Now you can enjoy audiobooks purchased directly from your favorite authors. Authors Direct gives you everything you need to listen to those audiobooks, and nothing more. No ads, no upselling promoted content, and no storefront. Nothing between you and your audiobook. Just a great experience for listening to audiobooks you've already purchased from a participating author.
Enjoy great features like offline listening and fine-grained speed control, built by a team of audiobook-lovers who listen every day. Or, listen while you fold laundry by casting to a Chromecast or Google Home device.
With Authors Direct, authors can make 5–10× more in royalties, with no extra cost to you. Somehow, this makes the same audiobooks sound a little sweeter.

Ratings and Reviews
It works like a charm, audiobooks are available instantly after purchasing.
Bare bones app with problems
This app lacks some of the bells and whistles common in audiobook players such as lapsed and remaining times for the entire book.
But it has a serious problem with the skip back function. It will not bridge chapters. That is, the skip back button will not skip back into the previous chapter.
The app also needs to implement some important Voiceover gestures such as the magic tap (2-finger double tap) to toggle play/pause and a gesture to skip back and forward.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
