Ambling BookPlayer Personal

Ambling BookPlayer Personal


The premium player for listening to audio books.

Download thousands of free audio books from AmblingBooks.com, or purchase best selling mp3 audio book titles, or listen to audio books that you already own. Never lose your place in an audiobook again thanks to the undo/redo bookmarking system.

Unlike music players which include audiobook functionality as an add on, the Ambling BookPlayer is designed from the ground up to be an audiobook player. The Ambling BookPlayer offers unique features designed to make audiobook listening easy, frustration-free and uncomplicated for everyone:

* Never lose your place again. Fully automatic bookmarking for every book, with a revolutionary intelligent bookmark history system that lets you undo or redo any change in your listening position. You can also view and return to hundreds of previous listening positions, effortlessly returning exactly to your past points of listening.

* Audio file management is completely automatic and hidden. All audio file transitions are seamless and invisible, and can even occur mid-chapter without you being aware of the transition. For books downloaded using the player you don't ever need to know the names of the audio files, how many there are, or which file is currently playing.

* Enjoy content using familiar Chapter divisions, not arbitrary file limits. Navigate and track your current position in both the chapter and the book.

* The library provides an uncluttered view of your Books (not the files). It also plays the books in a series in the correct sequence.

* The clean interface is focused on audiobook listening. Quickly jump back when you need to listen to something again.

* Finding and listening to good audiobooks is simple and easy. You pick the book and the player automatically downloads it from the AmblingBooks.com site ready for listening.

* Use Bluetooth car stereo systems and Bluetooth headphones to listen and control the audio playback. You just need to have your phone in your pocket.

The Ambling BookPlayer will quickly become your favorite player.

The Ambling BookPlayer Pro edition includes additional functionality which is not included in the Personal edition.

The Pro edition further adds extensive Library functions, organize your books by Series, save your Favorite Bookmarks with optional text and/or audio notes, and a Sleep Timer.

Fixed a problem where the BlueTooth media buttons could revert back to the default music player after another application temporarily took the audio focus.

When deleting audio files the .nomedia and image files are now removed, and the directory is deleted if it is empty.

An issue where starting the player sometimes went to the library screen instead of the play controls for the current book was fixed.

Great audiobook player, though a bit dated now Since I wrote my original review of this app years ago the landscape of player features has changed. There are some features that I would like to see added to Ambling. The top one is the ability to vary the playback speed. This is found in a number of other players, but noticeably missing in Ambling. As a result I'm changing my rating from 5 stars to 4. Once the features are brought up to par with other players I will be happy to change my rating back to 5 stars.

Great I've been using this app for more than a year now for playing my mp3 audiobooks. I would have liked for it to get a more "modern" look but other than that it's a great app that imports and plays audiobooks to perfection. I especially like that I can plug-in/unplug headphones to start/stop playback.

Excellent Audiobook Player When I switched from iOS to android the most disappointing thing about it was the lack of audiobook support. This app fixed that void and then some. I have been using it for years now and have enjoyed it greatly.
