This is a player only, you must provide your own audiobooks to play.
You can download books for free from sites such as https://librivox.org/, https://tantor.com, http://www.loyalbooks.com/, mp3 Overdrive books, or any place that provides DRM free audio.

Written with a focus on simple design and ease of use with an interface that puts your books on display and doesn't get in your way. Tap anywhere on the background to play and pause. Use gesture controls to skip forward or back. A slide out navigation drawer for when you need it. The player brings many convenient features such as downloading book cover art from within the app, sync position across multiple devices, set a time when the sleep countdown timer is automatically active if book is played, auto adjust sound levels, a play queue to auto start the next book when your current book finishes, add multiple library folder locations, and many more.

I listen to audio books every day and I wrote this player as a labor of love. I've spent many hundreds of hours developing this app, and continue to invest a lot of time in improvements and updates. If you enjoy audiobooks like I do, please give it a try. I hope you will enjoy using it.

This is an absolutely wonderful app. I've tried many other audiobooks readers before and this app easily beats them hands-down. It's a paid app, but more than well-worth the asking price. Don't let a few bucks deprive yourself from the best of the best. Navigating in the menus is a little bit tricky initially because of the numerous features not found on other apps and some functions need a long press but, once you understand the logic, it's a dream come true. Developer is very helpful and courteously answered all my questions within hours, even the most irrelevant and stupid ones because I am still using an old version (issues long solved in the new versions). 5 stars without any hesitation!

The only audio book player that feels designed for the task - easy to wind back and forth, step forward and back buttons and great library management. Used to use poweramp which is a good music player but lacks these specific audio book requirements, but for audio books wouldn't change back! Update 6 Jun 2015: I've just upgraded my phone and at last can use a micro SD to store media files. However, if I try to delete a book using the LAP Library/Delete I get a message saying Android 4 doesn't allow files to be updated on an external SD - however, I'm running Android 5.0.2! I can get round this by using an external file manager but it would be more convenient to be able to do it within LAP. ** Even without this it's still the best audio book player around ** UPDATE 27-Jul-15 Just updated to 4.3.13 and can now delete files from within Listen's library manager. The best got better!

This app always impresses me Every time I get a new audiobook I'm happy because I get to use this app. Two things though: .zip and or .zab file support would be nice, and setting the background aspect ratio to match that of the screen or displayable area while cropping would be super convenient
