The big news with Audible for iPhone 1.3 is access to the new beta mobile webstore for browsing and purchasing Audible books from your iPhone. Version 1.3 has a new "Shop" tab accessible from your "My Library" screen. From the shop tab there is an orange "Enter the Mobile Store" button, clicking it launches mobile safari - sign in and you are displayed with a mobile version of the Audible.com website. You can browse, view your wish list and purchase books. Then return to the Audible for iPhone app and download your newly purchased book - via wifi.
Access to purchasing is a big win for the Audible iPhone application, this added to the already useful bookmarking and sleep timer functionality results in a better book listening experience than using the built-in iPod functionality.
