First off, I've been using the Listen Audiobook Player for years and I love it. Best player out there and I've tried them all. Great job! Now for some suggestions on the few minor things that frustrate me :) 1. Please provide more flexibility in the library list view. Audiobooks can have tags that are needed to easily find the books in large libraries. I would like to be able to a) reduce/change the font size in the list, b) add certain tags to the list view (series, author/artist).

Recently set up my Plex to handle Audiobooks and needed a way to listen to them on my phone. Took me a minute to figure out how to get the Plex integration to work (If you click Book Download at the bottom, Plex is one of the options), and emailed support (Got a response in minutes! Which was AWESOME!). Anyways, super awesome app, well worth the $2 price!

Stay awake feature must be constantly re-enabled. You can tell the app to make the phone stay awake so the screen doesn't turn off, but that only lasts until you close or minimize the app. If you switch over to another app while listening, then switch back, it has to be turned back on. The fact that I can't be left on permanently is incredibly frustrating.

Sorry you are frustrated by this behavior. Since the keep awake feature can be a significant battery drain, it is disabled whenever the you leave the app or turn off the screen in order to prevent it being unintentionally left on. What I will do is add the ability to assign it as a gesture action to turn it back on. Email me to join the beta.

What's new

• Added new long press gesture action "Fast playback speed while pressed."
• Added new gesture action for keep awake.
• Added a 'clear all' option in position history, bookmarks, and book queue.
• Update several internal libraries
