What's New in Version 2.14
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Love my audible app
This app is just wonderful. One of my most favorite aspects of the application is the sleep timer. Whenever I'm needing to calm down my brain from the day, I can set the application to low light night mode, set the timer to play for a certain amount of time, and have a wonderful story read to me before bed. It like having a nurturing parent read a bedtime story who will stop when you fall asleep and mark your place for the next day. This is just one of the ways I use Audible.
And whenever you are on a long trip in a car filled with children, you can keep the entire family engaged by listening to a story. The car is quite, each individual is visually picturing the story in their minds, and the whole family has a shared topic of conversation.
It never fails to download, loses its place or gives us any grief.
The kids even use it to listen to their reading assignments when they are having a difficult time finding time to read. It is also great for those students who have trouble reading but are auditory learners. Even to have the story read while they follow along in the book can be a great help to them.
And lastly I love reading but with working, a family and maintaining a house; finding time to read can be challenge. With this app I can listen to a story or learn new material no matter where I am working... The kitchen, cleaning, working in the yard or the office... The story comes with me.
No other audio book app like it
The massive growth in audible content over the last couple years had been fantastic. The massive library of available books, short stories and essays is absolutely wonderful. The new line of classic radio shows has take me to an age when radio was the king of entertainment, and provides a great peek into the history of classic radio entertainment. The great courses channels are amazing and offer a great selection, suitable for all interests. I personally would not be able to get through my workday without the content available on audible. I literally cannot speak more highly of audible, I have, and will continue to recommend audible to my friends and family. If your interested in audiobooks at all the free trail is a great place to start! If you like your trial, don't be afraid of the monthly cost, realistically if you only listen to 1 book a month you can use your free monthly credit to get an audio book worth 10x your monthly Payment. Once your a member you are able to purchase endless books at a discounted price! It truly is an amazing entertainment service, I know you'll love it!
Glad I tried it again
After being a member, for a brief time, I was not able to access my library anymore. I began buying books on iTunes along with my music but the cost is very prohibitive. Several months ago, after both my adult son & nephew recommended Audible, I decided to give them another try. I am so happy I did. I became a member & received several books at a reduced rate. The monthly rate is cheaper than most books & I can buy extra credits each month at a reduced rate. I was buying books anyway so it really is nice to get the books for less. Also I love how you can share books & clips with friends! I just "discovered". That when I make a purchase decision I am unhappy with I can return it. There have been several books that I thought were terrible, some I finished only because I "didn't want to waste my money" and a few I just could listen to another word. I love how I was either refunded the books I never listened too or given a credit for the terrible ones I either couldn't finish or just hated them when I finished them. I love audible!
