    Seems only Librivox supports an online player. Which is a viable option - even on Chromebooks. Of course what we really want is agnostic playback and auto bookmarking of the audiobooks we have saved to various cloud hosts.

    Audible's app for iOS is so overdeveloped that it sometimes will not function. The ceaseless drive to clutter and mitigate the functionality of a perfectly good app with unnessary features is never more apparent here.
    I use it on an iPhone in conjunction with a Bluetooth Oticon hearing aid. The original app worked flawlessly and now I struggle with this ill conceived 'improved' iteration.
    It is an embarrassment that most companies endure when absorbed by huge, poorly managed corporations (Amazon in this case) and the end user consistently suffers.
