I'm going to try to be as brief as possible here, and yet still cover the salient points . . . .

I want to state my regret for making any post of any Christianaudio.com audiobook, especially more recent ones.

Just a while ago, I tried to listen to a Christianaudio.com audiobook, just as I have done before. I kept having issues downloading it. So, I tried a second one--same result. Finally, after some digging around, I found out that they now require a particular _app_--a Google one--for a person to be able to listen to their audiobooks.

Oops, I must have missed the email, that they sent to us, informing us of this (unwanted) change.

The main problem about that is that the app demands access to "photos/media/files." But, wait, it also wants access to my "device I.D. and _[phone] call_ information," too. There's much more. And Google/Christianbook.com has the unmitigated gall to put a link, at the bottom of at least one of their pages, that says "privacy." I wonder if there is actually anything on the webpage that that links to! Have they left any area where we stiil would have any privacy??????

It seems that there is a statement in the Good Book--Jesus made it, in fact--I'm paraphrasing: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Christianbook.com, is this the way that you'd like to be treated?

I _promise_ that if the situation is as I've understood it to be, and as long as that situation exists, I will _never_ make a post of anything from Christianbook.com anymore.

I just logged onto my account and was able to download my earliest and latest audiobooks. Not sure why you are having a problem...

Good news. I hope that things stay that way.

I should have mentioned that I'm using Android.

When I couldn't download the two audiobooks, I went looking around the Christianaudio.com website. Among the enlightening webpages was this one: https://support.christianaudio.com/h...bile_site=true (sorry if the formatting is poor or non-existent--my real computer is still bricked, and I'm still having to use a smartphone). Reading the instructions for Android, it seems that a person using that OS has no option but to use the app now.

Instructions on audio playback are at https://support.christianaudio.com/h...bile_site=true. The only one that I read was the one that applies to the Android smartphone.

A lot of what I learned was also from the information provided along with the Google app for Christianaudio, found on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps).

I notice that you use an Android tablet. Did you try using it?

Maybe Christianaudio is rolling out the changes in stages. All that I really can do is to share with you my experience.

If I had a device that was not (yet) affected, I would be backing up the MP3's.
