Love audio books!!

I love audio books and have an Audible account. However, my Fire is not always convenient for listening to them. This Windows app makes my Audible books available on my laptop. The app is easy to use. So now I have the best of both worlds: (a) listen on my Fire, and (2) listen on my laptop. (** Yes, I am a Click and Clack fan. **)

Terrible App - No volume control

This app has no volume controls - the volume control is there, but the volume remains the same whether it's at 100%, 0%, or anywhere in between. It doesn't show up in the Volume Mixer, either, so I can't even control the volume there. The app looks like it's a straight port from a mobile device, with no ability to resize the main part of the window. No matter what size the window is, the central part remains the same size. This makes it really frustrating to try and navigate when you have as many audiobooks as I do. The volume control, however, is my main complaint. This makes the app useless to me. I often have other things going on, and I'd like the audiobook to be background sound, not the main sound source when I've got my headphones on.

Much better ap

I really appreciate the 30 seconds FORWARD function. I often switch between devices and this helps me find my place and makes other kinds of searching better. Also this app does allow me to sync with my Kindle Fire as well. I've had problems with both of these issues when using Amazon Cloud to listen on my laptop.

Great App

Been an Audible Sub for years and this app has made the experience all the more enjoyable. All your titles are listed, the streaming works great so you don't have to download if you choose not to, the layout is simple and the look is great - a sleek black which doesn't blind you at night. This app is a huge improvement over the previous one. I think it's worth the Free cost for sure. If you're an Audible Sub and don't have this app then get it, if you aren't a Sub and enjoy audiobooks then what are you waiting for? It's a great service!

New app issues - no more

I have to say the update to fix the play back issue was fast. The next morning when i opened the app all was working as tje app updated over night. Now this is a 5 star app Below was the original post now outdated Prior to the latest release of this app I was able to listen when the phone locked itself or when I switched apps now it stops. Very annoying to have to unlock my phone every 5 min to listen to a book. Once they fix this I will change my rating to 5 stars

Great app

I love the many options for changing the volume & the narrator speed - You won't find this option on many other devices that support Audible! I also like the optional desktop views!
