    I've searched for about 3-4 hours now, tried several different apps, tried onedrive things, etc. I've found NOTHING.

    I've heard people say "this is the best app, it works great" but it lacks at a minimum 3-4 features I want.

    1.) My audio books are in m4b format converted from mp3's with chapter support.
    2.) The cover that's embedded in said m4b doesn't show up IF an app plays it
    3.) No speed control, I listen at 1.3x speed.
    4.) Remembering playback.

    ALL of these are required for me. I use the audible app for stuff that I purchase through audible, but for things like Graphic Audio and others I spend time making chapter marks and incorporating them into the files.

    Thankfully I've only had the phone for one day and can exchange it within a couple weeks if I can't find an answer. So far Windows 8 phone is pretty lack luster and I'm pretty underwhelmed with the fact they don't have an audiobook player that can do this

    My question is this? Did you research before you got the WP if it would do the one thing that seems so important to you. Not criticizing, wondering out loud.

    It's actually the one thing I didn't look at because I figured audiobooks were so ingrained in mobile phones there wouldn't be a problem.

    I DID actually find one that I like for $1.50 called Bard. It looks nice, allows you download your own covers, but it doesn't have the chapter markings for m4bs like I want.

    For whatever reason it's not very popular, but it's the absolute best I've seen so far!

    Try ELAudioBooks. It plays mp3 audiobooks, but it can save position already :) Besides app is in active development
