Need to know the price before I listen 1/5
By Lovin Readin
I never never buy without knowing the price first. Just like a cover, I also see if I can afford the book. I can’t find the price and therefore, won’t listen to anything. I’m a devoted book owner since the very first one -I’ve owned 6 different versions of said product but if you don’t please the customers(I’ve read the simple requests in your reviews), you are pushing yourself right out of business. Such a shame for such a wonderful bookstore!
The app is fine if all you want to ever do is press play and listen and then press stop. I’d like to be able to leave a bookmark where I left off (in case I fall asleep while listening), set a sleep timer, and see how far along in the book I am. Currently the app only gives you how far along in the chapter you are. None of these requests are outlandish - audible makes it happen, and I’m really regretting spending $45 on two audiobooks from Nook Audio. I actually might end up buying them a second time on audible so I don’t spend 35 hours of my life annoyed at this app. Nook, you can do better! This app is equivalent to a VCR in the generation of Netflix.
Need in app purchasing. 3/5
Like the app, but nook needs to realize, people want convenience. If Candy Crush can do it, so could nook. Get your programmers to figure out how to add, in app purchasing.
Love the Nook Audio platform 5/5
I love the B&N audio book selections. I’ve always found a great selection of my favorite authors. I refuse to use an Amazon platform (anything really) as they are awful to deal with. Thank you B&N for a great experience.
Works great 5/5
The new app update works great and it’s very easy to use. I would only suggest making the controls bigger for easier in-car operation.
I have no idea if the app is any good because I can’t purchase books using the gift cards I have! That makes the app worthless to me.
The app does not work with my a count at all it sead my a count is blocked
Worst App Ever 1/5
This is just about the worst app I’ve ever used. There is no way to bookmark your book! There is no timer to turn off the book, the app wasn’t letting my phone’s timer turn off the book either. The book isn't organized by chapter number but by tracks, so you have to guess out of 80 tracks where you left off. The reading speeds don’t include a 75% speed that slows down the speech but doesn’t distort the audio. It doesn’t suggest books in the same genre or even by the same author! You can’t buy books within the app! The last book in the series I’m reading is $50!!! But I have to get out of bed and turn on my laptop to give you my money, NO THANKS! I don’t know that B&N is spending their money on but it certainly isn’t on programming or sales capture. Barnes & Nobel, Hire me and I’ll fix your audiobook division.
Ackward App 1/5
I had to dig to find out how to purchase audible books for the app. Nowhere did the app even identify itself as Nook or Barnes & Noble product. Still not sure how it works and I’m really not willing to invest energy in the “trial an error” method of discovery.
Needs In-App purchase 3/5
As the title suggests, this app would be amazing if it would only include an option to purchase while in the app. Please B&N take my money!
Good, but a Few Improvments 3/5
By Student Ionas
I think this app works fine for what it does, but I think audiobooks should be able to be played from the regular Nook App. Also, it would be great if they had a sleep function.
Awful App 1/5
I've had this apps for awhile now. To open it I have to try at least 4 time+ it starts to open and then closes. I've had this app on different phones and it's the same. They need to fix it!!
Nook Daily Finds 5/5
I'm an Audible Platinum member but I had to download the Nook Audiobooks app because I'm a loyal Nook user. The daily finds are better bargains than the Audible subscription so I switch between the two. Barnes & Noble surprises me with great books and I choose my own books with Audible!
App won't open now. Crashes immediately. I've reinstalled several times and after entering username and password, app exits. I want a refund on all my audio books.
Why can't I make a bookmark? 3/5
What is really frustrating about this app, is not being able to bookmark or save your spot and being able to open up another device and pick up where you left off. Maybe it's me , but I don't think so. FRUSTRATING!
Won't load 1/5
It asks for my email & password and once I put it in, it just exits out of the app all together. I've deleted & installed it back like 4/5 times and it still does the same thing. I have a iPhone 6 and it worked fine the first time I ever installed it. I don't know what's going on with it now. But it's really annoying.
Works fine, three stars for no purchase ability 3/5
Three stars because none of Barnes and Noble apps allow purchasing direct within the app, I'm sure there's a reason, but it annoys me.
As far as the app's functionality, I read the reviews saying it didn't work, but it worked fine for me on an iPhone 6S, and iPad Air. I listened to Hornfischer's "Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" all the way to Dallas and back.
There was one flaw, for the first 20 minutes the playback stopped at each new track, requiring me to hit play again. It's possible it was something on my phone, or in my audio system connection, as I could find no other mention of it, and it actually went away after a bit and has played flawlessly since.
Crashed as soon as it was downloaded! 1/5
As soon as I downloaded the app, I opened the app, and it crashed. Doesn't work!
Won't connect 1/5
I I downloaded the app and I was unable to download any of the audiobooks. It kept saying I did not have a connection. I Close out the app and reloaded it to more times and it still gave me the same message. Very disappointed because I really wanted to listen to the audio books. All my other Wi-Fi connections were working this one just would not connect.😢
What happened? 1/5
By Lovin Verizon 😊
I use to enjoy both nook books and nook audio but for the past month nook audio will not load. I have deleted and re-loaded the app several times and it continues not to work; are you fixing the app or are you doing away with the app, I would like to know.
Won't load and every time I click on app shuts down.
PLEASE FIX!!! 1/5
App worked until your latest update. Please fix it. My housework is suffering. 😫
Bugs not fixed 1/5
Bug fixes LOL. app was working fine until recent updates. Now it just crashes when you try to start it. Please fix this.
App will not work 1/5
You updated it now I can't even open the app
I'd like to try it: 1/5
App will download but crashes when you try to open it. Already tried to reinstall. Please fix the problem.
The app doesnt work. At all. As soon as you sign in the app closes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but the same problem persists.. Fix this!!
Won't load 1/5
Frustrated - downloaded the app with high expectations & great anticipation. When trying to purchase my first nook audio it was first difficult to even find the title for purchase as an audio (had become aware of it via email advertisement from Barnes n Noble). Finally found it - made the purchase - the download was sent to my "regular" nook app. When I tried to open the Audio Nook app it would say it was downloading my books then crash. It has done this several times... even after deleting the app & re downloading the app it's self UGH!
Now I have the book - it downloaded in regular library & is not audio. HELP!
Audio Book App 4/5
The reason you cannot buy a book or audio within the App is that Apple will not allow it to be. You can only buy a book or audio in IBooks or iTunes. There's is a Barnes and Noble App to purchase these items and then send it to your Book App. The same applies to kindle. You need the Amazon store app to buy a Kindle book or audiobook.
BN you can do better 2/5
I haven't used the app yet, to listen to a book mostly because I couldn't buy one. I was disappointed to find you still cant make purchases directly from the app. Even a link to the BN web site or app store would be nice. It's kind of stupid to browse through books and not even get pricing, and whats the purpose of a wish list you cant use. I have been an advocate of nook since day one, defending the program from my "kindle" friends. BN. You can do better with this app and the reader in the way of purchasing. YOUR MISSING THE BOAT! After finally going straight to the BN site I found that audio books are significantly cheeper at BN than other sites. Fix this portion of the app and you will be 10 steps ahead of of your audio book competitors.
I just installed the iOS nook audio app and went shopping for content. A novella that runs just under 3 hours is $11.99 (on sale!) in audio and $2.99 in nook text. No, thanks.
Nook audio Books 2/5
By Javar v
I hope once I purchase a audio book, nook don't steal my money like the last time I purchased audio books. Not very impressed over all with this app. Still can't purchase my books of the same app on my I phone. Needs improvement!!!
Great app! 5/5
Excited to be able to listen on my Apple devices now! Great job Nook.
Great app! 5/5
You have to go to the audio books website to purchase but great app to listen to while driving to work.
Love audiobooks 5/5
Nice app, I like the minimalist design. Glad that I can listen to my audiobooks from B&N on my iPad now.
Finally you guys do audiobooks on my iPhone. Good clean app.
Good app 5/5
Great app to use in the car during my commute! You do have to go to the NOOK Audiobooks website to purchase, but that’s not a surprise since it’s the same for other audiobooks (and even eBooks) apps out there, and it’s easy to navigate.
Decent app 4/5
Has pretty good selection and good audio quality
Not being able to create an account in app was strange but the app seems stable and is fine to use once your up and running.
Where to I buy? 1/5
I have spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to buy a nook audiobook. Still have no idea.
Idk I just wanted to write a review
This is annoying. There isn't even a buy button on the app and you have to go to the website to do it. Plus: I was told you could get three free books when you first sign on. LIARS! You can NOT do that! Just like Nook Video. Come on B&N make some good apps for once, and oh my gosh fix all the dumb ones
I love this app 5/5
Easy to use during my long commute in the car.
