I wrote wAudio because I needed a better experience for listening to audiobooks on my Apple Watch. Personally, I use wAudio at the gym, in my car, at work, or out for a walk. I generally finish one audiobook a week, so expect bug fixes & updates. Please leave reviews with information about bugs and/or feature requests.

NOTE DRM protected audio files are not supported.
NOTE the iPhone app has to temporarily export audio files from iTunes to transfer to Apple Watch to temporary file cache. Those temporary files are deleted to free up space on the iPhone as they are transferred to the Apple Watch.
NOTE wAudio does not access HealthKit data. It only needs permission to play audio in the background.
