I love to read but typically with an actual book in my hands. I also love being active...hiking, mountain biking, etc. Due to extremely hot temperatures outdoors and a recent medical condition, I've been given two options, either don't exercise or do it indoors. I have never liked to workout indoors and detest the noise and distraction of a gym. I'm wasn't going to stop exercising, so the dreaded gym it was. I don't like to "plug in" and listen to the many tvs playing in the gym. I would typically listen to music if going for a walk or run outdoors but that just doesn't seem to help in the gym. I thought I'd try an audiobook and now I AM HOOKED!!!! I'm at the gym from 1-2 hours and now the time flies by!!! It's like having a movie play in your head while those around you are drudging it out in the gym. I love this app. It's so easy to download and play a book. I'll admit I do occasionally get distracted and miss a bit of the story but the 10 second rewind feature let's you easily backup, find your place and lose yourself in the story once again!! I love this so much that now I can't wait to go to the gym or for anytime I can listen. Getting ready to go on vacation and plan to leave my actual books behind. No need to have them when I've got any story I want just a download and listen away!!! 👍
Fine app, needs imporoved interface
I've been using the Audible app for years, so I'm really directly comparing the Audiobooks app with that. I like that the Audiobooks app has a sleep timer and you can fast forward or go backward 30 seconds with the tap of a button. Overall, the app deserves 3 stars because it gets the job done, but just is a little less user friendly than Audible right now.
Specifically I don't like that from the opening screen, if I play the book I'm currently listening to it doesn't automatically open up to a screen where I can navigate within that book (see what chapter I'm in, back it up, etc.). It took me a while before I realized that there is a small banner at the bottom of the screen that, when tapped, takes you to these kinds of options. Being able to navigate around in the book should be the default view of any book someone is listening to.
The only other thing is that I don't have the option to change chapters at all in the book I'm currently listening to. If this is unique to this specific book, then this is not a criticism of the app at all. But I have no other books to compare to right now. If this is actually a feature lacking in the app, then it definitely needs to be addressed so that listeners can navigate between chapters.
I've enjoyed this app so far. Books are great for passing time, but there are certain times when curling up by the fireplace with a personal favorite really isn't practical. Barreling down the interstate at 70mph (or 80mph - shhh!) is one of those times. For some reason, other drivers and passengers tend to be alarmed by this and make an awful lot of racket, which ends up being quite distracting. Listening to the book on audio, however tends to have the opposite result, and seems to be much more pleasant for all parties involved. As such, I'm quite pleased with the app. It's easy enough to figure out, if though not quite as nice to look at as say another app, and plays quite nicely. I only wish they had a wider selection of books, and maybe were able to personalize selections based on pre-selected book favorites. Suggestions would be nice as it can be hard to know which books you like that they have available, and it can be hard to come up with titles on the spot.
