One of the great new features that Microsoft packed inside Windows Phone 8 involves better speech recognition capabilities, which will enable users to make actual conversations with their devices.
One of the applications that will fully take advantage of this feature was already demoed at the Windows Phone 8
launch event, Audible.
The application was already made available for download through the Windows Phone Marketplace, and those who want to get a taste of it before Windows Phone 8 arrives can now head over to the app portal for that.
“Audible.com, the internet’s premier provider of digital audiobooks and more, is now available for Windows Phone,” the app’s developer notes.
“This free app features the most comprehensive audiobook experience ever, including the ability to download from your Audible library, detailed listening stats, access to the Audible mobile store, and much more.”
Even those who are not yet Audible members will be able to take advantage of the application. Moreover, the company notes that they will enjoy access to 8 excerpts from their favorite authors to get them started.
“Audible for Windows Phone
features the best audio book listening experience and more,” the development team notes.
Some of the main features that users will enjoy when accessing the application include: Bookmarking, Sleep Mode, Button Free Mode, and Play as you Download.
Moreover, the application will enable owners of Windows Phone devices to earn badges and track their personal listening habits, and even connect to Facebook or Twitter to let their friends know what they are listening to.
Also, the app comes with an Audible Newsfeed, to deliver insider information about author events and other details, and it offers a great listening experience for audio books. It supports Audible.com, Audible.co.uk, Audible.de.
The best part of the deal is, of course, the access to the over 100,000+ digital audiobooks and other content that users can discover and access in the Audible mobile store, including best sellers, classics, and more.
Available for all devices running under Windows Phone 7.5 and higher, the application can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace via this link
