iOS: The DRM-free audiobook business isn't exactly booming (though sites like Downpour and LibriVox are out there to help you find some), but that doesn't mean you might not have audiobook files sitting in your Dropbox account. If you do, Bound is a great player. While you can always manually add an audiobook to something like Audible or iBooks, it's a bit of a pain to do so. Bound solves that by linking up to your Dropbox account. Once your account is linked, you can download audiobook files directly from Dropbox into Bound, where you can play them with all the benefits of a modern audiobook player. When you pause a book, it remembers where you were and you can use bookmarks if you'd like. Beyond that though, don't expect any bells or whistles. It's also a bit of a bummer that Bound only links to Dropbox and not other services, nor does it allow you to stream files instead of download them. Still, as a very simple audiobook player that makes it easy to get files from your computer to your phone, it does what it sets out to do.

When I try and retrieve the little thing it lets me get really close to grabbing it but at the last minute inevitably slips through my fingers, teasing me to the point of madness. Any ideas?
