    I have had trouble being able to listen to an audiobook that I downloaded from itunes into my Incredible. I have downloaded two different apps to expedite the process of syncing with itunes, which are "doubletwist" as well as "Ambling Book Player" but none of them will let me listen to this audiobook. When I look at the suffix it says MPEG-4 audio (protected) and I'm wondering if there is a way to be able to make this work from my Incredible? Any ideas??

    I haven't tried with the factory music player, but I installed 'btunes' and it plays podcasts and audio books. Maybe give that a try? I also use tunesync for file transfer. So far so good.

    I think it is an audible.com file that I am trying to listen to and I just downloaded btunes and it looks positive at first, but it won't actually play the file...it's loads the book cover and everything, but no go.....:(

    Sorry I only go through iTunes for my music, etc. Haven't tried any other downloads.

    audible.com is ******ed for not putting out an android app quickly. I know one is coming "soon" but that usually means 6-12 months.

    Are you ****ing kidding me? The word r e t a r d e d is blocked but I can use other offensive words.

    Just kidding. I think it adds some mystery to my posts.

    Just search for audible in the market on your phone. Pops up fast.

    Unfortunately, this app only plays audible files. They might actually suck me into buying their books if they'd play mp3 audio books, too. I get those from my library.
