What's New in Version 7.0.1
Just a quick update to fix a few bugs that I've found in the last release. Thanks for the help in tracking them down.
Version 7.0.0 Release Notes:
I've been working to make Audiobook more reliable and easier to use. This update is a top-to-bottom update that improves:
- I've added a new feature called, TimeSaver, which seamlessly removes silence from your audiobooks making them play faster but without the usual distortion of increasing the playback rate. You'll typically save 5-10% of time when this is turned on.
- The layout of the app has been changed to make it easier to navigate
- A fresh visual design that puts a stronger emphasis on the books
- A consistent design for the iPhone and iPad to make it easier to move between them
- Dramatic stability and compatibility improvements
- As well as adding HUNDREDS of new FREE books.
I hope you like the update! If you do, please consider writing a review of the app. If you see any issues or have feedback please let me know using the support link in the Settings area.
I've used this app alongside ibooks and audible apps for many years (>5.) I am a shut-in who has audiobooks as my tenants. All three of the mentioned programs function well. After the face lift Audiobooks got today, it is my #1. Especially as I consider the vast amount of amazing public domain books that are out there. Listenup: authors like Maurice Leblanc are diamonds waiting to be found. Addendum: the jump forward and speed buttons are easily confused as they look almost identical and are set one above the other. Would like to see the back arrow at top left restored for all screens.
Great content, app itself needs some tweaking
The new update is pretty good, and of course having access to all these classics is great. My one complaint is that we can not edit the order our books are in in the library. If I try to sort them, they go right back to where they were to begin with. Please address this in the next update.
Enjoy listening when I can't read
I like being able to set the time I want to listen and then have it turn off. Often go to bed listening to a section of the book but if I fall asleep it won't keep going. Only problem is that I have to try to find what I last heard, as there are no visual clues where I am in the book.
