The Zune music player in WP7 is *terrible*; lacking in so many features it's useless for playing audiobooks or podcasts. Let's look at what it's missing:
- No audio scrubbing. If you're listening to a long podcast you have to hold down track-skip to fast-forward, but it's slow and if you move your finger even a tiny bit it'll just skip to the next track.
- No lyric support
- No option to resume mp3s from where you last stopped listening.
- No bookmarks
- WP7 constantly forgets the last track played.
It's pathetic, to the point that I still have to carry an ipod around in addition to my WP7 phone (for language learning purposes). Zune desktop client isn't any better; the interface is a confusing mess.
