    I thought there was an Audible app rumored to be out today. I guess not. Has anyone heard how the beta is doing?

    I'm waiting for this too.

    I didn't hear the rumor that it would be out today, but I had heard it would be out last March (obviously it wasn't).

    The rumor that it was coming out today was pretty vague, and that was un-verified from a Tweet from Paul Thurrott of winsupersite.com:

    https://twitter.com/#!/thurrott/stat...13483699367936

    I'm excited for the app...I'm still hoping that maybe it'll be released later today? Though I would've thought there'd be more hoopla about it, and there's no mention of it on winsupersite. :(

    Checked again this morning :'o( Still no Audible app, but there is a nice facebook app update. I think I'm close to getting my wife to switch to WP from iPhone. She's a Facebook and Pinerest junky. WP has really nice apps for both. Im not a big Pinerest fan, but Pinsation app is killing iPhones app.

    I hope it gets here this week because it is one of my top apps that I used my iPhone for. I love listening to books at the gym.

    For all of us waiting on the Audible.com app, bad news: no indication that it's happening this week, or even soon! :(

    When is it coming? The latest report is that it isn't coming soon. I don't mind waiting a few days but I have to return my phone by May 9th and one of the reasons I picked up Windows Phone is due to the upcoming audible app.

    Its coming. The report I read a month ago or so on WP news app state the app is in beta. Its kind of BS that a great platform is getting trashed cause it can't get dev support.

    But when is it coming? I'm not going to leave the platform, because of its absence (I knew it wasn't available when I came to WP7), but it is very frustrating to have to wait and wait and wait, only to get our hopes up with rumored dates that come and go with no announcement.

    Has anyone else receive any emails from them before? Like a month or two ago? I just want to make sure it's not a generic email they are still sending out to everyone, waiting for their app. Told them in my email, as soon as they release the app, I will renew my membership, I just don't have any plans on using Android or iOS anymore(nothing wrong with either, just really like WP OS)

    I got one from them about 6 weeks or so ago, which was an almost verbatim copy the above, except it said nothing of the two weeks.

    Ok, then this really is good news(trying not to run down the hall and cut backflips, just in case someone else say otherwise). Maybe they are finally starting to get really close to release. I really thought for sure it was going to be released at the same time with the Lumia 900, but maybe(hoping anyway), they really are trying to take full advantage of Mango and have it being one of the best apps of all time!

    Glad I could help :) I remember reading another article recently that said that the beta app looked ready for release: fully functional, no bugs, etc. Hopefully it's close...

    Hey guys I have had the audible beta for a few weeks now. It runs really great I think the reason they have been holding off the release is because as of now they have still not implemented naration speeds and ability to download and listen to those daily downloads like the wsj and nyt. I am sure they really are just waiting to release until they have a complete product. I personally have been using as much lately because i normally listen to books at 2x and lacking this option I find is important to me. If any of you would like beta you will need dev unlocked phone to install beta as they give you a xap file to install for it. If you are not unlocked and you have any access to someone with a .edu email you can get yours unlocked for free very easily. I got mine unlocked by using my old college email that for some reason years later is still active
