A great app , very user friendly UI , a good start on the collection and categorization of audio books and podcasts . The audio books totally transform the norm of traditional book reading through flexibility interms of where , when and how to read / listen a book . The podcasts provide a new media platform to provide alternative voices to the traditional establishment media .
