PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - Audiobooks - Austen, will be released December 17, 2012. Audiobooks - Austen is a Jane Austen audio book anthology, collected from the best audiobooks at Librivox.org. For the Jane Austen enthusiast, this is an easy purchase. Not only do you get Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey, but you also get lesser known stories like Lady Susan, The History of England as well as a biography of Jane Austen by her nephew. Once you buy the app, the audiobooks are free to download.

Audiobook Pop! 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. Audiobook Pop! includes only the best narrators from Librivox.org.  All the apps from Audiobook Pop! are $0.99 cents and the audiobook downloads are free. One of the apps, Audiobooks - Kids (f), is free.

Audiobook Pop! co-founder, Elizabeth Rodgers had the idea to create the app because similar apps were hard to navigate. “There are other apps that have similar content, but they include the entire Librivox catalog. Not all of the volunteer narrators on Librivox are reliable. No matter how great the book is, if you don’t like the narrator, it’s impossible to listen.  Audiobook Pop! does the curating for you, both for narrators and specific themes.”

Once the original app, Audiobooks For Your Kids, had been established, Rodgers and co-Founder Mazal Simantov received feedback from users that similar apps with different themes would be well received. To meet that demand, in Spring 2012, they released Audiobooks - Sci-Fi and later Audiobooks - Austen, and Audiobooks - Tales, a collection of fairy tales and folk tales from around the world.

Rodgers says that launching apps for Android devices was just a matter of time: “With the revenue we earned in iTunes, we were able to invest in Android development.  Now Android users can join the tens of thousands who have already downloaded Audiobook Pop! apps.”

Audiobook Pop! is a great example of a frictionless startup: started by a group of friends at home.  Audiobook Pop! offers themed and curated audiobook apps in iTunes and Google Play.  All the apps from Audiobook Pop! are $0.99 cents and the audiobook downloads are free. One of the apps, Audiobooks - Kids (f), is free.
