Love the program's simplicity, and its low cost. But there remains two major downsides which I'm sure have been thoroughly covered. Only I'm vexed enough about it that I want the beat the dead horse a little more.

1. Tracks lose their place on the ipod. This is a HUGE issue. Prior to discovering ABB I would make all my tracks bookmarkable and then put them in a smart playlist that would be based on Album (book title) and Playcount = 0. This works like a charm and regrettably I may be going back to this. Yes I enjoy finding my books under Audiobooks in single large tracks with artwork. But if it don't play well, then what's the point?

2. Clipped junctions. I notice that where ever a track has been joined, the first half second (or first word) is completely cut off. You have to mentally put it back together. "...pter One." Now imagine that with one of those audiobooks that put 99 tracks per CD. Joining and listening to one of those will make you insane.

Last time I looked into #1 there was a discussion chain as long as the great wall of china and it all hinged on Apple's techies getting back to the ABB developers to work something out. Slow going no doubt. I bet if Splasm charged $1500 per license Apple would get back quicker, like they doubtlessly do for the Adobe folks. Sorry, getting grumpy.

Good luck to whoever can fix these two issues!
