Review by Bamalamaboo

Better than Audiobookbuilder! - I’ve been using Audiobookbuilder (which i paid $ for) for the past year until it suddenly stopped working (possibly it updated and I just have to restart or something but who knows). I came here and saw this was app was FREE so i gave it a shot and what do you know? It works just as good as ABBuilder—only FASTER! My only complaint is adjusting the length manually can be a minor inconvienience (you only need to do this if your book is over 24 hrs or unless you want it broken up into 2-3 smaller files) and I’m still not sure it it’s absolutely neccessary to use the “Command J” keys to “join” the all the chapters into a file before I bind it but whatever; I do it anyways… Save yourself some $ and try this app before you consider trying anything else (i really wish I had!).

Review by AzoldFart

Dissapointed - Just downloaded the upgrade. I cannot get this version to "Quit" and remove itself from my doc. Needs a fix right away.

Version 2.1
Review by Red Hot Chili Popper

Absolutely wonderful app - The fact that this free app keeps being updated is great. I’ve gotten so much use out of this program. It takes a big mess of mp3 files and turns them into 1 or 2 files with a cover. I couldn’t find another free app or even paid app that comes close to this thing Really, thanks for such a great product.

Review by BobbyBigBuns

Can’t beat this app - I have been using this application since I switched to a Mac and don’t have easy access to my Windows machine I used to use. This application works great and I convert the many MP3s from a ripped audiobook CD to a single M4B file that is quite small. Did I mention it is free? I have gotten enough use that I will donate.

Version 2.1
Review by GuyNamedJT

Simply wonderful - Wonderful tool for it’s function, simple to use with one purpose and no unnecessary frills. The only suggestion I could make to improve it would be a queueing feature, beyond that it’s perfect the way it is. I’ve noticed a tendancy for the progress to not update giving the impression of a crash but this is only cosmetic as the app is working and will be fine if you just let it go.

Review by Won't accept my Ping ID

So so. Great for short audiobooks - First the good: It’s free. It works great if you have a short audiobook. Reasonably fast, strait-forward, nice and light. The bad: Mostly useless if you have an audiobook over about 12 hours. And I don’t know if I even have any that short. The best solution I’ve found so far is to make multiple parts, but the whole idea was to combine multiple parts into one audiobook. Bottom line: If you have a short audiobook and you don’t want to spend any money, this is the program for you. If you have lots of audiobooks that are typical (longer than 12 hours), try using iTunes to combine the parts (it converts to m4b if using mp3 files). When and if the limitation is removed, this will be a 5-star program.
