Audible for Windows 8 is gone, but it's not all bad news

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.

Audible update for Windows Phone adds new variable narration speed feature

Latest Audible update for Windows Phone provides you with personalized recommendations

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.


Audible beta update for Windows Phone is open to all to download

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.


After 14 months, Audible says an update for its Windows Phone app is in the 'pipeline'

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 gets updated for Windows Phone 8 with Voice Commands

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 for Windows Phone gets a redesign and Audible gets updated too

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.


Audible for Windows Phone gets second update but remains a mystery

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.
