Ambling BookPlayer Pro v2.11
Requirements: Android 1.6+
Overview: The premium player for listening to audiobooks.
Download thousands of free audio books from AmblingBooks.com, or purchase best selling mp3 audio book titles, or listen to audio books that you already own. Never lose your place in an audiobook again Thanks to the undo/redo bookmarking system.
Unlike music players which include audiobook 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 audiobook 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 hundreds of 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 also 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 AmblingBooks.com 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 Ambling BookPlayer can play any audio file type supported by the Android audio system. You can test if an audiobook you already own will play by trying to play your audiobook file with the default Android music player. Supported file types include .mp3, .ogg, .mp4, .wav, .3gp, and .m4a. Some Android devices can also play the .wma audio format IF it is not DRM encrypted. The Ambling BookPlayer can NOT play audio files which are encrypted using a DRM encryption system or .m4b audio files which are not supported by the Android audio system.
The Ambling BookPlayer Pro edition includes additional functionality which is not included in the Personal edition.
The Pro edition adds extensive Library functions, Series management, bookmarks with text or audio notes, and Sleep Timer.
