Dear Lifehacker, I am an iPod user from way back, and have just recently purchased an Android phone. I still manage all my music and podcast downloads through iTunes as I still have an iPod. Anyone who uses iPods or iPhones will know that they have a nifty ability to remember the exact position in a podcast, even if you begin to play something else. To date, I have been unable to reproduce this effect on an Android device without having to use a completely different piece of software to manage and download my podcasts. Is there an app that can achieve this? Thanks, Restarted
