    I was spending over $100 on audible. This subscription is amazing! Thank you for your easy to use subscription service and your easy to use platform. The only thing I would change is that you don’t see how much time you have left on the book only on the individual chapter. I travel daily for my job sometimes as much as 6 or 7 hours a day in the car. This has been an amazing alternative to audible!
  • Like Netflix for books!

    I have audible and love to listen to books constantly. I’m a traveling nurse so I drive quite a bit. I still have my audible account and have kindle unlimited but those are limited by what they choose that month. I also had scribd but they limit how many audible books I can listen to a month, and that is incredibly frustrating when your listening to a series. So I gave this a try and so far I love it. I dropped scribd the second day! No restrictions and they have a huge selection of books/ newer ones too. A lot have whole series and the price is definitely comparable to other services.
  • Great, but need more features

    Love that this is the Netflix of audiobooks. I was discouraged on my few initial searches when I couldn’t find certain books, Jurassic Park and The Haunting of Hill House to name a couple. Yet, I was able to find new releases fairly easily. The labeling of chapters tends to be a bit confusing. The narrators will say chapter 4, but the app will have the section listed as chapter 21. This may be confusing for people who may use this to listen to books for a class or for a book club. A feature I wish the app had was a percentage completed. I will know how far I am in a specific chapter, but not the book itself. I won’t know if I’m halfway or near the end. A quick tutorial of the app would be nice to have available in settings. It took a couple of days to understand what the check mark was for. Can’t wait to enjoy this app more!
  • So far so good

    I like the book availability. I love the play speed. I don’t like that it doesn’t keep my place and I have to start the chapter over when I reopen the app. This is the first book I’ve listen to on this app, and maybe audible spoiled me, but I do like it better than playster
  • No bias here.

    It’s painfully obvious just by looking at the titles that are here, and those that are not. There are ZERO Thomas Sowell. ZERO Mark Levin. No new books. Dan Bongino. Even the new Clay Travis book. Why? I think I know. Actually, I know I know why. Canceling my account.
  • Great App!!!

    I’ve been a member of Audible for 7-8 years and it’s a great app also, but bye bye Audible !! HiBooks costs less and unlimited books -WHAT!!! I haven’t had any problems and I didn’t use the bookmark much so, not missing it. Otherwise the two are the same. You guys are awesome!!! I’m in!! Kathy.
  • App holds promise- needs a few tweaks to be great

    An app that is cheaper than audiable and offers unlimited audiobooks holds a great promise. Even when trying this app I could see all the potential. Unfortunately, there are some things holding me back from subscribing. -searching for books is difficult on the app. As another user noted, searching for Stephen king produces hardly any books and you have to sift through most all available books to find any. Most users don’t want to take the time to do this and it makes it seem like you don’t have these audiobooks even when you do. - to further the search-ability of books, having links to author and series pages from the main book page (I.e the stand by Stephen king) to show the available books by the author (all books available by Stephen king) and the series( book one of two etc) would be beneficial. - an option to select the chapter list while in book, allowing you to seamlessly jump between chapters in case you miss one. It also shows users how many chapters are left and how long they are. - a timer showing how much time is left in the entire book. Its nice to see if I have two hours or nine left in the entire book. -more ways to sort your saved books such as sort by author name. These are only the few for me (I’ve seen bookmarks being mentioned by another user, but I don’t normally use these) and if these are added in time, your app could become a great competitor for audiable. 9.99 is a fair monthly price for unlimited audiobooks, but since the app is still in development, a few more tweaks are needed to make it worth it. I really hope to come back to the app after these things have been, hopefully, fixed and added.
  • Better than Audible
