    Scam! Do NOT use.

    I signed up for the 30 day trail to listen to an audio book. I put in my credit card information. Standard stuff. Well, I forgot to cancel within 30 days and got charged a monthly fee. That’s my fault. Here’s where the issues arise. I log on to the website to cancel my membership and neither email that I have was recognized when I tried to log on. No sweat, I clicked forgot pasword to retrieve my password. NEVER received a recovery email. So, I submit a request to see if someone from customer support can assist. After submitting the request, I get a response 8 hours later from TESH, stating that he is unable to locate the account with the email provided. How am I being charged each month if I don’t have an account. He then asks for the last for of my credit card that I used to set up the account to assist him in locating the account. Never hear back from him. That was 2 months ago. I am still being charged monthly and I have no way of canceling the membership because I don’t have an “account”. I’ve submitted multiple help tickets since and I have never received a response back.

    Have to agree with the other reviews about audio books

    3/7/19- though I am disappointed in the limit on audio books, if they had just explained up front, what the * means in regard to them instead of having us figure it out, it would not be so upsetting. So, if you do listen to a lot of audiobooks and not take advantage of the e-books, magazines and other materials, be aware that you may be limited. Third month in and I guess I listen to too many audiobooks because all that appears now are old classic books with black covers no matter what category I choose. For instance The Boxcar Children appears under Contemporary Fiction, Scribd recommends, Mystery, Bestsellers, Mystery, Romance and every category there is. The daily recommendations has disappeared and the top lists have remained the same for over a month. I also get variations of the same canned response when I submit a ticket. This is sad for such poor customer service. I am going back to the public library for my audiobooks. Enjoy the free month and maybe the first paid, they are worth it but beware after that.

    Great App!

    I love this app so much. My daughter and I compared several reading apps before trying this one. I am quite happy with it so far, and so is she. It uses very little battery life, and with the different screen color settings, I can read easily at night without hurting my eyes or disturbing my husband. The price is fairly reasonable for the amount of books you get per month, but I do wish I could either trade my audiobook credit for another book credit or gift my audiobook credit to my daughter, since I doubt I’ll use them and she wishes she had more. Haha. Other than that, I’m very happy with our choice. I can find just about any author that I search for. Oh, and the unlimited sheet music is just an added bonus for me! I’ve found music that I used to play when I was younger, and newer music as well. I’m sure that this app is one that I’m going to keep a subscription on for a long while.

    Unlimited, mostly.

    It is unlimited, but it seems that certain books have limits imposed by the publisher, so if you don’t DOWNLOAD the book you want, you just save it (so basically it is on your reading list, but not downloaded), it can be sort of out-of-stock before you get to it. I waited a few weeks until 9/4 for some books I wanted, then a few days after 9/4, some of them already said not available until 10/4, then the date changed to 10/5. I started to worry it was a scam, but on 10/5, I was able to download about a dozen books I’d been waiting for. It is a good value, as long as you are willing to be flexible and wait sometimes. It’s a bit like waiting for books to come back in to the library. But considering the cost of audiobooks retail, it’s a good deal. ** That said, the latest update seems to have a glitch, and keeps crashing about 20 seconds after I start my book. I can listen from my computer, but that is certainly not as convenient. I’ve enjoyed this app for months without a problem, so I really hope they fix this ASAP!

    Good and Bad

    So there’s both good and frustrating sides to this app. Good: 1. Its cheaper than audible or other services I’ve found- and most books I don’t really care to add to my library anyway because I’ll most likely only read or listen to once, so I don’t need the audible purchase option. Bad: 1. It says “unlimited” but in reality it’s only “unlimited for the first 2 weeks. After 2 weeks most of the books I have bookmarked (that were showing as available) will all of a sudden say “this title will be available on (whatever my renewal date is).” I sent a query about this and was told that it’s because titles are constantly rotating, but I looked on a friends app and the titles I wanted showed as available to her. It’s really just a ploy to get you to renew your subscription each month. Super frustrating!!! (Note: There’s still books available to me at that point, just none that I specifically want). 3. The player works well about 65% of the time. Lately it’s been stopping at the end of every chapter or jumping back two chapters and I have to re-find my place manually— also annoying. For how many books I listen to, it’s still the best deal though.
