  • Changed my listening life!

    By GabbyOlsen
    I like the app, it works perfectly for me. However, I only use it for self-help books. I like to listen to them in the gym, in the car, on my bike. They really put the content in my mind. I used Hibooks to listen to it during my commute. Like that I could read the book when I'm at home and listen to it in the car / walking. Took me about a week (9 days) to finish 1200 pages like that. The choice of books is enormous, varied and mostly well read by household names. They have been my companions while waiting for delayed planes. When running I increase the speed of the reading, whilst driving I slow it back to normal speed. I've used the sleep timer on it too, it's handy more for ensuring you stop at end of chapters as I wouldn't want to fall asleep and miss part of the book! The price is next. It's amazingly cheap, end of story... No really, the pricing is so low, that I don't even know how they make money. I’ve got young kids who absolutely love audio books and Hibooks has a truly incredible collection as well as an amazing range for adults. There’s always a good offer or discounts so you can easily grow your library without spending much extra beyond your yearly sub rate. Hibooks has changed my listening life as you can listen to a book when doing 101 things! So well done, and keep the books coming!

    I used this app later 2018 and loved it. The monthly subscription was awful and totally worth it, considering I could listen to roughly 3 books a week depending on length and how much I listened. I had to cancel my account for financial reasons. Decided to download again since I’m able to enjoy the subscription again. $39.99 for a year isn’t bad. That, I didn’t mind. What I did mind was having to pay the yearly subscription then buy coins in order to listen to the books I wanted. 100,000+ books available for coin purchase and only 5,000 for unlimited listening? Granted 5,000 is a lot but how many would I really be interested in listening too. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want to pay a subscription THEN have to pay for the books I wanna hear. I enjoyed the old format WAY more.
  • Not at all like Netflix

    So this is not at all like Netflix because you pay a monthly fee with Netflix and then you get to watch unlimited shows and movies that are currently on the platform as part of your monthly fee, you charge a monthly fee and then on top of that we have to buy the books we want to listen too. That’s freaking crazy and you have the books on there that you can listen to for free as your unlimited listening books. This is a scam!!!!! Not even remotely happy at all about this app!!
  • Lee Nez series by David and Aimee Thurmond

    I love anything written by David and Amie Thurlo and have been reading them for many years; I was glad to see them on hibooks as an audible. However it is very disconcerting (after all of the geographical, historical, and cultural aspects of correctness by the authors) to have the reader not pronouncing words correctly !Most of the Spanish words in this book are not pronounced correctly, sad. I would’ve ranked these books a five, however the incorrect pronunciation makes it only worth a three rating!
  • Money well spent

    I currently have other subscriptions but I absolutely LOVE this one. It has been the best money spent so far. Right now I’m listening to the Callaways family series by Barbara Freethy. Omg I’m on book 11, I absolutely love them. Great selection. Keep up the good work.

    Not unlimited. They make you get something they call coins to be able to even listen to any of the good books. So it’s $6 to listen to free books you can get on any other app + whatever you’re willing to spend on coins. NOT WORTH IT. I recommend Scribd, that is truly unlimited, great app for under $11.

    I used this app earlier when the rates were $10/month for unlimited audio books. I absolutely loved this concept, but went to audible for some titles Hibooks didn’t have . After revisiting the app and seeing they have broadened their selection by a lot, I was about to restart my membership, but was very very disappointed to find out that they had changed their membership rates.

    I loved this app. Finish a book search for a new one. I was even willing to wait the countdown to get a book from same author. But coins!! No way. I will listen to authors I don’t know will even listen to genres I don’t normally if the description is interesting but to be forced to do that and to have to pay on TOP OF THE SUBSCRIPTION! That’s too much. Leave me at $9.99/ mo with the freedom to search and choose as I wanted. So, I will cancel my subscription and go back to searching for another app. Or just go back to the library. That’s free........ Update : I cancelled my subscription but then renewed only because I had downloaded a series that I love and have listened to over and over and don’t want to lose. I still dislike the buying coins thing, but I also dislike Audible (which is more money ) limiting how many books per $$ tier. I am a voracious listener. It’s my companion when I’m doing chores or resting. So I don’t mind being slightly limited as in the count down you used to do. I’ll still keep the app- until something better comes along or my library goes back online again.
  • Used to love this service...not so much now

    When I first started using this service it was formatted like a netflix for audio books. You paid one monthly fee and had access to the entire library. Now you have to pay a yearly fee AND pay for tokens to buy books. I was in the middle of a series when I discovered the change. $30 for the membership plus almost $20 to buy the next book in the series. Needless to say I’m very disappointed in the changes.
