In search of a better way to listen to audiobooks

Hello,

First time poster in this forum. I did a search on Dropbox and doesn't look like anyone has asked the following question:

I currently listen to audio books on my Android smartphone using the the Smart AudioBook Player app and Dropbox.

Smart AudioBook Player is great. However, using Dropbox to get audio books (in the form of lots of individual MP3 files) onto my smartphone is not great as there is no 'select all' feature to download from Dropbox to my smartphone. So I have to individually select sometimes hundreds of MP3 files. Very tedious.

Is there another cloud service that does offer 'select all', or a completely different better way? Ideally I could also have my audiobooks sync across all the different devices I use:

Android smartphone
Mac laptop
iPad

Thanks

Hi,

No need to ditch dropbox, man.
If you need to download many files or even folders at once, I'd suggest Folder Downloader for Dropbox (it's on the Play Store)

Or you could use a powerful file manager such as ES File Manager.

Both are free.


Cheers

The following is more of a nice to have since I do nearly all of my audiobook listening on my smartphone, but if anyone does have a solution that would sync my listening place in an audiobook across both the iPad and Android smartphone that would also be appreciated.

Thanks.
