I love Audible but I really wish there were more non-fiction books in member deals. It's always Sci-fi or crime novels. Its probably true that the majority of your members prefer fiction I get that but surely at least one category a month can be selected for non-fiction listeners? Sometimes I have the odd £5/6 to spend whilst waiting for credit but there's never anything to choose in the deals as I very rarely listen to fiction. Just a thought. Otherwise perfect 5*
Amazing app, definitly worth the $15 a month. I didnt know every month you got a free credit for any audio book you could want. This was perfect for getting some 50 hour King books to last the month compared to 10 hour books thatd only last a few days. Ive never been an avid reader but audiobooks are completly different. I went from reading maybe a book in 3 years to 20+ books in a year. I would recommend it definitly if youre not into reading but love a good story. If you can listen with headphones at work, this is a lifesaver and will make the hours pass by.
The app works as it is supposed to, and the selection of books is satisfactory, but I REALLY wish the chapters said the actual title of the chapter, not 1,2,3 ect. Also, I tried to cancel my subscription a while ago, and thought everything was taken care of, but later found out I had still been being billed. The positive side is you get one credit per month, up to 6 credits at a time. Most books are one credit so I'll get a few more books and cancel again and still be able to access the books I've purchased. Lesson is, make sure you cancel your membership properly.
It's great. Books upload quickly, doesn't jam up my storage space... I love it. I really enjoy the scope of authors and titles the app has to offer. I don't believe there's been a title or genre I've yet to have trouble finding. One of my main joys is settling down after the day is done, relaxing w my pup and listening to one of my selections. If it lulls me to sleep, its no matter as it's very easy to find my last marker. Excellent app!!
Skip chapter buttons seem too sensitive and get accidentally pressed a lot! Would prefer those buttons to be double tap to trigger. Also the scan mechanism is too sensitive and short. Needs better resolution to be useful or shorter, sub chapter markers/keyframes. Car mode is welcome addition that helps stop accidental button pushes
All the books that were on my Cloud, as I had to temporarily remove the books for storage purposes, are GONE with no explanation. In the past I was able to remove a book temporarily and then redownload it and my bookmarks and everything would be the same as before I removed it. Now they're gone. I had spent quite a bit of money on some very good and enjoyable books, and when I go back to the store, it only gives me the option to buy them again, not redownload them. In addition to this, I've had books that un-downloaded themselves for no reason and were on my cloud, even though I had already downloaded them before and never removed them myself. Now, how can I be sure that any of my books will stay on my phone? Absolutely ridiculous.
Access multi-part titles and more subscriptions through an improved view in the library.
