Love it 5/5
I enjoy it
still buggy 2/5
The app forgets the majority of books i've purchased. I have to re-sign in every time in order to make it work.
Won't sync across devices 2/5
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.
We love Audible 5/5
My entire family loves Audible. If you have a "family account" with Amazon, then every member of your household can access any books you'd like. My husband and I both listen to & from work. My daughter loves to have it read to her when her "eyes are tired". We've already decided that we will listen to family-friendly titles (like Harry Potter) on our next family road trip to Orlando. The Audible app works with Apple Carplay or with your Bluetooth car speaker or just through your iPhone. Try it!!
The app will not work unless you are connected to wifi. In the settings menu you can turn this feature on. However, even with it off it still tell you that you are not connected. It won't even let you sign in to the app without being connected to wifi nor will it allow you to see or download your recently purchased books until you're in wifi. I am sitting here unable to sign in and access my books that I purchased. Additionally, you can't do in app purchases. Our have to visit their website, purchase the book, open the app, be connected to wifi, and THEN you can download the book and begin to listen to it. This is ridiculous.
Long time Audible Subscriber 5/5
I didn't give it five stars because there's always room for improvement and I expect there will be. This app is great for me and has met my expectations for navigation and overall functionality.
Outstanding, wonderful, amazing app! 5/5
This app is a life changer, you should get it and tell all of your friends about it.
It's great 5/5
This app is great I love listening to audio books
Works well for long commutes 5/5
By 24 Solo
The app works exactly as one would hope for long commute. It's compatible with the Bluetooth commands with pause, backup, etc. Can't purchase books through it, but it's still nice.

Easy to use and great app
Love audible 5/5
By Lulu lee T
Best app ever. I'm runner and will run for hours listening to a book. And not even realize I clocked 10+miles. Thank you, Audible!! The performers are incredible.
Awesome selection and quality 5/5
By Brian Slash
Books were great and the quality was good
Love it 5/5
My commuting app 5/5
Great app. I listen to my books everyday on the commute to work. Works great underground. Does not require wi-fi once the books is downloaded.
Great app but could use a utility 4/5
By Everyone I mean everyone
The app is great and I love the selection of audiobooks. But I feel the app could use a search option to their online items for purchase directly through the app. Instead I have to go online and purchase then refresh the app and start downloading. It's not a terrible thing so it only detracted slightly from 5 stars.
Love It! 5/5
I've used the Audible App for a few months and have yet to have anything but a successful listen experience. I've shared with family and friends as well, it's very user friendly!!
Love the app. Wish the was an option for viewing books in a series in series order like on the website.
By Flying Banshee
Due to my job and life I don't have time to read books very often. However I do a lot of driving and being able to listen to Audible while on the road has let me finish more books in the past 8 months than I had for 3 years before. Highly recommended!
Great for those that love to read 5/5
Audible is great for those that love to read but are always on the go or not able to sit in one place long enough to read a book
So many problems 1/5
I don't know how this app has such high reviews. Constantly it will just randomly lose its place or go back to when I first started listening.
And whispersync almost never works. Losing my place between Echo, phone and kindle. Guess it was my mistake getting stuck in the broken Amazon ecosystem.
It's good 5/5
It's good and fun.
Works wonderfully 5/5
Of course it would be lovely if the store was enabled from the listening app but it isn't so I'm rating the app based upon its functionality. It is clear, syncs well, is easily operated, and highly convenient. Downloads are fast and simple and I love having my audible books on my iPhone.
I have used the Audible app for years and highly recommend it.
Help me focus 5/5
When I want to relax and let the world go by. Audible and Headphones. One of they best gift given to me since I read a lot. Hard time hold my beloved books now-grandkids want to play on pad/tablet so my phone and Audible are my own
Audible app 5/5
I love audible. I am reading more books than I ever have because I can read while walking the dog riding in the car. My husband loves it too because we listen to books together as we travel by car. It makes the boring stretches go a lot faster. I also love come by name kindle books with audible as it's a great way to use both and learn new words. Thanks for offering audible at a reduced price if you buy the same book in Kindle edition.
Great app!, all updates continue to be 5/5
I am blind and use VoiceOver and the Audible app works great with VO! The ability to increase the playback speed, to use the sleep timer, down load books from my library, are all great features.
By Star Wars is amazing338
This app is wonderful! I will use the sleep timer when I listen to books and am falling asleep so I don't miss any thing!
Love it! 5/5

Hooked on Audible!
Good service - Much improved App 4/5
By Wish it worked.
I'm finding the service to be priced pretty well. I wish they had more of the titles I'm looking for. Even the computer voiced rendering would be better than nothing. Also the app has room for improvement. More options should be adjustable from the settings. Occasionally tracks have been garbled or the sound is too soft. I can't turn up the volume enough to hear over background sounds. I am modifying my review because so many of my suggestions have been implemented. I would like to see the chapter names identified.
It makes reading books much easier 5/5
Audible allows me to listen to a book while also reading it, making it much easier to read and finish books for school.
Love It 4/5
The app works great. Very few issues and I use it all of the time. I've been with audible since their inception. Probably will die still listening to audible. Would be lovely to be able to
Totally addicted" 5/5
I could never find the time to read and didn't quite like it all that much anyway but now I am fully engaged! I love listening to books! Audible has brought me back to literature!!
Great Way to Enjoy a Novel 4/5
Usually, it takes me several months or a year to read a book. Since I signed up for Audible, in December of 2016, I have completed two books (one was voluminous) and have nearly completed a third one. It is an expeditious way to complete a book in a short period of time.
Effective use of time 4/5
I want to read more often than I actually have time. So I read when I can. But when I am stuck in traffic or under a barbell in the gym, I try to learn, think, & reflect with a good podcast or, better an audiobook.
Audible app 5/5
By Harpooned 13
Could possibly be the most important contribution to future generations since the scientific method or our control of fire . Go audible app!!!!
Almost perfect 4/5
One problem. When downloading books to device, if I don't leave the app open, the downloads pause. So, I have to keep my phone screen on wasting battery life. Every other app, like podcast apps download in background while device sleeps.
Audible App 5/5
Love this app! Great for when I'm stuck in traffic, on a road trip, or just want to relax to something different instead of music. I love to read at b d time but having lights on or reading on my cell phone Kindle app makes it difficult to fall asleep. With the Audible app, I can listen in complete darkness and set the timer to stop at the end of the chapter. That way if I do fall asleep I can locate the last thing I remember hearing much faster.
Love that I can mark a book as finished. I was going to say I wish there was a way to sort the read from not read but I just found where to do that!
Perfect investmen 5/5
As a truck driver, this the best way to keep up with books
Underground Railroad 5/5
By Leigh Karen
Interesting historical fiction. Good narrator. Great in car.
Great: newest version works well 5/5
Love Audible, and this most recent version has been working well for me. Good sorting capabilities, explanations for badges, and no crashing. Can't make it through my workout without it.
Favorite App 5/5
I have been listening to audible for several years now and I've always enjoyed the patronage. I have a monthly account and I'm able to use it on several different device and haven't been disappointed.
Adequate app 3/5
You should read the top 3 or 4 criticisms fellow customers have described for the developers. Other than those dysfunctional and FREQUENTLY Irritating deficiencies, app works. #1: u can't PURCHASE books on the app. How much business do you suppose Audible loses due to this. Oh well if they don't care, I don't. If a better app comes along, I'd drop Audible immediately. Developers have to show they listen and CARE.
By Sebastian Medrano
Great app 4/5
Very fast when I purchase a book to when I can download it on this app. My only complaint is it needs 15 second jump forward and back instead of 30 second.
Perfect for on the go moms 5/5
I am a stay-at-home-mom and I can't tell you how this app has enriched my life. I can listen to personal development books while I'm running kids to school, doing laundry, or at the park with kids. So great and I feel it's my key to becoming a better person a little at a time.
I'm hooked! 5/5
Love this app! Only one complaint; the cost is much too high!
Make Your Time Meaningful 5/5
By Bond, K Bond
My commute to work is an hour and fifteen minutes, each way, five days a week. I then spend a good amount of time walking. That three plus hours used to be spent listening to nothing instructive. When I turned off the radio hosts and got audible it opened up a new world. A world of classic books I never would have gotten to. Laughs and tears at books I never would have found. I've grown attached to heroic historical characters and learned problems around the world. My day went from having to spend hours listening to emptiness, to getting to use my imagination and expand my mind. I couldn't be more grateful I turned off the radio hosts and turned on a world of stories and growth.
Great app! Love it
Solid app 4/5
Like the app but wish it listed chapter names and that chapter numbers actually coordinated with book chapters.
Good, but needs some rework 5/5
I love Audible in general, but I've liked previous app versions better. I agree with another reviewer that they made a big mistake changing the button-free setting.
The biggest recent addition I both love and hate is the "clip" feature. I love that I'm able to share clips with other people whether or not they're Audible members. I hate that the clipper settings are not granular enough. It's too difficult to clip exactly the starting and stopping points. Please improve the feature to "zoom in" on sound bites so users can easily make clean cuts that don't include the last or first syllable of the words before and after the clip.
