I get to know about Cozy the open source audiobook player and it became a benediction for me to pursue my love for literature. I being extremely fond of literature love to get in touch with literary elements but the busy schedule somehow refrains me from investing time on reading.

  1. This seems a niche application as it provides only flatpak install. Basically it’s gnome app and cannot be easily installed in other environments.

  2. I used to have Linux, at the same time I’ve been searching for an app where I can compile all my audiobooks and luckily found you. All the potential I’m looking for the app is already in here, let’s try for the first time. I’m looking forward to it.
