Works OK on my WP8.1. This is the best version so far. Keep up the good work and keep the updates coming 😊. I'm still having trouble with smooth playback. The playback will occasionally stumble. I have changed the setting to not allow the phone to sleep while downloading, but the problem continues.

The latest version looks and works great. Once in a while audio files are corrupted during download, but re-downloading them or reinstalling the app usually fixes the issue. This is a minor issue comparing with problems in previous versions. Thank you audible team for constantly improving the app!

A few problems: * Playback speed is hard to set precisely. It would help it were a vertical slider because you have more pixels to work with, so it wouldn't be so sensitive. Since only a few discrete settings are available anyway, an array of buttons is another option * Download seems to stop when the screen turns off

I really enjoy this app. It's so relaxing to be read to. I can also do other things while listening like playing a game ,or the dishes etc.

Pretty good app. Options and settings are easy to adjust to your liking. Live tile is a bit lackluster.

The app does all the basics; you can listen, shop, download, and mark as finished. I wish there were better controls on the phone lock screen. Pause and play is fine, but if I want to jump back 30 seconds I need to unlock my phone. There is no support for household shared libraries. Amazon and Audible need to pay attention to the Windows Phone platform :P

7/22/15 Update: From 1 to 5 stars in 3 months! Now a first rate app! Just make sure to set playback to jump 5 seconds in settings to make it match all other wp apps. 6/20/15 Update: Back to 4 stars. Playback speed, position remembering, and some native control issues fixed. Nice job! Now if only the next/last native buttons would function like normal instead of next / prev chapter.

Easy to use. I like being able to set the speed so I can listen to the books quickly.

The last update has made the app much more stable and usable. I still prefer the app on my kindle fire, android, or ios devices but it seems less like the red-headed step child now.

Much improved over earlier versions that didn't have good playback speed adjustment. Easy navigation.
