  • No valid support email

    I am trying to cancel my subscription/free trial because I accidentally subscribed and the email this company gives for customer support is not a valid email and there is no point of contact. I assume it’s meant to confuse people and be able to charge them for their services. I do not like when companies make it so difficult or confusing to cancel your account so they can most likely confuse their customer and end up charging them. Not happy with this site and app.
  • Watch out before signing up for a trial

    BE AWARE Im a college student who likes to read. I saw Instaread and wanted to give a try so I signed for a trial. I was always planning that if I liked it i would go for the monthly subscription which is around $9. Well, it turns out that it charged me $90 dollars for a year round subscription that I didn’t sign for, and plus that, they don’t even have a customer service where I can try to fix this problem. I cancelled the subscription and it didn’t refund the money. It said: your subscription will still valid for 1 year. I haven’t see any similar online scams recently. They don’t refund, they don’t even switch from yearly to monthly. Once you paid, the money is gone. I needed that money for a college textbook. So BE AWARE

    Although looking forward to an update that prevents skipping around to random chapters during lock, unlock and poor Internet connections (even with previously downloaded audio).
  • Well worth it - Saves me time and money.

    I have this habit of buying books I don’t read. Mostly that’s because I fall in love with the idea of a book, and I don’t want to forget to read it. As you can imagine that get’s expensive and time consuming. Instaread helps me “vet” out books I think I might like without actually buying them.
  • Misleading Free Trial Waiting for Refund

    By Brygs76
    Went to try the free trial in the app and was immediately charged for the year. I immediately cancelled the subscription and am waiting to hear about being refunded. On any other app I have tried with a free week trial you are not charged until the trial expires. I feel they were misleading. You’ve been warned
  • Great app

  • Book Summaries are Worthless

    By Aaron_Esq
    I was very excited about this app. I read a lot, and wanted to be able to listen to book summaries while commuting and exercising. Unfortunately, the summaries are terrible. They are too short, too general and vague, and spoken much too quickly. I listened to five book summaries, and got very little out of it. Very disappointing. It’s okay if you want to get the general idea of a book to decide if you want to buy it or not. But you won’t glean much content from these summaries. Just canceled my subscription.
  • Nothing to Try!

    You says it’s 7-Day FREE and you charge me $89 per year well in advanced? It’s a hack. If we like it we buy it, but don’t create unnecessary process to cancel later (most forget) while trying free trial. Overall it’s a bad billing practice. I have no option to remove this app right away. Hope you create a better experience.

    Great for that book you’ve always wanted to read but felt like you don’t have the time. Awesome value. I use Instaread while taking public transit and I’m so glad I found it ☺️
