Audiobook-loving librarians and patrons alike can now discover and sample new audiobooks directly on their devices with Penguin Random House Audio’s new Volumes App.
Volumes features exclusive extended excerpts from bestselling authors, including Jodi Picoult, Sophie Kinsella, and Jim Gaffigan, and will regularly offer free full-length audiobook downloads.
With Volumes, available on the App Store℠ for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, readers can get recommendations and listen to thousands of samples of the best audiobooks across many genres, find top authors and narrators, and easily share their favorite listens to Twitter and Facebook. Listeners can access their free downloads offline and play audiobooks from their existing library with the simple to navigate audio player, as well as purchase full audiobooks via the iBooks Store℠ with one click. “After one great recording, you’re hooked on the listening experience,” says Amanda D’Acierno, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Penguin Random House Audio. “With Volumes, we want to help connect every listener with a new audiobook that they will love.”
The Volumes app builds on Penguin Random House Audio’s successful “Try Audiobooks” campaign, which drives awareness for the audiobook format, and encourages listeners of all kinds (from runners, to crafters, cooks and travelers) to fit more reading into their lives with audiobooks.
