There is still problem with audiobooks. It is not critical but is definitely annoying.
If the audiobook is divided into multiple files, and for some reason you start to listening to, let’s say, second file for 5 minutes, then realise that there this is not a correct file and switch to previous one and start to listening from that file.
Then, when first file ends, clip sport continues to second file, but not from the begining, it automatically continues from the 5 minutes mark. This is not optimal as player makes gaps in narrative. In case of audiobook i never heard before i didnt even noticed that.
If you select file directly it should continue from last played position, but if same file is played in sequence, it should start from the begiginig of that file. Well, at least in my opinion. Or, perhaps, I’m doing something wrong.
While this has been less of an issue since Audible converted to a single file format, I can understand the frustration. If I recall correctly, previous Clip versions (Zip and +) would ask if you want to resume listening or start at the beginning if you return to a previously initiated segment.
I’m curious about the audiobook performance you experience. I returned to an older Clip for audiobooks since there was a distinct pause (like 20 - 30 seconds) between pressing the key and the playback beginning. Do you experience any delay?
My original intent for switching to the Clip Sport for audobooks was the longer battery life and the larger screen that can display both the current runtime and the total length.
