If you constantly find yourself struggling to find your place in audio books or can’t mark the classroom lectures you need to review with ease, you’ll find 2 bucks is absolutely worth the price of admission.
With a beautiful user interface and an intuitive wheel navigation system that builds and improves upon Apple’s own work, AudioGopher is one of the best audio tools we’ve tested in quite some time.
Quite simply, the interface couldn’t be easier to use, or easier on the eyes. It’s a joy to play with, and refreshing to find an iPhone app that’s so easy to comprehend.
AudioGopher has seamless integrations with all the tracks in your audio library, which means there’s no need to re-sync anything: it’s play and go, all the way.
You can jump around in an audio book to find just the right chapter, or navigate your way through your favorite podcast to find all the juicy bits, or skip through the applause and patter during a concert recording.
The jog wheel is surprisingly precise: it’s easy to control whether you want to jump ahead a few seconds or a couple of hours on the track.
Simply tap to place markers on the audio track you’re listening to, unless you’re listening an audiobook with existing chapter markers, which are automatically imported so you don’t have to re-enter them.
Adding your own markers is perfect if you like to record your lectures, and want to note information that you’ll be tested on later.
Whether you’re a student or long since graduated, audiophiles of all stripes can find something to love about this insanely helpful and intuitive iPhone app.
