Conclusion:

This little audio book client is actually pretty sweet because it just reads the book to you so you don’t have to stare at a small screen and hurt your eyes for hours on end.  You will be able to get a few free books when you first download the app to give you a little teaser and draw you in.  The app itself has some pretty cool features and controls including the ability to sync with the audible.com website so that you can shop for a variety of different audio books.  The controls features center around the ability to navigate through chapters and you can also create notes and even do some book marking.  There is a sleep timer and you can also share books with the social sharing apps.  There are a few gripes with the app however, including the fact that you don’t really have a direct link to be able to purchase the sample audio books.  It can be a little bit confusing and sometimes frustrating if you don’t know what you are trying to do.

This app has been given pretty decent ratings and currently has a rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars and is completely free to download onto your phone but keep in mind that purchases of the books are completely separate.
