"Audiobooks HQ by Inkstone Mobile" (App Store link) gives users the ability to listen to 5353 audiobooks for free. The app itself will cost $1.99 to initially download, but all the audiobooks included in the app are free to listen to. Users have the ability to choose which audiobook and then which episode to listen to, which are then available on the home screen of the app to easily continue should you stop.
Each episode comes with detailed information such as duration and size, but episodes must be downloaded first in order to listen to them.
The interface of the app is very impressive - it's clean and easy to start using. The interface of the actual player seems to function well and all buttons and tools are easily accessible. The catalog of the app is actually more diverse than what we thought it would be and includes a good amount of well-known books (not to mention the fact that they're all free!).
