I occasionally want to stream the books I've purchased in the past from Audible; but they require that all books be downloaded. These files are massive. There are times I want to listen to a specific chapter in a book I purchased years back. I don't want to download the whole book or even half the book, then go back and delete it. Haven't these guys heard of the cloud? The Public Libraries use the far superior Overdrive, which gives you a choice to stream or download. Way more elegant interface, too.
I am a Canadian, I signed up for the subscription years ago. I find the app great and the material vast. I am an audible fan through and through. My only grief is that my subscription cost $14.00 (around $20.00 when exchanged to my dollar) for 1 credit. Many of the books offered are priced around the $10-$13 mark. It would be nice if the cost of the 1 credit (subscription) was comparable. Often my 20 some dollar credit buys a $10 book. Perhaps the pricing could reflect your region, or have a savings associated with the subscription. Otherwise, Audible is awesome!
I have really enjoyed this app for the most part. The issues I've had are more for the tech department and they've not been able to help. I did the new update today and it's ok but not crazy about it, had trouble finding my wish list, but finally... (big eye roll). If not for the tech issues I would give a 5 rating.
The latest update totally messed up the search engine. The search results (ww2 books) brings up only a small fraction of what was available before. Searching titles by name doesn't even locate the book, including ones already in my library. Only able to purchase books on my wish list because I can't find them otherwise. Please fix.
I absolutely love this app. Its my favorite app. So easy to use, convenient and well designed. I use it everyday and havent had a single complaint whatsoever in the entire two years or so that I've used it. I have been able to read/listen to so many books that I otherwise wouldnt have the time to sit down and read. Just connect my phone to my car and listen to someone read an entire book to me while I drive. Highly recommend!!
Audible's App has evolved greatly since I started using it years back. I use it every day on the road and I applaud Audible for such outstanding service and dedication to my needs. Audible, you are the best! What a great business model. Update: 3-18-17 Audible continues to evolve for the better and continues to be my favorite app ever. They recently started binding finished books to accounts! No more hours of marking books finished when you get a new phone!
