Wow! Surprisingly awesome

Lots of care and love put into this work. Today I realised I can rewind audio by triple tapping any button on my headset. This is a feature I just didn’t expect as it seemed quite specific but looks like the author thought of it well before I realised I wanted it.

I don’t understand why it’s free, tbh I would buy it for 5 to 10 dollars but grateful that it’s free!

Power of simplicity!

Amazing application with well designed UI, easy control, has all important controls! Highly recommend.

Almost perfect

Great app overall, easy to use.
Although I wish the rewind button was able to go beyond the beggining of the currently playing chapter. (Devs pls, if you are reading, that shouldnt be that hard to implement? It would make my day :) )
Also experiencing some crashing lately but nothing too crazy
