Audiobook Builder makes it easy to turn your audio CDs and files into audiobooks for your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Join audio, create enhanced chapter stops, adjust quality settings and let Audiobook Builder handle the rest. When it finishes you get one or a few audiobook tracks in iTunes instead of hundreds or even thousands of music tracks!
• Ready for macOS 10.12 Sierra •
• Disables App Nap when adding files, importing CDs, and building your audiobooks so Audiobook Builder doesn’t appear to stall.
• Minor user interface adjustments and error reporting improvements.

A Superior and powerful program. - I toiled at converting my audiobooks on my windows pc for days before finding this app through a recommendation on a blog. The app is so easy to use, I was suspicious of its’ ability to do what I needed it to do. The interface is clean, powerful, and well laid out. Just enter some book information, a book cover image, and import the ripped audio book .m4a/.mp3 files. From there you can organize the files into their respective chapters, set separate chapter art and then output the file into an iTunes format (.m4b) audiobook. I was able to take 170+ files of one of my books and make an audiobook that was 1/3 the size while retaining the audio quality I desired in less time then it took me to find the app in the first place. I couldn’t be more impressed.
Doesn’t work anymore! - I’ve used this app for awhile (since 5/15) and it used to work great—maybe a little slow, but good enough for me. Or at least it was until IT STOPPED WORKING recently. Every time i try to open it now I get an an error message telling me that it’s “quit unexpectedly” and I have no idea why. Possibly, this has to do with an update but i already updated everything and it’s still happening. The “support” for this app is a joke (i clicked on it and was taken to a website where they direct you to an unhelpful FAQ page and an outdated forum that nobody visits).

Solid Audiobook building app - This is a great little audiobook application that makes it the process of making chapterized .m4b files simple and streamlined. It works well with little to no learning curve. Worth the money. Feedback to the developers: This is a really small thing, but don’t you think it’s time to update the iTunes symbol on the chapters tab? It’s two symbols behind. Also, the screenshots that show the app are on a machine with a Snow Leopard background and show an even earlier version of the iTunes symbol on the chapters page. Update your screenshots and show your customers you’re up with the times!
Creating Audiobooks … for iPhones and no more tickets - So short story long. Got a couple of tickets and after having to pay the lawyers twice for simple idiotic moves. One asked me. What exactly are you doing behind the wheel? I can only say driving and listening to music. So when a great fast song comes along you speed? No but I will go fast and not notice little signs like “No turn on Red”. Solution Audiobooks. Now I tend to stay on the car longer even after I arrive at the location. Turns out you can drive calmly and easily if you are not in a hurry. I enjoy my drives. Yes, it works. Try it. So here comes Audiobook Builder. Pefect for my needs. I can throw mp3 files or rip a CD and create an audiobook. I can then get really creative and make great looking chapters on the Audiobook. They look really cool in the car entertainment screen. Once I started listening to books, zero tickets.
It just does what it is supposed to do - Rich feature set and stability
Perfect - Simple to use UI, does the job without hiccups.
Audiobook Builder - I have used Audiobook Builder for several years and today with new Sierra. Worked great. Great product.
