The art of reading is not dead as Harry Potter proved, but it’s clear that people are finding less and less time to spend sitting down with a good book. In fact, if you did a survey, you’d probably find that most people either read just before turning out the light at night, or when they’ve got the space on a vacation to make it happen. If only there were more hours in a day.
The new Audiobook HQ app for iPhone recognizes how difficult it is to get the time, and instead offers to let you listen to your favorite books as they’re read to you via audio. The benefit is you can be listening and doing other things, which means you get more chances to catch up on your suspense, romance, thrills and laughs.
The app itself costs $1.99 from iTunes, but for that you get a beautifully designed program, along with a stonking 5,353 free audiobooks to start off your collection. That should be enough listening to cope with all your driving, work-out, commuting, cooking and other free ear periods for several lifetimes. The developers also promise more top quality titles to come, so this could be a great way to invest in the future of your literary library.
