Love Audible 5/5
By Ryan Burton
Love you Audible. I run daily. My app and books keep me company. Love this app.
Great App 4/5
I love the app! It works phenomenally for me 100% of the time. The reason for the 4 star is because I would love to be able to control my listening on my Apple Watch! If that became a reality then it would be an easy 5 star
I enjoy Audible a lot.
App is straightforward, easy to use, makes listening a cinch.
Spare Time 5/5
My spare time is filled with listening to books and learning again, as opposed to before when I would mindlessly look at FB and the Gram.
By Thomas O. Dalton
Wish you could search better and purchase books in app
Great app 5/5
This app is awesome. I have the Bible on here so I can meditate on the Word anytime
Crash city 1/5
I am about to REdownload for the third time. If you try to delete a book to save space, the entire app crashes. It is SO SO SO frustrating. Gggggrrrrrrrr.
Why hasn't this been fixed yet with all the complaints about this problem--not very responsive to your customers, huh???
UPDATE: the above was written 6 years ago and I just came on to write another review complaining about glitches, SLOW loading, crashes and more and ran across my review from six years ago where I was having the same issues. You're kidding Audible........? Why aren't you fixing/improving this app? (btw. This is a complaint about the APP ONLY. Apart from the irritating app, I otherwise love audible)
Loving it 5/5
This app is allowing me to "read" books that I otherwise would not have time to. It makes my morning commute far more enjoyable than just listening to the radio.
App is awesome, has improved massively 5/5
I left a review 5 years ago that was 1-star. The app was buggy and had lots of usability issues.
These have been fixed. I love this app now!
Life changing app! 5/5
By Rahul Bhattacharya
Get an earphone and you're set for life!
If you use a smart phone and love books, you need to try audible.
Even if you don't read or think you won't get into narrations; at least try the free trial, you might might be pleasantly surprised.
I enjoy listening to books.
Home in Mitford 5/5
Jan Karon absolutely captures the wonderful Appalachian culture and "Father Tim" is a man for all seasons surrounded by unforgettable characters. We "go to Mitford" as often as possible!
The best app I have installed. 5/5
By That guy who likes books.
If you do not have this app then you should get it as soon as possible.
Perfect App. 5/5
I don't leave my one hour work ride without it!
Free offer 5/5
I came here for a free offer. Oh and I love it :D
No wifi, no book. 2/5
Are we ever going to be able to listen to our books WITHOUT being connected to wifi? Why am I paying for something I can only use with internet. What am I downloading to my phone if it's not even the book?
They do not want you listening to your own books… 1/5
The supposed ability to listen to your own books is a cynical marketing tactic. Imported books from your iTunes library do not play properly. They skip, you pause them and hit play again and it's 20 minutes behind where you were. The chapters do not work. Speeding up the books causes terrible distortions. What they really want you to do is give up and purchase their books that do work instead.
Why is there no 1.1x 2/5
By Jdm dingo
1.1x speed has been standard on android for years, why is the next fastest from 1.0x on apple, 1.25x? 1.1x you can't hear the difference but it will knock off hours of a long book, 1.25x is unlistenable! It skips too much and sounds horrid.
Great update, still can't buy books through app. 4/5
This app is easy for listening to books!! I love how it keeps you hooked to keep reading (listening) with badges and the stats!! Keep up the great work! Works wonders for me while doing homework, chores, etc!
Uhhh, I hate the white screen interface.... Change it back to black/grey... And bring back the sleep timer to the front... It loses two stars from previous rating of 5 stars....
Great update! Would be better if I could purchase books through the app. 4/5 stars
Well done stable app! 5/5
By Dr Sasha
Listened to hundreds of hours of books in Audible - smooth experience!
Speed adjustment is very handy.
Partial download is making so much sense.
Thanks for the great app!
Bugs and bad user experience 1/5
Always having issue logging in, downloading etc, and not possible to purchase a book in the app make it very hard to use the app
Works and gets out of the way 5/5
Works very well. Does what it's supposed to with no nonsense. 30 second rewind is great for distraction types like me.
Future option? 3/5
I wish it was able to create order of audiobooks in the order you want. Like a Playlist. That would be so amazing!!
Channels still a mess and buggy 1/5
Yet again it seems more channels I enjoy bite the dust without warning. Also the ones that are new and updated 25% of the time you get a download error and can't even listen to it. Same problem for months now and each update never fixes it.
Love audible 5/5
This service is great and gives me a great alternative to listening to music at work (data entry). We have also used it on road trips and I love it! I've had months that bills were tight and I love that they can pause your account for a set period when life happens. :) A++
Audible is great and convenient 5/5
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.
I've 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 can't 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 doesn't work either. Why can't 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 can't find a way to do any of those. WTH?!?
Not being able to buy audiobooks in an audiobook app is beyond retarded!
Very worthwhile 4/5
By Big U 4 Life
Decent selection, I just don't like how you are forced to be subscribed to it as some months I don't listen as much. Really good with getting new release books and classic books.
Best app ever 5/5
By A Discerning music lover
Great deals on books!
Makes my commute more than tolerable 5/5
By Don't cook, don't care
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 wasn't cutting it anymore. Enter Audible. I'm enriching my mind while going somewhere. Great app. Couldn't live without it.
It's awesome!! One of the best apps I have
Why are we limited to 7 speed settings 3/5
This app is great but when attempting to adjust the speed of the reader you don't have much control. It starts of with .75x and goes up by .25x until you reach 1.5x then it starts to go up by .5x until you reach 3x. If anything you need finer tuning ability when the voice is going faster.
If I could suggest one thing it would be the ability to have a slider so the listener can adjust the speed of the reader's voice to the exact speed they enjoy(allowing more control and finer tuning of the speed of the voice).
Love it! 5/5
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!
Incredible Value 5/5
Amazon has done it again. Massive gain in this app especially for the busy life
Excellent... and 7734, its free! 5/5
By Phil Boyd Studge
Does the job 4/5
I have several devices and love being able to listen across all the devices without losing my spot. I keep several books downloaded at any given time bc the download process can sometimes be a bit lengthy.
Please let me view my wish list 5/5
Please don't push me to open the website if I can do many things through the app.
Not user-friendly 2/5
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.
Commuting in LA has never been more peaceful! 5/5
Listening to Eckhart Tolle's "Power of Now" has been a great way to relieve traffic stress while commuting to work!
By Rusty trap
There's 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 can't 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, who's been sued and investigated multiple times for animal abuse. So that's where I have to cut this relationship short. A better deal is Playster.com. They don't 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. I've only had them for 2 months and I've read about 12 books total and only spent $9.99 because the first month is free. It's awesome! Get it!
Mostly great, but... 3/5
Why on earth can't you make a purchase in app??? Major, major flaw for such a large company
Never a single issue. Works flawlessly. The new sleep function is excellent too. You have to love Audible.
Will not work 1/5
Doesn't work and won't play any books now. Pos ap. Spend 20$ on an audio book and none of them work now.
High-quality app, Phenomenal Service 5/5
By Kristina mnva
Please make the wish list available on app. Keep up the great work!!
Decent app but... 2/5
By Col. Struckinstimer
It's ridiculous that you can't buy an audio book within the app
Almost great! 3/5
By Dr Purple
A table of contents with link to location, a linked index by keyword and links to goodreads reviews are all that remain missing. Audible is an excellent app, but Hoopla is better!
Love it 5/5
Cancelling my subscription 1/5
I've long been an Audible subscriber and have loved the selection of Audiobooks but their recent decision to partner with snake oil salesman Cesar Milan has me canceling my subscription and heading to the library.
I've always relied on Audible for high-quality content but choosing Milan, who uses training techniques which are almost universally condemned by the professional animal behavior and training community is short-sited at best and dangerous to the dogs and people who love them at worst.
