Bound – Audiobooks for Dropbox has just been released in the App Store! Bound – Audiobooks for Dropbox offers a solution to the audiobook problem on iPhone and iPad. What problem? Well, it’s super difficult to listen to audiobooks that aren’t purchased from iTunes. And if you do have audiobooks from another source, in order to listen to them on your iPhone, you need to load them into iBooks using your Mac. It’s a big hassle. Bound eliminates this hassle by connecting to audiobooks you have stored in your Dropbox account. So all you need to do is get the audiobook into Dropbox. Then you’ll have a nice interface to control and listen to it in Bound. I’m very happy to finally have an easy solution to this iOS limitation.
