GoodReader Audio Player Buttons & Controls

When you tap an audio file name to open it, an audio player appears as a standalone popup control panel, and an audio "Player" button appears in the menu, allowing you to listen to audio and control the playback. A single track or the entire contents of a folder can be played. Repeat and shuffle options are also supported.



GoodReader`s Audio Player offers you a standard set of audio controls:



  • Play, Pause, Stop, Rewind, Fast Forward, Previous Track, Next Track.
  • Rewind by 30 seconds, Skip 30 seconds.
  • Repeat, Shuffle.
  • Scrubber for direct playback positioning.
  • Volume control.
  • Switch between playing just one track vs. playing all the audio in the current folder.


You can hide the player window while still listening to music. You can also put GoodReader into the background and even lock the device, while still listening to your audio. To do so, enable the "Audio files excluded from Apple`s Data Protection" setting, in the Security settings.

My iPad would be useless for academia without GoodReader

The best file management system for iOS. Not only I use this for music, videos and audiobooks on my iPhone, I use this app exclusively for PDF books and I love the annotation feature for iPad Pro. Now let`s see if there is going to be a screen sharing and live collaboration option coming to this app in near future. I love this app and if I have to rely on iBooks and Apple Musics, I would have gone crazy. Thanks and keep up the good work guys.
