    Ipod app and they way it handles books and podcasts.

    Two major annoyances. I hope there's some sort of option to change this even if it means jailbreaking.

    a. Podcasts have long titles, there has to be a way for them to "crawl" on the screen when you select them so you see the full title. It's a very important omission and I think everyone who has lots of podcasts will agree.

    b. Even more annoying for me, and inexplicable is how audiobooks parts are shown. If you have a book say in four aac files for every one of its four chapters (each one with their respective name on the file). You can see the name of the chapter, but when you view it in ipod the only thing you see is part x of y, you don't get to see the title. This makes books with lots of titled part files to be almost unusable, especially non fiction books: Oh let me go to the chapter where this guy talks about that issue, oh wait my chapter titles are gone!

    The devil is in the details.

    If you feel strong about these two as well please leave feedback to apple.



    If you know a work around please do say so.

    I would also like to point out that this behaviour is replicated on the touch and the classic.
