I am a big audiobook listener. I'm even an audible subscriber. I find the magazine nice to go through, but the app frustrates me. The interface is a bit clunky, and when I tap a web link and come back to the book it starts me off on page 1. The UI doesn't feel native, and some areas of the layout feel a it rough around the edges. I hope they eventually improve it! I WANT to love it, but I just can't yet.
As an avid Audible.com member, I was pleased to find this app. It's got about 25 pages of content focusing on audiobooks and their narrators. I like how you can tap on a book to hear a sample and interactive links. That said, it is quit buggy on my iPad2. Some files don't play and the orientation takes some fiddling with to get it to full screen. Would like to see customer rankings and special discount offers for audible members. But, it's a good way to discover new audiobooks.
Worst app ever!!!!!!
