Quick Audiobook question

(for a friend)
I have mp3 files of an audiobook which I want to give to a friend to play on her ipad. The files are on Dropbox and we can download them using the iTunes Dropbox app.

Is there an audiobook player app for non-iTunes imported files? This would be similar to the Android Mort player (and others) if that helps. Just an app that can play the files and keep the place with bookmarks.
Free is best.
Thanks!

Several are mentioned in this thread:

Your friend could also download the MP3 files from Dropbox on a desktop computer, and add them to iTunes the usual way.

I'm curious... Why not use iTunes? It can play MP3s, and if you change the media type in iTunes on the files to "Audiobook" and check the "remember playback position" box, the files will appear in iTunes and behave like any other audiobook.
