  • It's also considered the largest audiobooks library, so you can expect to find almost any book that has an audio version on there
  • However, that has changed, and I decided to give Audible a try, especially considering the fact that they offer you a free trial, so you don't even have to pay for your first month on there
  • A free trial gives you one credit, which you can use to buy any book you like, no matter what the price is
  • The other thing is that unlike some other audiobooks services, Audible offers you a free app, which is incredibly convenient and allows you to use Audible anytime, anywhere and even offline, as long as your smartphone is with you
  • It's 10 out of 10 and I think there's no reason not to love it

    Audible has been around for quite a while and all the bloggers and all the youtubers have been talking about how great it is. For those who for some reason haven’t heard of Audible or just don’t really know what it is, Audible is a seller and producer of spoken audio entertainment, including audiobooks, radio, podcasts and audio versions of magazines and newspapers. It’s also considered the largest audiobooks library, so you can expect to find almost any book that has an audio version on there.

  • At first, I was a little skeptical about this whole thing, because the Audible has become popular in no time. I also wasn’t into audiobooks and podcasts until a few months ago, so I had no interest for Audible. However, that has changed, and I decided to give Audible a try, especially considering the fact that they offer you a free trial, so you don’t even have to pay for your first month on there. A free trial gives you one credit, which you can use to buy any book you like, no matter what the price is. The other thing is that unlike some other audiobooks services, Audible offers you a free app, which is incredibly convenient and allows you to use Audible anytime, anywhere and even offline, as long as your smartphone is with you. Audible’s books come in a specific format, so not all the devices can play it. I think there’s no problem with playing Audible books on IOS and Android, but it might be more complicated with other operating systems.

  • Audible app (for listening to Audible audiobooks)
  • You can buy audiobooks from Audible.com just like you’d buy them from a regular website and you can get a membership for $15 a month and have one credit, which allows you to get any book you like and 30% discount for other audiobooks. You can see all the benefits of Audible membership in the picture I put here, but it all sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

  • Audible app (for listening to Audible audiobooks)
  • I know that there are ways to get the Audiobooks for free, but the variety of those is very limited and it’s a lot of trouble to download them to an IPhone. It’s just so much easier when you can buy the book and then download it to your phone immediately. I’m in love with Audible app and I think that it might be the best app I’ve ever used. I’m listening to Harry Potter books now and it can’t be any more convenient than it already is.

  • In the app, you can choose the speed at what the book is narrated to you, you can set the sleep timer and easily go from one chapter to another. When you download a one-piece audiobook from somewhere, you can’t really do that, same when you buy a book, which comes in tunes (chapters) and all those tunes get mixed up on your phone. On Audible everything is already sorted out for your convenience. They also offer books in different languages, however, the selection of English books is still the biggest among all.

  • Audible app (for listening to Audible audiobooks)
  • You can’t buy books from the Audible app, but you can buy them from your phone, if you open the website in the browser. You can choose, if you want to download the book to your phone or store it in the Cloud. However, you only can listen to the books in an offline mode, if they are actually on your phone (obviously). That’s very convenient when you travel. By the way, you get to keep all the books you purchased with money or Audible credits, even if you cancel the membership.

  • Audible app (for listening to Audible audiobooks)
  • Even though you can’t purchase a book in the app, you can browse and search for the books and listen to samples. I actually love that sampling option, because sometimes I love the book, but hate the voice or the manner of speaking of the narrator.

  • Audible app (for listening to Audible audiobooks)
  • Audible also offers you all kinds of podcasts, including their original ones. You can listen to the audio versions of newspapers, like The New York Times or The Washington Post. You can listen to educating, entertaining and all other kinds of podcasts you like, the access to them is free and unlimited, if you are a member or if you have Amazon Prime.

    Overall, Audible.com is the greatest audiobooks and podcasts website I’ve ever found with an extremely convenient app. Maybe there are cheaper options out there, but I don’t even want to look for them, because I’m THAT happy with Audible. It’s 10 out of 10 and I think there’s no reason not to love it.
