I'm absolutely sold on Audible. I listen to books and content a minimum of 8-10 hours a day. I love this app.
No problems 5/5
App works fine and so do all the functions like skipping forward and rewinding. Always picks up where I left off.
Hooked 🤓💕📚💕 3/5
Audible has great sales. Definitely worth having if you love books, but don't have much time to sit down and read a physical book. I'm just disappointed because it does not have settings to organize the books. It should be able to organize the books by categories; finished, in progress/currently listening, and not read yet. We should also have the option to sort them alphabetically by tittle or author. With the magnitude and the amount of money going into the company (audible/Amazon) one would think that they would have already invested in making this app better.
Fix the bugs!!!! 4/5
Normally love audiobook but I just purchased a book and it will not show up in my books to listen to.
In app purchases? 2/5
By Lonnie Mac 18
Nearly deleted for the sake of not being able to make an in app purchase. Non intuitive to go to the website, purchase the book, then back to the app again to view. Otherwise it's decent.
This app is fun
I love this app. It remembers my place no matter what devise I use. It has tons of options of books to listen too and great deals all the time. I am about to finish all the Sherlock Holmes books with only using one credit! Sometimes it takes some searching to make the $15 credit really stretch but most the time it's at least a few bucks cheaper than out right buying every book you want to listen to. Listening to books while I commute an hour has saved me. And I love the channels too. Even though the syfy stories can be a bit odd it's cool to have an extra perk to the membership.
I love my audible I have spent a lot of money on it. But now since the update I am unable to listen to any of my books. Angry is an understatement for the way I feel! 😡
Love the app! 3/5
By Alpha zeta
Love the app. Lots of options. Great narrator choices. Easy download. But frustrated that it isn't compatible with other apps like Sonos. Also would be nice to be able to combine all our audio books into one app (like iTunes, downloaded audio books, and audible).
Some issues 3/5
The app works fine and the concept is pretty neat (first time user), but it's ridiculous that I can't get a book in the app, and I can't actually see the chapter titles, just the numbers - at least that's the case for Born a Crime. This is all just from a 20 minute experience. I hope it can improved a great deal.
New update doesn't work 1/5
I updated the app this morning and it will no longer allow me to open the app at all. It just sits there in a grayed out state. It will also not let us purchase books from the app on iOS!!!
Just let me get books in the app! 3/5
I don't understand why I can't get books from inside the app instead of having to go to the website and download it to a library and then use the app to only listen to them. Just make it easier so I go pick out a book, download it and listen to it all in one app.
Must have for commuting or long drives. Tip: get the abridged version of 7 habits of highly effective people. The whole book is hard to grasp with audio only.
Can't live without it 5/5
I love that it is available anywhere, has every book I want and that I can speed up the voice cadence to listen in double time.
What Did You Do?? 2/5
This new update is a mess. Logs me out and shows none of my books are downloaded on cloud -- unless I re-download them. Then I have 2 copies. I use this app most and this update is crap.
Best App 5/5
I would die with out this app. So great.
Bad update 3/5
Recent most update lost all of the books I had downloaded, without deleting them from my phone, and I've had to reinstall.
I love audiobooks 5/5
I have been listening to audiobooks for about 10 years. It's one of my favorite things to do when I'm driving or before bed. Anytime I want to relax and go to another place I put my headphones on and shut my eyes.
One of the things I really love about audiobooks is when I find some really talented narrators. They just make the story come to life with there emotions and different voices for the characters. I find my self looking for books read by narrators I love. Just like I look for book of authors I love.
I'm 35 now and I plan on continuing listening for the rest of my life. The collection of audiobooks I have is one of my prized possessions. When I'm older and my eye sight starts going like my grandfathers did I will be listening to audiobooks just like he did. The only difference is I will have my own small library at my fingertips.
Its awesome app 5/5
Its awesome app
Latest update not working 1/5
The lastest update is not working. Please fix. It keeps asking me if i want to go to the app when i am already in the app. And when i get in my book wont download. Please go back to last version. There was nothing wrong with it
Latest version 4/5
I absolutely love Audible, BUT
I updated to the new version on my iPad Air 2, had to log back into the app which took literally forever but finally connected. My audio book recent list is no longer in the proper order. I was unable to play the audiobook I have been listening to, the app just clocked trying to open the book. I deleted the book from my device and downloaded from the cloud and had to start the book from the beginning in order to get it to play. I do hope that adding all of the extras will not impact those of us who use Audible for actual audiobooks. I could care less about the channels, but I listen to my audiobooks daily.
Great app 4/5
I love listening to books as I go through my day.
Stop breaking stuff with updates! 3/5
I love this app, use it more than any other but I've had it lose my place in my books twice after an update. This latest update remembers my spot but won't play downloaded books with a listening history. I had to delete them and redownload them to get them to play.
You are amazing 5/5
I love you
Upgrade is horrible! AGAIN! 1/5
Now I cannot even get the app to stay open let alone now having to download almost all my books.
Please fix ASAP!
Love it. 5/5
Many great titles to choose from.
Can't login 1/5
Downloaded the latest update last night and now I can't login using my longtime audible username therefore preventing me from accessing my library thus making the app useless.
They broke it again. 1/5
Edit 6/21/17: They did it again. Updated the app, forced me to sign back in, and corrupted all my downloads. No other app is as consistently broken.
It was back to working fine. Downloads still sucked but it could have been worse. So it's been made worse. Most egregious step backwards from my perspective is that downloads still fail, but now queued ones won't start downloading and paused downloads won't restart with just a press of the button.
Constant updates aren't needed. Changes and 'improvements' aren't needed. Make it stable, make it work, and leave it alone. Updates are not the same as innovation. New colors are less important than efficiency.
Service is great, APP not so much 2/5
The audible service is great, maybe a little expensive. The app on the other hand is terrible. Downloads of books hangs for no reason, multiple attempts to refresh library before it even sees new purchases.
The channels feature could be so awesome but has a major flaw, if you are listening to a channel and the channel contents gets updated it tends to crash mid stream.
Great App 3/5
By tattooed elf
I love Audible. This app is easy to use. You can move books in and out of your downloads easy. My only beef is you cannot purchase through it.
Works well, great content! 4/5
By WishList Willy
Love audible for all the books but it's frustrating that you can't see your wish list on iOS app!
This latest version makes me sign in but I have to enable cookies for some reason in my phone's web browser. Even when I do it will not allow me to log in.
Super Ap! 5/5
By WNC player
Terrific! Love listening to a good book. Allows you to set a sleep timer to automatically terminate reading so it does read on endlessly if you drift off to sleep at night. Highly recommend.
Love it!!!! 5/5
Audible is fantastic. I never drive anywhere without my audiobooks.
Love this app! 5/5
As a busy mom, student, and property manager, I don't always have two hands to sit down and read. This app brings a lot of happiness to my life :)
5 Stars 5/5
Excellent app - ease of use, look, options, and the full site makes book, author, and subjects easily searchable. This app is a constant companion.
I Wish I'd Tried Audible Years Ago 5/5
Making up for lost time! I'm a big reader who has no time to sit down and read anymore. With Audible, I'm back to reading a couple of books a week. I'm glad I tried it. I'll be an Audible customer forever. The app works great with my phone and Bluetooth headphones. Amazing!
The best part is that I get through even books I would have found tedious if I'd been reading instead of listening. It's great!
The app is great, but 4/5
The app is great, but I would like to be able to access my wish list on the iOS version. Now you have to use a browser to access the site to see it.
Love this app just wish you could buy and download books from the app
Love the app but could use work 4/5
Love the app but wish you could purchase via the app as well. Would save a lot of time.
Having trouble 5/5
Not signing me in
New update ? 4/5
By Chelsey Mae
I love audible.... but I usually speed up the reading slightly because I can't listen to it super slow... and it used to tell me how much time was left in the book when I listen to it at 1.5 (it would be faster than the normal audiobook time) and now it doesn't do that so I don't know how much time I have left in it! Just changed with the update but I hope it goes back to how it was before. I like knowing how much listening time I have left at a quicker speed than normal.
Latest version doesn't work 1/5
I love audible but since I just downloaded the latest update (version 2.24), the app won't open. I've tried deleting it and re-downloading several times. Very annoying as I'm in the middle of an excellent book!
Would give this five stars but.... 4/5
I love this app! I just wish I could buy audio books STRAIGHT from this app. One can only hope these guys are working on that so I can come back here and change my 4 stars to 5!
Love it! 5/5
I've been with Audible for years and have amassed quite a large collection of titles. The app is great and allows me to take my audiobooks with me on the go. If it weren't for audiobooks I probably would never get any reading done haha. ❤️
Worth it! 5/5
While this app is relatively expensive, it is turning out to deliver good value. I enjoy being able to listen to books when I am on a plane, and those I've had so far are very well read. There are plenty of offerings besides books, including some stand-up comedy and TED talks that don't cost anything. You get one book a month with the subscription, and the selection is really excellent. I didn't think I'd use it that much, but it turns out I do. Worth a try at least!
Almost Perfect 4/5
One of my favorite apps. I use it almost everyday. Only drawback is the inability to purchase from within the app.
Awesome app! 5/5
I love listening to audio books, and audible provides good quality books at a price I can afford!
Why can't I gift books from my account??! 2/5
I love listening to this app- I listen to books all the time when I'm working out, cleaning, cooking. I am really frustrated though that they have removed the option to send people books as a gift. I share books if people don't have audible but most is my circle do and it's a great option for birthdays, if I find a book I know someone will love or benefit from. Please bring back the option to give books as gifts! People are much more likely to give single books over memberships.
Great app 5/5
Love this app. I always have a book on my cell to listen to. Easy to download books to cell
