I loved audible, and still do. However Aubible is never satisfied with how much money you spend. In the past after stopping my payments I have had books that I purchased removed from my personal library without warning. Not too fare considering I have spent nearly $70 through this app. C'mon audible :/ you are better than this.. Full Review
Victoria Rice Published date: January 16, 2018
Just wonderful. I've always been an avid reader but in recent years I haven't managed to read as much. My commute is so much better with audiobooks. At night I can fall asleep with a sleep timer on so I know I'm not going to miss too much. Daily chores are great with an audiobook to keep you company! The app is great, the selection of books is great. Definitely worth the subscription! Full Review
Dylan D Published date: January 11, 2018
Please fix sort by author with multiple authors, upon refreshing the authors will reverse etc making 2 books written by the same 2 authors not grouped together when they should be. Example are the 2 xfiles audible originals, also the talisman and black house by peter straub and stephen king. I have to fight the app go get these to group, please fix. Full Review
Miranda Richetelle Published date: January 9, 2018
I'm dyslexic. So this is the best thing ever. For years I couldn't really read that much. But when my friend told me about audible it changed my life. I've listened to so many books and I love it. The app is easy to use and works great. And the selection of books is also fantastic! Full Review
Published date: January 9, 2018
I love audible, so glad I subscribed. A credit for a new book every month for a monthly subscription. Samples of the book before you buy it so you know the voice won't annoy you, a great selection of books. The only thing is that sometimes in the UK I can't get books that are available in the US version. Full Review
Garry Dawson Published date: January 14, 2018
On first assumption ? Random my informed idea is to set up a set of 12 card packs of approximately 60 well chosen quotes covering several areas of CBT learning and neurological pathways to assist mental health support- if one per every day of the month is chosen this will hopefully build a neurological pathway and a tool to assist dealing with day to day life of mental health sufferer's. Its such an individual illness which no two persons has identical systems of thought. Thanks for the time and effort putting this app together Yours respectively , Mr G. R. Dawson Full Review
Rebecca Rideout Published date: January 11, 2018
The platform for this app is great. I don't have many audio books so I never have trouble finding what I am after. I like the fact that you can skip back to the start of a chapter. The audio quality is always good. There is an amazing range of titles. Some of the books are very expensive unless you have the subscription and while the subscription is decent I can not listen to that many Audiobooks. So I have unsubscriped for the moment. It still gives you access to the books you bought, the books in the store just go back to their original price. Full Review
Brandon Rockhold Published date: January 14, 2018
Great app and service. Audio books are a fantastic way to fill the void or monotony of daily tasks that don't require much attention. I use it heavily to focus on learning new things and have assembled a huge library of books that I've enjoyed over years of using the app/service. I'd highly recommend giving it a shot if you're on the fence. Full Review
Richard Connelly Published date: January 15, 2018
I'm dyslexic and have never really enjoyed reading but this has opened the world of books to me. I'm completely hooked. All the books are read very well and clearly and I get really dragged into every story. The only issue I have is there so much selection I have no idea what to pick next. Full Review
Dennis Ferrer Published date: January 13, 2018
Best app download ever. With the membership you get both discounts and "credit per month" purchasing power, which in itself equates to about $15/book. I love the fact these aren't streamed, since I listen to them when I happen to be in low reception areas most of the time and since I am currently reading at 2.70 speed I finish even long books at a pace of two books per week! Full Review
Suzy Darling Published date: January 14, 2018
I'm enjoying my retirement in part thanks to Audible. Reading for my own pleasure is one thing that got set aside in my busy working world. Now I sit back, relax, choose a good book and let the excellent readers read to me via Audible! Thank you so much, truly a gift! Full Review
Mario Ibrahim Published date: January 15, 2018
I don't like to read! I've been missing out on books because of my short attention span and not looking to sit down to read. But now I can digest the information through audio while doing laundry or driving. Full Review
hugh parker Published date: January 13, 2018
Obviously, I am pleased. I started listening on an MP3 player with a cassette adapter in my car! Now, my phone is a mini-supercomputer that also plays my audio books. Audible has likewise kept pace and has become the only serious vendor for audio books. Full Review
Andrea Stevenson Published date: January 14, 2018
Too many barriers to unsubscribe once they have your bank account number! If I subscribe using a mobile device I should be able to unsubscribe the same way but no! must login to a desktop computer to unsubscribe or cancel your membership silly! Full Review
Michael Ngo Published date: January 16, 2018
Very intuitive and has a convenient driving mode. My wish list for it was an ability to sync where you last left off between the Audible & Kindle apps. It would be a challenge from a code perspective. As the consumer, its not a big deal as the app has worked very well. Full Review
Stephanie Walker Published date: January 17, 2018
No lock screen controls? Everything else is solidly okay, but the lack of lock screen controls is astounding and makes it a hassle to pause quickly. Edit: Thanks for the quick reply, but I'm not looking for a widget to take up space on my home screen. That does not solve the need to unlock or leave the app I'm in. I want to know why there is no control notification as is standard with audio apps and which solves both of the above problems. Full Review
Julie Pierce Published date: January 16, 2018
I go to work early in the morning and sometimes I just don't feel like messing with my music- too much too early in the morning. This is the perfect alternative. It's not the same as curling up on the couch with the actual book but I do feel a sense of accomplishment finishing a story. Full Review
Juha Hakala Published date: January 16, 2018
App is okay for listening but the store usability is a nightmare. The back-button for example leads to my library instead of the previous view in the store. Really annoying to browse anything. Overall look and feel is also out dated and clunky Full Review
daisydigs moondog Published date: January 17, 2018
I don't know how I managed to live my life without audible, I love it! It's always worked fine on my phones (HTC) and I'd be lost without it. It's brilliant that you can return books (within limit) as it can often take longer than the sample listen to figure out you're not getting on with a narrator. Conversely, one you find narrators you love, you can find yourself listening to books you might not otherwise have chosen because you know it'll be well narrated. Full Review
Paul Booth Published date: January 12, 2018
It seems very hit and miss You buy a book with your credits one minute it will play. The next time you go back to your audio book it wont play Getting annoying Full Review
Allyson Hawley Published date: January 16, 2018
Can't stand the navigation since I switched to the Canadian account. Much harder to find new books, there is no sale section (have only found books on sale by accident) and the back button brings you to the library instead of back a page. Full Review
Marquis C Jones Sr. Published date: January 12, 2018
Being an avid reader of books I was a little hesitant to start the audio book journey. But once I tried Audible I've been hooked. Affordable, AWESOME customer service, easy to navigate. I won't ever leave this platform... Full Review
A Google User Published date: January 12, 2018
I love audible as a service. However, as someone who no longer has the service but does have Amazon prime I find it frustrating that I'm having problems listening to the featured books available to AP members. Always restart if interrupted or there is a lag spike. From chapter "what was I on 10? 12?" To chapter 1 0:00. Dx Full Review
Sarah Hannon Published date: January 15, 2018
Good but sometimes when I go back it has gone back to the start of the book and won't go forward to the chapter I was reading previously, I have to leave it for an hour and then check it again and skip forward. A bit annoying Full Review
Benjamin Kenon Published date: January 13, 2018
Audie is a great service. Its iOS app is flawless. Its Android app, on the other hand, is terrible. It constantly crashes, resets progress in my books, freezes, and randomly stops playback. Audible for Android needs to be trashed and rewritten from the ground up. Full Review
CONFLICT Published date: January 13, 2018
I'm subscribed and while it seems pricey, member benefits are 100% worth it, as you can return an audio book for whatever reason you see fit, and that will make sure you're satisfied with the cost of the membership. I'll gladly stay subscribed. Being able to return books is what made me decide to keep this. Full Review
Toni Higgs Published date: January 15, 2018
Great app as I process auditory information easier than large amounts of written information. Problem is I have the app on 2 devices but the stats don't match up even though I'm signed in to the same account on both. I listened to 38 minutes on my phone while out but my tab says that I haven't listened at all today. Full Review
brian young Published date: January 16, 2018
The app is great. I drive a lot for work so this is amazing for me. I listen to books more often than I listen to the radio now. You can learn so much just driving around. The Only thing that would be cool is if you could share books to friends or family. I know a audible is not in business to give away free books but I think if you could maybe share a book a month or something like that it might actually generate more income and more customers. A listener can listen to a shirt book and get hooked on a topic or author and be interested in purchasing more books. Full Review
Published date: January 11, 2018
I love Audible & usually listen in the car. My only quibble is with the last update. On my android phone it meant I lost all the "finished" tags on the books I had already listened to. As I have nearly 300 books in my library I had to try to remember which books I had already listened to & go through and manually re-tag them as finished!! ð Full Review
Stephanie Fronk Konneker Published date: January 17, 2018
Love audible! There is amazing books, Great narrators, and a fantastic return policy. I have listened to business books, pop science, history, super thick fantasy novels, chick lit, and parenting books. Makes great use of those mundane hours house painting, dishwashing, commuting, doing my nails.... Especially for parents of small kids. Audible is how I can keep reading. ð Full Review
Tom Agnetti Published date: January 10, 2018
I tried other services, including unlimited ones with a lower fee, but none compare to audible and they are so good with you being able to return a book if you don't like it. I also like how you can sync where you left off with a book you are also reading on Kindle. Full Review
Brian McKenney Published date: January 14, 2018
Good app. But when selecting a category and then looking to see what a book us about...then the app won't let you go back to the main listings of books ..you get returned to your library. Then you have to start all over again...please fix this Full Review
John McCartney Published date: January 11, 2018
Could be better. Searching using app doesn't allow language selection. Nor does it display titles that have been bought previously but updated as in library. Almost bought duplicate books several times due to this shortfall. Full Review
Trevor Lanphar Published date: January 16, 2018
It's exactly what you think. Someone reads you a book. Not my choice for a first read, but for re-listening to a favorite on a long drive, it's boss. Full Review
Tammy Gregory-Daughtrey Published date: January 15, 2018
I commute to work and I love being able to listen to a variety of subjects. Some people complain about the cost but it is a small sacrifice. I can learn something or lose myself in a great novel. What is not to love? Full Review
Tiffany Chin Published date: January 8, 2018
Store navigation is horrendous! If I press back from browsing, it takes me all the way back to my library! How am I meant to browse multiple books to see which one I'd like to purchase?Also back and forward buttons on my lock screen while I'm listening do not work at all. Would also be great if there was a custom feature to automatically rewind a few seconds when you play after pausing. Considering that with my subscription I can only listen to books on my phone, simple UI fixes would make the experience so much better. Full Review
Phoenix Blue Published date: January 15, 2018
A little pricey if you buy through Audible but the playback is great and it works seamlessly with Kindle. The subscription is not unreasonable and you get a free book every month you are subscribed. That's awesome. Full Review
Matt Rayson Published date: January 9, 2018
I love that my 1 Credit a month can be put towards any audiobook in the catalog. Audiobooks can be quite expensive in 40-50 hour ranges, so picking them up with just a single credit is amazing value. This is a great service. Full Review
Halvor GrÃ¸nlund Published date: January 15, 2018
Can't sign in with newest version with the app with correct login information (triple checked on computer), Samsung S6. Internet is also good so thats not a concern. Edit: i managed to log in, but swappibg between regional zones is a hassle!! Full Review
Jerry Dornback Published date: January 16, 2018
Selection is great. Subscription model is a bit misleading and the app itself could use some quality of life inprovements but the widget works fantastic and gets the job done Full Review
