Audiobook player designed to listen to long books

Product designer and developer: Yaroslav Samoylov

I had a problem while using an audio player: its scroll bar was small and wasn't comfortable when scrolling through my 10h+ long books. It was hard to be precise when scanning for a certain moment. I wanted to be able to scrub through an audio book for 10s or 4h in a convenient way.

My solution was to design a custom scroller. Its width is equal to the length of a book in seconds, so the bar goes all the way off the screen, and it scrolls using the native iOS ScrollView – which allows you to scroll both very slow and very fast with few swipes.

This way scanning is joyful and easy for any amount of time: seconds, minutes or hours.
