The screen is locked in portrait orientation and will not rotate to landscape on my iPad. I use my iPad constantly in landscape, when in my car, in my study, or at my office. Quite bizarre. Audible works great.
Easy to use 4/5
By Every littlebit
Downloaded a James Herriot book Every Living Thing to listen to and found a easy user interface and well working app
Review of Audiobooks 5/5
By Realtor relaxin
Switched from Audible. Better pricing, catalog & app. Listening to Mitch Rapp Service , Survivor
Seems nice 5/5
I love all the books and options. I haven’t had any problems with this app. Keep up the good work.
Been great for a change of pace 5/5
It’s great for long trips or commutes. Play back is better then most music apps when I’m in bad service areas. I recommend it.
Great for long road trips! 5/5
I take long road trips to TX several times per year. This saves me! Very easy to access titles and download. Highly recommend!!
Good app 5/5
This app has an advantage over it's competitor by supporting an Appletv app. The selection and cost of both services are basically the same, but I like to listen using my tv's speakers while at home. I can then pick up where I left off on my phone when away from the house.
One small thing for the developers...
The Appletv doesn't seem to recognize that the app is playing, and goes to sleep after reaching the duration set in sleep mode in setting.
Easy to use 4/5
Convenient and easy to use! Perfect some someone who wants to read more books and has a long commute or drives as a job. Highly recommended. Only critique is a lower selection of book options than some other apps.
Hex hall 4/5
By bookworm 23
I have the ability to use headphones at work so when I have slow days I decided to listen to Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins on my audiobooks app. This is a great app. I love the narration and it’s so convenient when you can’t actually sit down and physically turn pages. I would recommend it to anyone who has a long commute as well.
Great App 5/5
I began reading Flood Girls for my book club & didn't have enough reading time to finish it. I was able to download the app and book with ease in time for the book club. I found very user-friendly.
So far so good withurchases and with the Audio books very happy and like the layout of the way books are done
Great selection, great value 5/5
I opted for Armada by Ernest Cline. Will Wheaton really brings his words to life. Sound quality and the ability to take any book I want with me anywhere I go is a big plus. Also customer support is above and beyond.
Amazing app!! 5/5
I just listened to November 9 by Colleen Hoover and it was amazing. The AudioBooks' app is awesome and it has great features!
Outstanding App 5/5
I’m listening to the Life You Always Wanted for one of my college classes. Audiobook has a great library to choose from and the interface is easy to use.
Like it so far 5/5
I've only listened through one book so far, but the selection seems solid, the interface is easy to use, and I haven't experienced any bugs or anything.
Great app 5/5
By Bhakti Bee
Easy to use! Good collection. Enjoy using it. Doesn’t drain battery too much. Just wish service was a bit cheaper.
Pretty great app 5/5
Does all you need for listening to an audio book on phone
By Tinny G
Has all the books I want and gives great suggestions geared towards what I'm actually interested in. I love that it lets you sample before buying as well.
I read Present Over Perfect by Shana Niequist on the app and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great experience!
Audiobooks is one of the better things to come out of the technology boom. Sometimes I just don't have the time to sit down and read a physical book, but the passion is still there. With this app I can listen to books while exercising, driving, doing chores. Anything really. It's just so exciting!! I can't wait to listen to as many books as I can!
Okay once it gets going 4/5
We downloaded this app right before a 13 hour drive to LA for the holidays. The app was a little temperamental at first but once it got going all worked well.
Where Has AudioBooks Been My Whole Life?! 5/5
As a Network Marketing Professional, I dedicate time EVERYDAY for 'Personal Development'; reading, reflecting on my life, reciting Affirmations...a time devoted Solely to ME! The purpose of this time is to relax, clear my head of ALL negative energy & use resources to GROW; as a Woman, a Mom, a Partner, a Business Owner....Just as it sounds, Personal Growth and Development!! My FAVORITE Personal Development Activity is READING Motivational, Inspirational, Self Help/Growth, Spiritual, Law of Attraction, Industry Specific Resources.....any Reading Materials that will increase my knowledge & help with my Life's Journey!
Before Audio Books, it would take quite a while to actually Finish a book! With my Free Download Credit, I chose 'T for Transformation' By Shaun T!!! I was able to put my headphones in & listen to Shaun T himself read me his book while doing the dishes, writing lists, bathing/my personal hygiene routine & even while rocking my girls to sleep!!! I was able to FINISH a book within 2 days!!! I can go back & re-listen to ANY part of the book I want, WHENEVER I want!! MOST IMPORTANTLY, I can WholeHeartedly Say that I would NOT have gotten the insight, or had the Results I had from 'T for Transformation' from just reading; sure the book is POWERFUL & was written to really make the reader reflect on their life and change their mindset...BUT Reading words in a book does NOT allow the reader to TRULY FEEL how the author felt. Hearing Shaun T's words in HIS voice allowed me to TRUELY FEEL the Raw Emotions he did during his lifetime; to TRULY get the FULL IMPACT he intended when he wrote the book!!
AudioBooks is USER FRIENDLY, has an INCREDIBLE Selection of Titles, is Affordable and is the ONLY WAY I WILL ENJOY BOOKS FROM NOW ON!!!
User Friendly 5/5
This app is wonderful and i am so glad i tried it! Would recommend over audible especially for book selection.
Love audio books! 4/5
By Jen's IPOD
My commute gets long and time and I love listening to audio books while I drive. Audiobooks has a great selection and I’m loving the app!
I downloaded and listened to 'Murder on the Orient Express' It was expertly narrated, maybe the best audiobook reading I have ever listened to, just exemplary. This app is so convenient and I look forward to continuing to use it in the future.
So great for being on the road. 5/5
I work as a delivery driver for Postmates/Grubub, and I’m currently listening to Cujo - it’s fantastic and the reader is brilliant. It’s so nice to have something to do listen to while I’m driving.
Easy to use 5/5
Great app for listening at work or during a drive. Easy to load and use.
Great app with great controls. Easy to use 5/5
By Nick name 45
I have been using this awesome little app to listen to the “total money make over” by Dave Ramsey. My family and I are on track to be debt-free in the next year and using this as a tool with the audio books has been great. Recommended.
So far the app has been great! It gives you a month/one book free and I chose Joe Lycett's buttered parsnips. I think I enjoyed the audiobook better than reading it as it was narrated by the author! Audiobooks has a wonderful and varied selection of books, it was also easy to find what I wanted.
Who Says you can’t? You do 5/5
This book was recommended by answer user and I’ve started it and it has made me think about a lot of things in my like. Once I’m done I will read the actual, but for now it very convenient with two jobs.
Audio Books iOS app 5/5
This App allows for excellent flexibility in listening to books while exercising or driving. Highly recommended. Currently reading The Cuban Affair. Easy download and great listening when traveling in the car!
Good app 4/5
By Allen Merrell
Overall had been a good experience, interface is a little clunky at times but overall would recommend.
Good but pricey 3/5
The books and selection are great! The app itself is very user friendly. However you pay $15 a month for one book. If you want additional books you have to pay an additional $15 without that months period.
So far so good 4/5
I am more of a tangible reader, i like my books, but recently started to listen to music at work, a d got really bored really fast. So i figured i would try this. I like the easiness of the app, playback is good, testing out my first book and we'll see how it goes.
Great Application 5/5
By Noldor Elves
I haven’t had any issues with the app. I’m currently listening to J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion and absolutely love it.
By Ryan Bergergerger
It’s great—all the features you’d want and the app works smoothly.
I’m listening to A Darker Shade of Magic and the narration is excellent.
Enjoying listening to books on my commute to work. :)
Excellent audiobook app 5/5
By Wee Meggie
Great selection of audiobooks, have yet to be disappointed by the selection, have always found what I’m looking for, even very new releases. In one of my favorite book series there was an uproar in the fan community when they used a different narrator for the 13th book, so the author responded by having another edition released by the preferred narrator, and audiobooks.com had the version with the narrator I love!
Audiobooks Review 5/5
By Feldman Law
I think this is an excellent app. It is easy to use anywhere. I highly recommend getting this!
Very convenient 4/5
I like the app, very easy to use and convenient. Great way to access a library of options.
So far so good! 5/5
I listened to A New Model by Ashley Graham and my overall experience with Audiobooks has been good. Haven’t had any problems and the app is easy to use.
Great App 5/5
By Jason Demars
Very user friendly app and great quality audio. Love my books!
Easy use app 4/5
App is great. Super user friendly. Service isn’t what I expect. Wish it let you change the voice or the person who reads it but hey beggars can’t be choosers when your trying to multitask. Wish credit pricing and membership was easier to start using mobile devices.
I’m currently listening to Unraveled by Maggie Sefton from Audio Books. The book is great. When I begin listening, I don't want to stop. Audiobooks make this experience very gratifying. You have an option of choosing the speed you're comfortable. You also have the option of listening to your book in several devices and not lose the place you left off.
I have been going on long business trips for work. This app makes the drives go by quickly (which is exactly what I wanted).
I've been listening to The Stand, which is a great book thus far. The speaker is extremely entertaining to listen to.
My only complaint is the back button. I wish you could go back to the beginning of the chapter easily and I haven't been able to do this. It is set to go forward or back in 30 second increments. I haven't looked up this issue, so it may already be resolved.
Other than that, I love this app!!
I love this app 5/5
By vincent brice
Im was reading chris colfers land of stories series last book worlds collide and both the book and the app was amazing
Love Audiobooks! 5/5
Great app with an easy interface to listen to audiobooks. They have a large selection and make the searching and purchasing process very easy. It’s also a bargain in comparison to audible with per book credits. They also have great deals where you get two books for one. Highly recommend!
So slick!! 5/5
I just joined and downloaded my first book “Call Me By Your Name.” It has been so convenient to just plug in my headphones, close my eyes, and enjoy anywhere, even on the treadmill, which is a place I have struggled to read paper books. I can increase the speed slightly and also start up right where I left off. Really like it!!!
Works Great 5/5
Works great and doesn’t drain my battery like other streaming apps.
