User reviews of Smart AudioBook Player
Makes my commute bearable, more so when delayed in traffic.

Ik ben aan het overstappen (of eigenlijk overgestapt) op deze Audiobook player. Deze heeft een functie die "Audiobook Player 2" ernstig mist: de timer wordt niet gereset op het moment dat je de telefoon beweegt. Dus de timer staat vast, en zodra je de tel beweegt bij het signaal, wordt deze wel weer gereset. Bij Smart Audiobook Player gebeurt dit meer 'smart' ;-) Dus zodra je tijdens de looptijd van de timer beweegt, zal deze gereset worden. Verder mist hij nog wel wat functionaliteit, maar dat is niet zo erg.

This is a great audiobook 'reader', highly recommended. But be forwarned, as of the latest update (march 25) this became a 30 day trial app. Full version can only be purchased from within the app.

I use this everyday for about 2 hours. Fantastic and very simple and easy to use. The ONLY thing I'd like to see is that player removes itself from memory after it has been paused for more than 5 minutes or so. Otherwise it stays resident and shows a paused icon in the notification tray. I used Audible app for a long time but have since moved over to using this and I have to say it's ace. Love the way it moves the point you listen back slightly when it has been paused, so you can remember where you were.

Still my favorite a year later. Premium features totally worth it, but the free version is just a awesome. Resume, elegant library management, good filetype support. Excellent. Thanks for this.

Great App! I absolutely love this application! I prefer it over the Audible app and wish it were possible to use this for the books I get from them.

SIX STARS! Best app for audiobooks... Highly recommended! After purchasing this app following the month-long trial, I have been greatly rewarded. Developer continues to make consistent updates like adding the option for multiple root folders, which, after the write-only to sd became the rule for kit-kat, will really come in handy. Until finding this app, I used music players for audiobooks, but they are not as useful, intuitive, sleek, or convenient as Smart Audiobook Player. Big ups to development. Thank you!
