False advert I was under the impression the free trial would be free. Now I'm stuck with Harry potter and no way to navigate this impossible app. Boo audible. Based on this experience I won't be paying for your services.
It'll just randomly fast forward and then when I hit play to stop it, it'll keep skipping 30 seconds every few seconds.... and every freaking time I have to restart my phone.
Why on earth do some developers just keep putting more crap into their apps, when it's not even remotely needed. Just keep updating the app for bug fixes and new versions of Android, everyone would love it. I'm going to roll back to using version 1.6. That was the last stable version Audible had. No spontaneously deleting books or random restarts. No ridiculous permissions. And an actual way to quit the app once you're done so it won't drain your battery.
Best audio book app ever! Having been an avid audio book listener since the age of books on tape, I have been through many services. Audible gives fantastic customer service. The prices are very fair. I also love the playback speed setting, something they have perfected far above any competition. And the new playback speed adjuster is even better!
I have loved Audible since I started subscribing in 2011. It is a great way to listen to books. I have recommended Audible to many friends. Audible has listened to my request (thank you!!!) and added flexible playback speeds, automatic rewind after an interruption, and automatic rewind after stopping/pausing. I have also requested user configuration of the rewind time, but I guess that Audible figures that complicates the user experience. Audible has improved by listening to their users! When I listen to non-Audible audio books, I love Listen Audiobook Player. It has the features that I have requested from Audible (so that is the source of my suggestions).
Easy to it use. UX could improve. E.g. the book purchase experience is a little sucky as the mobile site doesn't seem designed for the in app windowed browser and there's too many steps to review books and checkout. It's easier to go to the site in a browser. Otherwise stable. Could group books by author.
