With the slow extinction of good MP3 players, smartphones and tablets are moving more into the focus of audiobook lovers. But there are other good reasons to think about the smartphone as a playback device: It is powerful enough for more complex software with more functions. The larger display is clearer and offers space for more modern operating concepts. In addition, you have the cell phone with you anyway and thus reduce the amount of electronics to be carried around. In addition, only a few MP3 players control USB or Bluetooth headphones.
One advantage of MP3 players, on the other hand, is that, thanks to their tactile buttons, they are easier to operate and require less attention when starting and stopping playback, for example. After all, some headphones offer the option of outsourcing some of these functions to their integrated buttons.
In this test, we limited ourselves to audiobook apps for Android that play MP3 files and other formats, can at least be tested for free, are currently maintained by the developer, have a German user interface and provide the basic functions for audiobooks. The mAbook Audiobook Player, Smart AudioBook Player and Voice Audiobook Player remained.
