    Audible Book Reader

    Anybody know of or in the process of working on an app for audible books? Especially books from audible.com. I've reached out to them but I get a generic response from them.

    Audible's app development is awful. Their blackberry app is terribly slow and buggy. Don't count on them having anything anytime soon.
    I use soundtaxi to convert the files to mp3, and astro player to listen on my android phone. astro plater had bookmarking capabilities, androids media player does not.

    What does it do?

    And these woot icons make no sense, which stands for We Owned the Other Team (gaming term)

    Which only 2% of people know lol :)

    Corinacakes, I can't get any of that to work. Any other clues on how to join the beta. BTW, how do you like the app so far?

    Awesome Corinacakes... I am downloading my first direct book download now, what a time saver if we don't have to convert through sound taxi any longer.

    It was too big to upload via DF. Here's the link to 4shared. Don't forget to change the file from .zip to .apk.

    http://www.4shared.com/file/0TJjOTVv/AudibleAndroidB3.html

    I'm having terrible troubles with this. I open it..log in...it gets my library then i can start a dl and it just closes. Then when i reopen the app it just opens then immediately closes. Let me know if this happens to anyone else.

    darn :icon_evil: back to soundtaxi/ambling book player for now i guess

    change .zip to .apk
    then put it on your droid sd card
    set droid to take apps from unknown sources (settings-applications)
    then using file manager of some sort i use Androzip find that file click on it to install and boom you have it

    Rock on! Works great so far, the app saw my entire library and I'm currently downloading one of my books. I've been waiting for this app ever since I got my Droid!

    I have an Ipod nano 3G that I use exclusively for audiobooks. I listen to a book when I take my walks, wash or detail my cars, when driving alone, or when doing any task that it mostly routine.

    This way I get to read (using the term loosely)many more books that I wouldn't have time to read if I had to sit down with the hard copies.
