Is there an update to the Kindle Fire Audible app? The functionality is sub par on the Fire version vs. the IOS app. Kind of odd considering Amazon owns Audible right?

What do you mean by "subpar"? The Audible app on my Kindle Fire (original) looks and works the same way it does on my Android phone. What odes the iOS app do that the Fire one won't?

Well thats why I'm hoping there is an app update that I'm missing. But, among my chief complaints are:
The seek slider does not stop where I tell it to, it jumps to a seemingly random place on the bar. IOS it stops right when I let go.
Starting the app fails often hangs the app and I need to tell it to wait rather than force close the app.
The fast forward/backward functions on IOS app actually plays a part of what is being skipped so you know where in the book you are.
There is additional swipe functionality on IOS that does not seem to be supported on the fire version.

Hmmm. I have no idea what might be wrong. None of those things happen for me. It starts without a problem. The slider bar stops where it is when I lift my finger. And the fast forward and back buttons "speak" as they work. Sorry yours is misbehaving.
