Audiobook Builder 1.0
Splasm Software has released Audiobook Builder 1.0, an easy way to combine your Audiobook CDs into a single iPod-friendly Audiobook file. "Now you can take data directly from audio CDs, iTunes and/or QuickTime-compatible audio files and creates files that your iPod accepts as actual Audiobooks, visible in the Audiobooks menu. Tag your Audiobooks with a title, author and cover art. Set up enhanced chapter stops with custom artwork that you'll see while you listen to your color-capable iPod." The company notes that each Audiobook is bookmarkable -- both iTunes and your iPod remember the place when you take a break and resume listening later. Audiobook Builder is US $10 for single users and $15 for families. The Universal Binary application requires Mac OS X 10.4 and QuickTime 7.
