Killer Feature: Cloud Storage Integration
This app ticks all of the standard boxes for an audiobook app, bookmarking, variable playback speed, sleep timer, but the cloud storage integration is it's killer feature. I can offload my huge library of audiobooks from my phone to Google Drive and still keep access to my entire library at any time. Also, playback speed is more granular than what's standard in Apple's app or other audiobook apps (I prefer 1.3x speed better than 1.25 or 1.5x).
What's keeping it from being 5 stars? It really needs search & filtering capabilities in both the local audiobook library, but especially in the cloud storage. Trying to find the 3 files that make up a single book by scrolling through my entire library is less than ideal. I'd be happy to help write user stories, or join in UAT or external beta testing for these features.
I never review apps. This one is amazing.
I've been wanting to write an app that would store audiobooks locally on my phone, then keep track of where I am in each one of those books. This app has done that in the most elegant way. You can start an http server on your phone at a location where you're on the same network as a desktop machine and upload files from that machine to the phone. It's painless and wonderful. My only complaint would be the file editing features within the app. For instance, I have one book that has a random chapter that wasn't marked correctly, so it's floating out on its own. Otherwise a perfect app! Thank you!
The best audiobook player app
It plays beautifully, handles album art beautifully, and it’s cloud integration between all platforms is perfect.
Stuff i have to dispute from other reviews: I’ve never had any cloud download issues, always been able to download the full books no problem (if something happens based on your connection you can back out and go back and download what didn’t get downloaded). 2. Never had any gap in playback, that’s either your files or settings.
To developer: Please add DARK MODE. Also add options to change UI color.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
