What features would you like to see in Audiobooks?

26 05 2010

We’re always looking for ideas for new features for our Audiobooks app.   So, tell me what you want to see in future releases. Below are a few things I’ve already heard from users, so tell me if these are important to you, too, or if you can think of anything else that would make Audiobooks an even better App!

1. Want to be able to select stream only for books – so they don’t download to your device and take up space

2. Want to either have cover art included in the app, or have the ability to add it if you want

3. Custom time option for the sleep timer

4. Ability to rate books within the app – and search by user ratings so you can see who the best readers are

I am not sure if this is possible, but maybe a recommended books thing based on tags, genre, author, etc. of the book the user is currently listening to. Also maybe since the suggestion for bookart, make it so they can check for available text versions of the book as well. In fact that would make a good feature for the pro/paid version.

Oh yea. The book download can come from some place like Gutenburg or whatever. Just in case you were interested.

I’d vote for select stream and the custom timer. The others aren’t things I really care about. I’m sure you have limited time, and I’d much rather see you focus on more PLUS titles than pretty cover shots or ratings…. Just an opinion.

Our latest update will include streaming, a custom sleep timer and an update from librivox.
