* New sign in experience
* Bug fixes and app improvements
The home screen is blinding!
First, thank you for putting the fast-forward button on the home screen. However, I light up the entire room if I want to use any of the buttons! I saw the announcement that you can switch the color, but it switches back to white whenever is given the opportunity! and I'm not quite sure how Audible finds that opportunity...
When the whole screen is stark white, it might as well be a flashlight. I've turned the brightness down to the point that I can't see my other apps.
Constructive suggestion: I agree with previous writers that file folders need to be available. I would love to find my favorites and genres of books by folder. It's often impossible to try to remember a title years after I purchased it (I have to google a story line to try to remember the name and author of a book); then I can look it up by the author. Otherwise, I have to scroll through two or three years and hope for the best. What a hassle.
I'm giving it four stars because I love having the app and it is so much better than iTunes Audiobooks that I used to use. At least Audible doesn't lose all of your titles when your Computer crashes and throws in the towel. Yeah, I know I should back up every single day. But Audible is forgiving and lets me forget to do that!
Love this app- use it daily for many years
I listen to books using this App during my commute and as I fall asleep at bedtime. I have had very few problems with it during my many years of use. Hope I don't Jinx myself for saying that. I scanned some reviews where people complained about how bright the home screen is. I have mine set to "light theme" which makes it have a dark background which is much better. Works great for me. I also saw complaint about not being able to buy books from the app. Originally we could, but Apple would not allow it. They want all purchase to go through their store so not audible's fault. Also saw complaints asking to at least allow adding to wish lists from the App. This is possible. On the more menu select "before you go" and you can add to wish list. An enhancement i would like - my eyes are getting old- I wish the clock for time of day was displayed bigger while app is playing. Thanks for a great service and a great app.
Nice app. Keeps getting better with every release.
I honestly have no idea why everybody is complaining about this app. If your screen is too bright in the middle of the night lower your brightness when you go to bed. People that "accidentally blind" themselves should probably take measures to prevent that from happening. Insulting the design team for the order in which settings were listed because you blind yourself when YOU are fumbling in the dark half asleep is childish. Who do you blame when you blind yourself going to the bathroom at night?
Personally I'd like to be able to purchase from within the app but it's not a huge thing going to my browser app or laptop or PC and purchasing there.
I'm not sure why people are having to enter their Credentials every time but that's not the case with my usage so I can't speak to that. It may be a setting or your OS security or the installation hiccuped.
I have no problems with this app and am very pleased with the progress made over the past 4 years I've been using it.
