Audible’s new app for Windows 10 is now available with a completely redesigned user experience. The result is a unified platform with unique features and responsive design that flows on Windows 10 PCs and Phones.  If you’ve never tried Audible, now is the time to get your 30-day trial. Choose any audiobook for free and it’s yours to keep even after the trial is over.

Audible has over 180,000 titles.  During a recent road trip around the Cascade Loop, we got hooked on Audible and have been reading The Martian which is shaping up to be an amazing movie as well.
