Phone state: Used to pause during a call. Otherwise it would only be muted by the system.
Wake lock: So the playback isn't stopped when you turn off the screen. Also for some optional features like disabling the auto screen off during playback.
Disable keyguard: In case you only want to use the app's lock screen. (And not return to the default one afterwards.)
Write/delete external storage: For some internal files in <your music dir>\.MortPlayer, e.g. cached folder covers from ID3 tags and track order lists.
Internet: Ads (AdMob)
Boot completed: To reschedule the alarm clock after boot.
Tasks: For "StopService" activity, to avoid the system returns to player afterwards

If it would pause the audio book during a phone call it would be absolutely perfect. But still best apply for audiobooks out there.
Best app for listen music!!!!
Excellent app for audiobooks. Wish it could adjust play speed.
Best player for audiobooks!
Best audiobook app available. Dev listens and is hard at work tweaking constantly. Will deffo buy when it goes alpha.
Works great and does what I need.
Love it...has worked perfectly for listening to my audio books...does everything I want it to
This app is fantastic for books in MP3 format. Bookmarks are a great feature. Motorola Droid.
Great player, just needs variable playback speeds.
A really great way to listen to audiobooks. I use this every day while driving to/from work, or working around the house.
