approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

create accounts and set passwords
Allows the app to use the account authenticator capabilities of the AccountManager, including creating accounts and getting and setting their passwords.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

GET ACCOUNTS
Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

change your audio settings
Allows the app to modify global audio settings such as volume and which speaker is used for output.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

read sync settings
Allows the app to read the sync settings for an account. For example, this can determine whether the People app is synced with an account.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

toggle sync on and off
Allows an app to modify the sync settings for an account. For example, this can be used to enable sync of the People app with an account.

    This app works great for books with separate files for chapters but fails hard for books where the entire book is one file. It seems like once you pause or bookmark a book it stops downloading or something. I had a 16 hour book cut off at 6 hours yesterday and now I can't even get it to refresh back to the correct duration. This is the second time this has happened. It's extremely frustrating.

    Used to love this app. Stopped working since last two updates, no support apart from asking for logs. Works through browser, app doesn't connect Edit: thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately the app still doesn't connect (LAN or WAN) using the proxy setting, whilst the browser does, so I can only see this as an app fault.

    After several months use I can say, great idea, terrible implementation. The app is riddled with problems, crashing, losing its place, refusing to skip through a track & doesn't work with m4b very well are just some of the issues. The only reason I'm still using it is that I can't find anything else like it.

    Absolutely amazing stuff. Once you configure it, it is perfect. Configuring is not that hard. I chose the docker container for the server. Once a few books are on the server and you can play them from any home computer via your web-browser, you can try android client configuration. The little confusing stuff for me was that it could not connect initially, but then I realised - you have to choose your home access point name (SSID). That makes sense - so that booksonic client does not try to connect to server in any other networks. Greatest thing for audiobooks. And I am not even mentioning podcasts yet - subscribe to any rss easily and keep episodes on your home server.

    Configuring this app is a real headache if you aren't network savvy. I finally got to pull up by books on my android device but I cannot access them remotely which means if I'm away from the house I cannot stream or begin syncing new tracks to listen to later. I was pretty certain I read that the server allowed for remote access but I could be wrong.

    Can't connect to my reverse Proxy, because AES256 cipher suites are unable to connect. Any way you could allow any of these suites: Cipher Suites TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA ? I know Java does not support these by default.. Otherwise a great app!

    Really like the idea of an audiobook server, and have started to implement it, but am struggling with how to organize the server's files. Is there a help file or advice. I would like to divide the audobooks by genre, then author, then title. How many subdirectory levels is supported? Can you implement Genre's as a top level selection? I created sub-directories like "fiction" "Mystery" "sci-fi" . My family will be more into using this if they don't have to wade through titles they are not interested in. Thanks so much for your hard work.

    I really am excited to see an audiobook version of the subsonic apps. One thing I really wish it had would be an ability to have variable speed with pitch correction on playback. I use Smart Audiobook Player a lot and I listen at 1.3x normally. I am not sure I can get used to listening to the audiobooks at a normal speed after doing it for so long at 1.3x. Otherwise I appreciate your efforts so far! The server works great too. I will need to tweak my metadata and album covers though. A lot seem to either not exist in my folders. Some of my mp3s have the cover in the metadata as well. Maybe the server does not look for them?

    The UI is really quite terrible. I don't want to have the organization of my audiobooks based on the directory structure. I definitely don't want the tracks for my audiobooks sorted lexicographically by the title tagtag, especially if the numerical track number is available! It's interesting to compare this with Plex — they essentially know they are providing an alternative to Netflix sourced with private content, so they made their UI as similar to Netflix as possible. This app should look like Audible.

    App does what it advertises but I am trying to figure out if my streaming sessions from the app can be linked by the web so I can play from webpage where I left off. The scraper on the server lays the information neatly and clean in the app. Very simple design, has more options than I expected and the developer listens to the people who purchase it.

I've been looking to run a "Plex for Audiobooks" setup for a long time and haven't found something that works. Well, this does, and I love it. Thank you developer. I hope you keep going strong.
