TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Audiobooks.com, the only audio books service that gives customers unlimited access to downloadable content for just $24.95 per month, today announced that free Apple and Android apps are now available to Audiobooks.com members. Customers can now download or stream audio books that they can enjoy anytime, anywhere on their mobile devices with a free app at Apple's App Store for iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads or at Google Play for Android devices.
Members who want to enjoy audio books on the go can download up to two audio books at a time on their mobile device. The new apps are designed to give members maximum flexibility, providing custom settings so users can automatically stream or download books via wi-fi or cellular networks and save books to their personal reading list so they'll always have an audio book to enjoy. The Audiobooks.com library contains 10,000-plus best sellers and new releases, including popular titles like The Hunger Games trilogy, and the library is constantly adding new titles.
"Audiobooks.com is committed to providing members with access to unlimited audio books instantly, anywhere," said Ian Small, General Manager of Audiobooks.com. "Members can use the apps to download audio books and listen to them wherever they are with their mobile devices."
One unique Audiobooks.com innovation is an automatic bookmarking feature that ensures users never lose their place; users can always pick up wherever they left off – across all devices. Always responsive to customer needs, Audiobooks.com has also added a sleep timer to meet member demand. This allows users to set a time when they want to enjoy an audio book after they turn in for the night and ensure that the audio book won't continue playing indefinitely if they fall asleep.
Unlike competitor audio book apps, the Audiobooks.com apps for Apple and Android products enable both downloads and streaming content, and members have access to all the audio books they want for just $24.95 per month: There are no restrictions on the number of audio books users can download or stream.
Another unique Audiobooks.com feature is the apps' integration with user device native operating system functionality, which gives Audiobooks.com apps the ability to automatically pause listening when the user receives a phone call. The apps let users browse and play book previews without logging in, and the apps are designed to optimize 3G/cellular usage.
Audiobooks.com members can download the apps for free now at the Apple App Store or Google Play and start downloading their favorite audio books to take with them wherever they go. To learn more about Audiobooks.com, please visit www.audiobooks.com.
