  • Great app! Reasonable price!

    I like the app a lot! Love that it’s unlimited listening unlike a lot of audiobook apps where you are only allowed a limited number each month! There’s just a few little things that stops it from being a 5 star! 1. It doesn’t tell you how much time is left in the book 2. There’s no way to search by author 3. Book selection could be better But over all enjoying it!
  • Great app!

    I love this app! I love the price for the amount of options you get! Although I would like to make two requests. First I would love for this app to be available on my Apple Watch. I would love to download books straight to my watch so I can go without my phone on walks. Also, I would love a section or folder for books I’ve already read.

    This app is amazing. Forget only getting one book and having a wish list. For only $9.99/month you have an entire library. Yes the library is free, but can you download a 10 book series in 15 minutes and enjoy it while lying down on your bed? Trust me it’s worth it!
  • Great App!!!

    Love this app - there could be some improvements as others have said but overall I am impressed. I’ve gotten all the books I had on hold on my overdrive account and can now listen to them whenever! Woohoo! Cons: scrubbing is a little laggy so it doesn’t catch up and has like “hold music” playing with the book for a few minutes then starts playing the book where you scrubbed to. *edited to say I found the speed and you can change it ;-) I stand corrected!
  • I love the app so far but it’s missing a lot of features

    So I’ve used Audible and Libby to listen to audiobooks for a long time now. I use Hibooks (started using it back when it was Otto) because of the monthly subscription being unrestricted, unlimited books. Hibooks is like the Netflix for audiobooks! What I don’t like so far: The player, it’s so hard to do anything besides play/pause. I have zero idea how far I’m into the book (percentage or time left) would be great. There’s no description about the book after you start listening to it. I some times want the details or the some other info. Playing from Bluetooth is kind of weird, I need to tap play twice but some times it’ll just play and pause. Chapters reset if the app closes so if you were in a chapter 50 mins long and you were 6:32 seconds away from finishing it, it’ll start the chapter over, this is frustrating. Under “Continue Listening”, I wish there was a way to remove a finished book, I pretty much see this as unfinished books even if I get to the very end of a book. I wish the library was better organized or at least had some sort of a filter (like by progress or name), look at Spotify for ideas.
  • Best money ever spent!!

    I am an avid reader and listener! I was purchasing books from Audiobood Stand on MP3 cd for anywhere from $6 to $20 per title. They have recently gone out of business and I was wondering where to go for my future audiobooks. Well I found it!! This is the greatest app ever!! The best money I have ever spent!!
  • Loving it

  • Needs Different Payment Options

    By Quinnton Thedens
    This app is really great and saves me a lot of money on audiobooks (5 dollars cheaper than Audible) but it has only one payment option: in-app purchases through iTunes. Due to my phone not allowing me make in-app purchases I can’t subscribe to Hibooks. I reached out to the customer support and they told me that they probably won’t have other options for quite awhile.

    All you need is to look at the listed political books to see a very slanted viewpoint. I do not need this!
