Ratings and Reviews
Best most used app period
Audible is my main source of digital entertainment it sets the new standard for pure ease to use and wonderfully affordable content. The books permances are either at normal audiobook standards which are quite hi or immensely better like when they have Kenneth Branagh do heart of darkness and Frankenstein or an all ensemble cast for Dune. Bottom line is this is just wonderful. It also run on most modern devices and you can pause a book on one device and pick it up right where you left off on another. Truly this app and it’s cheap subscription to gain new content is wonderful the best part is even though you subscribe to gain new content through a credit that can be used on anything each month you keep all your content forever if you cancel the subscription. You can also by books al a cart for 10-45 bucks or buy 3 packs of credits occasionally for 30 which is the best deal because you will get 1 credit for ten bucks that can buy any book including a 45 dollar one. Therefore this service is just amazing an infinitely better than books on tape or cd which are either fragile or impossible to bookmark and cost in some cases 70-85 dollars. There is a 30 day free trial for this app so there is no sane reason to not go with it.
Despite what critics may say...
Now I know you’ve all heard the horrible horrible rumors circling around as of late about this here Audible App, I’m here to set the record straight. There is no master plan (I’m paid to say that) they’re not trying to trick you into downloading your app and then giving you serotonin in exchange for a few blinking lights. No, in fact they’re even going so far as to do you a massive favor in the form of letting you take those cute little books you love so much on the road with you! INFINITE SEROTONIN. Not that you couldn’t take a book on a road trip of course, I simply think I stand for all of us when I say: Please don’t try to read your book while swerving in and out of traffic. We, the living, would truly appreciate it. (I have to say that, people do some dumb stuff) Now thanks to this modern revelation in book science you can listen to people read you your books without the crippling anxiety caused by having an actual breathing human staring at a book and then back at you for countless hours. Isn’t that neat? Five stars? Why is it even an option to review this... it should just be common sense. Books are great. Instant, effortless books. Living in the future!~ 2019 boys. We made it.
Better and better- not perfect
This app gets better and better but it isn't perfect. The app has great features and a few clunky ones. More good ones than it used to have. They are being improved over time. All in all, I'm happy with my experience. I can return books I didn't like if they are returned within 6 months. I don't read (listen to) them that quickly. I buy faster than I listen to them. Some times I finish them and the "finished" indication doesn't stay associated with the book through app revisions. Not Cool!
The stories included in the titles are often well done but some presentations need serious rework - not many - but the choice for presenter could sometimes be improved. I've listened to a couple dozen different presenters by now ( a couple hundred books ). If those that were "flat" could be trained or replaced with more skilled people a lot of the stories would be better but, sometimes the story is the problem and that is a shame. It becomes easier to tell the difference between problems in story and presentation as you hear more of each. The short samples offered before you buy are most helpful ( at least to me ) only after my ear has become trained by listening to a goodly number of books by many presenters.
