If you have tried modern-day audiobooks (the ones available for streaming or downloading, opposite to CDs), and realized you might easily become a heavy user, you should try the Audible app for iPad and iPhone.
Audible platform is powered by Amazon. It’s the largest and most advanced audiobook service in the world. It offers the widest selection of audiobook titles, including the ones published exclusively for the platform.
But audiobooks are not the only thing to digest on Audible. You can find here original audio shows or short-form narratives. For instance, you can hear A-class celebrities narrating their favorite stories.
Audible lets you choose the preferred way of getting the content. You can either buy audiobooks the traditional way (one by one) or get them via one of Audible subscriptions:
- Audible Plus
- Audible Premium Plus
A good thing about subscriptions is that you can download and enjoy audiobooks any time you want without the need to switch to a browser to complete the purchase.
Once you decide to give Audible a try, you can instantly access on your iOS Audible app everything you downloaded for free or bought.
The app is free and ad-free, and syncs audiobooks in your account between all connected devices. You can listen to audiobooks even if you are offline.
The player offers premium-quality audio without interruptions, enables you to adjust the narration speed, and lets you quickly move forward or backward.
