Avoid the "newer" versions they get worse as they try to tangle you int buying more books

The first version of this app was rather nice. It was not perfect, but had an original, reasonable user interface and a few functions such as a sleep timer that Apple ought to copy. It had its quirks such as: if you want to completely remove a book from your device, you must blow away your whole library and then re-download all your books except the one(s) you do not want on your device. They have a couple of cute euphemisms for this, but reloading 30 or so books takes hours. Unfortunately, when I got a little notice that a "new" version was now ready, I updated on one of my devices. As others have reported, the changes make the app seriously bad, not better. I am being carefully to not update my other devices. The new interface is cluttered with pictures of covers of audio books and a as others have reported, important features have been removed, crippled or otherwise rendered useless. One frequently requested desirable function that has been missing is the ability to buy new books directly from the app. The new version did not solve that problem. You still have to go to your browser to browse or buy additional books, then have the audible app import the purchased files. I wish I could think of something nice to say, but I honestly can not. Although I can think of a new missing feature ... It now needs a nice little button that lets you revert to an earlier version.

SPARE by Prince Harry

Thank you Prince Harry for pouring and sharing your soul, allowing us to truly hear the truth, the real truth, facts, from the “horses mouth”. I am deeply sorry for all of the sorrows , disappointments and those who were disloyal to you, from your own family! I truly admire your courage, your service (universal), the good you have been able to do around the world. I am happy you found your soulmate and that you have a beautiful family of four. I despise those who have bullied (your family and tabloids), dehumanized Meghan, she does not deserve such a treatment; I “know her” from suits, followed her philanthropic work, loved her Tig, her blog… she is a beautiful soul and woman, you two are lucky to have each other. Congratulations on an amazing book and audio, I loved hearing your voice, it felt as if you were talking to me. Many of my friends who have read your book say the same, your narration gives the book so much light and life. As I finished your book tonight, during my evening walk, once again you have proved that you have always been right… I say this because in the last two days, many revelations have been learned from your suing the tabloids. I want you yo know that your book have opened many peoples eyes. I want you to know that you and your little family is LOVED around the world! Carry on Prince Harry, we are rooting for you four!
