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 or 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.

    The perfect audiobook player, and it's not easy to get an app review like that from me. I use it daily and it has every feature I could ask for.

    I like the increased volume on this player as I use a blue tooth headset which is not noise canceling and listen to audio books . They come through better.

    Developer is very responsive and quick to fix bugs. No other player will handle my 40+ hour mp3 files.

    Some apps you come across are good enough to keep updated. Some apps are good enough to look out for and snap up if they are free for a short while and you pat yourself on the back for spotting them when they are free. A very few apps are worth paying for, no really. This is one of them.
