To begin with, Audible already offer the option for users to download chapters one by one officially too. This is really time-consuming and they are only playable on Audible app as we mentioned above. It is OK if you have only a few Audible audiobooks, but it won't work if you have numbers of Audible audiobooks and chapters.
