Wonderful, possibly the best

I love this dev’s previous app, MP3 Book Player, and was surprised that they made a new app. But I suppose there’s only so much you can do to upgrade an engine before you decide it’s just better to start a new one from scratch.

I love the new audio features, and I can’t imagine life without them now. This is the only app I will use for audiobooks from now on. I haven’t used it for music yet.

The only thing that is missing is syncing across devices. I have this on my iPad, but even with iCloud backup sync turned on, I had to airdrop the book to my iPhone, add it to my phone’s library and find the same position I was in earlier. I imagine that if I want to listen on my iPad again I’ll have to search for my “page” all over again. It also means I have to rebuild my library on each new app. It should have a folder in iCloud to sync to all devices from.

Excellent app!

Does just what it says it does, good value, and stable!

Love the fact it can download from the web as well!

Nice app but with a few issues…

I purchased ListenBook Pro and find the app very useful, with an elegant and well-designed interface. Not getting 5 stars due to a few glaring bugs that should be fixed: 1) the search function does not work (after typing the first character the keyboard hides itself) 2) the button located below the Play button does not work (I assume its function is to override “dark mode” system settings, but cannot tell for sure since this is not documented in the Help section which, by the way, pertains to a different app, i.e. MP3 Audiobook Player). Finally, it would be useful to be able to relocate book icons in the main window by long pressing and dragging them to a new position, as well as being able to manage files via the Files app. Hopefully, the developer will add these features soon.
