Default Fast forwarding through a long MP3

Please Login to Remove!

I listen to a lot of audio books and seminars on my iPod. I like the way I can easily and quickly fast-forward through a 1 hr+ audio
How is the Bold media player for quickly fast-forwarding through a large MP3?

Thanks

I'm not sure about the bold, but the other BB's work very well. I don't see why the Bold would be any different.

Default Bold audio - FF works well

I use a Bold for bedtime listening too. FF works very well.
As far as I can tell so far though, you cant set a sleep timer forit the player. Workaround is to setup a playlist which then stops at the end otherwise it just keeps on going through all tracks.
Also, doesnt seem to have a 'bookmark' option ie to go back in where you left off previously, reverts back to the start each time.
If anyone can advise otherwise Id be happy to hear about it.

If you use the Pearl to scroll up to the progress bar and then click on it you can scroll left and right to get to the position that you want. Then click again to go to that point that should allow you to fast forward really quick

On the Bold Media Player, your cursor can slide the progress bar (above the shuttle controls) to any playback point you want.

Wirelessly posted (Bold 9000)

I find its great for movies that arent more then 2+hrs. Any longer get be frustrating if your trying to find a specific spot as it jumps 5 mins at a time medium flick of the trackball, not hard enough and your going 1-5 seconds a time. I listen to a lot of 4hrs long radio podcasts and it can get frustrating to skip the commercials. If I have the time I try and cut it down to 1-1:30hrs.
