Audiobooks Makes My Morning Commute Easy!


I’m from Houston, and traffic is a pain. Every morning, I drive at least an hour and 15-30 mins to work, and I drive the same back. So I spend about 3hrs in the car JUST driving to and from work. Before I found Audiobooks, I listened to Podcasts. I started having trouble finding ones I liked, or the ones I liked didn’t update enough to meet the needs of my 3hrs daily. So I downloaded Audiobooks because I saw some were 10+ hours long, and I love to read anyway. I got the book, “The Glass Castle” because I feel like although I prefer reading myself, I like when people tell stories, so I could listen to a personal narrative without wanting to be reading a physical book. After the first part of my commute the first day, I was so thankful I downloaded it! I’m definitely going to keep at it. At this rate, I’ll listen to a book once every 3-4 days, so I have to find a way to afford it. That’s the only downside. I purchase a lot of books in print, and I wish they came with automatic downloads or something. In the meantime, I’m going to try to get as many credits as I can to make it cost efficient for me.

Good App and straight forward business model

Raider Torch

I recently switched back to Audiobooks from another similar service/app. The other one was cheaper, but it turns out you get what you pay for. Other service randomly denied the books I was right in the middle of and took a few days to fix the issue that came with an update. The other part that really drove me away was I had banked up a few credits, as I listen to about 1 book in a little over a month, I had the service stop charging me so I could catch up. They cut off my whole service in the process. I had to keep my service charging me to finish the book I was in the middle of and then leave a credit behind when I left their service. Audiobooks has never cut me off mid book. Their business model views credits you’ve purchased as yours and honors their use regardless of whether you commit to remaining a customer. I will gladly pay the extra few dollars a month for that level of service to finish the series I’m halfway through, The Sword of Truth (I’m up to Chainfire now).

So far so good


I just got this app yesterday but so far so good. There is one feature I can’t seem to find and am slightly annoyed by. However that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, but if it does I wish it was easier to figure out. Here it is, it seems like you get to select a playback option in the settings (for example mine is 30 seconds) but after you choose it seems you’re stuck with just that option. Sure change it again but I’d like to be able to go back 30 seconds AND go back a chapter. There doesn’t seem to be an easy way to restart a chapter or select a chapter specifically. Now like I said I haven’t spent any time looking for any tips or instructions for using this app, so maybe it’s right there and I haven’t realized it yet. But if that’s the case then I’d say this app is quite similar to audible, but not as user friendly in that way. Still, I’d recommend this app for anyone wanting to listen to audiobooks. The playback thing is minor and may not bother most people so clearly they’re doing everything else ok, so worth a download if you’re interested in audiobooks.

Developer Response

Hey! You can change the time skipping setting in the settings of the app. Just tap the '30' (if that's what it's set to) and select a new time you'd prefer. Hope that helps!
