About Skip Ahead

Skip Ahead is an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch with a single key function - to provide the user with the ability to easily fast forward 30 seconds in the currently playing track.

Why is this useful?
Are you listening to audiobooks? Podcasts? Music? Are you doing this while driving, running, excercising or doing any other activity that you would prefer to concentrate on? Have you ever tried to skip over that boring chapter intro, these tedious podcast commercials or that tiresome sax solo by aunt Elsie in the middle of your favorite song? If so, this app may be useful to you. The second large button is for stepping ten seconds back, useful when you want to hear something again or if you stepped a tad too far forward earlier.
