Audible for Windows Phone now live in the UK Marketplace

With the announcement of Audible for Windows Phone being released last week, many of our UK readers were asking for the same availability which was absent from the UK Marketplace. Windows Phone Central reader Mark got in touch with the Audible team for information on a possible app for those who reside in the UK, and we have positive details to relay.

According to a representative from the company, the app is set to be available in the Marketplace within the next day, but we've now seen it available for download (via direct link) in the UK. Find an excerpt of the email response below:

"I am pleased to announce that we have just been informed that the UK version of the app on the Windows platform has launched today, and will be available in the marketplace as of tomorrow."

You can download Audible from the Marketplace for free using the direct link or QR Code.

Thanks, Mark, for the heads up!

  • Can't get passed signup screen anyone else have this problem.
  • Also available in Austria now! :=) nice

  • Not showing up. It seems the only way I can get lots of these apps is because companies like wpcentral get direct links from somewhere.
  • you can circumnavigate the sign up bug:
    go to audible via the browser
    make sure it is not the mobile page
    sign up
    go back to the app
    now it should work fine (it did for me)
