Pros and cons of Audible audio books & podcasts app for iPhone and iPad
Audible audio books & podcasts app good for
Decent selection, I just dont like how you are forced to be subscribed to it as some months I dont listen as much. Really good with getting new release books and classic books.
I really enjoy listening to audible books on long car rides and on my lunch breaks. They have a wide selection of book titles and are really good about giving similar book recommendations. I would just recommend listening to a sample of the book before you buy it to ensure you like the narrator.
Driving an hour and a half each way to and from work, providing traffic cooperates, drives me insane. Boring radio or a used-up playlist wasnt cutting it anymore. Enter Audible. Im enriching my mind while going somewhere. Great app. Couldnt live without it.
Amazon has done it again. Massive gain in this app especially for the busy life
I love having audible so I can listen on long car trips to books I am might not have been able to get around to reading due to my busy schedule!
Listening to Eckhart Tolles "Power of Now" has been a great way to relieve traffic stress while commuting to work!
Some bad moments
Ive read several books on audible and they worked fine. Now my son bought me two books. When I log into audible, my new books are not there and I cant find any way in the app to download the new books. I got emails with links saying "redeem". When I click on that link, I go through a bunch of crappy pages and eventually see a long which says launch app. That doesnt work either. Why cant I just go to this useless app and the purchased books would be there. Or, at least a link that says something like "click here to download purchased books.
Who would make such a useless app? All I want is three functions:
Download those books
Listen to those books
I cant find a way to do any of those. WTH?!?
Not being able to buy audiobooks in an audiobook app is beyond retarded!
Theres a great selection and the app works well. But you have to pay for every book and although you have to buy them and presumably you own them, you cant trade them or lend them as I could if I actually bought the audiobook. Waiting for sales made a lot of that better, but then they did this ridiculous joint marketing thing with Cesar Milan, a phoned dog trainer, whos been sued and investigated multiple times for animal abuse. So thats where I have to cut this relationship short. A better deal is Playster.com. They dont have a lot of new releases, but they have a HUGE catalog and for $9.99 a month you get unlimited access to their ebook AND audiobook collection. Ive only had them for 2 months and Ive read about 12 books total and only spent $9.99 because the first month is free. Its awesome! Get it!
As far as just playing audiobooks this app is fine. But now they are offering all kinds of other content, and the ability to find more audiobooks you might like. It is extremely difficult to navigate between this app and wherever the heck on Amazon you are supposed to be able to find the books that you added to your wish list here. It is extremely frustrating.
Its ridiculous that you cant buy an audio book within the app
Doesnt work and wont play any books now. Pos ap. Spend 20$ on an audio book and none of them work now.
This comment is strictly about audible billing: I signed up for a free trial book via TAL link with free 30 day trial. I ended up preferring paper books. I figured that any respectful business relationship would inform me that they were now charging me $14.95 per month for gold membership. Cut to three months later reviewing my card charges to find 3 months payments. No email notice or invoices. I guess this is what passes for standard business practice today but in my opinion scammy and disrespectful.
