The premium player for listening to audio books.

The free Lite edition now allows you to try your own audiobooks from the SD card.

Download thousands of free audio books from or purchase best selling mp3 audio book titles. 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 multiple 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 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 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 free Ambling BookPlayer Lite edition includes a time limited trial for playing your audiobooks on the SD card. The trial period starts over each time you start the player. For full functionality please get the Ambling BookPlayer Personal or Pro edition.

The Ambling BookPlayer Personal and Pro editions include additional functionality which is not included in the free Lite edition.

The Personal edition adds automatic play history tracking of hundreds of start, stop, and jump positions in each audiobook and unlimited playback of your audio books on the SD card.

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.

Whats new

    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.

So far app is AMAZING!! Best audiobook app I have come across that not only lets you have access to free audiobooks but also a very nice range of other audio books genres at reasonable prices. The app has a very nice style to look at and to navigate through :) So far this is my favorite (btw I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim & app works fine)

Aidan Hilt

It's nice... but The developer seems to really want us to buy. As in, the free version pauses every ten minutes. Not cool. The only reason I actually use it is because, other that it is a great player. Remove that little feature and its a five star app. However pausing is unnacceptable.

Not impressed. Shouldn't need to add books from the SD card. It should see my folder structure and play the chosen book from there. It's pretty obvious if you ask me

A Google User

One of my must have apps There are loads of free books, and if you are selective lots of good narrators. When I lay awake in the night this is the best way to pass the time. Brilliant app. You need to set up everything on-line through your browser and put books onto you own bookshelf to get the best from it.

Mickey P

Very easy user interface I love I can jump back a few secs. The way you jump back and forth love the preference. I wish you could add a volume booster and change the pitch and speed of play. Some narration is slow or recorded at low volume.

A Google User

Great service but needs free sleep timer Love this app and all the books available--I listen to it every night! Wish it had a free sleep timer, or pro was less expensive. But overall, great.

A Google User

Unusable. An AudioBookPlayer that stops every 10 min has no use at all. This is no 'lite' version, this is just a demo.

A Google User

How in #### am I suppose to see if this works for me when.the free ver won't let you access your sd card. Total BS! Waist my time! Thanks a lot!

A Google User

Can't use my add on SD card. So far it wont let me browse to my add on SD card that all my other Mp3 players have no problem with. Cant use it so far. :-( Correction. Found the back button hidden in the advertisement banner. Works.

David Williams

Very functional! Love it! This provides easy access to my librovox books and has excellent functions for rewind and far forward and saves my place for me. Love it!

A Google User

WOW ! I've been research audio books as well as libraries and this IS THE ONE! Can be moved to SD card therefore the data is not eating your internal memory. that is a huge plus. I'm about to get the Pto version. it's that good! Great job!

Denise Kuntz

This is an absolutely wonderful app!!! It works great and has many free audio books! I highly recommend for readers who do not have the time to read, just download to your cell phone or tablet and begin listening to your favorite books, authors or narrators! Also very easy to use!

A Google User

Used to be great I used to use this app all the time, but now I have to use two apps because this doesn't play my books - the lite version pauses every ten minutes. Not a big deal, it plays the free books just fine. However, I NEED a sleep timer so this app will stop the books after a set amount of time! And most importantly, I can't figure out how to exit the app. Thinking about uninstalling because of that alone. Nothing closes this app.

A Google User

Great audio book player. ..keep it on every phone so far! Great job.

A Google User

Great app I listen to books all the time on my way to work and home.

A Google User

Good Love it on my HTC EVO it is simple lots of free classic books to choose from and it plays the books good and does everything I want it too

leaann hagedorn

Love but won't stop Great app. I love the free books, the only issue it's I can't find the exit button to stop the app. Even task manager doesn't stop it.

A Google User

Brilliant This is just such a good app, thank you. Jennifer.

Sarah Camargo

Almost perfect App needs option to speedup voice. I listen to at least 5 books a month and would use Amblingbooks more if they had this option. The narrator sounds so slow and its very irritating. Everybody has different preferences and the speed of the voice makes a big difference in the listening experience.

A Google User

Thank you Great app The only one of its kind.

A Google User

Wtf You can't even play your own books from your phone without it pausing every ten minutes

A Google User

Love the app. I just wish it had play/pause control in the notifications pull down menu... and the ability to see the chapter art.

Jonathan Field

A pleasure to use Excellent audio book organization tools. Note that this is just a trial. Having tried it out, I was then very happy to buy the pro version for nine bucks. There's also a cheaper "personal" version that is still very good.

Donna NaQuin

Whaaaaaat? How am I supposed to know whether or not I like this program when it stops every 10 minutes?

A Google User

This is the greatest audio book player on the market. The selection of free books is amazing! I listen to them all the time and have barely scratched

A Google User

Xperia Arc Absolutely the best audio book app on the market!

A Google User

Used to be my favorite app until they made it pause every ten minutes to get you to buy the paid version.

A Google User

This is a."lite" version I have to pay to listen to a book I've already paid for? No thanks., there's plenty of free apps out there & you don't have to pay to listen to more than ten minutes. I suggest you rethink you're lite version.

Ben Cheung

no purchase no purchase without audio speed contol

A Google User

Poor Doesn't run a big range of codecs

A Google User

It is a good player, but I cant give more stars ca It is a good player, but I cant give more stars cause there is no feature to play and stop from headset and there are just english books! Please add high quality audiobooks. The prices are too high for the paid audiobooks. There is no way to move books to the storage cards

Mavril Broclaren

Ambling books Simple, easy. Does what it says on the box. Thankyou v. much.

A Google User

Tim M. Even the free version rocks! I listen while I nap& while I ride the bus to &from work.

Magdalena Sanchez

Love it! Easy to use and great audio.

A Google User

Too limited. 10 min play time is unacceptable. Skins are ugly too. All of them.

Ann Wegner

Best ever! I've tried several others, but this is my favorite. So much easier for me to use and download books. Love it!

Judith Frazier

Love Ambling Audio Books! I've only taken advantage of the free books. They have a good selection to chose from.

A Google User

Love this app. Everything I Wanted.

Daniel Watson

I've tried them all I've tried almost all of the free book readers out there. This one was the best and easiest to use.

A Google User

Pause! The audio pauses every 10 minutes...

A Google User

A great app. I loved this app I have listen to more books then I can say. I am upset that u are shutting down and wishing it wasn't so. Thank you

Sha-Ista Elskamp

Like this app .I like it that you can listen to a sample before downloading a book because some of the readers are horrible. I wish inn app purchasing was easier and that you didn't have to go online first.

Brian Szot

Best Well thought out. Saves your place accurately. Only wish it could locate audio books on its own without you having to search them out yourself.

Rick Paxton

Great for audiobooks Would like to see better mp3 tag support for titles/author. Minor tracking issue on skip forward sometimes. Allows for single or multiple file grouping and playback.

John Paul

I love this app I have been using this app for years and love it keep up the great work. Wish there were more free books though

Tamara S.

Trouble loading Menu - doesn't work I tried multiple times, including deleting and reinstalling the app and still don't get amenu.

Emily Rohwer

Won't load Used to have this app, worked great, loved it. This go round I can't get it to load anything, I never make it to the list to choose a free book! Updated the app and rebooted the phone...just goes in circles

Not compatible with Note 4 Ive been using this app for years and just got a Note 4 and i find i can not use this app in Note 4 when it comes to uploading my own audiobooks to the app. There is no menu button to allow you to upload your audiobooks. You can only upload what thry offer.

Rilla Oellien

Does NOT work!!! App says to create a login account via their website. Website does NOT have registration page. Filled in contact form to find out how to register and NO response. Try and fail to use app without signing in because only receive error messages. Why would anyone pay $5 or $8 for an app that does not work? Can anyone get this app to work?

Jayme Hancock

No longer works This used to be my go-to app for audio books, but it appears the developer has simply stopped supporting it. The controls no longer work and the book lists do not load.

Helga Momono

Not free at all This free version pauses every 10 minutes! It's called TRIAL not free. No features is OK for free version, but pausing is just annoying. Wasted my time!

A Google User

Does Not work Well. Rating this app would be much easier if it worked. Nothing will load. I even tried to visit the website, and IT wouldn't load.

A Google User

My favorite app evr Im so happy i downloaded so much 4 free its incredible the creators r awesome n kind to give us this app thank u so much!
