Audible may/may not be on the roadmap for WP7

While we know many of you love using Audible whenever you can, support from them has been....lacking to say the least. Even their interface with Kinoma is dun broke, despite Kinoma's best effort to work with/around them.

Lately, Paul Thurrott has been keeping the flame going, with both hopes of support for the Zune HD (unlikely, evidently supported, indirectly) and Windows Phone 7 (more likely). Audible dropped a possible hint in a conversation with a listener that a WP7 app would be ready "within the month", but alas, it appears they may have been talking about WM6.x:

Thank you very much for contacting Audible.com about the upcoming Windows 7 Phone. As of right now, there is no information regarding the release of this application for the Windows 7 Phone. However, the version will eventually be supported once we have resolved the current issues with the Audible Air Application for 6.0 and 6.5. This being said, there is no estimated time frame or release date for this device.

Oh Audible, we want to love you but seriously...you need to get your act together on this already :-/ Well, at least their may be hope for you Windows Mobile users who will be sticking with the platform for a bit. Silver lining?

It sounds like they have problems getting their apps to work right, I think we'll get a WP7 app but it'll be delayed probably.

To get an Audible book on the Zune HD, you first acquire it from their website..then using the Audible Manager software you load it onto the device..
Prior to the Audible app for iOS this was the same way you got Audible books onto those devices(except you could use iTunes)...

The ZuneHD only has the ability to download and stream music from the device itself..
