Audiobook Now has announced they have added more than 1,000 titles from Oasis Audio to their catalogue, bringing their audiobook offerings to more than 30,000 at present. The partnership with Oasis Audio also makes them the 10th biggest audiobook publisher to share content with Audiobooks Now. This will also act to boost the digital audiobook provider's offering of religious and inspirational themed books given Oasis Audio's penchant to come up with such titles that promote healthy living, positive growth and so on. Oasis Audio is already counted among the biggest producer of Christian audiobooks in the US, which includes the bible though they have diversified to other genres such as fiction, non-fiction and self-help titles as well.
Speaking of the development, Doug Ross, President and CEO of AudiobooksNow said: "Personal growth has been a popular subject in our audiobook rental service for years, so we are delighted to be increasing our selection of these types of titles on digital audiobook download and streaming platform”.

The Good e-Reader Android and Blackberry App Store is celebrating a new milestone today with 80 million new visitors in one year. This is tremendous growth and a testament to the fact that the public wants an app store that focuses on quality. Google Play, Blackberry World and a number of other app markets are always trumpeting the number of apps they have. Seriously, how many fart, flashlight and Clone apps do we need?
Currently, Good e-Reader has close to 100,000 Android and Blackberry Playbook apps listed in the store. The apps come from developers who use our Developer Portal and our team of curation specialists. We monitor all of the latest apps, games and cool tools that we think matter.
We have developed a series of proprietary technology that simplifies a developer’s life. Our APK TO BAR Converter allows everyone to take an Android app and output it to a BAR file, that is compatible with any device running Blackberry 10. Right now, we are working on a bleeding edge converter that will take Android files and convert them to Tizen. This is useful to any developer that wants to make phone, tablet or smartphone apps for the new Tizen OS Samsung is using.
The Good e-Reader App Store is available via the Web, and you can download thousands of apps, without having to register. All of the Android or Blackberry apps can be downloaded with just 1 click. We have also developed a fairly awesome APP Store client that you can install on any Blackberry or Android device.
A source within Amazon has disclosed to Good e-Reader that the upcoming Kindle Paperwhite 3 will use new screen technology. The entire e-reader will be lighter than previous models, have higher resolution and incorporate a flexible display.
The Kindle Paperwhite 3 will be using screen technology that was developed by e Ink and Sony called Mobius. Mobius uses a TFT technology that will enable the development of much lighter and rugged products. Mobius displays can weigh less than 50% of an equivalent glass based TFT. This is particularly important for mobile products requiring larger display areas.
The only commercially viable product to use Mobius screen technology was the Sony 13.3 inch e-reader. When I had the first exclusive hands on of it was the lightest device I have ever played with in the history of e-readers. The 13.3 inch screen is beguiling to behold and you would figure from looking at it that it would weigh significantly more than the Kindle DX. In truth it weighs only 12.6 oz, compared to the Kindle DX, which weighs a hefty 18.9 oz. The e-paper screen glides like a feather when dropped, as I found out.
e Ink Mobius e-Paper can be cut to a customers specific requirements, and still maintain the long battery life, lightweight nature and high resolution. This will insure that the new Kindle Paperwhite 3 will have all of the main benefits of the Sony 13.3 e-reader, but in a small, lightweight six inch screen.
