Rock solid but too basic

This player has a lot going for it. Clean look, never crashes, handles chapters well, is very nimble and responsive and putting the radio plays in a second tab is a clever secondary feature. Note that I expect you could put any books you like on the second tab as long as you added the tag in iTunes to those books.

Now to the shortcomings. Note that this is my most used Player but these are the things that it really lacks. First, it really needs a swipe forward/swipe back/tap on the artwork for pause/play to make it useful while driving. Looking for the buttons is just too distracting when behind the wheel or when walking in bright sunlight. Second, since the sleep timer is most useful when going to sleep, why is it impossible to see at night after you've taken your glasses off? There has to be a way to make it more visible. In addition, the shake to extend feature is useless to those of us who dock the phone for charging at night. I've suggested better ways that have been used in the past in players. Hopefully some Dev will someday listen :-). The ability to have the entire screen rotate 180 when in a car dash slot or in your pocket would also be very welcome.

All these things aside, it's probably the best $.99 I've spent in a long time. If you listen to a lot of books this is a nice app to have in your arsenal since it's few problems are acts of omission rather than commission. I'm not suggesting it gets bulked up with features like some other better known player but it does need a small set of features added.

Doesn’t import mp3 files

I wasn’t able to import my mp3 files to this app it’s basically useless. Contacted the developer but haven’t heard from him. Waste of money

Excellent for audio dramas!

The most recent update moved audiobooks and audio dramas into iBooks, which apparently has troubles with cover art and chapter titles. This led me to searching for an alternative, and to this program. Drawn in by the screenshots of the Big Finish Doctor Who Audio Dramas (which I frequently listen to), I decided to give it a try!

It works wonderfully well. It allows the dramas and books to be separated rather easily, which is great when you have a mix of both. They are then arranged by series, and it supports cover art and chapter titles for each individual episode properly (similar to the way iMusic did prior to 8.4). It is able to run in the background while other apps are opened (something that iBooks seems to have trouble with), displays and holds position properly, and allows seeking. When I went to try the app, it even picked right up where I left off in the episode I had been listening to through iBooks!

I can also use the controls in my car for it, which seemed to be a problem for some third-party apps. The chapter titles display properly on the car's radio as well. I don't usually use the Sync voice commands with books, so I didn't test too many. It did recognize the "Pause" and "Play" commands properly. Presumably others would function as well.

Definitely worth checking out if you listen to many audiobooks or audio dramas!
