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 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.
Audible has made a massive difference to my lifestyle, I love it! Accompanies me when I walk the dog, when I cook dinner, at the beach etc. So very easy to use, and I have listened to inumerable books since using it, including some which I struggled to read (eg Virginia Woolf who employs stream of consciousness prose is easier heard than read).
If your're new to audible I really recommend The Hundred Year Old Man. A bumbling hilarious galavant of a book. And the guy who reads it has the perfect voice, capturing the innocent naivety of the hero. You also get a free book each month, making the fee very reasonable.
Bug fixes and enhancements.
