I just downloaded a book at home before leaving for a trip through eastern Oregon and Nevada, where there is scant cell coverage, so no Internet. If I stopped the app for any reason, I needed to have Internet access to get to the library where the info for the book was stored. As a result, I went without my downloaded book for periods of time. The book itself played fine once the library was accessed...no need for Internet. Not particularly useful in a world where Internet coverage isn't universal.
Update: see developer response below. The app is fine... will try it again on another trip. If it works without Internet, it's exactly what I wanted!
Rough around the edges 3/5
I love listening to audio books and this company has a large selection, but the app is very basic, quite buggy and not user-friendly. Tech support was friendly and quick, but they can't fix the software. I'll stick with the app because of their books, but I hope they'll put more effort into the app.
Overpriced, discriminates against in-app purchcases, and poor customer service 1/5
I downloaded a book from audiobooksnow thinking I would get the new member discount advertised when I signed up with this outfit. Instead, they charged me full price. When I complained, they explained that, had I purchased the book on the web and then downloaded it to my phone it would have received the 50% discount, but because I purchased it through the app I paid full price. The reason? Apple charges them for in-app purchases. I cancelled my membership and now the book that I PURCHASED is gone. Stick with the reputable companies selling audio books!
This the worst club i've ever joined. Last Mo I signed in for free trial, and couldn't get to the audio books I could never pull any up. So I forgot about it until $19.99 was taken from my acct. I called CS the girl was very rude, I asked for a manager. She told she would submit a request for a refund. Now 2wks later still no $. I called back and was told they denied my refund. I ask for manager again this time they said I download a book call the holy war. I advised her did no such thing. The only reading I do is my Bible but I do listen to books on audio. Mgr, said she would request again to billing department, I asked to speak to someone there, I was told this is an online book club. They don't have a department where there is actual people to talk to.
So this is why I'm writing this review. If I could I would highlight just a tip of the star.
Sound problems 2/5
By Dasha MRS
It has some sound bugs. It pauses while listening.
Don't like 1/5
By Camille Caballero
Love this app. Very easy to use. Great selection of audiobooks. There are free classics and good prices for new releases. Awesome!! The one thing I would like to see added is the price of the audiobook on the main page instead of having to go to the next page.
Better than other paying audiobook apps! 4/5
I love this app. Easy to use , wide variety of selection.
A couple of APP and Website addition suggestions though:
1-add a wish list for books we want to purchase.
2- the books we purchase and download to app need to have an option to download portions at a time for those with limited space. - this is almost a deal breaker. You can download portions on a computer but not on the app. Also be able to delete those portions after listening and then download the ones ahead.
Thanks for your consideration.
I use Overdrive a LOT and would use yours more and purchase more if there were similar functionalities.
Love this app!!!! 5/5
Absolutely amazing! I love to listen while I'm at work and riding in the car. Very wide selection of books.
I absolutely love the audiobooksnow, I have probably ordered 40 books, at least and if I ever have a problem they fix the problem ASAP! If I ever want to return an audiobook they refund the money immediately. Their customer service is awesome!! When you send an email you get one back right away!! I will never use another audiobook app!! 💜❤️

Over priced 1/5
Too expensive $38.99 for one Outlander Series book! That's insane!!! How is this affordable?? Disappointed. Email stated 30 free trial, also stated prices lower then store books. I must be missing something because this is t right.
This app is very good and useful for my life!
There are many great titles to choose from!

There is no reasons to not get this app. It super convenient for people who love reading but don’t always have the time or option of reading a physical book.
