Ambling BookPlayer Pro

Ambling BookPlayer Pro


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 audio book 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 audio book 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 groups books by Series, and 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. Bookmark all the locations you want to remember with optional text or audio notes. Sleep timer makes night time listening easy.

* Finding and listening to good audiobooks is simple and easy. You pick the book and the player automatically downloads it from the Ambling Books 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.

* Create multiple bookmarks to easily return to any place in the book. You can include optional labels, text notes and/or audio notes with your bookmarks.

The Ambling BookPlayer will quickly become your favorite player.

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.

User reviews of Ambling BookPlayer Pro
great app, but please add option for disabling the skip-back when receiving sms. I don't want to hear 5 minutes over again just because i have paused for a couple of minutes or received an sms! still a great app

Excellent, well-designed audiobook player that is very expensive but has great metadata support with covers, bookmarking, integration with headsets and bluetooth, etc.

Please add non-unicode support for MP3 file names and ID3 tags, like in Astro. Also widget has annoying bug, if the app is no running and you play the book from the widget is starts from the brggining of the chapter not from where it stopped last time. This makes widget useless.

Great app, definitly worth the pro version! I avidly listen to audio books and this app allows me to listen to saved books on my SD micro card. I love it's full audio book features like bookmarks and remembering where I am in my story after closing the app. Also, it stays in my pull down notification list even after I close the app. Overdrive doesn't do that.

Needs update I loved this app, but it hasn't been upated since 2011 and hasn't kept up with Android OS updates. Doesn't respond to pause on car system or headset. Galaxy S5.

A Masterpiece I have used this app since I bought my brand new SGS1. And even now on my Z2 it is brilliant, a multitude of features than mean I never miss an important plot point or funny moment. For future development I would love to see this replacing my podcast player with the ability to download from iTunes or RSS feeds as there just isn't a good podcast app out there.
