6 Audiobook Apps for people on the go!

🎧

I love me some narration when I’m in my bathtub soaking up the suds. My phone is always full of queued books, especially the really wordy ones and I get through them in parts – on my morning dog walks, while driving or getting my nails done. I really get a kick out of author narrations and how involved you can get in their world. If you haven’t given audiobooks a shot you should download one (or two or more) of the 6 below ASAP!

1. Scribd

This one makes it right next to my Facebook app on my phone. Easy access to the best audiobooks, books, magazines, documents and much more. It syncs across all your devices and the monthly subscription works out much cheaper than buying a paperback.

The Downpour app has revolutionized the audiobook experience. The interface is extremely attractive with traditional audio controls in addition to variable speed narration, sleep timer, bookmarking etc. They got me at – sleep timer. I sometimes snooze off and then tracing back to where I left is a herculean task!
