Works great 5/5
I always blow through my podcasts too quickly on my insane commute. Ten dollars for fifteen hours of great content? Awesome
A+ app 5/5
Great app, love the sleep timer
Love Audible 5/5
By Ann from Philly now in MI
Use Audible to load audio books on my phone for frequent travel during long flights and car drives. I love the great deals on Deal of the Day books - usually something I might not find on my own.
Must have app. 5/5
It's great. Great app, the best. It's huge.
Version 2.2 is super buggy 2/5
I listen to audible audiobooks nearly every day and exclusively use the app on my phone. Since the most recent update, I've had to call customer support twice for help downloading a book. The books would just say "pending" without actually downloading. I've even had trouble deleting a book I finished. I keep having to sign out and sign back in to get the library to refresh instead of being able to use the refresh button. Whenever I open the app, I have to wait 30 seconds or more to actually play anything because the app seems to need that long to refresh itself. It shows a spinning wheel and is non-responsive. Sometimes it takes several minutes to become available. Please fix your app, Audible!!
One of my favorite apps 5/5
The best companion for long drives.
A SAHM's best friend 5/5
Love the app- never had any problems with it. With 2 littles at home there's no chance of sitting down to read a book. Audio books are the perfect solution for a book-loving mom of little ones!
Wisconsin reviewer 5/5
Love love love this app. My absolute favorite.
Resets "finished" books ... still. 3/5
To be absolutely, 100% clear: I love love love Audible. But, for crying out loud, what is the deal with this app? Having finished a bunch of titles (and having them marked "finished" in your library), you can be sure that at some point – without fail – your titles will all reset to appear "unread." It is a sorting nightmare, especially when you own a whole lot of titles. This problem is either being entirely ignored by the developers, or has simply confounded them for nearly three years to the point that it seems they are just incapable of fixing it. It really has gotten quite irritating, and I have finally resorted to just keeping a list of titles written out on a legal pad, and checking them off by hand once I have finished them because this recurring bug just will not seem to stay squashed. So dumb.
Never liked audio books before 4/5
Audible makes it easy.
By Proud Virginian
Audible is the only way I can plow through all those books I've always wanted to read.
Does everything I need it to! (And ALMOST everything I want!) 5/5
If 4.5 was an option, I'd give that, because as other reviewers have mentioned, it's dumb that I can't buy books from the app. I also wish there was a playback speed in between 1.0 and 1.25. Like 1.1. I very rarely use that feature, but just recently listened to a book where the narrator read so slowly, I would have died if I couldn't play it faster.
As far as listening, it's great. I like the 30 second playback and bookmarks. I like that you can now "mark as finished" when you've finished a part. That's helpful for long books broken into 5 or 6 parts.
And I like the sleep timer function. Good for listening before bed or keeping yourself from being late for things because you've lost yourself in a book!
Love this app.
Great app. Great service. 5/5
By Rocket Sauce 68
I love audible. The price may seem high, but it's half of one decent audiobook. I've tried several free services but the limited selection and poor quality just lead to frustration. Audible is the only way to go.
Doesn't work in my car 5/5
By Cheryl's iPhone 6 Plus
I love the app, but I wish I could listed to it while driving, hyundai 2015. I don't want to buy any special connections. Please add my vehicle's audio system to a future update.
Best way to "read" books 5/5
Great narrators. High quality sound. I started using Audible when commuting several hours a day. Great for airplanes!! Now use it all the time. Love it!!
Very useful 5/5
Many useful features and a wide variety of great audiobooks to choose from.
Love Audible! 5/5
This is one of my favorite apps - easy & user-friendly. I can now "read" all the places and times I couldn't before: driving, cleaning, walking, at the gym. It has changed my life - books make my life so much more fun.
Audible Is Awesome 5/5
By Frankie Metalz
Always stressed over not having the time to sit and read more often, audible helped me go through books a lot faster and still experience the story in a different way. I definitely recommend that people try audible for themselves.
OK but not great 3/5
I like that I can listen to a book as soon as I purchase it without needing to sync it through iTunes but my liking the Audible app ends there. If are using headphones to listen and you miss the last few words, you cannot simply hold down the rewind button to go back a few seconds in time. You either need to take out the phone/iPad to do it or you have to go back to the beginning of the chapter. If you're walking with your device in your backpack, it is a pain to have to stop to do this. Traffic noises like honking horns or sirens often interfere with the ability to hear to books. Also, at times I'll try to pick up listening from the point at which I left off but I get taken back a few chapters to what I've already heard. I usually just download and sync and then use iBooks. I don't have problems when I do that.
Great app. Thanks Audible.
does what it should 5/5
I listen to books in the car. this performs exactly as it should. when I want to hear the same book streaming on my computer it syncs to the point I last listened. I'm pleased.
Excellent App. Brilliant Content. 5/5
Gets you through the day. And any night.
Love Audible 5/5
I love audible because it allows me to listen to my books while driving long-distance. I also use the app when I work out and while I'm doing homework.
Great app 5/5
By Garrett Roseborough
Probably my most used app. Thanks for making all of this content available. Very few times have I wanted to listen to a book and not been able to find it on audible.
Free book 5/5
They gave me a free book for their promotion. And I can cancel my subscription afterwards!
Mostly great 5/5
By beste Pferd im stall
Audible overall is one of the great companies
I've listened to over one hundred titles in ten years.
The app needs sleep function to be on first page
so it is very accessible. I rarely use speed change and suspect there are few who do.Very dim screen for night would be a plus.
Book marking needs to be clearer with means of jumping back to where sleep timer was first set so hunting for place would be quicker.
Best way to listen to your favorite books on iPhone.
My most used app ever!!! 5/5
I use Audible everyday multiple times, while driving or getting things done around the house. When it's time to go to bed I use the the sleep timer, easy and intuitive. Although the library is ever expanding there are some very popular books that haven't made it to the app at the time of this review.
Wonderful app 5/5
Works as one would expect and hope--very intuitive and minimalist design and function for an app. Perfect for listening!
I love this app! 5/5
I'm not sure I would learn and read as much if not for this app. I love it!
of mice and books 5/5
By C Semler
keep up the great work, best book club i've been of.
to the moon and beyond we go
Great App 5/5
Audible App horrible on IPhones 1/5
I am usually very frustrated trying to log into Audible, access my library and upload new books that I should have access to from my iPhone. I usually log into Audible with my old android phone to get the new books into my library and then I can finally access them with the Audible app on the iPhone this is very disappointing and frustrating and a waste of time.
Won't sync across devices 1/5
This is total junk. My total listen time across devices is at over 600 hours, so I'm clearly a fan of the service. But my position absolutely will not sync between my iPhone and my iPad. I've even tried going to the app settings and manually clicking the "sync positions" option to force the device to sync. Regardless of what I try, the progress I make on my iPhone will not appear on my iPad.
Everything you need in an audiobook app 5/5
You can buy books and listen to them. The sleep timer is a bonus.
Although I love audible, the background app refresh on the app caused my phone to heat up and drained battery life significantly. Monitored it through iOS and notice it was constantly running. Turned the background app refresh off and the problem was fixed.
SUPER ADDICTING, LIKE LITERALLY! 5/5
What I love about audible is when you don't wanna read any book but you NEED to (we all have those moments) AUDIBLE is there! It's just so relaxing, and the options are infinite! Definitely recommend it to everyone!
Makes audiobooks simple! 5/5
I love the audible app. I used to have to download the titles on iTunes and then sync my device, but no more! It's so simple to manage my titles right on my phone--love it!
Works great 5/5
Works as expected
One my my most favorite apps and one of my most used.
Very good app! 4/5
By Satisfied Customer #1billion
Very soothing app I listen to it every night my favorite book is hoot by Carl Hiession if you want to check it out
Love having access to my books everywhere. Haven't had any issues with this app at all!! Wish you could also buy books from the app itself.
As requested 5/5
Writing this because the app keeps requesting me to review it! 😕 Does the job fine, and I find the controls convenient to use. Now is the app would just quit asking me for a review ...
Great app that has changed my life for better 5/5
By Jalonas read a lot
I listen to Audible on the go and at work and it keeps me going. There are great deals all the time! Anyone who wants to experience stories but doesn't have time to sit down and grab a book needs this app.
Great way to get information 5/5
I use it on roadtrips and at the gym as well as when i am cleaning house.
Best app ever 5/5
By Laguna ca
This app is magnificent. I use it every time I am in the car. It makes the miles flow by quickly. Plus due to the variety of books available I will never be bored.
Best Audio Book App 5/5
Hands down the best Audio book app, well worth any money you spend. The monthly subscription pays for itself immediately with the Ebooks
Audible is great, few things I don't like 4/5
I've used audible for years now. I think it's a great service and a great app. I love the selection of books and their 15/month for 1 credit plan is cool when I'm listening to at least a book a month.
The bad part about the plan is that some month I don't use audiobooks, or sometimes I just read for months and forget audiobooks. I go through phases. And the sucky part is that the credits start adding up. It would be good to have a service that aims for people who read less books or to pause the service as long as you want. They allow a 90 day pause once a year which is better than nothing but it could still be aimed towards people who use less credits. And it's not only about using less credits, if you pay $15/mo then you better buy a book at least $15+ so sometimes I buy a $7 book with my money instead of using a credit.
The only bad thing about the app is you can't purchase books within it. Not a huge inconvenience but I dont know why it's not an option.
Overall I'm gonna keep the service for now, unless I find an alternative that's cheaper.
I know public libraries now have audiobooks but I haven't explored that yet when it comes to a variety of books and if they have new books. If that works out then maybe I'll give that a shot.
