Traveling to and from work, while exercising, or waiting in line - find your smile in a book with Audiobook Builder!
Audiobook Builder makes it easy to turn audio CDs and files into audiobooks for your iPhone®, iPad®, or other Apple® devices. 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 Books, Music, or iTunes® instead of hundreds or even thousands of music tracks!
Create Your Own Audiobooks
These goodies make it almost too easy.
As you import, Audiobook Builder automatically ejects each CD and asks for the next.
Join your own audio files
Already ripped your CDs? Don’t suffer through it again. Drag tracks straight to Audiobook Builder. M4A or M4B with audio formats that match well enough can be quickly joined without re-encoding. Other common audio formats, like MP3, are also supported.
Create enhanced chapter stops
Give your audiobooks that special touch by grouping your audio files into chapters with custom names and artwork. Apple devices usually give you controls to move quickly between chapters during playback.
Choose your own quality
Get started with built-in audio quality presets or customize to your personal taste.
Select AAC or HE-AAC
Go with AAC for the highest quality at higher data rates, great for music-heavy works when you have storage to spare. Use HE-AAC for excellent quality at lower data rates, perfect for spoken word.
Send your audiobooks to Books or Music
Drag and drop straight from Music or iTunes to Audiobook Builder and build directly to Books, Music, or iTunes.
Start now, finish later
When you add audio to Audiobook Builder it’s copied to a document file, so you’re free to start a project now, take a break, and return later to finish up. You can even move projects between Macs!

Great app--Does exactly what I needed

Building audiobook files from books on CD is even easier than expected with this app. After starting the process using an external, USB CD player, the app ejects each CD when it's ready for the next one. The user doesn't even have to go back to the app to start with the next CD in the set, since simply inserting the next disc will start the ripping process. This is perfect for doing other tasks while using this app. Thank you!

I've been using this app for several years, mostly to combine sections of freebie audiobooks from LibriVox. It works beautifully. I think the UI is intuitive and simple, but the app has enough options for customizing if you want to. I also *really* like that the developers don't collect any data and that they continue to update it. Thank you to the development team!
