Important: this is a trial version. All the features of the full player version exist and can be evaluated. However, audio play pauses every 5 minutes, and cannot be resumed for fifteen seconds.

It is specifically tailored for audio book formats (M4A, M4B, MP3) and comes equipped with various features such as: identify chapters and covers in all types of books; maintain position and volume per book; partial speed control support (see below); allow numerous ways to change your position (from configurable step button to a “go to any position” dialog), bookmarks and more…

IMPORTANT NOTE: due to the differences in audio capabilities between different Android OS versions and device models, it is recommended you install the trial version before using this application, to ensure that your audio files are playable on your device:

• Reads cover images and chapter information from within audio book files.
• Parses WMA and FLAC (actual ability to play depends on your device).
• Maintain your last position and last set volume level for each book.
• Partial play speed control (IMPORTANT: requires purchase of Presto app and is limited to MP3 and OGG formats, will not work on M4B books).
• Allows bookmarks for each book.
• Configurable step buttons for quick shifts forwards or backwards.
• Easy to use “go to” dialog that will take you instantly to any chapter or position throughout the book.
• Home Screen Widget.
• Allows a one-click automatic download of covers for any book, or for your entire library at once.
• A configurable “lock” mode, which prevents accidental changes of position during play.
• Sleep Timer, pausing play after a specified time.
• Loads your entire library at once: offers a one-click scan of any folder tree on your device.
• The player screen offers a host of accessibility and experience improving features, including large-font and human voice indication (and approval) for your actions.
• Allows undoing and redoing any accidental change in position while listening.
For easy listening to your audiobook without looking at the screen (while engaged in some other action or for the visually impaired) it offers a range of accessibility features (including human voice indications) as well as an option to lock the player against accidental changes.

The player is highly recommended not just for audiobooks, but for any episodic format, such as music albums or podcasts.

A note on permissions:
• Internet access is only done at your express request to download covers (it is never launched without a user pressing the download cover button). No personal information is ever sent outside your phone.
• Access to your phone’s state is required to pause the player when a call comes in. No other use of this permission is made.
• Writing to the external storage is required if you choose to save the app’s data (library, images, etc.) on the SD card, instead of the device’s internal storage. No other use of this permission is made.
• Battery status and wake lock permissions are used to prevent locking the device (when configured by the user) when playing or when playing while connected to a power source.

Clunky No obvious way to get into library from first screen just play buttons - almost deleated it. When imported to library all tracks are listed individually, bye bye my folder system. Very hard to find anything in the resulting mess and no show for the m4b I wanted to play! Needs a folder view or list by artist options - did not see anything so this option is tucked away if it App needs to be more user friendly.

Paid app is WORTH IT

Great for audiobooks I tried every alternative for my audio books, and this is the best. The ability to speed up playback is the killer feature for me. Took off one star because the design is a bit too cartoony for me, but it's not a big deal.

Disappointing Terrible interface. Not sure how they feel justified in charging money for this thing.

by A Google User the 7/24/2012

Very slow to import books. Slow to import books. Why must I IMPORT books at all? Why can I not just play them? And... Why must it take up an addition 50 MB of space on my phone? It already exists on my SD.

Library management is cumbersome and very slow If the free version is how the paid version works I don't think I'll be buying. When you open the app you are asked to open files/folders and choose your library. You can "set as root" a folder.... and when you do so what would you expect, a library update right? Wrong, it does nothing. So you exit out, you set again, you rescan library (it says no songs removed...ah what? No songs are showing so why would you remove them? In short you have to add your library folders then wait for it to scan them, it it is verrrry slow. To scan the mp3 tags on a library of 3000 files it took about 20 minutes... tha'ts compared to when I used Smart Audiobook player or Audiobook Player 2 which displayed my full library in about 30 seconds initially. The settings dialogs use a "wheel" for values, with about 3pt type. How do you expect anyone above the age of 40 to read the settings??? This app has some nice features but needs work.
