    I search in the market for Audible and it popped right up. I don't have an account so I can't test it out or anything, but it popped right up in the market for me.

    I guess the beta ended then. The article I linked to is from June after all.

    Hey guys,

    Don't know if its just me, but when i select the Audible app, i get 'Not Found'. Using Appbrain to search the market as the standard market doesn't find the audible app.

    Has Audible pulled the app for some reason?

    Yup, i can see the app but when i tap it to try and install the app, i just get the 'Not found' message flash up on my screen and the app shuts down. Strange. And frustrating. I must be doing something wrong but for the life of me i can't figure out what.

    I use Audible on my N1. I just checked the Market and it is listed there as Audible for Android. I just searched under "Audible" and it came right up. It also give you a free audiobook of your choice if you don't have a subscription and it's a 30-day free trial.

    I've been using Mortplayer for non DRM books. It's a great app. The guy who makes the app has a lot of experience.

    I wonder if it's just not available in the UK.
