Reviews From google play store

The collection is good but the app still has a few bugs with playback, and surprisingly so. For an app playing that's playing audio files, I'd think the team's first priority would be to get that right. Please fix it. Resuming playback either after a pause or after moving back a few steps fails, and I've just got to wait till the app feels like playing back again. 4 stars because I'm hopeful, and I like the business model, product pricing and collection.

I'm really happy with the app, and think that subscription is a good investment. I'd only add a table of contents so listeners could find chapters and concepts easily. Other features could be customize the lapses of time a listener could go back or forward on the book, as of now, you can only do this on 15 seconds jumps. Maybe in the future the possibility to have transcripts in the audio books or the option to do searches by words inside a book. Apart from that, I really recommend it.

App is good...smooth, fast. Some speakers are really awesome. I am not a big fan of ebooks..but audiobooks are really good. I gave 4 star, not 5 for lack of dark theme. I mostly listen during the night, before sleeping. In the night, that white background is very bad. Once there is a dark theme, will revise my ratings as well.

At first I was super excited with the app and I started using it a lot. But then the more I used it the more I noticed that those I thought were glitches, are in fact full fledged bugs. The App Requires a LOT of improvement. Especially in downloading content and managing the bookshelf. Please FIX IT or lose your customers and see your company plunge. You are fighting against Amazon's Audible. Please work harder on product delivery.

It's a wonderful app to catch up with all the reading which I have vowed to do. Now I find myself enjoying mundane tasks like washing the dishes or commuting to work because those are the perfect moments to utilise this app. If storytel can include more e-books I believe their clientele would increase. Include a function which allows both listening and reading to be done at the same time -> beneficial for students and the young since listening does minimum for language learning.

Bad design. There is a white circle button? It does nothing? Functionality isn't working, like speeding up the readers, I put it on 1.25. I press play and nothing happens. The app should be rebuilt. Hopefully the iOS version is better.

Improvement suggestions: it will be good to be able to see how much more do you have left in the chapter, not only the whole book. Also, a list with all chapters might be good, so you can go back to particular chapter for re-read if needed.

Just amazing. Great voices, stories. In Audible you pay more and you get only one book (the ones you want to listen to) but in Storytel, paying less you can listen to as many as you want. Please, do not change!

I gave this app a good shot, paid for a few months. Language: emails and most app text defaults to language of the country you're living in. For expats, tough. Also, books download to about 70% and then starts again. Connecting abroad it tells me that it's not available in that country. Book progress bar not by chapter. Trying to skip 5mins forward in a 15 hour book requires precision of 0.00001mm.

For some books there is no option to choose in the chapter, so if I want to go back I have to rewind on the time line. When I then try to go back it jumps 2 hours ahead. A better rewind function or skip X seconds back (like on Spotify) would be nice.

Great way to access audiobooks, as well as ebooks without breaking the bank. It has a decent collection, it's lacking very few books I'm interested in. Jumping acroos an audiobook is not very reliable sometimes, nor the synchronization of where you are at it.

The app is great and all, but having an easier access to the search and my shelf taps would be great. Putting a search bar at the top and a "my shelf" tap at the bottom would make it a lot more easier to use the app.

It is an awesome application, I have been using since past 6 months. Books are managed previously. 4 for scope of books. Not able to find some of my favourite books in the collection.

Please provide paytm option for payment. I'm not able to start subscription with my Rupay card. 1 star to attract your attention to this point only. Otherwise app deserve minimum 3.5 star. Will go to 5 star if rates are lower. :)

It's a bit annoying when you find a book series that you'd like to read and then random books throughout the series is missing. Why would you get the second book in a serie without getting the first book??

I like this app but reasson behind I have given low rate is its notification worst thing about this app is it's notification feature it shows notification of some book without it's name but with synopsis of story and when we click on it to get that it redirects to the main page and then we are unable to find that

Excellent catalogue! Too bad there's no Android Auto integration. That would've made this app ten times more usable in the car. Where I listen almost all my audio books and podcasts.

Ok. As a player it's good, but to find a specific book - not so. And if you listen to a book series, forget to automatically be presented the next one when you've finished listening to a book - or even when choosing the author. Oftentimes you'll have to google the author and serie to get the book title(which you then find if searching by book title in Storytel!). And please, please explain why lump together sci-fi and fantasy in the same category!?

I love this app. This app make me fall in love with Audiobooks. It has millions of Audiobooks to explore and ebooks to read. Download this app now if you love listening to Audiobooks.

Honestly, such an affordable service. I have enjoyed 4 books in one month, whereas I haven't finished reading a self chosen book in the last year.

Great app and really good content! Will keep me happy for a long time. The search UX is not as intuitive as expected. Maybe a learning curve on my behalf.

Like a Spotify for audiobooks! Really good library and user friendly app! Wish more books were available in more places but you can always download before you go abroad.

Story tel is great. Perfect value for price. Few improvement: table of content need text as well. Time marker would best to put per section instead of entire book

Its a good app, but not all audio books have ebook and i didn't find all the books that i wanted to listen to. More function needed for sure.

Excellent collection, but app suggestions could be better based on what the user has been listening, rather than just shoving up trending titles.

I am very disappointed with this app. It looks way outdated and the user experience is subpar. No way to download a book, the progress bar get stuck half way.. :(

I've listened to three books this first week. I love it. Some books are still to have the listen feature.

Love this app, but the only improvement I'm dying to see, is to be able to cast this on my Google devices, like Google home speaker. Looking forward to this!

Lovely. Now I'm 'reading' more books than ever. Easy to use and works fine for me as I'm working alone in a kitchen. Great!

This is such a treasure app. Brings so many books at your finger tips. It's subscription is like wise investment which makes you better everyday.

Great books. Unlike audible where you need to buy books. This is a audiobook streaming service similar in a way to spotify, where you need to pay per month and not per book

I love the app, it works perfectly smooth on my device, would reccomend. Update: I am enjoying the app so far. Although I think it will be good to add more categories, for example: horror. I mean, there are books of this genre, but there is no such category so it's pretty hard to find books of this genre.

Overall a great experience! Better than Audible because one subscription gives you access to all books. In the latter, you are required to buy books after subscription and you only get one book free per month. The range of the books here is also amazing. My TBR list has lessened considerably after living with Storytel. This year itself I have gone through 13 books. For those skeptical about audio books: they might be odd at first but they are great once you learn to focus

Why have you removed the speed option?! I cant find it! Please fix it and I'll give you 5 stars. Edit: Thank you for responding. It was my mistake my phone was outdated. Im very sorry about my misjudgement. Your app is absolutely wonderful and I would love to recommend it to everyone. And i have. And i especially love the fact that we can control audio speed.

It's a very good application,if you want to hear more than read, that is good choice for you.

Great collection of books for affordable price. The player needs some improvements though. Predictive search and rewind are very slow. The player is impossible to close, even a finished book keeps popping up on the lock screen until you choose another book, and so on. Maybe this is done on purpose to keep me reading, but still quite annoying. Apart from that awesome service.

Great app, a lot of books and podcasts that I enjoy. Overall good experience.

Plenty of books to choose from! Great audio quality and many languages

Exceptional performance and quality without giving straining to the eyes.

My experience: the sleep timer is terrible. Tonight, I've been woken for the 3rd (!) time in 5 nights, because the sleep timer did not work correctly. I'm 100% certain that I've correctly started it, because I always wait for the timer to start ticking down. I'm talking about being woken up in the middle of the night at 3 am on a business day. Besides that, yesterday my book The Hunger Games suddenly got removed from my shelf without a trace, while the only thing I did with it is press play.

Overall good app. But it's missing some features that other audiobook apps have, which is what stops me from giving it 5 stars. Some of them: 1. A web app, to use on a PC. 2. Casting to a TV/Chromecast 3. A history of playback. eg.: 10.10.2019 15:16 started playing A Book, 15:57 paused A Book. Very helpful when falling asleep while listening. 4. Shake to reset sleep timer

1st time I saw add about this app and quickly installed the app. And get ready to listen and enjoy full story in audio format. But the here comes the twist of the developer.. without subscribed u cannot listen a story... So there is no free stories to listen... And there is monthly subscription of RS. 299. So highly disappointed ☹️😔😣

Its good. Sometimes clicking on rewind doesnt work. But the overall experience is very nice.

There is some improvements that you need to add. Subtitles content names

Ed: Looks like when playing the audiobooks on the tablet, I can't see options for variable speed, although your screenshots show the options. Looks like it may work only on phones. Please fix it. Update: Based on response from app developers, looks like the variable spped wont work for pre-Android 6. Using the app on iphone, windows 10 and other android devices. Great cross platform app. Hope they get more books.

1. The application does not support pdf files. Therefore there is no access to the pdf files which accompany some audio books - e.g. they contain the graphics from the printed version of the book, etc. 2. The audio books do not contain the titles of the chapters so it is difficult to go back to a chapter if one wants to listen to a particular section again.

It's a pretty decent app. I mean... it's good, BUT. They need to work on some stuff. Chapter options in audio are kinda wonky. Search option in ebooks are quite wonky. And they don't respond within the two day maximum they set if you mail them. Also sometimes they have author's filed under different variations of a name making it hard to find stuff. Their series are often not numbered. And I recently found a book missing a whole 3 chapters! No fix, just told me they will see about it.

I like the auto play,and the bookshelf,havent had a problem

First of all, English is the International language, though can't say I blame the app for not putting it as an option. Can't speak any of the other languages, could understand Spanish but not that confident. The screenshot pics and description were very promising though again, sad to say I couldn't experience it in person. How about not forcing to have an account in not our native languages?

I think it's the cheapest audiobook subscription service. You can download as many books as you can with just 299₹ per month. Also its has huge collection of books. And new books are added regularly.

Good, but I'm annoyed by the lack of a dark mode for the night. Also finding the next book in a series after you've finished one, is surprisingly cumbersome. It should be a one or two tap function.

Simply says Awesome.... Thanks for giving me feel like actually I'm reading book. In past used much more apps for audio book but they use bots for voice and I don't like it. My recommendations is to add more Marathi audio books in library. Much more people says about bugs. I think you will fix this soon but no major problems found thats why I'm fine with that. I thinks content is more important than interface. Thanks again.... For your great effort.

Donwloaded app, created username and password, thinking i can try before i buy. No you can not, you get tranfered towards a site for banking details. So its not try before you buy, its give us your email, and banking details so you can try it. And looking around i cant seem to find any clear option to delete the already registered account. So you have given away your email to them, and we al know what they can do with that. Deleted app because of this.

Quite the library of books but I would like a record of how many books you listened/read and how long you have listened on books

It is great. I love that you can set a sleep timer and lay in bed and slowly fall asleep.

So... Many... Bugs... Filtering your bookshelf works sometimes but most times it shows all books instead of the ones I've listened to or the ones I want to listen to. Additionally the app keeps flipping between displaying that the book Im listening to is downloaded or not, making me re-download the books multiple times. Get your app together!

Superb app! For book lovers I am a kind of person who love reading but never get quality time for reading my favorite books This app is just doing that by helping me to catch up and listening on favorite topics while I am driving, gyming or walking . I have been hooked to it since the voice over quality and modulation are very effective This does not give a effect of story narrating by a Bot, since it it actually narrated by some VO artist I have managed to complete 7-8 books within 3 week

I really love book. I have only one hobby to read a book. But due to work load I can't find time for reading. Now I m listen my favorite book while working. Its really awesome app.

This is the best audiobook app that Audible isn't! Huge collection of good books. Access is to the whole collection and not just 2 or 4 books a month like audible. Highly recommended if you are interested in books. The app needs some work to make it more usable but the service is unmatched!

Hello Storytel team, I would like to suggest one thing from my side. Avoid showing duplicate books for one book.(for eg. If we search for Think and Grow rich book, it shows many books reflecting the same name and same author.). Place only the one original authorised book for a particular name & its author.

So far a good app but it needs a better search recommendations may also be wonky

Some bugs like bookmarking and offline downloads should be improved.

Definitely worth the subscription, you get access to countless books and audio book. I myself am listening to the Harry Potter series that I had never gotten to reading. I can do this easily while working or travelling. A great subscription!

Audio books are like 4 to 8 hrs . If it stopped in half , once again we have to listen from beginning that is very tough task . Please do something on this issue. If we listen audio of book, if we pause , the audio is playing from beginning .

I do adore your app, as it allows me to read-listen more books than I could do before. The only thing that sometimes lowers the usability of the app is absence of time codes. If you had a list of time codes for book chapters, that would be very nice of you.

Great audio quality on all books i have read, as well as the selections of books. Only thing keeping me from putting a 5 star review is that many book series arent categorized as such. Needing the user to go Into the authors page to find sequels.

A good app for having audBooks, but its widget in notification bar is sometimes non customizeable & navigating forwading etc is a bit irritating. It can be like any music player we use and if we can have writing below the player. It will really be good.

I think an improvement would be to have an offline mode. Weird behavior sometimes with downloaded audiobooks when connected. The book goes to the end for no reason.

Using storytel for More than 3 months. It has good collection of audiobooks. Its hard to find Marathi books online but then you have storytel app where you can get hold of new as well as some popular books that too in audio format. Just plugged in and relax. Suggestion -> App UI can be improved 😀

The only problem is its price, they should decrease it and limit to number of books per month or something, other than that pretty good collection, but they should be competitive against audiobook by having better and cheaper schemes.

Totally loved it. It's worth the money. I listen to the audio books everyday everywhere I go.! A good internet and headphones are enough to enjoy and relish in the beauty of this app.

Loving it. I used audible before and it was a waist of money. Here I can listen to as many books a month as I like. Wish I had found this a long time ago. I have been telling everyone about Storytel and will keep sharing this amazing site.

My account is been charged Inr 299 + Vodafone operator charges INR 50 from the last 2 months but am unable to use the app .. Email support is very poor .. let me know how to unsubscribe so that I don't waste my money for which I get no service.. 21-10-2019 Admin please note : I have written review after getting no help from your email support which is clearly mentioned in my review

Excellent. Though I wish there were more options when setting playback speed. 5% or 10% steps would make for far better adjustments.

Something is really wrong with the app. For some reason is doesn't accept any payment options.

Good application, i feel it should have more speed options like Audible. Also the book Aswatthama by Sanjay Sonawani is incomplete. Could you please check. Also it would be helpful if you choose to write review for books.

I really liked this app. Helps with a lot of learning on the GO whenever wherever. Have been hearing the audio books since some time now. Just try and add more productive books, NY bestsellers, Entrepreneurial biographies etc

At about 6 months of use, it's as solid as it gets. Although, I wish books in other languages weren't region locked. Still 5/5

Better than Audible since it lets you access books in all languages, and as somebody who speaks multiple languages that's important for me. It's still missing a few titles, but all in all it's a great audiobook app!

Pretty useful app but it opens and closes itself sometimes.

The interface is quite simple and books are available on various different categories. Text highlighting option is not available, it would be great to have that feature as well.

I really enjoy this app , it offers a lot of books with my native language (Arabic) with very fresh UI/UX I hope i could listen to all of my favorite books But it is all about time management 😔 I hope if they can decrease the monthly fees in the developing countries like mine ;)

Love it! I think it needs more books added.

Most practical app i have ever found on app store for audiobooks..please ensure you make audiobook as well as ebook together..and along with if you make available something which will improve vocabulary then i think you guys would be unstoppable..

Will automatically debit amount to your card. I had uninstalled the app next day. But was charged for the month, after the free period was over. The app does not have option to unsubscribe even. Use less app. On writing to them on email i got refund of my amount.

Great experience even though I miss that the latest page read is not marked anywhere so if you move by mistake there is no way to go back exactly where you were last. I would add a visible bookmark for "latest Page read" or similar.

Lacking widget. Lacking books I really want.(Ofc it is not possible to have all due to rights and such bought by Audible for example.) Some settings aswell that other audiobookapps have. Over all a good app. But lacking in some regards.

4 stars because I sincerely believe that it could be better. You're doing an amazing job, but a few tweaks to the player and adding more books will make the experience superb. Other than that, amazing app.

Awesome but needs to add more audio books

Worse than Mofibo- App doesn't close, when asked..burning a lot of battery..Poorer search function. Review book is now 1-5 stars, which is ridiculous, as it is a book app, meaning that users should be supposed to be able to read.

As much I am glad there are so many good books I want to listen to in Bulgaria, I find it different and uneasy to listen to the narration; I really hope that you improve Bulgarian narration in future!

Helpful indeed. One can easily do tasks that requires less concentration while listening an audiobook. Deal in this platform is quite readonable.

Great app with adjustable speed, but not a perfect app. The browsing is counter intuitive and the availability is limited.

Amazing experience , too good sound quality and fantastic storytelling

This has really helped me relieve boredom when I'm out in the car or cycling/walking. I even find myself listening to books instead of watching TV. Great app

Sleep timer doesn't work. Can't open the player by clicking the notification bar. Opening the player while in the app takes two clicks. Can't rewind fast by mashing the back button.

Do not go for this app ... They are asking for your card details and deducting Rs.1 from your account without any intimation ... And there is no any option to delete your card details ... Pls be carefull !!!

Great books, but difficult to browse, I never know which part of series is next. It was difficult to decide what to listen, more guidance would be good

App is functioning ok. Sometimes dropping out. Not 100% functioning with downloads. I thought to have some books for my trip but when starting they seem to be empty. No idea why

Good content, app is mediocre. No Chromecast support, no Android Auto. Playing kids books is a hassel as they often want to listen to the same book over and over, but the app want you to rate the book at the end and move on to a new book.
