The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax 5/5
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and the speaker was wonderful
Chirp was a pleasant surprise - audio books for$.99!! Just finished my first book “That Boy” by Jillian Dodd. So good!! Highly recommend both to everyone.
Because I cannot rate lower 1/5
Listened to half of a downloaded book and it stopped. When I checked my list it is no longer downloaded. I CANNOT download any of my books therefore can only listen when on Wi-Fi. I sent them a message but have been ignored.
I’ve finally found it! 5/5
A site with affordable audio books! Thank you!
Almost Perfect 4/5
I really like this site. Decent books, great prices and ease of use. I can’t afford Audible so I was excited to find Chirp. I just have a few suggestions about how to get that fifth star. I need to be able to “put away” books I’ve read. As more books are added the list becomes very crowded. The sort option doesn’t work well and is unclear as to what exactly is being listed. I realize apps are always being updated and improved and I look forward to Chirp being made better and better. It’s a life saver for book lovers who need to hear their books.
The Good Girl 4/5
By reader number 63
Good story once you get past a few chapters
The Moon Susters 5/5
By N.J. Cuz
Terrific story with wonderful narration. The voices are distinct you’ll feel like you’re standing there with Jazz, Olivia, Hobbs and all. And you won’t want to hit stop.
Excellent, and at times, a spine tingling story! 5/5
By Blue Curt
Excellent, and at times, a spine tingling story.
Audiobook book I paid for it does not download. 1/5
By moses channels
I paid for a book and my bank account was charged. I downloaded the app, signed in, but my book does not appear! This app is seriously flawed. I would not recommend it.
Need a way to search 1/5
I have specific title I joined for. Now I find there is no way to search. 😑
Keeps crashing 2/5
By mustard frog
Happy with the selections available, but shuts down after EVERY track. Super frustrating. I’d rather pay more and listen uninterrupted.
One suggestion 4/5
A sampling before purchase would help because some books have terrible narrator voices.
Great app 4/5
Great selection of discounted audiobooks! The app works similar to Overdrive or Audible. The only important feature missing is the ability to place a bookmark which is my reason for 4 stars and not 5.
Gator A Go- Go 5/5
Dorsey is whacked! Listening to his books is a riotous escape. It’s fun to take that left-hand turn every now and then. Definitely not for those who take themselves too seriously.
Please fix this app 2/5
First off- it’s theoretically a great service with reasonably priced books. It would be a usable app if it worked correctly. As another reviewer stated, it just stops working while you’re using it- usually driving- and you have to stop and open the app to restart it. Dangerous if not simply annoying. Sometimes it starts back at the beginning of a chapter too.
I have emailed the support twice with no response. I won’t get another book until this is resolved. And can someone reply?
Add a wish list option!! 3/5
I literally just downloaded this app and bought my first book. Scrolling though the book options on the website I’m really wishing there was a like or wish list option. There’s no way I’ll remember what books I want and the ones that expire first will obviously be what I purchase first but I can’t buy them ALL now! 🤦🏼♀️ Oh and a search bar would be awesome!
Need option for a bookmark 4/5
I go to sleep listening to books and set the timer. Would be nice to be able to mark your spot with a bookmark as other audio book apps offer. Otherwise this a fantastic and affordable way to listen to books. So glad I found Chirp!
Can’t search? 3/5
Love not having a subscription--can't pause book though 4/5
I listen on an iPod. My Apple earbuds can start, but not pause the books. I have to pause from the screen.
Intriguing, mysterious, romantic, fast paced, and leaving one wishing for more.
Search feature? 2/5
The listening app seems fine, although really isn’t it all about the website where you find the books? I don’t see a search engine anywhere, unless I’m being really obtuse. I don’t have the time (or willingness) to find a book I’m looking for just by browsing. I’ll be back when it gets easier.
Frustration outweighs the benefits 3/5
Nice selection though it does not change very often
But function is just too erratic
Sometimes it plays sometimes it doesn't fit no evident reason
A cold dark night 5/5
Great story line full of suspense and intrigue. Twists and turns that keep you guessing.
Twists and turns... 5/5
Thoroughly enjoyed this book.. especially hearing it read... it was hard to “put it down.”
Sandra Gail 5/5
Thank you for chirp! Every month I purchase 4 or 5 books. I haven’t had a bad one yet!! Love this app!
No option to search for books 1/5
All I get is a page with words saying I have no books in my library. I cannot access books available on this app. Actual website is a little better but not much since there is no way to look for a particular title.
Young 007... 5/5
By Rochardo 001
An excellent Bond novel. I can visualize Sean Connery in this role of a lethal, young 007... Highly recommended!
Needs work 4/5
I like this app and the books I’ve listened to so far but there needs to be a better way to delete read books from your device. The download and delete functions are very clumsy.
Love it! 5/5
Huge audiobook fan!
Not a fan of the pricing. To that end I subscribe to scribd, audible and now chirp. All 3 have both benefits and disadvantages. The beauty of chirp is the pricing. It fills a gap with titles that may have piqued my interest as well as books I’d enjoy owning but don’t want to pay $$. So, chirp provides a way to expand your library with beloved and 'whim' titles for a fraction of the price. Love it!
I love the books... 3/5
...and I love the readers. There are two things which prevent me from granting five stars:
The readings stop for no apparent reason and don’t start up again without opening the app, selecting the book, opening it and hitting the play button. Aggravating if your on a walk, Monumentally aggravating if your driving! In order to continue listening I have to pull over in a safe spot, go through the above procedure to start listening again, then drive off. PLEASE FIX THIS!
I have several books in my library, many with similar titles. I am old, and often don’t recall the books I have already read. Can you figure a way to delete a book, or better, mark it as read? That would be great.
By Dexter Lee's Mom
States story is unabridged and that run time is 8+ hours. Reading was done in 2+ hours. This should not classify as a novel but a novella. I would not have wasted time.
How to choose earlier played track? 4/5
Appending: A workaround. If I’m on track 17 and want to go to track 15, choose track one started playing, then chose track 15 and everything is A-OKI’m very very pleased with this app. One problem. When I go to sleep listening and then wake up I want to go to a previously played track. When I choose the previous track, the app goes to the background. When I bring it to the foreground it’s still on the track I was listening too. Unless you tell me how to do this, I may never find out why she’s mad at him!
Amusing inspiration 5/5
By Gma LMG
A predictable story line, but with some unique twists. A practical look at Christian faith at work.
I completely enjoyed the reading by Alan Cumming. I am a fan of Alan Cumming. As is common, the reading is abridged. I read along with a full length copy of the play. Thank You...
Not quite 3/5
By not a mountain goat
One book a month on Audible and I was happy to give this a shot. However it is not as good as Audible. Frequent refusals to play. Too many buttons to push to get it started and times my library disappears. Hope they get the bugs out.
Superior service 5/5
I am really happy with the outstanding service I have gotten from Chirp!!!
They are truly the very best!
Chirp audio books 5/5
Listening to the audio books pass the time so well I don’t feel as tired when I’m working. Thank you.
Great prices, growing offering, easy listening experience 5/5
I was excited to discover this app and service. I love listening to audiobooks before bed, but couldn’t justify a subscription to Audible. Chirp offers great prices and their offerings seem to be improving all the time. You buy the books on their site and then they show up in this app for your listening pleasure. Super easy to use. Highly recommended for all audiobook listeners.
Great audiobook deals 5/5
Listened to The Favorite Sister and The Mars Room recently and got them both for under $5!
