For fast and friendly support:

This is a player only, you must provide your own audiobooks to play.
You can download books from sites such as,, mp3 Overdrive books, or any place that provides DRM free audio.

Written with a focus on simple design and ease of use with an interface that puts your books on display and doesn't get in your way. Tap anywhere on the background to play and pause. Use gesture controls to skip forward or back. A slide out navigation drawer for when you need it. The player brings many convenient features such as downloading book cover art from within the app, sync position across multiple devices, set a time when the sleep countdown timer is automatically active if book is played, auto adjust sound levels, a play queue to auto start the next book when your current book finishes, add multiple library folder locations, and many more.

I listen to audio books every day and I wrote this player as a labor of love. I've spent many hundreds of hours developing this app, and continue to invest a lot of time in improvements and updates. If you enjoy audiobooks like I do, please give it a try. I hope you will enjoy using it.

    This is hands down the best audio book reader in the entire store. I have tried over a dozen different apps and this one is by far the best. Great customization and features

    Amazing attention to convenience feature details. There are so many little features in this app that only an audiobook lover can realize and implement. The dev clearly knows every sweet convenience tweaks to make the app a joy to use. Simple, functional, and very very robust. Definitive Android audiobook player.

    Everything you'd ever want from an audio book player. The only thing I'm missing is the small 'beep' whenever you pause/unpause.
