I have an mp3 (or set of mp3s) of audiobooks, downloaded podcasts, or recorded talks I want to listen to.
I’ve tried listening to it on Android’s default mp3 player. I’ve also tried Google Play Music. It seems neither of these weren’t designed for audiobooks.
I’m looking for an app or solution that is designed for listening to audiobooks and has Audible-like features. Specifically,
- I can stop playback and even close the app, reboot my phone, and come back to it later and I don’t lose my place in the book. That is, the app remembers the hour and minute I left off at. Audible solves this problem very well. So does the new Google Podcasts app. Google Play Music does not.
Nice to have:
I can easily fast forward or rewind 30 seconds
I can adjust playback speed to 1.5x, 2x, etc.
Paid apps are fine. What do you recommend?
