Audible audiobooks & podcasts Positive Reviews
Love this app, I live off it! Collections are inspired!My favorite app. I use it every day.
Update to recent post for your most recent upgrade to your app. I absolutely love the fact that I can put books into collections. I think it’s probably one of the greatest improvements to the app up to date! So thank you!!
Having said that after a bunch of updates a changes they've changed many things that make it not as fun to work with or use. I literally live off this app, because I'm fully disabled and it's the only way I can make it through the day without going insane 99% of the time. Please forget this new clip thing. Why would anyone want that? Go back to general bookmarks. And every single time you do a drastic update like this, I loose all of my books that are not downloaded to my device for like a week. This is getting ridiculous. I shouldn't loose my books every time you update! So once again I only have 25 books, and I have to figure out how to get back 225ish books, unless you guys do another update and I miraculously get them back or I loose them again after I've just gotten them back. Please fix all these errors. And maybe, just maybe, you should send surveys out to ALL of your customers to see if they even want this crazy stuff you think we do before you change our perfectly acceptable bookmarks to clips. Or if you want to keep both for heavens sake make them separate. They are too incongruent to keep together..Version: 3.26.1
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
ABSOLUTELY LOVE-please fix sleep timerI ABSOLUTELY LOVE my audible app!! I’m an avid listener & overall have not had any issues. Once I purchase a book it automatically (within seconds) appears in my library for download which is EXCELLENT transition time.
My only minor complaint is when I use the sleep timer and turn it off BEFORE the time has run out, it ALWAYS goes to sleep 2 minutes after I turn OFF the timer. I turn off the timer because I want to continue listening without sleep timer on. Yes I know TWO minute is minor issue but can be very annoying waiting for story to stop in 2mins so I can restart play! So would appreciate the fix in next update.
My thought on new update is a way to arrange our library. Right now they’re arranged by purchase date until you listen& then it’s most recent listen. I would love ability to separate by author, type, book series etx. Something like that would be great for finding old favorites.
EVEN BETTER IDEA...if you could develop an alert to let readers know when there is a NEW BOOK RELEASE IN SERIES we already own! When you have large library it’s hard to remember what books your waiting on the next in series! Would DEFINITELY increase my already long list of purchases.
Overall GREAT JOB! I RECOMMEND ALL THE TIME! Just fix the 2mins turn off glitch when I turn OFF timer (before it runs out) & please consider library organization ideas!.Version: 3.9
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
Love it!UPDATE: another several years in, and Audible is still the app I use EVERY day. Because it is the best! Bug fixes and design tweaks have kept it moving forward, without ever making me think “aw it was better before the update.” (Looking at you, iPhone!). Audible is the only app I would take with me to a desert island. Yes. It’s that good.
UPDATE: it’s been 8 years now and other than the text messaging apps, Audible is easily the most frequently used and loved app in my phone, by far. With the recent improvement so it’s now possible to buy new audiobooks with credits through the app, it’s even better. Audible, I’m your #1 fan!! (Apologies to Stephen King.)
I've been using this app daily for over 2 years now and love it. Are there bugs? Yes. Is it perfect? No. But the problems others complain about are really minor to me. Sleep isn't on the main screen, but one touch brings it up. For me what's relevant is how vast an improvement this player is over the only other I've used, Overdrive, which feels like something out of the Middle Ages by comparison. I know the Audible app's quirks and don't have a problem with them, because it works beautifully. Every day. <3.Version: 3.38.2
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Useless and rude customer serviceI loved the app until I upgraded my phone. (iphone XR)The app wouldn’t let me play back anything. I called and they attempted to help me troubleshoot the problem. It’s the app not the phone. Nothing worked so they had to create a ticket. They told me it would take up to five days to hear back from the back office team. Five days seem like a lot. I used this app daily. The next day I called back to see if someone else could help me. He looked at the ticket and told me the full details of my issue weren’t even on the file. We updated the ticket tried to help me troubleshoot still no results.7 days later still no call back. So I called again and was given answers like “I don’t know when they’ll call you” or “I don’t know,maybe” when I asked to speak to someone else because this gentleman did not have any answers for me his reply was “why do you want speak to someone else”. I had to hang up because he wouldn’t let me talk to anyone else. I purchased over $50 in credits before this happened. I canceled the morning that fees but let’s see how that goes..Version: 3.4
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
Gratitude for audio booksI’m very grateful for audiobooks. As a child I struggled with reading. I always had difficulties and shame because I didn’t read as fast as other children and found it difficult to retain the information I read. I would have to re-read sentences, passages, pages, and chapters because I would read the words but not formulate a picture or the information being imparted. I disliked and refused to read book up into a young adult. As an adult reading books has become significantly easier, but I still struggle with speed reading and retaining the information. Time has also become very limited in which to sit, or lay down and pick up a book and read. I find myself able to listen to audiobooks while getting ready in the morning for work, driving to and from locations, doing daily activities while at home or running errands, and getting ready for bed. Without audio books I could have never gone through the multitude of books which impart so much knowledge and stories to enchant the mind.
Thank you Audible.Version: 3.5
This is what you've been looking for...This catalogue will provide the reader an intelligence level briefing that you will need to logically evaluate the current data coming from the Pentagon as well as the "New Age" folks. You will also find this useful if you've been lucky enough to have seen them yourself, because you will find that it has been reported by someone else in the past. This may aid in putting your sighting in context because we all know you can't let it go. All the craft classes are catalogued here, allowing the reader can begin to find patterns in history or geography. Don't mind the negative reviews, the author is quoting the most reputable researchers in addition to his own research. The greatest contribution of this work is the neatly organized fashion of data points allowing a picture to emerge. You can interpret the data yourself. The author does not inject analysis except for the last chapter. But even that is musing on possibilities. You will have a fuller picture of the phenomenon after listening or reading this work and isn't that what your after?.Version: 3.27
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
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
So. Many. Updates.Ok, so literally every update has an MASSIVE update to the UX. And that’s fine, but when you’re shifting the UX for an app in such a fundamental way, you really should be *improving* it. I’ve been an audible member since at least 2009 and while I know I’m a bit old school, I do think I shouldn’t have to search my entire library for the book I’m downloading- I think it should autosort like it used to do that it’s automatically on to. I know I probably have an issue as I’m rounding on 1000 books in my library but we all have our hoarding things 😉 Genres are great but it would be awesome if they’d collapse them down into parent categories (children’s audiobooks vs kid’s?). Also, PLEASE bring back the pop-up that asks whether or not you want to skip to the synced point or not. The banner isn’t reliable and it’s so annoying to have to waste time to go to the beginning every time I want to relisten to a book, whereas before I just used to be able to click once. I’m not a huge fan of the new Home Screen, and I’d love the option to be able to just be able to show your library every time, but at least I understand the marketing reasons behind those decisions..Version: 3.37
Love Audible but there are some snags with the appI have hundreds of Audible books and I am a huge fan. This is my review of the app, however, and it needs some work. There are real issues with the sync feature. It doesn’t sync well with my kindle books; it certainly isn’t seamless and usually ends up just not doing it at all. Not sure the “whisper technology” even truly exists. I often buy the same book in multiple formats and shift between audio and print depending on where I am. The app doesn’t download my new books once purchased at times, but not always. It also doesn’t, and has never removed Kindle Unlimited titles I’ve borrowed and returned. They remain indefinitely, but give an error message if opened. I frequently have to completely delete the app and reinstall it. When I do that, all becomes well in my world and everything is in its place. But I don’t have any other apps that require that. I expect after years of using this app, and generations of updates, that these things would be fixed..Version: 3.29.1
DavidLove the app. , their deals are spectacular, the books are at a proper price, and I think the only thing I really had trouble with was transferring the books to my computer. But; I think they're a little laxed on their security protocols. I had been paying with my credit card. This is also the only thing I was using was said certain credit card. And it just so happens this is the only credit card that somebody was trying to steal. They need to think about accepting PayPal. Or beefing up their security. The main thing they need to do I think it’ll make it so that you can put books in the order that you would actually read what you collect. so many of the title’s i like so many numbers to target which goes in which order.
The iron Druid it self is a wonderful and creative. It makes you think about all of the myths you've heard stories. Not many folks make me smile or laugh. But this is one of the few. Almost, but not quite; a rival to Jim butcher's Dresden files. He brings his characters to life, truly. His explanation of magic is very thought out in that direction best series going..Version: 3.30
Amazing!!!At first I was in a debate on getting the audible monthly subscription but after using audible everyday it’s totally worth it. If you love books or just don’t have the time to read books but want to, then get audible!!! I love reading books but between school and work it’s hard to have the time to sit and read. Since I’ve got audible everyday I listen to it between classes and at work! I love audible, as of right now I’m listening to the Harry Potter series. Everytime I have to pause the book I get upset bc I just want to know what happens next. If you are too sure about the monthly subscription try the free month. If you don’t get done with that book after the first month or you aren’t into it cancel it. But if you get through the first book and you dig it keep it! Yeah it’s $15 a month but that beats paying $30 everytime you want a book! You get a new credit after each month and you get any book you want to listen too for that month. It’s totally worth it so give it a try!.Version: 3.18
Updates added and removed featuresI really like the layout from recent updates and the ability to buy from my wishlist -in fact I like viewing my wishlist on the app better than on the website now. However, I don’t understand why the option to jump back or ahead 30 sec has disappeared from the main screen when playing a book and are only available in the driving and button free options. I use it frequently when trying to quickly find the last spot I remember when falling asleep and quickly tapping the book cover to bring that option up is faster than pulling up either of those options where it still exists.
I’d also like to amplify the request to be able to sort by book category and author. I know I can search by author, but a quick sorting by author would also be nice. I can also type book categories in the search engine and it kind works, but it doesn’t work well. As an example, searching for biography will pull up Harry Potter and A Darker Shade of Magic (also fantasy) so it doesn’t work really well..Version: 3.21
So many choices to entertain, enlighten and enhance your brain power!I have so many titles read, yet an abundance just waiting for me to “crack open” and begin my journey. I usually have two or three titles in progress at a time, so Audible’s ability to remember where I left off, no matter what platform I last used, is an amazingly powerful tool. Almost every print book I purchase, I also get the Audible version, when available (and most are) and I find that I usually end up listening to the book. I love to read, but you just can’t do that while driving, or mowing the lawn, or anything other than sitting and looking at the book. For those who find a title that they need to absorb the content, listening while reading is a great aid for some learners. It really helped many of my students when I was a teacher and I believe that it helps most people to concentrate. For leisurely enjoyment, put in the earbuds and enjoy a great book or two, or three!! You won’t be sorry you at least tried!.Version: 3.43
Would have scored 5 stars, except it’s expensiveI love this app, but hate the price being so high for the monthly subscription. The one credit a month is extremely nice to have included, but not worth the price because most of the audible books, minus the newer and popular titles, are cheaper or free in the kindle Unlimited monthly subscription.
I have to give a score of 10 for the people that read the books. Even my son loves how the readers use different voices for each different character. The readers also do an excellent job setting the tone and mood of the books. I also love how I can do almost anything, working, driving, cleaning, working on puzzles, supervising the kids doing their schoolwork, falling asleep, or drawing while I am listening to books with my wireless earbuds in or connecting my phone to my car stereo or any Bluetooth device with a speaker.
Maybe include the audible subscription in the monthly Kindle Unlimited subscription, the one credit for an audible book a month, and more free classics for $15. Just a thought to get more subscribers..Version: 3.45.1
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
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
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
Life Transforming BookThis book changed my view of myself, the world and my activism.
Recommend for anyone with a body! ❤️.Version: 3.50
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
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
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
The “woke-est” book I’ve ever consumedWill probably need to listen to this book three times over to soak in all the wisdom it has to offer..Version: 3.32.1
Annie Grace This Naked MindThis audio was life changing for me. I highly recommend it !! I have learned so much as far as the unconscious mind and how it controls our emotions and feelings of how we see alcohol in our lives!! By changing your unconscious beliefs it allows you to let go and be free from the “poison”!! Our minds are so powerful!! Changing the way you think about alcohol gives you the power to eliminate alcohol from your life!!.Version: 3.32.1
