That's why I wanted to make sure before buying Audio Butler....
Thanks again for suggesting Audio Butler.
Oh right, I see. Thats not something thats ever worried me because 99% of my listening is to books. I just pop back in to music, whatever I feel like listening to.
An interesting thing I just observed was that when playing an audiobook you were playing in the other app, the ipod remembers where you were up to when you access it there. Its probably normal behaviour, I just thought it was a nice thing.
