Amazon's Audible app for audiobooks has had a resurgence on Windows Phone of late, but in recent days its Windows 8 counterpart has faired much worse with support for it coming to an end.

But, while the app is no longer supported and can't be downloaded from the Windows Store, it appears not to be all bad news. Word is that the app is being rebuilt to launch for Windows 10

The official Audible app for Windows Phone has been updated to version 9.0.1. No, we're not in April. This release is a fairly substantial update to the app by Amazon, bundling a bunch of improvements to enhance the audio book experience.

Yes, this does seem to be the previously discovered beta release merged into the official Store version.

Back in January, we reported that after 14 long months, Audible (owned by Amazon) finally has an update for their audiobook app in the works. The app is extremely popular, in particular for those whose daily grind requires much quiet time. However, problems with resuming and even loading some audio titles have given the app some negative reviews.

This site WPArea.de has not only found the beta, but they have noticed that instead of the beta being closed (as intimated by the company), it is open to all. Of course, this free download may not last long, so if you are an Audible user, you may want to grab the app until the official update comes along.

Audible has the distinction of being one of the most favored brands for audio books, the perfect compendium for daily commuters stuck in traffic. Their Windows Phone app is rather nice looking and for a little while the company seemed to show Microsoft some love.

Now, however, that app is one of a few major ones withering in the Windows Phone Store, having seen its last update 14 months ago back in November 2013. In response to a recent tweet question, the company now promises a new update is on the way.

Audible and Netflix both updated for Windows Phone

We love when apps get updated, especially big apps that are used daily by a lot of people. Audible and Netflix are two apps that we use often, both are great time killers whether you’re catching up with the latest bestselling novel or hit television series. Both also just received two updates on Windows Phone.

Audible, the popular audiobook service, has bumped its Windows Phone offering and has launched an exclusive offer for consumers. Should you download and use the apps available for either Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, create a new account and reside in the US, you'll be eligible for a free audiobook for trying out the service. Pretty neat, eh?

Looks like it’s a good day for Windows Phone 8 users. First they get an update for Kindle to fix loading issues and now Audible (which has had a few crashes too) is now patched in addition to getting some new features.

Yes, version 1.4 is now live in the Windows Phone Store and as far as we can tell, has fixed the stability issues. In addition, you can now do a doublewide Tile and even use voice commands. The voice command feature works by simply holding down the Start button to launch voice command and then saying “Audible…My Library” or “Audible…Play (insert book name)”...

GroupMe v3.5 looking good

Although there aren’t many new major apps to announce for Windows Phone yet this week, two big titles just received some updates and one has some major changes.

First up is Audible, one of the more requested apps that took a long time to get to Windows Phone. It has now hit version 1.3 as of today. Unfortunately that is about all we can tell you at this point as there was no accompanying changlog. That’s not the first time Audible has done such and update.

What's in version 1.2? Only the Shadow knows...

Although it has taken a very long time to get Audible on Windows Phone, the app has received two updates since its initial release just a few weeks ago. That’s some fast response time to what are presumably bug fixes and optimizations.

Version 1.2 just hit the Marketplace for Windows Phone with v1.1 happening sometime last week when it also popped up in the UK.

Unfortunately, the Audible folks don’t seem too keen on sharing release notes, so we’ll have to wing this one and just say “it got better, somehow”. We don’t use the app enough to figure out ourselves (we fall asleep to story narrations, we blame it on childhood) so we’ll rely on you to point out any new features or bug fixes.

Grab the free official Audible app for Windows Phone, now on mysterious version 1.2, here in the Marketplace. Thanks,  James M., for the heads up

Update: Reader Jack let us know that the app was also made available in Germany last week and this latest update fixes some translations issues for their language.
