Could be 5 star... but Every so often during Bluetooth playback in the car the book stops and will not resume. When I hit play it immediately pauses itself. Sometimes I have turn the stereo off and on or reboot the phone, and some times even that doesn't work. When that happens I have to plug in using an aux cord. Disappointing. If it wasn't for this it would be 5 stars.

Shane Mercer

Absolutely superb This is by far the best audiobook player out there. Plays .m4b files flawlessly and saves playback location. I really wish the dev didn't fold to the paranoid people worried about the read_phone_state permission, although the fix is easy, if a little inconvenient.

Rajeev Lakhera

Awesome !! Absolutely love this app, it makes listening & managing audio-books very convenient & pleasurable. So many features packed in so small an app. One feature request... pls add the ability to go to next bookmark position with reference to the present position while in playing. Thanks for the fantastic app !!

Tanner Sheahan

Best I've found yet I like this app, works well. Quality and features are good. Only suggestion is to add a jump-back button in the notification bar controls. It would often be nice, especially for longer mp3's, to be able to quickly and easily jump back 30 seconds instead of going back to the beginning of the track without opening the app itself.

Ahiel G.

Great app Best lectures and book player. My favorite app ever! The Too bad there is no 10 stars... The developer very kind and helpful!

Alex Hedin

Best Audiobook App Great app. Very easy to use and does what you need. Awesome!!! Thanks for the hard work.

Kylie Wheeler

I use it everyday I use this app every day and I have yet to find a feature I want that's not available. Awesome app

John Fassbender

Nice app Great app for Audiobooks. My phone definitely needs the "Read phone status and identity" patch. It's very annoying when the audiobook still plays when someone calls.

Martin Stark

Works like a charm Especially like (and make copious use of) the playback speed option.

Peter Streef

Very good app. Does everything you'd want it to do, across devices!

Tyler Wood

Wonderful application! Hi, Great work on this app! Works great with talkback (for us visually impaired people that is a huge plus), does everything I want and then some. I use it for podcasts as well as audiobooks. Thank you!

Jake Shidler

Best one I've found. Only audio book player I've found that did everything I was looking for in an app

dylan coyle

Perfect for learning languages One of the only apps I've spent money on. Totally worth it :D

Brad Wright

Been using this app for over a year with no complaints. Simple app that does what it's supposed to.

John Kempf

Best audio book player I've found Dev is responsive and updates regularly

Ned Pitlock

Love it Only suggestion is a matching PC program that syncs when loaded with identical files.

Shalom Bar-Eretz

Simply great Been using for a long time and is the best thing on my phone. The paid version is worth it. No fuss great features. The ability to change the playback speed is great but if the speed could be increased even further to at least 3x speed it would be perfect

Mark Fryer

Perfect This app does everything I hoped it would and more.

Jeremy DeMitchell

Perfect I think the read phone state permission was perfectly valid and removing it only bogs down a great dev with unnecessary additional work that will slow down new updates.

Marko Simovic

All in one The only bookreader that has all the features I need.

Amy Coffman

Fantastic. This app is totally worth the couple bucks for the full version. Every aspect is well thought out, but my favorites are the smart pause and speed controls. So great!

Sander Bos

Absolutely perfect After using it for 3 months I haven't found a single annoyance or missing feature. Just awesome!

Nick Lemke

Love the app Use it every single day. Can't recommend enough.

Jonathan Knight

App has started shutting down unexpectedly I have started having a problem where the book will play for about 15 seconds and then the app shuts down. Then I have to go back and reopen and press play again. It takes 5-7 times to keep the app running stable. Not sure if it is my phone or the app. I have tried all the decoders and it happens regardless of which one is used.

Daniel Rice

Dear.. Anyone who complained about "read_phone_state" permission: You're a special kind of paranoid. Bravo. And, hey-- i just love your tin foil hat, where did you get it?

Shah Ankit

Super! Has got very good features and works very well

Scott Brenna

Awesome By far, this is the best audio book reader when you already have your own content.

Daniel de Mendonca

Amazing! Still the best audiobook player out there! Full version features well worth it!

Nicholas Kanhai

Worth the price This audiobook player is everything I ever wanted. It keeps your spot on its own, it has bookmark options, you can skip ahead or back if you missed anything,and its interface is simple and easy to use. I paid for the full version after the trial and I would recommend it to anyone.

Marcin Polasik

Everything you need. Just perfect. Thanks

john doe

My most used app Your book reader is the best that I have come across. The only suggestion I could possibly make would be the addition of loop points which could be very valuable with academic books. Still the best reader regardless. Thanks

Eric Crescimano

Removing read phone state was a bad move I don't know who complained about permissions, but that one was necessary. Now I have to manually install a special version with each update so that I can take calls during playback. This five star app is crippled now.

David Krall

Very good application, however a flat UI and icon update would be great so the app would fit the overall style of the upcoming 5.0 update.

Mark Wilko

Hate the new two version setup The new two version setup is a nightmare to deal with and ruins a great app.

sun bathin

I love it!! I needed this really bad

Gonzalo Gomez

My favorite app Thanks for keeping this app up to date and fixing bugs! GREAT APP

John Demeny

Just what I was looking for!

Debbie Engala

Love this app I use this instead of overdrive to listen to my borrowed ebooks, and it allows me to finish listening to the book even after it expires (if you do not delete it from overdrive). That has helped me finish those books without having to wait to check them out again. I love the sleep feature and auto repeat after stopping or interruptions.

Andy Grey

Back to fantasticness Had some stability problems but I think they were from my end. Great app, fantastic functionality

Benjamin Hill

Fantastic audio book player! Please add the ability to hide the chapter back/forward buttons! Very frustrating to accidentally hit these buttons with books that are not split up into many chapters. I know there is a lock button, but this makes it difficult to jump back/forward in small increments if something is missed. Great app overall, developer seems engaged and consistently implements improvements!


First 5 star review I've ever given This is the first time I've found an app that has all the features I want. It might not be as snazzy looking as some other players however for audio books this is perfect. 1. Import your own and it will detect and display the files. 2. Bookmarks are easy to use 3. Has a widget for easy access to controls 4. The price for the full version, $2, is very reasonable and borderline generous considering the no fuss no muss, does exactly what it says on the tin, no problem app. Thank you developer.

Thomas Jensen

The best there is I've tried a lot of audiobook players and this is by far the best one imo. I have a long drive to work, so I listen for a few hours daily, and the app has never crashed on me or let me down in any way. It's rock solid and with all the features you can imagine. The dev is very active and the app is thus constantly being updated. If you're not already using Smart Audiobook Player, you're missing out!

Pelle Jacobs

Without any doubt the best audiobook player on the play store right now. I have used the free version for almost 6 months. I upgraded to the full version mainly for the ability to speed up and to easily navigate in chapters. If it would be possible to import premade character lists (eg. for game of thrones), that functionality might be useful. Overall, awesome app! I use it everyday for several hours :)

james lash

best audio book player. period. great for my graphic audio collection. i just paste them into the correct folder and i can now listen with ease. i do wish that there was a way to sync my location between devices, like audible does. i listen via my phone when on the road or taking a walk, but switch to my tablet when at home.

Michael Lesser

Maddening interface Also will not recognize my upgrade purchase. Hate this app. Hate hate hate it.

Nick Walton

Great app the only thing missing would be to default the book cover options. I always have to select embedded option manually

Murtaza Family

Found the perfect audio book player After using this for almost a year, I bought the pro version, add its totally worth it. Allows independent bookmarking of all audio books, whether they're in one file, ore spat over a thousand. Also allows cover download of books

Steve Tallon

This is one of the best, if not the best audio book reader on the a Android platform its free of glitches and a pleasure to use. I had the free version for quite a while then decided to pay to upgrade. Well hey its worth it.

Dave Lemon

Great but one issue Playback will randomly pause when I use headphones. Sometimes this happens very frequently other times only once or twice in and hour. I thought it was an issue with the headphone pause button so tried several other pairs and found this to be an issue even without a pause button. Other apps (Google music, pandora) are not having this problem. No issue at all when using Bluetooth, just wired headphones.

Zach Lathouris

For audio book lovers Great app with features you see on 6 dollar apps for free. No annoying ads either just a really solid app. Thanks devs

Denise Christine

Great App I purchased the full version to have bookmark capabilities. Worth the low price.

Steve C

Great app Perfect audio book player! One request though... Any chance of adding cloud bookmarks? If I could backup my position on my books on drive or dropbox, I could listen on my tablets and other devices also. Just a thought.

mitch petronijevic

Best player hands down Always updated, never any problems. Haven't found a better one in years.

André Dankert

Best audio book player Good features and well thought through. I'm enjoying the almost continuous choice of playback speeds and the well calibrated setback when resuming. Excellent work!

Scott Phillipp

Excellent I love this app. The only thing I suppose I could ask for is a volume normalizer. That way the quite parts aren't drowned out by the louder ones.

Daniel Pieper

Love it Simply the best player for audio books. Cannot be any better!

Kimberley B

Game changer, finds and indexes on its own Up until this point, I was an Ambling Books Pro user, but this app is a game-changer changer. This has made it so easy to index and add books I've added to my SD card or downloaded to my phone. The addition of the sleep timer is wonderful. There really is nothing else I would want except, like another user asked, for us to be able to hide the chapter buttons. I don't want to accidentally hit one and skip ahead in a story.

Mulia Marzuki

Great. Title says it all. Saves your location even after reset of phone.

Damien Moneti

Perfect audio book player I've been looking for a player with bookmark option for a long time. This one have it and more other useful options. Great job!

Hassan Shah

Absolutely perfect !!! For trail period only after that many important features get locked.

Matt Albert

Active dev, great app Great app, constantly being updated with new features and all kinds of nice to have customizations.

Thomas J Ryan

Fantastic folder based player I used to use mort but it became unreliable/unpredictable over time. This player has great features on the free version, but the paid version is way better. If you store your books in individual folders, Smart audiobook player is for you. A++

Felipe Quintana

Simple yet full of useful features This app has all the features I'll ever need to listen to my library of audiobooks. Widget is very useful for continued listening. I use this on a daily basis.

Jeremy DeMitchell

Was perfect, now even better This is literally my favorite app and dev because he made the app do exactly what you would want an audiobook app to do. All the updates done make it beyond perfect. I bought the $2 pro version mostly to show my support to the dev.

ola kjellsson

Totally Fantastic app. The one on my phone I can't live without. I've tried all audiobooks players and this is by far the very best. The developer keeps coming up with new improvements to interface and functionality. Awesome app and developer!

Robert Moore

I really like the accuracy, the volume boost function and it plays very clearly. The only drawback is the emulator. If there was some way to control how much of the book is emulated at one time, it would not cause my system to slowdown so much. On shorter books it does not cause a hassle but on larger books, like Stephen King's Dark Tower series, It eats up a significant portion of my meager 8G of device resources. Other than that this is a great app!

Kristen Bessant

5☆ Best audio book on the market, I recommend paying for premium! Crashing on S6 edge but I think this is more a problem with the phone than with the app.

Ramiro Tostes

Excelent! Everything you will need on an audio book player.

Heather Coombs

Fantastic audio book app I've looked at several apps and this one has out all. If you listen to audio books on your phone, you need this app. Great job.

Sherrill Taylor

Note 2 I've tried them all and this is the best audio book reader app in the market. This app is constantly updated and bugs are fixed. Try it, you won't be disappointed with it.

Dedi Basel

Best audio book player. How about sorting started books by last played?

Brian Rueger

The Best I am an avid audiobook listener and I can attest that this is probably the best audiobook player out there.

Duane Traylor

Works! Not sure what the pay for version gave me but this app is so good I wanted to thank the dev.

Tyler McGahee

Simple and reliable. Auto-finds your content on the phone and keeps track of your location in each. Very solid interface. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an Audiobook player.

yolanda shabazz

Very good app Does exactly as advertised. Thank you.

Loren Smith

Love it with one exception I haven't learned how to disable the autoplay when entering "driving mode" with "Moto" for Android

Mayuresh Kadu

One of the best app out there After having tried nearly a dozen apps to specifically play audio books (not music), this one emerged the clear winner. It works on Bluetooth, headphones and just off the phone. Battery consumption is as expected. And is very easy to use. Feature wise that's just no other app to match. Kudos to the dev for excellent work. The one star missing is for the UX improvements that could be made - starting with move to material UI.

Veer Maharaj

You could spend money on a hooker, but that's only good for an hour, and after you'll be wondering how you got that rash. Orrrrrrr, you could get the best audio book player app on Android and have months and months of entertainment. Only features missing are multi device progress sync and chrome cast support. Otherwise it's damn well perfect. Update, multi device cloudsync is here. WOOOOT


I used to use mortplayer, never going back! This is a wonderful app. Looks great simple clean. All the options you want without too many extras. It doesn't try to do too much. Thanks!

Ghalia Said

My fav but.. I love this app and uninstalled any other audiobook players for this one but unfortunately no matter how much I want to buy the full version I cant.. it takes me to the payment method and gets stuck there.. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no use.. please help.. update.. it turned out that the problem was in the google play app store.. the web site worked fine in registering the payment method and I purchased the full app...

Anish Parmar

Perfect working app that could use a facelift. This app does everything I want it to do. It is almost perfect. The only thing that bothers me, is the way it looks. A modern update into material design would earn this app a 5 star rating from me.

Eric Bright

Extraordinary! I've used many other audio-book players in the past, dedicated MP3 players, and many PC applications for that purpose. None of them come close to this application in any way. This one seems to be designed by an audio-book lover for other audio-book lovers. The programmer truly understands what he's doing & how an audio-book player is used by its users or else he would have made yet another MP3 player. Are you an avid audio-book listener, you owe it to yourself to try this. This app hardly uses any battery.

Adrian Ianas

Amazing app. This app is amazingly good when comes to functionality, a nice design is the only thing that misses. I'm thinking to buy the full version...Do you have plans to implement the Material design in the future updates?

Lionel Garris

Best Audio book App EVER!! I use this app for hours a day. I love it. It works perfectly and is problem free the majority of the time.

Alexander Gasenko

Best App on the market for audio books Has skip 1m and 10sec back and forward buttons. Saves your position for multiple books so you can skip between books without losing your place. And much more. Specifically designed to play audio books.

Danielle Jordan

Just what I was looking for This is an incredible app. It has everything I needed to not require a separate device for my books.

Thomas Purnell

The best player by far Sleep timer with shake to keep playing feature alone makes this the best app on the play store for me. Straightforward, reliable, does exactly what it says it does. Can't beat it

Ahiel G.

Great app Best lectures and book player. My favorite app ever! The Too bad there is no 10 stars... The developer very kind and helpful!

Ariel Gonzalez

The best app just put a . Before ur root folder that way ur books don't mix with ur music

T. Czerwonka

Excellent! This is the best audiobook reader I have found. The speed-up is invaluable and the auto-review on restart is implemented well.

A Google User

Excellent. Best AUDIOBOOK player. Does what it says. Fantastic feature set considering it's price tag. I bought it. I will always pay for software that works as advertised and fulfills my needs. Love Cloud Sync - makes using multiple devices SO much better. Thank you. Highly Recommended.

Truegrit Scott

Almost perfect.. My new favorite. As a big audio book listener I'm impressed. Used Mort player for years but lately have only been using smart.. The sleep timer with shake to extend is a great feature. Overall great app.

Martyn Kludsky

Not much to say. Just the best audiobook player, period. Edit after a year: Wish I could give more stars! Now with cloud sync!!!

Eddie Zhen

The best audio book app. No junks This is by far the best audio book app. It is simple, easy to navigate. Best of all, no spam.

Василий Кичеев

good but... good app. need to make a choice change interface language. for example Spanish or Russian or German would be cool

Liviu Mateescu

Worth to the last penny This guy hones his app as if it were a jewel. Well, it _is_ a jewel. Done to perfection, and helping you to listen to your favourite books. Thank you for the many hours of delight.

ola kjellsson

Totally Fantastic app. The one on my phone I can't live without. I've tried all audiobooks players and this is by far the very best. The developer keeps coming up with new improvements to interface and functionality. Awesome app and developer!

Alec Kinghorn

Great free, but paid is even better Couldnt believe such a no-nonsense functional app was free! Bought it after a while to access the additional features and don't regret it one bit.

A Google User

The best I've been using this audio book player for years, I still believe this ticks every single box ?➕➕➕

Dakota Pitts-Price

Worth it Love it use it every day :) thanks. OMG CLOUD SYNC!!!

Simon Wall

Audio book reader PLUS! Does everything you think it should, plus all the stuff you didn't know you needed. Mature well maintained product.

Virna Aryanita

Best app ever!!! There's no single regret in me for buying the full version

James Sipp

+A Exactly what you need in a audio book reading app. Simple, clean, developer updates and adds new features often.

Johnathan Perkins

Simple and Powerful Does everything I need and a few things I didn't know I'd love. Smart Audiobook Player does its job well

John Reeves

Best audiobook player This is the best audiobook player I have came across. It's worth purchasing. I haven't looked in a a couple of years since I found this one. Haven't had to.

Alex V

Great Please update the icon, at least remove the white box

Peony Quince

Great player Full version is worth $2 price tag.

mSdubya Bme

Not working on Samsung note 3 I've used this app for years on my Nexus 4 with no problems. It's an amazing app. For the past couple of days I've been trying to add books to my Note 3 it's not working. I've added books in the past and the app worked. I uninstall and reinstalled the app, it will not work. I also notice that there it's an in app purchase now. I don't remember from a previous version. Unfortunate for me I can't get this app to work, nor can I find a replacement app. Msdubya

Sergey Kokorin

All you need for audio reading For some multifile books stops after each file.

Reynard Bradypod

Great app. I simply love this app. Looking forward to trying out the new cloud sync feature. The volume boost button and the equalizer controls work great for those poor-quality recordings, especially from older books on tape that sound like someone put their computer mic up against their boom box to "digitize" them. I have a couple of Terry Pratchett books like that and with the equalizer controls on this app can make them halfway listenable. Awesome!

Aryan Stanley

Excellent, but a few freezes Generally excellent. Does exactly what I want an audio book app to do. Very occasionally, however, the app freezes and I need to either wait for Android to close it or to manually shut it down from settings. Not a frequent occurrence however. (LG G3)

Christi L

Worth the price If I could give Alex, himself, 5 stars ... I totally would. One of the very few apps I recommend to anyone. I love having only one device to listen to my audio books everywhere, in the car, at work, wherever!

Taras Ukrainchuk

Perfect! Being able to set your own directory is the best thing and it reads everything so well!


Works great except when you set to play next book it reverts to default and shows library instead, most annoying

Bogdan Marculescu

Great app, but needs a redesigned icon Please, please, please change the icon so I can proudly keep this app on my home screen. :)

Nebojsa Tanasijevic

Practical and cheap Makes it very easy to listen to audiobooks, lots of options and features -> it is a great value for the price you pay, i recommend it!

Phil Klucher

Great app As a truck driver i listen to a lot of audiobooks. I have tried many audiobook players and this is by far my favorite. Very clean and useable UI.

Kate Maeda

Not just easy to use I use the Audible app (which lacks a great deal but most of my audiobooks are in that format) most of the time but I tried this several months ago for a couple of books I only had as mp3. Then I went back to audible and didn't touch this again for months. When I needed it again many of the juicier functions were fine and I was faced with paying for the full version. Imagine my surprise when I got that array of features for $2! Try it for free and then support this great app. Just wish it played Audible!

Alain Fleitas

Bluetooth headset play/pause is not working anymore since a long time now. I was hoping it would get fixed but it still hasn't. Also it won't play after taking a hangouts video call. "Can't play now" is the message it shows. If you encounter these issues I recommend you to switch over to acme-android audio book player which is working fine with BT and with a more elegant interface. Update: Android 5.1.1 with Photive PH-BTE70 headphones if if you would like to fix it for other users.

Lindsay Delsin

Love it! Really great app. It's simple, easy to learn and use, and has a bunch of great features (for example bookmarking) that make listening to a book that much better.

Martin Stephenson

Great, just missing Chromecast support. Great audiobook player. I wish books downloaded via Audible could be played in this app. The only thing missing is Chromecast support like Beyondpod has for podcasts. I'd happily pay another in app purchase for Chromecast support.

Eric Bright

Extraordinary! I've used many other audio-book players in the past, dedicated MP3 players, and many PC applications for that purpose. None of them come close to this application in any way. This one seems to be designed by an audio-book lover for other audio-book lovers. The programmer truly understands what he's doing & how an audio-book player is used by its users or else he would have made yet another MP3 player. Are you an avid audio-book listener, you owe it to yourself to try this. This app hardly uses any battery.

Dale Ross

Slick, impressive App I find this app in most ways out performs many of the book company apps. It retains accurate place holders regardless of the type of files I throw at it and is easy to configure. Well done.

karen willloughby

Audio books Fabulous that it remembers your place!! Other readers i have had don't and its annoying trying to find your place! Well done!!

Jack Kiefer

Just about perfect! It's simple. It works. And it works well! I'll be buying the pro version. The UI can look a little cluttered sometimes when you're listening to books that have a lot of text on the cover, but I feel a little bad mentioning that because the app functions flawlessly.

David McGarry

Straightforward and simple audiobook player For listening to audiobooks you already own this app is recommended. I'm getting tired of apps that try to do everything - this does what I need it to do... Play audiobooks.. Easy to navigate and just the right amount of configuration options. Thumbs up.. Worth buying if you need this sort of thing. Definitely value for money. This will be one of my most used apps.

Zack Mooney

Awesome Best audio book player I have used over the years. It's solid, dependable and has lots of great features.

Hemant Hegde

WYSIWYG An excellent app that does exactly what it says, with no extra nonsense. Thank you! Also, for those who are wondering, this is better than Akimbo. I should know, I paid for it.

Jaq Delaney

Best audio book player The one app I couldn't be without. Upgraded to the paid version for the audio boost which has been a boon on numerous occasions.

Bo Jamison

Great audio book app Love this app, makes listening to my mp3 books easy! Well worth a couple of books for the pay version

Matthew Willis

Nothing Like It This is basically the best that I could ask for. There is no app like this, at all!

Dean Hoppenrath

No competition I have tried a few audiobook apps but this one is head and shoulders above the rest. Pay the $2 and get the full version. My only complaint is that it could use Chromecast support

Clay C

Excellent - A Favorite App Recent update small, but shows a commitment to useful features and continued development. Built-in eq sometimes very appreciated, as is the customizable sleep feature. But those and others are small extras - at base it simply does everything one could want in such an app in a straight-forward way that makes additional features easy to get to but not at the expense of interface clutter. Worth supporting.

Peter Xenos

Time for a new logo Great app but get a graphic artist to redo your icon (yeesh)!

Vihang Idnani

The best audiobook player around! This is by far (miles) the best audiobook player on playstore. If you like it, please support the developer like I've. This offers the best features like audio amplification and playing speeds for slower narrative books.

Tamsin-Elizabeth Van Cartier

Awesome By far the best audiobook player available. The free version did everything I could hope for, but I paid for it anyway because I was so impressed I wanted to support the developer. All the added features in the paid for version are like cherries on a cake. I love this app <3

William Sconzo

Amazing app This is the best audio book reader ive found. I listen to tons of audio books at work and this has every feature needed for a hassle free experience. Thanks for making my favorite app.

Nate Okun

One of the best and well updated apps Great app, bugs fixed quickly, new features ALL the time, but never bloated! Just great!

d moony

Prob with merge I followed directions, but couldn't get it to work. Help please.

Denis C

Great app Been using it for a while now. Easy to use and works great. Zero complaints

Rory Wallwork

One of the best This is one of the most useful apps out there, and definitely one of the most well-maintained. Thank you!

Richard Jones

Does exactly what it says on the tin Exactly what I was looking for. Some very good features. Thanks folks

Gia Thanh Vuong

New icon please I love everything about this app. But the author should consider a new icon for the app. The current one is so antiquated. It looks like a Bible app icon.

Fedor Vinogradov

The app can't put .opus files in folders on its own. No multi-selection of books.

Raspal Dhesi

Best audio book player ever Can we get a new icon update? Maybe like a martial icon...

Phil Callihan

Phil Callihan Good solid audiobook player. This is my replacement for Ambling audio player Pro.

Beatriz Lopez

Doesn't work I can't search up books

Sara Estlander

Works beautifully and has all the functionality you may want, and then some. I'd give it six stars if I could.

Tyler Marks

Very grateful Not much more you could ask for from a free app. Good UI, easy to use. Only had a few troubles on my old phone with freezing but that's all gone now. Thank you.

Michael Stender

Best out there Apple has nothing like this app.

Belinda Scullion

Great app It even has a sleep timer! ☺ One request - the option to stack multiple unrelated files into one audio book instead of moving files to their own folders.

Matt Allison

Works great Easy to use and will work when minimized, I've had no issues except it's paused itself on very rare occasions.

John Gardeniers

Superb. I use it to listen to my audio books while travelling to and from work. I use the defaults settings because, unlike some other apps, those settings are sensible and for me they need no tweaking.

Nathan Able

Worth paying for the full version I tested it the full version for the 30 day trial. When I got the notice that the trial was over I didn't hesitate to pay the $1.99. I am an avid audio book listener. I wanted something that worked as well as listening on my ipod touch. This app is a perfect replacement to the ipod. I actually think it's better. I have only had one error type. On only a few occasions playback didn't start when hitting play. Closing the app completely resolves it so it's hardly an issue to worry about.

Patrick McGuire

So great I fired Google play. This app is now my go to for manually downloaded podcast and audio books. Love the ability to pause multiple files and continue where I left off. Love the fact that it rewinds about five secs after every unpause so I never miss anything. Love the 10sec and min forward and back buttons. Also love the overall runtime counter but also the chapter runtime counter. Example Meaning you know theres 3 hours left in the book but 10 mins left of the chapter.

Jason Baker

Highly Recommended If your listening to books at all this app is a must.

Chaim Preiser

Great app I love this app, it is easily the best audiobook player. The only reason I gave 4 stars is that the playback speed can only be increased up to x2.5. I switched from a different player that enabled speed increase up to x4 and I frequently used speeds higher than x2.5. Other than that, this app is awesome :)

Joseph White

Best app out there and much better than the apps from the big names. A few awesome features that I'd love if you could add. Playing books from Google Drive. That is where I store my books so then I could easily listen between multiple devices. Standalone wear playback. I don't know if this is possible, but playback from the Android Wear watch storage would keep me from taking my phone with me when I run. Thanks for all the hard work!

Eric Bright

Extraordinary! I've used many other audio-book players in the past, dedicated MP3 players, and many PC applications for that purpose. None of them come close to this application in any way. This one seems to be designed by an audio-book lover for other audio-book lovers. The programmer truly understands what he's doing & how an audio-book player is used by its users or else he would have made yet another MP3 player. Are you an avid audio-book listener, you owe it to yourself to try this. This app hardly uses any battery.

Jose Anguiano ii

Awesome The best and easiest to handle book player ever!!! It just keeps getting better!!!! 1/25/15 and keeps getting better 9/12/15 keeps getting better

Niranjan Krishnamurthy

Great app Remembers where you last stopped. Goes back 10 seconds if you missed something. Scans your entire library for audio books and organises them. Allows you to increase speed if the narrator is too slow. Highly recommended.

Gehri Grimaud

The player is excellent. The "folder view" doesn't work the way I expected though. Currently no matter what option you select you get all of your titles on one screen. I have all my books in folders by author, then series (if any) then by title. I need to be able to browse into a sub menu and then only see titles or folders in that sub-folder. I have a 200 GB sim card and have hundreds of audiobooks that I have been collecting for years. There are just too many to see on one screen at one time.

Krzysztof Cebula

Awesome! The best audio book player you can get! Without it, my everyday road to work would be complete waste of time. If you, like me spend so much time in public transport you just have to try it. A good book is the best way to start a day. :)

chris chambers

Thank you, Developer Brilliantly designed. Very happy to find this app, I was using a miserable music player to play m4b files. Thank you very much! Any chance at a new, more material design icon?? **Edit** Dev responded immediately (thanks Alex) and already came up with something. Great dev, best app in category!! 5*+++

Brian L

Best app on the market I love this app and use it every day. I would have rated it stars if it had audio normalization for books. I have books where the audio level is pushed to distortion levels one track and whisper quiet the next. If they would add a normalisation feature i would gladly rate this five stars. EDIT: The author contacted me and stated that he is working on implementing this feature. Five States for great customer service. Would buy again.

Ghalia Said

Font size Hello.. is there a possible way to make the font smaller in the characters part. Especially for books that has soooo many characters going up and down the list because the font is big is bothersome.. I know its not really an issue but to further perfect this awsome app.

Stephen Wood

Perfect! Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Every feature I need is there. Interface is excellent also. Just great!

Amir All

The best. Just need a new UI design. I love it. It has awesome features, magnificent quality and lovely experience. The only set back is the old messy UI. :)

Enrico Perera

Almost perfect I dislike the file manager to search for audio books. Could be visually better. But that's a minor issue that does not take away from the core functionality.

Da'ad Aoun

Amazing The best audio book player I've found. Fantastic and easy to use.

John Kennedy

Excellent! Have used this app for a long time, had zero problem paying the £1.56 for the full version. Audible wish their app was half as good as this, truly well done sir

Vermund Vetnes

Wma files? I have an audio book in wma format, but it will not play. Will this format be supported in the future? Otherwise it's a good app.

Dan Z

Great app with one big annoyance I like this app. I use this app. But it keeps on playing whenever I receive a phone call. The developer won't fix it in the Google Play release. (He has another .apk somewhere with this bug fixed, but I often forget to install it so my phone calls still get interrupted sometimes.) Other than that, this player does what it's supposed to with a simple UI and useful options.

George Exon

Was a great app Was fantastic for a long time but I'm getting alot of stuttering and skipping all of a sudden even started pausing and unpausing rapidly at one point don't know what's going on.

Jonathan Meimaridis

Still Love It I bought the paid version and I have no regrets. This app is incredibly useful. It solves virtually every inconvenience that you come across when listening to audio books through standard media players. The app is regularly updated by the developer as well. Keep up the fantastic work.

Rich Tygart

Wow! This app is great! Now I don't have to use my video player for audio books. It works as well as Audible.

Erez Lidor

Love it Good functionality, very reliable, easy to use while driving.

Nguyen Vu

useful app, But.. This app eats 232 mb of Ram inspite I did not use it 4 days ago. Whaaat?

Joe Coll

Simply perfect Perfect product. It works great, the widgets are simple and automatically try and fit with your home screen. Free trial got me hooked and full cost is very reasonable.

dennis johnstone

Exactly what I was looking for - speed control and customized advance/rewind. Nice job. Galaxy Note 4.

Krishna Penukonda

A great, feature-rich audio book player I expected this app to be fairly barebones considering it was free, but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of great features included in it. Great work from the developers :)

Lein Shory

Great, but recently... I've been using this app for a while now and have always loved it. However, since I started using it on my Galaxy S7 it's been stopping seemingly randomly and losing my progress in the book. This evening it stopped 3 times in the span of 15 minutes. It's done this with multiple books and multiple files. I would love to know what might be causing this because it's a frustrating experience and as I've said I love the app and its features.

Michael Wangner

This is the best audiobook player on the market. Unfortunately, it isn't yet compatible with Android Auto. I was excited to see many car manufacturers include Android auto in their 2016 models, and just as disappointed when I realized my music and podcast apps worked with my new car, but this one didn't.

Daniel Mathias Bair

Excellent app for AudioBooks. One minor problem is that it isn't recognized by Android as a media player so it won't display in my custom app what's playing... :( still worth 5 stars for what it is.

Yulia Ioffe

Best audiobook player Best audiobook player ever! So happy I tried it. And it really makes a book sound louder if needed which is very useful.

Dan Rebney

This is my favorite app. It's one of the few apps I've found that's well worth the purchase.

Biodun Onipede

Worth the money Pay these guys the cost for these pro version. It's worth it

Rachel Miller

Easy to use and works with the software in my car. I live this player. I like that you can select covers for albums/books from the internet, ur starts a few seconds back depending on how long you have posed, and I used to like the adjustable sleep feature but that hasn't been working well lately. I have used this app for years. Hope they fix the sleep feature soon and it will be perfect again. Also I wish the pause button in my car worked fit this player, but you can't have everything :)

Tom Steventon

Does what it says on the tin. Nice, simple homescreen widget. Can pull book images from Google and has an adjustable sleep timer that can be reset by shaking the phone (shake level customisable). Auto-rewinds a small amount based on last listening length. Really nice to use!

Will Wong

Great functionalitis. Rough UI Pretty much the best audiobook player in terms of functionality. But the UI is probably the worst I've seen since the end of Symbian era.

Mark Bielawiec

Excellent features The app works better then I expected. I even like the controls in the notification bar. Cons: notification remains even after the app is closed. You have to manually closer the notification bar as well. The icon could use some work.

Richard Price

Amazing Infinitely more customizable than Audible or Kindle AudioBook apps. Works great and is ad-free for the basic version, $2 for full version. It's a no brainer. Just works first shot and does exactly what it's supposed to. Have used it every day for months flawlessly.

Brian Chee

Awsome The tasker intents just made my life heaven.

Filipe Teles

Great player Works pretty smoothly, neat interface and many different control buttons. Just pne suggestion: add progress bar and current time market to Lock Screen.

F. Christophe Brown

Great player, one issue I love this app, so much thought was put into every feature. The only issue I have with it is the sleep timer doesn't stop playing when the phone is plugged in. I'm on a Galaxy s5 on Verizon, if that would help with a fix!

Wojciech Gebicki

Excellent for the discerning user. Question: have you eliminated the simplified control panel that was appearing in the phone's general slide-down menu or can it be turned back on?

Robert Broussard

This program is effective, intuitive and does exactly what you want it to do. Alex is consistently updating this program and making it better. I have been surprised and delighted by this purchase over and over. Thank you for an excellent product at an excellent price.

Kris Stark

Stop searching for an Audiobook reader - you just found it. Absolutely brilliant for audiobooks. I had tried various different programs for books before and was always looking for something better - and this is it. Still have not found anything bettee!

Reuben Bosch

Hands-Down Best Audiobook Player The Pro version of this app is the best $2 I ever spent! It's packed full of useful features, yet remains unbloated, with a slick and friendly interface. I couldn't ask for more!

A Google User

Still loving this app! I love that I can listen to multiple books at once and this app place marks all of them. I even bought the full version to show my support. I've recommended this to anyone listening to audio books or wanting to start. I've listened to books on an iPod via iTunes, but much prefer Smart Audiobook Player's experience on my Android phones. I've never used an iPhone, but know a few users who wish they had this app. I'm told they can't find it in the App Store. Oh well. ?

Jenelle Hibbert

Best thing ever Enjoying my books so much more since i found this app. It is fabulous!

A Google User

just keeps getting better... the perfect app. when there is a bug,the developer responds promptly. pro version is worth triple the price. the ability to choose voice speed and magnify volume is great. volume booster really works! the sole flaw is the nag screen lowers the volume without warning if it thinks youre wearing headphones. I use speakers. and you cant disable but its still a 5star app.

Brent Harris

The Best Audio Book Reader. I use this every day on my commute. I purchased the full version 3 years ago. It has the best feature set I have found on any player. Pay for the full version. You will never regret it.

Andrew Seal

Best audiobook player fullstop! So gud. Love the full version. The double press headset button to rewind, the time line, the lockscreen widget. Totally the best audiobook player. Cant praise it enough

Michael Huston

Best reader that I've ever used. Well worth $2. Most important feature is playback speed. It is a lot better to listen to a book at 2x than to take twice as long.

James Wilson

Works well Very good app. I've used it for months now and still prefer it while driving.

Wim Weinhonig

Nice but ugly Pretty nice, works like it is supposed to, but man the design is ugly. Also the quick navigation bar in the drop down menu is way too large.

Arash Mivehchi

Exactly what I need I use this application couple of hours a day and I think it's the best audio book player

Kyle Yearwood

Best in Class Reader Has all the functions you would want in a reader. The UI could be improved a bit; I'm sure that's on the way

Eric Cathell

I use this app practically everyday on my commute to and from work. It works flawlessly for me. My only request is that now that I have a vehicle with Android Auto, that this app could be made Android Auto Compatible. Thank you for adding Android Auto support. You guys rock!

Nick Doublethreefour

Almost perfect, request Although the app is perfect, I would like an option to remove the next/previous track button because you can accidentally tap it and lose your position if the tracks are hours long. I will change my review of course if you answer.. Thank you!!

Corry Mainor

Great I'll give it four stars simply bcoz l haven't tried out other apps, but l love it, love it love it

john doe

My most used app Your book reader is the best that I have come across. Thanks

Bruce Sinclair

Very good app Have been using this for almost five years. Never a complaint!

Joshua Michael Smith

My only audiobook playwr This thing is great. It does exactly what I want. Great features, extremely usable.

DeVaughn Currie

Great player can we get a Chromecast button though

Kurtis Ence

Best app ever I have have no problem with this app. It is amazing.

Allan Jacques

Bluetooth double click problem My Bluetooth headset double click goes forward instead of rewind...

Kristijan Kasunic

Perfect Feels great when you don't wake up with the audiobook still playing and you having no idea what happened or at what point you fell asleep. So this app is perfect for me.

Kaydene Rose

Excellent Reader Reads both mp3 and apple audio file format. Intuitive design and great features like bookmark, increase speed etc. I highly recommend it.

Michael Pulliam

Only player that I've tested that reads opus Reads the tags too!

Mike Weatherl

Thanks! Looks like battery drain might be more-than-negligible, but besides that inevitable relationship, this is nearly flawless!

Graf Vomda

How can I backup my bookmarks? Where have I put the saved files?

Tristan Tarrant

The best This is the best audio book player. Featureful, updated frequently,

Garret Kruger

Exactly what I was looking for! Audible and Overdrive have great apps for their respective files, but I needed a standalone player for mp3 audiobooks, this one is perfect! Definitely worth paying for the full version, thanks developers! And updates keep coming, 5 stars all the way.

Aleksey Baibarin

Nice It saves and restores playback position even for removable flash drive, nice library organization

Nick H

Great audio book player This app is awesome

Chandan Sejekan

Must have audio book player! Feature rich and by far the best audio book player!

Peter Hurley

Great app Has everything I was looking for and more, highly recommended.

Dawud Isenor

Amazing I like it when an app has all the features you want. I LOVE it when it has useful features you never even thought of. This is a very practical audio player. It is now absolutely essential.

Paul Monlezun

Great audiobook player with a unique feature Its the only player that tells you how much time is left in the book and recalculates time based on the speed of the book in addition to the section. I didn't think it was a big deal until I started using it.

Ilija Pecelj

Great app The app has all the features that I wanted from this kind of app. And it works well. If any issues are encountered, the author is forthcoming, and provides the fix very fast.

Tymas X

still working great (worth paying for btw) Thank you for fixing the issue I was having trouble with! You do by far have the best audiobook app available!!!!

darren crofts

Was great now having problems Player keeps starting on its own when/ putting tablet down or picking up so when I come back its going or book is finished cant turn off quick menu when tablet opened which is where the problem lies I think. It started about 2 weeks ago. Closing the app does not close the shortcut on welcome screen. The only way I can close the app properly is go into apps and force stop then it cant start playing on its own. It just starts playing when headphones or charge cable are inserted when the cover is closed or pic

Lynx Genisys

love this! I've tried several other audiobook apps then found this one. it is hands down by far the best one I've tried, and has worked flawlessly for me across all my droid devices. if you want an audiobook player with the perfect mix of features, here you go! lol

Garret Kruger

Keeps getting better! Audible and Overdrive have great apps for their respective files, but I needed a standalone player for mp3 audiobooks, this one is perfect! Definitely worth paying for the full version, thanks developers! And updates keep coming, 5 stars all the way.

Yevgen Antymyrov

Awesome app! Every time I want to try Audible or (when I feel brave and crazy) Storytel, the author of Smart Audiobook Player adds another feature that make this app even better. Buy the full version, don't be cheap!

Mike Weatherl

Perfect Looks like battery drain might be more-than-negligible, but besides that inevitable relationship, this is nearly flawless!

Andy Berts

A dynamic and powerful app This is by far and away the best audiobook app that I can find with a wide variety of options and a great free and paid for app

Jason Dishong

Amazing I use this app for nearly 8 hours some days and when I have to do OT I use it for up to twelve it is awesome.. great job

thomas skareteg

The best A gem in terms of AudioBooks playing. lots of perfect features. love it!


Great application I use it everyday to listen to audio books on what way to and from work.

Sean Rafferty

Better than expected Does everything I need in an audio book player.

Adrian Hardy

Love it I use it everyday. Best so I every bought. Thank you

Sudarshan Kadam

Best audio book player out there with Android Auto support

Matthew Reynolds

Great app and smart updates. Would love to see casting as an option.

Aaron Lefler

It works great. It works great.

DV Epps

Bar-None Best App/Support Developer replied to my email and attempted to solve my problem at around 22:00 on a Saturday night. I have heard that this developer is great at support, but this was above and beyond. The perfect player for audiobooks. Any listener needs to try. I was EASILY convinced after my month-long trial. I use other players for music, but, for audiobooks, this app is 2nd to none. Also, lovely interface. Best couple of dollars I've ever spent.

Nick Reynolds

New to audiobooks and this is a godsend I have been struggling with the media player that came with my phone to keep track of my audiobook for my long commute. If it stayed unused too long, like for my work shift, the app would restart and lose my place. This app keeps the place no matter how much I try opening or closing it, or restarting my phone. The other features are nice as well and it's free! Would give 6/5 stars if I could.

Salim Omr

It's actually very smart!! I was listening to a book everyday on my 30 minutes away school then one day I did a factory reset to my phone and when I reinstalled the app and uploaded the audio book to my phone it started it on the chapter I left it in the same minute and second... And that blew my mind!

Wayne Hansen

Great App Edit: Got Close, Rewind, and Play to work as a float widget with an Overlays app. Use it all the time during my commute to work. Would like to see more widgets for control buttons though, only control related widget has just the play button (maybe a 1x1 with a Rewind and Play/Pause, plan to use it in a floating panel widget over Waze)

Please add SYNC ability Love it's simple intuitive interface, no annoying ads, great features and more. Would LOVE just one feature: ability to SYNC bookmarks with my other devices, like Overdrive and Kindle. Have been requesting for more than 2 years. Please!!

Addition of equaliser and volume enhancer makes it almost perfect. Allowing user to create new default profiles and use them as stock would be a nice extra. Internal headphone control could be extended, but not at the excellent stability.

Erica Worley-Ring

Great investment Have used this alot and continue to use this alot, still. It's become invaluable and well worth the couple bucks I paid for it a few yrs ago. edited 9/16/16 This app is STILL amazing!

Kat Wow

Never written a review before. This is the 3rd audiobook player I have tried and have been using for over a year. Love the sleep function. Use it while going to bed, but leave it on all the time. I can get sucked into a book and not realize how long I have been listening. Only one annoying thing. Many menu items will stop the book from playing. For instance, while listening if you go to the library, the book stops. So you cannot browse the library while listening to a book. I just use a file folder app to view the contents instead.

Brenda Kovacs

Refreshing book list/no customer service When I refresh my books, I get a lot more than just audio books. Is there a setting I can change to clear out all the extra stuff? I don't have any other way to ask questions about this app. No customer service link. HELP!

Jatinder Jaggi

Great app. Love this app. But even in the full version that I have I cannot understand why playback stops on its own after some time and play button has to be pressed again for it to start. It is most annoying

M.Scott Drummond

Still In my very humble opinion This is the best audio book reader out there. I have tried a lot and the features that this program has puts the rest to shame. Still loving this app.

Lucas Hipkins

Sonos Hey Alex, I absolutely love your app, I just wish it would work with my Sonos system. Is this something you are possibly working on? It is the only thing missing from your app.

Charl Prak

This is the one. Download it now. Really. It would not be all that hard to add a 'skin' feature, allowing better customisation of the UI, which looks very rough. The aesthetic quibbles are honestly the only issue. Best audiobook app, for sure.

mitch petronijevic

Best player hands down Always updated, never any problems. Haven't found a better one in years. Updating purely to say it's still the best :)

Helga S.

The best. ???????? Love the new notification bar quick bookmark option!...................... I've used many different audio book players, till I found this one. I've used it for around 2 years and totally love it. I have the paid for version which is excellent, it has everything that you could ask for. Simple yet very effective. I love that it finds my audio books for me once I give it the file path as well as my covers. Plus it looks gorgeous on my screen. The developer is extremely helpful and responds quickly as possible. All in all a great experience.

Joel Hayes

Works great but could use a UI overhaul This app has been amazing for listening to and organizing all my audiobooks! Love the app and all the extra customization features like sound booster and EQ controls. Only downside to the app is the UI design needs to be updated to a more material look. Bought the full version after trial with no regrets!

Michael Mahon

Great audiobook app Excellent audiobook app full of features been using it for years, even bought the full version, however sense upgraded to marshmallow been unstable quiting periodically tried white listing from battery saving apps etc without resolving the issue. Finally switching apps. ** Edit - Thanks Alex that seems to improve it some.

ReggieandFaye Grassfield

Couldn't be happier! Does EXACTLY what it says it does.. One of the few programs I actually paid for and it's totally worth it!

Thomas Scott

Truly smart, clean also. LG G4 6+ hrs a day. I've tried my fare share of audio book players, this is my favorite so far. It's clean, simple to use and I recommend it for beginners or serious listeners also. The extras features, things like bookmarks and character notes, are tucked out of the way and easy to hide or use. Sleep is activated with one click and works great. Start and stop work seamless with my LG Bluetooth headset, so I use this at work almost 6 hours out of my day.

Marvin Kuers

Great audio book player Easy to use. Backtracks on interruptions to help listener remember the spot. Works well for copied cd books, too.
