I listen to Game of Thrones to and from work and the commute couldn't be more entertaining. I really enjoy hearing the books masterfully narrated on an app that was so smooth. Big plus for the sleep time since sometimes a good British accent is all it takes to send you off. The beta version is a tad glitchy but just untoggle that player and the original player offers seamless streaming.
Great books on tape but the success of the audiobook is directly related to the narrator and his or her ability to make different voices for the different characters in the book. I am currently listening to a book that has a series of books related to the whole novel. The series has seven books in it. For the first 4 audio books the narrator's were different each time but very very good. The fifth book which I am listening to now has a narrator that is not so good so it's not as enjoyable as it could be. Nevertheless the narrator's make-or-break the audiobook.
Brilliant app. Been using it a while now with no problems. Only two downsides are that you only get one credit per month unless you pay the full cost of one monthly subscription again. And that I need to have internet connection to listen to the books I've already downloaded and paid for :-/
I found that if you don't use a credit within a certain amount of time you lose credits so I ordered 2 audios to bring me up to date and cancelled my subscription. They continued to take money from my PayPal account! So now I have problems with both PayPal and Audible. I find Amazon to be highly superior...
Good app and catalogue. Found in fact because audible didn't have what I wanted! The player is solid, though I did lose my position on the first listen which was pretty annoying - it was very reliable after that though! I used the bookmarks feature quite a bit, and will stay as a customer!
They have a large selection and the app is easy to use. I would like more customization options though. Like changing the length of time on the forward and back buttons, having a bar for how much time is left in the book not just the chapter, but overall it's a good app.
