Audible app now available for iOS

From the product page:, the Internet’s premier provider of digital audiobooks and more, is now available on your iPhone and iPod Touch! This free app features the most comprehensive audiobook experience ever, including Wi-Fi delivery of your library, multitasking (iOS 4 and compatible device required), detailed listening stats, and more.

You don't have to have an Audible account in order to try the app. (I like that.) I've tried the app, and it's a lot nicer to use than the Overdrive Media Console.

Unfortunately, downloads take a long time and the user has to make sure the app stays open. Both of the excerpts I tried ended up with corrupted files because the downloads were interrupted.

I'd say wait for a later version.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
