ABOUT THE APP
The Black Library Audio app is the ultimate way to experience Black Library’s wide range of audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want, right on your iPhone and iPad.
Choose from a wide range of over 170 audio titles set in the immersive worlds of Warhammer 40,000, The Horus Heresy and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
View the vast range of audiobooks and dramas, filtered by setting. Find your favourite series, or a new one, and buy every title that belongs to it. Get a taste of the action with a free sample before buying.
Browse the audiobooks and audio dramas you’ve purchased in the app’s Library. Sort your audios by purchase date, title or series. They’re all stored remotely for you to download to your device whenever you want to listen to them. You can toggle freely between titles on your device and everything you’ve purchased.
The app also features an audio player, allowing you to listen to your downloaded audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want. Never be without your fix of fantastic adventures from the worlds of Warhammer! Link up via bluetooth to listen remotely with cordless headphones or in your car.
A fully-featured search function allows you to find the audio you’re looking for in a variety of ways. You can search by title, author or keyword. Looking for stories that feature Ultramarines? Just type it into the search bar and you’ll find them all. The search function will even shortlist and show titles based on what you type, as you type it.
With our audiobooks you get to experience the story as it was meant to be heard. Word for word your narrator will read the story to you, straight from the page. Audiobooks are usually full and unabridged versions of novels, novellas or short stories.
With our audio dramas you are immersed in the story. Gunfire, battle cries and music form the backdrop on which actors play out the characters. The narrator links the tale together so all you have to do is listen to the action. Audio Drama’s are uniquely scripted and can range in length between roughly 10 minutes and 2 hours.
The Tech-Priests have been hard at working smiting bugs and praying for the Omnissiah to enhance the performance of the app.
Ratings and Reviews
I have to start off by saying I love Black Library and the media they produce. And I have to say it's great to have so much that they have created in the audio format quickly available at your fingertips.
Here is the problem, the audiobooks are formatted just like the books to have multiple tracks to correspond with chapters, but they don't work. Tracks are listed to have a run time of 0 seconds and you're stuck listing to a "prologue" track that goes on for for 8 solid hours.
If you happen to lose your place you are in a bind. Since the tracks don't work you have to start back at the beginning and press the fast forward button, which only moves 30 seconds at a time btw, until you catch back up to where you were.
When this app first came out I didn't have this problem, so far I've had 6 books with this problem. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Great for catching up
I had fallen behind on the Horus heresy, and I was pleased to find this app. I have a 2-3 hour commute everyday, and I have breezed through many books. However, I feel it would be nice if they would incorporate the ebook portion of this. Apple charges way to much for the ebooks when compared to the black library version. Help your followers out!
This app does not work
You can buy their product. The books are great.
It doesn’t keep it place, is constantly losing it’s place, skipping around. It forgets where you were at when you shut it down.
I have had success with some books, I have currently bought over 15 different books over the last year. Working through the problems. It is just so frustrating. I found that some of their books are now on Audible. Go there don’t waste your time and money on this app.
