Idea: MP3 Audiobook Player
View all ideas for this Category
  This consists of it being able to:
1. Play MP3 files with some kind of bookmarking mechanism for both file and the position in the file
2. Remember which file and where it was in that audiobook and resume at that point (even if you play another MP3 file) or go to some other mode (FM, Line-In, Voice Recording etc..) or shut down the player.
3. FFWD/REW over file boundaries with some kind of progressive scanning (to navigate long files)
4. FFWD/REW overlap files (ie. can rewind to beginning of file and continue the rewind into the previous file)
5. Compatible with 60 minute or longer MP3 files

If you can do these five simple things then the player is viable as a fully functional MP3 Audiobook Player. Durability along with the ability to save extra bookmarks, or allow instant book start on boot and out of sight navigation are bonuses.

Posted The Ultimate MP3 Audiobook Player Guide.

This expands on these basic MP3 Audiobook Player requirements, and alters 3 and 4 - understanding that these make the experience better, having a touch screen with some kind of "track click bar" to jump between sections of the file with a single click can replace this feature. This involves the bar showing the current progress in the file and allowing a single click to jump to another spot in the file.

Rewinding and Fast Forwarding over boundaries is still a desirable feature in Audiobook Players (though potentially annoying in Music mode in some cases) - So being able to find an option to enable/disable this behaviour would be desirable.
