Good news for the technology-savvy bibliophiles out there: Audiobooks.com has launched the first unlimited cloud-based audio book service, now available for all Android and iOS mobile devices.
The service will cost $24.94 per month, but you can read, no need to return the audio books, no long-term contracts, and no time constraints - and all the audiobooks you can listen to your heart's content. From the press release:
Since it's a cloud-based service, Audiobooks.com allows users to instantly access thousands of popular titles from anywhere using an Internet-enabled mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or tablet. There are no storage constraints because the content resides on the cloud, and users can access and play audio books instantly with no downloading necessary.
Users can mark their place in an audio book and resume listening at the same spot from any Android or Apple device, laptop or home computer without using a browser plug-in or special application. This innovative new feature enhances the user experience and is only available through Audiobooks.com's proprietary cloudmark sync technology.
Sanjay Singhal, CEO of Audiobooks.com, predicted that the new service would "revolutionize the audio books industry." He added, "We believe our ability to empower users to listen from anywhere using a mobile device, the cloud-based bookmarking function and the affordable access to unlimited service of thousands of bestsellers will transform the way customers use audio books."
