    New look & feel

    Refreshed app is great: iPhone X screen support, Kids Mode - very useful. Discovery needs work, but this journey never ends. I love all-you-can-listen model, the fact is Storytel is the last sound I hear before I fall asleep. 👏

    It is exactly

    It is exactly what I had been looking for. In traffic, in the gym, when I am cooking... non-stop learning. Perfect.

  • By Home H.T.I

    Great app

    Works! Easy payments, good selection of books, easy to use app

  • By Miz Friz

    Interface could improve

    Mostly happy with this app. I use it every day. Selection of books are acceptable but could be more extensive. I would love have chapter selections for easier navigation. The scrubbing is a little temperamental. Sometimes it will hang.
