Audiobooks.com Updates Versions of iOS and Android Apps
Sep 20, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Audiobooks.com, a service that allows members to stream and download audiobooks, announced it is poised to capitalize on streaming's marketplace momentum as new technologies spring up to support consumers' appetite for streaming on demand.
"Audiobooks.com is leading the streaming revolution in the audiobooks space," said Sanjay Singhal, CEO of Audiobooks.com and a veteran of numerous successful technology and retail startups as well as several Fortune 500 telecommunications and broadband companies. "While other services require users to download and store content, we give members a choice of on-demand streaming or downloading for times when they can't access broadband for streaming."
According to a release, Audiobooks.com announced the release of updated versions of the company's free iOS and Android apps. Featuring a new user interface, the newly released apps are available at Apple's App Store for iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads or at Google Play for Android devices. Members can use the apps to stream content on demand, choosing from tens of thousands of audio book titles like The Hunger Games trilogy and the Twilight series as well as books such as Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman and Hidden Order, a thriller by Brad Thor.
Travelers and commuters often download audiobooks for listening during a road trip or on the way to work, but technology is expanding access to streaming platforms on the go. A recent Consumer Reports article noted that "in-car electronics is the fastest-growing area of auto technology," with sophisticated "infotainment centers" delivering access to an array of media platforms for drivers and passengers, including media streaming capabilities.
"Streaming technology is changing the way people access content across the media spectrum," Singhal, noted. "Broadband access is on a steep upward trajectory, and new technologies are supporting expanded access to streaming platforms everywhere. Audiobooks.com is the only player in the industry that is delivering audiobooks in the on-demand streaming format consumers increasingly prefer."
