I ❤️ AUDIBLE
Member for MANY years.. Always loved Audible. Trouble was, in the past, there was no real way to book mark when listening on a CD. Always had to play the game of 'do I remember that bit?' while scrolling with the squeaky voices backwards through the audiobook (seems archaic now!). The app is brilliant. The 30second jump back n forth option makes finding the exact bit where you fell asleep, or the cat came in to get it's nightly tickle and you stopped listening, or that terrible 'wandering brain' moment when you first start your session of listening, where your mind skips about over a million nonsensical images and recollections of rubbish, normally, before you realise you've heard NOTHING of the chapter currently being told to you. This phenomena is no longer so irksome to rectify as it was in the days of CDs.
Easy chapter finding, easy scrolling, and the data is cool! Great to see how many hours you've been immersed in your literary universe of choice. Although I am a bit peeved I can't add the countless THOUSANDS of hours spent listening to my beloved books PRE- the advent of this app!!!
Love the little badges, too. Little awards for your efforts listening.. Feel like I'm a Brownie all over again! 😃
Love Audible. App has flaws.
Audible has been a wonderful find. Over the past 18 months I have listened to dozens of books, I am approaching the hundred mark in my library and renew my annual membership twice or three times a year. If this was reviewing a pure listening device I would give it 5 stars without hesitation.
The app does however offer other components that seem to fall short. The badges are more of a gimmick, but if they must be a feature, I would hope they worked. They have not updated for a long time. The app also seems to forget books you have finished, which is frustrating when navigating the library.
I would find this app perfect if there was an option to add folders to the library. Must like on a bookshelf, it would be nice to sort the books into my own categories. As I intend to continue using it long into the future, I imagine it is going to get annoying having to scroll through every book in order to browse, and the search option only works when you have an audiobook in mind.
Other than that I do love this app, and I think with a bit of tweaking it would be five stars.
Not a brilliant app
After a series of emails and one telephone call, I have to say that I'm disappointed that this app, despite having an iTunes tab, will not correctly order mult-part books unless they were bought from Audible. I have iTunes bought 3 and 4 part audiobooks which are in random order. The mp3s from ripped CD and Tape books start without regard to alphabetical or numerical listing of the part name, or track number.
The chap from Audible did say that perhaps the developers should know, but I'm not sure they are interested as this isn't a new problem.
The only good thing I found is that I can change 'MarketPlace' from UK to USA, if I sign out and re-start the app.
Anyone with an offer from a different country can still buy and download.
