As the new Music application in iOS 5 seems to have an extremely broken behavior for some audiobooks, I am looking for alternatives.
I have several audio books that have a series of many MP3 files, one for each chapter (e.g http://www.amazon.com/dp/1455826235/). In iTunes I had all files for these audio books set to have the 'Audiobook' kind.
It seems like the new behavior for the Music application is to play the current selected track until the finish, and then stop playing, it does not continue on to the next track like on a music album.
I do not want to revert back to an earlier version of iOS, and I would like to avoid having to change all my audiobooks to be seen by iTunes as music, but how can I listen to my audiobooks?
I have also tried playing the audio books through the Audible app, and through Bookmark. But neither of them show that I have any audiobooks on my device, but I am certain I have them, since I can play them in the music app, one chapter at a time. I was able to see them and play them using those apps before I upgraded to iOS 5.
Is there any fixes for this? Is there any external apps that can actually play audiobooks syced from iTunes in iOS 5.
