Listen to Audio at a Faster Pace with Your iPhone

Here are my two favorite apps for iPhone for listening to audio at a faster pace:

For regular audio like audio books or lectures I love Ambling Book Player Pro. The reasons its worth buying are:

  • Speed up or slow down the audio up to 2x.
  • Built in sleep timer.
  • Resume where you left off and leave audio or written bookmarks.
  • Keep a history record of when you started and stopped, so that you can quickly figure out where you were yesterday when you heard that great bit you now want to take notes on but didn’t make a bookmark.
  • It can make a whole bunch of files into one large playlist. You can still track individual files in this larger file.

For podcasts I like Downcast. The reasons its worth buying are:

  • Speed up or slow down the audio up to 3x.
  • Built in sleep timer.
  • Resume where you left off.
  • Great sharing abilities for social media, email, etc.
  • Easily add podcasts from within the app.
  • Plenty of settings you can tweak for individual podcasts, or for the global program.
