Used permissions:
Phone state: Used to pause during a call. Otherwise it would only be muted by the system.
Wake lock: So the playback isn't stopped when you turn off the screen. Also for some optional features like disabling the auto screen off during playback.
Disable keyguard: In case you only want to use the app's lock screen. (And not return to the default one afterwards.)
Write/delete external storage: For some internal files in \.MortPlayer, e.g. cached folder covers from ID3 tags and track order lists.
Internet: Ads (AdMob)
Boot completed: To reschedule the alarm clock after boot.
Tasks: For "StopService" activity, to avoid the system returns to player afterwards

Was my favorite audiobook player for ages but does not work well on newer versions of android. I currently am running Android 5.1.1 and am experiencing the following problems. 1. Play button does nothing if I had previously used this app. Have to reboot my phone every time I stop playback in order to start playing it again. Killing the app does not prevent this from happening. 2. Starting bluetooth speaker before starting the book often leads to my book starting from the beginning again. Only way to get around this is connect bluetooth speakers AFTER starting playback. 3. Randomly the app will just rewind 10 seconds or so for no apparent reason. I'd love to see these problems fixed for newer versions of android, I miss my favorite audiobook player.

Not bad I think a widget for it would make this even better
