Ratings and Reviews
This is a great program
I have been using this app for years to create audiobooks from my mp3 and CD audiobooks. It allows you to put things in order, add an image, and basically just makes it easy to create a great audiobook from the files that you already own. If you are creating from CD’s, you can have iTunes combine all the tracks into one before you rip the CD. It is an amazing program and has served me well for a long time.
Awesome App. I am always going to my local library and checking out audiobooks on cd. With this app, it is simple and easy to make an audiobook for iTunes. I have used it many times.
1. Load audiobook cds into iTunes (as songs).
2. Use Audiobook Wizard to create an audiobook from the song files.
3. Delete audiobook song files from iTunes.
The Info on the App says, complete with chapter markers.. but when it’s build its one continuous file… no was I can find to navigate by chapter..
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
