We support the authors and publishers who create the content in our app. They write and publish books for a living so they need to earn their salaries. During the last months, we have been providing Kitab Sawti for free as a test in order to collect feedback from users, writers and publishers. With that feedback, we have been able to create the best Arabic audiobook service there is, and with the best books by fantastic writers.
Now the test period is over and the writers and publishers must get paid, and that’s why we now require a subscription to get access to all content and features. Of course, running a business like Kitab Sawti also comes with costs so a part of the cost for a subscription goes to Kitab Sawti in order to keep improving the service and add more books to the catalogue.
