  • Awful

    I’ve been a member for months and am about to just cancel my service. You can’t search by author. When you click an author’s name there are no book lists. Books that used to be there are gone. Some in certain series are there, but not all. When I do search it brings the same lame, never been heard of books as the results. It is definitely NOT worth the $30 monthly fee. It used to be. Not any more.
  • Only worked half the time

    I travel a lot and depend on books to keep me focused. 9/10 it would never load my book. Or load it correctly even if I downloaded the book to my phone! Not worth it. Audible was much more reliable.
  • Love me some books

    I love that I can listen to books and not have to pay for each book like I have to with Audible pay a monthly subscription and that’s it with Audible you pay the monthly subscription but then you still have to buy a book to listen dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of that’s like paying for Netflix and having to pay for each movie you watch
  • Price is right app is slow

    This app is a lot slower than audible but it’s hard to beat unlimited audio books
  • Frustrating App and Unclear Pricing

    I originally thought that Playster could replace my Audible subscription but updates log me out and delete my downloaded books. On top of that the app is very convoluted to use and lacks some basic controls that Audible offers. Lastly, their pricing seems fishy to say the least. One price on their site, another in this apps description, and a 3rd in the in-app purchase. I’m also uncomfortable with how authors get paid, as I can’t find any info on that. Overall, I’d say to steer clear until things get better.

    You need to have internet to listen to the books. Unable to download a book at home ahead of time and listen while camping. Very disappointing there is too much area that has no internet service.

    I love the options and amounts of audible books they offer. The app isn’t user friendly. Trying to look up titles,aurthors,or genres is ridiculous. This app needs a whole revamp. With the amount of money we pay a month I shouldn’t have to look on Amazon to see the order of books cause Playster doesn’t list them. I also have to use Amazon/Audible to find the other book in the series. If a revamp isn’t done. I will be canceling.
  • Very glitchy poor service

    When I would try to start a book after having stopped, the app would kick me out and I’d have to log back in. Then it would say my cache was full and I couldn’t listen to any books. It’s a very frustrating app and I’ve cancelled my membership.
  • Needs work.

    I use for the audiobooks only. Pretty good selection but the books don’t always play. Sometimes I will start a book and then not be able to finish it because of an “error”. I have one book that I have been anxious to listen to and it only shows the error. I’ve emailed and did all their silly requests, replies and months later still can’t listen to the book. Searching is also a problem. You have to go at it many different ways to hopefully find what you are looking for. And sometimes the authors will show but none of their books;even though I’ve seen their books on the app. The saving audiobooks to your list isn’t a good either. Sometimes only the top ones will show. Sometime the authors A-F are available but not the rest. Honestly though very frustrated I want to keep this service because when it works you can get your moneys worth and more from it. But instead of getting better seems it’s getting worse. Customer service is okay but all in all not helpful.

    For over a week now I’ve been trying to listen to one audiobook that takes for ever to load then the app crashes and I’m taken to my home screen. The idea of the app is great and the first week I used it the app worked well. Now I feel like paying monthly for it doesn’t make sense if I can’t even use the app.
