The app I use the most on my phone is Audible.Com’s Audible app. I used this app on iPhone since the app was first released. I don’t know if it’s a different team completely building the Windows Phone app but the differences are night and day. iPhone version was very well done from day one. Windows Phone version is awful. I know it’s not Microsoft’s fault for it but because of this combination I will definitalty go back to an iPhone. I’ve wanted to throw my phone out the car windows many times because of the frustration the Audible app gives me on my Windows Lumina 1020 Phone.
Just some of the issues:
Not remembering volume between headset/speaker = That’s not Audible though that’s the OS. Still frustrating.
If you get a text while your listening to an audio book and get interrupted Audible app goes back to the last time it was tombstoned, at least I think that’s when. Basically it doesn’t re-play from where you were interrupted. If this happens a few times in a row I want to stomp on my phone as each time I have to manually fast forward.
Plugging in a headset sometimes sends back chapters and I have to manually fast forward to where I was.
Sometimes I just go to Home and go back to app and it goes back chapters again. I lose my place.
Sometimes I hit play/pause and it doesn’t do anything. It esp screws up with bluetooth quite often. to the point I’ve had to restart my phone just to get the thing to work again.
Audible app on windows phone has awful reviews because the app sucks but you have no choice. The version on iPhone is perfect.
So if you are an avid mobile Audible listener? Don’t get a Windows Phone. Stick with an iPone.
