Audiobooks Now Audio Books

Audiobooks Now Audio Books is a great application for fans of stories and novels, who love listening to audiobooks and saving money in the process.
The application is divided into three different tabs: Browse, where you can navigate across the wide collection of audiobooks available; My Library, where you can manage your downloaded audiobooks; and finally My Account, where you can change the settings and opt for a premium plan.
The application lets you stream or download audiobooks at a great price thanks to its Club Pricing ($5 a month or $36 a year).
The app provides a great service and is quick and easy to use: the offer is pretty good, there are popular best-sellers and also new releases from popular authors (for example, Mary Higgins Clark, Nora Roberts, Jeffrey Deaver...). There are about 60,000 audiobooks to download, so you'll never get bored.
The app also presents a shelf for Non-Fiction audiobooks, as well as 'Specials' and 'Recommendations'. If you don't have much money, you can access the Free Audiobooks shelf and download those ones (there's Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, etc).
As for functionalities, the audiobook always saves and picks up where you left it, so you don't have to worry about that. Also, once you've downloaded your audiobook, there's no need for an Internet connection anymore.
The design is not great and should be enhanced, usability isn't quite good and the user experience isn't as satisfying as you could expect. It's a pity, because the idea is definitely good and there's much potential here.
Another aspect to consider is organization: as we've said, there are thousands of audiobooks, but you can't get to all them easily. There should be genre categories so one can look for their favorite thrillers, chick-lit and science-fiction books. And what about tops?
A promising app that should revamp its interface in order to actually stand out.
