    I hate this app. The audiobook stops in mid stream without letting you know where to pick up the story. I have listen to the same chapters four times trying to get to my place in the book and still haven’t found it.

    I’ve been using the app for a few months now. The freezing and inability to just be able to jump right back into a book after the app does freeze after you close it and reopen it is frustrating. It constantly loses bookmarks and again, the freezing can get really annoying. Also, since the freezing is an issue, it was not a good development idea by the creators to add the pop up asking something like “if you’re enjoying this book, want to see other like it?”. Yes!! I would love to! BUT the app freezes and will lose my spot! The only other major flaw is that when there is a series they don’t have all the books... What’s the point of having books 1,2,3,5,7,9? Maybe they have an aversion to even numbers?? Either way, drives me nuts. End up having to either get them off audible or putting them on hold for months on Overdrive (Library app). So, I’m still paying for audible and Playster. Playster is a fantastic concept, audible has caught on though because they just came out with the unlimited “Romance” package where you can listen to an unlimited amount of books marked as romance by audible. I’m a true crime and detective, mystery, thriller girl so, no good for me. SO, Playster... PLEASE fix the freezing and make finding a book you’re reading much easier to find like audible does. I LOVE the concept, the PRICE and the crazy amount of books I have yet to listen to in my downloads. It has gotten better in the last few months for sure.
  • Crashes Alot

    After giving this app a try for 6 months i have to say I have not been impressed. App locks up very often. Causing me to have to go back into my books library and search my downloads for the book i am listening too and start again. To say the least it doesn’t even sync my place when it does this. Causing me while driving to have to search for where i was when app crashed. On top of it all it seems to do this even more often when the phone rings. For the hefty subscription price I would expect this not to be an issue. Just a few notes from someone who tries to listen to audiobooks while i drive on average 3.5 hours a day.

    The app crashes after every chapter. Even if the chapter was only 1:30mins long.
  • No match for Audible

    I wanted to switch from Audible to Playster, but this app is really glitchy. At least for audiobooks, which is my main use. It will be playing along and then just hangs. I mean, a LOT! After listening to a book for about 45 min, it will stop playing. You have to dig your phone out of your pocket to see why it stopped, and the screen says, are you enjoying this book? Would you like to continue? WHY ON EARTH would it ask someone that? I’m listening to the book. Why disturb me and ask me if I would like to continue listening to the book? The whole point of listening to books is to be able to do so while doing something else where your hands and eyes are busy elsewhere, like driving, or doing dishes, or woodworking, whatever you like. So they have added in this completely intrusive question that requires me to look and press the correct choice before I can keep listening. This seriously sends me into a lather every time. It is so stupid! Also, I speed up playback so I can listen faster. So anytime I have to work around one of the glitches where it stops playing, then it automatically reverts to 1x playback again. It’s just not a well designed app for seasoned audiobook listeners.
  • Great Selection but App is Terrible

    I want to like this, but I cannot due to the fact that the app DOES NOT WORK. Instead of listening to an audiobook with my PAID SUBSCRIPTION, I am repeatedly pressing the play button hoping that the audiobook will actually play, but it doesn’t. Really disappointed and I will be canceling my subscription if it is not fixed. Audible.com may be much more expensive, but at least it works.
  • Very good

    The only thing I dislike about Playster is that I only subscribe to audiobooks, but the screen shows movies, music, etc. in which I am not interested, and I have to scroll down to find audiobooks. Otherwise I really enjoy using this ap.
  • App isn’t high quality and extremely frustrating

    App crashes in the middle of audiobooks. It doesn’t always pick up where you leave off. Too complex to use if you are using while commuting. Extremely frustrating after 2 months of use!
