    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?!!!

  2. Adam Dionisi-avatar

    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.

  3. D McDuck-avatar

    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.

  4. Glenn Paterson-avatar

    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.

    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 there is a bug that needs to be fixed. Namely, the fact that I have recently uninstalled and reinstalled audible on my smartphone. At each time the order in which I have listened to the books has been put out of order. And, when I leave the app, come back and try to to go to the library, it shuts off. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

  7. Jamison L-avatar

    I hadn't read a book in over 5 years until I got audible, and just last year I finished 16 books! Audible is great while driving, doing household chores, cooking, or while working. I don't have the attention for normal book, so Audible lets me finally read the stories I enjoy! The performances are great, but the audio medium for story telling takes some getting used to. Couldn't reccomend it enough!

  8. Matt Meloan-avatar

    The app currently doesn't allow you to modify or cancel your subscription. The only way to currently do this is by logging in from a full-fledged web browser, or using the full version of the website from your smartphone. That's at best, an unforgivable design flaw, and at worst, intentional obfuscation. Automatic 1-star, would give zero if I could.

  9. bhumika trivedi-avatar

    bhumika trivedi


    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.

  10. Jesper Lind-avatar

    Used to love this app but they are now clearly making politicial statements and attempting to brainwash/manipulate you. Examples can be overloading your library, store and suggestions that only match their company beliefs. You will never find perspectives on both sides anymore. Most recently, the search results are also being manipulated. My latest search for a specific author name generate a single (of his 10+ books) and 20+ unrelated political books that audible wants you to read.

  12. John Harris-avatar

    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.

  13. Chris Hugo-avatar

    I HATE AUDIBLE!!!! I hate that I have invested so many years in this app. It keeps getting worse. It won't keep up with where I left off. If you are considering the app, stay away! It may be better on apple but it totally sucks on Android. It will work for a while then they screw it up again. Consider Google play books instead. I've been a customer for over 10 years and I'm completely dissatisfied. I would pay money to move my 200+ titles to a different book player.

  14. T10 Events-avatar

    I definitely needed to read more but with a commute that involves me actually driving, audiobooks were the best option. I hesitated signing up for Audible; I didn't understand paying a monthly fee AND having to purchase books, but the monthly fee gives you credit for 1 book a month. Now, I end up purchasing extra credits because I finish 1 before the month is up. I'm expanding my knowledge in a fun easy way. Thanks Audible for keeping me honest when I say I am a reader!

  15. Manan Khaneja-avatar

    UI = Poor design + Bugs. Let me tell you about one of the bugs I found, which hasn't been fixed in the most recent update. Whenever I go into bestsellers, there is a filter called "Sort & Refine" which essentially sorts books in different genres (and an option named "All categories" ). The problem with this filter is that, it only loads bestsellers in "Romance". Whatever option I select, it always loads romance(Ugh) Firstly, I feel that the service is overpriced and then such poor and buggy UI.

  16. Crystal Kaley-avatar

    the updates some are not as helpful as they seen they should be, it takes a bit to get used to the update. They are trying to make it better, I wish you could just click on the books in your collection and see the books/author, in instead of remember the name of the book/Author I just wish there was a better "link up up" I have the romance bundle add on but it would be cool to see this type of bundle in other genres/mystery/classics/ect it's how I found great books.

  17. connie nordie-avatar

    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.

  18. Sandra West-avatar

    I love audible, it's very easy and relaxing and I love that you can put a timer on. Otherwise I would get carried away and forget to do my chores. It's great that you get credits so you can get books and it is a big plus towards what you spend. I have learned so much and found some excellent author's to add to my list. I have it on my phone too so I can listen on the go. So glad that I have the app. Thanks Audible for being there.

    Papa Ski Bear Hangtown Ca.


    Audiable Has Been A Excellent Companion since my motorcycle accident along with PTSD issues that make physically reading a warn hardcover or Kindle books on my iPhone almost impossible at times. The key,! "Always sample books for narrator compatibility with the read and your own listening preferences; a narrator can make or break an audiobook- there are great books in here that sometimes get "thrown under the bus" due to a unstable narrator. Books always download and play; EVERYTIME ON TIME!

  20. Mano Reddy-Yule-avatar

    Mano Reddy-Yule


    I am a member. Currently listening to "The best of us" by Robyn Carr. The narrator uses "he said, she said" continuously. It is most annoying. I tried to communicate with Audible via my account. My email address and password comes up with an error message yet there is no problem with the deduction from my credit card. I would like to give feed back on listening to other books, the narrator attempts to convey the voice of another person, which just doesn't work.

  21. Harold Pringle-avatar

    As a trucker I can listen to books all day. I was buying books on CD but my selection was limited. When I finally downloaded audible 2 weeks ago I found all the books I had wanted to listen to for a couple of years. They're a little more expensive than the cds but I'm 2 weeks smarter than I was before. Jack Reacher, Historical accounts and Eric Jerome Dickey is right down my alley and they're all on Audible. Thanks.

  22. Kim Schmelling-avatar

    This is a great app I have found every book I have ever needed, even books for my son for school. I have had no problems exchanging a book, they are great about that. I like being able to find a particular book for someone and being able to send it to them as a gift. The best thing I don't have to worry about getting the book back on time to the library 🙂.

  23. Stace Con-avatar

    Great app with good functionality. The only suggestion to make would be to sync my kindle purchases of read books with the audible app rather than have to switch between the kindle / audible apps to confirm if I had purchased the book previously. Plus the option to manage my subscription or cancel membership.

  24. Dev Preston-avatar

    An excellent selection of interesting, informative and entertaining things to listen to. They mostly aren't cheap, but if you buy a membership then you have freebies and good value sales to make it worthwhile. The audio quality is mostly good, but not always great. The app is simple and does not rely on streaming so it's great for listening while travelling, when data signal can be patchy. The sleep timer can be set by minutes or to the end of the chapter, which is very useful.

  25. Liv Chapé-avatar

    Some Audibles are amazing, but other recordings are not great. I would recommend testing the sample with your headphones first. I use wireless. I'm also annoyed that I can't listen to some titles, which are actually available elsewhere. Overall, listening to books has changed my life! I'm having so much fun with it! I don't think I would've had the time or patience for a new language without this! Listening at 0.90 or 1x speed works well. Ps. I'm also loving the 2-for-1 sale option!

  26. Shannon Wilson-avatar

    My daughter and I both use the app. she is using it to read Harry Potter books and I am using it to read murder mystery. This definitely comes and great use when we are on quarantine as well as trying to do chores and cleaning up in the house. We can definitely stay in tune with our books while doing what we need to do.

  27. Cody Henderson-avatar

    Solid app. I love reading but with 3 young kids it can be hard to sit with a physical book. I throw my books on a speaker or headphones and listen while cleaning or driving and it allows me to still digest information I want. The content on here is great. Preview option is good and returns if you ever need to are also easy. Many books that have charts or other review tables in them in the physical copy also come with a PDF copy available for your download as well.

  28. Wendy Sinclair-avatar

    I have to uninstall and reinstall this app every couple months. I'll be listening to a book and all the sudden it has no sound. They sound will not come back no matter what I do--restart the phone, switch to a different book, ect. The only thing that works is to uninstall and reinstall and it's a huge pain.

  29. Michael Ricketts-avatar

    Michael Ricketts


    Every book you can think of. Great listens. A must for people on the road a lot. Good prices and if you need extra credits for books, they have good deals. Quick to listen,just purchase,listen,and keep for as long as you want.

  30. Dustin Clark-avatar

    Very unhappy with the major update to the audio format. I can't download over cell service any more, I have to have a wifi connection to download any books. All for what? An "improved" format that I can't hear the difference? I go through multiple books a month and am often not near convenient wifi, now I have to go out of my way in order to download.

  31. Onnada Kaleh-avatar

    The actual best. Some audio books that are only from Audible. Happy with the readers for the most part. Can listen while driving, switch to my laptop when I get home seamlessly. I love that you can hear a sample of readers before buying and that you can save titles to a 'wish list' to buy later with a credit or when it's on sale or whatever. Cheaper audio books than Kobo. 📚

  32. ambrjet-avatar

    After the latest update, my stats are all messed up. Most don't appear at all or there is a perpetual loading screen. Not the biggest deal because I can still listen to books, but I liked tracking all my stats. I tried contacting customer support, but I just got a canned non-answer that didn't even address my questions or concerns, and funnily enough told me to update the app!

  33. Becky T-avatar

    I've been using Audible for years. They offer a lot of different ways to keep audiobooks inexpensive. I love it. I had to canceled my membership once (due to my own $$ situation) & it's true-the books that you buy with credits are yours to keep. I use hoopla & libby to check out books. While they offer a lot, Audible has a collection that is unmatched. 99% of the time that I can't find it through library, Audible has it. Even if the cost is $60, I can still buy it with my $14.95 credit.

  34. JoAnne Daigle-avatar

    The app had stopped working properly on my android tablet. It was shutting down after a few seconds into a book. Very frustrating as the tablet was where I listened to most of my books. I was seriously considering terminating my account if it didn't get fixed. Tonight, I decided to re-install the app for the umpteenth time. IT WORKS!!!

  35. Nancy Thompson-avatar

    I love this program!!! I am somebody who doesn't have the time and patience to read anymore. I felt that i wasn't going to find the happiness that i used to find reading books. Audible has brought back that joy of reading. Absolutley love this program. At work, in the car, on Alexa when I am cooking dinner.... This is a life changer for me. I wish it would put book series in reading order so you will know which one to order next.

  36. Liza Mendoza-avatar

    What happened? Now there's nothing when I click on the links to see what other books are in the series or written by the author! This had been happening since yesterday! Even trying to search the database will give me nothing when I click on "See all Titles." Verrrry frustrating!

    All around brilliant app. I have always been a person who preferred reading stories than watching films etc and this is the best app for me because it allows me to have all the enjoyment of reading a story with none of the hassle of reading a book normally. Now i can finish books in a matter of hours and suffer zero side effects like tired eyes weary body issues that come with reading a book in the conventional way.

  38. Sam Herring-avatar

    I have loved audible from the time I downloaded a few years ago. My reading is usually an escape from reality. However, I do not appreciate the home page in the store becoming so politically biased. I couldn't care less which wing of the same political bird that people support. Surely I am not the only one tired of seeing opinionated views of current events being shoved down our throats everywhere we look for entertainment.

  39. Charles Cyr-avatar

    I've been enjoying Audible for close to 10 years and have listened to scores of books that I wouldn't have time to read. I listen with noise canceling ear buds and ear protecting headphones while I mow the lawn and fields and do other jobs outdoors. It has given me great pleasure to lbe able to listen to classics, nonfiction, fiction, self- help.... Audible has been a life changer for me. I'm so appreciative of their service and forever devoted.

  40. natalie sefton-avatar

    used to have everything you needed in the app. but lately it has mostly stopped showing offers like daily deal etc so you have to go to the website every day to see what's on offer. preferred it when I could just open the app and find them there. Oh and customer services appear to be offshore and send generic pre written resolution emails which more often than not have nothing to do with the issue you wrote about in the first place.

  41. Oliver Maurhart-avatar

    Oliver Maurhart


    I love audiobook, but since the last update they obviously turned on auto-play whenever my phone connects to a Bluetooth device and I can't turn it off! So I missed whole chapters already, because my phone connected to a Bluteooth device I did not listen to. They reduced the settings to basically nothing - useless. Please Audible and Amazon: do not "update" your apps to the worse. Stop that! **Update:** audible made auto-play optional. Thx! **Update:** audible introduced Genres and Collections and a brand new sorting of "All", "Not Started", ... of my audiobooks. Which I do not care at all (YMMV) and - btw - is flawed too. The incompetence of the product planning and QA is astonishing: two steps forward, three back.

  42. Alexander Wrobel-avatar

    After the last update I had to change my rating from 5 to 1 star. So many issues now: it won't sync my audio book to my kindle anymore, all my personal statistics are gone, etc. It is a shame, I'm a long time subscriber and used to love the App, but it is completely rubbish since the last update. Please fix all the issues and just bring back the old status

  43. Makayla Johnson-avatar

    Makayla Johnson


    I would say that the sorting doesn't really make sense. Honestly there shouldn't be an all section. When I finish a book it would make better sense to just have it go into the finished section. Whats new in downloaded. I think we all use the app enough to know what book we've started and not started enough to know which one to open. I understand the update was "supposed to help" but its just become complicated and a little confusing

  44. samuel threlfall-avatar

    The only reason for four instead of five stars is that when playing through Echo Dot, there appears to be a lot of feedback and interference. I've tried a few things, restarting the app, turning off wifi, turning in WiFi, moving my phone closer moving the Echo Dot etc etc.Not exactly a show stopper, I can use headphones or my phone's speakers. Other than that, the app works great, and is fantastic value for for money, especially with one free audiobook a month.

  45. Timothy Miller-avatar

    This app is great! If they have your book, then you always have someone to read for you. Don't get me wrong, I love to read but sometimes it just isn't possible! For example, while you're driving, showering, cooking, working, or you can even set a sleep timer so you can listen as you lay down for bed! All and all, this app is useful considering the vast knowledge that lays within Audible's expansive library and the limited amount of time you have to read for yourself.

  46. Tremayne Huddleston-avatar

    Tremayne Huddleston


    So far the app is really nice and the selection of audiobooks caters to a wide audience. There is definitely something for you. Samples are offered to help you decide if you want to make a purchase. The monthly sub is convenient and worth the investment. Pairs very well with the Echo products. I do wish there was an more convenient way to navigate through sections of an audiobook, I found it difficult at first. If you plan to use multiple devices to listen, then use in app bookmarks.

  47. Bo Thomas-avatar

    Within this past year I've had many problems with this app losing my place. This can be very time consuming and annoying. I'm thinking this problem could be related to android auto. Sometimes when I open the android auto app it shows that I haven't started a book. I then, disconnect my phone and open the app without connected to android auto and it works then I can plug it back in and use android auto. App needs an update to fix what they broke in a previous update

  48. Kathrin Jahn-avatar

    I have been using this app for almost two years and it used to be amazing until it started having glitches a few weeks ago, e.g. when I pause, it sometimes goes back to where I started listening that day. Or it doesn't record stats accurately. And just yesterday, all of my stats were suddenly gone. This is super frustrating! Please fix this!!!

  49. K Nelson-avatar

    I love audible. I love to read but don't have time to sit and read so audible has helped me stay in touch with my reading. I can listen will working on something and still understand the book. I've found that reading a book and hearing it to I've taken away somethings I missed while physically reading. The app is easy to use and I like seeing how much I'm reading daily or even monthly. I also like the achievement badges! I really enjoy audible!

  50. Hamid Musavi-avatar

    The latest update does not save the position. Recently every new update has a new annoying bug. Every change they make has made the app harder to use not to mention adding new bugs. Don't understand why they bother updating it. Please fix they bugs and drop changing anything. If you aren't competent to do it right, don't do anything at all.

  51. irene Holle-avatar

    I love using audible to listen instead of reading books because of my time. I read/ listen to more books than I was before. I always listen to any book when I'm on the way to work/home, when I'm cleaning the house, etc. The narrator mostly good to, that added the experience of listening to audible more enjoyable. Good job! 👍

  52. Hannah Martell-avatar

    I'm obsessed with audiobooks. I can listen when driving to work or errands or even when I'm at home cleaning. The audible subscription is worth it for me because I have a large list of books to listen to and can go through it really fast. Also the option to return a book if you didn't enjoy it is nice, because if I know I'm never going to read/listen to it again I don't have to own it forever. I love audible

  53. Jen G-avatar

    I love Audible. The real jewel is hearing an author read their own work with such passion that the work's aspiration delves even deeper into my psyche. I love that I can listen in different places. I listen when I drive, as a passenger, or if I'm doing a chore that is "mindless", when my mind is open to new concepts.

    Good app but sound quality could be better. I still recommend the app. Sound quality should be default. But even the best is not very good. Some times I have to increase the volume extra because I feel its difficult to hear. Some times the audio files are slightly corrupted. Whenever this happens I'm not sure if there is a larger glitch. Larger glitches has happened like two parts have switched places. Whenever I get any audio issue the problem has stil been there after a redownload.

    Absolutely love this. Was introduced to it by a friend and because of my work commitment and time with the family I don't get the time I would like to pick up a book anymore. But with this I can listen to it driving to work or when I am in the shower.

    Being a long time user of the Audible, the service itself is more than just some stars for me as basically I cannot live without it, however, the App, being a developer myself, still seems an unfinished app, definitely the web view part, settings, store and accounts seems different App entirely compared to the Library, I understand why they did this but this type of design has so many limitation and problems, in short, app itself is a 2 star app but service more than 5 for me.

    App works very well. The only issue is that there is no way to allow playback over notifications. Currently if you get a notification, the app pauses, makes the notification sound - there is a 1 second delay - and then it resumes. It is super frustrating to listen when receiving other notifications. There should be an option to allow playback on top of notifications! Also on Android 11, app doesn't support the new playback options straight from the notification toggles

    Updated my review with the latest app updates. Audible happily added Genres and Collections. It took me quite a while to sort through my books to place in Collections, as there was no easy way to sort through the list of books. They all show up, and they are in order by purchase date, I believe. It would have been easier to sort by Author before assigning them to a collection. Also, another recommendation is to have the collections place the books in order by book# in the series. An improvement.

    After the new update half my downloaded books disappeared. Not possible to search in the "dowloaded" titles, so I have to look at them ONE BY ONE (I have hundreds) to find anything. Plus having different libraries for "started", "not started" , "finished" and "downloaded" is absolutely not intuitive. The search function does not work for downloaded titles Where are half my books? My books are not in order, so I have to find the ones I listen to :( HELP, I WANT TO CRY

    Audible has made audiobooks portable and easy to enjoy anywhere! I have a bit of an issue after one of the last android upgrades, when upon pausing I can no longer see my exact location in the book (even though if unpaused it actually continues where I left off). I also wish I my partner and I could share an account, but they did not let us merge accounts. A very inconvenient situation as we didn't want to loose our current collection to create a new household account!

  61. Sheila Zella-avatar

    I couldn't say how long I've been on Audible, 12 years would be my best guess. I can listen all day long while I work around the house. There is also an incredible selection. I love the feel and the smell of a normal books but I can't seem to get enough of these audible books. There are suggestions based on what you read and you can borrow some books. Reasonably price considering you can go anywhere in the world you want. Everyone should have this app!

  62. Steven Kellams-avatar

    Great options for purchases, with lots of quick recordings of voice talent to get new books on the audible market. But, the app itself is frustrating in that the library can not be controled enough to place specific books in priority, as in order of chronological order for a book series release. So I am constantly scrolling through old titles to find the one I want to listen to. I want a series be auto loaded into a collection and the collection to be sorted better than a-z.

  63. Charlene Cheng-avatar

    I really like this product and company. Getting a new credit every month encourages me to keep exploring new books. I have yet to use their guarantee and return a book, as I've liked all my purchases and it's been over twenty books now! But I think the assurance that I can try something new appeals to me. Also, the sound quality is good and listening to a book is sometimes the only way to read in busy times of my life. Thank you Audible for bringing story into my mundane tasks.

  64. Achutam Jha-avatar

    Horrible, horrible app. The subscription doesn't mean I can stream audiobooks for free? I have to pay more? That's like Spotify charging for each song that you want to listen. What's more, a prepaid membership cannot be cancelled. Plus the interface is very bad. There is not one redeemable quality about the app.

  65. Joseph Coates-avatar

    I have fallen in love with audio books because of audible! I'm a graphic designer who works from home and I am also a multitasker, so I would often get distracted with other things while I should have been working. After a while of working my mind would get bored and I'd have to just get up and do something else and losing valuable time. But when I found audible through a YouTube channel named Blimey Cow, I found that I could work and keep my mind entertained with audio books at the same time!

  66. llspragulus-avatar

    I Love Audible! ...But not the newest update This newest update changed the look and functionality a bit and all for the better. However, this new update has me starting back at the beginning of a book everytime I close and restart; regardless of my forcing it to resync before closing and opening. I'm using a Razor Phone 2. Other than that its a great system!

  67. Chris Richards-avatar

    Audible user for 11 years. It's only in the last year that I started to use the app rather than my antiquated iPod to listen to my collection. Audible have done well with the app. I've have no major problems since I've been using it. Whisper-sync works well across devices. The app has useful features such as sleep timer and playback speed. The recent addition of collections is long overdue and most welcome.

  68. Karin Lavery-avatar

    I like Audibles as it works for me. There are books from different genres. I like you can listen to a small sample before you purchase. For me the narrators voice is crucial, they can make or break your experience. I have listened to.some wonderful books. I'm currently listening Chiffon Trenches by Andre Leon Talley. His voice is like liquid velvet.

  69. Karen Cooper-avatar

    Loved the app, been a member since 2009, off and on. Then I updated the app; huge mistake. It keeps signing me in, signing me out, signing me in, losing my library, signing me out, won't download any books, every time I go to settings to try and troubleshoot, yep signs me out again. I've signed in 12 times so far, what a waste of time and money. Very, very disappointed.

  70. Judy Jones-avatar

    I love Audible while I'm using it regularly! I rated it only three stars, however, because there are periods when I don't use it regularly. You can actually lose credits that have been paid for, so keep a close eye on your account if you fall into a non-regular usage time period.

  71. Jason Corso-avatar

    I like to read, but finding the time to sit with a physical book is difficult. Audible allows me to "read" anytime, anywhere. I commute about 45 min each way to work and I can read then. I can turn out the light before bed and read in the dark. The app has a driving mode and a sleep timer. The selection and value are great. So far I'm very happy. And have recomend to many people.

  72. D G-avatar

    Atleast for more than a year, most of the released audible contents are not listing the chapter titles/names i.e It simply list chapter1, chapter2, 3,4. Though flagged several times, the Audible content team keep saying that they are seriously looking into it. Unfortunately no progress shown. Hence I am rating this app with one 🌟. Hope each of you agree? If so choose 'Yes'

    Latest update has removed all of my stats! Not the biggest of deals but why include an entire stats section if you're going to randomly reset it to zero. The book reading part still works but for how much longer? What will the next upgrade produce? Perhaps all my books will disappear? Perhaps my credits will be reset to zero? Given the sloppy coding and inadequate QA to date, anything's possible. I have little confidence for the future of this app.

    I love my books it's the only thing I really look forward too! But this update has me crying! I've tried everything to fix it .i wish I never updated! please audible fix the update so I can continue my happiness! It plays for a second then shuts the whole app down I'm honestly freaking out! I pay too much and have been a loyal customer to be cheated like this!

  75. James Schaffer-avatar

    The audible selection is fine. The app is pure garbage. Features that have been around for a decade (like shake to refresh sleep timer) are still missing and the player has no option to show progress from the beginning of the title (it only shows hours until the end of the book). I presume this is because the design team is banging sticks and rocks together. Of course all the titles you buy are riddled with audible's drm that you can only remove if you're under 30. Avoid.

  76. sean dueck-avatar

    Good app, poor value for cost in my opinion. The experience of using this app is great. Good selection and the narration is good for the books I have. I like that you get to "keep" them in a library. You can download books for when you don't have wifi as well. I dislike that it is a subscription and offers less entertainment time monthly than much cheaper streaming services. 15$ gets 1 book a month (~10 hrs) but to buy more books is prohibitively expensive, often twice as much as print copies.

  77. Amit Mamgain-avatar

    The Audible subscription is not worth it. They expect you to pay for the monthly subscription but listen to just one book. Because if you will return book after reading and try to read a lot of books in a month just for the subscription they will block the returning. They want you pay for everybook even when you have paid for the subscription. What is the point if having a subscription then?!

  78. InfernalContraption1-avatar



    Superb selection, universally high quality of narration and sound, and a thoroughly enjoyable product overall. I drive a delivery route about 5 hours a night, and it is wonderfully soothing and centering to listen to great books as I travel. Highly recommended for anybody who loves to read but can't always devote the time to sit down with a book, or even people who just enjoy childhood memories of having stories read to them.

    Love Audible. Love the monthly free credit. Love that I can read while doing mundane tasks and time is scarce. Would give it a 5 if I could insert comments and bookmarks like Kobo. Very enjoyable and convenient phone app nonetheless. Thanks!

  80. Lenzy Gilmore-avatar

    I love this app but I'm giving it three stars because it does not show me all the content anymore. I have books in my wish list that I can not see. When I click on a book series name it shows me nothing. Please fix this problem.

    Firstly I've listened to audible cds for years while driving to and from work, so now that I'm working from home I decided to sign up and am so glad i did. I love the Audible Originals, the podcasts and music. I've shared with my mother who enjoyed it so much she signed up for Audibles!

  82. Alex Escalon-avatar

    Absolutely the BEST decision I've ever made in my life, was to get this app!!! I had so much trouble finding time to read, but this App changed all that. I listen to it in my car on my way to work. I'm obsessed with it. I've learned so much since I got it to the point that I healed myself of depression, anxiety, and stress just by learning about a self development. I use it daily! Thank you for this app!

  83. Kush Energy-avatar

    They update the app. Bestsellers doesn't work it keeps selecting a category automatically. Please by all means update it some more. Break it again. Thanks for updating every 2 days. It's such a great experience.

    Works most of the time. A few of the longer books I have purchased tend to stop playing about halfway through or the last 20 minutes of the download will be compromised and you can't hear the ending when stuck at work. Then just delete the book and redownload a few times and blam-o! Your problem is fixed until the next time. Overall I have 45 or more books and this has happened five times. Other then that, it is satisfactory. After downloading I make sure the last chapter works and then I'm sure

  85. Arch Angel-avatar

    Well, I'm new here, but off the bat, I already have issues. Was able to download my first 2 audio books with no problems. I buy a third audio book, get an email that I can start listening to it and nothing happens. I open the app and try to find it, nothing. Only my first 2 audio books. If this is going to be the norm, then, I'm out.

  86. B S-avatar

    Love audible but recently started having problems with app. Downloads taking ages or stop completely at around 30%. Had to keep uninstalling and reinstalling app. Never had any issue until last couple of weeks. Also wish app would go straight to library not sales page. I live in an area with rubbish phone signal so when I get in the car it just whirls and whirls until I drive somewhere with signal. Very annoying when I just want to get on and listen.

  87. DARPA-avatar

    There is a current problem with the app where I can't access the home page or my stats after the 2 recent Android updates as of writing this. When I started using the app, I thought the badges and seeing how many minutes I've listened each day to be pointless, however, it has really grown on me and I've really grown to love the services and performances! I think for $15 a month I will just go back to having Prime and reading books if the app does'nt work though.

  88. Kari Moore-avatar

    I have been a member since the first day Audible arrived on the scene. It used to take an entire day to download a book on a very small MP3 device. Now I enjoy Audible Books anywhere and can save as many as my device can hold or just download one at a time through the app where all of my books are in My Library for easy download accessing anytime I have an Internet connection. Listening to these books is like watching live theater performances and they are brilliantly spoken by many talents.

  89. Kristen C-avatar

    Downloaded for the free trail and ended up loving it. Some books are a bit expensive, although you can purchase additional credits which does with out saving you money if you go through more than 1 book a month. Haven't had any technical issues with the app and I've only had one book that skipped, which audible returned and refunded be for without any issues.

  90. MarkDT-avatar

    The home page is their store page. This wouldn't be so bad but when I have bad reception the app takes FOREVER to load the store when all I wanted was to listen to my books that I downloaded in my library No I dont want to shop right now. That like 2% of what I go on the app for. 98% is just to listen to MY books but no, I have to wait for the stupid store to load. And no, you cannot set your library to your home page. This is sooo broken to me. Please fix for 5 stars.

  91. Michael Spahn-avatar

    The app has made some improvements. I like the categorization of the books now, BUT I work in a place with very little to no reception so I download my books ahead of time. The problem is when I want to listen to a book at work, the app losses my previous listening position. I don't listen to the book on another platform nor do I read the book and use whispersync. The app just seems to forget my current reading position until reception is reestablished and even then it doesn't always remember.

  92. Curtis Sather-avatar

    EXCELLENT! You folks have done incredibly good job. The app is very useful and the readers do a very good job with the books that I have read. This excellent way to take in information if you're busy driving or something. It's also a very good source of education for some particular people who may not be able to read as well for whatever reason.

    The app is user friendly and I dont have any complaints with functionality. Some things can only be accessed by their website. I like to read a lot and feel that audio books should be priced lower as there isn't a physical copy. That said, you keep all your books even when unsubscribed. I would recommend this app.

  94. rainbow James-avatar

    I love it because I never have time to sit and read. I operate a cleaning company and love that while I'm in the office or out at a client's home I can listen to my books . Multitasking at its finest. And thank you to Molly Burk for introducing me to Audible it's been a game changer!

  95. J. S.-avatar

    Audiobooks are expensive and this app makes them a little cheaper if you get a membership. They give you 2 free audiobooks a month but they are usually awful. The reviews seem a little hard to trust since people almost always just give everything a 5 or 1 star review. A lot of the free books seem to be pushing audibles political views too which is annoying. The app works well though. I haven't encountered too many bugs in a while.

  96. Mitchell Munroe-avatar

    I used to get around the limited search function by copy/past of my search text then using Google. Well, some genius found a way to disable copy on Android. Presumably to keep us in the app. Bad show Audible. Keeping the review at 3 stars until this is fixed and the removed feature are returned. I'll continue to alternate my purchases between Audible and the alternatives. Trust has been lost.

  97. Julia Kitvaria Sarene-avatar

    I'm an avid audio "reader" and audible really misses some options. Like shaking the phone for resetting the sleep off timer. It's so annoying if you have to actually light up the phone, start the book again and reset the timer manually when you actually want to use it before sleeping. I HATE that the home screen is not my library, and it takes forever to load the "recommendations". Since the last update you can't hide finished titles anymore. Great fun if you have 500+ titles.

  98. Gallindor Darion-avatar

    I could say a lot of jargon about the users of the app. That's kind of a waste. Really, it's great that they have the credit system. Plus, with a book you're not a fan of our not particularly enjoying the performance of the reader, you can exchange a book you bought through the credits. That is also the cheaper option to pay for one.

  99. Ray Cooke-avatar

    Another upgrade that DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY. All versions since may 2020 are bug ridden and with lots of glitches. Why don't audible get it right before releasing. I can't listen to any of my books press play and it crashes. DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION. Wait until they fix it .Who knows when that will be.

    It's amazing! The selection of books are endless. You also have the option of retuning books that you can't into. My favourite time's are at bedtime, driving and cooking. It's relaxing. I only gave Audible 4 stars b/c their app needs improvement. For example, whenever I browse, I get book suggestions that I have already read.
