Pastime Audiobook Player is live on the App Store! It’s a very simple audiobook player designed for the visually impaired, for use on an iPad, though it works on the iPhone and iPod touch, and I’ve found it useful as a general purpose audiobook player.
The idea was to remove as much functionality as possible, so that you literally only play and pause your book. There is the ability to jump forward or back as well, but I wanted to make it difficult to accidentally lose your place.
