Great app, can’t view chapters
by kestrel_not_kestral on 2021/03/04 16:43
As someone with a massive audiobook library, I so appreciate not having to store them all locally to my phone. The only feature that’s missing is a way to view chapters in m4a files.
Best app for streaming music off Dropbox
by TranslucentTiger on 2020/12/13 17:22
I have been using this for several years and it’s the best for playing my mp3s off Dropbox. It has all the functionality I want, allowing me to either stream or download music. I like the interface too.
Struggling
by Lauren Scalf on 2020/09/24 10:54
I love the idea of this but for how much I paid I am eternally frustrated with this app. It constantly freezes up. I’ll click on a book to play and it will load something completely different. It will randomly skip to another track in the middle of listening to a book. It will also just stop playing for no reason. I’m sick of it and I’ve had it too long to get a refund.
Disappointed
by Dysiu on 2020/09/07 13:24
Can’t cope with simple task of playing mp3s from google drive.
Love Developer Roman. Please implement caption for audiobooks
by Newhadoop on 2020/07/24 21:01
Please implement captions/ subtitles for audiobooks (look at audiosubtitler app.)
Works Great! I recommend it.
by One Intention on 2020/06/09 21:53
I store my audiobooks on Box.com (making sure to keep each audio file below their 250mb per file limitation on the free plan) and use the sync to offline feature to keep my phone data plan usage low. It does a good job of allowing me to traverse the cloud file systems to find my audiobooks and keeping it organized for me. There is an icon you can press to instantly bring up your most recent book you’ve been listening to so you can pick up right where you left off. I recommend this app!
Whoohoo!!
by FranticListener on 2020/04/07 20:08
I purchased this app last year, and man was I frustrated with it? I had my google drive hooked to the app, but whenever I played an audiobook through this app, it kept randomly stopping and I had to delete whatever I was listening to from my google drive and reupload. It was so frustrating I immediately regretted buying this app. I wrote to them and they were pretty responsive and helped me out. But it didn’t fix the issue and it had stayed on like that for months. But lo and behold, this last version has finally fixed it and thus my review! I love this app so much. I have a zbigz account and I download lots of audio books, which it lets me send to my drive in seconds! And with this app I don’t have to download anything myself, I just stream it! So yes, this app is a gold mine!! I hope it stays the same.
Last update broke it (pCloud)
by Bob 868 on 2020/03/30 08:07
Since the last update, can’t log into pCloud. Tried logging out and back in again (which deleted all my dowloaded audiobooks), uninstalling and reinstalling the app... still won’t log in to pCloud. Which makes it useless for me since all my audiobooks are in pCloud.
Absolutely Great
by $:!3&:!2&:) on 2020/02/17 19:41
I reported a bug for google drive and it was fixed almost immediately. Absolutely great. If you want to listen to audio files from google drive, speed them up/slow them down, buy the app.
Alright app, needa landscape mode
by TheAppMaven on 2019/11/26 02:35
I have been using this app for around 2 years and it's pretty good but it needs a landscape mode! I cannot see the file titles of books in portrait which is super annoying. I contacted the dev about this more than a year back and received a reply that we will get to this soon. Still over a year later no landscape mode. Disappointing.
Bug with iOS 13
by Dalton Rooney on 2019/09/22 20:42
I’ll start by saying this is the best audiobook player I’ve found for iOS. Especially that you can stream directly from cloud storage. I would like to see Dark Mode supported in iOS 13, and I’ve found a bug. When my iPad is in landscape orientation, the screen is blank. When I rotate the screen to portrait, the app work fine.
This is the one!
by Randysusan on 2019/04/25 14:55
This is what iBooks should have been. Working great. Also, developer was immediately responsive to an issue I had and showed me an easy fix. I recommend highly. I have 10 other audiobook player apps but this one works the best.
Good, almost great
by Mgorgan on 2019/03/07 00:44
Works well, I wish I could sort by release date as well considering large library.
Great app and customer service
by Ozzman07 on 2019/02/07 20:16
I just purchased the audiobook version of CloudBeats the other day and so far I’m really happy and impressed with the app. I was looking for something to avoid having to use iTunes to synch my audiobooks. iTunes has “glitched out” on me more than once and deleted all of the music and books from my phone. I have all of my media stored on a Synology NAS so my ideal situation was to find a way to at least be able to pull the media down from within an app. CloudBeats does that but takes it further and lets me stream from my Synology - and also several other cloud services. So far, the app is doing everything I want it to do. If you’re looking for a way to either stream or download your remote media, I definitely recommend CloudBeats. The support from the developer is excellent, too. I posted a question on the app’s Web site and within minutes I had a response from Roman. I thought it was a typical automated “thanks for your question, we’ll get back to you in 24 hours” response but no, it was the answer to my question. He also immediately responded to my follow-up question. Kudos for great customer support! My only request is the ability to edit a cloud connection after it’s been created. Right now, if you need to make a change, you have to sign out which removes any files that you’ve downloaded. This probably isn’t a huge deal but I was having some issues getting my Synology visible to webDAV apps (not CloudBeat’s fault) and had to change my connection info a few times. Each time I had to log out and delete anything I had downloaded. Again, this is probably a limited case and now that I have it working, I probably won’t ever have to look at that setting again.
Don’t waste you money
by Artellestudio on 2019/01/22 00:01
The App doesn't understand parts of one book. You can't choose chapters, and this app doesn't show Chapters name, just one big timeline for all book. Doesn't play from Dropbox - you need to download your book.
Awesome App!
by Unstoppable One on 2018/12/25 17:35
You will LOVE this app! I have purchased at 5-10 apps like this one and it’s the BEST AVAILABLE! I would give it a 5-star rating, but I want a few features that would put it over the top: The ability to take notes while listening.
Best audiobook player!
by Jali en on 2018/11/19 20:13
Best player by far for those of us with large libraries. Supporters Dropbox integration; sorts your library by title, author, or genre. Able to browse your online library or download for offline playing. Supports Apple Watch. I’ve tried all other players and none come close.
Unparalleled!!!
by Sinrock7 on 2018/11/02 20:05
This app is amazing. And to speak to my title, it can’t be beat for features, ease of use, and flexibility. There isn’t an app around that can provide these features as well as CloudBeats. Fantastic work!!!!
No chapter support
by Ladiciuus on 2018/09/23 00:18
An audiobook player that does not support chapters. What a joke. Look elsewhere.
Does not work!!!
by OT87 on 2018/09/01 20:23
This app is not working as expected. Will ask for a refund. It is not responsive most of the time and I do not know why. If you want an Audiobook player, just sign up for Audible. This is my conclusion after trying lots of alternative.
Bugs bugs bugs
by fackball on 2018/08/09 16:17
Please fix the bugs in this. As i listen to one book, it keeps going to the next book even though i press the one i want. Very annoying
It’s ok
by tschnepf on 2018/05/27 17:27
It doesn’t handle multipart audiobooks very well which is the large part of all my audiobook files. If that feature was more polished I would up my rating.
When it works
by yourhighnessla on 2018/03/05 20:56
This app is gold, when it works. Best app out for streaming audio books from cloud storage. I’ve had issues with playing longggggg mp3 files 20-40hr long. Issues with files randomly starting over or when changing tracks getting stuck in a repeating loop. These are very annoying issues that I hope can be fixed soon.
Sounds tinny compared with same file and speed in cloudbeats music
by capedape on 2017/11/27 02:33
Sounds tinny compared with same file and speed in cloudbeats music. 2.5 speed playback with “optimize for voice” on in cloudbeats music sounds a lot better. Shouldn’t there be a voice optimize on this, the audiobook version of the app?
LOVE this App; iPhone X Support Missing!
by Dr. Mega-cool on 2017/11/17 23:32
This is a great app, one of my most used. No other Audiobook app connects to so many cloud services or offers more features-- it's truly in a class by itself! Any plans to update for the iPhone X? Maybe add a ‘dark more’ too? Thanks!
Sketchy
by J__________ on 2017/10/24 17:42
Love the concept, but a few major issues ruin the usability of this app. First, my cloud account became locked due to "suspicious activity" after signing in from this app. Luckily I used a siloed account. Then, when I reset passwords and signed in again via the app it nuked my entire library that I had downloaded before. So much for that book I was reading...
Awesome!
by soccergal4034 on 2017/10/08 14:30
This app does exactly what I need. It's great to have options between streaming from the cloud or downloading to save data. Perfect.
I already have CloudBeats and thought...
by TheAmazingB on 2017/10/07 20:16
I already have CliudBeats and thought this was was super special for AudioBooks.. honestly I can’t find any difference really... they both seem to have the same features. If there are features, it is not apparent. I’m giving it 4 stars because I feel like I purchased something I already have. Don’t get me wrong. It is the best one of its kind... just don’t know why I purchase
Great for audio studying
by Doc Molly on 2017/10/03 15:42
I study Spanish and medicine through audio lessons and this application is ideal. It allows you to slow down and speed up the playback, place bookmarks and sync with popular clouds such as dropbox. The only feature that I would like added is the ability to leave notes attached to bookmarks.
Great app!
by elitusprime on 2017/08/27 05:33
Great app! Use it everyday.
Just what I needed
by Anon dude on 2017/04/21 09:36
Extremely helpful for organizing my audiobooks separate from music
Incredibly Useful
by Booey86 on 2017/03/07 12:14
I listen to mostly audiobook, long lectures, and podcasts on my phone so this version of Cloudbeats is right up my alley. It’s very functional and reliable, and the recent update has made the app’s response time lighting fast. I also love the option to backup my playlists because I often switch devices. This is one of my most used apps, and I highly recommend it.
WebDAV broken
by the evalutaor on 2016/10/09 18:00
Hot garbage, just wasted 5 dollars. WebDAV doesn't appear to be implemented correctly, I'm able to successfully connect to my Synology NAS from several other IOS apps.
Only one 30-second rewind per track?
by Nefficus1 on 2016/05/23 13:17
What is that? Could be a great audiobook solution but virtually worthless with that limitation
Can only do 30 second rewind once
by ariscris on 2016/05/12 14:55
I've been looking for a cloud audiobook player that could do a 10 or 30 second rewind. I thought this app would be perfect but found that rewind only works once. So weird. :(

Great app, can’t view chapters
by kestrel_not_kestral on 2021/03/04 16:43
As someone with a massive audiobook library, I so appreciate not having to store them all locally to my phone. The only feature that’s missing is a way to view chapters in m4a files.
Best app for streaming music off Dropbox
by TranslucentTiger on 2020/12/13 17:22
I have been using this for several years and it’s the best for playing my mp3s off Dropbox. It has all the functionality I want, allowing me to either stream or download music. I like the interface too.
Struggling
by Lauren Scalf on 2020/09/24 10:54
I love the idea of this but for how much I paid I am eternally frustrated with this app. It constantly freezes up. I’ll click on a book to play and it will load something completely different. It will randomly skip to another track in the middle of listening to a book. It will also just stop playing for no reason. I’m sick of it and I’ve had it too long to get a refund.
Disappointed
by Dysiu on 2020/09/07 13:24
Can’t cope with simple task of playing mp3s from google drive.
Love Developer Roman. Please implement caption for audiobooks
by Newhadoop on 2020/07/24 21:01
Please implement captions/ subtitles for audiobooks (look at audiosubtitler app.)
Works Great! I recommend it.
by One Intention on 2020/06/09 21:53
I store my audiobooks on Box.com (making sure to keep each audio file below their 250mb per file limitation on the free plan) and use the sync to offline feature to keep my phone data plan usage low. It does a good job of allowing me to traverse the cloud file systems to find my audiobooks and keeping it organized for me. There is an icon you can press to instantly bring up your most recent book you’ve been listening to so you can pick up right where you left off. I recommend this app!
Whoohoo!!
by FranticListener on 2020/04/07 20:08
I purchased this app last year, and man was I frustrated with it? I had my google drive hooked to the app, but whenever I played an audiobook through this app, it kept randomly stopping and I had to delete whatever I was listening to from my google drive and reupload. It was so frustrating I immediately regretted buying this app. I wrote to them and they were pretty responsive and helped me out. But it didn’t fix the issue and it had stayed on like that for months. But lo and behold, this last version has finally fixed it and thus my review! I love this app so much. I have a zbigz account and I download lots of audio books, which it lets me send to my drive in seconds! And with this app I don’t have to download anything myself, I just stream it! So yes, this app is a gold mine!! I hope it stays the same.
Last update broke it (pCloud)
by Bob 868 on 2020/03/30 08:07
Since the last update, can’t log into pCloud. Tried logging out and back in again (which deleted all my dowloaded audiobooks), uninstalling and reinstalling the app... still won’t log in to pCloud. Which makes it useless for me since all my audiobooks are in pCloud.
Absolutely Great
by $:!3&:!2&:) on 2020/02/17 19:41
I reported a bug for google drive and it was fixed almost immediately. Absolutely great. If you want to listen to audio files from google drive, speed them up/slow them down, buy the app.
Alright app, needa landscape mode
by TheAppMaven on 2019/11/26 02:35
I have been using this app for around 2 years and it's pretty good but it needs a landscape mode! I cannot see the file titles of books in portrait which is super annoying. I contacted the dev about this more than a year back and received a reply that we will get to this soon. Still over a year later no landscape mode. Disappointing.
Bug with iOS 13
by Dalton Rooney on 2019/09/22 20:42
I’ll start by saying this is the best audiobook player I’ve found for iOS. Especially that you can stream directly from cloud storage. I would like to see Dark Mode supported in iOS 13, and I’ve found a bug. When my iPad is in landscape orientation, the screen is blank. When I rotate the screen to portrait, the app work fine.
This is the one!
by Randysusan on 2019/04/25 14:55
This is what iBooks should have been. Working great. Also, developer was immediately responsive to an issue I had and showed me an easy fix. I recommend highly. I have 10 other audiobook player apps but this one works the best.
Good, almost great
by Mgorgan on 2019/03/07 00:44
Works well, I wish I could sort by release date as well considering large library.
Great app and customer service
by Ozzman07 on 2019/02/07 20:16
I just purchased the audiobook version of CloudBeats the other day and so far I’m really happy and impressed with the app. I was looking for something to avoid having to use iTunes to synch my audiobooks. iTunes has “glitched out” on me more than once and deleted all of the music and books from my phone. I have all of my media stored on a Synology NAS so my ideal situation was to find a way to at least be able to pull the media down from within an app. CloudBeats does that but takes it further and lets me stream from my Synology - and also several other cloud services. So far, the app is doing everything I want it to do. If you’re looking for a way to either stream or download your remote media, I definitely recommend CloudBeats. The support from the developer is excellent, too. I posted a question on the app’s Web site and within minutes I had a response from Roman. I thought it was a typical automated “thanks for your question, we’ll get back to you in 24 hours” response but no, it was the answer to my question. He also immediately responded to my follow-up question. Kudos for great customer support! My only request is the ability to edit a cloud connection after it’s been created. Right now, if you need to make a change, you have to sign out which removes any files that you’ve downloaded. This probably isn’t a huge deal but I was having some issues getting my Synology visible to webDAV apps (not CloudBeat’s fault) and had to change my connection info a few times. Each time I had to log out and delete anything I had downloaded. Again, this is probably a limited case and now that I have it working, I probably won’t ever have to look at that setting again.
Don’t waste you money
by Artellestudio on 2019/01/22 00:01
The App doesn't understand parts of one book. You can't choose chapters, and this app doesn't show Chapters name, just one big timeline for all book. Doesn't play from Dropbox - you need to download your book.
Awesome App!
by Unstoppable One on 2018/12/25 17:35
You will LOVE this app! I have purchased at 5-10 apps like this one and it’s the BEST AVAILABLE! I would give it a 5-star rating, but I want a few features that would put it over the top: The ability to take notes while listening.
Best audiobook player!
by Jali en on 2018/11/19 20:13
Best player by far for those of us with large libraries. Supporters Dropbox integration; sorts your library by title, author, or genre. Able to browse your online library or download for offline playing. Supports Apple Watch. I’ve tried all other players and none come close.
Unparalleled!!!
by Sinrock7 on 2018/11/02 20:05
This app is amazing. And to speak to my title, it can’t be beat for features, ease of use, and flexibility. There isn’t an app around that can provide these features as well as CloudBeats. Fantastic work!!!!
No chapter support
by Ladiciuus on 2018/09/23 00:18
An audiobook player that does not support chapters. What a joke. Look elsewhere.
Does not work!!!
by OT87 on 2018/09/01 20:23
This app is not working as expected. Will ask for a refund. It is not responsive most of the time and I do not know why. If you want an Audiobook player, just sign up for Audible. This is my conclusion after trying lots of alternative.
Bugs bugs bugs
by fackball on 2018/08/09 16:17
Please fix the bugs in this. As i listen to one book, it keeps going to the next book even though i press the one i want. Very annoying
It’s ok
by tschnepf on 2018/05/27 17:27
It doesn’t handle multipart audiobooks very well which is the large part of all my audiobook files. If that feature was more polished I would up my rating.
When it works
by yourhighnessla on 2018/03/05 20:56
This app is gold, when it works. Best app out for streaming audio books from cloud storage. I’ve had issues with playing longggggg mp3 files 20-40hr long. Issues with files randomly starting over or when changing tracks getting stuck in a repeating loop. These are very annoying issues that I hope can be fixed soon.
Sounds tinny compared with same file and speed in cloudbeats music
by capedape on 2017/11/27 02:33
Sounds tinny compared with same file and speed in cloudbeats music. 2.5 speed playback with “optimize for voice” on in cloudbeats music sounds a lot better. Shouldn’t there be a voice optimize on this, the audiobook version of the app?
LOVE this App; iPhone X Support Missing!
by Dr. Mega-cool on 2017/11/17 23:32
This is a great app, one of my most used. No other Audiobook app connects to so many cloud services or offers more features-- it's truly in a class by itself! Any plans to update for the iPhone X? Maybe add a ‘dark more’ too? Thanks!
Sketchy
by J__________ on 2017/10/24 17:42
Love the concept, but a few major issues ruin the usability of this app. First, my cloud account became locked due to "suspicious activity" after signing in from this app. Luckily I used a siloed account. Then, when I reset passwords and signed in again via the app it nuked my entire library that I had downloaded before. So much for that book I was reading...
Awesome!
by soccergal4034 on 2017/10/08 14:30
This app does exactly what I need. It's great to have options between streaming from the cloud or downloading to save data. Perfect.
I already have CloudBeats and thought...
by TheAmazingB on 2017/10/07 20:16
I already have CliudBeats and thought this was was super special for AudioBooks.. honestly I can’t find any difference really... they both seem to have the same features. If there are features, it is not apparent. I’m giving it 4 stars because I feel like I purchased something I already have. Don’t get me wrong. It is the best one of its kind... just don’t know why I purchase
Great for audio studying
by Doc Molly on 2017/10/03 15:42
I study Spanish and medicine through audio lessons and this application is ideal. It allows you to slow down and speed up the playback, place bookmarks and sync with popular clouds such as dropbox. The only feature that I would like added is the ability to leave notes attached to bookmarks.
Great app!
by elitusprime on 2017/08/27 05:33
Great app! Use it everyday.
Just what I needed
by Anon dude on 2017/04/21 09:36
Extremely helpful for organizing my audiobooks separate from music
Incredibly Useful
by Booey86 on 2017/03/07 12:14
I listen to mostly audiobook, long lectures, and podcasts on my phone so this version of Cloudbeats is right up my alley. It’s very functional and reliable, and the recent update has made the app’s response time lighting fast. I also love the option to backup my playlists because I often switch devices. This is one of my most used apps, and I highly recommend it.
WebDAV broken
by the evalutaor on 2016/10/09 18:00
Hot garbage, just wasted 5 dollars. WebDAV doesn't appear to be implemented correctly, I'm able to successfully connect to my Synology NAS from several other IOS apps.
Only one 30-second rewind per track?
by Nefficus1 on 2016/05/23 13:17
What is that? Could be a great audiobook solution but virtually worthless with that limitation
Can only do 30 second rewind once
by ariscris on 2016/05/12 14:55
I've been looking for a cloud audiobook player that could do a 10 or 30 second rewind. I thought this app would be perfect but found that rewind only works once. So weird. :(
