What's New in Version 2.4.2
Bug fix for a library refresh error affecting some customers.
Works better than the iPod app on my iPhone.
I'm an audiobook JUNKIE with close to 1000 in my iTunes library. Several Apple updates ago Apple took away the chapter views. I fall asleep each night listening to a book and it very easy to find where I was at when sleep came. When you move the slide you're doing it for that chapter on. While trying to do the same on The iPod App it's for the ENTIRE book instead of just a single chapter. You have a much finer control when it just a chapter and instead of it being a whole 14 hour book.
Plus, when you download a book on your computer that you purchased from Audible it automatically moves itself into iTunes. No searching and trying to add it to your library. I use Macs so I don't know if they automatically move to iTunes with Windows.
This has nothing to do with the app but the exact book is considerably cheaper at audible. If you "read" a lot of audiobooks check out Audible.
Audible is awesome
I love audible and I like the way the subscription plan works. I do recommend that if you binge listen you should invest in the bi-monthly credit subscription, which gives you two books and month instead of one.
As far as the app goes I've had no issues with it this far. A lot of the areas seem pointless to me (achievements and the explore aspect) but some people may enjoy them. I REALLY wish it would let you buy books through the app itself rather than having to use the website. I just don't see why a business wouldn't want to have the option of purchase right at the fingertips of its consumer.
That's probably a good deterrent to keep me from spending too much on audio books. TL;DR: Great app, great service, and plenty of good books if you explore a little, and aren't miffed if they don't have a particular author.
As a high school English teacher, I rarely have time to read the books I want to read in my spare time. Between teaching, lesson planning, and grading there's barely any time in the day left for me to read. However, with Audible I have the ability to read on my commute, at the gym, in the copy room, grading monotonous assignments, and even completing household chores. This app allows me to make my routine tasks enjoyable and get in my on the side pleasure reading as well. Also, as a teacher I sometimes find myself pulling out my phone and having a student listen to the Audible version of the book as they read. This really is the best technology out there. If you want to good app on your phone and you really enjoy the occasional book. Audible is the best deal out there.
