Audible: Audio Entertainment Positive Reviews

Born of EarthBy A L. Knorr It was almost a year ago that I read this book, so when I found the opportunity to listen to it on Audible, I jumped at it. I am so glad that I did! With AL Knorr about ready to publish sequels to this book, it was an ideal time to review/listen to it. I have never reread any book as I always then knew what had happened. Life is short and books are many, but as I have aged, l remember only the basics of the story. As I listened to Born of Earth, the vivid writing came to life as if watching a movie and I was in Ireland with Georgie. I was there ten years ago, so pictures were brilliant in my mind of the land and people . i was amazed at how little I remembered of the details which brought the story to life. Listening to the reader was reminiscent of listening to radio stories in my childhood where imagination was able to “see” what was happening. So, I loved every minute of the book as if I had never read it. As Georgie grew to see the Fey and become a Wise, I wished to see Ley lines, and fairy buds, to hear the plants telling of what they can cure, and to sink feet into the earth. To read a story by A L Knorr is to enjoy a well-written book with strong characters, a great plot and a new experience unlike any other. But to listen to that same story is to experience it..Version: 3.74

Most used app I have aside from gpsLove this app so much. Had it for years and does not disappoint. Thank you for being here, existing and being in my life. Such a great idea and concept. Sorry it took me so long to rate this amazing app! Get it, you won’t regret it, so many wonderful title and books and not over priced! Update: This is still a great app but it needs to be said that the home tab is waaay too much noise visually speaking. Way too many suggestions and advertised books for an app. It’s not a clean look and honestly it’s ugly. The app needs a more sleek minimalist feel for ease of use. I literally get anxiety seeing the homepage with all the extra books recommendations, catalogues and so forth. When I use the app I just want to get to the point not be defaulted to a crazy looking page foot of book images. Please higher someone to update your app comestically. With the IOS update people are discovering less is more with widgets and less apps. Try to use that same concept, I want to see recommendations make it the last tab not the first. Have the first tab be the library and instead of a line chart of books maybe give the option of line display or chart display, just something more sleek please. Update 03 May 2021: The app skips the audio for some reason and when the screen goes dark it stops playing. Please fix this. This is pretty frustrating and my settings don’t have anything that causes this to happen..Version: 3.46

Finding MeViola Davis is incredible!! An incredible actor, person, mentor. I love love love listening to her recant her childhood, her life. The raw truth, the struggles, the pain, tragedy, disappointment, fear. The FORGIVENESS to her abusive dad. I cried a million tears because I was so touched that she was able to build a loving relationship with her dad despite it all……He knew she truly loved him unconditionally and left this life with that knowledge in his soul. It reminded me of my own dad 😭and our relationship. The courage to tell her story the good bad and the ugly. And there were plenty of ugly events that many would not survive. The love for the family despite their short comings. The sincere prayer to God to bring her Julius, the love of her life. Owning her roots and who she is, where she came from and where she is now. Not forgetting any of it. Ohhhhh, the trip to Africa. Gaining affirmation from the Mother Land that she is SOMEBODY…that we are all somebody and figuring out who that somebody is in this cruel world and taking a dignified stand. Standing tall as a beautiful, dark skinned sister, beautiful inside and out!! What an inspiration. Viola stated “The Purpose of Life is to Live It”. I’m so very inspired to live my life to the fullest, as tomorrow is promised to no one. Thank you Ms. Viola Davis….thank you. I loved it all. ME.Version: 3.75.1

Great Service at a premium priceAudible works great, I can find great titles, get samples of the voices, and I even get a free credit with the higher tier subscription with a few more “premium” titles. The issue for audible is turning the everyday subscriber into a customer; like myself. I pay $10 and watch hundreds of movies and tv shows that last a few hours to hundreds of hours depending on the title. The budgets are bigger, the price for the customer is lower. I pay $10 and listen to thousands of songs, many just a few minutes, some can be hours. I also enjoy podcasts... for no additional fee. Now we get to Audible where I pay $12, more than the others, and get 1 pick and like at an old movie store I become limited and find it difficult to choose the only free title I’ll get because the rest you have to pay for. I loved the audio books, but I’ll never stay a subscriber when I have other content for cheaper and without a secondary pay wall. I listened to a single book in a week, so that’s 4 books a month on average. Since only 1 is free, I could be paying $30, $50, $100 more for the other titles. I signed up with a free trial, stayed for a month after, but will sadly cancel after as they haven’t nailed down a way to monetize in a way that I can have access to hundreds of premium free titles for a low monthly cost..Version: 3.39

Can’t wait to get my hands on her next!This was one of those books that you not only savor, but you swap between physical and audio because you can’t get enough. The setting was perfect, the characters were hilarious, and the depth was just right. You follow Marin as she takes on a role she never thought she would be in.. PR and media manager for a rock band. But she not only crushes the position, she gains a crush on a band member. You follow along with the band and crew as they make their way all over the country on tour. You see them banter, you see them prank and you see them fall in love.. or lust. I usually have something to knit pick about whether it’s lack of charter build or creating an atmosphere you feel a part of, but Lisa did nothing for me to knit pick. This world was so well thought out, I can’t wait to dive into every single book I have of hers and also... I really need a prequel to see how Craig and Phoebe started. The only reason I gave this book a 4 rather then a solid 5 was I had a bit of a rough time with the big problem and how quickly it seemed to be resolved, I wish it would have been a little longer and we got to see more effort and what happened to.. patch things up on all accounts. I’m a girl who doesn’t trust easily and loses trust quickly so I have a hard with any story that someone’s forgiven too quickly..Version: 3.23

Better and better- not perfectThis 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..Version: 2.27

Vivid Beach Settings and Authentic Characters Learn to Find HappinessIt took a little more than usual for me to get into the book; at first,It started off feeling too much like a cliché, but that changed after the first few chapters. After reading the book, it almost feels like that was the author’s intention to provide a stark contrast for the character development throughout the book or possibly the author became a better writer once she fully built her world. I really enjoyed the vivid setting descriptions of the “Pond” and the city(really all of the settings were wonderfully sketched through words in the reader’s mind), the characters felt so authentic that I was sad when the story ended, and the structure was also essential to the plot: going between the past and present at various stages, but also within one day at the beach house in the present. It could get a little confusing at times, but this made me pay attention more so I didn’t mind. There were times when I was so angry at the main character, and mother(s), that I literally yelled at her (them)through my phone. It was never the main character’s fault, but she made so many poor, weak choices at times. It reminded me of the human flaws and regrets we all have or carry..Version: 3.55

Have No FearAfter listening to this audible with Joyce Meyer it made me understand my fears I have with calling my clients. Listening to scripture made me do it anyways- the Lord is on my side. I have been listening to Joyce’s sermons for over a decade and have purchased some of her books. “Do it afraid ,” is by far my favorite audible I will buy this book to keep on my shelves for reference. Being in sales can be challenging when you get a lot of “No’s by people over the phone, would make me want to quit! But listening daily to Joyce about other normal everyday people with their fears and overcoming them with the help of my Lord Jesus opens my eyes, to see how little my fears are. I would say to myself- just call the first 10 people - then it would be 20 people, then 50 - after my calls were made and I completed the task with the help of the Lord Jesus it would not be as bad as I thought. I would say a little prayer~ Thank you Lord that you are always here by my side helping me build my business and to keep my accountable in my daily tasks- in Jesus name Amen. Thank you Joyce Meyer for writing this book, and teaching me the scriptures in the Bible to help me daily do it Afraid but Not afraid anymore 🙏🏼 . Lillian from Los Angeles.Version: 3.85.1

Rising out of hatredAn amazing account of personal transformation. I too grew up with a racist father, surrounded by all of the rhetoric in this community. Awful. I love the courage it took for Roland-Derek to challenge his indoctrination and to find the strength to cut ties with beloved community, even family. That is the hardest part. For real. He said there is guilt in the interviews I’ve seen of his regarding what he helped create. Well, that was happening anyway. The good he has created through his total honesty, vulnerability and accountability - and willingness to speak publicly about it - stands taller and provides more light than any darkness the white nationalist... movement could ever create. He is a light bearer, and it is especially powerful and illuminating BECAUSE of his history. Roland-Derek provides an example of someone to challenge and think for himself within a fear-based, constraining movement. My hat is forever off to this gentleman, a man of TRUE wisdom and bravery while surviving the very human heartbreak of leaving a beloved community that no longer serves. He and Alison are putting their lives on the line by speaking out. I am grateful to Eli for penning this book, and all the others willing to allow their names into this story. Your courage and truth DEEPLY inspires me..Version: 3.35.2

I was at my wits end with how to change my lifeI literally was crying the other day from frustration at the knowledge that I create my own reality but did not know HOW. So there I was on the floor of my kitchen bawling my eyes out and suddenly I had a sense of peace come over me. A couple of days later, I searched in Audible the terms magic money manifesting and this book popped up. I honestly didn’t have much hope for it, because it seems like all of these books that claim to give a person techniques just re-hash the same old stuff. This author didn’t do that. He gives practical how to methods that explain different perspectives and details on how to REALLY harness your inner power and apply it to your life. I feel empowered. I took notes this book was so informational, I’m going to listen to it again! Don’t hesitate to get this book! It really will change your life. You can tell that the author spoke from the heart and put a lot of inspired work into this. Sitting on that floor I begged God to help show me how to use the power I know he gave us all to manifest a better life for me. And this book stood out to me. So that’s how I know it is special and must have been inspired. Prosperity and Goodness to you all!.Version: 3.51

Well done!This book is interesting. I am not a tech type guy and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It takes its reader through the history and background so we can understand where all the hubbub around 5G is coming from and the influence China and other influencers have had on the new technology and telephony technology in general. China is truly a bad actor but in a way you can’t blame them, they work under their own set of rules. Because they have long strategic plans for the CCP to control much of the world. To them there are no rules to getting to their destination. But we must not be enablers in there world domination. Early on we certainly shared way too much information and we did not protect our intelligence and innovation as we should have. But the good news is there are things we can do to reclaim prominence in the telephony field by unlocking innovation by reducing regulations. One of the things we must do is put country before pure profits by having good policies in tact to better protect America. Because this has such geopolitical concerns the US and private companies need to work much better together that in no way shape or form picks winners and losers. This is our big challenge going forward..Version: 3.75.1

Thank youI am the youngest of 4 children 2 of which have schizophrenia. The third I cannot confirm because she is estranged and does not share her diagnosis only to say if she had not had the years of therapy she had she would have been just like our brother. The irony is that she does not see how sick she is. At times I had to stop listening to the book to digest what I had heard and to shed a few tears to work through my own grief. I so relate to Lindsey Galvin in so many ways. The main difference is my siblings weren’t diagnosed until they were much older because they were not as severely symptomatic. All of this came to a head at my mothers passing in 2010. Then I truly learned how co dependent our family was. Some of us are healing the others I pray for. Reading this book made me feel that I was alone or the only one in this situation. I am truly grateful for all those who have research and continue to research on behalf of the ones that can’t. I am also relieved to know that the likelihood of my son and his children of having schizophrenia is very low. I have so much more insight into this condition now. I am now more curious than ever to learn of any new developments in treatment..Version: 3.77

Audible BooksI’ve been a member on/off for many years. You pay a monthly/annual fee and get credits based on your subscription. The fee you pay is often less than the price of most audiobooks. You can pay for the book or use a credit. There are lots of reviews, some are fake but most seem to be genuine. I like that you can hear a 3-5 minute sample before purchasing. I have gotten credits refunded for books I was unhappy with, (books I didn't listen to completely). Customer service has been great. I had to discontinue membership for a while and lost nothing during the time I canceled my membership. I kept the credits I already had and all of the books I had in my library. Starting my membership again was easy. I do wish that reviewers would add ore detail instead of simply saying ”I like the book”. That’s not a review. Why do you like/dislike the book? Was it clean, full of profanity, sex, violence? Was this book fit for the whole family? Did the story flow, was the narrator easy to listen to; did they have an annoying voice, were the characters voices distinguishable? That’s a review! A review is meant to help other customers decide if they want to purchase the book or not..Version: 3.12.1

I Love Audible...But...I’ve had Audible for nearly 5 years. I started as a way to help me get back to reading since physically reading was somewhat limited by reality. But now when I walk my dogs, run errands, go to the work related matters, drive for a long road trip, ride my bicycle, or even work in the kitchen, I always make sure to have books to listen to. My library has at least 300 by now, and I love seeing it grow. I also love the whisper sync for Kindle which lets me read or listen. I also love the integration with my Alexa devices. I can go from room to room without wasting my phone battery, and have her keep reading to me. Here are my only two recommendations:1- this is the most important. Please for the love of all that is holy let us organize our books by subject matter/ category or whatever we call it like we can in Kindle! I need to do this on my PHONE as I cannot scroll through the ALL my books to find old books I’ve forgotten are even there. I need to put them by category. Please please please do this most basic thing for your subscribers. 2- please have more whisper sync and more affordable ways to purchase kindle after purchasing the audible. Thank you..Version: 3.11.1

Incredibly helpful and easy to use ap!I am so impressed with this ap! I had caved on one of the ads for this ap on fb and saw that they had a free trial with two free books so I decided to try it. I listened to part of one book and then haven’t had much time to listen since and actually kinda forgot about it. I received an e mail today from audible which reminded me I needed to cancel my trial before being charged bc I wasn’t ready to pay the monthly subscription just yet and unlike most apps I found the customer service for this company was incredible! Right under settings in the ap lists a phone number and easy access to ur subscription information. I called the number to find out where I was in my trial and was impressed with how quickly they answered and told me I still had a few weeks left and she could cancel it now or I could enjoy the rest of it and call back to cancel the day before. She also returned the book I originally ordered bc I wasn’t that into it and now I have my two free book credits left! I highly recommend this ap to anyone bc of its easy to use settings, outstanding customer support, and wide section of books available! Great Job audible!.Version: 3.10.2

When you hear truth, believe itHighly suggest that you read The Way of Integrity. When heartbreak finds me most vulnerable I usually turn to Dante and reread his epic masterpiece The Divine Comedy. There is kinship in that journey for me. I am no great Dante scholar, but I was given the book when I was young to help deal with the loss of a great love and his journey has served me since. I scoured the many books that my friends have suggested in order to deal with a recent bout of nostalgic longing, maybe trying to convince myself that Dante was the best option once again, but eventually came across The Way of Integrity while eavesdropping on a conversation in a coffee shop. Listening to the sample and the reference to Dante gave me the motivation to take a flyer and make the purchase. Having just concluded this book I can honestly say that I intend to make it a part of my life going forward. The way Martha Beck understands Dante is so familiar to me, and her insights are honest, concise, and often perspectives that I had not before considered. I plan to attempt her many challenges and test my own integrity. We do not know when our souls guides will find us along the road, she is right about that..Version: 3.75.1

Save your eyesTruthfully speaking, I have never been a fan of reading. This is a bit ironic being I hold a MSBA in business. But then after discovering Audible, wow I’m amazed with all that I am listening to. In my profession, I’m on the computer several hours in any given day. So by days end the last thing I want to do is pick up a physical book and read. Seriously, I use to turn articles into PDFs , use the computer ‘listen to’ feature, bout music in the background and write notes for my class. An occasional glass of wine certainly helped. One podcast for a required class (book was online) the professor who narrated the book was so monotone you’d fall asleep. By the end of the class session in the podcast I would have a great nap. So instead I went to the gym, Wales on the treadmill and stayed awake. The pint is that wa 14 years ago and technology as well as people’s skill have evolved over time for the greater good. I would especially live to thank audible for creating this platform and the many authors and narrators who provide valuable content. I’m constantly inspired and appreciate being an Audible ‘Superfans.’ Thank you from the bottom of my heart..Version: 3.41.1

Her life was saved by Rock and RollCincinnati Ohio-where I grew up In the 50’s was like an over stuffed chair, inviting thoughts of comfort but quickly becoming carnivorous, a Venus fly trap for the soul. Across the river in Newport Ky, there were “sepia” record stores, where we could listen to “colored” vocalists and groups ,nightclubs where we, as under age kids, could just walk in and hear the likes of Chuck Berry. I was smitten. This was hope personified. Rock and Roll gave joy and connection, a perfect lens. Turning on that tan Philco radio in our kitchen as I rolled in for breakfast was a daily necessity to turn the day into a rainbow. Jann Wenner perfectly captures his Rolling Stone magazine and the culture it shaped. One could enjoy it strictly from that perspective. Of course he is a great writer. For those of us who read every single issue from start to finish though it is so much more. One could say the book is a memoir but it is a cultural bible of the times. I loved listening to every word. It is a beautifully told chronicle of a few magical decades. It is only Rock and Roll but I like it. Thank you Jann Wenner for sharing. It means more than I can say. You will never be finished ax long as you are breathing,.Version: 3.85.1

Disappointed with App ChangeI’ve been an avid member for I’m thinking at least a decade and I just discovered that you have removed all my reading statistics and levels of accomplishment in the app. Naturally I won’t quit but I loved that aspect of the app and it gave me a continued sense of achievement and accomplishment. Please return this feature it means so much to me or show or tell me where you moved it to. Thanks for listening. I have now discovered that my review above is not exactly correct the statistics are still there. However, because I had two accounts, recently consolidated into one the one I have remaining shows me as having achieved scholar while in fact I have long since passed Master level. That bothers me greatly. May seem a small issue to but not I. Also, what’s the level above Master as when your records are updated I will surpass that easily. Even if you don’t make the update I will still obliterate Master level and there must be others. Anyway once I hear from you I will update to 5 stars. Finally, I wish you would find a way where I can find and purchase books inside the App if apple don’t like it so what, just buy them out and make a better policy..Version: 2.34

You Owe YouThis was an easy book to read along/ listen to. Dr. Thomas’ intentional use of simple language makes the principles highlighted in his book accessible to a wide range of readers. This made me feel inspired to examine my own core values and create a plan for myself and my family to create the life we deserve to have. you owe you is a gift to the global community, for anyone who is looking for meaning and purpose in their life. It is an honest reflection on what I’m sure was a difficult journey to self discovery, and legacy building. When you are going somewhere it is much easier to navigate when you have a clear sense of direction. But when you are the first in your family to accomplish so much the only direction you have is your faith and your companions along the journey. You Owe You provides that clear sense of direction to cut down the time it would take someone to reach the destination of purpose. By following the principles outlined in this book and applying them to your own life you will receive the fulfillment of clarity of purpose and self mastery. Enjoy the read and your own journey to answering the question what do You owe YOU?.Version: 3.81

Bring back option to hide finished titles, for 5 Stars.I’ve been an audible member for about 20 years ( whenever the service started). I have well over 1000 titles in my library (most purchase, prior to new system, with free titles). I occasionally listen to portions of one book, before switching over to another (especially, when a desired preorder becomes available). Previously, it was easy to locate books that I needed to return to, by hiding all finished titles. Since the new system was unveiled, this has been reversed. I don’t quite understand the utility of being able to see all titles in your library that you have already completed. Showing titles that you haven’t started is if some use, but it fails to show anything that even has a few seconds played. So if I accidentally tap on the wrong title and get past “This is Audible”, prior to going back and selecting the title I actually want, it will no longer show up as not started. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!! Please fix this for your most loyal members!!! A secondary improvement would be to extend the Apple Watch Complication, so that it will permit control / book selection of titles on your paired iPhone, rather than having to download the book to your watch..Version: 3.36

This should be a 5-star review-30 second rewind goneUnfortunately recent updates of the app changed what was an elegant solution to an important feature to one that doesn’t work at all. In past versions Audible app had a feature that quickly allowed you to change the rewind or advance buttons from ones that rewound to the beginning or ends of a chapter to one that changed the buttons to rewound or advance 30 seconds only. Even better you could tap these buttons multiple times and, for example, quickly replay a short passage you need to hear again. The most recent updates killed this value-added feature and made it so you have to swipe backwards and forwards an indeterminate time. This feature is value taken away! I am an avid listener and have purchased almost 600 books from Audible. The content and some of the narration are excellent. I hope they pay attention to their frequent listeners and fix their clunky new software versions to the great tools they had until recent releases. It is frustrating when an app you use regularly changes from excellent to mediocre..Version: 3.23

Loses my placeI love listening to books and have been enjoying that there are so many available on audibles. I keep encountering problems though...I prefer to listen at 1.25 speed and it reverts back to 1.0 with every pause. I’ve learned I must bookmark frequently because I will undoubtedly be at the beginning of a book no matter where it left off (it divides books into fours and each of the 4 has chapters 1-11 or so, so book 2 has chapters 1-11 too instead of 12-21 making it close to impossible to figure out where you are...at minimum very time consuming.) and have to listen to recognize whether or not I’ve been there yet. Also, I’ve learned to listen to what chapter the narrator names just so I will be able to find my soon to be lost place in the event that the bookmark too fails. The version of the app that comes up on my iPhone quickly doesn’t have bookmarks, so I have to hit the home button, find the actual app and only there can I reset the speed and set the bookmark or retrieve a bookmark. I find the most frustrating thing is that it keeps returning to the beginning of the “book” I was in instead of the place in the chapter..Version: 2.29

Best app I have, but can’t transfer from my iPhone or iPad to my WatchI’ve been an Audible member for over 15 years (well before being merged w/Amazon). It’s my favorite App and I use it more than any other. I have ADHD and LOVE to read but get stuck trying to read traditional books and retain the story or information. With Audible I’ve averaged almost 5 books per month with each book’s average length of about 11hrs. Here’s the big “but”. I have Audible Apps on my iPhones, iPads and MacBook but it won’t relay to either of my two watches. I get unnecessary Apps like JetBlue but no Audible. If anyone knows what I can do to fix this I would be grateful. Being able to listen to Audiobooks without my iPhone nearby would be incredibly useful but I just cannot figure out why it won’t show up on my list of Apps on my Watches. Despite my Watch problem I give this App my highest recommendation. This goes especially for my brothers and sisters that suffer from ADHD, impaired vision or other maladies that makes tradition reading difficult or impossible. It’s an awesome subscription service and App especially if you’re more successful than me in getting it on your Apple Watch..Version: 3.5

Revisiting Justine at 70I think this is the third time I’m making my way through the Alexandria Quartet, my life’s most rewarding literature, by the exquisite wordsmith and storyteller, Lawrence Durrell, also great friend and admirer of my other literary hero, Henry Miller. Justine is the first of the quartet, and perhaps my favorite, and no matter how many times I read it or hear it, it is always fresh, literately exciting, and enlightening to me. Such insight Into love, jealousy, intrigue, life, and death. I remember when I first read it, perhaps 50 years ago, with a dictionary. It feels so different now, no longer in my years of great sexual passion, but older, wiser, and more humbled by life. I highly recommend listening to Durrell, particularly with this reader, Nigel Anthony, because I have heard other readers chew up the scenery; while Mr. Anthony has created more subtle characterizations and offers Durrell‘s literature as the great feast it is. I think you’ll agree that listening to a great book with a good reader is a very different experience than having read it before yourself. I look forward to the next three books with unbounded literary hunger and excitement. Enjoy......Version: 3.51

If you’re a Business owner, you need to read this book, especially if you existed pre-COVIDIf you’re a Business owner, you need to read this book, especially if you existed pre-COVID and trying to get back on track, it gives you incentive and advice on how to get back on “hustle” mode to get back to where you used to be at minimum, the maximum depends on your desired success level... I’m going to the top. It made me realize I was slacking in some areas and put my brain on think mode to not only hustle harder but yes smarter (great title by the way). Im not a hard cover fan but decided to order the physical book anyway (the soft cover isn’t scheduled to be released until late September and that’s too long to wait,I’m ready now) as I’m a physical reader and need the book to take notes which I’ve book marked throughout. I purchased it 3 days ago and have listened to it twice already (thank God for Airpods😆) and plan on listening to it again, this time making notecards... you catch something different every time. I’m not sure which one to thank, Curtis Jackson or 50 cent🤷🏽‍♀️... How about I thank him as a whole ☺️..Version: 3.51

Everyone should love booksI love the Audible app because it allows me to enjoy a good book even while driving or other activities that prevent reading a book while doing them. RIF was a program I loved in school, many of my classmates would have me pick out books and they would get them and give them to me because they didn't like reading and knew I loved to do so. At the time I was happy to get more books to enjoy though looking back I wish I had tried harder to share my love of reading with my classmates. My one real gripe is regarding two issues related to playback, the volume max can vary quite a bit from one narrator to another I presume due to production methods or settings so I would appreciate an ability to make the volume louder than currently possible especially when using the built in speaker on a mobile device. The second issue is that when listening to a book in the background and playing any of a number of games that sadly force you to watch ads occasionally to play for free it can sometimes fail to allow restarting the narration after the ads and rather default to any random music file you have on the device..Version: 3.38

Some people think owning a restaurant is glamorous. This will make you think twice!Having owned two restaurants, I can tell you it is one of the hardest jobs you'll ever have! So much about running a restaurant… all the ins and outs are in this book. I could relate to a lot of what the authors were writing about. They hit the nail on the head that's for sure! I recommended this book to my book club. Someone gave it to me for my birthday after I had seen the owners of The Grey on the Sunday Morning Show. My book club will be meeting tomorrow night and I'm anxious to see how people felt about the book. One of the things that I really liked about it was hearing their perspectives on the same situation. The other thing I really enjoyed was the sharing of recipes. I have requested that everyone bring a dish from the book. This is going to make for some good eaten!!! I'm planning to bring the cocktails. The evening will begin with the Paper Plane and to finish the evening The Revolver... just one not two😉 I live in Augusta, Georgia, which is not too far from Savannah. I'm hoping to make it to the restaurant one day soon!.Version: 3.80

Newest Watch update good and badThe most recent update for Apple Watch was at first very exciting until I realized that to find the book I wanted to listen to I had to scroll through EVERY BOOK I OWN ALPHABETICALLY 🤨🤨🤨. I have over 1000 books and trying to scroll down all the way to the R or T titles takes forever. They only have three options to sort recent, title, downloaded. These can be useful but there should be a way to sort based on what is downloaded on the iPhone app. It would also be very useful to have the current listen on iPhone to be at the top of any list so you can easily download it to your watch. I am very very pleased to no longer have to rely of my phone to download books to watch. The app on my phone is great I saw some reviews that don’t like the home page with recommendations and such I personally think it’s great it points me to books I may not come across otherwise and the next in your series list it really useful. I wish I could give this a full five+ stars but there needs to have some refinement and additional options in browsing- but please don’t take away from what you have done for the way you downloaded books and the other items in the updates!!!.Version: 3.82.1

Break ShotFabulous. Started it one night, finished it that night. Started it again, finished it again. I think I’ll enjoy being in this loop for the rest of my life. Thank you James. You’re 6 months older than me and we’ve had so many similarities in life, minus the hard drug addiction - yet I’m not sure that glass of white wine each evening I’d give up so easily. My family has had its troubles and now my daughter. It’s a family affair. I have those cocktail napkins that read: “Mental illness runs in my family, in fact it gallops.” So, I’d like to tell you how soothing it was to discover your book, your story, after all that music and, oh yes, those fabulous lyrics. I am proud of you in every single way and I wish you nothing but light and joy. I’d like to thank you for writing and singing the music that got me through the loneliness of young adulthood and which still comforts me in old age. I recommend your book, music and sensibilities to everyone from teenagers to 100+ years. As I listened each time to your book, I am renewed. As an agnostic person, I guess it’s as though you took me to church!.Version: 3.81.1

Great selection of books, but I have a few complaintsI like this app specifically because of the variety of books on it, but there are some things that really bother me. For one, the cheaper subscription gives you limited access to the audible library, which I find disappointing and annoying. Then when I switched to the more expensive subscription I found out I’m not even allowed to get multiple books with my subscription anymore! I don’t know when that changed, but it wasn’t like that a few years ago when I first started using the service. The first time I had an audible subscription I was allowed to download multiple books with it and accumulate credits to spend on extra books. So after coming back to audible and re-registering for a subscription I was extremely disappointed and frustrated by the fact that you can ONLY use you single credit a month to download books, even if you bought the most expensive subscription. I think this change is ridiculous and I would be a lot happier is audible switched back to how it was years back when I had my first subscription..Version: 3.71

Enroll In Drive-time UI absolutely love audible! Rarely do I listen to music any longer because I always have an audiobook on the go. In my case, almost everything I listen to is related to business or personal development and it is such a good way to stay engaged in my continual growth and education. Having said that, the vast majority of my listening time comes solely while I’m driving, time that I would have otherwise wasted. What an incredible way to work on yourself, your goals, and your aspirations without having to take additional time out of your busy day to sit down and read. I have also started using audible as a means of filtering the books I am willing to read as I tend to be the write in the margins, take notes, and underline kind of guy while reading, and that’s just a time consuming effort. Now rather than going through that process with a book that I don’t find to be quite as beneficial, I am able to listen to more and filter out only those which are going to be the best so I can focus my reading/study material on only that which will be the most beneficial and applicable to me at the time..Version: 3.36

Heart changer!Lysa does an amazingly transparent, simple, compelling and vulnerable job in describing and walking out forgiveness. While so much of this book is stuff that we know the way she goes about it is very refreshing and encouraging. Sharing her own journey and experiences in an honest and raw way is Incredibly helpful, challenging and inspiring. The inclusion of bitterness and codependency is a powerful component of this book.I will read the book again. I will do the study. And I will recommend it to others. You don’t have to be going through or have gone through what Lysa did in order to benefit from this book. I believe it’s a book that everyone should read. While every part of it will be for everyone I believe everyone can get something life-changing from it. here are two quotes that I loved from the end of the book about forgiveness. “ Even the most imperfect messy forgiveness filled with hesitation and resistance is better than letting bitterness have its way with your heart.” “You don’t have to cooperate with forgiveness perfectly just progressively for it to be good.”.Version: 3.40

Updated review.Still great. Still no Audible for Apple Watch! I really hope you will provide this great service on Apple Watch!Please make an Audible app for Apple Watch there are some nice improvements, but I can't focus on them as long as my chief gripe isn't addressed. At the very least, please tell your loyal customers whether you are trying to do this--or if you are even considering it. Audible is one of the apps I use out often. I bought an Apple watch so I could listen to audiobooks while walking my dog and could leave my iPhone at home sometimes. I have seen some work-arounds, but so far have not been able to listen to audiobooks on my watch. Audible doesn't show any inclination to develop an Apple watch app. I have asked. I guess I will try purchasing an audio book from iTunes, and see if that works. If it does (which I am not optimistic about) I might have to make my walking purchases from iTunes instead of Audible. I wouldn't like to ditch my Audible account to completely, as I love it. The hundreds of dollars I have spent on Audible books proves that. But I disappointed at this apparent indifference to the requests of Audible's most loyal customers..Version: 2.34

New bugs cropping up recentlyThis app used to be great. Recently though, whenever I try to use it, there are annoying lags in responsiveness. I press play and it won’t play for 10 seconds. Or I try to view my cloud library and have to wait a few seconds before the app will switch from device view to cloud. The Bluetooth connection has also become glitchy, especially when connected to my car system - I press pause on my car’s screen and it takes a few seconds to pause, then starts again, then finally pauses, over the course of another 5 seconds. The app also no longer responds if I try to control play with my phone while it’s connected to my cars bluetooth (at least, it didn’t today). Lastly, if I’m in the library tab and want to look up info on a downloaded book, I can’t just tap the three dots at the right hand side of the book without the book starting to play. This is annoying if I’m currently listening to something (or talking to someone on the phone - the book still starts playing!) and want to look up info on a book. I’ve been using this app for a few years, and this is the first time I’ve really been frustrated with it. Until now, it’s mostly operated smoothly..Version: 2.35

Mobile Version FantasticI really like like the fact that I can download Audible books using my iPhone. It used to be you had to download a book to your desktop or laptop, load it into iTunes and then sync my iPod with my MacBook. I was admitted to the hospital from my doctor's office through emergency. I couldn't go home and pick up my MacBook and iPod. I was so surprised and very happy to find the Audible mobile app in the Apple App Store. I was able to download books to listen to. It took my mind off being stuck in the hospital and after years of living on the road for work I’ve come to find listening to an audiobook to block out annoying sounds. I want to add another great feature I’ve found. This mobile app not only knows which books I already have in my library it also knows which book is next in the series for books that are in a series. Update: At some point the Apple Watch app was dropped so I can no longer control the volume and skip forward and backward on my watch while the audio book is playing on my MacBook, iPad or iPhone. I’d really like to see thes feature added back..Version: 2.29

A must listen for every human soulI have read many works of fiction in which great truths were revealed. Books like the Shack which reveal an understanding of the triune nature of God, Who Moved My Cheese - a motivational story on the importance of learning to adapt to changing environments but I have never read a fictional book (written 80 years ago) that does such an incredible job of taking some of the core messages of the Bible and weaving them into an entertaining and impactful message. To consider this book was written more than 80 years ago and so accurately describes not only the trajectory of the decades that followed but also the current state of human affairs it warrants a read by even the most skeptical of people who do not believe we exist in the middle of a conflict of good and evil. I am shocked this book has evaded my notice up until now but I am thankful it was recommended to me by a good friend. I encourage anyone who reads this review to listen to this book with an open heart and mind. Enjoy the brilliance of CS Lewis and his writing ability but do not miss the message which is rooted in biblical truth..Version: 3.76.1

Love this appI love Audible! Audible has one of the largest selection of books that I have ever had on a audiobook app. There is something for everyone. I have been reading Harry Potter and I am on Prisoner of Azkaban. For the past 2 books that I have read, I have gotten to sleep a lot faster. Before Audible, I would stay up all night because I was bored, but now I go to bed at 9:30 at the latest! Also, the people reading the books really match the vibe of the book. Great examples include the Dork Diaries series and Harry Potter series. Both of those readers read the stories in voices that match the book. Next, like I said, on Audible there is something for everyone. I have really enjoyed reading a book called the Golden Orchard and before, I would have never imagined myself reading a book like this. After your first book, I think that Audible takes you interest and suggests you books that are like the books you like or something totally different all together. Overall Audible is a total must have if you struggle with getting to sleep. 😃.Version: 3.37

Really nice way to hack my lifeI started using Audible a month or two ago when I realized that there are significant blocks of time in my life that I am not using as well as I would like. Specifically, the time I spend driving or exercising constitutes up to two hours per day that are necessary but not very intellectually stimulating. I had been listening to music when I exercised, and then it dawned on me that I could just as easily listen to audiobooks. There are any number of books I want to read but don’t because I have a hard time getting to them. Audible has helped solve that problem for me. Initially I thought listening rather than reading would be an inferior experience, but in fact after listening to a few books I’m finding that my attention and retention are comparable. Whenever possible I try to co-purchase the audio book with a Kindle version so I can switch between reading and listening. I think Kindle’s “whispersync” system for switching back and forth could be improved, but I can live with it. Overall I’ve been really pleased with the Audible experience..Version: 2.31.2

Watchers by Dean KoontzI first read watchers when I was in my early twenties, I had read other novels by Dean Koontz, The Door To December and Strangers were two of my favorites, and he was one of my favorite writers. I bought Watchers in hard cover when I saw it on the shelf and knew it was going to be good because Dean always entertained but I wasn’t prepared for the roller coaster of emotion that this novel would take me through. It was definitely high adventure and I already loved dogs but this story really opened my heart and mind to just how extraordinary they are. Watchers, like a few other novels that I’ve read has become like and old friend that’s always there, I’ve read the story many times over the years and it’s always been one of my most highly recommended books to read but unlike others, this one is in my heart. After many years I decided to experience Watchers in an audio book and again it didn’t disappoint. I laughed and I cried and I was once again transformed by this truly extraordinary tale! I love the characters like family, crazy right? Thank you, Dean..Version: 3.82

From 5 stars to one in one easy updateThe most recent update (for iPad at least) has made the controls for playing an audiobook very inconvenient. Previously, on a book’s main page it was possible to toggle between moving forward and backward between chapters and moving either backwards or forwards by 30 second increments. Now only moving by chapters is allowed on the book’s main page. A user has to exit the book’s page to the mini player at the bottom of the book list or home page to be able to move backward by 30 second increments, and the ability to move forward by 30 second increments has been removed completely. Scrolling through the book, as always, is really only useful for moving backwards and forward by several minutes and is difficult to use for small increments. There have been changes to how action options can be accessed that are nice, but the change to the playback controls is so bad it overshadows any other good that might have been done. I’m very disappointed..Version: 3.22

I love the productI love the product, I’ve been listening to all sorts of books since I started driving across the country for work. I like how you can download books and listen to them going over the mountains where you don’t have reception. I do not like how it crashes sometimes when there is not great signal. Sometimes even when the book has been downloaded to the device, the app won’t play the title because it can’t connect to the server. It’s very annoying when you straight up don’t have reception for 45 minutes through the mountains. I also wish they had a section of the search/library for “series” that would keep the books in chronological order. I was listening to a couple of series using the plus catalogue and didn’t know what the next book was. It would tell you only at the end of the book, but since I drive and sometimes didn’t have reception, it wasn’t always a option. Also, hitting next in series would usually not give you the option to listen to the title without purchasing, even when it was “included” if you did a normal search for it..Version: 3.55

EXCELLENT STORYThere are two things listeners value most in an audiobook; one is a well-written, engaging story, and the second is a narrator with a clear, engaging voice. Rustlers Heist has both of these characteristics, and prolific author, Kasey Riley, always delivers. She has created the fictional Colorado town of Riverview, a small ranching community, and populated it with characters readers will enjoy. Sheriff Megan Holloway is the protagonist in this story as she copes with riders lost in the mountains, the town's only jewelry store robbed in broad daylight and the owner assaulted, a stolen vehicle, an elderly resident with a bullet wound, cornered in his cabin, and even some cattle rustlers who know beef is a valuable commodity. When Sheriff Megan feels overwhelmed and overloaded, the receptionist in her office quits abruptly, and Megan begins to wonder if she may have had a hand in some of these nefarious activities. Suspecting someone and gathering hard evidence are two different things, but slowly the clues come together. Are these a series of random acts, or are these events somehow connected? Kasey Riley keeps her readers guessing, so if you like mysteries, don't miss Rustlers Heist..Version: 3.84

Incredibly practical and informativeThis is a must listen to for any man that is interested in his psychological, emotional or spiritual life. This is not a bunch of Bible thumping or religiosity, although some scripture is used but in a very practical manner as far as how to live a better life every day as well as continue to grow through adversity and the seasons of life. Even my girlfriend found aspects of it super useful, so I think I’ll vote for men this is the type of Spiritual Food that are churches are not giving us. It is far beyond following the rules to get to heaven or being stuck in your head intellectually about religion. It’s about a lifestyle, and there’s a lot of research quoted about the problems men have throughout life starting off with poor relationships with their fathers. And if we don’t work on that stuff we passed the pain along to our family, friends and those around us. Pain that is not transformed is transmitted. If you want to be a better boyfriend or husband, son, father, grandfather or just a better man for your neighborhood and community this is a must listen to..Version: 3.75.1

Many faultsWhere is the free category? Can’t buy and download directly in the app? Seriously!?!? Work it out with Apple! I’m sure you can find a way..Version: 3.1.2

Terrible UXIt should not be this difficult to BUY something from a company. I should be able to make purchases inside the app or at least click a button that would take me directly to an outside URL where I can pay for the item I want. Will delete app after listening to a podcast series only on Audible..Version: 2.27

There could be major improvements to this appThe app worked better before, after all these updates the app for IOS is very flaky. Cuts out, freezes, stops, won’t load, a whole mess of things. My rating has gone down for this app since the quality has gone down significantly..Version: 3.1.1

Frustrating despite great UII like the UI of the Apple Watch app. The big play/pause button in the middle works great. I like how I can slide the same button to the left to rewind. Good design. However, I’ve deleted the app. Why? Because it does not remember where I was and keeps going back to the beginning. I cannot stand it. It’s just too frustrating. This lack of position remembering and syncing with the iPhone completely ruined the user experience despite the good UI design. I’ll use the app again only if this fatal defect is fixed..Version: 3.0.1

Thank you Tim!Tim is my mentor. I am so blessed..Version: 3.69.1

Too many glitchesRandomly crashes and can’t remember your place. Cannot sync between devices. Doesn’t allow for varying skips forward and back. The free library app is better and the books aren’t outrageously priced..Version: 3.4

Phone app is good, Watch app is super annoyingThis is a tough review to write. The iPhone app is pretty awesome. It works very well most of the time with only the occasional crash. (It also sometimes does not play well with my car’s audio system, but I suspect that’s more about my Hyundai than it is a failing of the Audible app!) The Apple Watch app, however is a complete train-wreck. When you’re playing an audiobook on your phone, it completely takes over your watch and DEMANDS that you feed it a book. You can try to dismiss it, but it just pops back up and tells you again how you can sync a book to your watch. Again and again and again. It is evil. Once you’ve sacrificed a book to the watch app (which takes FOREVER!), you then get player controls that, again, can’t be dismissed. When you’re playing an audiobook, you no longer have a watch. You have an Audible remote control. That is all you can do. Funny thing is that without the Audible watch app installed, you still have control using the built in Now Playing function so the app literally adds nothing except the ability to listen to audiobooks when you’re not near your phone and endless, endless annoyance. Best thing you can do is uninstall it as soon as possible..Version: 3.0.1

Everyone should read or hear this book!Fabulous book full of humour and excellent points! For those with pre-conceived notions of Milo being this horrid person, I challenge you to actually listen to what he has to say. You may not agree with absolutely everything, but I'm sure if you're a rational human being, you'll survive and probably even learn!.Version: 2.27

Easy to useAm enjoying the ease of use of this app and the availability of audiobooks. Would recommend getting..Version: 3.58.1

MehAppleWatch sync is not working and you can't view your full library between your amazon.ca and amazon.com accounts without signing in and out every time..Version: 3.68

Then it would be Perfect ...I love the app. And all the extras. I love that I can add notes. It would love if they had “CC” closed captions. They mentioned it in a YouTube... but must be bata still ?.Version: 3.38

How Many Years Has It Been?I can’t remember how many years it’s been that I’ve been listening to books through this App. I was there at the beginning. Audible puts me to sleep at night and Audible has accompanied me on thousands upon thousands of road miles. This app is still doing the job - nothing fancy, it's a vehicle for enjoying the varying content in the audiobooks..Version: 3.37

Literally changed my lifeAnyone who knows me knows I'm dyslexic and I hate to read, I hate typing even more and have never liked it. Since graduating highschool I've probably gone threw 8-12 books as I found them to be a pain. This year I decided that my new years resolution was to listen to audio books. I've gone threw over 80 books and it's only September. I'm crushing them while I'm driving and working out. I've lost 40lbs and my dog is even healthier because we're walking more. I got a promotion at work because I have more information and I'm helping out in more ways. Honestly I wish someone would have told me that this was a real option sooner..Version: 3.33
