Reading books can be a hobby or passion or just plain fun. if you love thrillers, you can’t have the same fun watching them as you will get reading them. It’s because when you’re reading a thriller novel, the characters are half drawn by the author and the rest is your own imagination. So the same villain can be cast in many different shapes and forms as per your liking and a simple fist fight can be thought of as a battle of the gods. But there are pros and cons of both. A story which takes 2 hours for a movie to sum up may take days or even weeks to complete in a novel. Unless you’re retired, you don’t have that much time. Moreover, watching a movie is much better than reading a book late night in dim light when your wife is angry on you. We need a middle solution. Don’t you think?
So if you think the same then here we have Audible which is a Windows Phone app that has been developed by Audible. The app is compatible with all the devices running Windows Phone 7.5 or any later version of the OS.
Audible is a very simple to use audio book store. Now, you don’t have to read books but you can listen to them. Yes, audible has a huge collection of all the Audiobooks available in the market and you can download them to your device and keep listening to them. It’s just like reading a book but now you can read it with your eyes closed. When you’re travelling or just relaxing for some time, just plug in the earphones and let the Audible play some good stories of your liking to you. Don’t worry to restart the book if you left it in middle. Audible will start it from the same page you left off. You can even set the narrating speed.
The interface of this app makes sure you get to know about all the latest Audiobooks that have been released. There are other categories of best sellers or the popular ones that are trending in the store. But if you have a liking for some particular genre such as romance or thriller, start exploring it more and more. Once you find what you’re looking for, download it and then you can listen to it anytime. They’re all added to your personal collection.
The app has some badges for the regular listeners. The more you listen, the more badges you collect. So if you found something really good and it’s on repeat for several days, you’re eligible for a badge. There is also a measure of your listening hours and these are divided in four levels. You start as an amateur and master is the level everybody aspires to touch someday.
So overall, Audible is a great app to explore in the Windows Marketplace and it’s already very popular. It’s available for free. So make sure you check it out today!
