    Takes minimum 5 minutes (sic!) to resume after stopping, during which time it is completely unresponsive, no sync with desktop app, audible manager seems to be a completely separate (and incompatible) piece of software, so no option of adding files from other sources, heavily overpriced (audiobooks) vs iTunes, even with membership... Keep working guys, you're nowhere near competition yet. Second star for UI only.

    Keeps locking up, making the playing of books almost impossible. Total rubbish as it presently stands.

    A great service but a disastrous app. Every time I access audible I am told the book I am reading I is finished, the only recourse I have found is to check which chapter I am on and manually select that chapter when I return to the app. Needless to say I spend a lot of time repeat listening to chapter openings. It wouldn't be so bad if there was the option to go directly to a certain time point in the book. I have six unused credits on my account and books I would like to listen to but am simply tired of dealing with this apocalyptically awful excuse for an app. People of Amazon, you may care not for the views of your customers but we can vote with our feet and this customer will be cancelling his Kindle, Audible and Prime accounts on October 31st unless you provide me with a serviceable app. You have good notice.

    no problems, works with phone os 8.1 ... allow the app to run in background, via battery saver settings, which solved a problem of the app being nonresponsive after the phone goes into standby and reopened

    I wish I could love the app. It's so flaky and buggy. The service is stunning, but the Windows Phone app just needs some work. Come on Audible/Amazon - issue an update. (Happy to provide more details/beta test)

    The worst app on my phone. I have audible on iPad and had it on android phone and they work very well. But this is just shocking. My Nokia 930 is super fast with all apps except this one. I now have the knack - wait for up to 3 minutes, then the blank sound changes slightly, then the play switch appears (its not there at the start). Windows phones seem to be the future so why doesn't audible sort this out???

    Good app in theory but absolutely full of bugs. Loses your place in the book, won't load or ignores key-presses if no signal, corrupts book files. Come on Amazon - How about an update?

    Audible is great but this app is not! Buggy and overly complicated.
