So sad, so bad
July '15. So, they update the app to take the white out of the icon, while keeping most of the pages of the app brilliant white. Audible, listen to your users and redesign the app to make it a good as your content.
Previous reviews: I love audible content, but this app is just bad. Re-issue the old one, with the sleep button on the front page. I don't need badges or news--I just need reliable playback and a one click sleep timer.
Review of May 2015 update: this update erases all your downloads--be prepared to wait around while you reconstruct your library. Another fail.
Review after update: well, now one page of audible is dark, so I'm giving one more star. But to get to that page I still have to go through a brilliant white page, and the sleep timer is still buried. Audible is a great service, but this app is not designed for users.
Original review: I listen to audiobooks as I'm going to sleep. The old interface was dark, and the sleep timer easily locatable in a corner. The new interface is brilliant white, and the sleep timer is buried in preferences, which has a near invisible button. Give us night mode!
Still Room For Improvement...
The app is trustworthy, although book chapter titles would help!
That I could loop a SHORT-book for repeated playback, without my intervention, or any attention at all would be of great value.
Some of my books are only a few hours long & are hypnosis/affirmation books, to be played during sleep.
That the recording automatically repeats itself, until I turn it off would be of great value. I hope to soon see this ability in a future release.
For listening to a normal book, the app is simple, dependable & easy to operate.
That none of my audiobooks offers an adequate indexing scheme, seems to be a major short-coming.
Sure, I want chapter & verse location positioning for my biblical volumes.
For my other books, I want indexes, chapters & keyword searches for location identification.
Black Screen of Death & no more library
They just bricked the app again... Black screen again on update. It -might- work after a hard restart of my phone. This is the only app I have ever had problems like this with.
Updated the audible app yesterday and just went to use it, as I do every day... Except now it just opens a black screen with nothing. This is totally useless. iPhone 6plus
