It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about what I’ve been working on lately, so I thought I would provide a quick update to whoever still reads this thing .
A few posts ago I talked a little bit about our latest and greatest audiobooks-related initiative at the time: UnlimitedListening.com. This was a website which offered unlimited audiobook downloads from a selection of several thousand titles. The service was powered by the Simply Audiobooks Download Hub, a piece of software designed to simplify the entire process of downloading and listening to an audiobook.
Fast-forward just six months and things are already dramatically different.
First of all, the UnlimitedListening.com project has been “replaced” by the new Audiobooks.com service. I say “replaced” and not “modified” or “re-branded” because there are a handful of very fundamental differences between the two services.
Here is a quick list of new features which separate Audiobooks.com from its predecessor:
- The most significant change with Audiobooks.com is the move from downloading to streaming. Now, instead of having to wait for your audiobooks to download before you can listen to them, you can hit Play and start listening right away!
- Another cool addition to Audiobooks.com is the new mobile version of the website (which is compatible with most smart phones). If you visit the website using a mobile device, we will automatically detect this and bring you to our mobile-optimized website. This means that you can now listen to audiobooks on your phone anywhere you want so long as you have an active internet connection.
- Thousands of New Titles
- Every single day we are adding more and more titles to Audiobooks.com. We now have several thousand more titles than we did when we launched UnlimitedListening.com!
Anyways, that’s it for updates. As usual, please feel free to contact me with any feedback (positive or negative) that you may have, or even if you have an idea for a cool new feature that you would like to see!
