Better than Audiobookbuilder!
I’ve been using Audiobookbuilder (which i paid $ for) for the past year until it suddenly stopped working (possibly it updated and I just have to restart or something but who knows). I came here and saw this was app was FREE so i gave it a shot and what do you know? It works just as good as ABBuilder—only FASTER! My only complaint is adjusting the length manually can be a minor inconvienience (you only need to do this if your book is over 24 hrs or unless you want it broken up into 2-3 smaller files) and I’m still not sure it it’s absolutely neccessary to use the “Command J” keys to “join” the all the chapters into a file before I bind it but whatever; I do it anyways… Save yourself some $ and try this app before you consider trying anything else (i really wish I had!).
Simple, Amazing, duration limit?
This app is stupidly simple! Which I mean, you just add the files into the box, hit bind, and it’s complete in like 10 minutes. It’s great for people who want to bind a bunch of audio files into a single file. But! why have a 24 hour limit. Most audibooks I listen to are well over 24 hours and it’s nice to have everything under 1 file. I can slide the slider after 24 hours but after that, anything beyond 24 hours cuts off the 24 hours and cuts it back down to the first 5 hours or whatever. Anyway. no more ranting. This app is definitely worth it
Wonderful tool for it’s function, simple to use with one purpose and no unnecessary frills. The only suggestion I could make to improve it would be a queueing feature, beyond that it’s perfect the way it is.
I’ve noticed a tendancy for the progress to not update giving the impression of a crash but this is only cosmetic as the app is working and will be fine if you just let it go.
