Pick Up Where You Left Off with AudioBookMark for Windows Phone 7
Inevitably, as Windows Phone 7 takes off, so will the number of apps available for it. One of the biggest uses of our current mobile devices is to store books and audio books. However, the apps currently available for WP7 are rather limited in what they can do. With this in mind, XDA member dbroome has released an app to bookmark the audio book that you are listening to in case you need to stop. It displays all your mp3 eBooks and will certainly help you keep up with them if you like jumping from book to book (listening to several books at the same time). The app is a rather useful addition for Microsoft’s brand new OS’ arsenal.
Please download it from the Zune marketplace and leave some feedback for the dev if you find any bugs with it.
I was frustrated by the lack of built-in support for mp3-based audiobooks so I wrote this app. It lets you load as many audiobooks as you have memory for. It remembers where you are in each file of each book (and of course, which file you are listening to for each book).
It has standard transport keys plus the ability to enter HH:MM:SS to skip directly to.
You can find more information in the application thread.

But it'll be a long time...
