    Like Audio Books? If so...(Audible)!

    Here is the excerpt from Lifehacker
    Android: Quietly rolled out for public testing, audiobook service Audible has a free beta of its Android app that some users have been describing as the last iPhone-to-Android gap. As you'd expect, it downloads, plays, and maintains your audiobook collection. Image via Android Central.
    It's an open beta at the moment, but you need to join the Audible for Android Google Group to get the download link—luckily, there's a "no email, I'll read online" option. Once you're in, and after you've grabbed the software, Audible for Android works as you'd expect. Audiobook files loaded on your SD card can be loaded up and played, and those with Audible accounts, starting at $7.49 per month, can download new books from the app. The books play in the background, of course, so you can do anything else on your phone while catching up on The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo.
    Audible for Android is a free, open beta. Tell us what you think of the app, and what could be improved, in the comments. If you want to let us all know what killer app is still missing from the Android Market (other than games, of course), do tell, too.
    I've been reading about this app for awhile now and if you've missed this from your iPhone you can finally download for your Droid!

    Enjoy

    I've been using the Audible app for a few weeks. It works well, but I have few issues:

    1) The "Disable Auto Lock" option disables auto lock until I reboot my phone
    2) Sometimes, the widget shows incorrect information and becomes unresponsive
    3) I frequently, accidentally hit the rewind button (user error, but I wish the button were hidden)

    I've been using the Audible app for a while now on my Droid X and I love it. Just bought a new Ford Pickup and tried listening to my audio books over the Sync system that allows you to play music via Blue Tooth Audio and USB. I've been able to listen to my audio books when in Blue Tooth mode but not in USB mode which would also keep my phone charged. The Sync system dosn't seem to find the folder where the Audible App stored the audio books. Any ideas?
