Free public domain audiobooks app Audiobooks (kind of like Audible for the poor-dible) has just received a notable upgrade.
Coinciding with the app’s fifth anniversary, Audiobooks 6.0 features a redesigned interface — improving significantly on the iOS 7 overhaul which arrived last September. The improved interfaces adds book covers for easier searching, along with a better library and file management system.
