  • Love this app, I live off it! Collections are inspired! Jun 15, 2020

    By H2OLGD
    My favorite app. I use it every day. Update to recent post for your most recent upgrade to your app. I absolutely love the fact that I can put books into collections. I think it’s probably one of the greatest improvements to the app up to date! So thank you!! Having said that after a bunch of updates a changes they've changed many things that make it not as fun to work with or use. I literally live off this app, because I'm fully disabled and it's the only way I can make it through the day without going insane 99% of the time. Please forget this new clip thing. Why would anyone want that? Go back to general bookmarks. And every single time you do a drastic update like this, I loose all of my books that are not downloaded to my device for like a week. This is getting ridiculous. I shouldn't loose my books every time you update! So once again I only have 25 books, and I have to figure out how to get back 225ish books, unless you guys do another update and I miraculously get them back or I loose them again after I've just gotten them back. Please fix all these errors. And maybe, just maybe, you should send surveys out to ALL of your customers to see if they even want this crazy stuff you think we do before you change our perfectly acceptable bookmarks to clips. Or if you want to keep both for heavens sake make them separate. They are too incongruent to keep together.

  • Great book if your from Texas or want to understand its people. Jun 20, 2020

    By Rogerabagado
    Being a 4th generation Texan (at least) this book brought back lots of memories. I suspect my politics and age (I’m about 15 years younger) are very similar to the Authors. Born in Midland and growing up in Fort Worth and living in Lubbock I can say the author truly gets Texas. Having spent the last 30 years in El Paso I am not sure he really appreciates the greatness and uniqueness of our fair city which is truly the brackish water of culture and history and the best city to live in in Texas. With that said, this truly was a great book and I throughly enjoyed it. My son also listened to it and although he has spent most of his life in far West Texas he enjoyed the book and is the one who had me buy it. My 94 year old father introduced the book to my son and he enjoyed it but I suspect his political views differ from the authors enough that it probably caused a slightly lower rating. However, he enjoyed the book and because he was deeply involved in Austin politics most of his life as a lobbyist he knew personally many of the characters in the book and while he did not agree exactly on the facts (he is a business Republican) he said it was 98% accurate. Very enjoyable and great learning experience about the state I call home!

  • ABSOLUTELY LOVE-please fix sleep timer Aug 2, 2019

    By WV-Local
    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my audible app!! I’m an avid listener & overall have not had any issues. Once I purchase a book it automatically (within seconds) appears in my library for download which is EXCELLENT transition time. My only minor complaint is when I use the sleep timer and turn it off BEFORE the time has run out, it ALWAYS goes to sleep 2 minutes after I turn OFF the timer. I turn off the timer because I want to continue listening without sleep timer on. Yes I know TWO minute is minor issue but can be very annoying waiting for story to stop in 2mins so I can restart play! So would appreciate the fix in next update. My thought on new update is a way to arrange our library. Right now they’re arranged by purchase date until you listen& then it’s most recent listen. I would love ability to separate by author, type, book series etx. Something like that would be great for finding old favorites. EVEN BETTER IDEA...if you could develop an alert to let readers know when there is a NEW BOOK RELEASE IN SERIES we already own! When you have large library it’s hard to remember what books your waiting on the next in series! Would DEFINITELY increase my already long list of purchases. Overall GREAT JOB! I RECOMMEND ALL THE TIME! Just fix the 2mins turn off glitch when I turn OFF timer (before it runs out) & please consider library organization ideas!

    Have had the app since early March of this year. It's been an amazing addition to my already prodigious reading library. Wish more free credits came every month, but have thoroughly enjoyed the time spent listening to my collection. Hope to grow my collection into a truly eclectic library. Worth every penny spent on the app, and on the books.

  • Can’t wait to get my hands on her next! Apr 20, 2020

    By goodvibesgoodbooks
    This was one of those books that you not only savor, but you swap between physical and audio because you can’t get enough. The setting was perfect, the characters were hilarious, and the depth was just right. You follow Marin as she takes on a role she never thought she would be in.. PR and media manager for a rock band. But she not only crushes the position, she gains a crush on a band member. You follow along with the band and crew as they make their way all over the country on tour. You see them banter, you see them prank and you see them fall in love.. or lust. I usually have something to knit pick about whether it’s lack of charter build or creating an atmosphere you feel a part of, but Lisa did nothing for me to knit pick. This world was so well thought out, I can’t wait to dive into every single book I have of hers and also... I really need a prequel to see how Craig and Phoebe started. The only reason I gave this book a 4 rather then a solid 5 was I had a bit of a rough time with the big problem and how quickly it seemed to be resolved, I wish it would have been a little longer and we got to see more effort and what happened to.. patch things up on all accounts. I’m a girl who doesn’t trust easily and loses trust quickly so I have a hard with any story that someone’s forgiven too quickly.

    It was alot easier to use before with the sub-categories, but now i have to type in the category that i am interested in. And even then, once youre browsing in that category and click on a book, you lose your place and have to start all over again typing in your category if you want to browse further. Such a pain! Why fix what it isnt broke?!!!

    The app has just become too complicated. I would suggest you create a "light" version of the app that is exactly like the app was 2 years ago. Load straight to my library and no fancy home screen. This is a pay service. I don't like the forced advertising of the home screen and it just takes extra time and resources to load something I don't want. Also, please stop with the multiple part books unless it's huge. A 10 hour or less book should be one part.

    By D McDuck
    I used to love Audible, but it seems that lately they are more interested in driving sales than in providing a good user experience. If you turn off "Member Notifications" so as not to be pestered by annoying "Hey, look, we have a new author" (I couldn't care less!!!!!) and the like, you can NO LONGER control the audio book from the notification shade or the lock screen. I have complained about this to them for months and they claim not to be able to fix it. The new library layout foisted on us without warning is clunky and the categories are arbitrary and ridiculous. You can no longer sort by author or title. I've been a member for more than 15 years, so trying to go through and "categorize" hundreds of books could take hours that I don't have.

    The books are great and the service is also pretty decent. My issue is when it tells me I should switch to audible canada. Instead of giving me the option to switch it keeps on showing me black lives matter reading lists and LGBTQ reading lists and ads. I've seen all the books already. It makes me very irritated because I would like a Canadian account.

    By Allon Fennell II
    For at least the last four months, the app has been unable to reliably keep your place in books. It'll try to start you over at the beginning of the book. You have to force stop the app to get it to sync to your last spot again. They've been made aware of this bug, and have yet to do anything about it. Further, in android auto, when pausing/resuming the app it'll randomly rewind a couple chapters. Can't really pin this one down too well. I just know I've had to skip around multiple chapters to figure out where I was when it happens

  • I Love Audible...But... Oct 5, 2019

    By Rim a
    I’ve had Audible for nearly 5 years. I started as a way to help me get back to reading since physically reading was somewhat limited by reality. But now when I walk my dogs, run errands, go to the work related matters, drive for a long road trip, ride my bicycle, or even work in the kitchen, I always make sure to have books to listen to. My library has at least 300 by now, and I love seeing it grow. I also love the whisper sync for Kindle which lets me read or listen. I also love the integration with my Alexa devices. I can go from room to room without wasting my phone battery, and have her keep reading to me. Here are my only two recommendations:1- this is the most important. Please for the love of all that is holy let us organize our books by subject matter/ category or whatever we call it like we can in Kindle! I need to do this on my PHONE as I cannot scroll through the ALL my books to find old books I’ve forgotten are even there. I need to put them by category. Please please please do this most basic thing for your subscribers. 2- please have more whisper sync and more affordable ways to purchase kindle after purchasing the audible. Thank you.

    I love Audible. Listening to audio books allows me so much more opportunity to dig into books that reading them would not allow. Such as when working or driving. The variety of books offered is so diverse & I appreciate the reviews. I have actually tried different genres that I never would have if not for checking out reviews. I take advantage of many daily offers which has also encouraged me to try different genres.

  • Better and better- not perfect Sep 18, 2017

    By jsbow-long
    This app gets better and better but it isn't perfect. The app has great features and a few clunky ones. More good ones than it used to have. They are being improved over time. All in all, I'm happy with my experience. I can return books I didn't like if they are returned within 6 months. I don't read (listen to) them that quickly. I buy faster than I listen to them. Some times I finish them and the "finished" indication doesn't stay associated with the book through app revisions. Not Cool! The stories included in the titles are often well done but some presentations need serious rework - not many - but the choice for presenter could sometimes be improved. I've listened to a couple dozen different presenters by now ( a couple hundred books ). If those that were "flat" could be trained or replaced with more skilled people a lot of the stories would be better but, sometimes the story is the problem and that is a shame. It becomes easier to tell the difference between problems in story and presentation as you hear more of each. The short samples offered before you buy are most helpful ( at least to me ) only after my ear has become trained by listening to a goodly number of books by many presenters.

    I’ve been a member on/off for many years. You pay a monthly/annual fee and get credits based on your subscription. The fee you pay is often less than the price of most audiobooks. You can pay for the book or use a credit. There are lots of reviews, some are fake but most seem to be genuine. I like that you can hear a 3-5 minute sample before purchasing. I have gotten credits refunded for books I was unhappy with, (books I didn't listen to completely). Customer service has been great. I had to discontinue membership for a while and lost nothing during the time I canceled my membership. I kept the credits I already had and all of the books I had in my library. Starting my membership again was easy. I do wish that reviewers would add ore detail instead of simply saying ”I like the book”. That’s not a review. Why do you like/dislike the book? Was it clean, full of profanity, sex, violence? Was this book fit for the whole family? Did the story flow, was the narrator easy to listen to; did they have an annoying voice, were the characters voices distinguishable? That’s a review! A review is meant to help other customers decide if they want to purchase the book or not.

  • Updated review. Jun 4, 2018

    By Ytarya
    Still great. Still no Audible for Apple Watch! I really hope you will provide this great service on Apple Watch!Please make an Audible app for Apple Watch there are some nice improvements, but I can't focus on them as long as my chief gripe isn't addressed. At the very least, please tell your loyal customers whether you are trying to do this--or if you are even considering it. Audible is one of the apps I use out often. I bought an Apple watch so I could listen to audiobooks while walking my dog and could leave my iPhone at home sometimes. I have seen some work-arounds, but so far have not been able to listen to audiobooks on my watch. Audible doesn't show any inclination to develop an Apple watch app. I have asked. I guess I will try purchasing an audio book from iTunes, and see if that works. If it does (which I am not optimistic about) I might have to make my walking purchases from iTunes instead of Audible. I wouldn't like to ditch my Audible account to completely, as I love it. The hundreds of dollars I have spent on Audible books proves that. But I disappointed at this apparent indifference to the requests of Audible's most loyal customers.

    Easy enough to use. The “chapters” in audible however don't ever align with the way the chapters are actually presented in the book. Nor are the chapters titled in audible, so it's not easy find a specific chapter you're looking for. This is further exacerbated by the fact that there's no word “search” function so again difficult to go back to find things you listened to earlier. If this was fixed, I'd give it 5 stars.

  • New bugs cropping up recently Jul 6, 2018

    By Ajk7577
    This app used to be great. Recently though, whenever I try to use it, there are annoying lags in responsiveness. I press play and it won’t play for 10 seconds. Or I try to view my cloud library and have to wait a few seconds before the app will switch from device view to cloud. The Bluetooth connection has also become glitchy, especially when connected to my car system - I press pause on my car’s screen and it takes a few seconds to pause, then starts again, then finally pauses, over the course of another 5 seconds. The app also no longer responds if I try to control play with my phone while it’s connected to my cars bluetooth (at least, it didn’t today). Lastly, if I’m in the library tab and want to look up info on a downloaded book, I can’t just tap the three dots at the right hand side of the book without the book starting to play. This is annoying if I’m currently listening to something (or talking to someone on the phone - the book still starts playing!) and want to look up info on a book. I’ve been using this app for a few years, and this is the first time I’ve really been frustrated with it. Until now, it’s mostly operated smoothly.

  • This should be a 5-star review-30 second rewind gone Apr 19, 2020

    By jdempsey12345
    Unfortunately recent updates of the app changed what was an elegant solution to an important feature to one that doesn’t work at all. In past versions Audible app had a feature that quickly allowed you to change the rewind or advance buttons from ones that rewound to the beginning or ends of a chapter to one that changed the buttons to rewound or advance 30 seconds only. Even better you could tap these buttons multiple times and, for example, quickly replay a short passage you need to hear again. The most recent updates killed this value-added feature and made it so you have to swipe backwards and forwards an indeterminate time. This feature is value taken away! I am an avid listener and have purchased almost 600 books from Audible. The content and some of the narration are excellent. I hope they pay attention to their frequent listeners and fix their clunky new software versions to the great tools they had until recent releases. It is frustrating when an app you use regularly changes from excellent to mediocre.

  • Not a fan of the new look Jun 16, 2020

    By therelybare
    I’ve been an Audible member from longer than I can remember and the years when the app was simple were good years, however over the last few years the app gets more complicated to use because they keep cramming new features in the app that I’ll never use. And yet they keep cramming stuff in there and the app requires a degree in Computer Science to decode it. I’ve invested a lot of money in buying these books to have them lost in an app that’s trying to do too much. Re: the loss of the 30 sec forward/back. They didn’t get rid of it, they just made it an either/or. If you go in settings, under player, you can either choose chapter or 30 sec. You can’t have both anymore. I wish you would make an Audible Classic app that just had the library and the player and left out the other stuff that I don’t use or at least provide a setting to simplify the app. I hope you would care about your customers who have spent a lot of money over the years to put out
