Audiobooks 3.0 is characterized by its redesigned user interface, which is a huge improvement on the app’s previous look and feel. Most importantly, the UI overhaul makes listening to books easier and finding recommendations faster.
The new design also includes a couple of new gestures applicable to the Your Books screen. On said screen, you can swipe to the right to manage your downloads or to the left to share the audiobooks you’re listening to on Facebook and Twitter.
Last March, the app received its 2.0 update, which brought variable narration speed controls and advanced player functions for sleep timer control and social media sharing. Also, Audiobooks 2.0 added the ability for non-members to access over a hundred free audiobooks.
If you’d like to gain access to Audiobooks’ content other than its free offerings, you can opt to be a member by availing of Audiobooks’ unlimited plan. Priced at $29.99 a month, this plan unlocks the app’s premium features, including the ability to stream and download an unlimited number of audiobooks.
