Bar-None Best App/Support Developer replied to my email and attempted to solve my problem at around 22:00 on a Saturday night. I have heard that this developer is great at support, but this was above and beyond. The perfect player for audiobooks. Any listener needs to try. I was EASILY convinced after my month-long trial. I use other players for music, but, for audiobooks, this app is 2nd to none. Also, lovely interface. Best couple of dollars I've ever spent.
Best audiobook player I have found on Android yet. Works well and allows me to put a .nomedia file in my audio book folder to block my music player seeing all my audiobooks. There is however a fairly big niggle that revolves around .m4b format audiobooks that stop me giving it five stars. Namely you have to create a folder per book, which is something of a hassle given that at least one of the points of the m4b format is that you have either a single file per book or perhaps two or three at most. It would be a lot less hassle to just be able to drop all my .m4b files into a single folder. It is easier to manage 50 books as single files in a single folder than 50 files in 50 folders!
Just the job - plain and simple! Great little app - does what it is meant to do, and does it well. However, I'm a bit bemused by the way it orders the files: seems to sort by bitrate first, then track number. Is there any way to override this & force files to play in track order? LATEST: renamed the offending files and all works perfectly - review updated to 5 stars!
I listen to approx. 100 audiobooks per year. In my opinion. this is the best audiobook player for media outside of Audible. It's easy to use with a straightforward interface. It always keeps your place in the audiobook regardless of restarts. It merges files together into nice neat audiobook folders. The sleep function is a bit odd but works well and exactly as descibed. The library features and layout are nice and I love being able to easily search for an audiobook cover. All in all, I highly recommend giving this one a try.
Best audiobook app I have managed to find. Beats the Audible app hands down. I love the snooze feature. I tend to listen to books when falling asleep, and this feature allows me to do this without the book running for hours during the night. Also if I'm having difficulty falling asleep I can always shake the phone to continue listening. The great functions of this feature are something I haven't been able to find in any other app. This has all the features I could wish for: lock option on rewind-buttons, speed and volume adjusters, multiple options for progress display etc. The library interface is slightly counterintuitive, but not an issue with the rest of the app functioning so great.
The only way to listen to audiobooks! I love listening to audiobooks. Before I found this app is had to physically document my progress. This was a pain not only for multiple books, but if i forgot one day, I would be lost. Also since I was using my MP3 player, if I accidentally played a song, I could mess up my progress. This app removes those worries. The library keeps track of my progress. The cloud features syncs my phone and tablet. This is a must have app!
