Boise, ID (PRWEB) May 10, 2012 –
Taking the same easy-to-use interface as its original app, Audiobook Pop! expands into Science Fiction Audiobooks, Memoirs Audiobooks and Fantasy Audiobooks over the summer of 2012. Audiobook Pop! (formerly, Audiobooks For Your Kids) was founded in 2010 to provide a solution to the following three points of pain:
-buying audiobooks is expensive,
-owning, renting and borrowing CDs can be a hassle,
-being offered thousands of books by other apps is overwhelming.
Audiobook Pop! curates its content so that there is minimal decision making, ease of use and affordability. Too much choice is not a good thing.
Boise mom and filmmaker, Elizabeth Rodgers, first had the vision for an audiobook app when she took a road trip with her family, including two young children. “There’s nothing wrong with watching DVDs on the road, but I’m determined to raise them as readers.” The non-technical Rodgers partnered with Boisean designer and developer, Mazal Simantov. Together they architected the simplicity and intuitiveness of the app and Simantov created the elegantly simple design. The keys to success were threefold: ease of use, great content, efficient user choice. In February 2011, the first app, Audiobooks For Your Kids, was launched.
Once the original app had been established, Rodgers and Simantov received feedback from users that similar apps with different themes would be well received. To meet that demand, they chose three new themes: Science Fiction, Memoirs and Fantasy.
Users can search through the selection of science fiction audiobooks by author, title, time, narrator or with a keyword search. Authors include Jules Verne, Edgar Rice Burroughs, E.M Forster and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
A must-have iOS app, Audiobooks - Sci Fi lets you effortlessly listen to classic Science Fiction audiobooks. For only $1.99, simply download the stories and you are ready to go. Over thirty of the [underline]best-narrated science fiction titles[/underline] from Librivox. Available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
