Ratings and Reviews
Ok but also ridiculous!!
Right so... I play my iBook purchases through the audible app because I prefer the interface! But other than a bigger library of books to choose from that’s all I really like about it (although pretty much all the main big titles you’ll find anywhere). The two main things I dislike are that they don’t allow you to make purchases through the app. In a consumer driven world that’s focused on what’s convenient you can only make purchases on a PC or mobile desktop... at least as a non-member, which brings me to my next point and isn’t very good on the go! The second and the most frustrating to me is looking at a lot of the titles on my “to buy” list, without being forced to pay monthly for a membership and get these “discounts”, I searched some that I’m most interested in and every single one was more expensive than Apple are charging. Most of the time a lot more, even £10+ more. That’s ridiculous and very frustrating to feel as if you’re being bated to buy a membership that ultimately means you some how have to pay monthly to not get ripped off with the purchase prices. So disappointing but hey, enough good reviews on here shows most are happy with it. So just my recent realisation.
Most used app on my phone by far!!
Download Audible now and you won’t regret it!!!
I have been a listener since early 2012 and have been addicted ever since. I love the never ending expanse of books on a huge range of subjects. The vast majority of narrators are superb but I always sample a book before I purchase because a wonderful book can be completely ruined by a poor narrator. I love that you can return a book but I don’t think I’ve ever used that function. Some of the new podcast are great as well.
It is a little annoying that you can buy a book straight from the app but have to go to the main website, but it doesn’t take more than a minute or so.
Can’t say enough good things about Audible (I have even got friends and family addicted also!) All in all is a brilliant app and the amount of free promotion and word of mouth praise I think I should be on the payroll!! Free book by any chance?!! (Worth a try!) 😉

Would certainly recommend
Works great on my phone. massive choice of non fiction, and an option to request books. Expensive books, costing in excess of £50, still cost just 1 credit, allowing anyone with little money the opportunity to own books they’d only otherwise get from a library. I can’t rave enough, but maybe I am overjoyed because I have had since 2014 and didn’t get chance to use it, and forgot all about it. I’d set up a direct debit and didn’t even notice the bill go out each month, so by the time I remember to check it out I had a collection of credits to use which feel almost free. Also you can return the books if you listen to them and didn’t like them, and have your credit returned for a new book. I might also add that if you have ran out of credits, the books are also all at reduced prices. The chapters are listed in a menu, there’s a sleep timer, I can’t find anything I don’t like. Would recommend!
