What's New in Version 2.19
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Nice but some problems that need fixed.
It's very enjoyable to be able to listen to a book while driving or doing whatever, but I do believe the app needs some improvements. For instance, the chapters are only listed by number and they don't necessary match up with the chapter numbers of the written copy. It would be nice to see the chapters in the app so that you might be able to listen to certain parts of the book without remember which chapter number they are.
I would also like to see the creators fix the problem with writing a review of a book in the app. I have tried this a number of times and after wasting my time writing the review, I find out that when I push submit, it tells me there's a problem and to try later. Yeah, there's a problem. IT DOESN'T WORK!!! NOT EVER. I have tried it several times with several books, and there is ALWAYS A PROBLEM.
When I go to the website, I can put the review on just fine, but that kind of defeats the purpose of the app.
Works great 99% of the time. When it didn't, that 1% it was when I had purchased a book and had to call support. They said sometimes the library doesn't always refresh and to manually refresh one can go to settings and "refresh library". Seemed like a silly programing oversight...but as I said this has only happened once to me. The many books I've purchased just appear in the library and work great. My only gripe with the app is if you want to purchase a book you have to add it to your wishlist, then go to the audible website to actually buy it...seems tedious and something id like resolved going forward.
TLDR: works great most of the time, would highly recommend...just please broaden your book selection. Many times audible doesn't have books I'm interested in, particularly older books
Audiobooks are a little bit expensive, but I love it. It gives you the opportunity to delve into pieces of literature that been waiting for. Dominantly a book reader and not a TV person or a movie person, I find it with my really busy schedule is hard to find time to sit and read. But now, I can use the dead time when I'm sitting in the car or walking the dog to read a good book. It is a thrill to read at least two books a week. I find it is the perfect way to get out of my head when I am too wound up.
I'm a writer and I have words swimming in front of my eyes all day long. This is different. It's just images.
I have also had the opportunity to read all kinds of classics, biographies and history books that would have been hard to read so quickly. Knowledge is out there and I am a sponge for it. I love this app!
