Disappointed in Audible.com

by , Jul 9, 2012 Rated a Very Helpful Review
I have been an Audible member for about 10 years.  In the last couple of years, I have become extremely disappointed with Audible.  I am a premium member, meaning I pay around $229 for 24 credits at a time.  That is a great price, except ...

Used to be awful, now a place I would recommend.

by , Jul 6, 2012 Rated a Helpful Review
A couple years ago this place had some seriously shady practices. Since Amazon took them over they have made a complete turn around. The credits are a great deal and there are frequent sales. The selection is spectacular; a lot of varieties of programs ...

HIGHLY UNETHICAL and DECEPTIVE! BEWARE!

by , Apr 11, 2012 Rated a Helpful Review
I joined audible.com to get a discount on an iPod. As it turned out I didn't use the discount, so after 3months of paying for the membership I canceled it. During that time I had shelled out $45 and had earned three "credits" towards the purchase of ...

Audible.com is a big hassle.

This site is terrible. Their files do not work on enough devices and the search is not user friendly. I could waste a lot of time and money burning a 10+ hour audio book to cd just to burn it back to my computer just to transfer it to my Nook, but that's ...

Not an iTunes Alternative

by , Dec 16, 2010 Rated a Very Helpful Review
I like the flexibility of playing music/video on multiple devices without having to register the device (or limiting the registrations I'm allowed).  So i'm a big fan of Amazon.com's MP3 downloads and just about anything outside of iTunes.  I ...

by , Oct 20, 2010 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Overall I think Audible is a great service if you enjoy reading, but don't have time to pick up a book. I used to drive 4 hours to visit a friend and during those long trips, I'd always bring an audiobook along to keep me entertained. I've also listened ...

Used to be adequately cheap but now double-charging and bother not worth savings

by , Sep 11, 2010 Rated a Very Helpful Review
I have purchased 74 books from Audible over the past 5 years and recently their service has degraded too far.  Although they allow "unlimited" burning of CDs for my own use, they cripple that pledge by requiring use of a software that allows only 1 ...

Downloading Books from Audible takes forever, oh well.

by , Mar 5, 2010 Rated a Helpful Review
 Before you can fully appreciate the Audible experience there are a few phrases to familiarize yourself with. Don't worry about memorizing them all at once. A bit of repetition, of which you will have ample opportunity, and you will have perfect ...

The WORST website- ever.

by , Oct 1, 2009 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Audible's site is the worst web site ever created- period. Each click takes no less than a minute to render. A minute. Clicking more than one link from a page (so they show up in different tabs) causes the site to "time out". Having a large collection of ...

Misleading ads are a big deterrent

Audible provides a useful service to users of audio books. Unfortunately, their deceptive advertising practices place them in a highly suspect category in my mind. The first example of this is a web site I found via a search engine that identified itself ...
