ABOUT THE APP The Black Library Audio app is the ultimate way to experience Black Library’s wide range of audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want, right on your iPhone and iPad. Choose from a wide range of over 170 audio titles set in the immersive worlds of Warhammer 40,000, The Horus Heresy and Warhammer Age of Sigmar. KEY FEATURES STORE View the vast range of audiobooks and dramas, filtered by setting. Find your favourite series, or a new one, and buy every title that belongs to it. Get a taste of the action with a free sample before buying. LIBRARY Browse the audiobooks and audio dramas you’ve purchased in the app’s Library. Sort your audios by purchase date, title or series. They’re all stored remotely for you to download to your device whenever you want to listen to them. You can toggle freely between titles on your device and everything you’ve purchased. PLAYER The app also features an audio player, allowing you to listen to your downloaded audiobooks and audio dramas wherever you are, whenever you want. Never be without your fix of fantastic adventures from the worlds of Warhammer! Link up via bluetooth to listen remotely with cordless headphones or in your car. SEARCH A fully-featured search function allows you to find the audio you’re looking for in a variety of ways. You can search by title, author or keyword. Looking for stories that feature Ultramarines? Just type it into the search bar and you’ll find them all. The search function will even shortlist and show titles based on what you type, as you type it. EXPERIENCE With our audiobooks you get to experience the story as it was meant to be heard. Word for word your narrator will read the story to you, straight from the page. Audiobooks are usually full and unabridged versions of novels, novellas or short stories. With our audio dramas you are immersed in the story. Gunfire, battle cries and music form the backdrop on which actors play out the characters. The narrator links the tale together so all you have to do is listen to the action. Audio Drama’s are uniquely scripted and can range in length between roughly 10 minutes and 2 hours.

  • Awesome BL option

    Outside of not being able to download the files to my iTunes account, this app does what it says. I have had none of the glitches the others have posted. I even had to change devices and no problems there either. Best part for me, it's that the files are cheaper than mp3 or CD.
  • Can't link with BL account

    If you've purchased Black Library titles in the past, you can't play them here, not can you play titles purchased in-app on a pc
  • Conveniently inconvenient

    I have to start off by saying I love Black Library and the media they produce. And I have to say it's great to have so much that they have created in the audio format quickly available at your fingertips. Here is the problem, the audiobooks are formatted just like the books to have multiple tracks to correspond with chapters, but they don't work. Tracks are listed to have a run time of 0 seconds and you're stuck listing to a "prologue" track that goes on for for 8 solid hours. If you happen to lose your place you are in a bind. Since the tracks don't work you have to start back at the beginning and press the fast forward button, which only moves 30 seconds at a time btw, until you catch back up to where you were. When this app first came out I didn't have this problem, so far I've had 6 books with this problem. I hope it gets fixed soon.
  • Avoid at all costs - you can't link iOS/PC purchases!

    Purchases made via the web store and those made via the iOS app cannot be linked. This is a huge oversight, especially since you can't get the iOS purchases off of your device to play on a PC, etc.
  • It's pretty awesome

    I really like it, for what it is I enjoy what it has to offer no other app I have found gives you access to such great stories. some flaws like skipping to other chapters or if you buy bulk you can't skip to other books but I really enjoy it non the less! Great app

    Got the app, but don't plan on buying any audiobooks until I can link my accounts together. I've been buying the 40k audio dramas for years, and have no desire to pay for them a second time.

    Don't know why we are unable to link iOS purchases with ones we already have.
  • Expensive and buggy

    I bought Age of Darkness for $40 to listen to on a long drive. It wouldn't download so I didn't have it on my drive. I had to delete the app, restore purchases and then it downloaded on the 2nd attempt. The 1st one stalled and gave up without explanation. The Chapters don't work - they just restart the book - very annoying - had to skip through 30 sec at a time to find my place. When I got into my car and started it over bluetooth the book restarted again! Not a good experience for such an expensive audiobook.

    Worked great for the first two books I bought, it even keeps your place in you close out the app. The second two I bought aren't downloading properly, they download as a 0:00 book/chapters. If they fix this I will be giving 4 stars and 5 if you can link to the other books purchased from the web site.
