"Does what it claims and does it very well. Easy too"

October 03, 2013  |  By rockalittle00

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.5.3

Pros

Low Price
Super easy interface
Small size 3.6 mb
Mac compatible

Cons

Doesn't work with windows

Summary

Skip the free trial. The size of the final productis limited in the free trial
This software is Mac ONLY

I've made 5 audiobooks in 2 hours. And that's while I'm sitting at work doing many other things.
I havent' had any problems yet. The software really does all the work and the interface is SUPER easy to work with. I can drag and drop all the files in an audiobook in one step without any difficulty.
I just used the software to build 'Ender's Game'. I was working with 67 separate tracks. I consolidated them into one track, M4B (itunes), with bookmarking and shuffle skip all with ONE button click.
This is how easy it is:
1. open software
2. click new project
3. enter title of book and author if you wish
4. on same screen drag and drop artwork if you wish. (google is your friend)
click next
5. drag and drop audio tracks to this screen
6. OPTIONAL: click the zipper button (get it? cute right?) to join all the tracks and create one track. really nice because it's bookmarked so you will not lose your place.
click next
7. click create audiobook
8.you'll get a screen telling you where your book will go. it will also automatically put it in itunes. click ok
9. the software will do it's thing while you keep busy with something else.
10. DING! you have an audiobook and it's optimized for itunes.

Rinse, repeat

"GREAT APP! Does what it SAYS it will do in an easy way"

March 05, 2011  |  By eseaberg

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.2.6

Pros

Gives you multiple ways to rip audio books from CDs and either take their chapter marks (tracks) or actually create your OWN based on actual book chapters.

Cons

So far, I haven't found any.

"MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE"

November 29, 2010  |  By LTCinGalt

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.2.3

Pros

This program allows me to transfer audio books on CD to files I can play on my iPod conveniently and neatly. The resulting "book" is simple to use and allows for an attractive "cover."

Cons

Nothing serious

"100 files becomes 1 file under Books also Playlists"

October 28, 2010  |  By Bold_Sue

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.2.3

Pros

Took Spanish lesson CDs that I had already burned to disk and in iTunes so loaded this into my first project. Everything was a simple drag from iTunes and drop into AudioBook Builder software.

Cons

My original 100 audio tracks ended up into a one file Playlist. How can I possibly keep track of where I am at or restart one of the 100 lessons when I must restart at the beginning in here. 20 minutes for trial version keeps me from more testing.

Summary

I don't know what this product is meant to produce since I only get one file under "Books" and the same one file under Playlists. The 20 minute free preview use is limiting what I can test.

"Bookmarking Software is the only way to go!!"

October 09, 2009  |  By SKeenen

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.1.2

Pros

Very easy and intuitive to use.

Cons

A little slow.

Summary

I listen to audiobooks while walking in the morning, and this sporadic listening makes bookmarking software for audiobooks a must. This software is great for those of us who can't remember our place by memorizing the time on the MP3 where we stopped.
Recommended.

"Incredibly useful!"

April 10, 2009  |  By jgranger

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.0.11

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is by far the most useful piece of shareware I have ever downloaded for personal use (I couldn't live without Passenger at work). I tried the demo by putting together a 2-disc audio book in 19 minute chunks (the unregistered version has a 20 minute limit). It worked flawlessly, so I gladly paid the 10 dollars and began building usable files. I had many audio books that I had ripped from CD's and ended up with many files that were a pain to keep track of on my iPod. If you copy your audiobook cd's to your iPod, you MUST buy this. It will be the best 10 dollars you ever spend!!

"Great App, but some refinement would be nice ..."

September 10, 2008  |  By versiontracker367

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.0.10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It would be great, if we could edit more ID3-tag-Infos
when preparing the AudioBook.

Now, when we want to have these infos inside the AudioBook,
we have to take the already "ready" AudioBook,
a second time "into our hands",
and edit it in iTunes, what is very time consuming.

The programmers should let us edit not only Titel and Author,
but also
Year, Genre, Comment, Album, etc.

"Does What it Says!"

August 04, 2008  |  By cinthiamac

 |  Version: Audiobook Builder 1.0.10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Rather than repeat what has already been said, I will just add an amen to the previous reviews. Audiobook Builder works as described. Simple and effective. Use it with M4PConverter and it'll pay for itself. Save $ and the planet by not wasting CDs to burn legally owned media - only to import back to a HD for storage.
