Great augmentation for Plex. Best in class design. Needs Bookmarks.
Beautiful design. Does what it says. Does it well. Great augmentation for Plex. For context: I am moving over from the Bound App (and several other prior). I listen to a dozen or two audiobooks each year on top of hundreds of hours of podcasts in Overcast. The only glaring absence this app is bookmarks: if I fall asleep listening to an audiobook, bookmarks are a huge help in finding the point I last recall. If it could pull sleep data from Apple Health to automatically mark where I likely fell asleep I’d find some way to give this app six stars. Voice Boost EQ feature produces some audio clipping on well-mastered books, but is helpful for lesser sources. I understand good voice boost algorithms are a major undertaking in audio processing, so I’m still glad a simple EQ fix is offered. It’d be great if time skipping buttons were smart enough to increase the skipping interval with repeated taps to allow faster search (like Overcast). Still, I’m aware of no other audiobook app with this feature, so it’s not a relative shortcoming. Five stars for Prologue, because grade inflation is real, and this app deserves notice. Insta-buy for me, and I plan to throw in a tip with each book I finish.
I never bother to write reviews for apps generally unless they’re awful. This is the literal opposite of that. This app is the perfect plex based audiobook experience. Between time left in book actually being listed to consider me listening at faster than 1x speed, a full history of when I listened and to where (I listen to books when nodding off in bed and sometimes lose track of my place if metadata isn’t top notch.) I also love being able to download the books I’m listening to as well. All in all, awesome experience anyone that doesn’t give this 5/5 has no brain.
Excellence executed beautifully
The app is very nicely done. It’s among my favorite apps to use. I’m usually listening to audiobooks more often than anything else. Managing them through iTunes has been my go to forever, and it was annoying that my Plex server handled audiobooks so poorly. Prologue solves that pain point just like Overcast and Apollo solve the podcasts and reddit pain points. The developer has and continues to do a really good job trying to make the app feel as native and intuitive to use as possible. The whole app and UX is beautifully executed. I really enjoy using the app.
Set up your audiobook library the way they tell you to and it works perfectly! Any trouble I’ve had has always been a Plex issue, not a Prologue issue. Today Plex mismatched a book title. I fixed the mismatch in Plex and Prologue updated without losing my place in the book! I would like to see prologue backup 15seconds upon spotty Bluetooth interruption pauses like it does for notification interruptions but I don’t know if that’s possible to implement.
The best audio book app out there.
I used iSub for a long time and was always frustrated with the performance and the UI. Then one day I stumbled across Prologue. What a difference. It even has Apple CarPlay support (which is where I listen to most of my books - an hour commute each direction every day). To the developer - thanks for making such a great app. Keep up the most excellent work!
This app is perfect. I use Plex Media Server to consolidate all of my audiobooks from different vendors into a single library and this app does the rest as far as tracking reading progress/completions and syncing to the device. I happily paid the $4.99 and highly encourage it if you want an excellent app for managing an audiobook library. Plex really ought to buy it from the developer and integrate it into the Plex app.
What everyone has been waiting for
For years, our cries to Plex for better audiobook support has fallen on deaf ears. Finally one brilliant developer has taken it upon themself to create an app that we have been begging for. The developer is super responsive to feedback and has a beautiful road map of features to be added. Will continue to financially support this project since it’s free to use.
Great alternative for real control of your audiobooks
I have a ton of audiobooks I have bought over the years, however loading them on my phone was always a pain. This app let me load them on my own Plex server and have access to them when I travel without any funny business with iTunes or trying to store them in a cloud service.
Great app! I wish I knew about it sooner.
I stumbled upon this app on Reddit last week and just configured my Plex library for audiobooks over the weekend. This app works great and has most of the features I would want. My only request would be for a Way to see how much time is remaining in the book Based on time left in the current track and the upcoming tracks.
I like my collections to be detailed and organized- that goes double for my audiobooks. I obsess about metadata. Prologue is the missing link in taking control of my audiobook experience. It’s responsive, has all the features you’d expect from a premium audiobook app, and the UI is elegant. If you care about managing your audiobook library, get Prologue immediately.
The best 3rd party Plex app!
OMG! I wish I could give this way more than 5 stars! This basically opens a whole new world to Plex users! I never leave reviews for apps(bad habit), but when I saw how much effort was not only put into its functionality, but its presentation also, I could not resist. This is just so amazing, I am truly blown away. Imma go back to listening to my book now!
The only way to do Audiobooks on Plex.
I have a huge audiobook collection I’ve purchased over the years. Dealing with iTunes or a number of other apps was always a frustrating experience. But no longer with Prologue. Now I just load my Audiobooks into Plex (using an Audible agent somebody wrote) and there’s literally no other hassle. A++!
I had been looking for an app like this for years. It’s some great work. Worth getting the full version, just so you can download the books to save your data. I do have a suggestion on a feature. Allow bookmarking, so we can come back to that spot again if desired. Keep up the good work!!
Best app for audiobooks
I don’t do many app reviews, but I got this app for my audiobook collection on Plex. Plex doesn’t do well with playing audiobooks. Even the Plex amp app isn’t that great, it is mostly geared towards music. Prologue has everything I need. Excellent in tracking your play even when switching between books. With the premium version you can download the audiobooks so you can listen offline which is a feature well worth the price. Lots of other features on the app I’m not mentioning. Bottom line..if you have an audiobook library on a server or computer prologue is best app to play the audiobooks.
Got Plex and audiobooks? Look no further!
Have a plex server for all my personal media server needs but it doesn’t handle audiobooks well at all. Prologue steps in and makes it work like a dream. Track where you left off across multiple titles, sleep timer, playback speed, the list goes on.
