What's New in Version 2.6.1
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
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.
Very enjoyable, especially with Whispersync
This app is awesome! I have it on my iPad and while it's made for iPhone it works just fine, the screen display is just small (or very low resolution if you choose to maximize it). I have been inseparable from my iPad thanks to being able to listen to some amazing novels on it.
Note: the only time that it'll sync up with the page you're on in your Kindle app is if you have an audio book with Whispersync. It works perfectly and will find the exact paragraph you're on, even, if you switch from reading in a Kindle app to listening on the Audible app. However there's many books on Audible that aren't Whispersync enabled. I suspect the negative reviews about the Kindle-Audible syncing are due to people not realizing they didn't download a Whispersync title.
Hands down, BEST audio app!
This is the best audio app I have listened to. The sound quality, narrators and options are outstanding! The sales and recommendations based on listening history have been extremely beneficial for building my Audible library, and for meeting new authors. I drive a lot for my job, and this definitely helps break the monotony, and makes my drives enjoyable. I've listened while flying, waiting for a doctor appointment, while waiting to pick the kids up from school, and while house cleaning. Great app! I love that it tracks hours listening, and bookmarks to save my place. I cannot say enough great things about it. Try it out and you will see...watch out though, it's hard to stop listening when you've found a great audio book!
