iPhone app for Audiobook streaming

Unread post by Gaunts Ghost » Thu Oct 30, 2014 1:30 pm

Hello

I have a lot of Audiobooks on my Diskstation. Currently I sync them through iTunes to my iPhone, but I would be a lot more comfortable for me if I could just stream directly.
One possibility is to use DS Audio, but while it does remember how far you have come and buffers the files to the phone, it loses the "bookmark" whenever I choose to play something else.

Does anyone here have any ideas for third party Audiobook apps that offers WebDAV connection or FTP access? Preferably with the options to download/buffer.

Hi,

Did you ever find a workable solution to this? I am trying to find a good way to play my archive of audiobooks, but so far haven't found a good solution.

No. I have to sync them through iTunes or buy them again through Audible.

I use an app called VoiceDream on the iPhone.

It's primarily used for text-to-speech (I use it linked to Instapaper), but I just did an experiment with an audio book in MP3 and it seems to work - keeps last position etc.

For some reason, the DS Cloud app has an Open With... function, whereas DS File doesn't seem to. So, I added the MP3 audio book to a new folder in one of my Cloud shares, let that sync with the iPhone, tapped the i next to the filename, tapped Open With... and selected VoiceDream and the file gets copied in.

A few steps, but at least you can do it all from your iOS device.

Hope this helps.
