Audible goes live on the Windows Phone Marketplace
We heard mention of the Audible.com (opens in new tab) Windows Phone app yesterday at the Windows Phone Summit and today, the Audible.com app launched. The free app taps into Audible's audiobook library of more than 100,000 titles and delivers them to your Windows Phone.
If you haven't signed up for an Audible.com account, the Windows Phone app includes eight excerpts from various authors to let you try things out. There are listening achievements, Facebook and Twitter integration to let you share with friends what you are reading...err..listening to, and the app supports Audible.com, Audible.uk and Audible.de.
Audible for Windows Phone is a free app and you can grab it here (opens in new tab) at the Windows Phone Marketplace. We'll take Audible out for a test drive over the next day or two and get a review on the site shortly.
Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

BUT Andoird since OS.1.x
And now that I've got it (on my Focus) it's hiccuping on the download. It won't get more than 2 or 3 MB at a time, and then it stalls. It looks like I can pause it and then resume and it gets a few more MB each time. :(
This Audible app is the WP7.x version.
Now I need something else to complain about.
I still believe that there will plenty of top tier apps forthcoming for WP 7.5 devices despite what the naysayers say.
The big boys will be puming out 2 versions of their apps were it makes sense.
Now to get over my spite at Audible for ignoring the platform for so long...
vielen Dank für Ihr Schreiben an Audible. Bei uns wird die App voraussichtlich Ende der nächsten Woche erscheinen.Wir sind gerade dabei die App für den europäischen Markt zu lokalisieren und die letzten Übersetzungsfehler zu beseitigen. Ein wenig Geduld brauchen Sie noch:) Ich wünsche Ihnen einen schönen Wochenausklang. Herzliche Grüße Nils Tannhäuser
next week in the end in Germany
What's the reason behind not releasing it everywhere?
It's not like they have to translate the UI from American.
I like Audible but they need to quit acting like they're not bothered.
Come on Audible.CO.UK!
Show us you value your members!

Never thought of that this can be a reality. Iam using beautiful Lumis 710
