What's New in Version 2.0.11
Now you can view full cover art from the iPhone player screen. Tap on the center of the cover to dismiss the player controls that are obstructing the art, and tap on it again to bring the controls back. In particular, this is good news for our children's books with synchronized images.
Listeners can view book info and mark their title as "finished" directly from the library. To access both these features, tap and hold on the book in the library, and a new menu will pop up with these two options.
ANYONE who loves to read should have this!
Listening to audio books during long commutes to and from work has saved me so many headaches, it's unbelievable! I tell all my friends about Audible! I like the bookmark feature a lot. I only ran into one book that did not have the capability to bookmark - that was attributed to the formatting of the audio book and not the application, because I've had no problems with other books. The sleep mode is awesome - I could go into detail how to make the best of this feature, but not enough room...sorry! I get a little miffed when the badge thingy pops up with messages like I'm a novice at this thing (dumb huh?). The truth is, I've listened to "hundreds" of books....before this app began. In short, I read ebooks and when its not feasible (i.e. during workout) I listen to an audio book selected just for my workouts, walks, etc.) It's pretty cool the book is in the cloud so I can pick up my iPhone or iPad and 'read' / 'listen' to the same book where I left off.... LOL! That's in theory, to be honest. I'm still working with this feature - it's not a perfect world when using the cloud feature yet, I must admit. No biggie, however....I still give this app a 5 BIG stars....the benefits FAR outweigh the negatives. Best thing since low-cal Subway sandwiches!
Most Favoritest App
I've been an audio-book fan for YEARS. Back in the 80's & 90's, I was a "professional voice artist", which is a fancy way of saying I was a reader for "books-on-tape" as it used to be known. That being said, I have a LONG history with audio book production and I absolutely ADORE Audible!!!
I listen to audio books as I clean house, work in my yarden, workout, walk, drive on long trips: in other words, I use it Audible a lot!!! These books kept me entertained while driving from Alabama to Colorado a few weeks ago and they kept me company while I built a shed this weekend.
The bookmark feature works well for me as I often switch between listening on my iPhone and my iPad. I really appreciate everything stored on the cloud, which means I can pick up right were I left off. I haven't used WhisperSync much, because if I sit down to read, I usually fall asleep.
Every time I update the app, in impressed that they've found something to improve! Nothing in this world is perfect, but it's nice to have a company that actually listens to suggestions an works to improve its products. They also offer excellent specials and they have interesting daily deals. I've been using this app for several years and I plan on continuing my service with them.
Most convenient way to read a good book!
I love to read a good book but scarcely get time to sit down and do this. So, with Audible I can get two things done at one time. I can get ready in the morning and listen to a good book, I can drive and listen to a good book, I can clean the house and listen to a good book. It makes cleaning the house that much more desirable, I want to get it done so I can listen to a good book. What really surprises me about Audible is not only do I get to read books that are new to me, I get to listen to books that I've read once before and have really enjoyed and would like to reread. Audible has them! Audible also has people who can help you find your next book to read. I clicked on the chat box one day to ask for help and how to use and make the best of Audible and found she was also excellent at knowing where to find and how to choose my next good read. Take advantage and use their great customer service! I also enjoy reading the reviews others have written about the books they have read. They are just as interesting and entertaining to read as listening to a good book! I say, take advantage of the audible app and the audible service that comes with it and enhance your life with listening to a good book.
