The audiobooks work with iTunes on Mac and PC or if you don't use iTunes they have their own Audible download manager for PC. They also have an app for iOS, Windows and Android.
All this might be more info than what you were looking for but I hope it helps you and anyone else browsing the deal.
I've been an audible customer before and a couple of problems i found with them is that I could often get most of the books free at the library, and with their DRM you're locked in, just like iTunes. Since I have a habit of changing computers (usually have 3-4 at a time) and hard drives frequently, it got really annoying having to seek approval to authorize a new machine/disk (again, just like the iTunes PITA), and no one else can listen/read the book unless they share your account.
There is at least one way to remove their DRM, but it's not a free, or quick, option. It's worth the investment to remove it if you're going to listen to books on different devices, want to share with family members, have multiple computers, or change computers often.
