“After dropping downloadable audiobooks earlier this year, Barnes & Noble is returning to the business with the release of the Nook Audiobooks App for Android devices. The app offers access to 50,000 digital audiobooks, and features audiobook samples, recommendations and regularly discounted titles.
The Nook Audiobooks app is available today, November 19, in the Google Play store. To launch the new app, Nook Media has a limited-time offer of two free audiobooks from a weekly list of bestselling titles. The audiobook app—which is separate from the Nook e-book app—is launching on the Android operating system. (Nook tablet devices are produced in partnership with Samsung, which uses the Android OS.) Support for Apple’s iOS 8 platform is slated for Spring 2015.”
