Useful audiobook playback feature

Recommended Posts

I mostly use Poweramp to listen for audiobooks. Trying a lot of other audiobook-oriented players I found Poweramp is really perfect and most stable one. But it will be nice if few features extremaly useful for book listening will be implemented.

Not sure these features were not requested but I did not found them here :) So please forgive me if I'm repeating...

  • First and most anticipated one is 10 second rewind using headset button. Poweramp already can jump next/previous track using headset button but it would be beautiful if user can choose action to perform on each button event individually (including 10 seconds rewind)
  • Another feature is just an extention of previous one: auto-rewind track after pause. The seek back time could depend on how long listening pause was. E.g. it may be 10 second if playback was paused for more than 1 minute and 30 seconds if audiobook was paused for an hour or more.
  • And last feature many audiobook players have is a "book-based" seek bar. You may view/change playback position not for current fragment (track) only but for whole book (folder).

Thank you!

Max seems rather reluctant to add extra support for audiobook, podcast, or indeed any other long-form audio source material such as concerts, radio show recordings, etc. His priorities seem to lie in other directions. I would love a simple 10-seconds rewind / 30-seconds forward facility for example. I have one three-hour (!) podcast that is taking me FOREVER to listen to in short segments as it is really hard to navigate back to (for example) 1:34:30 after exiting to listen to something else in the meantime.
