Storytel Sweden AB part of our Books & Reference and have average installs from 500000 to 1000000. Last Update Oct. 17, 2016. Google play rating is 83.9237. Current verison is Varies with device. Actual size 0 bytes.
The seek bar doesn't work and crashes This makes it impossible to check out books in order to decide if you want to listen to them. Trying to skip back and forth in a book crashes the app and the Android as well. Skipping several minutes back to remind you where in the story you are is not possibl. It is a shame that a buggy software is ruining a good service.
Very Good! It has everything I want but it is too expensive if you compare with Spotify and netflix osv.
Seems like the best price for audiobooks. But the app is not that good. It seems to lack features. You would expect a better app for something that costs 15 a month.
Great Good app, rewinding stilk needs to work. But the service is fantastic overall.
Fubar login You offer the opportunity to login with Facebook. When I do this I remain in a state where the app asks me to log in when I enter settings. This option should not be available when it is not working. One Plus One, 4.4.4
One word: Awesome! The only downside to Storytel is that there are a couple of books that I am missing, not many though. Fantastic! You get a fun way to read books and a language learning app in one. So, as previously stated, this is awesome!
Close but no sigar Compared to audible this just isn't good enough. Crashes often. Forgets where in a book I am. No chapters so it's difficult to track back to where I was. Combined with weird fast forward/back it's a headache. Doesn't autostop when I unplug my headphones. No "whispersync" functionality. Plus side: Norwegian books.
Finally! I used to be pretty disappointed with this app. But, after the latest update it is finally working as it should!
Can be even better Add the option remove/delete to bookshelf. Sometimes I put a book on the bookshelf, but later I don't want to read it. I don't want to click on "finished book" then but simply remove the book from the list. Also it will be great if on the controls there is an option to go back to beginning of chapter. Very good that you're expanding your collection.
Great service, poor application The service is great, but the app contains a lot of bugs and is not stable. One of the most annoying things is when the device is locked. The playing controls are not always there. And when I pause it, it disappears. Another is when I am changing the position of playback by pressing rewind button, the time counter showing not correct values, same happening with the service icon, it is blinking, it seems notification is not handled correctly by the app.
Great app great books It's a great up letting me listen to audio books on the go. Love that it synchronizes bookmarks across different devices!
Not working in any way, browsing categories, looking at books, searching authors, all resulting in "the app has stopped working" been like this since I tried to use it for the first time 5 days ago.
App too primitive Update: Now it stopped working. I get 'something went wrong' no matter what book I use. Download doesnt work either. No changes after today's update. I consider a request for some refund.
When it worked it was great. At first it worked. Easy to use. Good narrators. Now it has stopped working. Whatever I do I get the notification that the program is not responding. I tried to uninstal and reinstall, but nothing seems to work. UNFORTUNATLY I'll have to cancel my subscription.
Better and improved The app is getting better, there is still gaping holes in the inventory though.
Greta app, super easy and convinient. Minor bugs now and then bring down the grade to four.
Good Pls remove the 4 books offline limit and put in place proper space management function like any other app (for example limit how much MB it can download or how many MB should be left free).
Needs more work Random crashes. Looses track of progress. Expensive.
storytell I had some issues falling asleep at night and a friend told me to try audio books it's so relaxing to just listen instead of reading which get tiresome for my eyes. I'll recommend this site to my friends as well. Only thing I wish could improve is fastforwarding it's tricky to find were I left off sometimes.
The no.1 and the Bestest. Simply because the unlimited books it offers. No, its not expensive!? you can download 5 books each time, easily delete books you already read and you can bundle your bookshelf of books you like to read at later time. The search engine is massive. Unlike the other apps (like audible), it only offer 1 book each month and for a price of 14.95us$ monthly that is very expensive! Thats why i changed to storytel. All my colleagues at work are using it, and its from them i picked it up. 5 stars! ?????
Love this app It makes my time in the car to a joyful jurney
Awesome Great books for a fair monthly price unlike audible
Doesn't work since the latest update
Good but not finished Good app, missing some features and the library is rather small, all books are not working well either. Some of them have repeating content. Also sometimes it starts multiple instances on the same device
Would like Harry Potter to get on the app but otherwise good
Please add a fade out I like the app but please add a fade out for the sleep timer. This is so abrupt.
Works Great I enjoy being able listen to whichever books I want without paying per book like in other services. Not sure if it works out cheaper but it feels better. Would like a family subscription option.
Arek Need some improvements but I Love it :)
Could have a larger database of available books now that a paid subscription is required. Also, the player crashes. Has the features it needs and a fair book collection though, so I'm quite satisfied.
Works good even offline.
Nice selection but no chspters Audiobooks are not divided into chapters. So if it's 24 hour long book and you accidentally hit the timeline:good luck
Works good. Remembers where you are and offlineing a book worked just fine, I had an issue getting the offline book to start but it turned out that skipping a couple of seconds from the start fixed that problem. If you intend to listen to a lot of books this is probably the app for you, 169sek/month is a bit steep for casual listening, but you don't have to buy individual books with the subscription so that's really nice.
Broken Unfortunately, the app is broken. It does download a book, but it still streams it and gives the option of downloading (again). It does not display current book. Even when I am in the middle of one. The book is not divided into chapters. Every time I open it it closes, but it always open the second time. There is also no option of changing listening speed, but this is minor compared to the rest of the issues.
Nice to listen - hard to navigate Fast forward and skip chapters would be great to have. Also I miss the function you have in the iOS app to listen in fast-forward mode, this can make me hear more books in the same amount of time.
Much much better Much better than last time I tested. Now it works as expected but there is still room improvements
Good service, app needs some work Needs a speed adjust option. it also freezes sometimes. But most importantly, the audiobooks need CHAPTERS. Some people like to read and listen to a book, so without chapters it's pretty much impossible to find where you left off.
Meh I love the service but the app really isn't that great. It takes a long time to load when unpausing and you can't pre-buffer, just download. The bigger issue though is that the sync between the website and the app doesn't work - sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. That, combined with the very bad interface for fast-forwarding or jumping in the track means that every time I return to listening on mobile after listening at the computer is a frustrating business.
It's work very well. I love it.
Works quite well The app works quite well. Love the option for downloading audio books and that I can un- and reinstall without loosing where I was in the books. There's a decent selection of book (I'm only using it for audio books) but of course I would love an even larger one. Especially in sci-fi and fantasy.
Chromecast support and it gets 5 stars.
Store is good, but that's it. The store is very good with solid recommendations, but the player, which is the feature you use the most is very lacking. You cannot get a overview of the chapters and you can only jump forward "blindly", it only displays the entire book, like 40 hours... This makes it VERY confusing and frustrating to use.
Could steal some features from Audible Audio speed, chapters, and widget, unfortunately all missing. Dutch translation is not complete (certain areas within the app). Also, the number of titles are fairly limited compared with Audible. On the other hand, it's cheaper. So we'll see...
Fantastic, but it needs a widget... Badly!
Works perfect Love the simplicity of the app.
Horrible navigation and ugly design, severe lack of features, bookmark issues Search doesn't allow for error. Browsing available titles is cumbersome, front page is ugly. Audio books have no chapters. Can't choose where to store downloads. UI doesn't conform to Material Design, design is bad. Ugly icons. Lacks basic playback features, like adjustable speed. No Chromecast or Bluetooth support. Doesn't support multiple accounts. Bookmarks doesn't appear when offline. New bookmarks added while offline doesn't merge with existing bookmarks when going back online.
Very useful app. It made me read several books in a row! There is one major downside though: the android version lacks of the "speed up reading' option. Which really annoys me, because it takes longer to read a book than what could be possible with this app. Is there some other way I can do that before they update this feature? If there is, let me know.
Nice but could be better Listening to audio books works flawless, but it's hard to browse and find books. The sync between mobile and computer (browser) doesn't quite work and the monthly cost is quite extreme..
Some things could be better, the interface, bookshelf, the English selection needs to improve, moving by chapters not only by seconds, and the sound...... it's horrible at times! Need to be able to tweak it a lot!, like many other apps, pls. But overall it's good.
Nice but has some down point The only thing I'm missing is to be able to skip through chapters, in stead of just per 15 seconds
Really basic app Come on, storytel.. put a small percentage of what you spend on advertising on your app instead. I checked you out a couple of years ago, and I've got to say I'm impressed with your library in my genre. But your pricey fee in combination with the lack of everything that makes an audibookplayer good put me off. An example: your sleep function doesn't fade to quiet. Why? Ought to be simple, which means you don't even try. Once again I'm going to opt out. Hope to see you later.
Need more titles Needs a lot more books, better design, some bugs when you try to pause from the lockscreen. Chapters would be great.
Can't login Can't't login with Facebook and also can't test without making an account and filling out my info.
Great audio book app Easy to use, good selection of books.
Ok Does what i need it to!
Great service. But the app need much work.
Enjoyable and sufficient
Bad design and buggy Standard language in Scandinavian (don't exactly know what lang). Unable to change without logging in. Trying to login with Facebook gives an error despite of multiple tries. (galaxy s7)
Amazing Best anti stress app when driving!
Fantastic Totally brilliant.
Great selection of books Many great books to choose from. I have been using it for a few days, haven't tried downloading audiobooks to my SD card (I don't have much free space ) , but streaming works perfectly. I am addicted!
Great selection of books but bad functions A function split the download offline would be VERY helpful! Tried putting on my phone and it blocked everything else.... also a better way to get through the audio (fast forward, progress, chapter parts,....) would be helpful.
Good service, crappy application Good set of books, but the application is really bad. No snooze function worthy of it's name, bad buffering, random jumping, no jump locking, bad forward/reverse . Please look at smart audiobook player and it's features on how to implement an audiobook player.
Good application with many books
Speed control required Used to have iPhone, now android. App differs a lot and only in iPhones favor. Speed x 1.25 is very important to implement as some readers read in slow motion. Also, if I pause for a while the app does not restart when pressing play button on headset, have to dig the phone out and press on screen. Iphone-app could pause for days.
Service is perfect App is really great. Just very few glitches.
Great app. Wide range of books.
Good product! Works just the way I hoped it would. Although I sometimes have the feeling I am missing out on some parts of the audiobooks. Maybe it would be a good idea to play back the last played two seconds, just to remind you that you are not missing out.
Very good Love the app, a lot of great titles. Always use it on the way to work. Makes being in a traffic jam great!
Great app! Used it one week now and no complaints!
Good app A little hard to navigate tough.
Listening while using Google maps It's really annoying that the app doesn't automatically pause when Google maps gives a spoken direction
Good, but not yet great Needs more books and certainly a better ux; let me save small bites, sound to text, highlight certain time bites based on graph of story
Its a really good app. This helps me combat my anxiety problems and it helps me relax when i go to sleep. My mother recommended this to me.
Good app! I'd like to have better chapter by chapter navigation and more books with both audio and text version - will help me learn Swedish!
Not impressed It is unstable, crashes often, and does not save position if not online.
Good quality books Awesome books for a decent price! Better than amazon version for sure!
Infinity stars, not 5 Superb don't listen to the bad comments listen to this ,suuppper,¡!!!!!!!!!! my whole family uses it it is super cool no words to describe it
Inferno Excellent rendition. Moving dialogue
A lot of books for my taste. And app works without any bugs. Love it.
Love it! Great selection, user friendly app.
Good selection, for the most part. A good and broad selection in general. However, there are some weird omissions such as Give & Take by Adam Grant when his second book Originals is available. But all in all enjoying the app.
Fabulous Really like this app, would like it even more with even more good books and better function for backing or moving forward in the current book by about 5 minutes. Not 15 seconds or half an hour.
Horrible navigation and ugly design, severe lack of features, bookmark issues Search doesn't allow for error. Browsing available titles is cumbersome, front page is ugly.

Loved it At first there was some issues about the books on my library Even after removing them ,They were the first to show in my library. I contacted Storytel and they have been very good and solved the issue. Unfortunately my Storytel app on my Desktop is not working.
Needs optimalising and better features As many others have stated the app lacks in stability (will often play when you pause it and automatically start and stop) and it lacks some key features which I believe an app like this should have and furthermore as a programmer shouldn't be that difficult to implement. Fade out sleep function and speed change isn't that hard to put in when the basics are there, but I'd love to be able to navigate by chapters in the app. Also the price isn't at all too steep as many state. Way better than audible
Works perfectly It has a more complete library than when I tried it last year. I unsubscribed because they didn't have the books I wanted to listen to, but now they do. App works just as you expect it to.
Loved the collection and the joy listening books Not happy with the app in general. Even when i press pause, story continues even after you see play sign! Consumes too much battery even in standby!
