It's like Crack, from what I've been told
A few years and 40 something books later and I'm still addicted. Don't know what I will read next but I'm sure something will find me as it always does. I'm not much of a reader. Between not liking to read and 6 girls at home I don't have a lot of time to read and if when I try to sit down and read I fall asleep. That's where audible has been awesome. We live out in the country so I have over an hour commute and we are starting up a little hobby farm which puts me in the road a lot leaves even less time to read. Ah but time for listening I have much. Wether I'm driving or doing mindless chores my mind in entertained and I look forward to the long drive and chores that allow me to listen to books. I've been able to catch-up on classics, learn about history, and survive the end of the world. Depending on my activity I may choose a light hearted easy to follow book if the work may distract me from listening a bit, or something serious and in depth if I can focus my full attention.
Either way don't sign up unless you're willing to get hooked.
P.S. It's really helped to make conversation much more interesting and with all the sales they have I've been able to amass an in expensive audio library for my kids of the classics.
So enjoyable! Customer for life!
I love Audible so much! I listen everyday! Love a wide variety of topics & listen to all types of books while driving and while working. I even listen at home while doing boring type chores. I love the self help type books & anything educational or inspirational but my favorite is books on ancient history and lately ... interested in learning about conspiracies and books on ufo & alien topics. I am really finding that theres millions of topics to discover and so many things i never even knew existed are literally at my finger tips (or head phones) lol just waiting to be downloaded and enjoyed!
Audible is easy and problem free for me. I find it to be an excellent app in every way.
I highly recommend to all the other busy folks out there that find sitting down with a good book hard to do. Hard to squeeze into your busy schedule. Try audible and get your 'reading' in while your driving to & from work or at the gym, walking the dog etc etc. Tip: Beware-You will likely get hooked on it like me! Now I'm listening to books at every possible minute! Haaa haa Hey theres lots worse habits we could be hooked on folks! This one is at least healthy for ya!! I just love it! Thanks Audible. Keep up the good work 😘❤
Ive been an Audible member since 2004 and got this app as soon as it came out. Love it for my iPhone 6s. I love the latest update adding the sleep timer to the listening page. The recent updates have slowed loading the Cloud but I always keep several books downloaded to my phone and once I choose device I can start listening right away. I dont have any of the freezing or crashing others have mentioned. I like being able to listen from multiple devices the books sync easily allowing you to start at the new "location". I would like to be able to purchase from the app but I'm on a computer daily so it really isn't necessary for me. Crazy easy to use!! It would be nice to make collections or order my books in the library other ways than "recent" or length, maybe by author or date of release?
The company is very responsive to it's customers, quickly resolving any issues I've had. They even allow you to return a book!!!
Overall I give you ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ because in 12 years of using this product daily yes daily (how many hours is that?) I've been very very satisfied.
