Baker & Taylor and Findaway World Launch Acoustik Audiobooks

Baker & Taylor announced the launch of a new mobile platform that allows consumers to buy and download digital audiobooks on their Apple and Android devices. Currently, Acoustik is live at selected retailers and is coming soon for libraries. The free app is powered by Findaway World, LLC, an industry leader in audiobook distribution. Acoustik currently provides consumers access to nearly 40,000 titles from a wide range of publishers, and a streamlined, intuitive way of downloading and listening to their favorite content anytime, anywhere.

“The release of Acoustik is an important milestone in giving consumers, retailers and publishers more choices in the delivery of audio content,” says David Cully, president of Baker & Taylor Retail Markets. “Digital audio is growing rapidly. Developed by one of the leaders in audio content, this platform, along with the strong partnerships Baker & Taylor has forged, will allow more great content to be available at the fingertips of consumers, who are very eager for it.”

While available now in selected retail outlets, Baker & Taylor and Findaway World also plan to launch Acoustik as part of the Axis 360 digital media platform for libraries and their patrons.

Acoustik is available for download, at no charge, on iPhones and iPads through Apple’s App Store and on Android devices through Google Play (formerly Android Market). Find information on Acoustik’s features, highlighted titles, and more at www.acoustik.com.
