Some issues but overall worth the price

I love audible, it’s easily my favorite app and really the only reason I use my phone for anything other than communication. The price is more than reasonable, for $15 you get access to a lot of really solid books, plus a credit to use on any book you want, no matter the price. Depending on their age and popularity, some books can be upwards of $30 by themselves, so that’s a pretty sweet deal. Credits carry over and, as long as you keep your membership, they will not expire (if you cancel, be sure to use any left over credits before you do).
My only advice is to check the book’s price before you use a credit on it. As I said before, a credit is good for any price book, but that also goes for inexpensive books. They don’t make it easy to see the actual cost, I have to use my phone’s browser because they don’t show you within the app, but there have been books I want that are only $2-3, which would be a total waste of a credit, so I just buy them with my credit card.
The only con for me would be (as of December 2022, at least) is the poor compatibility with iOS, you can’t use Siri for any commands other than rewind/play/pause/forward. Since I listen with my AirPods most of the time, it would be nice, but I guess I understand with the whole Alexa vs. Siri war.

Kudos to the developers

I’m back to loving the app! My original negative review is below. I got a response from Audible developers who instructed me on how to remove the Alexa button. It was actually very simple, but I couldn’t figure out how before, and had even contacted Audible Help (before I wrote the review) but the rep said Alexa couldn’t be removed. So I’m very happy again with this app. And I’d like the Alexa button if it were in a different location in car mode. Here’s my original review:

The new Alexa button is annoying, and frankly, a little dangerous. I used to be able to hit the "rewind" and "bookmark" buttons in car mode without looking down at my screen while driving. Now I have to look at the screen to hit those buttons because otherwise I accidentally hit that HUGE Alexa button at the bottom of the screen. (Which interrupts my book.) Super frustrating. Sure, I could use the Alexa button instead, but it takes longer to hit the button and say "rewind 10 seconds" than just hitting the rewind button like I used to be able to easily do. The Alexa button isn't a bad idea, but why couldn't they have put it somewhere else, and not make it so big? This has ruined the app for me. I sure hope they fix this terrible design in future updates. I’ll gladly change my 2 star rating to a 4 or 5 if they do.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! We are collecting input from users and may experiment with different size and placement in the future. In the meantime, you can hide the Alexa button from Settings > Alexa. Also, If you still have Alexa enabled, you can always just say "Alexa, go back 10 seconds" without tapping the screen at all.
