Audiobook player for Lumia 800?

Want to use my new Lumia for Audiobooks i have on file in MP3 format but need a player that can pause and have the functions like MortPlayer Audiobooks eller Smart audiobook player for Android...

 

Have read somewhere a guy that used Mort for Window phones but think it is for a older version...

 

Any suggestions?

Follow this tutorial:

http://www.1800pocketpc.com/how-to-get-mp3-audiobooks-to-your-windows-phone-tutorial/23369/

 

It's a simple little program that turns a specified directory of mp3's into a faux podcast. You then enter the podcast url into Zune and it downloads everything and syncs them to your phone.

 

You can even add an image to the feed.

Problem with Zune is that the controls are inappropriate for audiobooks, ie no bookmarks, jump foward 10 sec etc. Like sys_ys I've been looking for an audiobook player for two months now. There are only 2 free apps via the marketplace - both with severe limitations for audiobook file usage but good control settings.

Hi sys_ys,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!

 

You will find a number of audiobook players, both free and paid for in Windows Phone Marketplace.

 

Hope this helps,

Kosh
