Audible is a pretty popular audio book app and currently the only option for BlackBerry users. They recently updated their application to version 1.4.2 which brought the following updates:
- All screens have been optimized for faster loading.
- No more waiting to get back to your audio. You are immediately taken to the player screen upon loading the application, if your last action within the app was listening to audio.
- Performance of user-interface elements has been improved. (scrolling through lists, audio playback buttons, etc.)
- My Library is now stored directly on your device for faster loading of your purchased titles.
- Support for the Curve 8900
- Audio playback bug while Audible for BlackBerry is minimized has been fixed
- Improved support for BlackBerry Enterprise Servers
- Landscape typing for the BlackBerry Storm now supported
In short it is a major performance boost. Audible is compatible with the Pearl, Curve, 8800, Curve 8900, Bold,and Storm. You can pick it up OTA at www.audible.com/bb from your BlackBerry.
