FINALLY APPLE WATCH SUPPORT!! 5/5
I’ve waited 3 years in eager anticipation for Apple to allow support for audible, thank you amazon for being on top of things and releasing an app within a week of Apple allowing support. You guys are amazing!
Surprisingly fun 5/5
By Jake kenobi
It’s a fun book.
Amazingly beautiful! 5/5
I was funny, inspiring and honest. It was perfect.
New update can’t change chapters 1/5
I run an iPhone 7 Plus. Just updated the app. Tried to scrub to another part of book and/or change chapters, and it just brings me back to start of book.
Timers of chapters gone 1/5
After the latest update (ios12) all the timers of individual chapters are gone. One can no longer see how much is left in a chapter.
I can’t imagine my day to day life without the wonderful voices of Audible in my head.
I am listening to books that I had previously read. Sooooo much better when read by people with English accents.
Forever Audible Listener
Love Audible and glad to see Apple Watch supported now! 4/5
Very thankful for Apple Watch support.
I really enjoy listening to audiobooks in Audible (great phone/iPad interface), love the position syncing and large library.
Feature request: Please make the watch app stand alone so it can download or stream over LTE without needing to do a slow sync from my phone. I often enjoy listening to audiobooks on long walks and it would be great to not need to carry my phone with me especially since phones keep getting so unwieldy large. If Apple stops making small phones I really would like to stop buying phones altogether and only use a smartwatch. This capability is one of the reasons why I grudgingly keep putting up with these huge phones like the iPhone X.
Bug: If the Apple Watch app is installed, the handoff player will be the Audible watch app which normally would allow you to skip forward/back and control volume (as seen in other audio apps like the Overcast podcast app). With this initial version of the Audible watch app, it seems like that handoff control is not implemented. It instead prompts to only play whatever is transferred to the watch instead which is a downgrade over not having the watch app installed at all—in that case the Now Playing app controls the playback smoothly.
I couldn’t stop listening 5/5
By Dylan P Murphy
Very interesting and captivating. I had a long drive and this kept me awake and alert until the last sentence.
Apple Watch implementation details 2/5
By Rev. Paul
Delighted that Apple Watch support has arrived. Implement issues, such as the repeated, “Paired Apple Watch is not responding” message is significantly dampening the experience.
The sync time for a single audiobook at over 90 minutes is pretty bad as well. *Hint my charger is nowhere nearby where I’m using my phone, so it will likely take much longer to do a sync. I suspect that is true for most people.
We need streaming support for both WiFi and Cellular.
By Esme V
Best book I’ve read/listened to. This book has helped me find the tools to turn my life in the right direction. Definitely recommend.
No chapter titles 2/5
By Michael Goerz
I wish Audible showed the proper part/chapter names, instead of just “Chapter 1”.... For non-fiction,it’s basically impossible to find anything, or to get any sense of the structure of the material. Even just allowing to view the TOC from the print version would be a big step forward.
This Life I Live 5/5
While I don’t share the fundamentalist faith of the author, a sincere spirituality runs through this book that can inspire anyone seeking to live a better life. Having the author narrate the book was perfect. His soft voice and earnest manner make every word ring true.
Apple Watch Disaster (so far) 3/5
Great app without Apple Watch. However, if you are going to tease me like my dream came true (supporting Apple Watch) and then I find out that the syncing process is nothing but an unmitigated cluster romp, I am bound to be rather disgruntled. All I really get is lost connection messages, on or off the charger. I reset all the devices no improvement. I hope this issue gets resolved with a quick update.
Love it, but.... 4/5
I would give it 5 stars, if we can purchase books without having to leave the app!! Please, allow us to search on books and see their prices, and be able to buy them from the app itself!!!!
Whoa! Not the best update 3/5
Missing any kind of chapter times. Also the timeline shows the current time at both ends of the timeline. The only place to see where you are time-wise in the audiobook is on the lock screen!! The timeline inside the app does show remaining time of the book (as usual). Hopefully they can get it fixed soon.
Another bugaboo that I experience is that Audible seems to be using their own Bluetooth/audio interface. The Audible app is/has been the only audio app I use that takes either two or three taps on all of my Bluetooth earbuds to resume play from pause. Apple Music, Spotify, Downcast, Stitcher all work great with BT.
Audible app needs some improvement.
So many confirmations 5/5
By WLLY P From The Bronx
Loved every chapter and is life affirming and changing
Heroes of the Reformation 5/5
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I have too admit I thought for sure it would put me too sleep. I actually listened for hours. I was hoping to find other books to catch my taste but did not find much knowledge.or understanding.
Sync to watch 5/5
Apple Watch Sync support... YES! 5/5
I’ve been waiting for Apple Watch sync support since the Apple Watch first came out. As a big runner I love to listen to spy novels on Audible when I run, but always have had to take my phone with me. Not anymore. Thank you Audible for adding this with WatchOS 5. This is so awesome. No more iPhone on my runs. 👍👍👍 Audible rocks and is worth every penny.
By Leyanis M
I’m still a bit uncomfortable with the high prices compared to paperback or kindle editions but so far, is an easy app with thousands of options for everyone.
Version 3.0 is another desaster 1/5
Version 3.0 is yet another screw up by the incompetent programmers at Audible. Absolutely everything having to do with displaying tome read, time remaining, time per chapter, etc is completely messed up. Even the sliding bar above the book display in the playing mode is not only wrong, but drastically useless. Why hasn't Audible found capable beta testers for their app after all the past debacles they've produced and released to the public?
No Chapter times after update 1/5
This is for the lad test update released 9/19/18. Everything was fine before the update. Afterwards, every book is missing the chapter lengths. They all read 00:00, which does me no good as I plan my listening around length. I’ve reset my phone, logged out and back into the app and none of the normal iOS reset tricks worked, so I’m guessing the problem is in the app.
Don’t get me wrong, before the update this was a 5 star app. But without the chapter times I don’t see myself using the app after I finish my current book with an hour left. Don’t get me wrong, Audible and the app are 5 stars, and I will adjust my review once it’s fixed. I’ve emailed tech support and hoping to raise awareness of the issue with a 1 Star review. Once the issue is resolved I’ll change my review to 5 stars.
PLEASE FIX!!!! It’s CONSTANTLY crashing 😫😫😫ughhhh!
apple watch sync doesn’t work 2/5
admittedly trying to sync a 17hr long audiobook, but keeps halting every time around 2-3% complete. I’ve tried it on wifi or without, charging or not.
Concerned Americans 5/5
Awesome book That opens much-needed dialogue about the fabric of this country.
Nice update if it worked! 2/5
I generally love this app. I use it everyday listening to audible books. So when I saw that you could sync a book onto the Apple Watch (3) I was excited! However, after restarting both phone and watch as well as turning airplane mode on and off no luck! You would think that audible would test their app before release... Guess not! (iPhone X and Apple Watch 3)
Time to Hunt 3/5
Entertaining, not great literature but not meant to be. Made the miles slide by which is the reason I listened to it.
Master Chief 5/5
Why no more bookmarks for iTunes? 1/5
The app is, on the whole, wonderful.
I do, however, have a huge beef.
WHY would you remove bookmark functionality for imported iTunes books?
This had been supported for as long so can remember.
This pretty much renders the app useless for iTunes books and I've needed to search for other apps.
Please please bring it back.
Love Audible! 5/5
I would not know what to do with out my books!
Fear by Bob Woodward , listen to a bizarre reality 5/5
The audio book was great to listen to as I wrote postcards encouraging people to vote. Well done.
Great App- Please Siri Shortcuts 5/5
By leeland is the best
For those of us who are riding in a car could you please add a Siri shortcut which will allow us to ask Siri and then the app would play the book?
Girl, Listen to This Book TODAY 5/5
I will listen to this boom as often as possible and I’m sure it will move me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I’ve never laughed and cried and felt someone’s words reach me so simply and so quickly. Thank you. I can now rise up and wash my face 😘
Love it’s 5/5
If I love this app 10x strong before, now with the iwatch apps I adore it’s 100x more.😍😍😍😍
“Purge on the Potomac” 5/5
By Charles B Moody
This book is so exciting, and taking a break from reading this book proved to be pretty difficult at times. I was able to complete this read in a couple of weeks time. My favorite character is Pops Younger (he’s the best)! Pops is the Texas Rangers’ icon. I’ll tell ya I wasn’t able to sit still much while reading this book (it’s that fantastic)! I love everything about “PURGE ON THE POTOMAC,” from the deep state corruption, all the way to the oval office, and Texas has to clean things up (imagine that)! The edgy, and complicated multi generational plot is similar to a roller coaster ride I think (it will definitely get your heart pumping). To this very moment this book has me tickled pink on the inside, and I’m already going back to read it again. I feel JUST like I did when I caught that huge Large-Mouth-Bass the other day. I recommend this book to everyone!!! The audio version is so worth it, and narrated perfectly. David Thomas Roberts, you’re now my favorite Author of all m-time (hands down). Thank you so much David,
Charles B Moody.
Love this book!! 5/5
By Jeff Kovic
I drive alot for work and listening to this book makes me realize where my lifestyle is currently at and where my financial status is. I highly recommend this book for the greater advice and future you wish to have. Time to start making personal changes!!
The world lost a Legend when Bernie went home! 5/5
I laughed, cried, laughed some more & will forever miss Bernie Mac!!!
Life changing! 5/5
The second book I have ever listened to on audio. I’m hooked. I feel like Rachel is my friend. A friend who can accept all of me to the core of who I am. Girl, Wash Your Face was SO needed for my heart to hear, my mind to absorb and my intellect to be challenged. Thank you!!
Great story 4/5
By Doesn't Work McGee
Overall good book. It got kind of long.
Great but could be so much better 2/5
Audible is great. I have hundreds of books. But the app is not designed well. Series should be grouped and the user should be able to create other groups.
Don’t understand why the won’t improve the basic app. They keep adding stuff, but refuse to improve the basics of listening to audiobooks.
Girl, Wash your face! 5/5
First audible book for me and I sure did enjoy it! Thank you! 👍🏼
Thank you Audibles! 5/5
I can not say how much I have enjoyed Audibles! I found that when I drove to meetings, I would become sleepy listening for music, but listening to books had me concentrate more and I didn’t get tired. Thank you, Audibles!
A must for anyone 5/5
Most of us underestimate the power of proper communication especially when you’re busy and overwhelmed with information and tasks to do. This book is a wonderful way to explore the possibilities of open communication at home, work, and school. A definitely helpful approach to everyday communication.
Books are great, contract not so much 2/5
Had it for a year in a half, every time I thought I didn’t need so many credits accruing (busy time, not enough boom reading) I was told it is very difficult to stop and keep the books I’ve bought. That’s a vicious cycle if you thought you were buying audio books and then it turns out you’re renting them as long you pay the monthly fee. Last guy told me that’s not true and I wouldn’t lose them. Either policy change or sneaky customer service but I didnt get what I thought I was signing up for. Hope that guy is right...
Good but needs direct purchase 4/5
By L RUN 8
The interface could be improved with direct purchase.
The Great Alone 5/5
This writer is wonderful in the expression of the characters, surroundings and emotion.
I could close my eyes and be there. Great storyline. This will be a re-read it is that enjoyable.
Best app ever 5/5
Audible has made it easier to find the time to read/listen to the books I’ve been saying I wanted to try out. It’s seriously amazing! The best investment I’ve made by far. I say invest in this app to treat yo self!
I enjoyed this book a great deal. It had a bit of mystery, love and friendship all packaged in the mind of a likable character.
The best! 5/5
I am so thankful for my audible app and the audio books on it. When traveling, walking, jogging, falling asleep, learning something while folding laundry, audible makes it possible.
