Audiobook Discussions: The Audible App

IMG_20161207_184007_065000 (1)

I have been doing a lot of audiobook listening lately and I attended a recent blogger webinar about audiobook reviewing which got me thinking more and more about audiobooks.  So I wanted to know more of what you think about them!  From there, Audiobook Discussions has been born!

So today I want to talk about the Audible app.  Do you use Audible?  Are you aware of some of the cool features of the app?  What do you like/dislike?  What can you teach me about the app!?


I use Audible a lot!  I think I have somewhere around 90 books on there.  I use it the most of all my listening options because I find it the most user friendly – download and play! That’s it!  You can even access your wishlist right from the app.  Makes it pretty simple I think.  And you can sync between listening on the app or online – I do all my listening from the app, but that’s cool in case you don’t have access to your phone or something.  And the best thing in my opinion is I can download the audiobook when on my home wifi and then don’t have to worry about streaming or using data when listening.  So I can listen at work or the car.  

Did you know there are badges you can earn based on different listening activities?  I know some of them are buggy, but I’m one of those “collect them all” sorts of people so I try to do what I can to earn them for my own personal satisfaction.  And there are three tiers of them too – something like regular, silver, and gold (depending on if you have Android or iOS they are labeled differently) – you can see how I have some of each level based on the ring around the badge color.


There are also some other cool stats that you can check, like number of hours listened to over the single day, month, year, all time. 


I would love to hear about your experiences with Audible and what parts of the app you love or hate!

  1. I love the audible app! Besides the ease of use, I love Prime channels that have free books and audible series to listen to. I just recently discovered this as an Amazon Prime member!

    1. Ooh I don't know anything about these Prime Channels, I will have to check it out! I'm always finding new benefits of Prime!
