I'm really appreciating this BookPlayer app for its simplicity and its support of the remote control feature of second generation airPods.
I love it as well! I used it…
I love it as well! I used it for playing a book in M4B format a while ago. Compared to the native books app, this one handles importing much more gracefully
Sincere thanks for sharing this app.
Finally, there are still apps with a minimal, simple interface, as it should be.
it is simply excellent at what it does.
It's a missing piece, and essentially it's because Apple's Books app doesn't support importing on-device, only via iTunes/Finder syncing. If they did, probably I wouldn't need this app! As it is, so glad it exists.
