One of my favorites! Great app! Only possible improvement I could think of would be the ability to delete files after I'm done with them. Other than that, perfect.

Great for language study The controls in this app make language study much easier. Interval rewind, bookmarks, and last place memory are fantastic for that purpose. It would be nice if I could launch it as a media player from the file browser. I would also like to have a list of all bookmarks in all files for quickly going to a bookmark in another file.

Love it 5 stars, for sure! Have been searching for an mp3 player that have interval skip control. This App does exactly what I want & it takes up very little space. Would be nice if I can change the Gingko leaf image.
