The app is amazing! It works great when you're on long drives. It even pauses when the phone/ app notifications go off, which is very handy when using GPS. The skip back and skip forward buttons are handy too. I only wish it also had the graphic audio/ radio plays available. Where they have sound effects and multiple voice actors.
This is my favorite thing in the world. I love books but work with my hands all day, so it's just too perfect! There are so many kinds of books(great for me cuz I have very diverse tastes) and the readers really bring them to life. It is more than worth it and now that I have it, I can't live without it!
My most useful app. I listen to books while driving. Makes London driving a pleasure!! Have been known to make a detour if I'm at a really good bit and need extra time on the road!!! Only niggle. And not with the app but rather in the reading. I know unabridged means staying true to the written word, but occasionally it would be useful to let listeners know if the book moves to another element of the story. Easy to spot when reading (a gap with an asterisk, for example) but can be momentarily confusing when just listening!!!
I love Audible, and highly recommend it, but I do have my complaints about the app. The library screen isn't set up very well, in my opinion, it's to hard to tell witch book is witch when looking through it, particularly in a series of books. I'll get a full series then get confused witch book is book one and which is all the rest. I've had multiple times where I started listening to one book then later I find out it wasn't the first one. Simply put I think they need to change the look of the app so I can read the full title and see the full cover when I'm looking through my library. But again Audible itself is great and I highly recommend the use of it.
They recently added the ability to purchase audiobooks directly from the app. Super easy. Now the app is complete. Love the service and the app is great. Highly recommend if you have a commute or walk a lot. You can get through a lot of content in a short period of time. I hate reading bc I find it boring but this is the perfect alternative.
I love reading but my life is so busy! Audible allows me to listen while I work, garden, paint and drive. Without this great app i'd be missing out on my favourite authors latest books and great for educational listens. Makes long journeys less boring for the kids as they have their audible books downloaded too, no more car sickness whilst reading.
