Good App and straight forward business model
I recently switched back to Audiobooks from another similar service/app. The other one was cheaper, but it turns out you get what you pay for. Other service randomly denied the books I was right in the middle of and took a few days to fix the issue that came with an update. The other part that really drove me away was I had banked up a few credits, as I listen to about 1 book in a little over a month, I had the service stop charging me so I could catch up. They cut off my whole service in the process. I had to keep my service charging me to finish the book I was in the middle of and then leave a credit behind when I left their service. Audiobooks has never cut me off mid book. Their business model views credits you’ve purchased as yours and honors their use regardless of whether you commit to remaining a customer. I will gladly pay the extra few dollars a month for that level of service to finish the series I’m halfway through, The Sword of Truth (I’m up to Chainfire now).
Good experience so far
I’ve just started using this app, but it seems to be everything you need and nothing you don’t. Not only does it have a good selection of books, plus an additional VIP book per month, the app function itself is ideal. It’s got a sleep timer, bookmarks for when you want to go back to something that really impacted you, plus the ability to change the speed which I usually bump up to 1.5 when I listen to audiobooks now. It helps me get so much more reading in, and you don’t sacrifice quality in the process. I also LOVE that it shows where you are in the book as a whole (like 1:55 of 7:42) but it gives you different tracks within that too! It’s really nice to get to see it broken down in little chunks in addition to your total progress. I first listened to the free VIP book “Nudge” and it was surprisingly good! Something I wouldn’t have normally picked to read but thought “why not” and I’m glad I did. We’ll see how things continue to go, but so far I think it’s a good service and a well functioning app.
Audiobooks so far is the best!
I don’t have a ton to say just yet, as I am new to audiobooks. But I used to have audible for couple years and it was ok but audiobooks offers so much more especially with the use of their app. I really like the features much better for instance just to name a couple the sleep timer since I listen every night which last I checked audible didn’t have since I fall asleep during listening it makes it much easier to find where I left off instead of continuing to play only to wake up to see the book is finished and have to try and remember where I left off. Also like the ease of fast forwarding and track list. I decided recently to try and find audio app that better suited me so I decided to give audiobooks also another one a try to see if I liked them better or if I should just go back to my old subscription. And as of right now I’m definitely leaning towards audiobooks. I definitely like it best of the three I have tried.
