An app that will never exist

Currently, I have audiobooks I have purchased from LibroFM, as well as audiobooks I have out on loan from my library via both Libby/Overdrive and Hoopla. I have to go to three different apps to listen to them, or to even see what I’ve got. Inevitably, I end up missing or forgetting about books I’m listening to, or otherwise losing track of them.

It would be great to have an app that consolidated all of my audiobooks from all of the different sources in one spot. Sadly, there will never be such an app, because there’s no money to be made in it, and because none of various sources of audiobooks would cooperate.

Alternatively, I could stick to one audiobook at a time, but where’s the fun in that. another weblog
