My New Entertaiment 5/5
By ❤️Rev D
Listening to stories read to me by my mother, kindergarten teacher and librarians, during story time, remains a highlight of my childhood. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed hearing the words and at the same moments “seeing” and feeling what I heard. Although I love to read and holding an actual book is still my preference, listening offers me a new experience that can continue while driving, doing chores, exercising, relaxing at the beach, etc. Audible Books are my new go-to for personal entertainment.

After a long time hearing about Audible I decided to download the app and sign up. My biggest disappointment with it is that even though you are able to browse for books and add them to your wish list, you can only then access the wishlist in the web browser( not the app). You are also not able to purchase books from the app either which is just plain stupid. So basically you have to go to the amazon app and buy books, access your wish list from the web browser website and then listen though this app.
Inefficient. Plain and simple.
The audible functions are good, however, the first book I picked out made references to images and there is no way to click on anything to see the images. I know this is just to listen but if the images are critical to the material you are listening to, then there should be a tab for that in the app.
Much work to be done with this app for sure.
Excellent Book 5/5
I Loved it!!!! Done in one day couldn’t stop listening .❤️
Only complaint: 3/5
I would have to say that although I enjoy my audible app- I would enjoy it more if I could buy the books right from my app. I find it annoying to need to log into my amazon account- in a web browser- to get my audible books. You also can’t buy audible books in the amazon app either.
Brings my over all opinion down 2 stars because of this inconvenience.
Sleep Timer 4/5
I love Audible, but the last update limits the sleep timer, which I use constantly. It works once, but to use it again in another title you need to restart the app, Ad infinitum. Please fix ASAP!
top app 5/5
what would we do without audiobooks?
Great :) 3/5
I removed two stars because I cannot access my wish list from the app and because I can’t purchase through the app. Other than that I am pleased.
Outstanding Narration! 5/5
By Ben Lewellen from Montana
Well done! Compliments to all that had a part in bringing this book to life.
Great for those with a commute 5/5
I love listening to audible while driving. I also love that it is so easy to cancel and sign back up. I have signed up and cancelled multiple times because I sometimes take a long time to complete a book, or I don’t feel like listening for a while. Being able to cancel ensures I don’t get charged unexpectedly. You can keep up to 3 credits on an active account but some months I don’t feel like being charged.
One Rough Man 1/5
Good, action-packed story, which, unfortunately is significantly diluted with the unceasingly amateurish narration that reeked of comic book incredulity resulting in a B-rated children’s book at best.
Writing was subpar - too many overly descriptive asides akin to the POW, ZAP, and WHAMS akin to the onomatopoeia call outs of the Batman cartoons. Breaking character regularly is an ongoing problem. Adults don’t talk in a 4-year old voice. Not ready for prime time. Overall grade: D+.
It’s not supposed to be this way 5/5
This book was made for me and if anyone else feels the same, then I’m sorry that life has kicked you badly too.
32 years of a happy marriage and then my husbands family decided they wanted me out so they could get the inheritance, now that he’s mentally not able to make decisions for himself.
God knows I was never going to divorce him and would have stayed by his side until the end.
With this book I believe God is by my side even though I’ve been suffering for more than 6 months.
Awesome books by awesome authors.
Crashes a lot 3/5
Don’t know why but it crashes when a timer is set.
Doesn’t load on iPhone 6s 1/5
Pointless. Also requests access to unrelated content. Why does it need itunes etc if it’s supposed to give me access to audible content not iTunes content.
Best Investment On The Planet! 5/5
What better investment is there in life than knowledge? Audible has enabled me to find books filled with knowledge I wouldn’t trade for billions of dollars. The answer to every question in life has already been written in a book. The only effort required is finding the correct book. There is no price that can be put on this subscription. I love to listen to the audiobook in the mornings and then read the paperback later in the day! I get so much more out of it. I would continue writing had I not learned the value of simplicity, which also came from books. Make the choice to improve your life today. ❤️
Percy Jackson’s The Last Olympian 5/5
Audiobooks saved us on an unexpected 10-hour drive home!!
The hidden history of the jfk assassination 5/5
By gerri ko
By TX Mops
Any baseball fan will enjoy this short story. The reader executed the comedic flare of the text perfectly.
Love It! 5/5
By Mountain Gal
Audible is one of my favorite apps on the iPad. It is especially useful on an airplane, where you can put on the headphones to block out the noise and listen to a favorite book or meditation series. It is also very nice to sync back and forth between Kindle and Audible without having to fine your place watch time.
The Obstacle is the Way 5/5
This is such a phenomenal book. It helps us to understand that we are not the only ones dealing with challenges, struggles and obstacles and that the strong and the smart use the obstacle as an opportunity. Brilliant!! You’re amazing, Ryan Holliday!!
Worth the money I love it so much
An Incredible Coincidence: the disappearance of poison and polio 5/5
Forrest Maready brings to light incredible historical details annihilating the current belief system regarding the eradication of polio. Knowing and comprehending the limitations of man throughout history should make society ashamed that we continue to praise actions that have inevitably caused harm. We have the gift of hindsight but continue to refuse to use it and instead glorify the unutterable failings of Man. For me, his writings also highlight the uncomfortable fact that we continue to poison our children at the behest of outlandish, unfounded, unscientific industry claims.
Love Audible so much! 5/5
It is so nice to get some reading in while you are driving, doing chores, or closing your eyes for a bit. Audible has really nice book choices and I recommend it to anyone who is always rushing around and doesn’t have as much time to sit down and read.
Nunca pense que me fuera a gustar un audiolibro. Soy de las personas que le gusta pasar las hojas del lubro pero...sorpresa me atrepo. Me hizo retomar el sabor a los libros
NOT WORKING WITH iPhone 8 Plus OS 12.3.2. Hasn’t worked since 7/4/2019. 1/5
NOT WORKING WITH iPhone 8 Plus with OS 12.3.2. Hasn’t worked since 7/4/2019. Plan on updating this anytime?
Audible is Great for the Classroom! 5/5
My students love listening to books on Audible! I love it to listen to it while I’m driving.
I HIGHLY recommend Audible!
Servant Leadership 5/5
Great audio book 5/5
This was my first audio book! So good!
Great app 5/5
I had a book club meeting coming up and couldn’t get the book at a library in our town and couldn’t get the book ordered and delivered in time. Within minutes of buying the audio version I was having the book read to me. Excellent service.
Can’t even open app now 1/5
Updated the app, was working before but now it won’t open at all, it just crashes immediately when I try to open it. Rebooted my phone, no help. Can’t use this app now, so can’t listen to book in the car..
Time for update Audible!! 3/5
Perhaps I’m part of the problem with culture in expecting things to be immediate and convenient. In saying this however, most things are today and it’s what keeps us loyal customers.
WHY can’t we simply purchase books from the app? That second step of going to the website is frustrating Every. Single. Time. Please Audible, step it up.
My favorite and most used app 5/5
By My Lilyia
I think if I didn't have audiobooks, I would melt into a big stress puddle on the floor! I love the bookmark function, the sleep timer and night mode. I don't have a hard time using these features as previous reviewers did. This is for sure my favorite and most used app!
However, the app frequently crashes in the middle of my books. Please fix this.
Love audible but... 3/5
I love audible as I listen everyday! Just wish the app worked the same on iPhone as it does on the androids, with my iPhone in the app I can’t buy books, I can’t see my wish list, which stinks when your not home or able to log in to the online site and buy a book and then download to your phone! But on the android phones you can see your wish list, buy books down load automatically, just wish the app was the same across all devices!
I love my audio books ! 5/5
Best audio book. If you don’t like it just returned no questions ask?
Unfreedom of the Press 5/5
So much scholarship and research went into this book. Thank you Mark Levin for putting the long hours in on this one to share the facts for we who are not in full time politics! You are giving us the facts and warnings of what is truly going on in this country and how the leftists are trying to take away our American way of life. Thanks for loving freedom and America so much that you are willing to get attacked by the left wing media for us!
A look at how life is so different for many. 5/5
I enjoy statistical analyses tied into a story. Evicted was great in that it provided that and a look into the lives of those who struggle on a day to day basis dealing with housing needs and how some managed to handle it while others had many roadblocks. It was well worth the time to hear this story. We must continue to think of the least of us.
Good app 4/5
I like the app, but I feel like searching and purchasing audiobooks from the app should be an option. Thanks
App Lacking 2/5
The inability to make audible purchases from my phone app is a very inconvenient shortcoming, and doesn’t make sense when I can buy a physical copy on my amazon app.
Buying books... 4/5
Love the app, but wish I could purchase books in the app. Come on Jeff, fix this!
God, Greed and the (Prosperity) Gospel 5/5
Engaging and devastating to the prosperity gospel
14.95 not worth what I listen 2/5
I cannot use my credits at my current listening time
Churchill 3 months but have had similar experiences with shorter books
Is there a alternative to this subscription
Great app! 5/5
I live being able to listen to a book 2 or 3 times in the time it would take me to read it once!
It’s ok 4/5
By cookie chop
I love how you have more options but it’s a lot of money and I understand that you need to make money but could you make less expensive books
Semi-Functional, but Frustrating. 3/5
By Uncut Jules
How was it this audiobook app doesn’t allow you to purchase any audiobooks?! It’s an incredible incongruous experience and frustrating as heck to set up. Once books are on the app, playback is straightforward and works well.
Best way to catch up on “reading” 5/5
I love Audible! Is the best way to listen to books while being productive around the house or while driving. I recommend it to anyone who thinks they are too busy to read. Download a book, put some headphones on, and enjoy!
Where the Crawdads Sing 5/5
A FaBuLoUs story. Twists and turns on every page that allowed this amazing story evolve. The writing was so wonderful!
Darker than Night 4/5
By SITE Sleuths
The last chapter was pointless and irrelevant. Just a thrown in political jab.
Great app! 5/5
Found the book I wanted quickly and was able to listen to!
