Default Can someone recommend an audiobook player?

Please Login to Remove!

I've tried using the "Music" app on my BB Bold 9000 to play long MP3 programs (not necessarily audio books). Sometimes, when my BB auto-locks (my corporate IT people force it to lock after 30 minutes), the music player application is exited, and it doesn't even remember that it had been playing anything.

It doesn't do this all the time, but maybe about 1/3 of the time when I wake it up from a locked state, the music player has forgotten, and I have to then find where I was in the file manually. In a three hour program, this is REALLY annoying and time-wasting.

First, is there a way I can make the music player remember that it had been playing a file, and its position in that file?

Second, if not, then is there a different app that people could recommend that would work? I don't need it to shop for books, I don't need it to decode protected content. I just want an MP3 player that doesn't forget its position.

I have the BlackBerry Podcast app, and it remembers my position in files in its library, but it can only play MP3s that it has downloaded through podcast RSS feeds, and I haven't found a way to take a file I get from another source and play it with the Podcast app.

I'd appreciate any help here.
