  • Glitchy and unreliable

    By Cameron Nicholson
    It is very frustrating to be listening to a book and suddenly it stops and you get the message that it can't connect to the server. Also it loves you place in the books often and it's very infuriating
  • Inconsistent

    I’ve been an avid audiobook listener for years. I have been using Playster for nearly a year now and considering giving it up. The limited use of the audiobook is annoying and the inability to even search for titles is simply ridiculous. The functionality of the app is also troublesome. I also use audible and will continue service with them because at least I don’t have to log in several times a day, it doesn’t forget my place in a book and I can save titles from my computer and they still show up on my app. I started listening to a book on my computer on playster after I saved it, added it to a playlist and not only can I not find it saved on the app it doesn’t even show up on my history. I was looking for an audiobook app like playster because I hate paying for a book I don’t like or finish. But it’s not saving me anything when I can’t even use the app half the time anyway and I have waited weeks between books and still have restricted access. I don’t have these negative feelings towards other apps and it really prevents me from recommending this app to my audiobook loving friends.
  • Developers, what do you plan to do?

    Developers, I want to know what you plan to do to fix these issues that have been occurring for over a year now? I am experiencing the same problems as everyone else here and I’ve explained them in a previous review. I’ve been reading your responses that you are working on correcting the issues but these same issues have been ongoing for far too long. What is the hold up? How do you justify doubling the cost but not the quality of the service? I guess it’s of no real concern since there is no other service quite like yours out there right now. Only when you have some real competition in this particular type service will you be forced to step your game up.
  • Not Working

    I have a hard time with pausing the book and coming back. It always starts at a previous point in book, usually far back and I have lost everything I have read. So I have to bookmark every single time I stop it. Books have trouble loading which is frustrating considering I pay for the service and I have listened to half of it. Fix those and it would be better.

  • Don’t purchase subscription

    You can’t access your account after purchase. Playster sends you back to App Store for refund and app store sends you back to playster. I am out $15.00. Playster says to purchase plan thru website but forget about the money you already paid out
  • Seriously! What is up with this app?

    This app frequently takes itself on long breaks where you can’t listen to your downloaded audiobooks because it”cannot verify server”. Meanwhile every other app I have is not having any issue. Frustrating - and will cause me to head on back to Audible. It may be more expensive but at least it works reliably.
  • Good concept poor execution

    Basically Netflix for Audiobooks. All you can eat for $14/month. Great idea. Great concept. That being said compared to Audible this app is crap. Something happens and you have to pause playback in the middle of a chapter and you don’t get back quickly then it kicks you back to the beginning of the chapter. Get a phone call while listening? You guessed it. Back to the beginning of the chapter. Sign up for the one month free trial? It’s not actually Free. You only get to listen to part of the book before if stops you wanting you to pay for a full month. Fortunately I still have my Audible. At the end of the month I am canceling my subscription.
  • Worst app ever!

    After over two months of trying to get my subscription working I finally demanded a refund. The customer service is terrible and the app is junk!

    I was so excited to start a subscription for the audiobook premium, but whenever I push the listen button it does not work. So, I just paid 15 dollars for nothing. Please help me out if I’m doing anything wrong because I really hope it’s me and not the app because I’ve heard so many great comments.
