Hate new App front page

Audible app is definately in my top 5 apps I go for on a daily basis on my iPhone and iPad. First thing when I get in the car I select my latest book to listen to. When I'm at my desk I set my phone on it's dock and continue 'reading' while I work and the same goes when I'm cooking. I use this more than iTunes nowadays.
It isn't perfect - I don't download to my phone anymore because usually I get an error message after it's downloaded the first 5-10% of a book, and then just stops - nothing will get a download past the first 10% no matter how I tweak the settings. So now I just download to my Mac and drop it into iTunes, to load up when I sync next. It's a bit of a nuisance but....
This never used to happen, just since 2 or 3 revisions ago. I can live with the inconvenience though. What I couldn't live without now is the App itself - it's so convenient to listen to a book rather than have to give a book your whole attention as with a paper book or eBook - although I read plenty of them too.
My only real hate is the ‘dashboard’/home page the app starts on now. I’m not interested in whatever it has to say...all I want is my Library when I open the app.

One of my Top 3 Apps- BUT...

I love my Audible App & use it daily. There really is something incredibly special & satisfying about hearing your favourite stories brought to vivid life by a talented narrator. My job involves spending all day looking at a computer screen so my eyes struggle to cope with the added strain of reading on top of work- my audible app means I can still emerge myself in so many of the literary worlds I love.

My ONE complaint? Since the last 2-3 versions have been released, sometimes I can’t get newly purchased books to download. REALLY annoying. Most of the time (90-95%) I just wait a day or so & the problem fixes itself. Once or twice now I’ve had to delete the App, shut down my phone & then RE-install the App again once I’ve turned my iPhone back on. This seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of the most recent reviews- wish they would fix whatever bug it is, because otherwise this App is the best thing to happen to my ability to keep reading for enjoyment in a long, long time!
