Easy to use downloading and Uploading of Audio files
I use this mainly for MP3 recording/playing, and it is useful for my on the go needs for recording information, and for listening to such conversations. It has a jack for a mic and radio, so if you want better sound/sound playback, I highly recommend using these features.
