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
One Windows Central reader received this message from the Audible UK team:
It seems not a week passes of late where we're not hearing of abandoned support for either Windows or Windows Phone. It would have been great if Amazon had kept this app running, but it obviously has its reasons for shutting it down. The silver lining is that it appears to be only a temporary thing, and hopefully later this year we'll have a shiny new app for Windows 10 pumping stories into our ears.
If you've got a Windows Phone, though, you can still use that to get your offline fix on the go. It just recently got updated, again, so for now things are still firing on all cylinders in that camp. Grab the Windows Phone version from the store link below.
Thanks Andrew for the tip!
