Tip: Audible for iPhone Audio Book Listening Statistics

Audible’s audiobook listening and management app for the iPhone does more that let you listen to audio books. It can download books from your library stored on Audible’s servers. It provides audio book news. And, it can provide statistics about your audio book reading behavior. Just tap My Stats on the options list at the bottom of the screen to learn about your current book listening, past week’s listening, by-month listening, and all-time. I was shocked to learn that I had not listened to any audio books at all in the September and October of last year. Note, however, that the app only provides statistics for audio book use on the specific device. So, if you split Audible audio book reading across, for example, a desktop computer, iPad, iPhone, and Kindle, the iPhone statistics only looks at audio books listened to on the iPhone itself.

The Audible for iPhone app is available for free in the iTunes App Store.
