A new audiobook player written with a focus on simple design and ease of use. An interface that puts your book on display and doesn't get in your way. Tap anywhere on the background to play and pause. Use gesture controls to skip forward or back. A slide out navagation drawer for when you need it. The first player to bring unique features such as downloading book cover art from within the app, set a time when the sleep countdown timer is active, auto adjust sound level when sleep timer is active, set custom sleep countown notify sounds, and a clean full screen view of your current book.
I listen to audio books every day. I wrote this player as a labor of love because I wasn't satisfied with the other players for various reasons. I've been using it for several months now during development and have just recently made it available on Google Play for as cheap as I could without giving it away (I've spent hundreds of hours developing this app, so I couldn't just give it away!) I'm very happy with how it's turned out and have more features planned. Thanks to all for the great feedback so far!

The main page is the book cover art and a progress bar. Press anywhere on the background image to toggle play and pause. Swipe left or right to small skip forward or back. Open the drawer at the bottom for skip buttons. The progress bar is disabled to prevent accidental skipping. It can be enabled temporarily by a long press.
