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! 😃
Use this app every day and wouldn't be without it. Would be more convenient to be able to buy from the app and hope that comes about one day. Still prefer the male readers, and always use the soundbites before buying. Really appreciate being able to download the files. Would be good if the sleep timer was easier to get to or the buttons a little larger -my eyesight not being quite what it used to be. Thank you Audible.
I love this app
I have loved being read to since I was a child, and before this app I relied on the radio for my story listening fixes. Now, however, I have the pure enjoyment of listening to books while doing housework, relaxing in an arm chair or snuggled down in bed with the light off. Pure bliss. The timer allows me to set at how long I want the story to go on for. Though have to admit I do often go to sleep before the time set I really can recommend this app!
