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

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.

Updating review for spring 2015 app update. This has gone from unusable to not bad. The volume gets stuck sometimes, and it could be easier to get to the next book in a series, but those are the only complaints I have so far.
