What's New in Version 2.6.1
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
One of my favorite apps
I use Audible ALL the time!! I basically never remove the headphones (seriously, since Apr 2014, I racked up >4.5 months of listening... and nearly 0 problems with the app). It's so much easier for me to get to the books I want to read if I can listen to them while getting work done! It's perfect for lab work, driving, and any other activity that allows for the mind to wander. Through all versions I’ve used, there’s been basically glitch-free functionality. When I do encounter issues, I find they're very often resolved in the next update. Updates have also often included changes reflecting [reviews / feedback / suggestions]—nice to know Audible’s customer support is listening (and continually improving)… unlike some Corp’s I can think of. There are a couple little things that I’d like to change, like switching some buttons on/off the main screen instead of menu screen (e.g. I’d replace the “chapters” button with the main “bookmarks” menu button). Of course, I’d like it if the Audible book selection was more expansive, but it’s pretty darn good and always improving. Now if they'd just find some poor sucker to read textbooks, then I'd be set :).
iPhone 4s, iOS 8.4.1.
Note: I generally wait to make iOS updates until some of the kinks are ironed out, which may be part of the reason I've never had any troubles with apps like Audible.
I have never had a single app or invention change my daily life so completely as the audible app. I'm a commuter and I live in New York City and there have been many times I've used my commute time to sleep or daydream. I now fill it with books. I've never been so well read.… so up-to-date… Or able to pursue so many things that interest me at the same time as I can now thanks to the audible app. It's not just books it's magazines and newspapers as well. I love to read and put a book in my hands and pay attention to it. But there are several times in life that having someone read it to you...especially a professional voice actor or theatrical actor... When it's even better to listen. And listening I found is inspiring, educational, instructive, helpful, and most often times thoroughly entertaining. At first I found myself needing to go back a chapter or a half a chapter or a quarter chapter or 30 seconds when I would be distracted or need to deal with things like getting off the subway car at the right exit… :-)… But the reality is having audible has changed my life and I'm incredibly grateful for it Service thank you audible please keep adding to your library I hope every book is also an audiobook in the near future. I'm very grateful for the service.
Generally awesome - great for college
It's easy to use and is definitely one of the best services and apps out there!! I love reading and don't have the time. Although I miss picking up a book to read, I really appreciate having so many audio books at my fingertips. If only I could buy things straight from the app it would be perfect! (Hopefully someone from audible sees this). Still I recommend this app to everyone I know! If you have a commute, workout or have spent anytime listening to music audible is perfect! More specifically I'm a college student. Getting the books that I have to read for class on audible is the only way I have time to get through them all! As I walk to class I listen and annotate if needed. At the end of the day I rewrite my notes onto paper that I am actually allowed to use in class (no professor seems to like phones) and it's a perfect way to think about and formulate ideas for papers. As mentioned above I love having physical books to read. But for every book I need for a class I will get on audible. I definitely prefer it that way!
