Listen Audiobook Player has an easy to use user interface and many useful features that will help you enjoy your audiobooks to the fullest.
If you, like me, take a great pride in having all your audio files properly tagged and fitted with a proper artwork then you will be pleased to know that Listen Audiobook Player can download cover art for you. The app can also sync your reading position across multiple devices, set a sleep countdown timer, change playback speed, and it even plays flac.
An integrated Tasker and LLama support means that you can really go wild and set up an automated book playback when you go jogging.
Smart AudioBook Player

Smart AudioBook Player has slightly less attractive design than Listen Audiobook Player, but it definitely has a lot to offer in terms of features.
We like the ability to automatically pause playback in case you fall asleep and the option to manually create a list of characters to easier follow the store.
The full version costs only $2 and is definitely worth purchasing if you often listen to audiobooks and want a truly capable audio player.
Material Audiobook Player

MAterial Audiobook Player is a free and open source audiobook player with a great looking material design interface that is easy to navigate.
This app works best if you keep your audiobooks organized in a single folder with subfolders for each individual book. You can then just add your main audiobook folder and every folder in there will be recognized as a single book.
Very simple, yet incredibly useful and effective app that will cost you absolutely nothing unless you decide for in-app purchases.
Long Music Player Visualizer

Long Music Player Visualizer is a useful app not only for audiobook lovers but also for fans electronic music with its precise seeking and 10 band equalizer, cover art support, and tag editing capabilities.
Of course, the most important part of this audio player is more than 300 ‘Milkdrop style‘ visualizations using ProjectM. These can add a great deal of immersion to your music and pair especially well with electronic, ambient, and dance music.
You do not need to pay anything to enjoy most features that Long Music Player Visualizer has to offer, but if you decide to do so, you will get folder browser, tag editor, and the ability to change tempo of playback.
MortPlayer Audio Books

This player comes with a very extensive list of features including manual bookmarks, playlist support, album art support, easy folder/file selection, sleep and alarm mode, swipe gestures, selectable layouts, and equalizer with bass boost, just to name a few.
The app is completely free and comes without any additional in-app purchases.
