About this app

The free Downpour.com app gives your Android device access to all your downloadable audiobooks from the Downpour.com e-commerce website, complete with “single-touch” full library and audiobook list views.

No Wi-Fi connection is needed to download your audiobooks. As long as you have a cell connection you can begin your download—but data rates may apply. Once downloaded, you can take your audiobooks with you on the go.

Quick listening — You can start listening to your audiobook as soon as the first track is downloaded to your device. All additional tracks will continue to download in the background.

The Downpour.com app contains well designed playback functionality and controls, including track advance and previous track selection and bookmarking—the app saves your place automatically so you can pick up right where you left off without having to remember where you were. Other key features include track-list view and time elapsed by track/chapter, with on-screen track scrub bar functionality.

Easy Syncing — There is no need for difficult and time consuming transfers/syncing of files between your computer and your Android device. The Downpour.com app will handle all of the technical aspects for you—no more worrying about which file type is the most appropriate for your device.

I've used this app previously and it was great but some time in the past two years it's been updated. It no longer launches properly. Instead it crashes to a frozen screen and a message that cryptically states "an internal application error has occurred". When they resolve this I'll happily update my review but as of right now it's unusable.

I've been a happy Downpour customer for years now. The app works well, but I wish there was a way to tweak the controls. If I am hands free, the back button goes back to the start of the track, which hurts when you want to replay the last minute but instead takes you back to the start of an hour long track. Would be nice to be able to specify its the 30 second backup instead.

Update! Great service for purchasing audiobooks. Their selection is very similar to Audible, but is DRM free. This app is a great way to listen to audiobooks purchased through their service and syncs where you left is with the website player so you can move between devices easily. Previously the app had a weird issue that appears to be related to corrupt user data. Once I cleared the data (uninstalling doesn't do this) it worked perfectly.
