Thing #12: Books, Books, and More Books (Audiobooks App)
For this thing, I decided to try out the Audiobooks App. It is very user friendly and seems to have lots of titles - though, as comes with the territory with free audiobooks, none seemed to be best sellers or recent publications. I did appreciate that these were streaming (instead of taking the time to download the audiobooks), though on the flipside I can see some situations (ie on an airplane with no access to a data network) where streaming would not be ideal. As far as the narration quality, again - beggers can't be choosers. Thus I can't expect someone like Jim Dale to be narrating free audiobooks. But those that I listened to snippets of seemed to be good enough.
