AudiobooksNow is an audiobook service that allows you to download and listen to high-quality audiobooks. AudiobooksNow hosts thousands of books transformed into audio format. The app is available for both Android and iPhone users and can be downloaded for free via the App Store and Google Play.
Upon opening the app you’ll be greeted by a few pre-defined categories such as Best Sellers, New Releases, Fiction & Non-Fiction, Specials and Recommendations. These can be filtered and sorted by popularity, price, release date, rating and more. Once you find a book of interest you’re offered brief description and bio, user rating, and listen to a sample. The audio recording is of high quality. If you would like to purchase it, there are options to buy it at discounted pricing. Some audiobooks offer the unabridged (long format) and abridged (short format) books.
Once you decide to purchase, you’ll need to create an account and enter credit card information, however. The service offers a 30-day free trial before monthly subscription and your first book price is halved. Once an audiobook is purchased the book player is opened. This shows a list of tracks which download individually (and in the background) until the entire book is downloaded. From the player, you can start and stop audio, skip back or forward 30 seconds, plus rate the book. I like the fact that you can play audio in the background while performing other tasks on your device. I also value that you can listen on multiple devices and pick up where you left off.
AudiobooksNow has thousands of best sellers & new releases to listen to in high quality. You can listen across multiple devices and multi-task with audio playing in the background. There’s a free trial to get you started though every book has a cost with options for half discounts with the subscription. If you’re seeking a solid audiobook app for your Android phone or tablet then give AudiobooksNow a try!
