Ever listened to a podcast while driving and wished that you could fast forward half a minute or so with a simple click?

Do you also find the iPod time slider too sensitive and not useful, especially while operating a vehicle?

Skip Ahead is an extremely easy to use listening tool for podcasts, audiobooks and music. It is designed with the car commuter in mind so all controls are extra large and therefore easy to read and press. The app's main feature is that it allows the listener to skip forward 30 seconds with a single push on a very large button. A somewhat smaller button will cause the audio to step 10 seconds back, designed to be useful in case skipping forward 30 secs takes the user a tad too far.

Other controls include a pause/play button and display of time line and audio artwork.

What's New in Version 2.1

We listened, the Play/Pause button is now much larger.
This version also fixes a bug that causes the app to crash in iOS 9.
iOS 9 also introduced another issue that prevents the app from working for podcasts and audiobooks. This cause of this issue has not yet been identified. If you rely on Skip Ahead to control playback for podcasts and audiobooks, upgrading to iOS 9 is not yet recommended.

4/5 stars

2.0 skips ahead in the right direction

I really like the addition of swiping and the bigger play/pause button. This is still my favorite audiobook/podcast app.

Two enhancements that'd be great for 2.0+ would be a sleep-mode defeat option and a progress bar with elapsed and/or remaining time.

Keep up the good work!

5/5 stars

Worth every penny for iPod touch & car listening

This has been great for podcasts and audiobooks when you need to skip easily past boring parts, intros, and etc...

3/5 stars

I really needed this app.....to be a little bit better. Please fix enlarge Play/Pause

This is a very useful app. and could become my favorite if the developer would make the artwork function as a play/pause button. The current button is so small that it takes me multiple attempts to hit it, and when I'm driving it makes it unusable. An option to swipe up or down for Play/Pause would also be great. It also mentions a timeline in the product description - there is only a time counter that doesn't tell you how far you are in the podcast. Maybe add two counters if a timeline is hard to add. One for total time and one for time played or even better the time left.

It would also be nice to be able to change the skip time in the options. It also could use a bit of polish. Sec. on the top has a period, sec on the bottom Back button does not. The top button would be better labeled as "Forward 30 sec." because the word Skip applies to forward or back.

If you fix the play/pause issue then I will change my review to 5 stars because this is an enormously useful app with one crippling flaw and a few missing features.
