i'm looking to get an orange san francisco phone soon, as they are very cheap (under £100), hackable and get good reviews. anyone had any experience with this phone - also known as zte blade outside the uk?
i've got a question about the android media player - can you fast-forward and rewind within an mp3, by grabbing the thingy on the seek-bar with your finger? or even better, does it have a button to go back an arbitrary length of time?
the reason i ask is because i listen to a lot of audio-books whilst doing long boring jobs such as painting, gardening etc where i don't have to think too much about the job in hand, and so can engage my brain by listening to a lecture or novel. these audio files can sometimes be an hour long.
sometimes you lose concentration on the story, and may need to rewind a little. all the phone media-players i've used in the past won't let you rewind a minute or so within the file, but force you to start right at the beginning again, which can be annoying.
if the default player can't do this, can anyone recommend alternative software, preferably free?
