    I'm missing a couple apps that i use on my note 5 that i would like loaded on this 6 plus. first off i download my audiobooks online (yes the not good way) on android there is a app called smart audiobook player that plays the audiobook and saves the position no matter if it's closed out or not. i have been using the stock music app to play them but when it's closed it loses the place in the book......

    the other app i'm missing are emulator apps for psp and ps1 also supernes also how do i load these on my storage. looks like the only way to get those is jailbreaking which i don't want to do.

    help with greatly appreciated i would also like a file explorer app if there is one.

    I'm using iBooks to play sideloaded audiobooks and it works great. Yes, it does save your position in the book.

    When I open iBooks I don't see my audiobook files.

    Hmmm, are your audiobooks marked as audiobooks? When I sideload them into iTunes they usually load into Music and I have to go into the metadata to mark them as audiobooks.
    Control - click on the book
    Get Info
    Edit Multiple Items
    Options
    Media Kind - choose Audiobook
    Save

    Then sideload it into the iphone, it should go automatically into Books or you can drop it there. I usually plug it into the computer to do that part because I've not found a way to do it wirelessly. Hope this works for you!

    lolz! Sorry, man, that's what I do, maybe there's some other simpler solution out there, but I don't know it. I was just grateful that I could sideload audiobooks and play them at all. Can't do that anymore with music files on the latest version of itunes/music app.
