What's New in Version 2.0.14
Auto-refresh now available: When you buy a new audiobook or one of your subscriptions is updated, Audible now automatically refreshes your library when you open the app.
The Audible App for the iPhone has been great for me. I have been a happy Audible customer since 2010 or so, and downloaded the app when I got an iPhone in 2012. Although I was able to put my Audible files on my iPod before 2012 and listen to them anywhere that way, I really love being able to immediately download a new purchase away from my computer, and I love the Badge system. Not that the Badges really mean anything, and I could have just as easily waited a few extra hours or so to put the files onto my device, but the app really does a great job at making the whole experience a bit more enjoyable and able to feed my instant gratification hunger. Thanks, Audible!
One Tiny Request...
Love AB. I must since I have over 40 days of listening on my counter :) Be it behind the wheel or in the air, I find AB to be a great way to productively pass time in an entertaining way. The App has been flawless and easy to maneuver.
My only annoyance is that I can't hide titles on the Cloud from view. While you can sort by title, date, or author, it would be helpful to be able to hide titles from view. I'm a serial reader. When I try to see if I've already read a title from someone like Patterson, I still have to plod through a lot of titles. If I could hide all but a particular series, it would be immeasurably easier- and no, I don't want to have an entire series on my device.
Other than that, try it, you'll like it!
Whispersync not working after update
I used to love this app. I am a Charter member of Audible and have many books. My favorite about this app was Whispersync. I could listen during my commute, read on my Kindle app at home or work, and all my devices stayed in sync. But after the update my Audible app no longer syncs with my Kindle apps. I have uninstalled & reinstalled numerous times and tried several Whispersync books. They will sync only when first opened. After that there is no sync at all from this app. The Kindle apps still sync, but Audible does not. I am in the middle of a book when the sync stopped working. I want the old version back!
