Books are great and everything but sometimes reading them is a bit of a chore, especially if you're illiterate. If you're the sort of person whose eyes go funny when you stare at pages of words for too long then try listening to an audiobook instead. Nokia Audiobooks is an app specifically designed to help you do this on your phone, and it makes for a great experience.
The software consists of two components: an environment for Windows capable of converting a CD or MP3 file into a format optimised for playback on your phone, along with the player itself. The compression format it uses, AMR-WB is quite impressive, and is optimised for voiceovers, preserving acoustic quality while significantly reducing file size.
This is important because some audiobooks can reach up to 20 hours in length, creating a monster file that would be near-impossible to handle on your device were it not for Nokia Audiobooks. With this app you can get 5-10 times more content on your phone than you would if you compressed the file as an MP3.
You might be thinking 'why do I need a dedicated program for audiobooks when I can play them on my default media player?' Of course, you could do this, but Nokia Audiobooks comes with tailor-made features such as the ability to browse chapters, set bookmarks and automatically continue the story where you left off last time.
If you want to make your journey to work more enjoyable get hold of Nokia Audiobooks and enjoy great works of literature on your mobile.
